Our Resources

The Membership of the Kennel Club consists of a maximum of 1,500 UK Members plus 200 Overseas Members and a small number of Honorary and Honorary Life Members. 

A candidate must be proposed and seconded by members of the Club who have at least one year's standing, unless the candidate is an Associate (or Council Associate) of the Kennel Club of at least five years' standing, or the candidate has been an Affiliate and an Associate for at least two years and three years respectively, in which case no proposer or seconder is required. The final election of members is vested in the Kennel Club Board by ballot. 

On election, members members pay a year’s subscription for which they receive copies of each publication of the Kennel Club Stud Book, the Kennel Club Year Book, the Kennel Club Breed Records Supplement to the Stud Book, the Kennel Gazette, the Kennel Club Journal and a membership card (non-transferable) entitling the Ordinary Member access to Crufts and Discover Dogs shows and discounts as set by the Kennel Club Board.

Members are provided with social facilities at the Kennel Club's head office in Mayfair where a club room and restaurant are available for members and rooms may be booked for meetings by Breed Clubs and Canine Societies.
