New AKC Regulation Regarding Cell Phone Use at Hunt Tests
Date: July 19, 2012
To: Retriever Hunting Test Clubs
The Performance Events Department would like to make Retriever Hunting Test Clubs aware of a recent change to the Regulations.
Cell Phones on the Line. Occasionally onlookers do not think about turning off their cell phones or placing them on vibrate mode while in the vicinity of the line. When birds are being thrown, the dog, handler and judges are concentrating on the action. A cell phone going off can be a distraction. The new Regulation is meant to caution the gallery, enable the club to take action if this becomes an on-going problem and provide judges guidance on how to handle the situation. The change becomes effective August 1, 2012. The following new language will appear as Section 24 in Chapter 1.
Chapter 1, Section 24. Cell Phones and Electronic Devices.
In order not to distract dogs, handlers and judges from their work, cell phones, pagers or other electronic devices which emit a sound shall be turned off or set on vibrate mode when in the immediate vicinity of the line or in the field.
Clubs should post signs if they feel it is necessary. It is the job of the marshal to enforce this regulation.
Out of courtesy to the working dog, judges shall not accept calls or send messages while a dog is under judgment.
A handler has the right to appeal to the judges if he believes the sound from an electronic device has interfered with his dog’s performance. It is the decision of the judges to determine if the sound had a material impact on the dog’s performance. If they believe meaningful interference has occurred, they may allow the dog to be re-run at a later time.
This regulation is not meant to hinder the ability of the marshal to keep in contact with event officials in order to expedite the running of the event; however the marshal shall maintain consideration for the working dog and handler.
