The following amendments to the Obedience 'G'
Regulations have been recently approved by the General Committee
and will come into effect on 1 January 2015.
Regulation G33.b Judges and Judging
Regulation G30.f. Management will become Regulation G33.b
Judges and Judging. Amending the Regulation in this way is designed
to highlight and remind judges to observe all dogs in the ring. As

Regulation will also be slightly amended to state that the judge
must be present in the ring when observing the dog.
