I have been trying to work my way around the Kennel club academy and I have done now 5 online seminars, watched videos, then took exam at the end. I have passed 4 and I now have to do the final one, but I shall leave it a day or two now before I complete the final one. It Kinda makes my brain work and remember all the rules and regulations. I have printed the certificates of passing. Going through now the judging framework, and all I need to do is accept a judging appointment with a good entry with Vizsla and ask for an k c assessor to come and watch my judging. They're are various stages and to be honest this new system is a bit of a puzzle. Thankfully Ive got good friends who are telling me how it's done now. But it will take a while to sink in I think.
I have already passed the breed assessment day for Vizsla and Bracco Italiano. I guess I just need to sort out now the next stages and progress to judge aiming towards championship shows. I have been told I am able to judge breed open shows now. I have so far judged breeds at a general open show, which means all breeds shown. Now I am able to do a breed club. Its very confusing lol.
It does us good when we breed dogs to have understanding of the breed standard. To learn from mentors. Anyone can breed a dog, but it doesn't mean they should. On the Academy now there are breeding seminars people can look at. Also they. now feature breeds where breed specialists give a talk on their breed and what we should be looking at. I. just watched the German Short Haired Pointer seminar. There is also Weimaraner on there which I will watch another evening. Breeding dogs we also study dogs, study other breeds.
I thrive on continued learning with animals as I love the whole aspect of it all.
