GUIDELINES FOR STCA MEMBERS ATTENDING SPECIALTY SHOWS
THE SCOTTISH TERRIER CLUB OF AMERICA
PAWSITIVELY CLEAN SCOTS!
2014 GUIDELINES FOR STCA MEMBERS ATTENDING SPECIALTY SHOWS
In light of the anti-dog sentiment in our country today, and the wish that Scotties will be accepted in hotels as good canine citizens, the STCA has approved the following guidelines:
Don’t leave home without it! Traveling items should include the following when appropriate: Heavy duty plastic to place under all crates in order to protect the carpeting in room; newspapers, large garbage bags, paper towels, baggies for picking up solid waste, towels from home to wipe off paws. Don’t forget water, dog food, bowls, spoons, and can openers, as well as medication for diarrhea from your vet, in case your dog develops colitis due to the excitement and stress of the big weekend.
Crate your dogs! CRATES ARE REQUIRED for all guests traveling with dogs. All dogs must be crated at all times whether you are in or out of your room; dogs are not to be loose in a hotel room at any time. It is often helpful to leave the TV on at a low volume. Dogs will not respond to unfamiliar sounds if they don’t hear them. If your dog is prone to barking, you need to take the dog with you when you leave the hotel room. Dogs guilty of continuous barking may subject their owners to being removed from the hotel, with no refund for the room.
No dogs on the bed or furniture! Even the most trustworthy dog may be tempted to “mark” on hotel furniture.
Carry or crate! All dogs must be either carried or crated on a dolly through the hotel lobby to go outdoors for exercise and walks. There will be no exceptions to this rule.
Use Outdoor Exercise Areas Only! Do not exercise your dog in any area except in the clearly designated areas. Waste bags and deposit receptacles will be provided. Pick up solid waste immediately and dispose of it properly. The exercise areas must be kept clean
NO GROOMING OR BATHING IN ROOMS! No exceptions. Allgrooming must be done in a designated area at the show site. Hotel towels are NEVER to be used for the dogs or in the crates.
Bringing Puppies (litters) to a Specialty Weekend - If you MUST travel with puppies, they are to be crated. The activity level of puppies is high and they can easily move around an exercise pen. You are responsible for protecting your own puppies as well as the carpeting and furniture in your hotel room.\
All STCA Host Hotel rooms are subject to inspection during your hotel stay by an STCA member, as well as a hotel representative, to ensure that these and other specific hotel guidelines are being followed.STCA members who witness any infraction of these rules are expected to report these infractions to their Show Chairman or members of the Board. Any person found in violation of these Hotel rules will be subject to a Bench Show Committee Hearing.
It is understood that any member will be fully responsible for any and all fees charged by the hotel in the event this member is found guilty of improper behavior and/or of damage to hotel property.
Exemplary Manners Are The Only Manners Acceptable! When your Show Chairman informs the Host Hotel that we are responsible dog owners, he or she expects the membership to take this responsibility seriously. The STCA will excuse members who are irresponsible or disrespectful of hotel facilities during Specialty weekends.
AKC Rules for Attending Dog Shows Apply: STCA Show Chair and Hotel Staff work together to ensure that STCA members and guests with reserved rooms under the STCA block are subject to AKCAdditionally, AKC rules prohibit any un-entered dog at the show site (for Sweeps/Rally/Obedience – this means ballroom).
Stand up and be counted as a responsible dog owner and a proud STCA Member!
