ACCREDITED TRAINERS FOR RALLY NEEDED FOR JUDGES’ TRAINING PROGRAM

Wednesday, May 23, 2018 - Posted by KC Press Release, in General



The Kennel Club is calling for anyone interested in becoming a Rally Accredited Trainer for the judges’ training programme to get in touch.

This judges’ training programme has been developed over a period of time and follows the requirements already in place for those involved in judging other canine activities. It underlines the Kennel Club’s commitment to maintaining and improving the standard of judges and judging at official Kennel Club licensed events and, in so doing, ensures the quality of dogs and the value of awards they receive at these events.

As part of the training programme, the Kennel Club has a number of Accredited Trainers for each discipline, who are responsible for delivering each seminar and conducting the examination. All of the Accredited Trainers are established judges of long standing and have attended training and assessment sessions prior to their appointment in order to prove their own knowledge and competence in delivering the seminar syllabus. There is a good geographical spread of trainers to ensure that each area of the country is covered to minimise distances for those attending seminars.

The Kennel Club is now inviting applications from interested parties who would like to be considered for the position of Rally Accredited Trainer. Any candidates interested in applying need to meet the following criteria:

  • Three or more years of regular judging experience.
  • Be eligible to judge Level 6.
  • Good presentation and teaching skills are essential.
  • Have attended and passed the exam for the Rally Regulations and Judging Procedure seminar and attended the Practical Seminar.
  • A willingness to travel to deliver seminars.

Those interested should send their applications to the Working Dog Activities Team, The Kennel Club, Clarges Street, London W1J 8AB or via email to rally@thekennelclub.org.uk by Friday 22nd June 2018.

Assessments for all applicants will take place on 10th July 2018 at the Kennel Club Building, Stoneleigh. More information will be sent to those who apply.

Crufts Hall 5 (Obedience Ring) Surface

Monday, January 15, 2018 - Posted by Richard Kebble, in Crufts

Notice to all competitors in Obedience and Rally at Crufts 2018

We have been advised that the floor covering in the Obedience ring in Hall 5 this year will be an Artificial Lawn Surface, similar to that used in the main arena, instead of carpet. Some of you may well already have experience of this type of flooring. To be certain everyone is fully informed please pass this information on to anyone you know who may not see this. Our enquiries suggest that the best type of footwear is that without too much grip, soles with heavy treads may catch on the surface. Most types of everyday footwear should be fine.

YOUNG HANDLERS AT KENNEL CLUB DOG SHOWS

Friday, December 15, 2017 - Posted by KC Press Release, in General



Following a recent proposal made by the Show Executive Committee (SEC), the Kennel Club Board has agreed that, in line with its child protection policy, the following wording be added to all dog show schedules and entry forms, with effect from 1st January 2018:

‘Children under the age of 11 are the responsibility of and must be accompanied at all times by a parent or guardian’.

In introducing this new measure, the SEC was of the opinion that, by adding the above statement to the entry form and schedule, it will be clear that the parent or guardian would be responsible if the child was unable to control the dog being exhibited. However, the SEC was also of the view that it would remain the responsibility of the show society to ensure that it provided a safe environment for all people attending its show.

Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club Secretary, said: “The Kennel Club is keen that people attending any events run under its jurisdiction have a good time and feel safe. In relation to young handlers, it is very important that their parent or guardian takes responsibility for ensuring that any child under the age of 11 is in full control of any dog they are entrusted to handle. This new wording makes it abundantly clear that parents and guardians have their role to play when attending such events.”
