Question: Under Stud Dog/Brood Bitch it states "none of the dogs or bitches making up the entry judged first in the class will be eligible to compete for Best of Breed by virtue of having won this class." All three of the dogs/bitches I want to put in stud dog /get are finished, so if I win the stud dog class, I cannot put any of the three dogs/bitches into Best of Breed on Saturday correct?

 

Answer:  I agree that the wording is confusing. They can be entered in best of breed. What the paragraph is trying to say is that if the stud dog wins the class that doesn't make any non-champion get eligible to show in best of breed. The words that clued me in were "by virtue of having won this class". So the "judged first" means judged and given first place, not judged prior to best of breed. In the stud dog paragraph above it says the get must be entered in a regular class and includes best of breed in the statement.

Question: Are dogs allowed at the annual banquet?

 

Answer: The banquet isn't set up for dogs. Food service is formal. Before there's generally a cash bar and people milling around visiting and perusing the silent auction items.

Question: When will the COF (Consolidated Order Form) be available?

 

Answer: The COF was replaced starting in 2018 with our NS Cardishop online store. In this way we can add items as they are ready. You can order items as you are ready to pay for them or wait and do one grand order at the end.

Question: I'm trying to pay for grooming, but cannot. Is the password required, the password for the CWCCA website or for PayPal? It will take neither. I don't get it!


HELP!!!!!

 

Answer:  Logging in is not required. Accounts and passwords for the National Specialty website are neither your PayPal password nor (necessarily) the same as your member site password. This is a separate website as it has accounts for non-members as well as members.

You may wish to create an account in order to be able to see your orders later on.

Question: I am unable to pay an extra donation online. The place to put the amount shows $1.00 and I can't change it to the proper amount due.

 

Answer: The price cannot be changed on an individual item. The work-around is to put the amount you wish to donate in the field that is generally quantity (whole dollars only).

Question:  I may have missed it in the Cardishop, but I would like to purchase a marked catalog.

 

Answer: We no longer offer the marked catalog for several reasons. Not only is it difficult to find a volunteer to do so, but in the past there was a problem with incorrect marking.

The full catalog markings will be available on the website after the specialty.  I also hope that someone will be able to get the dry-erase board to the specialty this year in which case we will be able to mark each class so that people in attendance can mark their catalogs from it.

Question: Are CGC/TDI/Trick dog open to other breeds or is it Cardigans only

 

Answer: All events at the National Specialty are for Cardigans only unless they are advertised as "All Breed" on the website and premium list (e.g. some years the Herding Tests and Trial). 

Correction: According to TDI rules testing must be open to all breeds.

Question: (Roberts Centre 2020) On page 20 of the Rally/Obedience Premium List it states "No Soft Sided Crates in Royal Canin Ring and Eukanuba Field". Is this correct? Almost all of the performance people I know use soft crates at the agility/obedience/rally trials.

 

Answer: We have double-checked with Roberts Centre management.  We are allowed to use soft-sided crates for Monday and Tuesday day-crating.

Welcome to the world of Cardis!

Question: Will the logo on the JAG apparel be higher on the shirts as opposed to across the belly as shown?

Answer: The images did not come from the vendor, they were created by the NS CardiShop manager using photoshop.  Please don't hold me to size or location of the logo, the images are just for an example. Yes, I do imagine that they will be higher on the actual items. If time permits I will attempt to fix the images.
