We will have two AKC Field
Representatives on site to get permanent height cards. Gail Storm and Diane
Craig will be available to measure your dogs all three days of the agility
From the American Kennel Club web site:
All dogs competing in agility must have a valid AKC
Official Jump Height Card or form. If the dog does not have a valid Jump Height
Card or form it must be measured by a VMO, AKC Field Representative or by the
judge(s) of record before it runs. The following is the procedure for dogs that
have not been measured by a VMO or Field Rep:
If a VMO or Field Rep. is available, the dog
should be measured before it runs. This will start the process toward getting
a dog an AKC Jump Height Card.
If a VMO or Field Rep. can not measure the dog
before it runs, then the judge(s) of record needs to measure the dog prior to
running. This measurement will only be effective for that set of trials.
Dogs will no longer need to be measured by a judge
of record if the handler has a valid height card or valid yellow height card
form(s) in their possession.
Official measurements after a dog
runs: If a VMO or Field Rep. measures a dog after it runs and this
measurement changes the jump height it is in, the measurement is effective the
next day and for all future trials. If this occurs, keep in mind the following:
If this measurement would move the dog to a higher
jump height in the Regular Classes, this would also happen on the next day or
trial in which the dog is entered. If the height would move the dog to a lower
jump height, the dog would only be allowed to move down into that jump height
at the next trial in which the dog is entered if that trial has not closed.
If the dog is entered in the Preferred Classes,
and the measurement from the VMO or AKC Field Rep. would change the jump
height either up or down, this change is effective immediately for all trials
in which the dog is entered regardless of whether or not the trial has met the
closing date for entries.
