Working trials and obedience (WTO)
Breeds which have the letters WTO after their name across our services are breeds which are not recognised by The Kennel Club UK but are recognised by a National Kennel Club with which The Kennel Club UK has a reciprocal agreement. WTO stands for working trials and obedience, and refers to dogs which are registered on the Activity Register (which was previously known as the WTO Register). Dogs on the Activity Register can compete in agility, heelwork to music, obedience, rally and working trial competitions.
Please be aware, due to these breeds not being registered on the Breed Register, you will be unable to find further information on breeders, judges or clubs for them at this moment in time.
Imported Breed Register (IMP)
Breeds which have IMP after their name across our services are newly recognised breeds which are not yet sufficiently established within the UK. Upon initial recognition, breeds are placed on the Imported Breed Register (IMP) until they are deemed eligible for transferal to the Breed Register.
Please be aware, while you will be able to find general information on these breeds, as they are not on the Breed Register you will be unable to find further information on breeders, judges or clubs for them at this moment in time.
If you have any questions please email us.
The Kennel Club cannot facilitate the vetting of breeders advertising on Find a Puppy on behalf of a puppy buyer nor can we guarantee the accuracy of any statement made by any breeder advertising on Find a Puppy.
The Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities involving Animals) (England) Regulations 2018 provides that licensed breeders must provide a recognisable photograph. A puppy buyer is advised to ensure that you meet both the breeder and see the dam of the litter and the puppy itself before committing to a purchase of the dog.
