Judge Info - Charles Wilson

Showdog.com Judge Since Thursday, December 31, 2009

Very political judge, likes to see certain handlers on dogs. Moderate 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.
