Exhibitors undertake to observe these regulations. Only breeds recognised or provisionally recognised by FCI can be entered, as well as breeds recognized nationally in Denmark and are pedigree registered by Dansk Kennel Klub. In the latter case the breeds must be found in a special section in the show catalogue under the heading “breeds not recognised by FCI”.
All dogs must be registered in a kennel organisations approved by FCI.
All dogs are shown at the exhibitor’s own account and risk. The organizer cannot be held liable for damages caused by dogs or exhibitors.
When participating in a show or any competition or trial in DKK, a dog cannot be – or have been - treated with drugs that moderate or rouse its temperament, or affect its ability to perform.
There are several reasons that performance-enhancing drugs or treatments are not allowed prior to participating in trials or competitions.
According to Danish legislation, tail docking, ear cropping and removal of dewclaws with the purpose of changing the dog's appearance are forbidden.
All ear cropped dogs born after 30 June 2009 cannot be shown regardless of the dog's country of birth. Cropped dogs born before 1 July 2009 can only be shown if the dog has been born in a country where ear cropping is permitted. (Danish bred ear cropped dogs born after 1 January 1985 cannot be shown).
It may be possible to procure further information at the show secretariat regarding the state of affairs of ear cropping in other FCI countries. Tail docked dogs born after 1 June 1996 cannot be shown, regardless of the dog's country of birth. The prohibition also includes dogs that have been docked for veterinary reasons, irrespective of whether a veterinary certificate is presented.
The following breeds are excepted from the tail docking prohibition:
The dog must be vaccinated against distemper and parvo. For dogs up to 24 months, the vaccination has to be less than one year old. For older dogs the vaccination must not be more than four years. First time vaccinations must be done at least fourteen days before the show date. A positive titer value, showing protection of the dog against distemper and parvovirus will be equal to the vaccination.
Foreign dogs must also be vaccinated against rabies according to Danish legislation.
Documentation for vaccination must be brought to the show. Puppies under the age of 3 months must not be brought to the show.
The dogs that are shown must be in good mental and physical health condition and not show any signs of illness. Moreover, we refer to the provisions of the show regulations of the DKK. If a dog has caught a defect, which can be certified by a veterinary certificate, the veterinary certificate must be brought to the show. Please use the DKK veterinary certificate. The exhibitor pays for any treatment undertaken by the show veterinarian. The exhibitor must, however, have approved the treatment in advance
