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.
Each judge on ShowDog.Com gives a different amount of weight to each trait of the dogs that they judge in each show. Below is a table of which traits Pat Price looks for.
|Top Neck and Back||Low|
Each judge has a preference for certain handlers. These preferences may be based on past experiences, showing style, or just plain old dirty politics. This preference is completely separate from the quality of the exhibitor, which DOES come into play in the show ring. Pat Price has been known to prefer the following handlers.
Only the top 25 are listed for the sake of brevity.
