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.
Call Joyce Prapuolenis at 919-816-3808

We have two new apprentice judges that have applied to become judges. They are:
These names were sent out to the judges for approval on 10-01-2012. The judges have been given 30 days for any negative comments of which there were none. The only comments that came to me were positive comments.
If the membership has any comments on these two judge apprentices please send them to Ray Reid by 12-31-2012 at DVGJudge@msn.com
On Wednesday, October 17, 2012, the LV Board voted to rescind the motion of July 1, 2012, to have the membership vote on withdrawing from DVG Germany and becoming an independent organization.

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 Treasurer, Anne Conroy. Each application must be accompanied by a check in the amount of $18.00 made out to LV/DVG America. Anne 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:
Anne Conroy, Treasurer
10 East Oaks Road
Saint Paul, Mn 55127
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

AWDF Scorebook policy
Motion passed May 16, 2013 (annual meeting)
For further information, contact your AWDF member club.
- Effective immediately, AWDF member clubs can issue scorebooks to any breed of dog owned by their members and list the dog’s breed on the scorebook provided that proof of FCI recognized registration accompanies the application. Scorebook application processes used by each member club will be followed.
- Dogs for which no FCI recognized registration is submitted can receive a scorebook from any AWDF organization but the dog will be listed as a mix.
- Breeds not recognized by the FCI (for example, American Bulldog) must have their scorebooks issued by their breed organization or the dog will be listed as a mix.
- Clubs that offer the opportunity to have a non-FCI registered dog’s breed listed in the scorebook via a working privilege listing (for example Malinois with the AWMA) must have the scorebook issued by that club.
- Effective March 21, 2013, USCA eliminated the requirement for scorebooks to be certified by USCA, thus also removing scorebook certification fees. USCA will accept scorebooks from all AWDF, WUSV, or FCI organizations.
- Effective with the 2014 AWDF Championship, the requirement to use an AWDF scorebook is removed. This was done to accommodate the use of foreign scorebooks issued by FCI organizations and therefore complies with the FCI regulation of one scorebook per dog.
