Judge Info - Gerry Salazar
Showdog.com Judge Since Thursday, November 30, 2017
Retirement Announced 2/28/2018
Shows a slight bias toward bitches over dogs. Actually prefers to see the owner of the dog handling it. Low level of breed bias. Has a tendency to like dogs the more often they're seen. 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.
