Date:  March 2022

Effective July 1, 2022, the Yakutian Laika will be eligible to compete as a Listed Breed in Group 3 (Working).

In accordance with CKC policy, CKC All Breed Judges and Breed/Group Judges that are licensed or on a permit to judge breeds in Group 3 will be required to successfully complete an Open Book Test for this new breed prior to being approved to judge it.

The Open Book Test for the Yakutian Laika is now available on the CKC website at under the Events tab, then CKC Breed Standards, Conformation Open Book Tests.  Please print the test, complete it, and mail or e-mail it to Head Office, as designated below, by June 30, 2022.

If you are an All Breed Judge then you must complete the test.  If you are licensed to judge all breeds in Group 3 (but not an All Breed Judge), you must complete the test.  If you are a permit judge for all breeds in Group 3, you must complete the test.  If you are a judge on permit for half of Group 3, and you are licensed for the other half of the group, then you must complete the test.  If you are a permit judge for only half of Group 3, and you are not licensed for the other half, then you are not required to write the test at this time.

The Breed Standard will be available online with the Open Book Tests.  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the staff in the Event Planning Department in Shows and Trials.

In the meantime, we will continue to approve Judging Panels for events after July 1st.  If the Judging Panel that has been submitted to Head Office does not include this breed, we will communicate with the club to assign the breed to a judge on the judging panel.

Lastly, please note that in accordance with CKC policy, copy below, judges will have until October 31, 2022, to complete the Open Book Tests without being assessed any fees.

When a new breed is approved by the Board, conformation judges will be provided with a 6 month period to write an Open Book Test for that breed, after which, an administrative fee as set by the Board will be implemented.”
