The CCAA is proud of our affiliation with the American Working Dog Federation. We are pleased to offer scorebooks through them.
(Printable version below)
Which scorebooks are accepted at AWDF sanctioned events?
Any official AWDF or DVG scorebook is accepted at all AWDF events (logo is on outside cover and AWDF tracking number is on first page). As of January 1, 2012 the new FCI rules require that only one scorebook can be used for each dog per trial. The exception is that an AWDF scorebook plus a DVG book can both be presented at a trial.
To enter the AWDF Championship, WDA or USA-only scorebooks will not be accepted.
Which scorebooks are NOT accepted?
It depends on which event you want to enter. WDA (Working Dogs of America) is non-AWDF organization and their scorebooks are accepted only at USA events. But AWDF scorebooks are accepted at WDA trials. Confirm entry requirements by contacting the trial secretary of the event. Similarly French Ring is not an AWDF member but will accept the AWDF scorebook. You must however be a NARA member to trial with them.
What do I need to apply for my AWDF scorebook from CCAA?
You need a copy of registration papers, proof of current CCAA membership, the $25 application fee, and a complete application. If transferring from another scorebook you will need to send a copy of the scorebook’s name page and pages where the titles are recorded. If your Cane Corso is not registered with AKC, or an FCI recognized organization (ICCF for example) you can still receive a scorebook via the working privilege listing the dog as a Cane Corso. This is possible through CCAA only and for a limited time.
Can I switch from my old scorebook to an CCAA AWDF scorebook?
If you have a scorebook from any AWDF member organization, fill out a normal application and include clear photocopies of the old scorebook that indicate titles your dog has earned. The highest level of each title will be copied into your new scorebook. The titles will not be copied into your new scorebook without a readable photocopy for records.
What if my dog is AKC/FCI registered and there is no breed club in AWDF? Will my dog be listed as "mix" or will the breed be listed?
Note the new AWDF policy at the beginning of these FAQs. The CCAA can issue a scorebook for your dog providing that FCI recognized registration is provided. This is regardless of whether or not there is a member club for your breed in the AWDF.
How is ownership of the dog documented in the scorebook?
The owner of the dog as stated on registration is written on the last page of the new scorebook, even if it differs from owner submitted on the scorebook application. Once there's proof of the transfer of registration, the owner can write the new information on the next line provided in the scorebook. It is not necessary to send the scorebook to the CCAA to make this revision. We do request that you send a copy of the updated registration as proof of ownership to our CCAA scorebook chair so it can be filed with the original application.
Note: The person in possession of the scorebook cannot add or change information on the front page of the scorebook. This requires submission to the CCAA along with the appropriate documentation. Information on the pages where titles are recorded cannot be added or changed by anyone other than the judge/hosting organization since these are official records of performance.
What if I want to enter a trial next week and I do not have a scorebook?
You have a few options. You can arrange with the CCAA scorebook coordinator to rush order a scorebook, but you will need to express mail or scan and email all paperwork. Additionally there is a $50.00 fee for scorebooks required within 2 weeks of receipt of the application by the secretary, however this option is not always available. AWMA and USCA club trials allow you to post a bond for your scorebook. You must make arrangements with the host club secretary before the trial. The club will then have to send all paperwork to the secretary so your scorebook can be issued. It is best to avoid this issue and order your scorebook as soon as you have your dog and registration.
Motion passed May 16, 2013 (AWDF annual meeting)
Effective immediately, AWDF member clubs can issue score books to any breed of dog owned by their members and list the dog’s breed on the score book provided that proof of FCI recognized registration accompanies the application. Score book application processes used by each member club will be followed.
Dogs for which no FCI recognized registration is submitted can receive a scorebook from any AWDF organization but the dog will be listed as a mix.
Breeds not recognized by the FCI (for example, American Bulldog) must have their scorebooks issued by their breed organization or the dog will be listed as a mix.
Clubs that offer the opportunity to have a non-FCI registered dog’s breed listed in the scorebook via a working privilege listing must have the scorebook issued by that club.
Effective March 21, 2013, USCA eliminated the requirement for scorebooks to be certified by USCA, thus also removing scorebook certification fees. USCA will accept scorebooks from all AWDF, WUSV, or FCI organizations.
Effective with the 2014 AWDF Championship, the requirement to use an AWDF scorebook is removed. This was done to accommodate the use of foreign scorebooks issued by FCI organizations and therefore complies with the FCI regulation of one scorebook per dog.
