Vulnerable British and Irish Breeds Press release
Following the popularity of the Vulnerable British and Irish Breeds Competition in 2019, the Kennel Club has announced that it will take place again this year with a new format, culminating in a grand final at Crufts 2021.

In a move designed to broaden the scope of the competition and offer more opportunities to qualify, BOB winners from the Scottish Kennel Club (May), Welsh Kennel Club and Belfast championship shows will now be eligible to compete in the final, along with BOB winners from the usual selected group championship shows.

Also in this press release the Kennel Club has an article about 'Puppies for sale: finding the right dog' and is concerned with protecting those breeds of dog which are of British origin and are considered to be vulnerable i.e. those whose numbers are declining and whose status within the world of dogs has diminished over a number of years.
