      It was RESOLVED that ANKC purchase a BOAS chamber.

      Contributions received so far from Dogs SA, Dogs NSW, Dogs West and the French Bulldog Club of NSW will fund the purchase.

      2. RSPCA – IPO Training

      It was RESOLVED that ANKC forward a response to the RSPCA regarding IPO Training which would reconfirm the current ANKC Policy on Attack Training.

      3. Country Inspection Process

      It was RESOLVED that ANKC Ltd accepts the system for Country Inspections based on an initial breed verification, thence an inspection of submitted information by Compliance Investigative Panel members.

      4. Kangal Shepherd Dog

      The Board agreed to defer this matter until the FCI recognise the Kangal Shepherd Dog as a separate breed to the Anatolian Shepherd Dog.

      5. FCI Recognised Breeds

      As a requirement of the agreement entered into with the FCI ANKC is bound to register and recognize all the breeds which are recognised by the FCI unless prevented to do so by national governmental or state laws. Pedigrees from any FCI member or contract partner, with a minimum of 3 complete generations registered in studbooks and/or appendixes to the stud books recognised by the FCI, are considered to be sufficient to be recognised by the ANKC.

      It was agreed to add the following note on the Breed Standards page of the ANKC website:

      “Breed Standards for FCI breeds which are not in Australia can be accessed from the FCI website breed standards page at: http://www.fci.be/en/Nomenclature

      6. * ANKC Ltd Regulations Part 6 – The Register & Registration: Amendments

      It was RESOLVED that Regulations Part 6 – The Register & Registration is amended by the inclusion of the following new Clause 3.11 (c):

      c. The progeny of all British Bulldogs, French Bulldogs, Pugs and Boston Terriers conceived by the use of semen imported into Australia and registered on the Main Register, must be physically assessed. Puppies are to be assessed by 3 licenced judges for that breed to ascertain if the puppy complies with the ANKC Ltd Breed Standard especially the ‘Coat’ and ‘Colour‘ descriptions. The assessment must be undertaken after the puppy has been microchipped and prior to registration. If their combined opinions are that the puppy does not comply with those descriptions, and there are no special conditions for Registration of Certain Breeds, then the puppy is to be registered on the Limited Register and ‘Marked not eligible to be moved to the Main Register’. If their combined opinions are that the puppy does comply with the ANKC Ltd Breed Standard then the puppies may be registered on the Main Register. Puppies assessed must be able to be individually identified by way of microchip.

      It was RESOLVED that Regulations Part 6 – The Register & Registration is amended by the inclusion of new Section 7.6 to read as follows:

      7.6          OVERSEAS TITLES
      7.6.1      No overseas titles will be endorsed on a dog’s registration certificate unless the title was achieved while the dog was physically present in the country which awarded the title.

    • ANKC Press Release - Clarification of Agility Rule 4.3 - Height Card

      PRESS RELEASE

      Reference is made to Rule 4.3 - Height Card in the updated Rules for the Conduct of Agility Trials which reads:

      4.3 Height Card

      Prior to a dog competing in a trial, an Official Height Card, signed by TWO (ANKC Ltd) Agility Judges or other persons approved by the Canine Control specifying the height or the height category of the dog must be obtained. The height of the dog is to be measured at the highest point of the withers no more than two months before that trial. The Height Card is valid for the life of the dog if they are over 2 years old or the dog is measured at the 600 Height Category. If the dog is under 2 years old a temporary height card will be issued and the dog will be required to be remeasured when the dog is 2 years of age. A permanent Height Card would then be issued.

      Any pass cards issued to the dog during the period of the temporary height card will remain valid.

      The National Agility Committee has confirmed the following interpretation which shall be binding in accordance with the rules:

      If a dog that has been measured is not 2 years old as of 1 January 2018 (with the exception of dogs in the 600 height category), then it will be required to be re-measured when it reaches the age of 2 years of age.
