Judge Info - Pat Price

Showdog.com Judge Since Sunday, June 01, 2003
Retirement Announced 9/30/2011

Doesn't like using the same breeds that win every other show for BIS. Has a tendency to use dogs handled by certain handlers but isn't overt in it. Moderate level of breed bias. Thinks a dog needs to earn its championship before it should even be considered for best of breed.

A conformation dog show is not a comparison of one dog to another but a comparison of each dog to a judge's mental image of the ideal breed type as outlined in the individual breed's breed standard.
