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. Although this is her first judging assignment at Westminster, the 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.
