The Kennel Club has altered its policy regarding the maximum
number of breeds that should be judged by one person in one
The validity of the policy was questioned in view of the falling
entries at shows and it was agreed that in the current economic
climate, it would benefit societies if they could invite judges to
judge more than three breeds with CCs in one day.
The altered policy is as follows (amendments underlined);
The maximum number of dogs of breeds with Challenge Certificates
that should be judged by one person in one day is:
One breed - up to 250 dogs
Two breeds - up to 200 dogs
Three or more breeds - up to 150 dogs
There is no limit on the number of breeds with CCs that can be
judged in one day, provided that the number of dogs entered across
the breeds does not exceed 150.
Nominal absentee rates for that particular show may be taken into
