In the rush to complete event registrations, submit applications, judging panels, and show results, or deal with the multitude of issues that are involved with hosting an event, it is easy to forget a few things. Below are some friendly reminders regarding some common misunderstandings or misconceptions that the Event Operations department sees on a regular basis.
- If there is an incident resulting in a dog disqualified by the event committee, special attention must be paid to the completion of the proper form.To disqualify a dog, all of the following must be present: 1) an attack to a dog or person, 2) an injury to dog or person, and 3) the committee must believe the dog presents a hazard to persons or other dogs. This means that on the Dog Aggression – Action By Event Committee form, items numbered 1, 2 and 4 must be answered “Yes” in order for item number 5 to be a “Yes.”
- There is no application fee for clubs that have less than a 30 dog entry at the previous years show.
- When using the Online Plans tools remember that your application should be submitted prior to submitting your Judges Panels just as is done when submitting these via hard copy.
- Each club has its own event plans representative based on the state the club operates in. All letters are signed by the managers but the individual representative issues the letters.
