Search Hotting Up for Breed Health Coordinator of the Year


The Kennel Club has announced the nominees for its inaugural Breed Health Coordinator of the Year competition, designed to reward the hard work and dedication of its network of health coordinators across the 217 breeds recognised in the UK.

Nominations from breed clubs and councils were invited for the award and five finalists will shortly be chosen by an expert panel of judges, comprising world renowned canine ophthalmologist, Professor Sheila Crispin; Head of Canine Genetics at the Animal Health Trust, Dr Cathryn Mellersh; international championship show judge, Frank Kane; and Head of Health and Research at the Kennel Club, Aimee Llewellyn-Zaidi.

The list of nominees is as follows:

Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club Secretary, said: “The Kennel Club congratulates the breed health coordinators who have been nominated for this award. This role involves a lot of hard work and is often driven by an individual’s determination and vision. We wish all nominees the best of luck as we draw nearer to selecting an overall winner and we really hope the breeds will get behind their own health champions.”

The Kennel Club will provide information on how to vote online once the judging panel has selected its five finalists.
