Visit akc.org for information on all AKC approved judges: The AKC Searchable Judges Directory
The above link will take you to a list of people who have gone through the ESSFTA Field Trial Apprentice Program since 1998. We will make every effort to keep this list accurate and up to date. If you have any questions about the eligibility of a new judge, or a foreign judge who has never judged in the USA, please contact the ESSFTA Apprentice Judge Program Coordinator.
If you are an AKC licensed judge, and your information has been omitted from the AKC Judges Directory, or has recently changed, please contact:
Please include your judges number in the correspondence. Over the recent weeks, we have found many errors on the AKC website concerning judges information. Please take the time to check the site and correct any errors.
Note: Field trial judges must have judged a combination of 12 All-Age stakes between them. The AKC directory should be able to tell you how many championship stakes each have judged. Unfortunately, the AKC does not separate Cocker Trials from Springer Trials. If the judge is a new judge, or a foreign judge who has never judged in the USA, FT committees must ask if he/she has passed the requirements mandated by the ESSFTA as of 1998.
