Participaction in Educating - Judging 101 Seminar

On Saturday, the Eastern Ontario Judge's Study Group held a seminar for aspiring CKC judges, and we were invited to bring several of our dogs for the afternoon part that entailed how to go over a dog on the table and to properly measure such dogs as shelties. John & Joy Hodgkinson were the organizers for this 2 day event, with all breed judges Charles & Letitia Bett presenting the 1st part on what it takes to get started.

Mary-Anne & I spent most of Friday, preparing 4 dogs for them to use. At least we got 3 of our kennel dogs spring cleaned!

Patiently waiting was our Ch Shelamo's Sugar Shack (foreground), our 2 seniors Ch Shelamo Burleigh Casino Rama CGN (Blue Merle) and BPIS Am/Cdn Ch Shelamo's Prospector (in the background).
And then there was "Izzi", who is a girl just shy of 13" I borrowed from a client of mine for them to experience measuring the low end of our standard.
Here is "Rocky" being used to explain how to go over a dog.
Everyone watched as Charles showed the proper way of measuring. Mary-Anne is in the foreground with the 2nd dog for them to practice on.
At the end of the seminar we gathered at our place for dinner. On the far left we had an aspiring judge that came all the way from BC and our breeder friends of Graloch joined us. The "Master Chef", husband Mike, stayed behind and prepared a lovely roast beef dinner. That is why he is missing in this picture .... he's in the kitchen serving up the main course!And Charles, uncorking the bottle of wine! You can do it Charlie! It was a good gathering with good conversation.

From my experience with him, I would have thought it would have been Rocky doing the educating.
