AKC Regulation Changes

The AKC has approved a couple of new regulation changes effective January 2, 2018. 

First, the entry limit per judge has been increased to 350. This is to account for the Absent entries so the Judge will still handle about 330 entries. 

Second, Geographically Isolated Trials. Clubs in Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico will be able to hold and additional three trials per year. Also clubs in the contiguous 48 will also be able to hold 15 trials per year if they are geographically isolated (see the blog for the details).

2018 Papillon National Speciality

Mark the dates! The 2018 Papillon National Speciality will be held in the Kissimmee area. There will be three days of agility trials starting June 1. The agility will be held at the Kissimmee Valley Livestock Show at Osceola Heritage Park (where DACOF is held). The KVLS is a more intimate venue with a 60x100 arena. AKC has approved the facility as long as four foot bars are used. Bob Jeffers is the Judge and entry is unlimited with Victoria MacVicar as the backup judge. The remainder of the speciality will be held at the Park Inn by Radisson Resort also in Kissimmee following the agility trials.
