Judges List

Opportunity to Join Judging List
The judging lists for the Flatcoated Retriever Club of Scotland are compiled twice yearly by the Judges Sub Committee. This group is appointed by the main committee and are responsible for not only compiling the lists from new applications and updates from those already on the list, but for recommending any changes necessary to the criteria including those required to comply with Kennel Club rules. Three quarters of the members of the Judges Sub Committee are approved by the KC to award Challenge Certificates in the breed.

A recent change has been the agreement of the three Flatcoated Retriever Breed Clubs to offer new applicants the opportunity to have their details circulated to the other clubs for consideration under their criteria. The thinking behind this is to promote consistency within the various club lists and to cut down on the number of forms applicants have to complete if they wish to apply to all 3 clubs.

Copies of the criteria and Judges Questionnaire to apply to be considered for the Flatcoated Retriever Club of Scotland judges list are available to download below.
