Candidates for inclusion on the judging list should be nominated on a form which must state the nominee’s qualifications. Candidates must obtain a majority vote from the Tibetan Spaniel Association before their name can be added to the appropriate judging list. Submission of a completed form does not therefore ensure the applicant’s inclusion on the Tibetan Spaniel Association’s lists.
Judging lists are valid for one year at a time and inclusion in one year does not necessarily ensure inclusion in future years.

Are you interested in judging Tibetan Spaniels or do you want some more in-depth information on how to understand the Tibetan Spaniel breed standard?

The Kennel Club provides access to a learning 'Academy'. Here you will find a number of breed specific films aimed at increasing your knowledge of Tibetan Spaniels, we believe this is an invaluable resource and would encourage you to have a look if you are serious about understanding what traits a Tibetan Spaniel has and how they are put together.

In order to access the information, you need to go to https://www.thekennelclub.org.uk/academy/ and you will be prompted to log in to your account. If you don't have a KC account it is really easy and free to create one. Once you have landed at the Academy page (it is also available from your 'My Account' page) then head on over to the 'Breed Specific Films' section and then scroll down to the Tibetan Spaniel section. Once you are there, follow the instructions to view all the videos.

We hope you enjoy the information that is presented and find it really useful.
