The judges lists are renewed at the start of each year and successful applicants may not appear on the list here until the annual update is posted. From early 2022 applicants are still welcome but should be aware that the whole judges education and approval system is in the process of change, for example the lists will be referred to as Levels 1, 2, 3 and 4 with different criteria to qualify for each. This process is currently in a transitional stage and further information can be gained from the breed BEC or the KC themselves. If you are a new judge you must complete the JEP Judges List form and must be accredited as level 1 before being eligible to undertake any judging appointment. You should not accept any appointment unless you have this accreditation. See the club Judges List page for more information.

This is a form to be brought to the ring if participating in the Veteran’s or Rescue parades at the Garden Party where the information you give about your dog will be read out to the appreciative crowd. We would encourage all Rescue dogs or Veteran Dogs to join in and be recognised and have their moment of recognition in the spotlight. The forms should also be available on the day but much easier to print off and complete in advance with more time to think about the information you are giving to be read out live about your lovely dog to the audience. You will also have a more relaxing time at the event with on less thing to do.
