Heelwork to Music is Obedience training with a twist! Your dog has to show his understanding and knowledge of training commands - but the great part is that your dog can show off his obedience skills within a dance routine with music, which has been created by you.
There are two types of HTM class, Freestyle and Heelwork and most shows stage official classes in both categories. Take a look at the Young Kennel Club HTM rules before taking part in any competitions, so you are ready to take part.
Scroll down to the bottom of the page to view the rules for YKC competitions or click on the above button.
All you will need to compete is a Kennel Club Heelwork to Music Record book (available here) to collect points to try and qualify for the Young Kennel Club Heelwork to Music Finals at Crufts. Send your book in by 1st December each year, along with the application form below, and if you have enough points - you will be invited to compete at Crufts!
The YKC accepts wins from official classes at HTM Kennel Club Licensed Shows. So enter the show and don't forget to take your record book with you!
COVID-19 has affected all of the YKC's qualifiers in 2020 (for Crufts 2021). We dont know when we'll be able to have qualifiers running again, so until we know more, we have removed the qualification documents and qualifier dates from our site.
Please stay safe during this time
