                                             SEATING
                            This venue has limited seating,
                therefore it is advisable to bring your own if possible

                                                    7
PLEASE NOTE: THIS SHOW IS NOT BENCHED
   AREAS WILL BE PROVIDED FOR CAGES AND SOFT CRATES
Soft Crates: The Kennel Club has asked that we draw attention to the potential health
and safety implications concerning the use of soft crates as in its view, they do not offer
sufficient protection to dogs. They have asked that we point out that dogs should not
be left unattended in soft crates. There have been instances where dogs have escaped
from soft crates which have not been securely fastened, or have been left at the ringside.
We therefore ask that if you use soft crates, you do not leave the dogs unattended either
in the hall, or in an open car park.

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

                           IDENTIFICATION OF DOGS
 It is a Kennel Club requirement that exhibitors display the exhibitor/bench number on
 their cage or container at all times. This is particularly important when cages etc. are
 not on benches and at unbenched shows. Each exhibitor is responsible for proving
 their own crate or cage identification and should note that the original exhibit/bench
 number card as provided by the show society must not be used for this purpose.
 It is important to be able to contact exhibitors and identify dogs where a dog may be in
 distress or where the crate might be blocking a passageway. At benched shows soft
 crates may only be put on benches if they are the appropriate size for both the dog
 and the bench, and the crate can be securely attached to the bench.
 These points were introduced with the safety of all in mind, but most importantly that
 of the dog, and to minimise the potential incidents and injuries.

     a) Those dogs declared Best of Breed.
     b) The dog declared Best from Any Variety Not Separately Classified classes in each Group or on each day.

    on time, and then only with the special permission of the Show Management.
13. Exhibitors must not pick up dogs by their tails and leads when lifting them nor handle a dog in a manner which causes its feet
    not to touch the ground when on the move. This is not acceptable. Exhibitors should note that such practice would constitute
    harsh handling and reports of such practice will be referred to the Committee under Kennel Club Show Regulation F11.

                                                                9

    show/event can be made. All overseas entries without an Authority to Compete number will be returned to the exhibitor/
    competitor.
16. Dogs in Vehicles on Hot Days. Anyone whose dog is entered at a Kennel Club licensed event should take all reasonable
    steps to ensure the needs of their dog(s) are met, and should not put a dog’s health and welfare at risk by any action,
    default, omission or otherwise. Breach of the Kennel Club Regulations in this respect may be referred to the Board for
    disciplinary action under Kennel Club Rules and Regulations.
		 Your dog is vulnerable and at risk during hot weather and the Kennel Club offers the following guidance to help guide you
    through the do’s and don’ts travelling to and whilst at KC licensed events.
    • When travelling to a show please take a moment to consider whether the route to the show is on a busy holiday route,
        and leave earlier to avoid increased time in traffic jams.
    • If your vehicle is not air-conditioned seriously consider whether travelling to the show is a good idea at all.
    • The vehicle should be as fully ventilated as possible, and plenty of stops should be taken, with lots of water available
        to drink.
    • Ensure your dog is not sitting in full sunlight. There should be plenty of free flowing air around the dog.
    • When at the show, never leave your dog in the vehicle.
    • Keep the dog in the shade - take your own shade for example a large umbrella and always have plenty of water available
        to drink so your dog stays well hydrated.
    • Avoid your dog taking part in unnecessary exertion, or from standing in exposed sunlight for extended lengths of time.
		 Remember, if you feel hot your dog is very likely to feel much hotter and dehydrated, and this could lead to dire results.
    Please look after your dog’s welfare. WARNING: IF YOUR DOG IS FOUND TO BE AT RISK FORCIBLE ENTRY TO
    YOUR VEHICLE MAY BE NECESSARY WITHOUT LIABILITY FOR ANY DAMAGE CAUSED.
17. Anyone whose dog is entered at a Kennel Club licensed event should take all reasonable steps to ensure the needs of
    their dog(s) are met, and should not put a dog’s health and welfare at risk by any action, default, omission or otherwise.
    Breach of the Kennel Club Regulations in this respect may be referred to the Board for disciplinary action under Kennel
    Club Rules and Regulations. The use of pinch collars, electronic shock collars, or prong collars, is not permitted at any
    show licensed by the Kennel Club. This shall apply at the venue or within the precincts of the show.
18. Not for Competition entries will be accepted. Details of each dog so entered must be recorded on the entry form and must
    be Kennel Club registered.
19. No modifications will be made to this Schedule except by permission of the Board of the Kennel Club, which will be followed
    by advertisement in the Canine Press wherever possible.
20. The Show committee reserves to itself the right to refuse, on reasonable grounds, any entries. If in the opinion of the
    Show Secretary, Show Manager or Judge any dog is considered not in a fit state for exhibition owing to disease, savage
    disposition, or any other cause, the dog may be excluded or removed from the Show on the instruction of the Show
    Management. Once excluded or removed from the Show, the dog MUST NOT be brought into the Show at any time
    under any circumstances, and the case must be reported in full to the Kennel Club. The entrance fee will be forfeited.
21. No animal other than an exhibit will be allowed within the precincts of the Show. Exhibits Not For Competition may be
    entered and a notice with the dog's name printed on it may be shown over the bench. Guide dogs for the blind and hearing
    dogs for the deaf may be admitted with Show Management permission.
22. The Catalogue will contain the owners' names in each breed in alphabetical order with their dogs in numerical order.
23. The Committee will not be in any way responsible for any claim for injury or compensation occasioned by or arising out
    of the holding of the Show, or by reason of the act or default of any person in attendance or present thereat. It is on this
    understanding only that entries are received.
24. Except when securely caged, all dogs MUST be on a lead for the duration of the Show, including in the exercise area
    provided.
25. Conversation is not allowed in the judging ring. Exhibitors showing dogs will not be permitted to hold conversation with
    the Judge during the competition. Any exhibitor who persists in addressing the Judge, after being requested not to do so
    by the Ring Steward, the Judge or any of the Show Committee, will be reported to the Kennel Club. NO PERSONS, other
    than the exhibitors (officials excepted) WILL BE ALLOWED IN THE RING DURING THE JUDGING OF CLASSES OR
    SPECIALS.
26. Should any of the judges be prevented from fulfilling their engagements, the Show Committee reserves to itself the right
    of appointing other judges to fulfil their duties. Exhibitors are at liberty to withdraw from competition, but no entry fee can
    be refunded.
27. The Judges will be instructed and empowered to withhold the prize or prizes in any class if, in their opinion, the dog or
    dogs exhibited do not possess sufficient merit. Judges are not empowered to give prizes beyond those offered in the
    Schedule of Prizes.
28. All Judges are requested to take classes within each breed IN THE ORDER IN WHICH THEY ARE ENTERED IN THE
    JUDGING BOOK.
29. OBJECTIONS and PROTESTS. All objections must be made in accordance with the Kennel Club Regulations. Should
    any question arise not provided for by these Regulations or by the Kennel Club Rules, the decision of the Committee shall
    be final. The Committee of the Kennel Club is the Final Court of Appeal.
30. Any owner, competitor, handler or other person in charge of a dog is required to remove immediately any fouling caused
    by their dog(s), and/or any grooming waste, at any Kennel Club licensed show within the licensed venue and within
    the environs of that event including car and caravan parks and approaches. Any organisation holding a Kennel Club
    licensed event is required to provide an adequate number of receptacles for the disposal of such fouling and waste.

                                                               10
31. The Committee of the Show can accept no responsibility for products advertised or sold by stand holders at the Show and
    remind exhibitors that grooming products on sale may not meet the requirements of the Regulations for the Preparation
    of Dogs for Exhibition.
32. The owner, exhibitor, handler or other person in charge of a dog at Kennel Club licensed events must at all times ensure
    that the dog is kept under proper control whilst at the licensed venue, including its environs, car and caravan parks and
    approaches. This Regulation applies before (at any time during the set up period at the venue), during the event and
    afterwards (at any time during the breakdown of the event).
33. A dog may be disqualified by the Board from any award, whether an objection has been lodged or not, if proved amongst

Certificates are not on offer shall be counted as wins at Open Shows.
In the case of a dog owned in partnership and entered in Members' classes or competing for Members' Specials each partner

Wins in Variety classes do not count for entry in Breed classes but when entering for Variety classes, wins in both Breed and
