Judge Info - Peter Payne
Showdog.com Judge Since Saturday, February 7, 2009
Retirement Announced 7/31/2009
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 dogs should be compared to how good they are vs the rest of their breed rather than overall quality vs all dogs.
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 Peter Payne looks for.
|Top Neck and Back||Very High|
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. Peter Payne has been known to prefer the following handlers.
|16||Marry Anne Bryant|
Only the top 25 are listed for the sake of brevity.
