The East Anglian Collie Association produces 3 Judges’ lists, for both Rough & Smooth
Collies. Separate A, B & C lists are compiled for both breed specialists and non-
The EACA’s ‘C’ Lists are for aspiring judges who have shown an interest in judging Collies, whether Rough and/or Smooth, but have yet to acquire the experience and/or qualifications necessary for elevation to our ‘B’ Lists. Aspiring judges may have already acquired limited judging experience at Open and Limited Shows.
Those listed on our ‘C’ lists are able to officiate at Open or Limited Shows where 3 classes of the breed are scheduled (4 classes if a Puppy class is scheduled). The EACA will also support these judges when asked to judge the Special Award Classes at Breed Club Shows.
for Rough & Smooth Collies:
Judges are advised to check out their breed’s area on the kc’s web site at regular intervals, as Championship Show judges are now required to complete a health monitoring form after each CC appointment.
KC to extend the period between CC judging appointments:
As from 1st January 2018, the
KC will extend the minimum period of time between
CC judging appointments
(to the same sex and breed),
From 12 to 18 months.
The KC’s ‘Find A Judge’ service, lists all championship show judges together with the number of shows they have judged, and their entries.
In grateful appreciation for their many years of dedicated service to the Collie and the East Anglian Collie Association, we maintain a list of those Breed Specialist judges, both Rough and Smooth, who have either retired or are sadly no longer with us.
