Bitches in season: Bitches in season are welcome to participate in the competition. If your bitch is in season, notification must be given upon check-in – at the latest. If seasoning is noticed by the handler at a later stage of the competition, notification must be given immediately.

PARTICIPATION LIMITATIONS AND PRIORITIZATION OF PARTICIPANTS

A maximum of 1400 runs per day (app. 350 runs per ring) have been set as a limit by the steering committee. Each handler is limited to a maximum of 6 runs per competition day.

There are no demands upon participation for more than one day. However, in case the maximum limit per day (1400 runs per day) is reached before the 5th of March 2017 the participants will be prioritized in accordance with the following criteria:

  • The number of days each competitor wants to participate. The more days you register, the higher your registration will be prioritized. Highest priority will be given to competitors who register for at least 2 runs per day each of the 6 days of competition.
  • Priority will also be given to competitors who volunteer to act as officials during the week – even if not able to compete the entire week. Highest priority will be given to competitors who register only one dog for the competition, as well as competitors whose none competing family members volunteer as officials.

All competitors, who have registered on-line for participation before the 5th of March 2017 will be contacted with either confirmation or refusal of participation within 3 weeks.

In case the maximum limit of runs per day is not exceeded by the 5th of March 2017, the remaining runs will be assigned in the order that we receive your on-line registration.

Please note that your participation IS NOT GUARANTEED, UNTIL YOU RECEIVE A FINAL CONFIRMATION via e-mail which includes your personal registration number and detailed payment instructions.
