Return of entry fees: After an applicant has been successful in the draw for places in a Stake, or as a reserve has accepted an offer of a run, the applicant, if the entry has not been taken up, may be liable for the full entry fee, except where a competitor has qualified out of Novice Stakes or qualified for a Championship after the entries have closed, or on production of a veterinary certificate, or where the dog drawn to run is withdrawn more than 7 days prior to the stake. Un-presented cheques will be destroyed unless otherwise requested.

Results of the draw will be emailed to the address provided, unless a SAE is sent with the entry. Where dogs are owned in joint partnership, two dogs may be entered equally in the draw providing each has a different handler. Handlers entering more than one dog, in the event of over-subscription, need to state preference in the draw. Substitution of dogs is not allowed

Liability: All persons attending these trials do so at their own risk. Neither the ISCGB nor the Hosts will accept liability for accident, injury or illness, damage or loss to any person, dogs or property, whatsoever.

No unauthorised recording/equipment will be allowed on the FT ground without the permission of the organising society.

Welfare of Dogs: An exhibitor (or competitor) whose dog is entered at a Kennel Club licensed event should take all reasonable steps to ensure the needs of their dog(s) are met, and should not knowingly put their dogs’ health and welfare at risk by any action, default, omission or otherwise. A breach of this Regulation may be referred to the General Committee for disciplinary action under Kennel Club Rules and Regulations.

Dogs in Cars on Hot Days: Your dog is vulnerable and AT RISK if left in a vehicle in high temperatures and even on days considered as slightly warm. Please take care of your dog. If your dog is found to be at risk forcible entry to your vehicle may be necessary without liability for any damage caused.
