The British Ragdoll Cat Club run two Teach-ins and Seminars per year. Anyone with an interest in breeding or showing, or even a more general interest in Ragdolls is welcome. We will bring you news of the dates for future seminars shortly, to enable you to plan ahead.
Tea and coffee will be supplied throughout the day and if you require lunch please bring a packed lunch. The committee reserves the right to cancel a function should there be insufficient interest.
The Teach-ins & Seminars are primarily for new and novice breeders when we will focus on good husbandry and preparing for your first litter of kittens, basic genetics and breeding practices.
We will examine the Ragdoll Breeding Policy and what to look for in a kitten with show and breeding potential, how to predict which patterns and colours of Ragdolls can be produced, and how to select a compatible pedigree.
During the afternoon session breeders will have the opportunity to test their skills in assessing the cats and kittens on exhibition.
Breeders should be aware that once you become a Probationary Breeder with the Club you will be expected to attend an Advanced Seminar the following year, after which your name will be added to the full Registered Breeder’s list.
Breeders who have previously attended a basic Teach-in need only come in the afternoon , but will be very welcome to come for the whole day if you would like to since no two seminars are identical, and may of our members who regularly attend comment on how much they learn each time they attend.
