Regulation Changes Effective 1 January 2017

As a result of the October 2016 voting round there will be several changes to the regulations that will become effective from 1 January 2016.  A full list of changes can be seen here

Eukanuba Obedience Top 20 Competition

An Obedience Top 20 competition has been introduced which will run from 1 October to 30 September each year.  There is a prize of $1,000 for the owner/s of the winning dog each year.  Further details and the current standings for the competition can be found on the NZKC website here: Obedience Top 20

Results of NDOA Dates Survey

As part of the NZKC Major Events strategy the Executive Council wishes to separate the three major events (National Dog Show, NDOA and NZDAC) so that these are better spaced throughout the year rather than having them all in October (and two at Labour weekend).  It had already been decided that the National Dog Show would move to the July school holidays so it remains to decide whether NDOA or NZDAC would shift from Labour weekend and, if so, to where.

To assist with this we held a survey during August and September using Survey Monkey to determine the preferred timing for the NDOA (Easter or Queen's Birthday) if  we did not get our first preference of Labour weekend.

The results of this survey are shown below.  This shows a clear preference for Easter over Queen's Birthday.

There will be an anouncement shortly on whether NDOA or NZDAC will be staying at Labour weekend and where the other one will be moving to.  Note that that there will be no change before 2018.

Voting Register

The voting register can now be viewed through the NZKC website by following this link: Obedience Voting Register

If you are not logged on to the NZKC site it will direct you to the log-in page and then take you back to the register once you are logged in.

You can check whether you are on the registers you think you should be on (Obedience, Working Trials and Rally-O) and also check your details.  If any of the Voting Register details are wrong (or you are missing from a register) there is an option to email your region rep to get your details updated.  There is also an option to request a change of your NZKC member details (address, email, phone etc.) and this will send an email to the NZKC office with the requested changes.
