Judge Info - Sam Moss
Showdog.com Judge Since Wednesday, June 04, 2003
Retirement Announced 11/30/2007
Not very political. Moderate level of breed bias. 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 Sam Moss looks for.
|Top Neck and Back||Normal|

Only the top 25 are listed for the sake of brevity.
