As we proceed in this process, please take some time to review the judges' biographies and historical selection records (http://m.infodog.com/show/judge_dir.htm). Additionally, please consider the following questions:
Is this a judge who appears to have true interest in our breed and knowledge of the Standard?
Is this a judge who has the confidence, experience, and physical stamina to handle the pressure of a large entry (200 dogs) and still perform competently?
Does this judge take the time to go over each dog, and give each exhibitor the same courtesy?
When judging, is there consistency between winners dog and winners bitch?
Am I able to follow a consistent "type" with his/her placements?
When observing this judge is he/she looking at the dog or handler?
Is my choice only based on the fact I have won on several occasions?
