Rules for the WD/X/Q:
Copies of all the Rules and Guidelines, procedures and entry form are
available for download on the ACC website at http://www.amchessieclub.org on
the WD/X/Q pages or on the 2016 National Show Specialty site. Also download
guidelines for Judges & Handlers and Suggested Line Procedures. 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. Call or email Matthew or Tim with any questions
before the event. Take time to read through the requirements and procedures in
advance. 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.
