    Discover Dogs

    Hilary and Maurice Dean attended Discover Dogs at ExCel London in October to represent the bloodhound breed. They took along their two hounds and had a great weekend. Between all the attention the hounds received they were able to snatch a few pictures to give us a flavour of the show.

    Thank you for representing the breed

    Reminder issued across all canine disciplines

    The Kennel Club would like to issue a reminder to competitors about the importance of filling out entry forms accurately when entering their dogs for any of the competitive events which fall under the governance of the Kennel Club.
    Over the past year, the Kennel Club has seen an increase in the number of awards which have had to be disqualified through competitors providing incorrect information. Situations such as these are not only disappointing for competitors, but also for judges and organising societies, and are completely avoidable if competitors take extra care and time when filling out entry forms.
    It is especially important that competitors enter their dog only in the category or class for which it is eligible. They should always read the event schedule very carefully and, if in any doubt at all, contact either the event organiser or the Kennel Club for guidance.
    Competitors can double-check their own dogs’ details, including dates of birth and parentage, by logging on to the Kennel Club’s online MyKC facility at
    Now that the Kennel Club is working more closely with catalogue printers, it is more important than ever that the information on entry forms is accurate. If there are any discrepancies between a competitor’s address on the Kennel Club database and that listed in an event catalogue, for example, this could result in a delay in sending out award certificates.
    Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club Secretary, said: “In this fast-moving digital age, we hope that the way awards are processed at the Kennel Club will become more streamlined in the foreseeable future.  But we need competitors to do their bit and help in this process. With fewer errors in catalogues, we hope to get to the stage where award certificates are sent out within a matter of days after an event, but this will not be possible where competitors provide incorrect information. A simple check of information at the time of filling out the entry form, which takes only minutes, can save bitter disappointment further down the track.”
    Any competitor who needs to update their details with the Kennel Club, such as a change of name or address, can do so by downloading the ‘change of personal details form’ on the Kennel Club website at
