AKC National Owner Handled Series Finals Judging Panel Released

New York, NY – The American Kennel Club® (AKC®) is pleased to announce the judging panel for the inaugural AKC National Owner Handled Series Finals to be held in Orlando, Fla. on Friday, Dec. 13, 2013.

“Owner-handlers are the core of the conformation dog sport, comprising 80% of all show entries,” said Alan Slay, AKC Director of Event Programs. “We’re excited to offer this Series Final, adjudicated by many judges that have been owner-handlers themselves, to put the spotlight on all of our owner-handlers and celebrate the time and dedication they put into their dogs.”

Heading the panel as Best in Show judge for the AKC National Owner Handled Series Finals is Mrs. Sheila DiNardo of West Hartford, Connecticut.

Judges for each of the seven variety groups and all breeds within the group are:

SPORTING – Mr. Roger R. Hartinger – Cincinnati, OH
HOUND – Mr. Eugene Blake – Tulsa, OK
WORKING – Mrs. Roberta C. Davies – Brimfield, MA
TERRIER – Mrs. Cindy Vogels – Greenwood Village, CO
TOY – Mr. Dennis McCoy – Apex, NC
NON-SPORTING – Mr. Desmond J. Murphy – Monroe, NY
HERDING – Mrs. Leah R. James – Havana, FL

The premium list for the AKC National Owner Handled Series Finals will be available in September and an e-mail will be sent to all qualifying participants with full details about the event and how to enter.

Dogs ranked in the top ten (plus ties) of their breed at the end of the 2012 or 2013 qualifying periods are invited to compete in this Series Final. Rankings are compiled based on the AKC Owner Handled Series Point Schedule for Best of Breed, Group, and Best in Show placements. Rankings are available on the AKC website.
