Judges in Canada are critical to our dog/handler success in International Agility through their course design. But the course on any given weekend are only as good/challenging/safe/flowing/relevant as the judge who designs them. Host clubs are encouraged to use judges who have handled multiple size/breeds/speed of dogs; who seek out continuing education opportunities, especially in the area of course design; and who judge various organizations.
The CAN JUDGE page shows bios of judges, sample courses where the judges have chosen to include them, and a list of the organizations that they judge for. It can be a great resource for host clubs!
