Judging in America is always challenging for FCI judges, since both the FCI’s and AKC’s standards are different except for some breeds that originated in US and the FCI respects and uses it as the standard of origin.

In regards to the AKC s rules, any judge would be advised to use AKC ‘s standard when judging in the US but each judge should respect themselves and be confident in their own knowledge, and keep his own image.

Even though the types or their interpretations of the standard are different at some points, good dogs always stand out and any experienced judges can recognize them.

Nowadays, I don’t think that there’s a big difference between a FCI or AKC judge judging in the US.

The entries are usually the same or sometimes bigger since the FCI judge doesn’t know about the ranking and any good dog could win.

All American exhibitors are always very professional, very polite, and have great sportsmanship and they understand and respect the judge’s opinion. I always enjoy and feel honored to judge in America and I’m much appreciate their system that always keeps their show standard high.
