For many long-time breeders, exhibitors and professional handlers, becoming a dog show judge is a way of giving back to the sport which has given them so much enjoyment. According to all-breed judge Robert Berndt, judging is a major responsibility that should only be undertaken by the very experienced fancier. It requires a detailed, secure knowledge of not only breed Standards and type, but canine anatomy, physiology, and topology as well. To help further the education of all current, new, and prospective judges, Dr. Berndt has written a one-of-a-kind book that anyone considering judging should own. He covers structure, movement and breed type in detail, and then discusses issues that judges face, such as how to run an efficient ring and cope with the stress of travel and decision making. A "must read" for exhibitors and breeders who want to better evaluate their own dogs and understand a judge's perspective, as well as current and prospective judges.
