2. Every possible effort will be made to accommodate exhibitors who have dogs entered in multiple events, but judges are not required to wait for dogs. Exhibitors are advised to pick up their armbands as early as possible and to notify stewards in all rings affected by the conflict so that judges may more easily work around any conflicts.

3. If the Exhibitor has a conflict, Conformation takes priority over Obedience, Rally Obedience, and Agility.

4 When there is a conflict, the exhibitor should inform the judge/steward ahead of time of a possible conflict and make every effort to be available for judging prior to conclusion of the class. However, if an exhibitor misses a scheduled judging time (for a performance event), the judge has the discretion to allow that exhibitor to run at the end of the class. Though, if the judging of the specific class has been completed the exhibitor shall not be eligible to compete and will be marked absent. The judge’s decision is final.

Large floor mats will not be allowed. All exhibitors are expected to abide by the UKC Rules and Regulations and to cooperate with grounds 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, Puget Sound K-9s, Argus Ranch, 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.

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.
