Royal opening for Kennel Club building

Last weekend the Kennel Club’s president HRH Prince Michael of Kent officially opened the new Kennel Club Building at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire.

The local dog training club from Leamington Spa provided displays of Heelwork to Music, Ringcraft, Flyball and Obedience. In addition there were Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme Puppy and Bronze displays.

The Valentine’s Day theme had not been lost with heart shaped biscuits for canine visitors and heart shaped chocolates for owners!

Welcoming everyone to the official opening K C Educational Trust chairman Mr Gerald King explained that the trust was set up to provide opportunities to educate the public about the joys and responsibilities of dog ownership.

The trust, he said, had been fortunate to find a permanent location in the heart of England after an historic agreement being the Royal Agricultural Society of England and the Kennel Club.

As well as hosting shows - up to three at time - the venue is already booked to host educational seminars and judges’ development programmes throughout 2009.
