For the file

The Glen of Imaal Terrier entry of 31 for Crufts has been known for a few weeks and it is nice to know that a fair few of these are overseas entries, another we weren’t aware of checked in yesterday. For anybody coming to Crufts (or exhibiting in the UK) the Kennel Club have released a new EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY regulation. As it is written the exhibitor must always have the number of the dog on any crate/cage that it is in even if this crate is on the bench with its official number straight behind it. Did they mean this? It’s the KC so who knows but just make sure you have a spare piece of card with you for Crufts if your dog is crated.

The Kennel Club have already produced a few answers to the questions being asked

  1. I can understand why the dogs’ numbers need to be on any crate when placed away from their benches but why when they are on the bench?
    For anyone worried how to comply you can get stud card holders that can easily & safely fit onto wire crates (using cable ties) as luggage labels would get chewed.

    I am surprised they haven’t gone the extra step and required all vehicles in show car parks to display the exhibits’ number.
