Judge Info - Patricia Allen

Showdog.com Judge Since Saturday, October 31, 2015
Retirement Announced 6/30/2017

Has a tendency to use dogs handled by certain handlers but isn't overt in 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.
