In our lifetime dog folk have always had a choice of two newspapers containing news on all aspects of the canine world.  Weekly breed notes are an important feature, giving up to date information on your chosen breed and, over time, these combine to build a vital historical record.  However, on 13 June 2017 one of the papers Dog World, which first appeared on 21 February 1902 under the title of Illustrated Kennel News,  went into administration. 

As one door closes, another opens.  For the time being, to continue the tradition of providing news of our breeds, here you will be able to read weekly notes.
