If your dog has gained its title between entering and commencement of the competition, you must update your dog's details with your State Controlling Body. RASV will then adjust the records prior to the competition commencement. 

If you wish to enter a Baby Puppy, you are now able to return to the online system and add your dog under your existing exhibitor details.

Once you have selected the class that you wish to enter, the system will automatically filter all dogs based on the applicable genders, you will then be able to select ‘New Dog’ or ‘Search for Dog’. When you select ‘Search for Dog’ you can search by name or registration number. Once you have found your dog(s), you will not need to provide any further details.
