Ms. Evalyn Gregory
Ms. Gregory of Louisville, KY is a second-generation dog person that followed in her father’s footsteps as professional dog handler turned judge. She first debuted as a six-year-old handler of Brussels Griffons and Boxers, leading to her success in Junior Showmanship and all-breed handling, known especially for her record-setting Brussels Griffons. Ms. Gregory was awarded her first of many Best in Shows at age 10. Madison Square Garden is familiar to her, having handled the 1996 Toy Group 2 Brussels Griffon and winning the 2009 Toy Group with “Lincoln,” another Brussels Griffon dog co-owned with her mother. Lincoln remains the most awarded smooth coated Brussels Griffon of all time. Ms. Gregory is a member of the Brussels Griffon and Boxer national parent clubs, as well as the kennel clubs of Louisville, Morris & Essex, and Santa Barbara. She is approved to judge multiple breeds, including the Toy and Non-Sporting groups. This is her second Westminster judging assignment.
