The cost of trips to Europe is quite expensive, especially with the current exchange rate of the Euro. Your assistance would be highly appreciated. The best way for both clubs and individuals to contribute financial support, is to send donations directly to the competitor. There is no contribution too small, collectively they all add up.

To All DVG Members,
Because of the rule in regards to microchips, I have contacted several companies and this seems to be the best price for the clubs on scanners and on chips.
I have had several emails requesting info on where to buy, and what kind of scanner to buy.
This is for information only and is not an endorsement of this product.
The American Kennel Club Companion Animal Recovery is also a non profit micro chipping and recovery service.
Yours in the Sport,
Ray Reid LV/LRO
AKC Companion Animal Recovery has special savings for DVG Clubs!
Please mention DVG when ordering a scanner and you get a discount of $25.00 which brings the price of the scanner down to $275.00. This scanner is the one to have for the clubs because it scans all of the microchips presently being sold including the ones in Europe with the ISO Standard.
ASK FOR THE PROSCAN 700
The Proscan 700 scans the 134.2 KHZ, 125 KHZ encrypted, 125 KHZ unencrypted, and 128 KHZ.
They also sell ISO Standard chips for $5.00 when purchasing a box of 25 or more.
Please mention that you have a DVG Club for this discount.

Effective 08-28-2012 the judges will inspect all tattoos and microchips on all dogs entered in the trial.
Effective 08-28-2012 the judges will inspect all tattoos and microchips on all dogs entered in the trial. If the judge is unable to read the tattoo or the microchip then the dog will not be admitted into the trial.
This rule went into effect 3 years ago and DVG Germany was not aware that we were not conducting the check on all dogs.
There will be no exceptions to this rule, so please notify all of your clubs immediately that they will need a scanner or the owner will need a scanner and if the tattoo or chip is not readable then the dog will be refused entry into the trial. If you have a dog where the tattoo is unreadable then you need to have the dog tattooed again or get a microchip inserted in your dog, and have the scorebook changed to reflect the chip.

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL
LV/DVG AMERICA MEMBERS REGARDING APPLICATIONS FOR SCOREBOOKS
As of April 1, 2011, scorebooks from DVG are no longer free. This decision was made at the DVG Board meeting held the last weekend in March. The charge for scorebooks for all DVG members is now $18.00 US. DVG America members may no longer fax their scorebook applications directly to the DVG office in Germany. All scorebook applications must be sent to LV Secretary, Sandi Purdy. Each application must be accompanied by a check in the amount of $18.00 made out to LV/DVG America. Sandi will fax the applications to the DVG office as soon as she receives them, noting on the application that the LV has been paid.
This change in procedure is effective immediately. Do not send any scorebook applications directly to the DVG office. Mail them with accompanying check in the amount of $18 as follows:
Sandi Purdy, Secretary
2101 Westmoreland Road
Red Oak, TX 75154
The DVG office has been asked to return any applications received after the posting of this notice on our website.
*Note to club presidents/membership officers: If a new joining member wishes to apply for a scorebook at the same time, the membership application and membership dues check and a separate scorebook application with a separate $18.00 check, payable to LV/DVG America, must be sent through your KG membership officer.

New Procedure for Trials:
Please note that, starting immediately, we do have a new procedure for hosting trials.
You will no longer receive the Trial Package (containing the trial paperwork) from Germany, but instead, Germany will send me a confirmation of the approved trial applications with their respective trial numbers, which I will pass on to the club/trial chairperson.
The club will be responsible to print out the Judge’s Trial Report and Judge’s Books (as needed), and then fill them out as usual. Please make sure you put the trial number (which I will provide) on the Trial Report form. As usual, you will need to provide 3 copies of the Judge’s Trial Report.
The forms are available on our DVG America Website under “DVG Forms”.
As always, please send me your trial applications as early as possible. If you have alternate dates please send me those as well, preferably on a separate piece of paper.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me via E-mail at Hartmut.Beckmann@qwest.com
