About us

Welcome to the latest incarnation of the Rallynews website - your FREE link to all the schedules, entry forms, and results for Kennel Club Rally competitions - and much more besides! You will find lots of useful information, links and downloads. We have tried to keep the website as ‘simple’ as possible, so hopefully very clear. It is maintained as a spare time project, free of charge, and there are no charges whatsoever. Oh, let me add - we do not use ‘cookies’.

This website was created and is maintained by Ian Watt (aka Rally-o.com) for Rallynews and in support of Julie Barrett (aka Rally Dogs) and Kennel Club Rally. All costs are met by Rally-O Ltd and/or Ian himself. 

Photographs and general content on this website are copyright free - you are welcome to download and copy as you wish BUT if you are publishing in any format, please acknowledge the source or  photographer. Anything originated by The Kennel Club is shown here by their expressed permission under their copyright.
