The folks who are judgeing are learning too and some will go on to be certified as AKC show or trial judges..Matches are an inexpensive way to gain experience before you begin to spend some. REAL money on show entry's .
BTW that dog park looks like the one in Xenia"..I if not,check out the one on Dayton Xenia pike just up the hill from Kilcare raceway...turn left into parking just before the trafic light. Nice big new park,water fountains,picnic tables,shade and a seperate section for small dogs...Dogs must be off lead after leaveing the paddock and no food or treats permited inside.(this place was planned by experts and they have done everything to avoid conflict )
