The Main Change for
Method of Entry.
Instead of Nominating your Dog(s) as in past years,
the K9 Entry System using its Results database
will provide the
pass card data
to select the highest scoring dogs and together with the
Owners Nominated Interstate Passes,
(maximum of 3 passes per dog per disipline), the Top Dog finalists
will be determined.
So the hard work of tallying, copying passes and posting your
entries has ended, and owners who have interstate passes will be
asked to provide details.
