Judge’s Education Program


The purpose of the American Bloodhound Club (ABC) Judge’s Education program is to educate and support individuals pursuing an AKC license to judge Bloodhounds. This is a collaborative effort with the American Kennel Club, and all ABC events must follow AKC guidelines.

The ABC offers a variety of Judge’s Education experiences, including:

Breed seminars
Hands-on examination
Ringside mentoring
Illustrated Standards

Individuals who are presenters/mentors are approved based on their experience and expertise in our breed.

See Become A Mentor/Presenter for guidelines and application.

The ABC supports only those educational events conducted by approved presenters/mentors. Seminars or mentoring done by anyone other than an approved ABC mentor may not be sanctioned by the ABC.
