John Cox will judge at
Westminster on Feb 12
Shoreline resident John Cox is the judge for the 3rd Annual Masters Obedience Championship at Westminster on Monday, February 12, 2018, in conjunction with the 142nd Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in New York City on February 12-13, 2018.

Cox will officiate over more than two dozen of the top Obedience dogs in the country during two rounds of daytime competition held at Piers 94.

Cox 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. 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 of 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.)

Cox’s last Saint Bernard, Ms. May, completed her Bronze Grand Championship along with a CDX, PCDX, GN and 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.

All daytime preliminary breed and junior showmanship judging, agility and obedience competitions will be held at Piers 92 and 94 on the West Side of Manhattan. The group, Best in Show, and junior showmanship finals judging will be held at Madison Square Garden in the evening.

The dog show is preceded on Saturday, February 10, by the 5th Annual Masters Agility Championship at Westminster on Pier 94 as part of the “Meet and Compete” event which also includes AKC Meet The Breeds® on Piers 92 and 94.

All Westminster Week events are presented by Purina Pro Plan®.
