Categories and breed groups

In 2016 FIFe introduced the new categories 1, 2, 3 and 4 at shows. As a result of proposals carried by the General Assembly 2016, FIFe will have a new judges training programme adjusted to these new categories as from 2017. A temporary breed training programme comes into effect enabling judges who qualified before 1st of January 2017 to adjust their competence to fully suit the categories 1 and/or 4 (→ Judges Rules Annex 3). To support the transition four so-called breed groups have been established:
● A = EXO, PER
● B = RAG, SBI, TUV
● C = ABY, CRX, DRX, DSP, GRX, JBT, RUS, SOM, SPH
● D = BAL, OLH, OSH, PEB, SIA.
