Retirement Announced 6/30/2012
Doesn't like using the same breeds that win every other show for BIS. Not very political. Doesn't show a breed bias at all. Thinks a dog needs to earn its championship before it should even be considered for best of breed.

Each judge has a preference for certain handlers. These preferences may be based on past experiences, showing style, or just plain old dirty politics. This preference is completely separate from the quality of the exhibitor, which DOES come into play in the show ring. Dwight James has been known to prefer the following handlers.
Only the top 25 are listed for the sake of brevity.
