This year, CKC is moving forward with an enhanced computer system, offering users an improved online experience with tools that make doing business with CKC much simpler and faster. It will also accommodate the submission of electronic event results. To facilitate these new processes, each dog must be able to be identified by the system (i.e. have a unique number).
When the system is implemented, CKC will initiate a new process requiring all recognized breeds that are considered listed dogs entering events to obtain a Temporary Competition Number (TCN). The TCN allows a dog that is eligible for CKC registration or an Event Registration Number (ERN), to participate in CKC events.
Temporary Competition Numbers must be obtained before the closing date of entries. Once the dog is permanently registered or has an ERN, the TCN will no longer be valid.
While there is no fee for the Temporary Competition Number, exhibitors will still be required to pay listing fees when entering events.
The request for a TCN will be self-serve; exhibitors will be directed to the CKC website to complete an online application and a TCN will be issued instantly. Exhibitors may also obtain a TCN by completing a printed application and submitting it to the CKC, or by contacting the Shows and Trials Division by telephone.
This initiative was passed by the Board and is effective July 1, 2018; however, the Temporary Competition Numbers will not be available until the new system is implemented. In the meantime, we will continue to provide updated communication regarding this matter.
The Temporary Competition Numbers will also allow results to be posted sooner. As the launch date for the new computer system approaches, and throughout the transition, CKC will be working with clubs and event secretaries, and will provide members with e-mail updates, and postings on ckc.ca and Facebook.
