West of England Dog of the year.

Due to the lack of shows this year, Val will not be collecting the normal points for West of England Dog of the year.

Any points collected from any shows earlier this year, should be saved, and can be rolled over and added to points collected next year, when hopefully shows will be more back to normal.

Message from the Kennel Club

We are emailing to ask if your club would like to help The Kennel Club with a campaign to promote the importance of buying a pedigree dog. As many of you will have experienced first-hand, during these times the demand for dogs and puppies is unprecedented and The Kennel Club is working hard to try and promote the benefits of owning a pedigree dog and of course the correct ways of buying a dog.

   We are looking for dog owners to submit short video clips of their dog which celebrate and capture their ‘pedigree personality’ and character.  

 From a Greyhound snuggling on the sofa or a Maltese checking out its reflection in a mirror, to a Chihuahua running around in the garden or a Border Collie jumping a hay bale – the main thing The Kennel Club wants to see in the video is your dog’s individual character.  

Email your clips to thekennelclubuk@cowshedsocial.com The deadline to submit your videos is Sunday 18 October at 21:00. To be involved and for more information, visit The Kennel Club’s Facebook page. Kind regards, The Kennel Club

Letter below from Royal Canin.

Dear Secretary
 
We at Royal Canin are reaching out to you as we sponsored your show in the last twelve months.
 
With the ongoing Covid-19 crisis we are trying to help your winners redeem their prizes. Normally this would be done on our stand at the championship shows. As most shows are now cancelled until the end of October, we have altered the system to allow winners to claim their prizes via our Area Business managers.
 
To this end, we would be grateful if you could share the wording below on your club’s social media page or through your club website to try and make sure everyone who has a prize has a good chance of redeeming it in a timely fashion.

We hope this goes some way to showing our support of shows and events and look forward to supporting you in the future.
 
In the meantime please stay safe
