comingcoming

Welcome to the VIDJSG

 

Over 20 years ago, a group of like-minded individuals sought to increase their knowledge of the purebred dog. Meeting together to study breed standards, videos, visit breeders, and progressing to hosting weekend seminars, we have grown to become one of the country’s most active judges’ educational groups.

About VIDJSG

We became a regional study group of the Canadian Dog Judges Association when that Association was formed with the mandate to provide educational opportunities to aspiring conformation judges and promote conscientious and knowledgeable conformation dog judging.

Membership is open to licensed and aspiring conformation judges. All members must be in good standing with the Canadian Kennel Club and licensed judges must be members of the Canadian Dog Judges Association. “Aspiring judges” are defined as individuals who are within two years of meeting the requirements for an initial judging permit.

Events & Updates

Here we will post information about upcoming seminars and other items of interest to the purebred fancy.
