Breed Appreciation Day 2021 YSSC
In line with the Kennel Club Judges Education Programme (Breed Shows)
The Yorkshire Shetland Sheepdog Club Breed Appreciation Day with Subsequent Multiple Choice Exam will now be held at Grenoside Village Hall on the 14th August 2021 .
The day comprises of a breed talk aiming to provide or reinforce the basic knowledge to establish a Candidates/Judge’s understanding and appreciation of the breed, in order to take a subsequent Multiple Choice Breed Standard Exam (dependent on eligibility – see below*). Attending the Breed Appreciation Day and passing the Multiple Choice Breed Standard Exam forms part of the criteria that will enable the candidate to attain Level 2 Status. Subjects covered in the morning session will include a brief history of the breed, function of the breed and its correlation to its confirmation and movement and breed specifics. All elements of the standard will be covered, and there will be live exhibits for candidates to handle to see finer points of the Breed. The presentation of the Breed Standard is Open to All.
