Speaker: Mrs Jacky Macandie Hall (Niavana)

Attendance Application Form (docx)

The Breed Appreciation Day (BAD) is open to all who wish to gain a better understanding of all four varieties of the Belgian Shepherd Dog. The BAD is a mandatory requirement for all judges wishing to progress from Level 1 to Level 2 on the Judges Competency Framework (JCF). The Kennel Club has stated that from 2020 all judges will need to be registered on at least JCF Level 1 in order to undertake any judging appointment.

The morning session will consist of an in-depth introduction to the Belgiian Shepherd Dog and the Kennel Club Breed Standard which is an essential part of the criteria for awarding CC's in the breed. A multiple choice exam (MCE) will then take place for those who have elected to sit the exam.

Following lunch there will be an opportunity for a limited number of candidates (12) to take part in a Group Mentoring Session (fully subscribed). Successful candidates must have passed the MCE in the morning to be eligible to take part in the Mentoring Session.

Anyone can attend the BAD but only Judges who have undertaken the following Kennel Club education seminars are eligible to take the Multiple Choice Exam:

  • To have passed the Rules and Regulations of a Dog Show Judge
  • To have passed the Points of a Dog Assessment
  • To have attended a Conformation & Movement Seminar
  • To have completed 6 days of stewarding
