The Judges' Education section is intended to serve as an
educational tool for judges, breeders and exhibitors to help
form a correct image of the "perfect" Pomeranian and
to promote a better understanding of and appreciation for the
Breed Standard of the Pomeranian. We hope this site will serve
as a guide in interpreting that Standard.
Breeders and judges should both emphasize the positive.
Breeders have the responsibility to try to breed Pomeranians as
described by the Standard. Judges must find and place those dogs
that best represent the qualities called for in the Standard.
Breeders and Judges both must consider the whole dog, not
overemphasizing any one part. Reward the virtues and penalize
faults to the extent of the deviation from the ideal.
The American Pomeranian Club, Inc. is dedicated to
providing accurate educational material to judges, aspiring
judges and exhibitors.
We would like to welcome you to join us for Judges
Education at our National Specialty. There is no charge for the
judges seminar or ringside mentoring. Participants will receive a catalog, ring-side mentoring and a certificate of
completion. Go to National
Seminar for more information.
