International Race- and coursingregulations.

FCI regulations for International Sighthound races and Lure coursing Events. 

Via This link http://fci.be/medias/LEV-REG-en-8860.pdf you will come to the FCI international regulations for coursing and running. From Chapter 3 page 19 it is about the coursing. Chapter 5.1 page 32 contains the requirements for the title “Champion International de Course” and at 5.2 you can find the requirements for the title “FCI Beauty and Performance Champion”/”Champion international de Beauté et Performance” (C.I.B.P.).

 

There are additional requirements for France Per 1-1-2016. To be able to run in France and to take part in the coursings, a few additional things have to be arranged from 1-1-2016 onwards. One must fill out a form (Formulaire_enregistrement_etranger) and mail it together with a copy of the pedigree to the SCC (French Kennel Club), this is for the registration of the dog (s) and must be done per dog; This is once. Furthermore there is a form (Assurance a 2016) with which one requests the insurance for the dog (s) per year, there can be several dogs on 1 form. Because it is an insurance, there are costs associated with it. The first dog is free, every next dog costs €3,-and there comes €10,-administration costs.  This form is to be sent to a French (ren-coursing) club that regulates everything. Normally this is done to the club where you want to run the first game this year. This club will receive French licences, with which one can participate in racing and/or coursing all year round.

If the veterinarian determines that the health of the dog is endangered if the animal participates even longer in the Ren or coursing, the jury is obliged to exclude a dog from further participation. The organizer prepares a vet for the competition. The vet must be present throughout the race and ready to intervene. It is recommended that the explanations concerning the veterinarian’s task as defined in annex 7.4 be observed. Dogs, under 2 years and over 6 years of age, must be checked by the vet for the second course if the distance exceeds 600 metres. The wearing of a muzzle is obligatory for all varieties. Collars must be removed before the start. 1.3 Approval, determination of dates, tariffs 1.3.1 Indication “international Greyhound Stadium running” and the designation “International windhondencoursing” may be used only for competitions, for which the date and place at the national Organisation of the country in which the competition takes place are requested and for which the FCI/CdL has given its consent. 1.3.2 refusal of an application the application for a competition may be F.C.I. by the Be refused if: 1.

All dogs must be remeasured before the start of the Ren/coursingseizoen following the completion of the second year of life. The result of this measurement is final, must be quoted in the license and must be respected by all national organisations. If the owner does not offer his dog for this (second) measurement, the validity of the license expires and must be withdrawn by the responsible national Organisation. The measuring of the shoulder height can only be carried out and confirmed by a commission appointed by the National organisation of the country in which the owner has his legal residence, and only by qualified Which should follow the following procedure: 1. The dog must be properly identified. 2. The age of the dog to be measured must meet the above-stated. 3. The dog must be calm when measured. The animal must be of sufficient size on a plane and a rough platform or table. The dog must be put down with natural corners of the legs and with the head in natural position (the throat at roughly the same height as the shoulder points). The surroundings must be quiet, without an excessive number of people/dogs. 4. After measurements 1, 3 and 5, the dog must be walked through the space. The dog is brought by his owner or by someone else designated by the owner. The measuring person may correct the position of the dog provided that the owner/handler gives permission to do so. 5. The measurement can be performed when the dog is in correct position. The dog is measured on the withers or on the thorn protrusion of the first vertebra, if it is higher than the schouderblad buds. Should it be impossible to put the dog in correct position, the measurement must be stopped and declared invalid. If the measurement is stopped at the owner’s/handler’s initiative then he/she accepts that the result of the measurement is stated as being above the limit. 6. The measuring port is of rigid material and can be equipped with an electronic sensor. It has two legs so the size is accurate and easy to set. 7. The national organisation appoints the members of the Measuring Committee and a secretary for the fixation of the results. The Measuring Committee and the Secretary are not allowed to measure their own dog (s) or their breeding products. 8. The measuring committee consists of two meters and a secretary for reporting. The meters measure in turns. The Secretary has the supervision and notes the results. 9. The dog must be measured six times. The most common size is quoted on the dog’s paper. If, after six measurement, 3 results above and 3 results are obtained below the maximum permissible size, a seventh measurement must be carried out and recorded as a definitive result. 10.

On a CACIL ren or coursing for all Whippets and Italian greyhounds registered for that race. 2. At a FCI championship, under the supervision of the CdL delegate. Because this control takes place under unusual circumstances-at a racecourse or Coursingterrein and in the presence of many other dogs-a tolerance of 1 centimeter must be allowed. The starting license of a dog that is measured at a control measurement higher than the limit for that variety and as mentioned in 1.4.2 Sub. 8 or 9, is immediately invalid. The national organisation of the country where the owner has his/her legal domicile is obliged to change the starting license according to the result of the control measurement. 1.5.2 Protest regarding The measure if a national organisation submits a protest regarding the The size of a Whippet or an Italian wind dog, at the F.C.I. A new additional measurement must be performed. The protesting national organization paid 500 euro to the F.C.I. To make the protest valid. If the protest is right, this amount will be paid back and the national organisation of the owner of the dog concerned must pay the protest amount. The measurement takes place in the country where the owner is legally established, and is carried out by a delegate of the CdL of another country and designated by the President of the CdL. The CdL delegate must measure according to the procedure described in section 1.5. The responsible national organisation organises the protest measurement within three months in consultation with the appropriate CdL delegate. If the owner of the dog refuses to allow the dog to participate in the protest measure, the dog’s license is immediately withdrawn. The dog can only recover its licence after a remeasurement (according to the protest against the measure) has been carried out. If the national organisation does not meet its obligations, they will lose the guarantee granted by the FCI on dates for Cacil competitions during the two-year period. The license of the dog concerned will automatically be void from the first day following the expiry of the 3-month period. The dog can only recover his license after the remeasurement has been performed. The result of the protest measurement is reported to all CdL members and listed in the dog’s license as well as in the database. The result of the protest measurement is final and cannot be disputed again by means of a subsequent protest against the measure. The costs of the designated CdL delegate and the owner of the dog concerned shall be reimbursed up to a maximum of 500 euro by: a. The national organization that carried out the measurement in case the protest is confirmed B. The deposit in case the protest is rejected. In the event that there is money left, it is returned to the national organisation that submitted the protest. 1.5.3 Database The results of all measurements shall be forwarded to the Chairman and Secretary of the CdL. The Secretary of the CdL keeps a database with all the results of each measurement. The database contains results of all (control) measurements done by the national organisations. This database must be seen prior to a monitoring measurement. Dogs, which are already registered in this database after they are subject to a control measurement during a FCI Championship (1.5.1 Sub. 2), will not be measured again.

Their decisions are binding in case of discussion or doubt. In the case of technical problems, they must consult the Coursingleider. Before the start of the competition, the Keur masters ensure that the requirements in § 3.2, § 3.3, § 3.4 and § 3.6 are met and that the health of the dogs is ensured. International competitions are assessed by at least 2 Judge Masters who must have a licence. At competitions where a CACIL is believed, one of the Keur masters must come from another FCI country. The conditions for inviting foreign jurors are described in Appendix 7.6. 3.1.2 Coursingleider The Coursingleider must be a specialist with experience. He/she is responsible for the technical execution and the entire organisation of the competition. The Coursingleider regulates all technical and organisational matters. He/she takes decisions at technical or organisational bottlenecks during the competition. 3.1.3 The starter at the start checks the starter: 1. The owner/handler keeps his dog quiet and takes him to the start on time. 2. The dogs are in the right starting position. 3. The muzzles, which must comply with a model approved by the FCI (Appendix 7.3), are well applied. 4.

The position of the Hare machine must be such that the Hare technician has a good overview of the entire course. The Hare technician must draw the hare at a correct distance for the dogs. Preferably a distance of 10 to 15 meters. This requires good craftsmanship and excludes an inexperienced Hare technician. The Hare technician, together with the Keur Masters, has to ensure a good size and quality of the hare (see also 3.6) throughout the entire competition. 3.1.5 restrictions for officials officials, whose dogs participate in the competition, should not exercise their function during the course of the race (as mixed-run word) or the sex (if run separately), they must be replaced. 3.2 Directives concerning Terrain, soil conditions and trail length 3.2.1 Terrain A large pasture approaches the most ideal coursingterrein. A slightly undulating or slightly hilly terrain is also ideal. Some clumps or some trees are desired, provided they do not pose a danger to the dogs. 3.2.2 Soil level The field must not be too smooth and must not contain any stones or holes. Some natural obstacles are strongly desired but not obligatory. They must be clearly visible from the perspective of the dogs at 30 meters distance, especially in the case of reductions in the soil.

The route must be changed for the second circulation. It is advisable to further disassemble the bobbins and make larger curves for the larger varieties compared to the route for the smaller races. Both courses must contain curves and straight pieces so that the dogs can show their coursingcapaciteiten. The line of the hare must be placed in such a way that the dogs cannot get caught or injured. The use of a closed system (on the ground running with an endless line) must be clearly stated in the deregistration. 3.5 The start 3.5.1 Rendekken the dogs run in pairs and are released at the same time. The one runs with a red deck, the other with a white deck. Coloured collars Instead of decks are not allowed. text, characters or other attributes that are typical are not allowed on the decks. For cover description, see Appendix 7.2. 3.5.2 Odd number of dogs enrolled in an odd number of registered dogs, if possible, the organizer will try to find an accompanying dog to avoid a solo course. A non-participating dog with license is acceptable. 3.6 Coursingmateriaal The organizer is obliged to convince himself that all the Coursingmateriaal is in perfect condition so that it works without problems. The Coursingleider must ensure good quality for sufficient spare material so that the race can be finished smoothly. The recommended spare material for important components must be at least 100% per course. The hare mechanism must meet the following requirements:IMG_3315 1. Be able to quickly boost speed, 2. Respond directly to change of speed, 3. Have sufficient spare capacity, 4. The hare can be made of light coloured hazenvel or plastic strips. The length must not be less than 40 cm. Throughout the race. 5. The bobbins should not be painted in a light colour and not shine. 3.7 Approving judges must assess the dogs on the basis of five criteria (see below). The maximum number of points per criterion is 20 points. Greyhounds that have not received at least 50% of the maximum score in the first circulation may not participate in the second circulation. Other assessment systems are not allowed on international competitions. Two overflows have to be walked, the points of both outlets are added together. If there is no possibility for a second circulation, the result is determined by the points obtained in the first circulation. If two or more participating dogs have reached an equal number of points (assuming two walking outlets), the dog with the higher number of points in the second circulation in the final result gets the higher placement. Should this result still be the same, then the higher number of points in the second circulation should be looked at in the upper position, in the following order: 3.7.1 agility, then 3.7.2 speed, then 3.7.3 condition, then 3.7.4 follow, then 3.7.5 Enthusiasm. 3.7.1 Agility The agility of a greyhound can be assessed to: 1. His rapid twists, provoked by the movements of the Hare, 2. The way he takes the obstacles, 3. Haas packing, particularly by a sliding catching of the prey, 4. Dogs that are able to perform directional changes quickly and efficiently are especially evident in the curves. Dogs that run without unnecessary movements in their thrust (often low, powerful and with a lot of power in each step). 3.7.2 speed the speed needed to catch a prey. Shown by the speed at which land is herded when dogs at the start react to the surprising departure of the Hare. During the entire course the dog has to show speed and especially when he grabs the hare. Speed is evident through the pace of movements and progress of the dog. The judge should reward the dog who runs low, stretches well and chases the hare. Because the time is not measured to measure the speed, the way in which the dog behaves is of significance for the assessment of its ability. By the Judge masters the absolute speed is not assessed because the speed of a greyhound has to be compared with that of his opponents. When assessing the speed should be taken into account the breed characteristics. Not all races reach the top speeds of others. A “Go-bye” can be made when the dog in second position is doing its utmost and catches up with his opponent. Overtaking always takes place between two consecutive bobbins. 3.7.3 conditIMG_1453ion A good condition of a greyhound can be noticed when he ends his race in good physical condition. It is a combination of physical and mental skills. A dog that runs the whole course offensively and does not show signs of fatigue, not even at the end, has a good condition. Follow 3.7.4 is the ability of a dog to follow the hare and always 100% attention to the hare. Good tracking is characterized by: 1. Following the hare during the whole course and trying to catch the hare. React quickly to the movements of the hare. 2. The exact following of the hare and the immediate attempt to make a “leap to kill” when he comes close to the hare. 3. Actively and offensively tries to catch the hare during the entire course. 4. Go behind the hare without questioning where the hare goes (course wise run). 3.7.5. Enthusiasm this is the spirit drift during the chase, regardless of the soil condition (rough or with obstacles) and whatever occurs as it is going through in curves, falling, and losing sight of the hare. The enthusiasm of a greyhound can be seen: 1. At the start: The dog is completely concentrated, the eyes of the dog are focused exclusively on the hare. 2. At the chase of the Hare: the sustained chase of the hare, forcing the Turner to ramp up the speed of the hare to avoid premature capture of the hare, the dog jumps neatly and without hesitation about an obstacle, he goes Hotfix back when the Hare is left behind. 3. When packing the Hare: At full speed, if the dog takes the hare already sliding, when attempting to catch the hare even if the opponent has caught the hare earlier. 3.8 Penalties only qualified jury members may impose penalties which must be in accordance with these rules. 3.8.1 punish a false start if the handler releases a dog prematurely or too late, due to tactical advantage, the Keur Masters may deduct 10% of the number of points obtained by the dog in that course. If an overflow of the same course takes place, this penalty expires. In case of a false start, the Keur masters can seek the advice of the starter 3.8.2 too late at the start if a dog is late at the start, he will be excluded for the rest of the day. 3.8.3 exclusion The jury may exclude a dog for the remainder of the day if: 1. He stays with his owner after the start signal or the match field leaves, 2. He does not follow the hare but his opponent, 3. He – in the opinion of the vet – has insufficient fitness for the competition.

4. Implementing rules for racing and coursing championships

4.1 The Application the FCI/CdL and the renvereniging or Coursingorganisatie determine, at the request of a country, where the title match will take place. The candidacy for a ren or COURSINGKAMPIOENSCHAP must be submitted in writing via the secretariat of the National Organisation. The candidate must guarantee a perfect settlement of the competition. FCI-Renkampioenschappen should always be held in the 1st or 2nd weekend of September. FCI-Coursingkampioenschappen should be held in the 2nd quarter of a year. 4.2 Species Renkampioenschappen A FCI championship is held every year: 

  • The FCI World Championship in even years
  • The FCI European Championship in odd years

4.3 titles to be attained are:

  • FCI European champion 20XX (eg. 2011)

4.4 Types Coursingkampioenschappen The FCI may authorise each year the:

  • FCI-European Championships coursing

4.5 titles to be attained is:

4.7 Organizer Championship matches can only be organized by a FCI member organization. Two years before the CdL the country and the place where the competition will be held. The concept of the text of the deregistration of the competition must be submitted to the CdL delegate for approval. This text can be passed on to the national organisations that are members of the FCI first after its approval. 4.7.1 Requirements in the Competition field the championship race can only be organised in areas that meet the basic requirements set out in § 2.4 and § 3.2 of these rules. 4.7.2 inspection of the terrain by FCI/CdL The CdL has the right to inspect the condition and condition of the racecourse and the Coursingterrein at any time between the date of ratification and that of the championship and may make changes and/or improvements Impose. 4.7.3 limitation of competitions on the date of a FCI championship are other international races or coursings not allowed. 4.8 Participation 4.8.1 Studbook required participation is open to all Greyhounds (group 10) included in the Studbook/appendix of the Studbook of a FCI member organisation or contract partner and for Greyhounds registered in the Studbook or annex Of the studbook of a non-FCI member organization with which the FCI has entered into a cooperation agreement for the mutual Recognition of tribal books (AKC, KC, CKC). This also applies to dogs imported from certain areas of origin of the varieties mentioned below, and which do not have a pedigree recognized by the FCI because there is no Kynologische organisation in these areas; The same applies to their descendants whose parents are included in the studbook/attachment of the Studbook (“Livre d’attente”) of the relevant FCI member or contract partner. Currently, this applies to varieties Azawakh and Saluki, as well as Sloughi’s from Algeria, Tunisia and Libya (Origin areas of this breed). This measure also applies to Sloughi’s bred by residents of Morocco who do not breed under the supervision/responsibility of their FCI member organisation, especially The Société Centrale Canine Marocaine, S.C.C.M. These dogs naturally do not get an export tree but a so-called. “Genealogy”. The main thing to participate in a championship (track racing or coursing) is that they are included in the appendix of the Studbook (“Livre d’attente”) of the relevant FCI country or partner. All Mediterranean varieties (Pharaoh Hound, Cirneco, Podenco Ibicenco and Podenco Canario) from Group 5 may also participate, but they are not eligible for a CACIL. 4.8.2 Required Ren and coursingresultaten for a FCI championship race, only dogs that have proven their results in the top of the competition may be registered.

Disqualification between the closing date and the date of the championship closes participation. Dogs who are injured during the first course of a job or coursing and must be withdrawn on the advice of the veterinarian (proven by a written statement from the veterinarian concerned) are expected to successfully have run out. 4.8.3 qualification for FCI Championship qualifying competitions that have been run before the dog reaches the minimum age specified in § 1.4.2 are invalid. 4.8.4 change of owner if a dog gets another owner and moves to another country, the dog may not be registered for the starting list and represent the new country unless he is at least 6 months in the studbook/register of the new Country is registered. 4.9 Enrollment 4.9.1 sending enrolment form registration forms for a FCI championship may not be sent directly to the organizing authority by the dog owner, but may only be transmitted by the National organisation be submitted to the owner. 4.9.2 number of dogs per country  FCI European Championships coursing:

4.9.3 Reserve dogs Each country may register reserve dogs above the maximum number of participants as mentioned in § 4.9.2, so that the possibility is offered to replace a dog that loses from the team. There are no friendship races organized for spare dogs that cannot participate in Renkampioenschappen. 4.9.4 data on registration form and timetable the FCI Committee for Greyhounds makes a template available for this registration form. The national organizations must register their dogs in order of their performance, separated by race and gender. The registration form must mention the pedigree names of the dogs and all necessary data for the award of the CACIL as well as the names of the owners as they are on the Ren or coursinglicenties.
