*AKC judge: It’s not just a dog’s qualities that count; it’s the performance* Three-time Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show judge Bill Potter absolutely loves judging dog shows: “The whole process is very rewarding.” But it’s not just a dog’s qualities that count; he explains: it’s the performance. Presented by Purina Pro Plan.

- I have judged at Westminster three times. You're not only looking for are they exhibiting the essential qualities of their breed, but are they performing at the level that you would expect at that show. For example, the Norwegian Elkhound, I see a balanced animal moving effortlessly, happy to be where she is.

I absolutely love judging dog shows. The whole process is very rewarding to me.
