All dogs must have a CARO registration number in order to compete. This registration should be applied for in advance of the trial, or you may do so at the trial by bringing the completed form, and a cheque for the correct amount (payable to CARO).

It is expressly understood that exhibitors alone are responsible for the behaviour of their dogs and/or children. Any exhibitor whose dogs and/or children create unnecessary disturbances or engages in unsafe, disruptive, or aggressive behaviour may be asked to leave the show grounds; no refunds will be given.

An officiating Judge, and/or the Chairperson of the trial, may dismiss from the trial site any person subjecting the Judge, or members, or the organizing committee to abuse, whether that person is competing in the trial or not.

Prong collars, choke chains, e-collars and other similar devices are not permitted on the property at any time. Extendible leashes are not permitted. Without exception, all dogs must be penned, crated, or attended on leash when not in the ring.

Female dogs in heat are not permitted on site.

Dogs that engage in disruptive barking or whining should be crated in a closed vehicle, parking at house location (3min walk) to avoid disruption to other participants. An addiional crating area (Dog Gym) may be made available.

Clean, dry indoor shoes must be worn inside the buildings  (blue floor arae). For safety purposes, all outdoor, wet, or soiled shoes must be and kept with the competitor at their crating location, or left on the boot racks provided.

Refunds will only be issued if the Trial Secretary is notified before the trial closes and the dog is unable to compete for medical reasons; a veterinary note must be provided (a female in heat is not considered a medical reason, females in heat are not permitted at the trial). Admin charge of $15 applies.

Weather - if the Judge is able to get here (travelling from Cassleman) the trial wil go ahead and refunds based on weather will not be offered. If the trial is cancelled due to weather we will honour a new date or full refund.

Final running orders will be emailed on the Wednesday before the trial; no further changes will be made after that time.

Move-Ups/Lateral Moves: Please advise the Trail Secretary by email at least 10 days prior to the event of any move-ups.

Same day move-ups for remaining runs will be allowed time permitting. 

Equipment for Working: Where applicable for Working skills the handler must bring their own equipment (e.g. designated retrieves, retrieves on flat and over jump and scent discrimination et al).
