Judging a conformation class

Post by celticpitbulls on Tue Aug 14, 2012 10:51 am

just a question lads and lassies, there's a few people on the board here that have being involved in the bull breeds for quite some time and have judged many apbt-sbt conformation classes. my question is this, i understand every judge has their own preference when it comes to these dogs, however when it comes to judging conformation and looking for things such as temperament-condition-structure-health-falts. what area would be your most important? in other words between the above options to look out for in a conformation class in what order would you put them in if you were judging??

me dear ricky, im not talking about the standard in asking when you or any other judges go into a ring to judge a class whats your overall preference as in the over all area, would it be condition, temperament, health, faults etc and in what order should they be looked at? for instance, 2 dogs great conformation 1 is undershot the other has bad elbows or something, what would you choose? etc etc..

it be nice to get a few people opinions on this weather or not you have judged a class.

I'd imagine that all things being equal, you'd favor the dog with the lesser handicap. The flaw that would hinder him less than the bad movement the elbow problem could generate. Undershot dogs can still bite so that was my reasoning.
