Kennel Club Adult Membership

Senior YKC members (18 years and over) can apply for a reduced membership entrance fee of £50, down from £300, and an annual subscription of £100 for the first two years, after which the standard annual subscription fee of £160, or £150 by direct debit, will apply.

Rewarding loyal members

Young Kennel Club members pay lower fees to become an associate Kennel Club member! If you have been a senior YKC member for five years or more, you can apply to become a KC member without requiring a proposer or a seconder. Members are provided with social facilities at the Kennel Club's head office in Mayfair, where a club room and restaurant are available for members, and rooms may be booked for meetings by Breed Clubs and Canine Societies.

If you would like to know how long you have been a Young Kennel Club member for, email us and we'll let you know.

"We want to encourage more young people to have their say on the future shape of the dog world, and hope that easing the passage from YKC membership to KC membership will enable more young people to do this.”

How to apply for memberships
