Changing the Rules
When Ivan was lure coursing I had to argue with a judge that Ivan, a non-sight hound, was indeed allowed to wear a collar. I even had participants telling me I was wrong. Thankfully I had the rules on my phone and the judge stopped arguing immediately when he realized I wasn't gonna just shrug my shoulders and give up.
I have Maiya signed up for the CGC at the end of the month. Her loose leash walking isn't that hot, but I figured I'd give it a go and work on it between now and then. According to the rules, a slip collar made of chain is acceptable. Of course the e-mail I rec'd from the organization said flat buckle ONLY. I want to use a choke chain and have e-mailed the organization.
I'm fine with people wanting to use a positive approach to training, but if the rules say I can use XYZ, then guess what, I'm allowed to use XYZ. I find it irritating that AKC representatives make up or don't know their own rules.
Anyone else encounter this?
I've run into similar problems showing horses.
Some judges get up on their high horse and will tell you to your face if you use X bit you'll be disqualified... When you politely show the the equine Canada rules regarding it, I've been told 'I don't care what the rule book says if you enter a class with it I will excuse you '
I lost my flat class to that judge even though the other rider posted to the wrong diagonal....
Sometimes you just have to play by their rules :(
By chain slip collar could they mean martingale?
when Roxy got her CGC she wore a choke chain collar. No one questioned me.
