Registered & Listed Clubs

Listed and Registered Club Status Background

The concept of a Listed Status Club was originally considered by the UK Kennel Club for the discipline of Rally but following its successful implementation, it was considered that the format would also be of benefit to other disciplines. Listed Status allows those who do not want to undergo the full requirements of running a Registered club/society to run UK Kennel Club licensed shows. It is now available for those who wish to run Agility, Canicross, Heelwork to Music, Obedience, and Rally competitions or training.Previously, many unaffiliated clubs and groups in the UK ‘borrowed’ licences from registered clubs to run shows, however, there was little recourse for competitors should something happen. In general, the UK

Kennel Club would prefer a show to be licensed than not, this is also the stance of The Kennel Club of Jersey (KCJ). This safeguards and provides support to all those involved in a show, whether they are competing, organising, or judging.  Also, the KCJ wishes to encourage all canine clubs to be associated with the KCJ whilst recognising that not all clubs wish to have a formal committee structure or require formal accounts to be prepared. These clubs must agree to abide by the requirements listed on this document.

What is Listed Status?

Listed Status is a type of registration for groups or individuals, that enables them to hold training and licensed shows/competitions without the requirements that a fully registered club must adhere to.
