HVS Judges Selection Process
The Hungarian Vizsla Society has a selection panel for choosing judges who are knowledgeable in the breed, whether breed specialists or non-breed specialists, with the integrity to judge without fear or favour.
Our Selection Panel consists of experienced members who work closely with our Judging list maintainers, with the aim of selecting judges for our Open shows and Special Awards Classes who need the numbers to progress towards CC status and who have the support of the HVS. Our Championship show judges are required to have a gap of at least 2 years since their last appointment in the breed. Irrespective of the level of show, every member of the selection panel puts forward names for consideration & every name is discussed and voted on by the whole panel.
As has been the case since our first ever shows, members of the HVS Committee & Show Sub-committee are permitted to enter and handle their own or others dogs under any judge officiating at our shows, our only stipulation being that lunch is not taken at the same time as the judge if showing/handling post-lunch.
