RE AMENDMENT TO BREED STANDARD: ROTTWEILER

Legally Docked Rottweilers
The recent advice from the FCI of amendments to the Rottweiler Standard has led to dissemination of flawed information and instructions on how the breed should be judged from sources other than ANKC. The attention of all Australian licenced Judges of Rottweilers is drawn to the following extract from FCI Regulation in particular the reference to discrimination.

“Dogs with docked tails are to be admitted in accordance with the legal regulations of their home countries and those of the country where the show takes place. The judging of docked and undocked dogs must be done without any discrimination and solely in accordance with the valid breed standard. The organizing country’s regulations concerning showing docked dogs should be stated in the show schedule or on the entry forms as well as in the show regulations.”

Further:
The Chairperson of the National Breed Standards Coordination Group and the National Show Judges Training Committee, Marie Merchant advises Judges should be reminded that in accordance with the ANKC Prohibited Procedures Policy, Tail Docking is a restrictive procedure under State and Territory legislation. (Refer to individual State or Territory legislation for clarification.), however legally docked dogs are eligible to be exhibited in Australia and are not to be penalized in the show ring.

 

BORDER COLLIE SURVEY RESULTS

Recently ANKC Ltd conducted a survey to ascertain the opinion of owners of Border Collies in relation to amendments to the breed standard.  The response received has indicated overwhelming support for the following:

Effective immediately the breed standard will be amended as follows:

The Ear description to include érect or semi-erect ears’;

Ears: Medium size and texture, set well apart. Carried erect or semierect and sensitive in use.

The Coat description to include ‘smooth coat is permitted’;

HAIR: Two varieties: Moderately long or Smooth. In both, topcoat dense and medium textured, undercoat soft and dense giving good weather resistance. In the moderately long-coated variety, abundant coat forms mane, breeching and brush. On face, ears, forelegs (except for feather), hindlegs from hock to ground, hair should be short and smooth.

The Colour description to be replaced with á variety of colours is permissible, provided white shall never predominate’.

COLOUR: Variety of colours permissible. White should never predominate.

Breeders of registered Border Collies may amend the colour status of their dog in the ANKC database for a fee of $10 until 31 December 2019 after which time no colour alternations in the database will be permitted without permission of ANKC.
