The Committee looks forward to welcoming exhibitors and visitors in August 2021
Welsh Kennel holds a Championship dog show in August every year. It is visited annually by thousands of dogs, exhibitors and the general public. The show classifies all of the UK Kennel Club registered breeds, rare breeds and import register breeds, as well as holding other canine disciplines such as dogs competing in agility classes and championship level obedience. Everyone is welcome, even a spectator dog at a small administrative charge.
Welsh Kennel Club hosts the Welsh Top Dog and Welsh Top Puppy Two annual competitions held in November of each year. Residing in Wales 64 of the top winning dogs compete in a knockout style competition to declare an overall winner, under two secret judges only revealed on the night! The competitions are followed with an evening of raising money for charities, great food, good wine and dancing until the small hours with friends.
Delegated by The Kennel Club to issue the licences for companion dog shows being held throughout all of Wales, here you will find the latest information for events to visit every weekend. As canine activities continue to flourish around us, on our agility pages, you will find contacts and links to help you learn more. There is also a brief synopsis on Field Trials, and Obedience to hopefully cover the most popular of these activities.
THE WELSH KENNEL CLUB ANNOUNCEMENT
It is with regret that the welsh kennel club announces that its 2020 championship show and the 2021 open shows are both cancelled.
This decision has been made in the interest of the welfare, safety and security of judges, exhibitors, spectators, volunteers and the officers and committee, caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
WKC is also aware of the welsh assembly government guidelines which continue to enforce the lock-down etc in wales. There are many uncertainties which adversely affect the preparation and actual running of the WKC 2020 show.
The doubts in the availability of the RWAS showground, hotel accommodation plus social restrictions, all dictate as to whether the show can proceed and have contributed to the decision to cancel the 2020 show.
2020 judges will be contacted to advise of the cancellation and to offer a future appointment.
The officers and committee of the welsh kennel club send their best wishes to our members, supporters, exhibitors, stewards and all judges at this most difficult time.
We look forward to your support at the welsh kennel club 2021 show to be held between 20th and 22nd August 2021 at the RWAS Showground, Builth Wells.
Joint Secretary, The Welsh Kennel Club.
