2022 Breed Appreciation Day

We have had to re-schedule the Breed Appreciation Day originally planned for May to a new date of Sunday 13th November 2022.

Unfortunately, our speaker - Gabriela Veiga - was recently taken ill and has been advised by her doctor not to fly. As we are very keen to have this renowned Podengo expert at the event, we have decided to re-schedule it for later in the year on a date that doesn't clash with other shows or canine events.

We understand that this may not be convenient for everyone and have written to all attendees to explain the decision and the next steps. If you have not received this email or if you would like to go on the waiting list for a possible place, please use the contact form below to confirm this with our BAD Organiser.

This change will not affect the NPPA Open Show on the 14th May, which will still go ahead with Vitor Veiga judging.

In the meantime, I'm sure you'll join us in wishing Gabriela a full and speedy recovery.

The Kennel Club requires all breed clubs to hold a Breed Appreciation Day ("BAD") every two years and we will be holding ours the day after our annual show in the same venue. The purpose of the day is to educate anyone interested in the breed, whether they are pet owners, exhibitors, breeders or aspiring judges. It’s a great opportunity to learn about the breed or just refresh your knowledge.  

For judges who have already passed the JFC entry level criteria (and only for these judges) there will be a KC-approved multiple choice exam and mentoring session after the talk.  

Date: moved to Sunday 13th November 2022
Time: Registration from 10:30 am and presentation from 11:00am - 12:15pm.
Speaker: Gabriela Veiga - a highly experienced judge and acknowledged expert on the breed.
Venue: Yelvertoft Village Hall, Lilbourne Road, Yelvertoft, Northants, NN6 6LJ
