NEW: Conformation and Movement Series

We have launched a new Conformation and Movement resource on the Kennel Club Academy. The resource acts as pre-learning and aims to complement and support the delivery of the seminars by Accredited Trainers and to enhance judges' educational experience. The Conformation and Movement Series is divided into seven easy-to-follow chapters. Users of the resource will be able to access it at their own time and convenience, as many times as they wish.

The Academy costs just £26 for one year's access to all of the Judges Education resources, including new resources that we continue to add over the next 12 months.
