John Cox

MR. JOHN COX of SHORELINE, WASHINGTON got his first Saint Bernard, Nicklus, in 1969. This puppy went on to become the breed’s most-titled (at the time) dog with American and Canadian Champion and American and Canadian Utility Dog titles. Mr. Cox has lived with eight other Saints and has earned additional championships and UDTs, plus owning a Pembroke Welsh Corgi which earned a tracking title. In 1998, he started all over again with a Saint puppy, Kris, imported from Belgium. This dog surpassed all his other Saint’s record as the most-titled Saint Bernard Champion with 39 titles to his name (9 Master titles in Agility, UDT, TD, RAE2, DD, plus a VCD2.) Mr. Cox’s last Saint Bernard, Ms. May, completed her Bronze Grand Championship along with a CDX, PCDX, GN, CGCA. All his dogs are owner-handled to all titles. He started judging AKC Obedience in 1978, making 2018 his 40th year of judging. This is his first Westminster judging assignment.
