    associate register dog
    Yeah but unless you've gone through the process of joining up with an ANKC affiliate - "associate register" doesn't mean anything. My mum's an associate member of her golf club - all that means is she can't vote not that she doesn't have a pedigree.

    My understanding is that you only have an associate registered dog you cant vote on any ANKC issues. I dont know where you stand if you only have a sporting registered dog (one that is on recognised registers outside the ANKC system). I have all 3 -main and limited, sporting and associate dogs so have always been sent voting papers.

    My first associate dogs were both from ANKC registered breeders out of Aust CH parents, but in those days they didnt register their pet quality dogs so the dogs were considered mutts by the ANKC.

    I cant say I give it much thought really. My sporting registered dogs dont have to be sterilised which is handy when they are boys and you want to wait till they are mature (22 mths) before sterilisation but still compete with them.

    The majority of dogs I do agility etc with are sterilised regardless of what register they are on anyway. The few that are not are generally also good quality show dogs or sheepdogs with good bloodlines or top class sport dogs in their field on the main or sporting registers.

    Kalacreek - can you post some links to the ADAA clubs around WA
    - what area are you in RubyGloom?

    I tried googling for ADAA and WA and didn't get anything useful. Lots of QLD stuff.

    PS - like this post if you want to split the agility training bit off the bottom and move it to the training thread...

    Dogs West is here: DogsWest - Home

    Yes you have to join as a full member if you want your associate dog to enter events, it means you are covered by insurance and your dog is eligible to acheive awards and titles etc.

    An "associate dog" doesn't mean the same thing as an associate membership.

    From the above site, in regard to participation in sanctioned events:

    Let us start at the beginning. Before you can compete in a trial, you MUST be a member of the Canine Association of WA. Download the membership application from this website or contact the office and one will be posted to you. If your dog is not registered (i.e. purebred unregistered or cross bred) you will need to complete an "Application to Register an Associate Dog" to register your dog with the Association.

    Once you become a member of the CAWA you will receive a membership card which will indicate your membership number. Keep this card in a safe place. You will also the latest Canine News, which has all the details for scheduled trials, and some blank entry forms. The Canine News is a bi-monthly publication and will be posted out to you every January, March, May, July, September and November.

    Go to this link WA Results and on the right hand side down the bottom under dog links you will see links to various clubs. Eden Hills and Gosnells host ADAA events. However it doenst matter what club you go to. Most people over here over here do both ADAA and ANKC events and the judges are often the same. It is a fairly small close knit dog trialing community.

    The clubs all run classes for beginners and you certainly dont have to trial your dog if you dont want to. You only need to join ANKC if you want to trial your dogs in their events.

    RubyGloom -
    you're going to have to get your dog desexed to join DogsWest if you want to compete in ANKC trials
    but not if you join a club that hosts ADAA trials.

    Unless the dog is on the main or limited registers. I am not sure we have established this yet. Rubygloom is your dog from a registered breeder?

    True, but hard to imagine since she hasn't said so and she let the dog breed way too young so completely unfamiliar with the ANKC code of ethics. Surely would be expelled.

    no offense guys but you are really confusing me. I just want to have a bit of fun with her and teach her some things, its ok if we don't compete. Maybe just fun things to start with.

    She came from a Labrador Breeder, but now that you mention it I don't think she was registered. As I said before I had no idea she was pregnant the first time around. only discovered that she was a week before pups came. Vets detected nothing in the ultrasounds. Plus we had another female at the time and she wasn't subject to any male dogs. It was purely an accident. She will be spayed at maturity.
