Judge Info - Willian Crutchfield

Showdog.com Judge Since Sunday, September 30, 2007
Retirement Announced 12/31/2009

Actually prefers to see the owner of the dog handling it. 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 Willian Crutchfield looks for.

Head Very Low
Forequarter Very Low

Gait High
Top Neck and Back Normal

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.
