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