More Information

Dogs may be entered in more than one heat. However, once qualified, exhibitors will be required to withdraw the qualified dog from any subsequent Junior Warrant qualifying heats. The organising society will be responsible for selecting the judge, who will have previously awarded Challenge Certificates in at least one breed.

Eligible dogs do not need to be entered for the Open Show in order to compete in the Junior Warrant Competition Qualifier, although entries must be made prior to the show's closing date and be accompanied by the relevant entry fee. The maximum number of dogs for the qualifying heat is 64.  If it is likely that this number will be exceeded acceptance of entries will be on a first come first served basis.

If you have any questions please call the Services Team on 01296 318540.
