A Breed Seminar and three opportunities for ringside mentoring are offered during Nationals Week to individuals seeking AKC approval to judge Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. For more information on the ACKCSC Judges Education Program: www.ackcsc.org/index.php/education/judges-education
The ACKCSC Approved Breed Seminar meets the requirements as one (1) component toward Judge’s Education. This seminar provides history, form and function of the breed, and an in-depth analysis of the Breed Standard. Our presentation is 90 minutes in length with additional time allowed for questions and answers. We try to have at least one example of each of the four colors of Cavaliers present for illustration and examination. Participants receive a copy of our illustrated Breed Guide, an excellent reference for anyone judging the breed. Light food and beverages included.
Date: Monday, April 16
Time: 3:00 pm
Ringside observation experiences are offered on Tuesday (Dogs), Wednesday (Bitches) and Thursday (Best of Breed). A special section is reserved ring-side for our aspiring judges to ensure you get a great view of table examinations and on-the-go movement. You will observe judging with Approved Breed Mentors who can answer questions and share insights about the competition.
Dates: Tuesday, April 17 – Thursday, April 19
Eligibility: Licensed and Provisional Judges only
