The Kennel Club in the UK is affected like everyone else in the world by the Coronavirus and its implications. A large number of Kennel Club staff have been furloughed and the remainder are working from home.
The Kennel Club has advised its Members that, because of the Coronavirus outbreak and the restrictions on unnecessary travel and personal contact introduced by the Government, its AGM, originally due to be held on May 12th, has been postponed (technically adjourned) until Tuesday June 30th at 11.30 a.m.

Lucy’s Law is here! LUCY’S LAW will finally become law on Monday 6 April. On that day the UK government will officially ban commercial thirdparty puppy sales with the ground-breaking legislation known as Lucy’s Law.

In the same way that the UK dog show scene has been hit for six, the international showing community have been similarly affected. The biggest event to fall by the wayside is the World Dog Show in Madrid. In fact this has been postponed until July due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.
