The Kennel Club Friends For Life competition is an inspiring celebration of man's best friend. 
The competition celebrates heart-warming stories of friendship in adversity, and how humans and dogs transform and enrich each other’s lives. 

The competition celebrates dogs that have truly earned the title of man’s best friend, through bravery, support or companionship. This might include assistance dogs, service dogs or everyday companions who have helped their owners in remarkable ways.

The competition entirely supports and reflects the ethos and objectives of The Kennel Club and it is important therefore that the reputation, credibility and prestige of the competition is protected.
