Judge Info - Brooks Wasson

Showdog.com Judge Since Sunday, September 30, 2007
Retirement Announced 6/30/2011

Shows a slight bias toward bitches over dogs. 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.
