Judging Seminar-how was it?

The first EFG Breed Specific Judges Seminar was held in fabulous Autumn weather & provisional feedback says everybody had a fabulous time; despite serious head scratching in some cases. The slightly different format, which all candidates were aware of, caused interest, exclamation, interest and, in the words of one candidate ” probably the most difficult seminar I’ve ever attended!” The applause in any event like this has to always go to the dogs and suddenly a line from the Breed Standard and an explanation from the presentation was¬†understood as the various Glen of Imaal Terriers present (aged from 2 years to 10) wagged their tails, yawned, sighed and, in one case, laid down for a sleep as they were repeatedly¬† gone over. The second round of “yeah, well done” has to be for the food. The EFG is always known for giving “a good do” and Sue, with the ladies, kept the standard as high as ever.

The assessors were totally on the ball: the Certificates and feedback letters will be posted out today!
