Regulation

The JOAWC is an agility competition which is officially recognized by the FCI and is based on the FCI Agility regulations of 2018. The competition is open to all dogs, with or without pedigree. Each dog must have a record book issued by a National Member Organization of the FCI or a National Organization with a close relationship to the FCI. All National Member Organizations of the FCI or National Organizations with a close relationship to the FCI are invited to participate in this event.

 

All competitors must be citizens of the country which they represent, or they must have their main residence there. Handlers with dual nationality can register only for one country.

For all participating dogs a record book or a license must be presented, issued by their National Member Organization of the FCI or a National Organization with a close relationship to the FCI. All dogs must be 24 months or older on the day of the competition. Each handler can compete with max. 4 dogs.

 

Each National Organization has the right to nominate competitors and to send the entries to the organizer by May 31st, 2021 at the latest.

Team leaders of the countries will send an information email to the organizer after which they will receive a confirmation of registration and an entry form.

If countries decide to have a selection process, this must be open to all dogs (with or without pedigree).

 

Each country can enter maximum 28 dogs, with a maximum of 12 dogs in any category(1). The hosting country is entitled to enter an extra team in each height category.

The winners (same dog and handler) in "individual" (L – M - S) of the previous JOAWC may register to defend their title. These dogs will simply be added on to the number of dogs allowed for their country.

 

A country may exceed its quota and additional dogs beyond the maximum will go on the waiting list. After the closing date for entries the organizers may select dogs from the waiting list. Only dogs already on the waiting list will be entered by the organizers.

The names of the 3 or 4 dogs making up each team must be sent in before June 15th, 2021 at the latest. After this date the organizer will combine the remaining participants who are not a member of any team into new teams.

The entry fees are €30,00 for individual or team, €45,00 for both competitions.
