City of Birmingham 2021 Cancelled
Statement:

The Management Committee of The City of Birmingham Canine Association have constantly monitored the situation regarding the Coronavirus pandemic and the effect it may have on staging a safe General Championship Dog Show in accordance with all current Government restrictions, regulations and advice.
The safety of exhibitors, officials and volunteers is paramount as also is the future viability of The Association.
The situation regarding gatherings in the numbers normally expected at a General Championship Dog Show is impossible for anyone, including Government Public Health advisors, to predict at this stage.
Following meetings with Stoneleigh Events, the venue for our show, we are advised that the buildings that we traditionally hold our show are currently being used by The National Health Service as a Vaccination Centre along with other Covid related activities. This situation is unlikely to change during the remainder of 2021.
We have therefore made the regrettable decision to cancel our 2021 General Championship Show.
This decision has been reached after exhaustive discussion and consultation but we have been unable to find any feasible alternative which would ensure the safety of everybody involved or attending our show.
Mr David J Bell


Windsor 2021 Cancelled
Statement:

It is with profound regret that the Officers and Committee of Windsor have, with great reluctance, found it necessary to cancel our show this year.
As it is generally known, Home Park is not available to us this year, however with the invaluable assistance of the Royal Windsor Horse Show we continued to make plans for our show to be held on an alternative site in the Windsor area.   
Unfortunately, the insurmountable problem we finally faced was in providing all the infrastructure necessary to run a fully functioning show in a safe, secure and viable manner.
We are fully aware of the disappointment this will cause to those who are our loyal supporters and exhibitors and for those who had perhaps decided that, this year, Windsor would be their introduction to the dog show world, but our overwhelming concern has to be to run the show in an enjoyable way with the comfort and safety of both exhibitors and their dogs as our main priority.
We will of course be contacting all our judges, stewards, trade stands and support workers with this disappointing news.
After the necessary long period between our shows we hope to give everyone our usual warm welcome to a vibrant and traditional Windsor Show in 2022.

Secretary


Crufts 2021 Cancelled
Statement:

It is with deep regret that The Kennel Club has decided to cancel Crufts 2021, which was due to take place from 15 – 18 July. This is owing to ongoing uncertainty due to the Covid-19 pandemic and in consideration for the health and safety of all its volunteers, judges, exhibitors, sponsors, trade stand holders, visitors and staff. 
For many months, ongoing discussions have been taking place with the NEC and other parties in trying to find a way forward in making it possible to run this year’s show in a Covid-secure way.
The opening up of events in general, especially those that take place inside is still unclear and The Kennel Club’s priority must be the health and safety of all those mentioned above. The Kennel Club also recognised that clarity was required now to mitigate any commitments that all our potential participants may undertake.  
Over the past few weeks, The Kennel Club commissioned a survey asking for opinions from those in the canine world on returning to events and although it has been very reassuring to see that 60% would like to get back to their dog activities as soon as it is safe to do so, it was noted that 63% did not feel comfortable or were unsure about attending an inside event in the near future. 
Tom Mather, Crufts Chairman, said: “We are very disappointed that we have had to cancel Crufts for the first time since 1954, in what would have been its 130th anniversary year, and it is a decision we have not taken lightly.  
“We have tried desperately hard to make this year’s show happen, including the decision we took last November to postpone the event to July. However, of course this was before we were hit by the devastating second wave of the pandemic.
“When this decision was taken, we were optimistic that the situation would be such that the show could be held. However we appreciated that there was a possibility that holding the show in the summer under certain restrictions could also, in some respects, do the show a disservice. We were disappointed that, even though we carried over the qualification from 2020, we would still be limited on our entry numbers and wouldn’t be able to welcome as many dogs back as we would have liked.  
“It would also be regrettable that there was a strong possibility that many of the popular events and features of the show, such as obedience, the Good Citizen Dog Scheme, Young Kennel Club ring and Discover Dogs, would not have been able to be included under the restrictions which could be imposed. 
“Finally, in light of recent announcements and the emergence of a third wave of coronavirus in Europe, it was looking extremely unlikely that both our overseas judges and exhibitors would be able to attend.”
Further discussions will be taking place regarding the impact of the cancellation of Crufts over the next couple of months, such as the qualification criteria for Crufts 2022 for all disciplines, including the Young Kennel Club. 
The Kennel Club appreciates that judges from this year’s show will be very disappointed and the committee will be looking at the options to invite them to judge at a future Crufts and will be making further announcements in due course.  
The Kennel Club would like to take this opportunity to thank the shows who were willing to partner with Crufts due to the clash of dates when Crufts was moved to July and also all the other shows and canine events that had been affected by the date change. We would also like to thank the NEC, its sponsors and Channel 4, for the understanding that everyone has shown. It is very much appreciated. 
Meanwhile, The Kennel Club will continue to provide any assistance it can with shows and events this year and to try and ensure canine activities get up and running in the safest possible way. We look forward to welcoming everyone back to Crufts next year in its full glory from 10 - 13 March 2022. 
Further Crufts updates will be posted at www.crufts.org.uk.


United Kingdom Toydog Society Cancelled
Statement:

It is with real regret that the United Kingdom Toydog Society have taken the decision to cancel the show scheduled for September 29th, 2021.
There is still a great deal of uncertainty regarding the current pandemic with talk of a third wave across Europe. We cancelled last year’s show at very short notice and all exhibitors and traders were given a complete refund. The decision to cancel this year show has not been taken lightly but the committee took the view that it would be prudent to do so before the Society incurred any further expenditure. 
When we agreed a date with the Kennel Club for the rescheduled show, we opted for a weekday so that we would not encroach upon any other show date. Neither Birmingham National, Scottish Kennel Club or Border Union had rescheduled at that stage. However, the calendar is now extremely full, particularly in September and October and a Group Championship with a greatly reduced entry is not financially viable. 
2022 is the 50th Anniversary of the Society’s first Championship Show and we all look forward to welcoming you to that event.
Tom Mather


Three Counties Show Cancelled
Statement:

Due to the differing and changing Covid 19 restrictions throughout the United Kingdom, Three Counties is sadly unable to host the Championship Dog Show (10-13th June) this year. We would like to thank our exhibitors, judges  stewards, helpers and team for their support, and look forward to seeing you all next year.

SCOTTISH KENNEL CLUB MAY CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW
The Officers and Committee of the Scottish Kennel Club wish to confirm that, in line with the current Scottish and UK Government guidelines, our Championship Show, due to be held 21st – 23rd May 2021, cannot go ahead as planned. As always, the health and safety of our exhibitors, judges, staff and volunteers is our main priority. 
 
We are currently discussing with both the Kennel Club and the Royal Highland Centre the possibility of rescheduling this show to a later date in the year. Once we have considered all options available to us, a further update will be shared on both our Facebook page and SKC website.
We will now proceed in contacting the Judges, Contractors/Suppliers and Secretaries of Clubs/Societies direct to inform them of this decision and thank everyone for your patience and understanding meantime.
 
We would like to thank all our exhibitors for their continued support during this difficult time and look forward to seeing you in the future.

Bath Canine Society - Statement
With increasing COVID-19 infection rates, Bath Canine Society do not feel it feasible to hold our 2021 show on the usual May date and the Kennel Club has approved new dates as follows:
·        Saturday 31 July – Gundogs
·        Sunday 1 August – Terriers/Toys
·        Monday 2 August – Hounds/Utility
·        Tuesday 3 August – Working/Pastoral

The amended dates and group rotations have been chosen to minimise clashes with breed club championship shows and National Gundog Association which takes place on 1 August. 

Owning our own showground affords us some flexibility and are optimistic that a move to these new dates will give us a better chance of staging the show. 

We will be contacting those breed club championship shows that clash with the new dates and offering them the opportunity to join us. All existing partnership shows will also be contacted and our contracted judges in the coming days. 

We ask that you bear with us while we make new arrangements and hope to see you all soon.

Lee Cox
Secretary, Bath Canine Society
