Judges Study Guide

No single written guide is ever comprehensive enough to be the only learning tool utilized in preparation for judging a new breed. We urge you to seek other educational opportunities to broaden your base knowledge and to see and examine as many of the breed as possible. Study Guides may be considered as educational tools to be used to enhance your knowledge; they will not replace seminars and educational components on an application.

Mentor Lists

Parent Clubs determine the requirements for the Parent Club approved mentors. Not all Parent Clubs have supplied a mentor list.
