Brittanys have had Championship status since 1997 i.e. the Breed has Kennel Club Challenge Certificates awarded at Championship Shows in the UK.
In 1997 there were 5 sets of Challenge Certificates and for 1998 seven sets were on offer. It has now risen to sixteen sets, and it is arguably too great a transition, too quickly. It is very easy to qualify for Crufts, and there are now a great many Show Champions.
The Kennel Club has details of all Canine Societies holding shows and will be glad to help if you need a list of those in your area. They also have details of Ring-craft Training classes – an essential if you want to train yourself and your dog!
