Q How long have you been judging?

A. 7 years

Q. How long have you been judging bloodhounds?

A. 7 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. Effortless movement, good strong feet and legs, a nose of good size, a neck of sufficient length so that when the dog is working he can run with head down and gather the scent with ease.

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?

A. I can not say

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

A. No Preference - The key to movement is not fast or slow but good stride, covering the gound with ease. If I need the dog to be gaited faster than the person handling is moving,then I request it.

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

A. Two dogs are never equal, but breed type with a good head is important.

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

A. Not at the moment.

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

A. Not all, but a lot of handlers do not gait the dog straight away and back well.

Q. Have you ever attended a Bloodhound judging seminar?

A. Yes

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

A. It was very informative and I would attend another.

Q. What size slobber rag do you prefer exhibitors to carry with them in the ring?
    Wash cloth, dish towel or beach towel size?

A. Dish towel
