Judge Info - Abigail Cave
Showdog.com Judge Since Tuesday, December 31, 2013
Retirement Announced 3/31/2014
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 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 Abigail Cave looks for.
|Top Neck and Back||Very Low|
Each judge has a preference for certain handlers. These preferences may be based on past experiences, showing style, or just plain old dirty politics. This preference is completely separate from the quality of the exhibitor, which DOES come into play in the show ring. Abigail Cave has been known to prefer the following handlers.
Only the top 25 are listed for the sake of brevity.
