Veteran Dogs
« on: April 19, 2016, 06:56:15 AM »
I was told that starting in April, 2016, veteran dogs would have different standard course times or would be competing only against other veterans.   I sure hope this is true. 

Thanks for any info.

All dogs have more time in Weavers, Jumpers and Touch N Go as of April, 2016.  In June of 2016, Veteran dogs can enter all non-jumping classes as a Veteran dog.

Great change!!  Will this require another software update?  If so, any idea on when the update will be available?  We have a June trial...

thanks for bringing up the question Susan....this is indeed great news, esp for those of us with old dogs that still want to get out there and work (a little).....

What is the status of this change?  I'm working on my October trial premium and would like to include the vet dog option for the non-jumping classes.  I don't see this rule change reflected in any of the fall trial premiums I am seeing.

It was changed in July.  It is possible those premiums were approved before the update.  Every club I have seen has allowed those changes.

Just want to confirm because I think our entry form that was just approved is wrong. 

We should have vet/vet handler for all classes?

Does that include Barrelers & X Hoopers?

Is Junior Handler allowed in all classes?

yes to all if you have updated your software to the current version.

That must have slipped through while I was traveling, sorry about that!
