Jaquenetta German Shepherd Dogs
FROM THE SOUTH WEST. JEAN HISCOX.
Congratulations to John and Pauline on Veneze Ellie gaining SG1 at the Belgium Sieger. There is a lovely photo of John posing on the podium with Ellie on photographer Guus Kersemakers website, could his smile be any wider?
I had thought the SWGSDC was a member club of the GSD Breed Council, and assumed that all GSD Breed Council member clubs followed the judges’ criteria as set out by the Breed Council panel and the Educational Working Party. And that the markers of the examination papers and the assessors of the judging candidates who had passed the written exam were the members of the E.W.P. Apparently this is not so, the SWGSDC judging criteria for inclusion on their A2 list differs from the Breed Council not only on the exam and assessments, but also on other parts, for example the number of dogs to be judged which is 175, the Breed Council is 250 dogs. I can see now that the SWGSDC is not a fast track just a different track. Now that the SWGSDC has led the way forward for several years and shown that any Breed Club can set up their own exams and assessments and judging criteria along KC guidelines, and that this is accepted by the Kennel Club as I know people that have gone through the SWGSDC system and have now judged the Breed at championship shows, perhaps more Breed Clubs will do the same. I do agree with Gill that we need more educational activities for people wishing to learn about the breed.
