We are extremely pleased to be the publishers of Dr. Berndt's new book. It is always a thrill for us to publish a work by someone as knowledgeable as Dr. Berndt and this effort by him is a major contribution to the sport of purebred dogs.From the Author :
This is a manual designed to help new judges as they start on their career of judging dog shows. It could also serve as a refresher course for experienced judges. It brings together in one volume the various fields of information that the judge is expected to have mastered before he enters the ring. These areas include the history of the dog, anatomy and kinesiology, movement, breed type, the role of the American Kennel Club, the actual judging in the ring, and judging evaluation.
The book takes the reader through the process in a logical, step-by-step approach from advanced breed preparation to the application for judging privileges to judging a class and the follow-through activities. It discusses the mechanics of assignments and contracts and travel.
Included in the appendix is a comparative study of several oriental breeds that could serve as a pattern for additional studies of other breeds that are similar. There is also a glossary of commonly used terms.
Available in an accompanying Handbook of Breed Standard Analysis is a short history of each breed along with a show photograph of a top winning specimen of the breed and an analysis in tree-chart pattern of each standard that can be used for quick reference for any point of the dog.
The material contained in this book was gathered during the author’s thirty years as a dog show judge. The suggestions of other judges and breeders have been blended into the material along with library-researched information. R.J.B.
