Morphology Judge (conformation)
We are excited to welcome licensed Club les Amis du Beauceron (CAB) judge Mme Katerine
Couteau. Mme Couteau has been involved in the breed since 1965, and started breeding in 1977. She first became a Beauceron judge in the 1980’s, and has since judged the breed at many prestigious events including the World Dog Show, and several Best Male and Best Female competition at the Nationale d’Elevage (the French Beauceron National Specialty). Mme Couteau has held numerous positions within the French breed club, including President. We are honored to have her come and judge our breed this year and we are equally excited that she will be directly working with our judges and breeders to teach the finer points of the breed and how our dogs should be evaluated.
We are equally excited to welcome CAB licensed temperament judge M Guy Bonnefoy. M Bonnefoy has been a member of the CAB since 1980 and a Beauceron Temperament Judge for the CAB since 1983. He has been selected to judge the Nationale d’Elevage on numerous occasions as well as many Regional Specialties. He has held various positions within the CAB including Président de la Commission d’élevage, Membre de la Commission d’Utilisation, and has been a CAB Committee Director since 1992. He has owned and bred numerous French Champions and Vice-Champions as well as dogs who have achieved titles in Ring, Tracking, Herding, Obedience, Agility and Search and Rescue dogs serving their communities throughout Europe.

In-ring mentoring for AKC judges and breed seminars will be offered for those who are interested. Join us for this momentous occasion to see what makes this breed so special and unique.
