Kennel Club child protection policy updated

18th July 2019 - 3:41 PM

The Kennel Club has updated its Child Protection Policy to include a section dealing with online safety and social media.


In making this update, the Kennel Club is mindful of the fact that its International Agility Festival is due to take place next month, an event attended by a large number of children including Young Kennel Club (YKC) members. In view of this, any adult for whom this document is relevant is urged to make themselves familiar with its content as soon as possible.


The Kennel Club also points out that there is an email address, listed in the policy, to which concerns can be reported completely confidentially and with discretion and if further help or guidance is needed then this will be provided.


The Kennel Club’s Child Protection Policy is accessible on the Kennel Club website at as well as on the YKC website at
