LINE with its stated policy of fast-tracking or facilitating
the appointment of ‘new’ group judges at general
championship shows the Kennel Club has announced the introduction
of a new policy.
The policy, thought to have been approved of it principle some time ago, has been amending accordingly:- ‘It is felt that Group judges should award CCs in at least 20% of the Challenge Certificate breeds within the Group. It was amended as follows: -
‘Gundog, Hound & Terrier Groups – 5 breeds (4 breeds unconnected)
‘Utility, Toy & Pastoral Groups – 4 breeds (all unconnected)
‘Working Group – 3 breeds (all unconnected).
‘BIS – 1 Group and breeds from 2 other Groups. Must have a minimum of 7 CC breeds in total and at least 1 breed from 2 Groups other than that for which the judge is approved.’
The Kennel Club press release was issued on Thursday December 11th.
