Judge Info - Linda Schubert

Showdog.com Judge Since Wednesday, December 31, 2014
Retirement Announced 6/30/2016

Shows a slight bias toward dogs over bitches. Not very political. 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.

Did you know?
A specialty show may be regional or national. A "Best in Show" win at a national specialty show is tremendously prestigious, indicating that the winning dog or bitch triumphed at a contest which attracted entries from the most serious fanciers of that breed in the country or continent. Some specialty shows attract international entries.
