Mrs. Vicki Seiler-Cushman

MRS. VICKI SEILER-CUSHMAN of Xenia, Ohio, began showing dogs when she was 12 years old, winning a group fourth at Westminster when she was 14 with her Siberian Husky, Ch. Lobo Rey. She competed in Junior Showmanship, finding it to be one of the best experiences for growing friendships and learning to compete gracefully. Vicki became a professional handler guiding many top-winning dogs in all seven groups. She has piloted dogs to more than 200 Best in Show wins and won two awards for her handling from Kennel Review Magazine (Top New Professional Handler and Female Handler of the Year).  She was honored to judge for the Westminster Kennel Club (2019), Morris and Essex Kennel Club (2021), The AKC National Championship (2020), and The National Dog Show (2022). Vicki is on the board of the Dayton Kennel Club, a Member of the Doberman Pinscher Club of America (Chairman of the Judges Education Committee), and The Giant Schnauzer Club of America. 

Mrs. Seiler-Cushman is a Procter and Gamble retiree and judges more than 80 breeds over six groups. She is married to Dr. Jeff Cushman, and together they have five children, six Chihuahuas and one Doberman. She is approved to judge the Working and Non-Sporting Groups, Sporting and Toy breeds, Junior Showmanship, and Best in Show. This is her second judging assignment at Westminster.
