The Kennel Club Judges Development Programme

The Kennel Club has announced its autumn dates for the Pastoral Group Judges Development Programme 2013, to be held at the Kennel Club Building, Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire, CV8 2LZ, on 13thand 14thNovember.

Wednesday 13th November will feature a seminar for Old English Sheepdog judges, followed by the seminar for Hungarian Puli judges on Thursday 14th.

The programme, run by the Manchester Dog Show Society, is designed as part of the Kennel Club's commitment to judges' education, and will enable judges to enhance their knowledge of the scheduled breeds.

Judges wishing to attend a JDP Breed seminar must have:

  • previously awarded CCs to at least three breeds within the relevant Group (i.e. the same group as the host Group) or
  • previously awarded CCs to two breeds within the relevant Group (i.e. the same group as the host Group) and at least one CC in another Group, or
  • been previously approved by the Kennel Club to judge a Group at Championship Show level.

Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club Secretary, said: The Pastoral Group Judges Development programme seminars in November are a great chance for eligible Championship show judges to stay abreast of current information on the scheduled breeds, which will help their judging experience.

"The Kennel Club is dedicated to providing education across all of its disciplines, and we hope that our judges will make the most of this opportunity."
