Judge Info - Jimmy James

Showdog.com Judge Since Thursday, June 12, 2003
Retirement Announced 6/30/2008

Shows a slight bias toward bitches over dogs. 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.

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.
