Information about Shows and Judges
Bloodhound Breed Shows
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. 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.
Running 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.
If you are interested in judging bloodhounds please send your CV or down load the above form and send in.
We will keep you informed of any upcoming training.

Training to be a show judge
From 2019 the Kennel Club are introducing a new training scheme for all show judges.
Each Breed will have a BEC, Breed Education Coordinator. They will arrange training, mentoring and other matters related to the JFC.
Our BEC is Lorraine Priestly.
As she developed the role, information will be available via the website and magazines. This is a joint action with the Bloodhound Club.
ABB show judges list
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 show judge sub committee will review the cv and ensure judges are on the correct lists.
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 up to 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.
