Please Note Closing Date

Australian National Kennel Council Ltd

The ANKC Ltd Board resolved at the October 2016 Board meeting that the implementation date of 1 January 2017 for the following motion passed at the May 2016 Board meeting be deferred until 1 July 2017 pending receipt of submissions from National Breed Councils and Breed Clubs and further consideration by the ANKC Ltd Board:

“It was unanimously RESOLVED on the motion of P Frost/E Gunter that the Board endorses the National Breed Standards Coordination Group’s recommendation subject to the following highlighted changes:

“Effective from 1 January 2017 except in the case where National Breed Councils or Breed Clubs have nominated certain Colours not to be placed on the Main register as per regulations Part 6, 6.2.4 Special Conditions for Registration of Certain Breeds (Amended 04/15 EAP)”

Prior to 1 July 2017 only acceptable colours noted in the breed standards will be eligible for registration on the Main Register.

All Breed Clubs that have breeds which do not have a National Breed Council as well as Individual Members who have breeds which do not have a National Breed Council or Breed Club are requested to forward to their Member Body office a listing of what colours for their specific breed are not to be placed on the Main Register and to provide evidence for this request by no later than COB 31 March 2017. [Note: The evidence provided can be on the grounds other than health reasons.]

[NOTE: This release supersedes our release issued in August 2016.]

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
