K9 NEWS in partnership with ROYAL CANIN®


 13th May 2020

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus Lockdown situation and unlikely recommencement of dog shows in the next few months K9 News and Royal Canin have taken the decision to cancel the 2020 Dog of the Year Competition

With more than half of the scheduled dog shows for the year now cancelled, it was felt this was the only decision to make. All results for 2020 recorded to date for the competition are considered null and void and no overall or within breeds Dog of the Year 2020 will be declared.

We thank you all for your interest and support in this competition that had a successfully completed its first year.

We will see a return to dog show in the not too distant future and look forward to 2021 and running Dog of the Year

In the meantime we trust you and your dogs are all well and remain safe.
