Judge Info - Jimmy James
Showdog.com Judge Since Thursday, June 12, 2003
Retirement Announced 6/30/2008
Shows a slight bias toward bitches over dogs. Has a tendency to use dogs handled by certain handlers but isn't overt in it. Moderate 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.
Each judge on ShowDog.Com gives a different amount of weight to each trait of the dogs that they judge in each show. Below is a table of which traits Jimmy James looks for.
