Registration will be open on Tuesday 10th April between 12 noon and 5pm. Everyone competing is expected to register at this time. Each dog will be allocated ONE number for the entire event. One card will be provided for the handler to wear and a second card - along with card holder and cable tie - will be provided for the handler to attach to the dog's leash. Handlers may attach the card holder to the leash using an alternative method e.g. carabiner. Both handler and dog MUST be wearing the correct card number on entering the ring.


There will be no vetting. However, the Committee and officials of the Nationals reserves the right to inspect a bitch at any time. As per rule 4.6 Bitches in season are not permitted to compete in trials or be within the trial precincts. Any entrant that is found to be running a bitch in season or has a bitch in season within the trial precincts will be banned from running any dog in any further events. All dogs owned by the entrant will also be banned from running in any further events. Exceptions are any dogs in co-ownership that do not live with the banned entrant. Any finals spots that may have been achieved by the banned entrant (regardless of the dog) will also be deemed ineligible for finals.

Note: There will be areas at KCC Park which do not form part of the trial precincts.

Bitches in Season Refund Policy

If a bitch comes into season prior to registration, a full refund will be given for that bitch (no other dogs/bitches owned or handled by the owner).

If a bitch comes into season after registration proof will be required by vetting. If deemed in season a full refund will be granted for that bitch (no other dogs/bitches owned or handled by the owner) for the remainder of classes. Arrangements for vetting to be made with the Trial Secretary.

Trial Secretary must be notified in writing for refund to be processed.

Height Cards

As per rule 4.3 all dogs must have a Height Card prior to competing in any ANKC trial. Please ensure you bring your height card with you as proof of your dog’s height as this will be required at Check-in. If you are unable to locate your height card, you will need to contact the Agility Committee in your State to have a new card issued. The Nationals Working Group and Judges may also request to sight your Height Card and/or ask that your dog be measured.

Lunch Break

There will be a designated lunch break each day for ALL rings from 12.00pm - 12.45pm. Rings will re-start at 1.00pm. Judges will be given discretion to adjust times where there are a small number of dogs to complete the ring.

Public Toilets

Competitors are reminded that they are NOT to use the basins in the toilet blocks to soak cool coats. Water dripped on the tiles is an extremely serious OH&S issue. There are taps available around the grounds.


Presentations will be conducted at the end of each day in the Pavilion, where awards will be presented for 1st to 3rd Place. Photos of handler and dog for each placing will be taken with the judge after each class has been presented. This will be in a dedicated area away from the presentation area so as to ensure presentations are completed as soon as possible.

BYO Chair for presentations.

Presentations for Teams, Junior Teams and Heat Finals will be on Sunday. Presentations for Games will be on the day of the event.
