|Type of Breeds|
|I have been actively involved in pure-bred dogs since 1972, when I purchased my first American Cocker Spaniel for show and breeding. From then until 1997, I bred and co-bred many AKC champions under the Dur-Bet and Kittcar prefixes, as well as handling some top winners.
I have been approved as an AKC judge since 1997, and currently judge the Sporting, Toy and Non-Sporting groups, as well as Miscellaneous classes, Junior Showmanship and Best in Show.
Some of the most memorable events in my judging career have been judging abroad in Great Britain, Europe, Scandinavia, China, Russia, South Korea and Australia, and I have had the honor of judging my own breed at the American Spaniel Club National event seven times.
My approach to judging has always been to put overall breed type above any single attribute. It is important to investigate all the points addressed in a standard when evaluating an exhibit. However, I feel that, too often, the overall picture can be ignored in the final analysis. General unity of structure, harmony of proportion, functioning of the structure in movement, and correctness of all features for the breed's intended purpose is of greater importance than any factor considered separately. Of course, as a judge, I want it all!
