Information about Shows and Judges
The ABB holds two shows a year under Kennel Club rules and show regulations.
The Spring show is held after the AGM and is an open show,
September is the Championship Show and both are held at the Canine Academy, Tollerton.
To become a Judge at shows you need to meet the criteria of The Kennel Club. Both clubs provide training support for this. Full details are available on the KC website.Criteria for Judges Kennel ClubABB Judges CriteriaJudges Questionnaire/CVRunning a show requires a number of people to make it happen. Aspiring judges need to steward and show manage as part of the learning process. If you would like to help out in this way please get in contact.
Judges Competency Framework
Changes to show judge's education, approval and listing called the Judges Competency Framework will come into effect from 2019 and run alongside the existing system for 3 years. It will effects judges at all levels. Details can be found in this official press release down loadable Here.
Further details here on JCF
The levels are shown to give some guidance.
Each year the Association of Bloodhound Breeders will call for nominations to the judges lists (you may nominate yourself if you wish) and, after any questionnaires have been completed, the voting will take place as usual with the votes counted by an independent returning officer.
If you are interested in judging, the Association recommends that you start a portfolio with details of your relevant experience which can then be used for reference when filling in questionnaires. It is important to keep contact information unto date.
We would remind aspiring judges that the lists are valid for only one year at a time and that inclusion in a list in one year does not necessarily ensure inclusion in future years. Nominations should be sent to Hon Secretary by 26th October each year.
