Heelwork To Music Societies Invited To Host A Crufts 2017 Qualifier

26 October 2015    10:00

An opportunity has arisen for Kennel Club registered heelwork to music societies to apply to host a Premier Heelwork to Music Crufts 2017 qualifying heat, for both heelwork to music and freestyle. This is to replace the Blackpool heat, held in August.

In order for societies to be considered, they need to be fully registered for heelwork to music (HTM) and have previously held shows. They should also submit their intended show date, which must not coincide with another HTM show.  Applications should include details of the society's committee structure and show their management team, as well as provide information on the proposed show venue, stating the facilities available for judges, competitors, dogs and spectators.

Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club Secretary, said: "This is an excellent opportunity for a registered heelwork to music society to give those who attend their shows the chance to qualify for Crufts, and showcase their talents in heelwork to music at the biggest and best dog event in the world.

"We hope a number of societies will want to get involved in and we look forward to receiving their applications."

Please apply in writing to either or Working Dog Activities Team, The Kennel Club, Clarges Street, London, W1J 8AB, or for further information call 020 7518 1013.  Applications must be received by 20th November 2015.

Further details regarding heelwork to music and registered societies can be found on the Kennel Club website.
