We levy a small annual registration fee to cover the storage of your and your dog's details. These are then retrieved and displayed on the screen every time you enter a show - therefore you enter them only once no matter how many shows you enter. Championship eligibility also only needs recording once.
Annual registration is £2 for your details and £1 for
each competing dog in your household that you register. These fees become due on each anniversary of entering your first show with us. Dogs registered as NFC are free and are passed through automatically with every show you enter.
For each show you enter we charge a 50p administration fee - cheaper than a stamp and an envelope!
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 the declaration and any camping, 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.
Details of your entry including fees are shown on your Home 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 and camping pass to arrive - or with some shows you can opt out of paying return postage and download your own ring cards and 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.
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 also can be recorded.
When you enter
a show, you will be given an option to change the handler for any dog and class combination.
Of course, but
you will be charged separate annual registration fees, and show entry admin and postage fees.
You will only be
able to enter those shows choosing to use the iSS service. We constantly market our service to show organisers
and many are choosing to use iSS. By the summer of 2013 we have hosted over 700 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.
To complete registration and receive a confirmation email with details of your Log-in ID, you must complete at least your address details.
Your Log-in ID within the confirmation email, 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.
The most common reason is that an incorrect
e-mail address has been used. If the e-mail address is wrong, we cannot contact you.
Please contact us to inform us that you have not received your details, and we can reply to the correct e-mail address and amend the one you originally recorded on the Site.
Alternatively, many ISPs, particularly AOL, send unidentified e-mails straight to a Junk or Spam e-mail folder. You should check this folder before contacting us, as subsequent e-mails could be affected in the same way.
To ensure our e-mails get to you, please add firstname.lastname@example.org to your e-mail Address Book or Safe List.
Log in to the site and select the My 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 no. and are 4 months old, and will automatically be
added NFC to any entries you make for a show.
First of all choose the My 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 Home 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.
Once the show has closed you 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 log-in ID, 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 closed 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.
Log in to the site and select the My 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 iSS account.
If the dog is entered in shows that have not yet happened you will be redirected to the Contact Us page, which you must then forward on to the iSS administrator.
When you log into the site, the first page you see is your Home 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:
If you enter a show with insufficient credit in your account then an email is generated to that affect and sent
immediately upon completion of your entry. Paying by card straight after entering a show does not stop the email being sent.
However, your Home Page always shows the true state of your entries and can be viewed 24/7 right up until the show has taken place.
You will be notified of “Possible Cancellation” by
e-mail (or by SMS text if you have provided a mobile number in your details).
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 log-in ID and password to check your account balance and view your account statement. Your Home Page clearly identifies which shows remain unpaid, and the amount required to deposit.
There are several different ways to pay, but in all cases IT IS ESSENTIAL YOU QUOTE YOUR LOG-IN ID to ensure monies are correctly allocated to your account.
The fees that are owed when you enter a show are shown on your Home Page with more details shown on the My Account page.
These are also detailed in a show entry confirmation email sent at the time of entering.
Monies can be deposited into your iShowServices account by one of the following:
If you have deposited funds and they do not appear on your account, them please
contact us immediately.
We have particular problems with payments made over the counter, as the login ID is not always passed on by HSBC.
For example: Co-op banks pass on your account number and not your login id
and Lloyds/TSB require you to contact them first to set up the payment details correctly.
Yes. At the time of
entering a show you will have to accept a Declaration. This is your contract
with the club that you will abide by current KC Regulations and the Rules of the show and is the same as
the declaration found on current paper entry forms. If you do not accept the
Declaration, you cannot submit an entry to the show.
provides internet entry for shows which can then be passed to
the show secretary as fully printed entry forms for further processing or direct to an
appropriate show processing provider. iShowServices recommends Agility Aid for show processing,
which provides full show processing services such as running orders, ring cards, calling sheets, score sheets
etc. but other show processors may be used.
iShowServices provides entries that are accurate with regard to handler and dog details, entry fees and number and type of individual classes entered. As the iShowServices registration database grows, pairs and team entries will carry the same accuracy.
