SEMINAR for JUDGES

  • The following slides set out my own priorities for judging Saint Bernard dogs  according to the requirements of the FCI standard adopted by KUSA.
  • When judging according to another standard, I would establish the priorities according to the requirements of that relevant standard.
  • In South Africa, we use the FCI standard, and therefore anybody judging Saints in South Africa should know and use the FCI standard.
  • By following the HALLMARKS set out in the following slides, any competent judge could reach an educated, up-to-date and acceptable judging result.
  • IMPORTANT NOTES
  • All the Hallmarks are exact extracts from the FCI standard. Each extract is printed in PURPLE. Additional comments that are printed in RED are my own opinion and are simply provided for clarification.
  • Please have an updated copy of the FCI standard available . As a judge you should know the standard . The FCI Standard on this site has all the Hallmarks already highlighted and you are welcome to print a copy.
