The Breed Council maintains the judging lists A1, A2, A3 & B
Applications for the judging lists must be sent to the Breed Council Secretary for the Scrutineers to check on behalf of the Judges Sub-Committee, except Specialist applications for the B list which must go to a Boxer Breed Club Secretary of their choice for approval in the first instance. They in turn will then forward the application to the Breed Council Secretary for the Scrutineers to check.
After checking the A3 applications they will go out to the clubs and those given a majority approval will then go on to the A3 list, only then can judges accept appointments.
For A2 application a separate form obtained from the Breed Council Secretary will be sent to the Kennel Club, once filled in and returned to the Breed Council Secretary by the applicant. When approved by the Kennel Club this will be published in the Kennel Gazette.  
JUDGES MUST HAVE BEEN APPROVED FOR THE APPROPRIATE LIST BEFORE ACCEPTING ANY APPOINTMENT.
Judges ignoring Breed Council Rules may be penalised by Breed Council. The A1, A2 and A3 lists will be reviewed, updated at the Judges Sub-Committee before being sent to the KC.

  • Any judge who holds a ‘Credit’ for Boxers under the Kennel Club’s Judge’s Development Programme only needs to complete half the specified criteria
