Judge Info - Charles Britton

Showdog.com Judge Since Monday, August 31, 2015
Retirement Announced 12/31/2016

Shows a slight bias toward bitches over dogs. Doesn't like using the same breeds that win every other show for BIS. Not political at all. Relatively high 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.

Did you know?
A specialty show is a dog show which reviews a single breed, unlike other dog shows, particularly conformation shows, which are generally referred to as "all-breed" because they are open to all breeds recognized by the sponsoring kennel club.
