The Italian Greyhound Judges Requirements as set out by the Kennel Club in February 2020. From 1 January 2021, no one can judge unless they meet JEP level 1 requirements (existing CC judges excluded). The exception to this is where a valid contract was in place before the 24th February 2020 press announcement and the appointment complies with Kennel Club Regulation F(1)20.b.

Edited 21st August 2023: JEP Level 1 and Level 2 criteria has been adjusted in accordance with the Kennel Club’s Press Release on the 21st August 2023, announcing changes which have been introduced as a result of feedback from Accredited Trainers. Please note that this change applies from shows held from 1 January 2024 and from judging contracts signed from the 21st August 2023. Existing CC judges are exempt from this requirement.

To be able to judge more than three classes of a breed (four if a puppy class is scheduled) at any show or any number of classes at a championship show without CCs, a judge must be listed on a breed club/council B list or above or meet JEP level 2 requirements. All breeds now have the same class number criteria.

The following guide applies specifically to judging Italian Greyhounds under the Judges Education Program. You can read the general guideline on the Judges Education Program here.
