Judge Info - Pat Price

Showdog.com Judge Since Sunday, June 1, 2003
Retirement Announced 9/30/2011

Doesn't like using the same breeds that win every other show for BIS. Has a tendency to use dogs handled by certain handlers but isn't overt in it. Moderate level of breed bias. Thinks a dog needs to earn its championship before it should even be considered for best of breed.

Judges are generally certified to judge one or several breeds, usually in the same group, but a few "all-breed" judges have the training and experience to judge large numbers of breeds.
