Judge Info - Jeff Dunbar

Showdog.com Judge Since Sunday, September 30, 2012

Doesn't like using the same breeds that win every other show for BIS. Not very political. Relatively high level of breed bias. Thinks a dog needs to earn its championship before it should even be considered for best of breed.
