8 Page 8 The AKC has been busy making some revisions. The 1st is a Definition of Immediate Family Member Definition of Immediate Family in Obedience/Rally/Tracking/Agility The Board reviewed a request from the Companion Events staff to amend the definition of Immediate Family in the Regulations for Obedience, Rally, Tracking and Agility to be consistent with the change made to the Rules Applying to Dog Shows which was approved by the Board at the October 2018 Board meeting, effective December 1, Staff is seeking to have the same definition of immediate family in the Obedience Regulations, Rally Regulations, Tracking Regulations and Regulations for Agility Trials and Agility Course Test (ACT) to be consistent, with what is written in the Rules Applying to Dog Shows. There was discussion that this definition should be used across each AKC sport. Following a motion by Mr. Wooding, seconded by Dr. Davies, the Board VOTED (unanimously) to have the definition of Immediate Family approved for the Rules Applying to Dog Shows apply to all AKC Sports: Immediate Family: As used in these regulations, immediate family means one s spouse, domestic partner, parents, grandparents, children, grandchildren, siblings, mother-in-law, father-in-law, brothers in-law, sisters-in-law, daughters-in-law, and sons in-law; adopted, half, and step members are also included in immediate family. This next Revision is for the Conformation Ring. Although I know the Great Salt Lake Dog Training Club does not hold or host Conformation Shows, many of it s members exhibit in conformation and they may find this of interest. I borrowed this from the Vizsla Club of America that they sent to their membership. The Delegates at the December 2018 meeting approved a revision to Chapter 16 Section 1 of the Rules Applying to Dog Shows. This revision, which relates to the calculation of points for Best of Winners, is effective January 1, The revised rule provides a provision where a single point may be earned by the dog awarded Best of Winners if neither sex had sufficient dogs in competition to qualify for one point for its breed in the region the show was held. The revised paragraph 5 of Chapter 16 Section 1 will read as follows: The dog awarded the Best of Winners shall be credited with the number of points calculated for Winners Dog or Winners Bitch, whichever is greater. If no points are credited to the dog awarded Best of Winners, the regular class dogs of both sexes shall be counted in calculating championship points. A maximum of one championship point can be awarded when combining sexes for the Best of Winners point calculation. Continued on page 9

9 In Summary: The championship criteria remains unchanged The sexes may only be combined if there is not a point available in both sexes. The combination of animals has to be compared to the applicable point schedule to determine is a point was earned. To explain, when neither sex has sufficient entry for one point, Best of Winners will now earn one point if the sum of the class dogs and class bitches equals or exceeds the number required for one point in the breed for that sex in the region the show was held.

10 Great news for all those working towards the Rally Champion (RACH) Title AKC Rally Champion (RACH) Title The Rally Champion title (RACH) was established on November 1, After approximately one year in the titling progression, the title requirements were revised effective 2/1/19 and the new title requirements will be grandfathered back to November 1, With the requirements changing while the RACH title was in its infancy, it was the right thing to do to backdate the title requirements to the beginning of the titling program. However, AKC will recognize those that have been working so hard to achieve the title as it was originally established. In February 2019, all dog s records will be recalculated using the new title requirements. Prior to recalculating the records, AKC will publish a list of dogs who have achieved the RACH title from November 1, 2017 through and including January 31, The list will include the dog s name, breed, owner s name with their state, and the date they earned the RACH title under the original requirements. Any dog that earned the RACH title under the original requirements will receive a title certificate acknowledging their achievement. Once the records have been recalculated a new title certificate will be generated for any dogs that have achieved the title under the new RACH title requirements. AKC Rally event results processing normally takes 3-4 weeks from the date of the trial; and the trials are processed in date order. All event results are normally completed by the 15th of each month from the month prior. This means that in the middle to the third week of February 2019, the RACH title holders list will be published on the AKC website and then all dog s records will be recalculated for the new RACH requirements. New title certificates will be mailed to any dog that achieves the RACH title under the new requirements.
