The KCAI Career Zone: Working With Dogs

The KCAI Career Zone is the place where anyone involved in working with dogs, or looking for a career in dogs, can benefit from free advice, education and resources. The Career Zone, in partnership with Purina PRO PLAN, is situated in Hall 5.

A key feature of the Career Zone is a lecture theatre which will offer hour-long lectures, delivered by industry luminaries and covering an extensive range of subjects that everybody who works with dogs can benefit from.

There is also the opportunity to attend as a general visitor to the Career Zone, where you can speak to lecturers and industry leaders on a one-to-one basis through the KCAI Expert Panel, as well as utilising resources in the KCAI Lounge.

If you could not register for a seminar place you can still get one-to-one careers advice from our industry professionals at the KCAI Expert Panel and in the KCAI Lounge.  Those involved or looking to work in the veterinary industry can also head to the new Vet Engagement Area at the Career Zone, hosted by the British Veterinary Nursing Association.

The Career Zone is open for all four days of the show to all canine professionals and those looking to work with dogs - we hope to see you there!

The lecture schedule for Crufts 2015 will be available in January 2015.
