Extracts from the Official Veterinary Order
The event shall be supervised by an Official Veterinary Surgeon. Order and instructions given by him/her shall be strictly observed by the show management as well as participants.
Dogs presented must have been vaccinated against Rabies a minimum of 3 weeks prior to the show (proof shall be furnished).
The antirabic vaccination shall be valid for 12 months from the date of vaccination. If a longer validity is to be asserted then this must be proven by an entry in the validity of the vaccination certificate or the EU Pet Passport in the “valid until” field.
If the vaccinated dog is revaccinated before the expiration of the previous vaccination, then the so-called 3 weeks limit shall not apply.
Vaccination Document/Pet Pass
The dogs being brought to an event (show) must have a proof that they have been vaccinated against rabies at least three weeks before the start of the show (bring vaccination documents/EU pet pass). The rabies vaccination is valid for 12 months from the day of the vaccination. If a longer period is to
be made valid, then this extended period must be noted officially in the vaccination documents or in the pet pass in the field marked „valid until“.
If a dog receives a re-vaccination against rabies within the validity period, then the so-called 3 week deadline no longer applies. For primary vaccinations, the dog must have been at least three months old at the time of the vaccination and the vaccination must have taken place at least 21 days before the event.
