    "Bad judging is a serious matter. It puts the future of the sport at risk because it creates the image that conformation competition lacks integrity and objectivity, and that it is highly political. That drives away participants, discourages newcomers, and besmirches shows’ public image. It may well play a role in declining entries. Most steady exhibitors and professional handlers know of numerous instances. No matter how difficult, the problem needs to be addressed on an objective and unbiased basis." - Dr. Gerry Miesels
