Kennel Club preps for phased return of events

The trade association is seeking the opinions of competitors, judges and event organisers over the eventual phased return of licenced events

Kennel Club has launched an online survey to poll the views of pet competition participants, judges and organisers over the eventual phased return of licenced events.

The specific questions centre around how soon after the easing of lockdown restrictions would the respondents wish to return to licensed events.

Respondents to the survey will also be asked what initiatives or methods of communication will be useful going forward in explaining how Kennel Club licenced events will be carried out after lockdown.

Addressing potential respondents, Kathryn Mansfield, Kennel Club’s secretary, said: “With the Covid-19 vaccine rollout now well underway and the prospect of the relaxation of lockdown measures on the horizon, The Kennel Club would like to hear as many views as possible on getting events up and running and back to pre-pandemic levels, following a year which we know has been full of frustration for everyone who normally enjoys participating in Kennel Club licensed events.

“We’d love to hear any ideas you have so that we can all work together to restore confidence and participation in canine events. Your views are more important than ever during this very challenging period for our shows and trials, so please have your say.”

The survey is available on the Kennel Club website, with the closing date for responding being the 19 March 2021.
