Judge Info - Travis Hunter
Showdog.com Judge Since Tuesday, June 10, 2003
Retirement Announced 11/30/2007
Doesn't like using the same breeds that win every other show for BIS. 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.
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 Travis Hunter looks for.
|Top Neck and Back||Low|
Each judge has a preference for certain handlers. These preferences may be based on past experiences, showing style, or just plain old dirty politics. This preference is completely separate from the quality of the exhibitor, which DOES come into play in the show ring. Travis Hunter has been known to prefer the following handlers.
Only the top 25 are listed for the sake of brevity.
