The Kennel Club and Fosse Data Systems Ltd have launched a new
online system for field trial and gundog working test entries and
management, which is now available for competitors and secretaries
The online system has been designed to streamline the process when
entering and managing field trials and gundog working tests, and
features include secure online entry, automatic draws
and online payments by credit or debit card, as well as
comprehensive and secure management tools for field trial
secretaries. This will prevent undelivered or late entries sent
through the post, making entering events more time and cost
The system has been designed and developed by Fosse Data to Kennel
Club specifications and reflects the previous paper-based process
to ensure that the transition is as smooth as possible, with users
being presented with a familiar format for the electronic system.
For electronic payments, an administration fee will be processed by
Fosse Data Systems Ltd for card payments and full payment taken for
those competitors who are selected in the draw for a run at a trial
or gundog working test.

offer full customer support for those who need help or guidance
when using the new electronic system."
