The DDBSA Judges' Education Committee diligently educates AKC judges on the AKC Dogue de Bordeaux Breed Standard. Seminars are conducted to provide both practical and theoretical knowledge. The committee intends for judges to apply this knowledge in the conformation ring leading to the promotion of correct breed type, temperament, and conformation.


Kennel clubs, Dog Judges Associations, Show Clusters, Study Groups, and any other organization interested in learning about our magnificent breed and would like to host a Dogue de Bordeaux Seminar/Workshop are welcome and encouraged to contact us.
