The CWCCA, Inc. is dedicated to the improvement
and betterment of all aspects of the Cardigan Welsh Corgi. As part of that commitment,
we have a small committee of dedicated breeders and judges who volunteer their time
to help new judges become better acquainted with this fascinating little dog.
The Judges Education Committee performs many valuable duties for AKC judges. The Committee
presents workshops for judges, answers questions and letters from judges, sends out
the Illustrated Standard to new judges, refers judges who are learning the breed to
Presenters and Mentors all around the country, trains Presenters and Mentors in methods
of presenting the breed to judges, and helps any other committee of the CWCCA as requested.
The Cardigan Judges Education Committee and Mentors urge you to read the articles we have provided here on judging Cardigan Welsh Corgis.
