Judge Info - George Wilson

Showdog.com Judge Since Monday, July 31, 2017
Retirement Announced 11/30/2017

Doesn't like using the same breeds that win every other show for BIS. Actually prefers to see the owner of the dog handling it. Moderate level of breed bias. Has a tendency to like dogs the more often they're seen. Thinks a dog needs to earn its championship before it should even be considered for best of breed.

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.
