The Junior Warrant is an award for pedigree dogs from the ages of 6 to 18 months which have won a series of first prizes at both Open and Championship shows. Achieving a Junior Warrant is one of the highest levels of success for young pedigree dogs.    

The Junior Warrant Winner of the Year competition is held annually and is for dogs which have gained the title of Junior Warrant during the previous year.  There were 12 heats held throughout the UK in August and September, with five dogs and a reserve selected by the judge at each of the heats and those dogs were then invited to the semi-finals at the Kennel Club's Discover Dogs event at Earls Court, London.

The Junior Warrant Winner of the Year competition final will take place on 5 March 2015 and will be just one of the fascinating activities taking place at Crufts, to celebrate healthy, happy dogs from 5-8 March 2015 at the NEC, Birmingham.
