Judges Educational Programme (JEP)

The Royal Kennel Club Board has approved amendments to the Judges Educational Programme (Breed Shows) Level 1 and Level 2 criteria. These amendments will come into effect for shows held on or after 1 January 2024 and apply to judges signing contracts from 21 August 2023. Existing CC judges are exempt from this requirement.

All judges must adhere to the Level 1 and Level 2 Criteria’s as follows:

Level 1
  • Minimum of five years proven interest in pedigree dogs.
  • Attend a Conformation and Movement seminar hosted by a Royal Kennel Club Accredited Trainer
  • Complete a minimum of two full-day stewarding appointments
  • Attend a Requirements of a Dog Show Judge Seminar and pass associated exam.
  • Pass the Points of a Dog Assessment conducted by a Kennel Club Accredited Trainer

Previously it was a requirement that passing the Points of a Dog Assessment and Requirements of a Dog Show Judge exam was part of JEP Level 2 criteria.

The Scottish Cavalier Club Judges List Update

Current and Aspiring Judges

We will soon be appointing judges for future shows, so it would be very helpful if you could update us with the judging that you have accomplished, to make sure we have you in the correct category.

If you are on A3,B or C lists and follow the traditional route or the new JCF route, we need to know the experience/level you have achieved, which seminars etc. you have attended, how much stewarding and judging you have done.

Thank you for your help.
