The Leonberger Club of America offers many resources to AKC judges seeking to further their education of the Leonberger breed. We invite you to make your education of the Leonberger breed a priority and attend a judge’s education seminar, invite an LCA mentor to join you ringside at your next Leonberger judging assignment, attend a regional and/or national club specialty when geographically accessible, or view our library of Judge’s Review videos.
You will find a warm and JEC-handson welcoming community at any Leonberger Club of America event. We also encourage you to seek out Leonbergers attending AKC shows and take a moment to go over the dogs informally. Our members will gladly spend time with you.
We have spent 25 years showing and breeding Leonbergers based on their FCI, European background from which the AKC Standard has been developed. In order to preserve our heritage, we ask you to look at the total dog, what they should be in form, type, temperament and structure.
The Leonberger breed entered the AKC Working Group in July of 2010. Our club has developed a custom presentation to train AKC Judges in the how to properly judge the Leonberger breed. The LCA schedules regularly Judge’s Education seminars and mentoring at shows and Judge’s organizations across the country.
