Judge Info - Linda Schubert

Showdog.com Judge Since Wednesday, December 31, 2014
Retirement Announced 6/30/2016

Shows a slight bias toward dogs over bitches. Not very political. 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.
