MR. GREGORY A. ANDERSON
MR. GREGORY A. ANDERSON of Middletown, Maryland claims to have been born in a whelping box. At an early age, he realized a love for the dog show world and the artistry and talent of the breeders and handlers. His parents, Carl and Rosalie Anderson bred and showed top winning Cocker Spaniels in the 1950s and 1960s. Mr. Anderson followed in their footsteps and enjoyed a 20-year career as a professional handler.
He has handled the top Cocker Spaniels in the breed's history winning countless specialty titles, All-Breed group placements and Best in Show wins, and is forever thankful to those breeders and owners for giving him the chance to show such quality animals.
Like his parents, his interests eventually turned to judging. He was approved to judge the Sporting group by the age of 35. Having been a judge for more than 20 years, he has traveled the country and abroad to adjudicate national shows and teach seminars on Sporting breeds. Mr. Anderson is approved to judge the Sporting group, Best in Show, and Junior Showmanship. This is his first judging assignment at Westminster.
