If an affiliate does not own the necessary equipment, the affiliate will need to ensure, in advance, that it will be available; for example, by hiring it. Some equipment is available for hire from Dogs NSW for trials conducted at The Bill Spilstead Complex for Canine Affairs; further equipment or equipment for other venues may be available for hire from Blacktown Kennel & Training Club.

Dogs NSW Conformation Judges Training Committee will be conducting a Practical Examination in May 2015.  One of the requirements for the Trainees to undertake the Examination is to have judged a specified number of dogs.  As there is not currently a Conformation Judges Education Program in progress, the only opportunity for Trainees to judge dogs is at Shows.
