   The FCI Judge Education: 

   The education as a judge has taken over 6 years as one has to show success as a breeder, exhibitor and be active in the breed club. In addition one has to be interviewed and tested by experienced judges, approved by the breed club, go through weekends of schooling about anatomy, genetics, dog´s physiology, etc. Then you are ready to function as a student judge. You have to function as a student judge for 6-9 shows our breeds (depending on the amount of entered dogs of your breeds), under three different judges who teach you and give you grades. You must also work three times as the chief of the ring and three times as a writer of the judgements. If you've gotten this far, you will receive an "Aspirant"-status. As the last procedure is passing of the practical - judging and theoretical tests. If you pass this process, the Board of Kennel Club has to approve the candidate as the National and later the FCI Judge. I started to be the SKJ - FCI judge on April 1st, 2006.

Until today, I am still the specialist for all 4 Swiss Mountain Dog breeds - the International FCI Judge.
