NOTICE TO EXHIBITORS

There are to be no Xpens in the building, and Crates must be stacked (limited space). Dogs may not be left in soft sided crates unattended (soft sided crates discouraged) or in crates that are open or unzippered. There will be no saving of floor/grooming/crating space. Large floor mats will not be
allowed. All exhibitors are expected to abide by the UKC Rules and Regulations and to cooperate with convention center staff, stewards and club members of the host clubs.

1. All events are held under the Rules and Regulations of the United Kennel Club, Inc. By entering this show/trial, exhibitors acknowledge that they are familiar with the rules and regulations of this sport.

2. Absolutely no alcoholic beverages or illegal drugs will be allowed on the grounds or in the buildings on the day of a UKC Licensed event.

3. It is expressly understood that exhibitors alone are responsible for the behavior of their dogs and/or children. Any exhibitor whose dogs and/or children create unnecessary disturbances or repeatedly engage in unsafe or disruptive behavior may, at the discretion of the Event Committee, be
asked to leave the show site. In that case, no refund of any fees paid will be made. 4. UKC, AHTA, HMCC, their agents, and their employees assume no responsibility for any loss, damage, or injury sustained by spectators or by exhibitors, or to any of their dogs or property, and
further assume no responsibility for injury to children not under the control of their parents or guardians. UKC, AHTA, HMCC are not responsible for loss, accidents or theft.

5. Dogs may arrive any time prior to their scheduled time of judging. Dogs not required for further judging will be excused.

6. The “No Smoking” rule will be strictly enforced in all buildings and areas so designated.

7. Exhibitors and dog owners are expected and required to clean up after their own dogs. Any person witnessing a violation of this rule must report it to the Event Committee. The Event Committee may ask any person violating this rule to leave the event grounds. No refund will be made if an exhibitor is asked to leave the grounds.

8. UKC will vigorously support any motel that files a complaint about exhibitors who fail to keep their dogs quiet or to clean up after them. In order that the bad conduct of a few exhibitors does not spoil it for the majority of responsible exhibitors, UKC will take strong disciplinary action against any offenders.

9. UKC encourages exhibitors to present their dogs with the least amount of grooming necessary to enable a Judge to properly compare each dog with the standard of its breed. Dogs should be clean, with nails cut to a length suitable for the dog to perform the work for which it was bred, and with clean teeth. The Judge’s determination that this rule has been violated shall be final. UKC enforces rules against artificially altering pigment and coat color, coat texture, and surgical alterations as outlined in the UKC Rules and Regulations.

10. Dogs may not be left unattended when crated in soft mesh crates. No dog may be left in an unlatched or unzippered crate.

11. Except when being judged or when crated, dogs must be kept on leash.
