Dogs NZ Covid 19 Management Plans


Conducting Dogs NZ Events and Dog Training activities during COVID-19 Alert Level 2.

In response to the Global Covid-19 Pandemic, Executive Council recommended that all Dogs NZ events in New Zealand are postponed until 30 June 2020 and a decision was made to cancel our national shows in 2020 (NDS, NDOA, NZDAC & FCI).

Under Alert Level 2 we have the opportunity to recommence our shows and dog training activities as long as they abide by a range of public health measures which promote good hygiene, social distancing and contact tracing to protect the wellbeing of all attendees.

The decision to recommence shows and dog training events is at each clubs discretion and you should only do so once you are happy that you have the proper protocols in place to manage any health risk to your club officials, exhibitors and the general public.

We also have the opportunity to re-open our three Exhibition Centres as long as they have a COVID 19 Management Plan in place.

Executive Council has approved the following list of general principals and recommended mitigation on perceived pressure points for clubs running events in Alert level 2.

These restrictions may impact on a clubs ability to run a traditional show but it is the “new normal’ while we are under Alert Level 2. Everything is going to have to be more “local” as clubs are going to have to rely on local judges and local exhibitor support to hold shows.

Be kind and understanding and do not expect everyone to be able to assist at shows or dog training events run under these conditions.
