No changes to The Kennel Club stud book bands for 2021

The Kennel Club has announced that there will be no changes to the Stud Book bands for 2021. Therefore, all breeds will remain in the same bands as for 2020; this will apply for all shows until 31 December 2021 and will be reviewed at the end of this year.

Kathryn Mansfield, Kennel Club Secretary, said: “As many will already have surmised, due to last year’s cancellation of the vast majority of shows there was insufficient up-to-date entry statistics available to conduct an effective review of the Stud Book bands, therefore breeds are to remain in the previously published bands.”

The full list of 2021 Stud Book bands can be found on The Kennel Club website.
