AKC Regulation Regarding
Cell Phone Use at Hunt Tests
Date: July 19, 2012
Hunting Test Clubs
The Performance Events
Department would like to make Retriever Hunting Test Clubs aware
of a recent change to the Regulations.
Phones on the Line. Occasionally onlookers do not think about turning off their cell
phones or placing them on vibrate mode while in the vicinity of
the line. When birds are being thrown, the dog, handler and
judges are concentrating on the action. A cell phone going off
can be a distraction. The new Regulation is meant to caution
the gallery, enable the club to take action if this becomes an
on-going problem and provide judges guidance on how to handle
the situation. The change becomes effective August 1, 2012.
The following new language will appear as Section 24 in Chapter
1, Section 24. Cell Phones and Electronic Devices.
In order not to distract dogs,
handlers and judges from their work, cell phones, pagers or
other electronic devices which emit a sound shall be turned off
or set on vibrate mode when in the immediate vicinity of the
line or in the field.
Clubs should post signs if they
feel it is necessary. It is the job of the marshal to enforce
Out of courtesy to the working
dog, judges shall not accept calls or send messages while a dog
is under judgment.
A handler has the right to
appeal to the judges if he believes the sound from an electronic
device has interfered with his dog’s performance. It is the
decision of the judges to determine if the sound had a material
impact on the dog’s performance. If they believe meaningful
interference has occurred, they may allow the dog to be re-run
at a later time.
This regulation is not meant to
hinder the ability of the marshal to keep in contact with event
officials in order to expedite the running of the event; however
the marshal shall maintain consideration for the working dog and
you have any questions or comments, please e-mail
