ANKC: PRESS RELEASE
.
AMENDMENTS TO BREED STANDARDS
.
The ANKC Ltd Board resolved at their October 2018 Board meeting for all breed standard amendments to be made annually in January each year.

Please note ANKC uses standards from either the country of development, the Kennel Club (UK), American Kennel Club (AKC) or the FCI. It must be pointed out that the majority of standards are not owned by Australia but by the country of origin or their governing body.

The important thing that members must realise is that a standard cannot be altered as they are the property of those organizations. However, it is possible to change the standard in its entirety to another version, providing it has the support of a large majority of owners in Australia.

As mentioned previously ANKC Ltd does not own a majority of the breed standards, so we are not able to make a change to a standard. Only the country or organisation that owns a standard may make changes and if they do so, then once they notify ANKC Ltd, these changes will be made annually in January. ANKC may not receive these notifications immediately but rather some months later from these organisations.

Notice to all Dogs NT Members re: Increased Fees

DogsNT has reviewed the costs involved with the grounds over the past 12 months and more. It is very clear that the charges do not cover the costs.

Power and Water have significantly increased their charges for both water and electricity, and additionally the prospective costs of light maintenance and replacement promises to be significant also.

To ensure the grounds are of suitable quality to run training classes and conduct shows and trials, these costs are necessary. Therefore we need to ensure the charges levied are sufficient to cover the usage.
The tasks that have been identified to maintain the grounds are as follows:

– water,
– lighting,
– cleaning,
– mowing,
– ground maintenance,
– sprinklers and
– general building maintenance.

As a result of the increases we have decided to split the charges to Ground Hire and Light Hire.
Ground Hire:  Previously the Ground hire was charged as a consolidated amount that attempted to ‘lump’ all costs into one basket. This was at a nominal rate, and charges for water and maintenance were never included. The increases have been absorbed to this date to the great detriment of DogsNT’s finances. It is not possible for this process to continue. The Ground Hire charge will address some of these charges and are expected to include the costs involved with:

1. Water charges
2. General maintenance of the Grounds
3. Occasional replacement of minor items
4. Preparation of grounds for Shows and Trials
5. Cleaning of Toilets and ‘demountable’ prior to shows and trials
    a. Note: the cleaning before and after events will become the responsibility of the affiliate that hires the facilities.

The Light hire is planned to cover costs involved with;

1. Costs of running the lights on a per hour basis
2. Replacement of component parts of the lights
     a. Hire of cherry picker/high lift boom
3. Overall replacement of the lights as end of life approaches.

Council is very appreciative of the assistance currently given to them with mowing, emptying rubbish bins and the other numerous jobs that are being done.

To investigate this further, DogsNT may be able to offset some of the costs for the grounds and lights against the charges for these services. If members would like to identify some of the offsets, Council can discuss and see if they can be implemented.

Council welcome any suggestions from members on any of these issues.

Kind Regards

Caroline Camilleri
Secretary DogsNT

 

Padlock Issues at the Front Gate

It has come to our attention that our members are incorrectly locking the main RASNT gate. This is not an isolated instance, but infact has happened 6 times in a 4 month period.

The inconvenience caused to RASNT staff is not tolerable and continued issues may lead to denial of use of that gate to DogsNT members.

There is a picture on the Shean Road gate of the correct and only procedure for locking that gate.

Changes to Scale of Fees
