Kennel Club Eye for a Dog Assessment - 19 and 20 February 2019

Product Description

A key component of the Judges Competency Framework is the ‘Eye for a Dog’ assessment for judges wishing to progress to JCF Level 4 in additional breeds under the JCF system. An assessment will be run on 19 and 20 February 2019 at the Kennel Club Building, Stoneleigh Park and is open to all judges who have previously awarded Challenge Certificates to at least one breed.


Please note that candidates who were unsuccessful at the April 2018 assessment are not eligible to attend this assessment. A separate assessment is being hosted by the Scottish Kennel Club on 31 March at Carluke and candidates wishing to take this assessment should contact the Scottish Kennel Club.


The purpose of the assessment is to assess the candidate’s ability to recognise salient points of construction and movement in a non-breed specific way, from a selection of nine dogs across all the groups with various sizes and coat types. In addition, the candidate’s approach and professionalism to assessing the nine breeds will be taken into consideration for marking purposes.

For queries relating to eligibility please contact

Please note that the KC is unable to offer refunds for candidates who are unable to attend on the day. The KC will send final details the week before the assessment via email.
