Rule change regarding tracking systems in Squirrel Hunts effective January 1 2019


I General Information 

k) Hand held tracking systems may be carried and used during hunts.  Systems that require a mobile device for viewing can only be used via an iPad/ipad mini or similar tablet.  No cell phone active or inactive can be used to operated devices.  No training collars, dummy trainers, devices capable of stimulation or tone or altered collars may be used at any time. Inspections of collars should take place by the cast majority or non-hunting judge prior to starting the hunt. Anyone found to be using their tracking device to tree their dog will be scratched after a cast vote, or by a non-hunting judge.   If a handler deems their dog to be in danger, they may ask for a cast vote for a time out after all dogs are treed or handled. If a majority is not reached the handler may withdraw then handle the dog due to safety concerns.  If the handler has not returned to cast with the dog within the 30-minutes the dog will be scratched. Only 1 time out will be allowed per dog during the hunt.  Violation of these rules may result in disciplinary actions which will result in a band from competing in NKC sanctioned events.

 
NKC Breed Clarification
We have been made aware of breeders crossing Walker and other types of coon dog's with curs & feist and then registering these dogs as feists or curs. All club's should go by breed standards when taking new registrations.  A Club's has the right to refuse entries of a dog if they to not meet the breed standard even if they are NKC registered.  The NKC will look at each case that is reported to the NKC office.

The National Kennel Club would like to announce the appointment of
our Squirrel Dog Division's Board of Directors:
