Judges Education Department


The Judges Education Department provides support and educational experiences for current and prospective conformation judges. In addition we also provide guidance and educational tools to those individuals that are administrating seminars or other educational activities.

Educational programs such as the AKC Advanced Judges Institutes, Procedural Seminars and Judging Junior Showmanship are developed, coordinated and conducted by this department. In the items listed below you will find forms, criterion, templates, and guidelines on how to conduct seminars and other documents required by the American Kennel Club.

The Special Services Department assists Parent Clubs with Breed Standards. Requests for information and assistance regarding the revision of Breed Standards should be directed to Mari-Beth O'Neill, Assistant Vice President for Special Services, (919) 816-3594; mbo@akc.org.
