The Yearling Stakes

Buddies is the proud sponsor of the Yearling Stakes. An annual competition that searches for the best dogs between 12 and 24 months old from across the UK. The Buddies Yearling Stakes qualifiers are held at shows throughout the UK each year where a dog and a bitch qualifier from each of the KC recognised groups will secure a place at the Final.

The groups are: Gundog, Hound, Pastoral, Terrier, Toy, Working and Utility. Any dog or bitch aged under 2 years old at the time of competing can enter the Buddies Yearling Stakes class at one of the above shows. While many of the entry deadlines have passed, there is still chance to enter at the National Gundog show and the British Utility Breeds show.

More information can be found here. Winners from each Yearling Stakes qualifier will go head to head to be crowned Buddies yearling of the Year at a grand final each February. Check out the highlights from last year’s Grand Final here.
