Showdog.com Judge Since Monday, June 30, 2014
Retirement Announced 11/30/2014
Not political at all. Low 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 Andrew Lopez 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.

Only the top 25 are listed for the sake of brevity.
