In the Spring of 2006, the Kennel Club General Committee approved a plan to introduce an Affiliate scheme to encourage greater involvement with the Club and the dog scene, by all those who are both new to or are already associated with dogs.
The scheme has been launched this week, and the Kennel Club is inviting everyone connected to the world of dogs to take the opportunity to become more involved with their sport and hobby and benefit from the products and services that affiliation has to offer.
For an annual subscription of just £20.00, affiliates will receive the following benefits:
Monthly copy of the Kennel Gazette
lThe opportunity to attend a Kennel Club open day to meet the staff, including a tour of the Clarges Street office
Discounted tickets to Crufts and Discover Dogs
A 10% discount card for purchase of all Kennel Club publications direct from the show stand and the Publications Department
The opportunity to purchase a specially designed affiliate tie and scarf
Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club Secretary, said, ‘We hope that the Affiliate scheme will increase awareness of the work of the Kennel Club enabling all those with an interest in dogs to feel that they can contribute to all that the KC does to make a difference for dogs. It really is a universal scheme, open to all, and we hope it will attract dog breeders, judges, owners, club secretaries and all those with an interest in dogs.’
