Frequently Asked Questions

Click on a question above to read the Agility Shows Online response.

 

How much will it cost me to register?

Nothing! Zero!
However, for each show you enter we charge a 50p administration fee - cheaper than printing an entry form and a stamp and an envelope!

What are the benefits of entering a show on ASO?

Many. But in particular, once you have registered it will only take you a few clicks of your mouse to enter a show.

When you choose a show to enter, after accepting the declaration and booking camping where available, a drop down list of the dogs you have registered is displayed - select the dog you wish to enter, and the classes for which it is eligible appear. If you do not wish to enter any particular class, de-select that class and any handler can be changed here if needed.

Details of your entry including fees are shown on your Shows Entered page and will be sent to you by email - leaving you to arrange payment (if not sufficiently in credit) by whichever means you choose (see the How do I Pay FAQ) - and that's all there is to it. You may view your entry right up until midnight of the day of the show. If you are able to enter camping on-line, then you have your spot! Just sit back and wait for your running orders to arrive - or with most shows you can opt out of paying return postage and download your own ring cards and personalised ring plan when ready!

No more trying to source a schedule and entry form. No more finding your dog's registration details. No more filling in your name & address. No more envelopes and stamps.

Do all the handlers/owners in our household have to register separately?

No. All handlers and dogs that reside at the same address may use one registration.

Only one person need register per household. This will be the person to which ring cards will be returned prior to the show. You can register all the dogs in the household with their usual handler, even if the dogs are under different ownership which should be recorded.

When you enter a show, you have the option to overtype the handler name for any dog and class combination.

Can we register separately if we want to?

Of course, but you will be charged separate show entry admin and return postage fees.

^top

Will I be able to enter all shows on-line?

You will only be able to enter those shows choosing to use the ASO service. We constantly market our service to show organisers and many are choosing to use ASO.
As well as many Kennel Club licensed shows we also host FAB shows and many independent ones.

If you belong to a club that is holding a show next year, why not tell them about the service as there are many benefits to show organisers as well.

I'm having problems registering

To complete registration and receive a confirmation email, you must complete at least your address details as specified on the registration form.

Your email and password you submitted can then be used to gain entry to the site where you may add your dogs details if you did not do so during registration.

Should you need any further assistance please contact us

^top

Why have I not received my registration confirmation email?

The most common reason is that an incorrect email address has been used. If the email address is wrong, we cannot contact you.
Please contact us to inform us that you have not received your confirmation email, and we can reply to the correct email address and amend the one you originally recorded on the Site.
Alternatively, unidentified emails can be sent straight to a Junk or Spam email folder. You should check this folder before contacting us, as subsequent emails could be affected in the same way.
To ensure our emails get to you, please add kate@agilityshows.online to your email Address Book or Safe List.

How do I add a dog to my registration?

Log in to the site and select the Dog's Details menu bar item – then select the Add a Dog button completing those details as recorded at the Kennel Club.
Puppies should be added when they have their KC registration number and are 4 months old, and will automatically be added NFC to any entries you make for a show.
Any dog without a KC registration number can be added but you will need to use NAF (name applied for) as the registration number which must be updated as soon as you receive it from the Kennel Club.

^top

Grade changes – what do I have to do?

Any show 25 days after the date of your win that requires a grade change will need amending and must be done a minimum of 14 days before the first day of the show.
Choose the Dog's Details menu bar item and select the dog in question and then change it's grade.
Then for any show that is affected select the Amend/Change button alongside the showname on your Shows Entered page.
For some shows where there are a choice of classes or where you have chosen not to enter all available, the best option is to cancel one dogs entries and then re-enter the appropriate classes.
If the show closing date has passed you will need to select the Grade Change button alongside the showname. If this option does not change your grade correctly please contact us with the following details: Your name, the show name, the dog’s name, the class numbers to cancel and the replacement class numbers required. Amendments required through change in height or dog classification will be made free of charge. Where a show has already been downloaded and we had not received notification of your wins, it may be necessary to refer you to the Show Secretary who will refer to the appropriate regulation on notification when winning out.

^top

How do I remove a dog from my registration?

Log in to the site and select the Dog's Details menu bar item – then click on the appropriate dogs name. The next screen will display all the details of that particular dog with options to amend these details, change the owner details or remove the dog from your ASO account.
If the dog is entered in shows that have not yet taken place you will be redirected to the Contact Us page, so the ASO administrator can assist you.

^top

How can I cancel/amend entries I have made?

When you log into the site, the first page you see is your Shows Entered page. If the show has not closed, there will be an Amend/Cancel button alongside the showname. Clicking this button will take you to options to:

  • Cancel the entire show entry (which will also remove camping, offer of help etc)
  • Add to your entry (e.g. didn't enter all dogs previously or need to add another nights camping)
  • Cancel one dog's individual class entries (e.g. moved up a Grade and need to choose different classes or switching to Allsorts)
  • Amend Pairs entries - if applicable to that show
  • Amend Team entries - if applicable to that show

I entered a show and then paid by card but my confirmation email says "NOT ENOUGH MONEY FOR SHOW ENTRY"?

Your show entry confirmation email is generated at the time that you complete your entry. Any card or PayPal payment that takes place after this email is sent will update your account and your Shows Entered page will always show the true state of your entries and can be viewed 24/7 right up until the show has taken place.

^top

What happens if insufficient funds are in my account at closing date?

You will be notified of “Possible Cancellation” by email.
However, if your entry remains unpaid after 5 days from close of entries, then we shall have no alternative but to cancel your entries without further notice. It is your responsibility to check your account and ensure that payment has gone through. We cannot he held responsible for payments made that we have been unable to identify and therefore not updated your Account within the timescale. You may log in at any time from any computer with internet access using your registered email address and password to check your account balance and view your account statement. Your Shows Entered page clearly identifies which shows remain unpaid, and the amount required to deposit.

How do I pay?

There are several different ways to pay, but in all cases IT IS ESSENTIAL YOU QUOTE YOUR UNIQUE PAYMENT REFERENCE to ensure monies are correctly allocated to your account.

The fees that are owed when you enter a show are shown on your Shows Entered page with more details shown on the Account page.
These are also detailed in a show entry confirmation email sent at the time of entering.

What should I do if I have made a payment to my account but it is not shown?

If you have deposited funds and they do not appear on your account, then please contact us immediately.
Payments over the counter may take 2 working days to clear, telephone or internet banking payments a few hours but card and PayPal account payments should appear immediately.

^top

Are the Kennel Club happy to accept entries this way?

Yes. At the time of entering a show you will have to accept a Declaration. This is your contract with the organising club that you will abide by current KC Regulations and the Rules of the show and is the same as the declaration found on paper entry forms. If you do not accept the Declaration, you cannot submit an entry to the show.
