Judge Info - Cameron Radcliffe

Showdog.com Judge Since Friday, February 29, 2008
Retirement Announced 10/31/2008

Doesn't like using the same breeds that win every other show for BIS. 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 Cameron Radcliffe looks for.

Trait Importance
Head Low
Forequarter Very Low
Hindquarter High
Gait Normal
Top Neck and Back Low
Coat Low
Size/Height Normal
Feet High

Did you know?
The sit for exam is a modified version of the Stand for Exam. It is generally used in novice level classes and requires the handler to order the dog to sit and then to move away from the dog the length of the leash. The judge will then approach the dog and pet the dog's head.
