My schH club is looking for recommendations for SV Judges for an IPO trial. Our club has mostly GSDs...hence the SV request. We've found that the clubs in our region keep bringing in the same judges over and over, and we would like to perhaps broaden our base, rather than bring in a Judge we have already had. Please let me know if you have an SV Judge you particularly loved trialing under (and why...)!
Thanks in advance.
I liked a lot of them. I thought Gunther Lanfer was very good. My club kept him over for a club trial the week he judged the HOT Nationals in Akron a few years ago. I thought he was a tough judge, but very good. He was fair, but did not like hearing any excuses. If you use him, make SURE everybody is there on time. A friend of mine drove a couple hours to our club to go for a BH, and he BARELY made it in time, and Herr Lanfer was not going to wait for any late comers.
