If you have any comments or queries please only email the Secretary putting BAD/MCE as the subject and send to; secretarywcow@gmail.com.

The Whippet Club Of Wales have applied to the Kennel Club to hold a BAD/MCE day on 14th September 2019 at Little Mill Village Hall near Pontypool and this will take place in the morning, actual times to be confirmed.
It is also proposed to hold a Hands On assessment in the afteroon.

The complete criteria and application form will be published here very shortly.

Timings are yet to be totally confirmed but the BAD & MCE will take place in the morning with Hands On in the afternoon.

Costs for the sessions have been agreed at;

£15 for those attending just one session but lunch not included
£25 for those attending two sessions including buffet lunch
£30 for those attending three sessions including buffet lunch

An application form for one or all of the sessions will be available for download here once the details are totally confirmed. On acceptance to any of the above an Extended Illustrated Breed Standard will be emailed, if possible, to all those attending plus any relevant paperwork to help with your learning & understanding of the Breed prior to the day. It is also suggested that for the MCE & Hands On that you utilise the learning aids for the Whippet on the KC Academy.

Although on 7th June 2019 the Kennel Club announced the suspension of the JCF awaiting an independent body review they also state the following;

Many breed clubs have committed to activities including the holding of Breed Appreciation Days, providing mentoring opportunities and carrying out observations whilst judging. The Board recognises that these activities provide opportunities to gain further knowledge and understanding that will be of value to judges irrespective of the mechanisms by which approval to award Challenge Certificates etc. is ultimately attained. The advice to breed clubs is therefore that they continue with these activities should they be so minded.
