Hosted by the Kennel Club, organisers of the world’s greatest dog show, Crufts, Question Time events have been held throughout the UK for over a decade.

It is particularly hoped that attendees will take the opportunity to ask questions about the initiatives which have recently emerged from the Dog Health Group as well as the Dog Show Promotion and Judges Competency Framework working parties.
