The Pumi will be entering the Herding Group on July 1, 2016, and those judges who currently judge all the breeds in the Herding Group will automatically be able to judge the Pumi (after passing the open book test).
We sincerely hope that judges will avail themselves of our upcoming seminars, or if that’s not possible, the study material that can be downloaded below. If your judges group would be interested in a presentation, please contact Chris Levy, Judges Education Chair.
The club members are very concerned that the Pumi coat will be improperly prepared by handlers who don’t understand this type of coat. Please review The Pumi Coat and Its Grooming to understand how the coat should be presented in the ring.
In conjunction with Pumifest, the National Specialty (September 21-24, 2017)
(exact date/time TBD, but will be the 22nd or 23rd)
Seminar and Hands-on Workshop
