Judge Info - Alice Wise
Showdog.com Judge Since Friday, December 31, 2010
Retirement Announced 1/31/2014
Not very political. Low level of breed bias. Thinks a dog needs to earn its championship before it should even be considered for best of breed. Thinks dogs should be compared to how good they are vs the rest of their breed rather than overall quality vs all dogs.
Each judge on ShowDog.Com gives a different amount of weight to each trait of the dogs that they judge in each show. Below is a table of which traits Alice Wise looks for.
|Top Neck and Back||Very Low|
