Regarding the change of classes during EDS

The Norwegian Kennel Club would like to remind everyone of an important difference between the Norwegian Kennel Club show rules and the FCI show rules:

Once the entries for a show have closed, and the catalogue now has gone to print, transferring a dog from one class to another is not allowed.

We refer to the following segment of the FCI show rules:

"Once the entries for a show have closed it is not allowed to transfer a dog from one class to another after the catalogue is printed except if an administrative mistake was made by the Show Committee".

We hereby remind everybody that this also applies to dogs who have achieved the Norwegian champion title after entering the show, as well as dogs who have achieved working merits, who would both, according to our Norwegian Show rules, be obligated to change class.

The Norwegian Kennel Club will inform the ring personnel working during EDS regarding this, to avoid any mistakes or misunderstandings during the show.

The FCI show rules can be found here.
