Kennel Club question time goes north

As part of the Kennel Club’s ongoing commitment to encourage open communication between it and the dog activities and enthusiasts that it represents, the Kennel Club is holding the last of its Question Times for 2006 at the Tickled Trout Hotel in Preston, Lancashire, on Wednesday, 22 November from 6.30pm onwards.

This is a great opportunity for people to find out what the Kennel Club is all about and provides a forum for visitors to air their views and questions to a panel of senior representatives from the Kennel Club.

The panel coming to Preston will consist of Ronnie Irving, Chairman, Bill Hardaway, Vice Chairman, Rosemary Smart, Chief Executive, Caroline Kisko, Secretary and Kathryn Symns, Canine Activities Executive.

Rosemary Smart, Chief Executive of the Kennel Club said: “Kennel Club Question Times offer a wonderful opportunity for us to discuss issues of interest and concern and to meet hundreds of dog owners throughout the UK. They help us demonstrate the club’s commitment to dogs, their health and welfare and our objective of developing and improving canine activities for all.”

A number of Question Times have been held up and down the country following an idea suggested at the Canine Events Conference and through listening to comments and suggestions from exhibitors, competitors and others involved in showing and working their dogs.

More Questions raised are numerous and varied, from legislation to Crufts, the value of Reserve Challenge Certificates, issues affecting dogs in society, KC procedures, dogs in cars, judging critiques and Obedience regulations and answers are given by the Panel. In a number of instances, ideas have been taken back by the Panel and raised with the relevant Kennel Club Committee.

Attendance at the Kennel Club Question Time in Preston is free. For further information and to reserve a place please contact Tracey Harris, Events Coordinator on 020 7518 1012 or email tharris@the-kennel-club.org.uk.
