The Hon.Tanya Davies MP, State Member for Mulgoa is campaigning for a complete upgrade of Mamre Road from the M4 to Elizabeth Drive. This will include two lanes each way, upgraded intersections, a shared footpath, and a wide central median to reduce collisions.

At its recent meeting, the DOGS NSW Board of Directors resolved that DOGS NSW adopt the following rules in regard to Height Cards for Obedience & Rally Obedience Dogs:

(a) A dog must obtain an official NSW Height Card, signed by two ANKC Ltd Obedience or Agility Judges, specifying the height of the dog, before being eligible to enter an Open, Advanced Rally A or higher classes.

(b) The height of the dog must be measured at the highest point of the withers using an ANKC Ltd approved measuring device on a hard level surface.  The dog may be measured three times, with the measurement to be recorded being the lowest height for the benefit of the dog.  The height measurement is to be recorded on the Height Card which will be signed by the two measuring Judges.

(c) If the dog is less than eighteen months of age at the time of measuring, the Height Card will be provisional only and the dog must be re-measured once it is eighteen months of age.

(d) The Height Card issued after the dog has reached eighteen months of age will remain valid for the life of the dog.

(e) A Judge may request to re-measure a dog at a Trial if they are of the clear opinion the height recorded in the catalogue appears inappropriate for that dog.

The DOGS NSW Show Committee received multiple responses in regard to the draft motion, for which they thank all members and clubs who took the time to respond. 

Notwithstanding that, the Committee has agreed that a regulation regarding those who interact with the Judges not being permitted to show, should not be from DOGS NSW, however, should be discussed within each Club’s own committee and membership to agree on what would be appropriately and ethically sound for their own shows.
