The Kennel Club requires all breeds to appoint one person as a Breed Education Coordinator. The role of this person is to liaise between the KC and each of the clubs for that breed: many breeds have more than one club but there can only be one BEC per breed. The BEC is responsible for overseeing the breed’s programme for educating its judges under the Judges Competency Framework (JCF) and for all other breed educational opportunities, i.e. breed appreciation days, multiple-choice breed standard exam, mentors, observers, as well as the assessors and exhibits for the subsequent Kennel Club-organised breed competence assessments.

The BEC for the Portuguese Podengo is Mr. Jeff Horswell - firstname.lastname@example.org
Shows would be impossible without the time and effort that judges bring to them, not to mention the hundreds and hundreds of stewards, organisers and helpers who make shows up and down the country so successful. The Club would like to put on record its thanks to everyone who gives their time and energy to do this.
In accordance with Kennel Club rules, we have our own Judges List. Criteria for inclusion on the list and an application form can be downloaded from the link below.
