Judges at Kennel Club licensed Obedience Shows are expected to
maintain and abide by the highest standards, adhering to Kennel
Club Regulations and the judges' code of best practice as set out
in the Guide for Obedience Judges and Stewards. All judges should
be appropriately experienced and have suitable temperament,
physical fitness and stamina. They must act honestly and
impartially and judge in a customary fashion acceptable to
competitors. The overall aim of a judge is to provide value for the
time, training, effort and money which the competitors put into
their rounds at the show.
Judges' Record Book
It is important to keep a record of your judging appointments -
if you are invited to award Obedience Certificates in the future
you will need details of at least 30 shows at which you have judged
as evidence of your eligibility. An official Judges' Record Book
can be purchased from our online shop.
