Judge Info - Bobby Mcallister

Showdog.com Judge Since Saturday, July 31, 2010
Retirement Announced 12/31/2010

Shows a slight bias toward dogs over bitches. Actually prefers to see the owner of the dog handling it. Low 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.
