Kennel Sitting Policy

A kennel sitter is someone you ask to look after your dogs when you find yourself unable to spend time on ShowDog for whatever reason.

Under no circumstances do we recommend you hire a kennel sitter. It is much better to simply change your Salary/Session Setting (if you are a premium user) and enter your dogs in shows ahead of time. If you give someone access to your kennel, you agree to accept whatever that person does to your kennel. We will not return dogs from Forever Homes, abort pregnancies, refund purchases, or otherwise reverse anything that your kennel sitter does to your kennel. Please understand the risk you are taking by allowing someone else access to your account.

Advertising on the forums for a kennel sitter and giving your password to someone you do not know is a huge risk. Just because someone promises that you can trust them and that they won't do anything to your kennel does not mean its safe to give them your password.
If you do choose to hire a kennel sitter, make sure it is someone that you know personally and can trust. 

If you are going to be away and want your dogs sessioned, you can use the Kennel Assistants link.

Did you know?
A specialty show may be regional or national. A "Best in Show" win at a national specialty show is tremendously prestigious, indicating that the winning dog or bitch triumphed at a contest which attracted entries from the most serious fanciers of that breed in the country or continent. Some specialty shows attract international entries.
