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.
