A reminder from the Kennel Club

Exhibitors and show societies are reminded that there is an additional qualification available for breed classes at Crufts 2014 where Challenge Certificates are offered. The additional qualification, which was introduced two years ago, specifies that those dogs which win Best of Breed and Best Puppy in Breed at General and Group Championship shows in non CC classes for breeds normally allocated CCs will qualify. This is on the proviso that there are more than three breed classes scheduled for the breed and that the show falls between 7 January 2013 and 20 January 2014. For Stud Book Band E breeds, there is a requirement that more than five classes are scheduled.
