Kennel Club in the news

The Kennel Club Press Office secures lots of positive press coverage across radio, television, online, and print publications.

Take a look below at some of the recent media coverage the Kennel Club has achieved as the first port of call for any canine-related matter, and the constant improvement of dog health and happiness.

Holyrood Dog of the Year

The first ever Holyrood Dog of the Year competition took place on 8th May in the Scottish Parliament Gardens, at Holyrood. The winning dog and their MSP owner were chosen by a panel of judges and a winner of a ‘pawblic’ vote was also announced. The event is organised by the Kennel Club and Dogs Trust.


Almost 22,000 dogs of all shapes and sizes join more than 160,000 dog lovers headed to the NEC in Birmingham for the world’s biggest celebration of dogs. The event sae the UK’s most heroic dogs rewarded in the prestigious Eukanuba Friends for Life competition; the nation’s favourite crossbreeds compete in the Scruffts grand final; the world’s most athletic canines battling it out in dog sports including agility and flyball; and the world-famous Best in Show competition.

Out of Order – Dog and Owner Access Report Launch

The Kennel Club published a report into the impact of Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPOs), and other access restrictions on dog walkers. Highlighting both good and bad practice, it contains recommendations for both government and local authorities to reduce the risk of unfair and disproportionate restrictions on responsible dog walkers.

Discover Dogs

In October thousands of dogs descended on the ExCeL Centre in London for the Kennel Club’s annual Eukanuba Discover Dogs event. It is a fantastically fun event for the whole family and is a great way to meet and greet almost 200 different breeds of dog as well as watch competitions, see displays and shop at many trade stands.
