RULES & REGULATIONS EUKANUBA WORLD CHALLENGE 2019 Birmingham March 7th 1. About the event The ‘Eukanuba World Challenge’ (“EWC”) is a dog competition taking place once a year. The event has been designed and developed by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) and Eukanuba to bring together the top winning dogs from around the world and celebrate the magnificence of pure breed dogs. The Eukanuba brand, owned by Spectrum Brands in Europe, is organizing the Eukanuba World Challenge during Crufts Dog Show, with the support of the FCI and the Kennel Club (UK). The following rules and regulations outline the 11th edition of the Eukanuba World Challenge requirements. The finals will take place on March 7th, 2019 in Birmingham/United Kingdom. Participation in the 11th edition of the Eukanuba World Challenge and all its accompanying events entails full agreement to the rules and regulations at hand. 2. How to enter 1. The National Kennel Club of the countries offered a slot is responsible for the selection of its representative dog. In the event that a National Kennel Club is not able to participate in the selection process, the FCI and the UK Kennel Club, in agreement with the Eukanuba, would take over the selection in a transparent way, either through a points system or a Best In Show win at the country’s most prestigious show. The participating dog must be registered in the National Kennel Club of the nominated country since, at least, January 1st 2017. It’s the national Kennel Club’s responsibility to ensure the requirements are duly fulfilled. 2. The same dog will only be allowed to represent his country twice maximum. In case a dog is selected for the 3rd time to represent the same country, the runner up will be invited to compete in the Eukanuba World Challenge. 3. The selection process and the details of the nominated dog have to be declared to the FCI and Eukanuba by the 30th of November 2018 latest. 4. In addition to the dogs selected by their national Kennel Clubs ‘Best in Show’ winners of major dog shows (namely Crufts 2018, World Dog Show 2018, FCI Europe section show 2018, FCI Americas and Caribbean section show 2018 and FCI Asia section show 2018,) are also offered a slot to compete in the 11th edition of the Eukanuba World Challenge.
