Closing Dates

Working Events

Visitors and spectators are very welcome at our Working Tests and it is a great opportunity to meet Newfoundlands and their owners and find out more about the breed. However, before travelling to a test we recommend that you check that the event is still taking place as it is sometimes necessary to cancel or modify test arrangements, usually as a result of serious adverse weather conditions.

KC Notice Postal Entries

Proof of posting

The Kennel Club would like to remind exhibitors of its proof of posting policy. Whilst it is understood that, on occasion, entries for shows do get lost in the post, it is disheartening that it appears that a small number of unsportsmanlike exhibitors may be exploiting the Proof of Posting system by various means.

In order to track persistent offenders, and to put a stop to this unsportsmanlike behaviour, a Proof of Posting database is in use which lists everyone who makes an entry on the day of a show. The database is updated on receipt of show reports and lists all those exhibitors reported as having entered on the day of the show.

All exhibitors will be asked to provide their proof of posting and those who repeatedly enter on the day will be required to send all future entries by Registered Post or to enter online. If further entries on the day are made, the only proof of posting that will be accepted is the show society’s confirmation of receipt or online receipt. Failure to provide such proof could result in the disqualification of awards, as referred to in Regulations F(1)9, G23.c, H10.d, L11.c and S9.d.
