Your dog’s welfare is extremely important to us. Please protect him or them by respecting fully all the following recomendations:

– Do not leave your dog inside the car in the sun.
– Do not leave your dog on the preparation table for longer than necessary for its grooming and under no circumstances you should leave him unattended.
– Find a suitable location that protects him from weather conditions and other situations that could possibly endanger him.
– Always watch your dog in order to prevent a risk to its life or to the physical integrity of other dogs, animals or people.

The exhibitors are responsible for safeguarding the welfare of the dog at a dog show.
It is forbidden to put the dog in a situation that can be dangerous for its health and welfare, such as leaving the dog in the car in hot or cold weather and/or treating the dog in a cruel manner.
Violation of this ruling will result in exclusion from the ongoing and future dog shows.

The exhibitors are responsible for collecting the droppings of their animals on the show ground.

It is strictly forbidden to sell animals in the show.

For every case not mentioned in the programme, the CPC Shows Regulation (Regulamento das Exposições Caninas e Concursos de Beleza) applies.
