To make an account, so that you can create your entries, we only need your human name and your pet/handler name, and you need a password. We will not display your human name anywhere public unlss you give us permission in your entry form; actually, we will not even look for it ourselves unless we have to for any issues. Your e-mail address will only be used if you need to reset your passwordNote.Note: we set this up very quickly, becaus of the way e-mail systems protect you from span, we can NOT send e-mail directly from our website. If you forget your password, you will need to e-mail us from the email address you registered, and we will send you a link to reset your password back. But that is done manually, so you will need to be patiend (may take a full day to reply). Sorry, but its better to prevent spam and at the same time just get things going!
