Dachshund Club Breed Seminar and A2 Assessment – Saturday 19th July 2014

The Dachshund Club will be holding a Breed Seminar and A2 Assessment on Saturday 19th July 2014.

Discover_Dogs_Nov_2012The Seminar aims to provide an opportunity to learn about Dachshunds, whatever your current knowledge and experience. The speakers will be Jeff Crawford (Voryn) and Jeff Horswell (Drakesleat) who will talk about the Breed Standard and act as assessors.

For those who meet the UK Dachshund Clubs’ criteria (*), there will be an opportunity to be assessed and, if successful, have your name put forward for the Kennel Club/ UK Dachshund Breed Council A2 Judging List when all the other relevant criteria have been met. The assessments will take place in the afternoon and those people attending just the seminar may stay to watch, if they wish.

All participants can choose to sit the Breed Council’s Written Assessment Paper which forms part of the A2 approval criteria. The Written Paper will be available during the afternoon and there is a Pass Mark of 70%.

The venue is Overseal Village Hall, Overseal, Swadlincote, Derbyshire, DE12 6NF. This is easy to find, just off the M42/A42 and is a venue already used for dog club events.

Lunch, plus morning and afternoon refreshments, are included in the ticket price of £25 for those who wish to be assessed, or £20 for those who do not wish to be assessed.

The Seminar starts at 10:00, with coffee being served from 09:30.
