Postal strike affects services of the Finnish Kennel Club

A strike that affects mail delivery began on Monday, 11th November. The main Finnish postal service Posti estimates that the delivery of letters and magazines will be interrupted and that the delays could last for weeks. This also affects services of the Finnish Kennel Club and Showlink Oy, as well as deliveries related to Koiramessut – Dog Fair Finland.  

Because of the strike, deliveries of the November issue of the Finnish Kennel Club’s member magazine Koiramme as well as letters and packages sent from the Finnish Kennel Club’s office are expected to be significantly delayed. 

The Finnish Kennel Club’s subsidiary company Showlink Oy will print out completed documents, such as pedigrees and certificates, as usual. However, these are mailed only after the strike has ended. Documents can be collected from Showlink offices within their opening hours. Litter registration certificates can be collected from Showlink’s office in Espoo. Prepaid litter registration certificates, pedigrees for imported dogs sent to Leppävirta, diplomas, championship certificates, FIX identification certificates and other corrected registration certificates can be collected from Showlink’s office in Leppävirta. Documents can also be collected by presenting a power of attorney.

Dog show mail is sent by email

During the strike, all mail regarding dog shows is automatically emailed by Showlink, even if the exhibitor would have specifically asked to receive show numbers and schedules by mail.

For deliveries regarding Koiramessut – Dog Fair Finland (such as permits to enter the fair), other ways of delivery are used, according to the situation, and delivery methods are discussed with parties concerned.
