The Kennel Club are currently reviewing their plans for their new judging system. This is a consultative process and will probably take some time before everything is agreed.
In the meantime, both old and new systems are running side by side and prospective judges need to look carefully at both and decide which one will work best for them. Broadly speaking if you are well on your way to getting the numbers required by the old system that may be best for you but there are no hard and fast rules on this.
The latest information can be found on the Kennel Club website and it is constantly being updated.
Elaine Roberts is very happy to organise Mentoring sessions for people who have the necessary qualifications or to help in any other way she can.
The Aplication forms for judging list and the JEP judging list have been updated and are now below in both Word & PDF format. In addition the current Judges list is availble to view at the bottom of this page.
