Hi all

as most of you are aware, as of July the neuter classes will be able to gain points towards their neuter championship.

Since the schedules are now out or July and august- has anyone noticed any kennel clus offering this class???

I know it will take a while with the scedules needing to be in long before the date of the event (about 6 months) but how can we encourage kennel clubs to host this class?

I for one am really keen to support this class and have quite a few friends waiting also! I am sure once the ball starts rolling it will be well supported.

Any ideas???

Personally, I agree that Neuter classes and Championships are a great idea for involving beautiful non-breeding dogs and their owners in the show scene but I 've also noticed a reluctance amongst show organisers to offer these classes. Why? It is my suspicion that pure snobbery is the reason. It's seems to me that organisers find it too much of an effort to offer "non-traditional" neuter classes. Owners of beautiful neuters are going to have to push hard before the neuter classes are a regular, normal offering.

More a case of so badly supported when they where offered.All fine & dandy to say its snobbery but where are all these people when they where offered??

In my state the only ones whom seem to enter where people with retired veterans who figured they where going to the show anyway so they entered them.

But the difference between then and now is people actually have something to show for entering the neuter class - they can now go to a show each weekend with the exact same intention as the rest of us- to gain championship (albeit for a Neuter title) points and thus become officially titled as an Australian Neuter Champion :rofl:

I don't think it's a case of snobbery, but as SP said, why would we support the classes when there was nothing to show for it. Now that there is a title attainable, then trial secretaries and committee members need to put behind them that it was *previosuly* not supported and at least try now that there is a new title. If nobody offers the class, then how are we to enter/ support this new title... or better yet - what's the point of it :eek:

I encourage everyone who IS interested in this class to let their trial secretaries know that it WOULD be supported if offered. Unless told we won't get our classes. Lets be a bit pro-active ;).

Even call those secretaries holding shows for Dec onwards and ask if they are going to be holding a neuter class.

Unless we show interest, then the previous comment of 'not well supported before' will hold strong. We'll assume nobody holds them, and stop looking for those classes, and then when they ARE being offered, we won't enter :rofl:.
