Curly Coated Retriever Judges Education

CCRCA approved seminars for judges wishing to become approved by the AKC to judge the Curly Coated Retriever are scheduled at each yearly National Specialty. All prospective judges of the breed are encouraged to attend our National Specialty and the accompanied field events. This is the only time judges have the opportunity to view large numbers of Curly Coated Retrievers in both the show ring and demonstrating their working ability in field events.
