Approved First Time Judges with Cancelled Appointments

The following judges were approved by the Kennel Club due to award Challenge Certificates or undertake appointments for Groups or Best in Show for the first time at shows cancelled as a result of COVID-19. Consequently these judges are considered to be previously approved and are not required to complete another judging questionnaire if nominated to judge these breeds or the relevant Group or Best in Show appointment.

Societies wishing to nominate these judge for the breed listed below should do so in the normal manner, completing the relevant nomination form.

Please note that, due to the practicalities of amending this list, if judges receive a nomination for the breeds listed below their name will continue to appear on this list. Societies and exhibitors are reminded that the ‘Find a Judge’ website gives full listings of appointments for Challenge Certificate, Group and Best in Show once these have been undertaken.
