Pedigree Stakes classes change

At its meeting on 31st May 2005, the General Committee of the Kennel Club agreed to a request enabling Pedigree Masterfoods to add the following wording to the definition of the above stakes classes:

"Pedigree Stakes competitions are open for entry to all exhibitors and handlers, excluding Mars employees and their families and those exhibitors and handlers who have chosen to have an exclusive feeding or advertising arrangement with any other pet food manufacturer."

In making this decision, the General Committee directed that Pedigree Masterfoods must obtain the agreement of each show society scheduling these classes and that the earliest occasion this alteration may take effect would be at the Three Counties Agricultural Society show to be held on 13th-16th June 2005.

The issue of sponsorship and its effects on Kennel Club licensed events is currently under review.
