GENERAL TERMS

The show is organized according to the reglements of FCI and SKJ and the regulations issued by the organizer. Only individuals registered in the studbooks recognized by the FCI can take part in the show. A readable copy of the dog’s original pedigree must be attached to each application. Each entered dog registered must have a pedigree, proof of registration (puppy card) is not enough. Applications for dogs for which the pedigree certificate issued by the FCI-recognized studbook will not be uploaded to the online system will be automatically deleted (this also applies to minor puppy and puppy classes). The organizer has the right not to accept the application without stating the reason. It is not possible to enter a dog on the day of the show. It is not possible to transfer a dog to another class on the day of the show. If the show is not held for reasons beyond the control of the organizer, the entry fees will be used to cover the incurred costs.

A judge is obliged to disqualify aggressive dogs. Provoking dogs against each other is not allowed. The use of sprays, powders and other cosmetic products is prohibited. Double handling of dogs from outside of the ring is prohibited.
It is strictly forbidden to leave dogs tied up on trimming tables except the time they are being prepared for the show (trimmed, brushed or combed). Violation of these prohibitions may result in the exclusion of the dog from the show. In breeds where the standard does not allow docking/cropping, it is upon the decision of the judge not to judge this dog, as there is an indication of an operation being done with a purpose of correcting the natural state of the body feature (e.g. docked tail, cropped ear). There as on why a CANNOT BE JUDGED mark was given must be clearly stated in the critique.

The judges judge according to valid breed standards issued by the Federation Cynologique  Internationale (FCI). The judge may refuse to judge a dog that enters the ring late. The judge is obliged to refuse to judge a dog whose owner does not present the dog's pedigree at the request of the ring steward.

Selling puppies at the exhibition grounds is strictly forbidden!

The organizer is not responsible for damages caused by the dog or to the dog. The owner is responsible for all damage caused by his dog. Free running of dogs around the showground is prohibited. The exhibitor is responsible for the well-being of his dog at the show – he must not expose him to situations that could endanger his health or even his life, e.g. leave it in the car in extreme winter or heat or treat it cruelly. Anyone who violates these principles will be excluded from this and subsequent shows.

The exhibitor by entering the dog for the show as a person concerned in accordance with § 13 of Act no. 18/2018 Coll. on the protection of personal data, gives its consent to the organizer for the processing of his personal data (name, surname) and agrees to their publication (name, surname), photo documentation and results of the show on the organizer’s website.

The organizer has the right not to allow the exhibitor to participate in the show (whether in the breed ring or in the final ring), if the exhibitor does not use and properly wear the correct and visible catalog number of the individual he is exhibiting!
