The Incident Book at Shows

Monday, August 1, 2016 - Posted by KC Press Release, in Shows and Events

The Kennel Club would like to remind clubs and societies of the importance of the proper reporting of any incidents occurring at shows, using the incident book. Clear reports, containing all relevant details, allow incidents to be investigated more easily and as a result any issues may be resolved more quickly, which is beneficial to all concerned.

The Kennel Club website has been updated to explain the responsibilities of the show management when it comes to reporting incidents, as well as offering advice on how to fill out the incident book correctly. Competitors are reminded that they should report an incident occurring at a show, and detailed guidance on how to do so is provided on the website. Please visit www.thekennelclub.org.uk/activities/incidents-at-shows/

Any incidents of unsatisfactory judging procedure may be reported via the incident book at a show. The Kennel Club will note any such reports, and will investigate should consistent reports be received regarding any one judge.
