Judge Info - Maria Brandt
Showdog.com Judge Since Sunday, September 30, 2018
Retirement Announced 10/31/2018
Shows a slight bias toward dogs over bitches. Actually prefers to see the owner of the dog handling 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.
