BASC is delighted to continue its long-held custom of hosting the gamekeepers’ classes at Crufts 2020.
The classes, which are open to gamekeepers, owners of working gundogs, gundog teams and young handlers, will be held on Gundog Day, Friday 6th March 2020, at the NEC in Birmingham. Entries for applications will close on 6th January.
The gamekeepers’ classes are deeply rooted in the history of Crufts and BASC is proud to continue this strong tradition.
The top individual dogs owned by gamekeepers will go head-to-head in this world-famous competition in the main arena for the ‘Best in Gamekeeping Class’ title – and the chance to win the Northesk Memorial Trophy.
Kate Dymock, BASC gundog officer, said: “I would encourage anyone with a working gundog to enter the BASC gamekeepers’ classes. The event is a wonderful occasion and an incredible chance to showcase your dogs.
“Crufts is the biggest dog show in the world and BASC’s rings at Crufts allow the promotion of working gundogs to the tens of thousands of visitors. It is an opportunity to celebrate the history of these gundogs whilst ensuring their future.
Entries for all the BASC Gamekeeping Classes must be accompanied by a signed declaration which is included in the entry form.
