Judging Lists  

How these lists are compiled

Each breed club asks potential judges to complete a form to collect information on judging experience, seminars attended, successes in the show ring - stud book numbers. The Club Secretary checks the form against the checklist to ensure the judge meets the criteria for the list they are being proposed for.
The forms are reviewed by a sub committee, members of which must be 75% Championship show judges. Judges are then put forward to the Labrador Breed Council.

For A1 & A3 lists information on each judge is circulated to each club and votes are taken in the club sub committee. The Breed club representatives are mandated to vote on each judge at the annual LBC meeting.

For B & C lists Clubs propose judges who are in the opinion of the sub committee are suitable to judge at Open Show level and if they meet the criteria names & judging forms are sent to secretary of LBC for inclusion on the appropriate list.

Lists are compiled by the Secretary of the LBC and posted on this website thus being accessible to all canine societies & clubs. They run from May to the end of April the next year.
