I read on a premium that an HRC club is charging an additional $10, per day, to any handler/or per dog who doesn't register by a certain date. I was told this is a common practice with some HRC clubs, by the clubs President himself, although he stated he didn't agree with the practice.
It's news to me. Wouldn't you think that would discourage walk-ins, in addition to pro's adding dogs because others have scratched? Or would they be exempt? I found the additional charge confusing. How unwelcome it would make a last minute handler feel. With today's gas prices, and the overall expense of motels, and meals. they are shooting themselves in the foot, literally.
