My Judging

I had my first judging appointment in July 2010, which was at Worthing & District Canine Society.  Previous to this I gained as much experience as I could by being asked to Judge for Ring Craft Society Matches, where you are able to go over many breeds.

In addition to the above have taken the following seminars and at present I'm a B List (breed Specialist) Judge with Four Counties Beagle Club, The Beagle Club, The Beagle Association, The Northern & Midland Counties Beagle Club, and C List for West Mercia Beagle Club. I'm also on the C List for Rhodesian Ridgebacks, Pharaoh Hounds and Basenji's, Dachshunds, Basset Hound, PBGV, GBGV, Pointer (Breed Specialist) and German Shorthaired Pointer. I have also judged Whippets, Afghans & Boston Terriers.  As I have a great enthusiasm for all breeds, especially hounds & Gundogs.
