18.    Trophy holders please ensure that clean trophies are returned in time for the trial.

 

 

DOGS IN CARS ON HOT DAYS

Your dog is vulnerable and AT RISK if left in a vehicle in high temperatures and even on days considered as slightly warm.   Please take care of your dog.

If your dog is found to be at risk, forcible entry to your vehicle may be necessary without liability for any damage caused.

 

WELFARE OF DOGS

Competitors whose dogs are entered at a Kennel Club Ltd licensed event should take all reasonable steps to ensure that the needs of their dogs are met and should not knowingly put their dogs’ health and welfare at risk by any action, default, omission or otherwise.   A breach of this Regulation may be referred to the General Committee for disciplinary action under Kennel Club Rules and Regulations.

 

DEFINITION OF STAKES

Open Stake:  A Stake in which dogs have the opportunity of gaining a qualification towards the title of Field Trial champion (K Regulations refer) and towards entry in the Championship in which entry is open to all dogs of a specified breed.   It may be limited to a prescribed number of runners (J4 refers), in which case these shall be decided by a draw conducted in accordance with Regulation J7.i so that preference is given to previous performance.

 

Novice Stake:  A Stake which is confined to dogs which have not gained a place which would qualify them for first preference in the draw for Open Stakes.
