The WDX will run at completion of the WD.

WD/X/Q Rules:  All ACC members should have received a copy of the Rules and Guidelines after the updates of 2008 or with their new membership.  You can download additional copies below or from the ACC Website.  Please read through these rules before the day of the test.  The judges will go over the basic rules with everyone quickly before the start of the stake and you can ask a few questions then if needed.  Email or call Jane Pappler  609-859-3570 ahead of time if you need help understanding any of the procedures or have questions regarding the entry form. Please take time to read through the requirements and procedures in advance of the tests.  This will help you and your dog to be successful and not fail due to handler error. One important rule to remember is you cannot send your dog until you hear the Judge call your number....
