Judging Records

Group Records (1925, 1929-2010)

NOTE: Group judging according to new AKC rules began at Westminster in 1924. These statistics do not include Group judges for 1924 (when the same two judges officiated for all five groups) and 1926-1927-1928 (when a team of three judges officiated for each group). The names of those judges are in the Group Judging chart. Beginning in 1929, only one judge was chosen to officiate for each Group and for Best In Show.
