Not seeing your dog’s Win Certificate or the dog’s Invitational Points credited or are incorrect?

Win Certificates that are displayed in the AFTCA website Dog Win Database as well as the Invitational Points standings are as current as the Essential Data Forms that are received in the AFTCA office. Typically, Essential Data Forms (EDF) are reviewed, approved and posted within three business days of being received in the AFTCA office or posted online.

Almost without exception the primary reasons for Win Certificates or Invitational Points not being accurately accounted for is either:

• Essential Data Form has not yet been submitted by the host club or has been submitted with incomplete information.

• An Individual Member has not completed their Member Profile or their Active Dog List which  causes a delay for the host club (submitting their EDF).

• Essential Data Form was submitted but did not properly indicate it was an Invitational Points Stake.

The first two reasons account for over 90% of the omissions.

The current AFTCA website was designed for individual members to be able to manage their own dogs.

You, the individual AFTCA member, are the first line of offense to make sure that your dog’s wins are properly documented. It starts by making sure your Member Profile is accurate and complete! Completing your Active Dog list is beyond simple. If you have your dog’s Field Dog Stud Book registration certificate in hand, you can complete the dog info screens in under a minute per dog.

It cannot be stressed how important this is. If you don’t have access to a computer, please ask a friend.

Once you know your Profile and Dog List is accurate and complete you can manage the dog’s Invitational points by going to the real time graph and clicking on your dog. That dog’s winning performances in the current field trial season will display in a popup window.

If you know that there are placements missing, please contact the club responsible to make sure the Essential Data Form(s) has been submitted to the AFTCA. Information is not shared between the AFTCA and American Field (Field Dog Stud Book), so the Essential Data Form must be submitted to both the AFTCA and the American Field.

Please allow up to a week from the date it is mailed for mail time and processing to complete the task. If the club goes online and completes the Essential Data Form, the time can be reduced to hours.
