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.

Did you know?
The figure 8 exercise requires the team to heel in a figure 8 pattern either on or off leash. Generally two of the ring stewards will assist the judge with this exercise by acting as "posts", standing 8 feet apart, that the team walks around to form the loops of the figure 8.
