Docking of dogs

The removal of dog’s tails was banned in England on 6th April 2007, Wales on 28th March 2007 and Northern Ireland on 1st January 2013 - excluding that for working breeds. In Scotland, tail docking was banned with no exemptions from 30th April 2007. All dogs docked prior to this date may still compete at Scruffts. However, dogs docked after these dates wishing to compete in England, Wales or Northern Ireland may not compete as the law states they cannot do so at any event in which the public pays a fee. Dogs docked after this date and wishing to compete in Scotland may still compete as the Scottish parliament placed no restrictions on dog showing within their docking legislation.

Please make sure that

You abide by the regulations of the show not to bring to the show any dog which has contracted or has been knowingly exposed to any infectious or contagious disease during the 21 days prior to the show or which is suffering from a visible condition which adversely affects its health or welfare.

No dog present in the Scruffts competition should ever have been subject to a Court Control Order or a Contingent Destruction Order under the Dogs Act 1871 or the 1991 Dangerous Dogs Act. The dog owner may be required to assist The Kennel Club in verification of this aspect from time to time.
