About the course

An introduction to the art and science of judging dogs for breed specialists and non-specialists

The Judging Diploma Course teaches the principles of judging and the basic knowledge of structure, movement, conformation and breed type. The successful ownership and exhibition of show dogs over a minimum period of five years is an important pre-requisite for the course. It would also be advantageous to be on a breed club ‘B’ list although any judging experience would be helpful.
