About the Kennel Club Picture Library

The Kennel Club Picture Library is a commercial picture library.

We supply dog images under licence for books, newspapers, magazines, and websites, TV, educational projects, adverts and any other form of media or creative use, both traditional and digital. Wherever dog images are used to communicate a message, brand or illustrate a story – the Kennel Club Picture Library is your dog image resource.

Our unique dog image collection holds over 70,000 dog images and we currently have over 7,000 dog images available to view online.

The Kennel Club Picture Library manages a wide range of dog images including British breed standards, rare breeds, puppies, Crufts, dog shows, dog paintings, dog illustrations, dogs and people, dog care, dog activities, assistance and service dogs, historical, social history, postcards, greeting cards, cigarette cards and much more. We also hold the Diane Pearce Collection © and historical pictures of the Royal Family with their dogs.

The Kennel Club Picture Library proudly represents 15 of the UK’s best dog photographers for modern and contemporary dog images.

** Due to the Coronavirus pandemic and the temporary closing of the Kennel Club offices immediately after Crufts 2020, we were unable to upload Crufts 2020 photos to our image store. We will resume uploading all photos including Best of Breed winning photos when it is safe for us to return to our London offices.

We hope your families, friends, and dogs are all safe at this unprecedented time.

Kindest regards
