Judge Info - Chad Hill

Showdog.com Judge Since Wednesday, May 31, 2017
Retirement Announced 10/31/2017

Shows a slight bias toward bitches over dogs. Actually prefers to see the owner of the dog handling it. Low 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.
