Just a note to remind everyone in the mid Atlantic area that the Quaker City DPC WAE will be held on September 23rd. Ray Carlisle will be the evaluator this year. I hope that some of the people here (local to my area) will be able to come out. It is really a neat thing to watch - totally different than going to a dog show. Much more relaxed - except for me as I am totally busy the whole time :) If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. There are several of us on this forum who have knowledge of WAE's.

The location is at a wonderful rural gun club - could not be better. A big covered pavilion is next to the field and there is inside crating available. The gun club will have a food concession.

We welcome spectators - I might even put you to work as a volunteer on the field :)

In addition, we hold a cardio clinic during the WAE. Please see our website for more information. The Cardio clinic fills up quick and is limited to Dobermans only. The cost is $160.

Great info and local too. :) Sounds like a good time.

Can I assume a rescued dog (Takira) with no known history or AKC registration that I know of would not be eligible to participate in this?

Thanks

You can apply with the AKC for an ILP # that would allow you to participate. The form is on the AKC's website http://www.akc.org/reg/ilpex.cfm?SEARCH_BUTTON.X=15\&SEARCH_BUTTON.Y=13. You'll need photos of the dog and proof of spay/neuter to get an ILP #.

Get an ILP # from the AKC - you can get info on the AKC website. We had a rescue come through last year and she is one of the few who passed :). I don't know if you would be able to get one in time for this years event.....not sure how long it takes. You are certainly welcome to come and watch and bring your dog.

How would you provide proof of spay on a rescue dog that was already spayed when you got her?
Good question. I'm assuming (but don't know for sure) that you would get something from your vet? Maybe it is spelled out on the paperwork what is acceptable.

It is an EXCELLENT deal. I had Velma done 2 years ago when she was just shy of 2 years old. I plan on having her done again. Louise will only be 19 months old so I will wait till next year to have her done for the first time. Two of our active club members are vet techs and they do the assisting for the vet who does the clinic. It really runs like an assembly line so they are able to do about 25 dogs in a day. That is how the price can be so great. The club gets a very small amount of that money and since the WAE usually runs at a loss, it really helps keep the day a break even event.

This same vet works out of the Emergency/specialist clinic about 30 minutes from me. To have him do the same thing at the clinic is about $450.

I went to the site you linked and it does say proof from a vet. I noticed they charge $35 for an ILP. I think it only cost $8 to get Cole's AKC registration.

most rescues don't come with any kind of pedigree info, so there would be no way to get akc papers on them based on their actual name. An ILP# is what you need to get when you have a rescue. Personally, I think that $35 is a pretty good deal to be able to then compete in all the akc events except for breed. Lots of rescues go on to successful careers in obedience/rally/agility ....etc.....
I also see some pretty neat registered names given to rescues. If the dog came from a purebreed rescue organization that name is sometimes even used in the new registered name. Kim on this list does that with her rescues. She could probably shed some info on getting the ILP# as she has done it.

No, I don't want akc papers on her. I just wondered why the price difference.
It's registering a dog whether its an ILP or AKC.

For $8 Cole could have competed in AKC events, but it would cost $35 for Peaches.

Hey, can a 3 legged dog show in conformation? :) J/K

Because registering a puppy really only requires a few keystrokes on a computer. Issuing an ILP means someone has to look at photos to determine if the dog resembles a purebred of that breed besides inputting information....more time means higher overhead involved.

and unfortunately, a three legged dog cant compete in anything with the AKC, except the CGC (and it doesnt need an ILP for that).

and yes, my rescues have had their ILP's, or names pending when they died.

speaking of, i have to send rah's....

While we're on the topic of registering, I have a question..
Chi is registered with the JKC (Japanese Kennel Club) -
When we come back to the US will I be able to apply for AKC papers, would she then be dual registered? Or would it be just easier to apply for an ILP, since we're not going to be in the breed ring anyway?

Not even a WAE or obedience?

Here's the rules for registering foreign born dogs http://www.akc.org/rules/special_registry_services.cfm

I think you'll just need a registered copy of her pedigree from the JKC and she'll need a microchip or tattoo. Maybe one of the Canadian folks who dual register will chime in. I know when I considered showing Cy in Canada, I had to have a registered copy of his AKC pedigree to send in to register him in Canada.

Thanks for the information about the ILP# I am going to start the process with AKC for this.

Also thanks for the show information I am going to try and make sure my schedule is clear for that day and make the ride up there.

Thanks

I don't know about the WAE, and I am finding out for you from the powers that be as it makes me curious also. I will post the answer when I find out.

All dogs have to be sound for AKC obedience and I think 3 legs qualifies as fundimentally unsound.
