Important message from The Kennel Club regarding awards gained at all licensed events

The Kennel Club would like to apologise to exhibitors/competitors at forthcoming licensed events that the operational issues currently being experienced will impact upon the issuing of award certificates by our office across all activities, e.g. Challenge Certificates, Warrants and Champion titles.  

For this reason, we are reminding everyone that it is permitted to enter events or classes where eligibility is dependent upon awards and/or titles which are pending confirmation, e.g. moving from Limit to the Open class at dog shows. Indeed exhibitors must do this. Also, in the case of Champion Stakes, exhibitors do not need to wait for their dog’s champion status to be confirmed before entering. 

For any issues which may arise regarding eligibility, please email us. We appreciate the patience and forbearance of exhibitors and competitors at this time and will provide updates in due course.
