We will offer Judges’ Education at the National Specialty on Thursday, September 7, 2017. We will begin promptly at 9 a.m. (check-in begins at 8:30 a.m.) at the Purina herding grounds for a herding demonstration and then we will move to the Purina Event Center for the formal program which includes lecture, Q & A and hands-on evaluation of dogs. Participation will be reported to AKC.
The presenter will be Breeder-Specialist judge and BCSA Judges’ Education Chair, Kelly Whiteman. If you are a judge, have ever thought about someday becoming a judge, or if you just want to learn more about our revised breed standard and what judges are looking for, you are welcome to attend. Ringside mentoring with a variety of Qualified mentors will be available Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
The cost is $55 for BCSA members and $65 for non-members. It includes educational materials, lunch and a National Specialty Catalog. Pre-registration is required (please use the form below and pay online via PayPal). The deadline is August 12, 2017. If you have any questions, you can email Kelly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
