Colombia: Wilson Villalobos has bought a puppy from argentina (Happy: 1, 2). As it is cheaper if someone brings it in the plane (less papers and no costs for importation), he created a seminar with Luciano Peccin (argentina) in january; then the trip is free (the cost is divided between the people going to the seminar). People from medellin (colombia) also asked for one in their city, trying to avoid flying trip with dogs, but they won't have that chance. They were very happy with last seminar with luciano peccin. Reference on facebook. Those are some of the ways southamerican people found nowadays to pay costs that before where impossible for them. For example, some time ago the seminars were much cheapper but now, the prices that have to be payed for a seminar are bigger. On one hand, some people say that sometimes the seminars are organized only to collect money and on the other one, some organizers say that they only cover costs even when the money collected is of 15.000 dollars. It is impossible to know if this is really happenning, partially happening, etc. In southamerica nearly every agilitist spends the money they don't have to learn, train and run agility.

USA: changes in AKC rules applicable from January 2014 linked by agilitynerd (.pdf). they can send question on changes to firstname.lastname@example.org Among several changes, they do not allow the participation of females in heat and restores their registration fee. A variety of comments have being post regard that on the facebook of gail storm (click): ‘ I agree that would be great for that one bitch and her owner, but it might be really bad for 50 other dogs at the trial. And everyone knows all my dogs are intact and I run herding trials and they run in heat but I think that's a lot different than an agility atmosphere too. Sometimes I think that we do have to think in terms of majority rules.’ (gail). ‘I wonder how many owners would complain if my male dog went over and peed on the weave poles and no one cleaned it up?’ (Susan). ‘smells aren't supposed to bother trained working dogs’ (Ragan Price Kimbro). ‘ I really don't care if they are allowed or not, but those that make arguments for or against don't always look at the whole picture.’ (Linda). ‘ I guess if you only think of “your” dog, it might seem a non issue. But to the one who is affected it would be a HUGE issue. By the way mine don't care, but I'm not thinking of only “my” dog. Also, all this is thinking about maybe 1 BIS at a trial, if it was allowed you would almost certainly have more at the trial making it even harder for the dogs that do get affected. I have seen many dogs be affected at practices. Last post by me, respectfully, just my opinion on the matter.’ (Rafael quiñones). ‘ I have both intact males and an intact female. It doesn't affect all the males the same way, and many people wouldn't have the opportunity to train with a BIS. ... ’ (Catherine). ‘ the 'average' competitor is capable of the training and management required to deal with BIS at a show site.’ (daisy).

Argentina: up to the actual rules, teams for FCI WC 2014 qualify in the following way: the first place of national championship has a spot and the other qualified teams have to run a trial on march 1-2 (click). For taking part of the trial on march, the dogs need some perfect runs in agility + jumping or 8 clean run in regionals or national championships. Santa fé has the last trial of regional championship today and, probably due to discrepancies with the organization, they did not take part of any trial of regional and national championship. they don't have time to earn the results needed. Eventhough they can take part of most competitions from the A&C games in peru, european open, border collie classic, etc. 3 of the 4 dogs at WC 2012 (and all the dogs at european open and border collie classic this year) were from santa fe. After november 10, the directly qualified fron national championship ranking will be known (maybe they already qualified but we couldn't find the ranking (some countries in southamerica as uruguay doesn't publish results nor ranking never).
