The Junior Warrant Competition is an annual competition where Junior Warrant winners compete for the coveted title ‘Junior Warrant Winner of the Year’ award, proudly sponsored by Omega 3 Aid for Dogs.
Each year, a series of qualifying heats are held by General Canine Societies around the country scheduling Open Shows during August and September.
At each heat, five dogs and a reserve are selected by the judge and 64 dogs from the heats are then invited to the Semi Finals at Discover Dogs. Ten finalists are then selected to then compete at the Final which is held at Crufts.
The overall winner is presented with an award and trophy at Crufts and the story will feature exclusively in the flagship publication of the Kennel Club, the Kennel Gazette.
Eligibility to compete in the qualifying heats is for all dogs that have qualified for a Junior Warrant within a set period. This is advertised in the Kennel Gazette usually around May, along with information about where the heats for that year are being held.
