Showdog.com Judge Since Saturday, October 31, 2015
Retirement Announced 6/30/2017

Has a tendency to use dogs handled by certain handlers but isn't overt in it. Moderate level of breed bias. Has a tendency to like dogs the more often they're seen. 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.
