There are also a few remaining places for our Breed Specific Seminar and Judges' Hands-on Assessment,
to be held on Saturday 31 October 2015 at Shenstone Village Hall, Lichfield WS14 0LT. The day
will comprise a Breed Talk and question-and-answer session in the morning presented by Aimee Davies
(Dachida), with a Judging Competence assessment in the afternoon, at a cost of £25.00 including
lunch. The assessment is aimed at those judges currently on a Chihuahua breed club B List who are
aspiring to progress on to the A3 list.
The morning breed presentation only, minus the afternoon hands-on assessment, is also open to those
interested in learning more about the breed, and will cost £15 including lunch.
Places will be limited in both cases. Application forms can be obtained from the Hon Secretary
(contact details above) or you can download a copy here to print out, complete and send in.
