More Dog Measurers Appointed

Following a recommendation from the Agility Liaison Council, the Kennel Club has responded to the needs of the agility community by appointing additional agility dog measurers. All measurers are fully trained to ensure consistency and fairness and the best possible standards of competition in agility. 

The Kennel Club would like to remind agility competitors that all dogs must be measured before they compete at their first agility show. Kennel Club Regulations require that a dog be measured twice, with the second measurement carried out between 12 and 24 months after the initial measurement, unless the dog is obviously over 430mm (1ft 5ins), in which case the official measurers can strike out the second measurement in the Agility Record Book.

Dogs must be a minimum of 15 months old before the first official measurement takes place. However, dogs that are in the official measurers’ opinion, obviously over 430mm (1ft 5ins) prior to reaching 15 months of age can be measured. The handler must be in possession of a Kennel Club Agility Record Book confirming the dog’s registered name and number, with at least one form of identification, which could be a microchip number, tattoo number or a clear photograph.

Full details of the measuring process are included in the Agility Regulations booklet available from the Kennel Club, 1-5 Clarges Street, Piccadilly, London, W1J 8AB, by telephoning 0870 6066750 Ext: 278 or online at www.thekennelclub.org.uk

Societies or individuals are invited to contact their local Measurers to arrange measuring sessions. It is recommended that where possible measuring should be held at training clubs or separate measuring sessions.

Kennel Club Reviews Measuring Regulations

A working party consisting of dog agility measurers and Liaison Council representatives was set up during 2007 to review the agility measuring procedure and Regulations. The results of the working party’s discussions have now been approved by the General Committee. To summarise the recommendations:

  •  It was agreed that an obviously ‘Large’ dog could be measured earlier than 15 months and would not require a second measurement provided this was indicated by the measurers at the time.
  •  If a dog was measured into two different height categories at its two measurements, then a third, and final, measurement would be required to confirm the height category in which the dog should compete. This measurement must be undertaken within two months of the second measurement. Pending the outcome of the third measurement, the dog may continue to compete in its initial height category.
  • The working party also clarified that a microchip or ear tattoo number would take precedence over a photograph.
  • Appeals would now be allowed up to 30 days from the last measurement.

To support these recommendations the General Committee has now approved the following Regulation changes with effect from 1 January 2008.

Regulation H(1)(B)4(2)

FROM:

Large dogs entered for competition must be measured before they compete at their first agility show, if they have not competed prior to 1 January 2006. Dogs must be a minimum of 15 months old before the first official measurement takes place. (Dogs incapable of being measured at the time they are presented to the measuring officials will not be eligible for competition until such time that the official measurement has been successfully carried out.)

TO:

Large dogs entered for competition must be measured before they compete at their first agility show, if they have not competed prior to 1 January 2006.  Dogs must be a minimum of 15 months old before the first official measurement takes place. Dogs that are, in the official measurers’ opinion, obviously over 430mm prior to reaching 15 months of age can be measured. (Dogs incapable of being measured at the time they are presented to the measuring officials will not be eligible for competition until such time that the official measurement has been successfully carried out.) (Amendment underlined)

Regulation H(1)(B).4.(3).

FROM:

A second and final official measurement must be carried out on the dog between 12 and 24 months after the first. (Delete underlined)

TO:

A second measurement must be carried out on the dog between 12 and 24 months after the first unless the dog is obviously over 430mm (1ft 5ins), in which case the official measurers can strike out the second measurement in the Agility Record Book. The dog cannot be reclassified into the lower height category retrospectively if the second measurement is not taken up within the 24 month period. If the second measurement places the dog in the same height category as the first, this will be the final measurement. However, if the second measurement places the dog in a different category then a third measurement must be carried out within two calendar months by two measurers, both of whom must not have measured the dog on a previous occasion. The dog’s height category will be that confirmed by two out of the three measurements. The dog should compete in the original height category until the final decision has been made. (Amendments underlined)

Regulation H(1)(B).4.(10) 

FROM:

Dogs presented for measurement should be wearing a collar and must be under the control of the owner/handler. Dogs presented for measurement that cannot be controlled by the owner/handler will not be measured.

TO:

Dogs presented for measurement should be wearing a collar and must be under the control of the owner/handler. Dogs presented for measurement that cannot be controlled by the owner/handler will not be measured. Where a dog is known to have a microchip or ear tattoo this form of identification should take precedence over a photograph and should be used to confirm the identity of the dog. If these types of identification are not available, a clear identifiable photograph must be used. (Amendment underlined)

Regulation H(1)(B)4.(13)

FROM: 

In the event of a dispute over the measuring procedure the Kennel Club will evaluate whether there are grounds for appeal. The owner/handler of the dog may appeal in writing to the Kennel Club, but must do so within 90 days of the disputed measure having taken place Any appeal must be accompanied by a written statement from the owner/handler of the dog with a brief description as to the ground for the appeal and must be accompanied by the appropriate fee.

TO: 

In the event of a dispute over the measuring procedure the Kennel Club will evaluate whether there are grounds for appeal. The owner/handler of the dog may appeal in writing to the Kennel Club, but must do so within 30 days of the disputed measure having taken place. Any appeal must be accompanied by a written statement from the owner/handler of the dog with a brief description as to the ground for the appeal and must be accompanied by the appropriate fee. (Amendment underlined)

The General Committee also approved several procedural matters as follows:

  • That the compulsory, third measurement be free of charge.
  • That the third measurement be compulsory for dogs measured after 1 January 2008. Any dog which had changed height category before 1January 2008 could have the option of a third measurement, provided it was undertaken prior to 1 May 2008. Two different measurers would still be required and the standard fee would be payable.
  • Any measurer who measured a dog into a different height category must inform the Kennel Club as soon as possible, to enable the Kennel Club to ensure the dog received a third measure. Any individual that did not have their dog measured a third time would be contacted and reminded of the Regulations. If the third measurement was not obtained, the matter could be referred to the WTOA Sub-Committee.
  • Spot checks to be undertaken by societies on a random basis. It was suggested that ten books for each height category could be requested at a show. If anyone could not produce their record book, the dog’s details should be included in the incident book and the matter referred to the Kennel Club. The dog should still be allowed to compete in the entered classes. The Sub-Committee further recommended that any show which held a Kennel Club or Crufts qualifying competition should be required to undertake spot checks.
  • Any Society which invited measurers to attend, whether at a show or a specific measuring session, should ensure the necessary facilities, including a table, were available.

A meeting of all measurers is due to be held at the Kennel Club at the end of November 2007 to review the measurement procedure and to be briefed on the regulation and procedural changes.


 Even More Agility Dog Measurers Needed

Following the review of the agility dog measuring scheme, a need has arisen for additional measurers in Scotland and Northern Ireland. The Kennel Club is now inviting applications from interested parties who would like to be considered to measure the dogs, to establish the category into which they fall. The position will be of interest to Judges, Show Managers or those closely involved with the running of Agility Shows.

Those interested should send their details to Debbie Deuchar, Team Leader – WTOA, Canine Activities, The Kennel Club, 1-5 Clarges Street, Piccadilly, London W1J 8AB by 30th November 2007.


Additional Agility Dog Measurers Needed

Following the expansion of the agility dog measuring scheme, a need has arisen for additional measurers in Hampshire, Bristol / Somerset and Norfolk. The Kennel Club is now inviting applications from interested parties who would like to be considered to measure agility dogs to establish into which size category they fall. The position will be of interest to Judges, Show Managers or those closely involved with the running of Agility Shows.

Those interested should send their details to Debbie Deuchar, Senior Administrator – WTOA, The Kennel Club, 1-5 Clarges Street, Piccadilly, London W1J 8AB by the 30 June 2007. (07/06/07)


More Dog Agility Measurers Appointed 

The Kennel Club is pleased to announce that, following recommendations from the Agility Liaison Council, additional agility dog measurers have been appointed.  The new appointments have been made to meet the demand for more properly qualified measurers.

All measurers are fully trained to ensure consistency and to ensure fairness and the best possible standards of competition in agility.  Some of the new appointees are still awaiting training, but will be able to officiate at measuring sessions shortly. 

The Kennel Club would like to remind agility competitors that all dogs must be measured before they compete at their first agility show.  Kennel Club Regulations require that a dog be measured twice, with the second measurement carried out between 12 and 24 months after the initial measurement.

To be measured a dog must be a minimum of 15 months of age, the handler must be in possession of a Kennel Club Agility Record Book confirming the dog’s registered name and number, with at least one form of identification, which could be a clear photograph, microchip number or tattoo number.

Full details of the measuring process are included in the Agility Regulations booklet available from the Kennel Club, 1-5 Clarges Street, Piccadilly, London, W1J 8AB, by telephoning 020 7518 1016 or on-line at www.the-kennel-club.org.uk

Societies or individuals are invited to contact their local Measurers to arrange measuring sessions.  It is recommended that where possible measuring sessions are not held at shows.

Dog Measuring Results To Date

The total number of dogs that have been measured to date is 1929, with 78 dogs having been measured twice. The following statistics have been collated by Kate Austin and the Kennel Club would like to thank Kate for all her help in this matter.

From the total of 1929*

  • 954 have measured Small (56%)

  • 743 have measured Medium (44%)

  • 232 have measured Large

*This includes new dogs that will start competing during 2006.

318 dogs have measured Mini/Medium, requiring they change height category. 42% of the new Medium category is made up of dogs that were previously Mini. Only a handful of dogs measured Midi/Large. From the above statistics, it can be seen that equivalent Small and Medium classes will be a comparable size.

Societies or individuals are invited to contact their local Measurers (see below)  to arrange measuring sessions or to arrange for Measurers to attend shows.

Full details of the measuring process are included in the Agility Regulations booklet available from the Kennel Club, 1-5 Clarges Street, Piccadilly, London, W1J 8AB, by telephoning 020 7518 1016 or on-line at www.the-kennel-club.org.uk

Reminder

The Kennel Club would like to remind all agility competitors that all new dogs must be measured before they compete at their first show with the exception of any large dog having competed prior to 1 January 2006. Kennel Club Regulations require that a dog be measured twice, with the second measurement carried out between 12 and 24 months after the initial measurement.

To be measured a dog must be a minimum of 15 months of age, the handler must be in possession of a Kennel Club Agility Record Book confirming the dog’s registered name and number, with at least one form of identification which could be a clear photograph, microchip number or tattoo number.


Official Measuring of Agility Dogs Update

 The Kennel Club would like to remind agility competitors of the following regulations:-

  • All currently competing Mini and Midi dogs must be measured before 1 September 2005

  • Any mini or midi dog that has not competed prior to 1 January 2005 must be measured before its first competition.

  • Any large dog that has not competed prior to 1 January 2006 must be measured before its first competition.

  • Any large dog that has competed prior to 1 January 2006 does not need to be measured.

Kennel Club Regulations require that a dog must be measured twice, with the second measurement to be carried out between 12 and 24 months after the initial measurement.

To be measured a dog must be a minimum of 15 months of age. The handler must be in possession of a Kennel Club Agility Record Book with the dog’s registered name and number, with at least one form of identification which could be a clear photograph, microchip number or tattoo number.

Societies are invited to contact their local Measurers to arrange measuring sessions or to arrange for Measurers to attend shows.


Measuring Up at Beacon

Kate & Jackie at the WC2003 without their measuring tapesJackie Gardner and Kate Howard will be holding a Mini/Midi measuring session at Beacon Agility DTC training venue, Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands on Sunday, 28 November... weather permitting.

Please bring along your KC record book with your KC details completed. If your dogs are not Micro-chipped or Tattooed you will need to have a photo stuck in your book as identification.

Kate and Jackie will have a limited supply of record books. Record Books can also be ordered from the publication department at the Kennel Club at a cost of £1.50.

If people want to come along they can join in the training session as guests for a fee of £3.00, and that tea and coffee will be provided.


What to Do If There is No Official Measurer in your Area

Brenda TentenThe north of England has only two measurers, and some areas like Wales and Northern Ireland have none at all, so it will take time to measure all the dogs in Mini or Midi classes. Brenda Tenten suggests contacting the nearest measurer to you from the list to find out what their appointments are, or to ask the shows that you are entering to invite some measurers along. Measurers have to have an invitation from the organisers.

Alternatively you could organise a measuring day at your club - invite some measurers along, publicise the event (the measurers will need to cover their expenses through fees), and perhaps include a mini/midi fun day for those attending to make it enjoyable. Just some ideas. (16/11/04)


Who Can Measure Up

The Kennel Club would like to confirm the following measuring officials have now been approved and are listed below.  This is not a definitive list and other measurers may be appointed. Societies are invited to contact their local measurers to arrange measuring sessions or to arrange for measurers to attend shows.
