Judge Info - Gwendolyn Gibbons

Showdog.com Judge Since Saturday, March 31, 2012
Retirement Announced 7/31/2012

Has a tendency to use dogs handled by certain handlers but isn't overt in it. 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.
