(to be followed by a Breed Specific Judging Assessment)
to be held on October 14th 2018

This is a great opportunity for aspiring judges to add one of the essential elements to their judging CVs. Accredited trainer Kathy Gorman will conduct the Points of the Dog assessments and the cost per candidate is £12, which will include light refreshments. Successful candidates will receive a KC pass certificate.

Our Breed Specific Judging Assessment will follow (please note this is fully booked, from our original March date which was cancelled due to the snow).
