Bloodhound Trials Judging Seminar
The criteria for judging at Bloodhound Trials are changing from 1st January 2019. The old classroom seminars for rules and regulations and planning and management will no longer be held.
To begin judging.
A judge must;
Have the support of the committee
Have carried out at least 4 assistant appointments
Have gained experience and helped in the organisation of trials, training days and prestigious stakes.
Have successfully completed the Kennel club rules and regulations exam on the Kennel Club Academy on line.
Have successfully participated in a planning and management assessment day organised by the Bloodhound Accredited Trainers.
From the 1st January 2019, candidates must successfully pass the rules and regulations exam on the Kennel Club Academy website. There is a £26.00 joining fee which is payable by candidates. This is comparable to the £25.00 classroom seminar fee and of course incurs no travelling expenses. A guide for Bloodhound trial judges, which gives you all the information and facts you need, can be downloaded from the Kennel Club website www.thekennelclub.org.uk
Candidates who successfully complete the rules and regulations exam need to attend a planning and management assessment day. This is a practical assessment and entails getting out and about and organising a mock trial. Maps, stooge handler and hounds are provided and the delegates work together to plan the day, organising the lines, line walkers and judging the competitors.
This is followed by a question and answer session. The first planning and management assessment day is to be held on SATURDAY 27th APRIL 2019.
