Kennel Club
 

 

The Kennel Club, the United Kingdom's official kennel club, recognizes 213 dog breeds in the Hound, Working, Gundog, Terrier, Utility, Pastoral and Toy Groups. The Kennel Club licenses more than 4,500 dog shows and events each year throughout the United Kingdom and also has presented the annual Crufts dog show, one of the largest dog shows in the world, since 1928. Founded in 1873 to regulate the conduct of dog shows and trials, the Kennel Club is the oldest recognized kennel club in the world and is headquartered in London. Unlike the United States’ American Kennel Club, the Kennel Club registers mixed dog breeds as well as purebred dogs. Like the AKC, the Kennel Club is not a part of FCI (Fédération Cynologique Internationale). Also like the AKC, the Kennel Club lobbies the government on dog-related legislation in the UK, donates funds toward canine health research and promotes responsible dog ownership.
