The Schipperke Club are pleased to announce that they will be holding a Breed Appreciation Day held in line with the new Judges Competency Framework (JCF). The day is open to all.

All elements of the standard will be covered, and there will be live exhibits. The exam will be before lunch.

The afternoon session will include hands-on with opportunities for mentoring if required.
