Breeds Liaison Council – Your voice at the Kennel Club

The Breeds Liaison Council is made up of representatives for every breed and has 30 Group Delegates who attend each meeting. Representatives are elected for a three year term to act as a channel of communication between Breed clubs, competitors, and the Kennel Club. The Council was set up to represent grass-roots opinion within the sport at the Kennel Club, and to promote a better understanding among competitors of how the Kennel Club functions. It meets twice per year, and representatives hold meetings prior to each council meeting to provide a platform for proposals and discussion items to be raised. The meetings also provide feedback from the Kennel Club on recent developments and decisions.

The Council reviews the Show Regulations and advises the Kennel Club on any changes that may be needed, and is actively involved in strategic planning to enable Showing to continue and flourish. Council proposals can result in fundamental changes in Kennel Club policy and the Kennel Club values the important work the Councils do.

Council members are always interested in hearing the views and ideas of competitors, and will be seen competing at, judging at or managing many shows during the year. Minutes and agendas for recent and forthcoming Council meetings can be found at the foot of this page.

Representatives are elected for a period of three years and the current term of office of all Kennel Club Liaison Council representatives ends on 31 December 2021. Representatives are listed below.
