Notice To All Clubs Re: Approval Of Event Date Applications & Judging Panel Applications

The Event Planning Department has been working diligently to approve Event Date Applications and Judging Panel Applications and we thank you for your support as we work through this issue.

In an effort to provide clubs with more assistance regarding the advertising of their events, a notice will be forwarded to clubs regarding the following allowances:
  • Clubs are required to submit an Event Date Applications and Judging Panel Applications to CKC for approval. For events to be held in 2022 clubs will be permitted to advertise their dates as “Pending CKC Approval” prior to receiving approval (regardless of whether or not they are priority dates) for both the event date applications and the judging panel applications.
  • This exception does not apply to a second set (or more) of conformation show dates. Under these circumstances, the Event Date Application must be approved prior to advertising.
  • There are no exceptions with regard to distance between events and/or time and distance with regard to judging assignments for all event types.
Below is a reminder of the exception motions in place for events held in 2022 only:
  • Priority dates will not become null and void if a club is not able to hold an event on its priority dates. Regardless of whether or not the club held an official event on its priority dates in 2021.
  • When a club is not able to hold its event(s) on its priority dates, an application for an alternate event date must be made on the form provided and received at Head Office not less than 90 days prior to the date on which the event is to be held. 
  • If a club that holds priority dates is not able to hold events on its priority dates, other clubs will not be permitted to apply to hold events on priority dates that belong to another club without the club’s written permission from at least 2 club officers (ie: President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer)
  • A club can only apply to hold the same number of sets of dates and the same number of Conformation Shows that it held prior to the year 2020.
  • A club can apply to hold a second set of conformation shows provided that the dates comply with Chapter VI, Shows & Trials, Section N, Conformation Events, Sub Section 8, Second Set of Conformation Show Dates, of the Policy & Procedures, as well as the motions noted above.
We have added more staff and made internal changes that we are confident will help us to work through the backlog more efficiently. We thank you in advance for the support of assisting our clubs and their inquiries, and by encouraging clubs to submit their applications more than 90 days prior to their events.

In addition, any club that intends on hiring foreign judges should forward their judging panel well in advance as it does require additional time to approve their foreign qualifications. Lastly, please encourage clubs to use Canuck Dogs as their resource with regard to advertising their events and posting CKC information.
