Junior Handlers

By agreeing, I (we) certify that Junior Handlers do not now, and will not at any time, act as an agent/handler for pay while continuing to compete in Junior Showmanship.

Entries for Junior Handlers should be sure to enter the Junior Handler number into the entry form. Should you not have your Junior Handler number, it may be obtained from the American Kennel Club (919) 816-3776.

I (we) understand that an entry fee is like an airplane ticket or hotel reservation in that the reservation is made and a fee is paid, but it is my (our) responsibility to show up. If someone does not show up for their flight, the airplane leaves without them. If I (we) do not show up for the event after entering the trial, the event will go on without me (us) and I (we) are not entitled to a refund. Further, since this is a competition, if I (we) do not win or place in the competition or decide that the trial is not exactly to my (our) liking, much like a bumpy ride in the airplane, I (we) will have still participated in the competition and having done so, will have gotten that for which I (we) have paid and will not be entitled to a refund.

I (we) agree to pay all charges incurred at this Website as a part of Fees and if a refund is expected for any reason I (we) will first seek such refunds from the event secretary or club hosting the event, even if such refund is created by my (our) use of browser "back" and "refresh" functions which I (we) have been here warned not to use.

I (we) understand that if, for any reason, the Event Secretary does not comply with my (our) legitimate refund request I (we) may ask directly for the refund. If the refund is due according to this agreement and these agreed upon terms, then a refund will be issued within 30 days after the end of the trial. I (we) understand that all unlawful charge-backs will be prosecuted to the full extent of law and unfair charge-backs will be billed to me (us) in the exact same manner as a bounced check would be and will be treated as such. I (we) also understand and agree that non-payment for entry fees and/or charge back fees, if deemed to be in violation of this agreement, will be dutifully reported to the AKC and disciplinary action will be requested which may effect my (our) ability to show dogs in the future.


I (we) understand that in addition to the entry fees charged by the event holding club, a $3 per first entry and $2 per subsequent entry for the same dog in the same credit card transaction in each event will be added as the administration fee for and such fee is non-refundable.
