JUDGES EDUCATION

Breed Specific Judging Seminars

The Club endeavours to run Breed Specific Judging Seminars every year which are open to all and are highly recommended to anyone wishing to judge Shar Pei. They are normally held in the Midlands, so very convenient to get to.

If you are interested in attending one, please submit your details to the Secretary who will register your details and send you all the relevant information.

Alternatively, once all details have been announced, you can download the information letter and Booking Form and send them to the Secretary.

Judging List and criteria

Below is our judging list criteria.  You can download a copy of this and the judging list application form using the buttons below.

The Judging lists will be reviewed and amended at each committee meeting and can be submitted at any time.

 

The list will comprise of five sub lists: Al, A2, A3, B & C, defined as follows:

 

Al LIST Lists those persons who have previously been approved by the Kennel Club to award Challenge Certificates in the breed and have completed their first appointment and who have the support of the Club.

 

A2 LIST Lists those persons who fulfil the requirements for the A3 List and who have been assessed in accordance with Kennel Club requirements and accepted by the Kennel Club for inclusion on the A2 List and have the support of the Club.

 

A3 LIST Lists those persons who have achieved those qualifications set out hereunder, and accepted as suitable by the committee for recommendation to the Kennel Club to award Challenge Certificates in the breed.

 

B LIST Lists those persons who have met the minimum qualifications as set out hereunder and accepted by the committee to judge Shar-Pei at Open Show level and at Championship Shows without CC’s.

 

C LIST Lists aspirant judges who have shown an interest in the breed and have the support of the committee to judge Shar-Pei at Open and Limited Shows.

 

COMPILATION OF THE LIST

1. The published conditions/criteria for inclusion will be strictly adhered to; however where a case is borderline, an applicant’s future appointments may be taken into consideration. The decision as to whether these are adequate to balance any deficiencies will be determined by a committee vote with a two thirds majority of those present and voting being in favour.

2. Members and individuals may nominate names for inclusion on the list at any time. The application should be in writing, using the appropriate form obtainable from the Hon. Secretary, and returned to the Hon. Secretary. The relevant qualifications should be stated on the form. The onus for providing additional evidence for advancement on the list shall be the responsibility of the applicant.

3. Number of dogs judged. Absentees will be taken into account when calculating the number of classes actually judged and must be recorded by the applicant. Failure to do so will result in the application being returned.

4. The committee shall have the right to include on the list judges who, in their opinion, have exceptional qualifications, i.e. a foreign breed specialist; a non specialist with greater than average knowledge of the breed. In all these instances the nominee must gain a two-thirds majority vote of those present and voting, and with their agreement.

5. The committee shall reserve the right to remove, or relegate, a name from the list if it is considered that:

  • Their judging experience has not progressed sufficiently since being admitted to the list.

  • They have not undertaken any training offered since being admitted to the list.

 

NB: THE DECISION OF THE COMMITTEE IS FINAL.
