Subject: Proposed Animal Welfare (Licencing of Exhibits) Wales Regs 2020
By now, you may already be aware that the Welsh Government has issued proposals for consultation which would introduce a licencing and inspection system for exhibitors of animals in Wales, and for residents of Wales exhibiting animals outside Wales. Although there is an exemption noted for pet dogs shown once or twice a year at local shows, this does obviously not cover us. As the proposals stand, if implemented, I don't think it is overstating the case to say that it possibly could signal the end of dog showing in Wales.The KC website which provides a link to the Welsh Government site where the proposals are laid out? The KC has also drawn up a suggested response for exhibitors to send to the Welsh Government. Then would you consider with your committees any ideas for achieving the loudest possible objections to what is proposed. The KC is taking the line that all pet dogs at all dog shows should be exempt.

The ESA committee felt that this was a fitting tribute to Gordon who not only gave much of his time to the Breed and Association, but the Bournehouse name is well-known throughout the dog world both here and abroad.
