    Does anyone have any experience of the above...and what GCCF will and won’t accept. It’s purely an oversight on my part...young stud, not yet in his own quarters etc. However if we go by the 26 week rule that is now in place, I think I’m about 3 weeks adrift.

    As the 26 week rule has only just been applied I don't know how they'd view it. The wording does however say that it must be applied within the overall guidance of no more than three litters in a 24 month period.

    Whether this means you'll be ok if this isn't more than three litters in 24 months, I don't know, ie will your queen have had only two litters in the past 24 months, even though these are a little less than 26 weeks apart.

    It appears from the wording that the only extenuating circumstances they'll accept are, for example, on the grounds of the queen's health with regard to calling which must be backed up by a letter from your vet.
