Q: I am a Gamekeeeper and I intend to enter my dog into the Gamekeeper Classes. Can I also enter the same dog into the Working Gundog Classes?
A: Yes. However, it is important to know the times of each of the classes to which you have entered and be aware of any potential clashes.
Q. As I work my dog it is legally docked can I still enter it into a class?
A. If your dog was docked either in the UK or in a foreign country before 6 April 2007 then it may enter Crufts. If your dog was docked either in the UK or in a foreign country on or after 6 April 2007 it will not, under the law, be permitted to be shown at Crufts (where public are admitted on a payment of a fee).
Q. I am new to showing dogs and I am hoping to enter the Gamekeeper classes, does my dog need to qualify into a breed class first?
A. No, dogs entered in Gamekeeper classes only do not have to qualify for entry into a breed class.
Q. Who will be judging the classes in 2019?
A. Different judges are selected each year and have a wealth of both show and working gundog experience. More information on the judges for 2019 can be found here.
