The Club will support shows for the correct type of Border Terrier in particular to support classes for terriers holding a working certificate signed by the Master of a recognised pack of Foxhounds hunting Foxes and registered in the Club Register of such working certificate holders. This register to be kept by an appointed committee member."
Applications received by the Club for a Working Certificate are not approved until they have been thoroughly checked and the signature thereon authenticated as being that of the Master and Terrier Man of a pack of Foxhounds recognised by Master of the Foxhounds Association, with which the dog has worked that Season.
This club’s certificates are restricted to terriers worked with packs in England and Wales,
i.e. within the jurisdiction of the Hunting Act 2004 (England and Wales). Please make sure you are familiar with the legal requirements of this act.
Dogs who hold a Working Certificate issued by the Club are eligible to enter the working classes
