Crufts, presided over by Kennel Club CEO Rosemary Smart is still going. While she has been CEO she has failed to take appropriate action following the below issues and crises which the Kennel Club has faced:

1. The RSPCA condemned Crufts as being Cruel to the dogs taking part - Rosemary ignored these reports and Crufts is still going

2. The BBC refused to show Crufts again unless the Kennel Club put in place health checks for the dogs taking part. Rosemary refused this request and the BBC has not shown Crufts since 

3. The Dogs Trust removed all support of Crufts yet it is still going

4. It's biggest sponsor, Pedigree, pulled their £1.5m sponsorship of Crufts following the RSPCA (and two other) reports into the cruelty of crufts

5. No animal focussed media support crufts

All of this happened under the watch of CEO Rosemary Smart, her lack of appropriate action we believe, renders her unsuitable and incompetent as a CEO. We are calling for her removal and for Crufts to be stopped/made illegal. In 2019 it's incredible that such cruelty is allowed to exist.  

Why Rosemary specifically? A Companies House check of The Kennel Club lists only Rosemary as an active director, meaning she is the person of significant control of this organisation. She is the ultimate decision maker, she is where the buck stops. She wheels out the chairman or company secretary to defend her but, they are not listed at Companies House, ONLY Rosemary Smart is. Have her removed - save the dogs!
