I believe that when the change occurs, the dog will have to be a veteran at age 8.

Chris, maybe you can put future changes and date of occurrence in Updates?

My understanding was that they were forced to go to veteran status at either 8 or 9 years old, then required to go to "skilled/vet" at either age 10 or 11

Not yet.

That is a future rule change that won't go into effect for quite awhile.

I just got home and am getting caught up.   Should be able to do a few updates to the update page today :)

No wonder the grapevine is so inaccurate.   ;D   I do not remember anything about having to go to skilled at any age, but that doesn't mean anything, so I will be looking for your update, Chris!

I have heard through the grapevine, that Double Digit dogs will need to take the height reduction for Veterans (of course), but that they will also be required to take the second height reduction for Skilled. So a 16" proficient double digit dog will have to jump 8" at Champs -- true? My dog will have just become a Double Digit a few weeks before Champs so I haven't yet done the second height reduction -- I know in time that will be required at, what was it, age 11?

Thanks,
Lynn Saunders

Those rules take effect in 2014, not 2012.

So there is a second requirement to go to skilled after going to vet at 8 years old?  If so, what age are they required to go to the second height reduction?
