The Minutes of the meeting held on 21.11.2017 were formally adopted.


3.1 Amendments to Club Constitutions (Exco 10-2017 item 3.1)

Saint Bernard Association of Northern Gauteng (Exco 06-2017 item 9.2.1, Exco 07-2017 item 3.9)

Northern Tshwane Kennel Club

Natal Utility Breeds Club

Western Province Bull Terrier Club

To be carried forward to Fedco 06-2018 agenda.

3.2 Exhibit incorrectly entered in Champions Class (Exco 10-2017 item, Exco 11-2017 item 3.3)

See previous discussions on the following dog:

Breed: Border Collie

Reg. No: ZA003043B16

Name of Dog: Giftnell It'samagicparty

Owned by Miss O Orsmond

At the Exco 11-2017, the Secretary was instructed to write to the registered owner requesting a statement advising which shows she did give authorisation for the dog to be entered.

In the meantime, everything concerning this dog, its Champion status and the fine imposed, is to be placed ‘on hold’ until this information is received.

Exco also to look at the wording of Schedule 3 Regulation 33 - Fines and Penalties.

An email was sent on 11.01.2018 and any reply will be tabled.

The office checked the awards won at other shows from 1st June to 15th September to confirm that the dog was not entered in the Champions Class. The above dog was entered in the Champions Class at NTKC (Show 1) 13 May 2017 winning BOB and BIG. This show was not used towards Champion Status.

We requested entry forms from the 5 Clubs on the Champion Application form. Unfortunately only two Clubs still had forms (attached to agenda).

At the date of the Exco meeting three show entry forms were available for scrutiny. These appeared to be the same form photocopied for the three shows, each with the name of the Club and Show date being omitted. Apparently this was a common occurrence with show entries.

RJ felt that it should be brought to the attention of exhibitors that, in many cases, the regulations were not being followed in this regard.

After discussion the following was agreed:

the BOB and BiG awards won at the NTKC Show held on 13 May 2017 be with withdrawn and the succeeding dogs advanced.

As it was not possible to determine whose signature was on each of the forms, that clarification of this should be requested from the registered owner in order to establish if these entries were authorised.

Carry forward to next agenda.

3.3 Schedule 3 Regulation 33 Fines and Penalties (Exco 11-17 item 3.3)

Arising from the previous item (3.2) NdP advised that there may be a need to review the wording, which currently reads:


33.1 If a dog is entered in a class for which it is ineligible and it is not withdrawn from competition therein before such class is judged, such dog shall be disqualified and the exhibitor may be fined at the discretion of the Executive Committee.

33.2 The Executive Committee shall have power to impose a fine upon any exhibitor who makes an error in his entry form or infringes any provision of these Regulations.

33.3 In the event of any fine not being paid within the time stipulated by the Executive Committee, the exhibitor may, at the discretion of the Executive Committee, be dealt with as if a complaint brought under Kennel Union Disciplinary Rules, Rule 2 (Schedule 1), had been lodged against him and proved to the satisfaction of the Executive Committee.

NdP believed that the above Regulation needed to be amended as it just gives the Exco the discretion to impose a fine without making provision for the ‘accused’ person to make any submissions in their defence.

At this point LW raised the matter of the Exco holding a ‘face to face’ meeting to deal with this and other matters. The intention is that this meeting will take place in Gauteng without any KUSA office staff present. A suitable date in April 2018 is to be decided.

To be carried forward to next agenda.


4.1 Office Report

The Office Report was discussed and approved.


Financial Report for November and December 2017

After discussion the November report was approved.

The December report was not available and will be tabled at the February meeting.



Case 06-2015

Civil case settled.

Hearing to be scheduled early in 2018.

Date still to be finalised.


Another complaint has been received and the SCI is in communication with the Complainant.



5.2.1 Applications for Second Championship Show

LW reported that the Federal Council requested that Exco apply more stringent parameters. Discussion ensued on the Fedco’s requirements (as per Fedco 12-17 Minutes – Non-Championship Shows to be held, with the exception of Eastern Cape and Free State), before considering the following applications: TKC Kennel Club - 14 October 2018 - TKC Breed/TKC Kennel Club - 13 October 2019 – Breed

The above Club is requesting to hold second Championship Shows in 2018 and 2019.

The reason for applying for 2019 now is in order to contract judges in sufficient time.


The Club noticed that the entries for TKC in October were extremely good in comparison to some of the other all breed shows that have taken place without International Judges and when you consider the amount of approximately R28000.00 paid to KUSA, it would appear that it is in all our interests to have a majority International Judges.

Also they do not have a back to back show with another Club. It stands alone with the three shows. A Non-Championship Show licence for 28.01.2018 was granted.

Affiliation, AGM & Audited Accounts are all up to date as are previous show returns. No outstanding

Fees. July Open Show levies outstanding. [Colleen finding for us.]

The application to hold a 2nd Show in 2018 was approved,

(1) subject to receipt of outstanding levies


(2) subject to TKC agreeing that in granting TKC a second championship show the Club must take cognisance of the other clubs that hold shows on that day and ensure that they work together to the mutual benefit to all. Preplanning must take place to ensure that all clubs shows run smoothly without unnecessary delays.

The 2019 application to be tabled at the February Exco Meeting once TKC has agreed to the conditions in paragraph (2) above.

To be carried forward to next agenda. Northern Free State Bull Terrier Club - 14 April 2018 - Breed

The above Club is requesting to hold a second Championship Show on the 14th April 2018.

There does not appear to be any conflicting events.

Motivation: "The Northern Free State Bull Terrier Club would like to hold two Championship Shows in the calendar Year 2018. The Club would like to replace the existing scheduled Open Show with a Championship Show. In the past the open show was badly attended with an average of 10 dogs present of the day. The second Championship show will attract more exhibitors (about 30 dogs present on the day) because there will be a specialist Judge present and the possibility to obtain Championship points towards the title of Champion for their animals will attract more people. Although there is some extra administrative work, not a great deal of extra manpower is required."

Affiliation, AGM & Audited Accounts are all up to date as are previous show returns. No outstanding


Approved. Exco would like the Club to also hold a Non-Championship Show to educate Learner Judges.) Victory Toy dog Club - 26th October 2018

The above Club would like to hold a second Championship Show on the 26th October 2018. This will be on the same day as its first Championship Show.


In the past Open shows have run at a significant loss. We are not able to support another loss as in the past.

There has been a decline in exhibitors both local and ‘Out of Town’.

Due to our current financial situation and the rising costs of running a show it would not be financially feasible for us to share an overseas judge. We feel that an overseas judge would be an additional attraction as well as being able to enter two shows on the same day.

An income from two shows on the same day would enable us to use one local judge and to share an overseas judge which we have been offered.

Our committee has after much discussion decided that the way forward for our ‘Club” is to hold a 2nd Championship show.

Taking the above factors into consideration we would like to apply for a second Championship Show licence.

We trust that this application will meet your favourable decision.

Affiliation, AGM & Audited Accounts are all up to date as are previous show returns. No outstanding


Deferred. Office to enquire if the Club intends to hold a Non-Championship Show.

To be carried forward to next agenda. Eastern Districts Kennel Club – Championship Show – 15 July 2018 – Breed

The above Club would like to hold a second Championship show on the 15th July 2018. This is on the same weekend as their 1st Championship Show together with other Group and Specialist Clubs’ shows.


Eastern Districts Kennel Club would like to apply to hold two championship shows on the weekend of 14 and 15 July 2018 and, in the following years on that same weekend. It will make it easier for us to afford foreign judges and we intend to share these with all the specialist and group clubs on our weekend. With the extra income and extra CCs on offer on our weekend, we intend to build the club and assist Goldfields Show Grounds to afford the upkeep of the grounds. We think this is in the interest of dogdom as a whole in South Africa.

Affiliation, AGM & Audited Accounts are all up to date as are previous show returns. No outstanding fees.

Deferred pending confirmation whether or not the Club will be holding a Non-Championship Show, also confirmation that this Club has fulfilled its undertaking to make a donation to the Goldfields Supporters Club.

5.2.2 Other Club Matters Schedule 3 Reg 14 – Exclusion of Dogs & Reg 19.8

The form to be completed by Clubs has been circulated to Clubs and published on website, together with explanatory notes.

Exco (NdP) to review Schedule 3 Regulation 14 to cover, inter alia, multi-show weekends.

Proposed change in wording of Schedule 3 Reg 14 - 1st paragraph, last sentence.

“ …a written report supported by [ sworn ] statements of any witnesses and all other evidence available…”

People are finding it very difficult to do sworn statements within 7 days, when submitting documentation for Dog Aggression. We now have a document for completion to make the process easier for all concerned. Under Reg 19 it only calls for a written statement, so this would also bring everything in line.

If approved, it will need to be placed on the June 2018 Fedco.

Deferred for discussion at ‘face to face’ meeting. Dog Aggression Incident – Pretoria Kennel Club Championship Show 19.11.2017

The following dog has been issued with a temporary exclusion order for showing aggression towards the Judge:

St Bernard dog ARIEL EX MOEISA SUPERIORE Reg No ZA001091C17owned and handed by Miss JH Kuyler.

Representations on behalf of the dog circulated to Exco on 22.01.2018.

Cognisance was taken of the owner’s letter and agreed that, as is usual in these cases, she be advised that the above dog should successfully undergo a CGC (Bronze) and be evaluated by three Judges before the exclusion order is lifted. Natal Sporting Hound Club Championship Show – 30 June 2017

It was reported that Miss D. Hansen stewarded for the Judge on the day. When the time came for Whippets to be shown, she stopped stewarding and showed her own Whippets under the Judge she had been stewarding for. There was no steward in the ring at that time as it was only her own Whippets present, so when Judging was completed Miss Hansen returned back to the ring to carry on Stewarding for the finals.

Schedule 3, Reg 7.11:

“No steward may handle a dog on the same day as he/she is officiating before a Judge for whom he was stewarding unless requested by the Judge to exhibit the entry.”

A response from Mrs Hanson was circulated and after discussion it was agreed that she be sent a formal letter advising her to observe the regulations in the future. No formal complaint was lodged and different versions of events were given in the letters received.

Further agreed that the above and other Regulations be discussed at the proposed ‘face to face’ meeting. Jacaranda City Kennel Club Championship Show – 18th November 2017

Schedule 3, Reg 16.5

"No dog shall be allowed into the judging ring after having been called three (3) times by the Ring Steward and marked absent."

Judging of dogs already called ‘absent’.

Report of events at Jacaranda Kennel Club from 18/11/2017 at Goldfields Show Grounds given by Mr Andrew Wright.

It appears that the dog was allowed in the ring by the substitute Show Manager, who is also a Judge. The exhibitor had been delayed by a motor vehicle accident and the Show Manager approached the ring steward and the judge to ask if the puppy bitch, a stand-alone exhibit, could be judged. The judge agreed.

After discussion it was agreed that letters be sent to Mr A Wright and Mr A Austin, the Substitute Show Manager, advising them that they should know better. The letter is to be copied to the JKC.

Further agreed that this regulation should be reviewed at the ‘face to face’ meeting as there appeared to be no consequence to contravening it, and other regulations.

5.2.3 KUSA CLASSIC 2018 – KUSA IPO Meisterschaft – Dobermann Club of the Cape – 19/20 May 2018

A request has been received from the KZN Dog Jumping and Agility Sub-Committee to run DJ & Ag 1/2 June 2018

Other events on the same weekend include Field Trials in Gauteng and Ob, Dj in Windhoek.

Agreed. 2018 – KUSA National Working Trials (Classic), TT & WUD

The only other WT on this weekend is Cape Handlers Open Show in Cape Town and there is no objection from this Club.


Following the November meeting a letter was also sent to TWTA advising that Exco was not happy with the projected loss of R7400 and asking them to look at either decreasing expenses or increasing income.

To be carried forward to next agenda.

10.3 Breed specific education presentations. DR advised that presentations were being received from the FCI and asked if these could be linked to the Breed Standards on the KUSA website.
