REGULATIONS PART 6 - THE REGISTER & REGISTRATION : CORRECTION

Please note we have been made aware of the following corrections and typographical errors and have arranged for Regulations Part 6 to be rectified.

Deletion of Clause 3.9 (c) in accordance with Item 7.5.7 of the October 2016 Board minutes.  Copy of dot point (c) which has been deleted is noted below for information:

c. This part not applying in any case where the exhibit is registered with the recognised overseas canine controlling body as being owned or part-owned by a
Member of an ANKC affiliated Member Body. (Amended 10/15, 6.1)

Correction of typographical error in Clause 10.1.1 (d). Copy of dot point (d) is noted below highlighting the correction:

a.
  The importer is to provide additional breed information, such as additional text expanding on the breed standard, photographs and diagrams to allow ANKVC Ltd to prepare an appropriate Breed Standard Extension. The importer shall also provide written approval for the use of this material. (10/06 - 6.1.2, Amended 10/13 – 5.6.4)

Our website has been updated accordingly.


OBEDIENCE INTERPRETATION

Reference is made to the Group Exercises rule in the current ANKC Ltd Rules for the Conduct of Obedience Trials and in particular to clarification of the highlighted section noted below:

“Group Exercises:
Group Exercises must consist of a minimum of three (3) dogs and a maximum of ten (10) dogs and must be judged by the same person who officiated in the individual exercises segment of the Trial. Each dog must have a separate Handler for the Group Exercises. If there are insufficient entrants the Judge will ask the Steward to furnish stand-in dogs to make up a Group. These dogs must be left on lead and the Handler must stay next to the dog in the heel position. Unless an exhibitor has multiple entries an exhibit must be handled by the one competitor for all exercises. In extreme weather conditions the Judge shall consider using areas of shade where practical to conduct the group stay exercises.

The distance between dogs for all group exercises must be approximately two and a half (2.5) metres.”

The National Obedience & Tracking Committee has confirmed the following interpretation which shall be binding in accordance with the rules:

Once a dog has been withdrawn from the ring it is no longer being judged, no points awarded.

This being the case, it may cause insufficient dogs to be eligible for the stay exercises and the steward may ask for any dog to be a stand in for the stay exercises, even one which may have previously been entered and competed in the class in question, because once withdrawn is no longer part of that class.

Any dog that is being used as a stand in dog for the stay exercises must remain on lead, as per the rule book, regardless of what level the dog competes at.
