Judge Info - Herb Hagge

Showdog.com Judge Since Saturday, June 07, 2003
Retirement Announced 9/30/2010

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

Did you know?
The figure 8 exercise requires the team to heel in a figure 8 pattern either on or off leash. Generally two of the ring stewards will assist the judge with this exercise by acting as "posts", standing 8 feet apart, that the team walks around to form the loops of the figure 8.
