REMINDER - SOMERSET INFORMATION EVENING 30 AUG

This is a reminder of the email sent on Thursday 24 August regarding the Information Evening being conducted by Somerset Regional Council on Wednesday 30 August. It is vitally important that as many Dogs Queensland members as possible attend because the Council will view us in a much better light if it is supported and it is more likely they will keep conditions more relaxed next year and beyond if their view is favourable now. The original email with details is shown below (note that the RSVP is no longer in use):

If you live in the Somerset Regional Council (SRC) area, we are delighted to extend an invitation to you. With the valuable support of Somerset Regional Council, we have organised an information evening that will be exclusive to our SRC resident members.

The information evening will be chaired by Mark Sheppard, Dogs Queensland's Government Liaison Officer.

This event will deliver important information about the recent changes to the Local Laws that affect the number of dogs that can now be kept on a property and whether those dogs can be bred from. We expect the formal presentation will take no more than 30 minutes, after which a Q&A session will be held to allow members to raise anything that requires clarification.

Hard copies of the dog keeping application form will be provided to those who attend as well as other useful documents that will assist members when completing their application to keep and/or breed from additional dogs.

The information evening will begin with a welcome and an acknowledgment of the support by the SRC that has been extended to Dogs Queensland and our members. SRC will be represented on the night by Cr Sean Choat (SRC Councillor) and Mr Chris Payne (Director of Corporate and Community Services).

It is critically important that we have a strong member turnout to this information evening – it will demonstrate that Dogs Queensland members are serious about strengthening the relationship between our two organisations – that strong relationship will stand us in good stead when we review the response to (and compliance with) the new local laws during the first half of 2018.

Meeting Date:                    Wednesday 30th August 2017

Time:                                  6:00pm for a start time of 6:30pm sharp

Venue:                               Esk Library (Simeon Lord Meeting Room), Heap Street, Esk.

Duration:                            We expect that the information evening will finish no later than 8:00pm

Catering:                            Light refreshments will be available at the conclusion of the event.

Dogs Queensland has approved a Junior Handlers Jumpers Competition at the All Dogs Sports Spectacular as an exhibition class. The Competition will be held during the lunch break in the Agility ring and handlers wishing to compete must complete the standard entry form on the day.

A set of rules has been drawn up and are listed below. The competition will be split into age groups from 7 to 18 years old. Here is an opportunity to get behind this initiative.

This is your chance to have some fun with Jumpers at Novice Level. Anyone with Juniors from 7 to 18 interested in Agility wishing to compete are welcome. There will be no entry fee but Juniors may only enter if their parents or grandparents are members of Dogs Queensland or are sponsored by a Dogs Queensland member. Just come and have a go and have some FUN. The dog may not necessarily be owned by the handler or be a novice dog.

Any questions, please email to the following address: dakotasmokie@gmail.com or 0438 621 663.

RULES FOR SPONSORED JUNIOR HANDLER:

Age – 7 to under 18 years, not a family member of a financial member.

●  Sponsored by a financial member who is present at or near the ring and accepts responsibility for supervising the Sponsored Junior Handler.

●  Application must be made in writing to Dogs Queensland by the sponsor and be accompanied by a written consent signed by the parent/s of the Sponsored Junior Handler.

By authorising and sponsoring a person under 18 years to handle a dog, the owner of the dog and the supervising adult shall:

● Warrant to Dogs Queensland, the Show Committee and all Officials conducting the Show, that the Sponsored Junior Handler is competent to handle the dog safely.

● Agree to accept full responsibility for the Sponsored Junior Handler and the dog for the duration of the exhibition.

Listen to the Judge’s instructions carefully, if unsure of the instruction, politely ask the Judge to repeat it.

Agility dogs can be lent to Junior Handlers with the owners and Parent/Guardians’ consent.

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE - REGISTRATION OF UNDESIRABLE COLOURS FOR FRENCH BULLDOGS & BRITISH BULLDOGS

Due to increased problems of incorrect colours of French Bulldog and British Bulldog litters being submitted to the office, the Dogs Queensland Board has recently moved to implement a new registration process which will assist in the protection of our members, puppy buyers and of our national pedigree database. The system will also ensure that all pups are correctly registered, with those of undesirable colour being placed on the Limited Register.

From 1 July 2017, all litters of French Bulldogs and British Bulldogs must be inspected by a panel of three appointed Judges who will verify the individual pup to its registered microchip and the litter registration paperwork. All litter registration paperwork must be lodged with the Dogs Queensland office prior to any inspections being allocated. You will be contacted by email when the litter is lodged. Inspection dates at Durack and other proposed locations will be set as needed, with members being advised of upcoming dates as they are allocated. As Queensland is a large State, we have recognised that some members will be unable to attend these assessments due to their location or simply due to the dates allocated. As an alternative to undertaking the inspection process, members can do one of two things:

1. A letter from a vet can be provided stating the colours of the puppies with microchip details for each pup as well as verification of the Sire and Dam in the vet’s letter; or

2. Copies of DNA parentage testing of the pups and full Canine Breed Profile results can be provided with the litter registration paperwork when it is submitted.

In circumstances where litters have been sold prior to the registrations being completed, the above processes will still apply.  Where pups have been sold interstate, inspections can be carried out by other State Kennel Associations, with inspection reports being submitted to Dogs Queensland from those States.

This process is a very new approach for Dogs Queensland and we expect that there may be some teething problems over the next month or two. We ask that members be patient with the implementation of this process and if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email the office.

EKKA 2017 ENTRANTS - LOCAL INTEREST STORIES

Each year, we endeavour to actively promote our members who have entered their dogs into the EKKA competitions. Our Public Relations company (PPR) have alerted us that the regional and local media are often keen to publish local interest stories.

If you have entered your dogs into the Canine Competition at the EKKA this year, we would like to hear from you. The story about your dog and the competitions at the EKKA could be of interest to your local media.


Please contact  Rob Harrison on rob@dogsqueensland.org.au ASAP and let us know.
