Judge Info - Alice Wise

Showdog.com Judge Since Friday, December 31, 2010
Retirement Announced 1/31/2014

Not very political. Low level of breed bias. 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.
