Association for dog sport, breeding and pedigree registration.
Our goal is to introduce everyone to the Belgian dog sport and the registration of our pedigrees.
The National Federation of Belgian Kynologists (NVBK) is an organization that results in clubs. These are housed, according to the discipline, in different subsections.
Both the advanced trainer and the layman in the dog sport find here his liking.
The experts will find everything about the competitions, the necessary forms and the latest news, the laymen will find a brief overview of our sports programs and the address where contact can be made.
All sports such as ring, obedience, agility, breeding / show, waterwork and Globalring are managed by our own committees under the watchful eye of the central management.
The NVBK is managed by the BOARD OF DIRECTORS and a delegated DAILY MANAGEMENT.
Each discipline is led by its own committee. Each committee results under the board of directors.
At the request of domestic and foreign dog lovers, the NVBK has decided to offer the GLOBAL discipline to all dog lovers.
Globalring is a program that ties in with the existing Belgian ring program, it also offers opportunities to participate in National and International competitions. This discipline is autonomous and is not part of the ring program.
Global also exists in three categories and is accessible to all dog breeds.
