Submitting PAL photos. Which should I choose?
 
I think I like the second one better. Will it be a problem that you can't see her feet? She is 25.5" at the withers and weighs about 80 lbs. We are getting a PAL registration so that we can compete in obedience and tracking. Please let me know if the colors look weird on your monitor- mine is not calibrated that well.

second one. You need one straight at his front also

Second one is fine.

LeoRose 01-21-2014 11:12 AM

Either one would be fine. They both look better than Leo's. Don't forget to take one from the front.

Second is good. The grass is short enough that it *shouldn't* be a problem.

Get a nice front shot, too!

The instructions specifically say "no grass". Please do it properly so you don't have to re-do it. :-)

You know, I thought of that after I got home and read the instructions again. What is confusing is that in the "Do This" examples they have TWO dogs standing on grass. So uh...???

But there's no reason I can't take them again. Her front shot turned out pretty crappy anyway so it might be a good idea. I have heard it is tough to do tracking without a PAL.

Just send them off. If they want another picture, they'll let you know. And if you want to do any AKC events, you'll need the PAL.

Karla 01-21-2014 01:10 PM

Yes, they should have used better pictures for the examples, but they used a picture that pertained to the wording beside it, i.e. the close up pic vs the dog in the distance.

You can not participate in any AKC events without being registered with AKC, have a PAL number or be registered as a canine partner for mixed breeds.

Best of luck in obedience and tracking!

Warning: Participation in dog sports can be addictive. Ha, ha

Ah yes I understood that. I was more worried about being able to secure a spot in a tracking test, not just eligibility to compete. There are only one or two per year where I live. Otherwise I would just do canine partners since it's just a piece of paper either way. I think it's up to the club to decide whether or not to accept canine partners in trials? Thank you very much for the advice and well wishes!
