Judging Seminar – Friday 17th November – 7pm

Back to Basics Judging Seminar on Friday 17th November
At Bridestowe Village Hall – EX20 4EW…..7pm prompt….will include refreshments….

Okehampton & District CS are pleased to host this evening with guest speaker……Gareth Lawler, breeder of 10 UK Sh Ch English Springer Spaniels, Int Ch show judge of ESS WSS and Cocker Spaniels, he is one of very few UK judges who have had the honour of judging ESSC of Sweden TWICE, judging main breed specialty and spaniel shows in Finland, Czech Republic, Denmark Norway, Netherlands and Australia. Gareth has also spoken at two International ESS Symposia, in Stockholm and Helsinki.
A former lecturer in Science and Animal Management, he has arranged and spoken at many educational events for English Springer Spaniels, forming part of a small team delivering seminars and A3 assessments. Gareth is currently writing the new English Springer Spaniel book.
With his educational training Gareth is a firm believer in ‘facilitation of learning’ as opposed to teaching, and puts huge emphasis on the mentoring of those wishing to learn about both dogs in general and specific breeds.
We hope this presentation will give a small insight into the wonderful world of show dogs and the basics of judging.

So you want to be a judge? Why? How? What do we need to be aware of? form to function across the various sub groups. Why do retrieving gundogs rely on correct front assembly so heavily? Galloping breeds vs trotting and stamina breeds…..how does their construction vary? Why are breed specific feet so important? Breed specific Gait is critical. What does movement tell you about construction? Should we place more emphasis on away and back, or profile gait? What is a head breed? moderation vs exaggeration Let’s go back to basics!
How do we write Critiques?
