You may have all noticed that the Kennel Club has made a new ruling with immediate
effect that all exhibits at shows must be identified on their benches or cages. Benching
numbers will remain on the benches and identification on cages and soft crates should
be supplied by the exhibitor. A KC spokesman said
“Each exhibitor is responsible for putting identification on their own crate or cage,
and should note that the original exhibit/bench number card, as provided by the show
society, must not be used for this purpose,” "At open shows or unbenched shows where
a bench number may not be known in advance or is not required, any form of exhibit/owner
identification is acceptable. The purpose of this requirement is for show organisers
to be able to identify a dog who may be in distress and therefore have some route
to contact the dog’s owner via Tannoy messages etc."
One question asked of the KC was "why do exhibitors need to have a number on the
crate? Why not their name and address and mobile number ?"
The KC reply was "It is preferable, for simplicity, for the exhibitor’s version of
the bench/exhibit number to be used as the primary form of identification. However,
if exhibitors choose to provide alternative identification which still enables the
show management to trace the dog’s owner that is acceptable.
Have a great day at Crufts and let me know if you have any news.
