YKC dog walk challenge

New Year fresh start? Then take on the YKC Dog Walk Challenge 2022. We are asking all Young Kennel Club members to take part in our winter dog walking challenge. It may be cold outside but it is important to get outside with your four-legged friend and enjoy the fresh air. So it is time to get up and moving, don’t let the winter weather get in your way!

6 -13 years we want you to walk five miles and 14 – 24 years we want you to walk 10 miles between 22 January – 19 February.

You can take lots of short walks with your dog/s over the duration. Once completed we will send you a YKC Walking Challenge certificate and enter you into a draw to win a free place at YKC camp 2022 or a Fitbit and a £100 Argos voucher!
