The latest information from the KC.

From 2022 Papillons are back in band E and 1ST 2ND 3RD in OPEN and LIMIT will achieve STUD BOOK numbers.
There is also information on number of dogs required for progressing to award CC’s

More opportunities to win Stud Book numbers
Stud Book Bands more evenly distributed
Stud Book Bands no longer linked to judge approval criteria
The Kennel Club has announced details of its Stud Book Bands for 2022. As previously announced, Stud Book Bands are allocated based upon average show entries, using the same formula as for the CC allocation. These new bands have been adjusted so that they are more evenly spread than in previous years, which will have the bonus of providing extra opportunities for dogs to gain Stud Book numbers.
In making this adjustment, the link has also been removed between a breed’s Stud Book Band and the minimum requirements for hands-on experience to be considered to award Challenge Certificates for the first time. These numbers will be reviewed regularly by the Judges Committee.
The following table shows the Stud Book Bands for 2022 for all eligible breeds including details of those which have moved from one band to another.
