Q How long have you been judging?

A. 39 years

Q. How long have you been judging bloodhounds?

A. 6 years

Q. Have you ever owned or shown a bloodhound?

A. No

Q.What important attributes of a bloodhound do you look for while judging this breed?

A. Balance

Q. Do you have a preference of color?

A. No

Q. Do you have a preference of size?

A. No

Q. What attributes do you feel breeders have improved on over the years if any?


Q. What attributes do you feel breeders have lost over the years if any?

A. Endurance features (i.e. feet; legs)

Q. Do you prefer to see a bloodhound shown on a loose lead or a tight lead?

A. Loose - I want the dogs to move as they are meant to move--heads up to the air or down to the trail. I do not mind the heads down as long as I can see the dog's movement. When people are jerking at the neck to get the head up it ruins the proper movement and look.

Q. Do you prefer a slower or faster gait for judging the bloodhound?

A. I want the dogs shown at their loping gait. Fast or slow does not describe that.

Q. If you had equal quality bloodhounds in the ring, which attribute would be your decision maker for the win?

A. Overall type, including good skin.

Q. Would you like to see anything in the bloodhound standard changed or clarified?

A. A good definition of "standing over...ground" would help. It is widely misunderstood to mean long in body!

Q. Are there any common mistakes that bloodhound exhibitors make in the ring that you would like to see improved upon?

A. See above re forcing head up movement. Also going too fast.

Q. Have you ever attended a Bloodhound judging seminar?

A. No

Q. If so, what was your opinion of the seminar? If not, would you like to attend one?

A. Sure.

Q. Do you have any additional comments?

A. This was an interesting idea. I look forward to the posted results. Please notify the Judges' List when results are tallied. Thanks. Sometimes options are not inclusive. Example: the question regarding what size slobber rag I would prefer exhibitors carry with them. I don't care what they carry. They need to carry whatever works for them and for their dog. Also, I really appreciate a good swipe just before I get onto the dog's head :)-
