About YCA

York Canine Association (YCA) is one of the oldest canine associations in the UK.

The club offers Ringcraft Training for both experienced handlers who already show their dogs and also welcomes those who are new to showing and would like to learn. In addition we hold monthly Match Nights as well as a Limit Show and Open Show annually.

YCA is a friendly and professional club with extensive experience in the areas of show judging, handling and breeding. We welcome all age groups and aim to make our training and match nights a fun experience for everyone.

Good evening everybody, I hope you are all well.I know people are beginning to wonder when training will re-commence, so to avoid any confusion, this is where we are up to. The Shipton-by-Beningbrough hall committee held a meeting to discuss when they thought it would be safe to open the hall. They have decided to re-assess the situation at the national logistics date of 21-06-21. Understandably, they are concerned that they only put the hall back into use when there is minimal risk of C19 without too many restrictions on the groups using it. This does bring into question the use of the adjoining field - there would be no access to toilet facilities and as it is open to general public use, our insurance cover would be null and void at this time.This latter is a point that members need to think about if they are considering training activities with a group of friend's, as this cannot be done under the auspices of YCA and will have no valid insurance.Some venues are understandably very very reluctant to open up their facilities until the pandemic is well and truly under control. This has affected many club meetings and their relevant trainings.As soon as we have any more news, we will let you all know as we are looking forward to seeing everyone again, especially all these new puppies that have yet to make a debut. Until then, as always, stay safe and enjoy your furry friends.Jean (Chairman and Acting Secretary) ... See MoreSee Less

Some useful information for members.As we have already seen our first cases of adder bites this year, we ask you to share this amongst your dog-owning friends. 🐍The only venomous snake found in the wild in the UK is the adder, and we have thriving populations of them at various spots in the York area. As the weather begins to change and we see warmer days, we also start to get more reports of adders warming themselves in the sun. Although adders prefer to avoid people and dogs, they will bite if threatened. Most often, this is by an unsuspecting dog who has been a bit too inquisitive. If you spot an adder on your walk, admire them from a distance, and be sure to keep your dog well away. If your pooch is unfortunate enough to get bitten by one, here's a guide of what to do. 🐍 ...
