Judge Info - Eileen Miller

Showdog.com Judge Since Thursday, July 31, 2014
Retirement Announced 4/30/2017

Shows a slight bias toward dogs over bitches. Has a tendency to use dogs handled by certain handlers but isn't overt in it. 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.
