Judge Info - Richard Mitchell
Showdog.com Judge Since Thursday, May 31, 2018
Shows a slight bias toward bitches over dogs. Has a tendency to use dogs handled by certain handlers but isn't overt in it. Relatively high 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.
