- In the interest of fair play and a sporting competition, once a dog has been entered into the pointscore competition, it will not be removed unless there are extenuating circumstances. (Please be certain that you wish to enter for the full year before completing the application).
- Only the highest eligible award per exhibit per show will be counted for each competition section.
- It is up to the individual to check their points tally for correctness. Any errors or omissions should be immediately sent to us for correction.
- Pointscore Integrity and submitting incorrect results
The integrity of the pointscore relies greatly on the honesty of the person submitting the results. Therefore in order to protect the integrity of the competition, if a result has been submitted that awards more points to a dog, breeder or handler (a "Competitor") than they would otherwise have been entitled to, we will at our absolute discretion, disqualify the result.
Ensure you read and understand the pointscore results guide before submitting any result.
Once a "Competitor" has 2 disqualified results recorded, we reserve the right to disqualify the "Competitor" entirely from this (and future) year's competition.
- If a dog or owner (including part owners) is suspended by any ANKC affiliated State Canine Association, we will disqualify the owner and/or dog from the competition.
- If a dog has awards withdrawn by any ANKC affiliated State Canine Association, we will also remove the withdrawn results from the dog's tally.
- Whilst all due care is taken, Dogz Online Pty Ltd (and/or the pointscore partners) assumes no liability or responsibility for any errors or omissions that may occur in this competition. Points are tallied as per results received.
- We reserve the right to alter these rules and/or terms and conditions at any time without individual notice to you. The decisions of Dogz Online Pty Ltd (and/or the pointscore partners) (including interpretation of the rules) are final and no correspondence will be entered into.
- By submitting an entry to the point score competition, you indicate your acceptance of these rules and conditions.
