Conformation Judges

My West German/DDR puppy will be 6 months soon and I'd like to show him in AKC conformation. Anybody know which judges favor a more german type dog? He is a sable male.

No idea, but watching Berlin fetch his paper was awesome and hilarious! No better breed xD

Re: Conformation Judges

I'll have to do some thinking about judges, but I do have some other suggestions.

I would show him inside in small rings -- that way the more extreme dogs he may be showing against will be at a disadvantage. They need larger rings with good traction to not look sloppy -- your boy will look nice and balanced and in control of himself, giving you a leg up on the competition.

Re: Conformation Judges

I don't do much traveling for shows, so I hit the local ones. They are usually inside in small rings, so that should be no problem for us.

Thanks, Berlin is a great pup. He's having a hard time with the paper right now since he lost all of his baby canines and his adult ones aren't all the way in yet. He picks it up and it goes flying out of his mouth in the other direction.

Re: Conformation Judges

When I was showing my ddr/am showline male ,,quite a few years ago I might mention,,he did well in all breed shows, he most likely wouldn't have been looked at twice in specialities, we did, as daphne suggested,,small inside rings and a few outside ones,,

Dodge was always the 'best man' never the groom ) in that, whenever he showed he always took a Reserve. I did it for the learning experience more so, than the 'win', showed him until he was around 3 and then moved on to other things..

Good luck,,it was definately a learning experience )

I've shown Max in AKC obedience under this Judge a few times and every time he came to me after and told me I really need to get Max in AKC conformation and that he is one of the Judges for that. This is a picture of Max, he is all working lines.




I have shown Max in UKC conformation where he earned winning points against a American bred male.

UKC Conformation "usually" prefers working line dogs. Max is very handsome and looks like my Berlin will probably look when he matures. Conformation is not my main sport, but I enjoy it, never been to a specialty show, somehow I always miss it, usually show in the local all-breed shows.
