When participating in a show or any competition or trial in DKK, a dog cannot be – or have been - treated with drugs that moderate or rouse its temperament, or affect its ability to perform.

There are several reasons that performance-enhancing drugs or treatments are not allowed prior to participating in trials or competitions.

What is considered doping?

It is not straight forward to list all allowed or illegal drugs. It is known from the human sports. Once rules are made, so are the ideas for loopholes.

Additionally, the possibility of testing or tracking the different drugs might not always available.


Therefore, DKK do not publish a list of illegal drugs, but will instead mention a series of examples of treatments that are unwanted in relation to all kinds of dog sports within DKK:

It is very different how long it takes for the different medical types to leave the body. You can, therefore, unintentionally participate with a doped dog, if it has been through some kind of treatment. To be on the safe side, you should ask the vet in charge how long the dog will be affected by the given medication.
