Championship Obedience Status

The Kennel Club would like to advise obedience competitors that three obedience clubs have relinquished their Championship status.

Cambridgeshire Dog Training Club and British German Shepherd Dog Training Club have relinquished their Championship status with effect from 2016. Eastleigh & District Dog Training Club has also relinquished its Championship status with effect from 2017.

Any society which would be interested in applying for future Championship obedience status should submit a presentation for consideration. Please note that it will be necessary to select a date that does not coincide with another Championship obedience show.

Applications should include details of the society's committee structure and show management team, as well as providing information on the proposed show venue, stating the facilities available for judges, competitors, dogs and spectators.

Presentations should be submitted via email to Rachel Mansfield, Working Dog Activities Team and received by 18th March 2016.
