Judge Info - Charles Britton

Showdog.com Judge Since Monday, August 31, 2015
Retirement Announced 12/31/2016

Shows a slight bias toward bitches over dogs. Doesn't like using the same breeds that win every other show for BIS. Not political at all. Relatively high 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.
