    Good news Cantrell--you can now use the lead as a choke collar~~ BRILLIANT!!
    The AKC is not that good at updating their web site, but they are good at getting the rules changes out to clubs. The last changes of which I am aware came out in late July and took effect on September 1. This was the clarification on the walkup in SH and the requirement for judges to keep their sheets. I haven't seen anything from them since that.

    Judges wouldn't make up their own rules would they?

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    It would have had to been included in the addendum with the walk up. Three clubs I know of shared the AKCs rule Change on walk up. Can't imagine they wouldn't have contacted clubs for such a significant rule such as no flat collars in JH.

    I don't know about that. I learned about the Sr walk up rule changes by reading it here on RTF, didn't recieve anything from AKC as a club.

    Just got the packet for our test this weekend, and it still has the printing of the 2012 rule book. With the $400-500 we send them per test (dog fees, test fee, etc.) it sure would be nice to get a rule book that's only two or three changes behind.

    I'd have a very hard time believing this is true...
