Judge Info - Daniel Washington
Showdog.com Judge Since Thursday, October 31, 2013
Retirement Announced 1/31/2014
Has a tendency to use dogs handled by certain handlers but isn't overt in it. Doesn't show a breed bias at all. 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.
