ICKC does not accept checks for day of show entry. We will allow checks for pictures as the turn around date allows for the checks to clear.

        

IMPORTANT NOTICE: HOTELS ARE AN EXTENSION OF THE SHOW SITE AND ALL ICKC RULES ARE ENFORCED AT BOTH LOCATIONS. DOGS MAY NOT BE BATHED, LEFT LOOSE OR UNATTENDED IN HOTEL ROOMS. Exhibitors will be held responsible for any damage to their hotel rooms. ICKC does not have to accept entries from irresponsible owners or handlers.

PLEASE exercise dogs at the motels and the show sites in designated areas only, and you must pick up after your dogs.


No personal photos may be taken while the show photographer is taking pictures & no outside photographers will be allowed to take photos at our shows!
Anyone that is seen doing this can have their points removed on all dogs that they have shown with us. ICKC rents the grounds, hires & pays for judges fee, judges travel fees, hotels & meals for judges, flights for judges, ribbons, trophies, jackets & other prizes and all other expenses add up to a great amount. We do not expect to have people take photos behind our backs and not support us by purchasing the show win photos.. If you take show win photos they must be paid for or points & showing privilege will be removed.


Pre-Entry closes two  Sundays before the show at 11:59pm with no exceptions.  Late Online Entry closes Thursday before the show at 11:59pm. If you Pre-Enter and are unable to attend for any reason we are not required or obligated to refund your pre-entry monies or to allow you to use those pre-entries at a later show date. That is the inherent risk of pre-entering, the only time you will be allowed any allowances is if your dog that has been entered has been injured or sick and can be verified by a letter & copy of receipt from your veterinarian. Then we will try to accommodate you in some way by possibly letting you use part of your pre-entry fees to a future show. We regret having to enforce this issue but too many people are abusing it and now demanding to use their pre-entry for another show date. As spelled out in the Agreement on the Entry Forms we are not obligated in any way to letting you use the pre-entry fee for another show date so we are finding now that we have to enforce this ruling.   As of May 1, 2015 Day of Show Entry Only taken if at least one show for the weekend has been pre-entered.
