Membership is open to all

For your dog to become eligible for the EMDA Top Dog/Bitch/Puppy/Crufts Awards, you must be a member of the EMDA for a minimum of 6 months with a dog over 12 months old and a minimum of 3 months for a dog under 12 months old.

At each Championship show entry, you will be able to gain 'points' towards these awards. Please find how you gain points here. (Link Coming Soon...)

At the end of the year, there is a Top Dog, Top Bitch and Top Puppy for every breed, this is often then published in the Dog Show Paper 'Our Dogs'. If your dog is Reserve Top Dog for example but the Top Dog of the year is not a member of the EMDA, the award will then go to your dog as the award is only eligible for members.

You will be able to keep the award for up to 12 months where it should be returned to a member of the committee in the condition it was received. Diposits will be take.

Applications should be sent to the Secretary together with the remittance, where they will be put before the committee for approval.

Joing : £15.00

Single : £10.00

Junior : £1.50
