American Dog Show Judges, Inc is dedicated to promoting the good, welfare and education of American Kennel Club approved Dog Show Judges and to further the advancement of purebred dogs.

Our philosophy is to respond to the needs of the judging community in a positive, responsible and non-confrontational manner. The principles of the organization are based on the ideals of democracy and equality.

We hope this website serves you, as a member of American Dog Show Judges, in many ways. Through it, you will become familiar with the people and activities that in turn promote and define stewardship of all American Kennel Club dog breeds.

Our member benefits are unequaled – giving judges a voice by building a relationship with the AKC through reason, open communication and mutual respect. Other benefits include our quarterly newsletter, The Voice, Biennial Seminar Trips and Medical and Accidental Insurance, just to name a few.

The New ADSJ Photo Directory

I am pleased to announce that our website at www.adsj.org has been redesigned and updated thanks to our new hosting and design company, Blue Ridge Graphics. They have designed a number of websites for parent clubs and other dog oriented clubs. I am glad I accepted their proposal as they did a fine job, which our webmaster, Gay Dunlap, says will make her job much easier. Be sure to visit www.adsj.org and you will find an easy to use site with a clean fresh look.

While you are reviewing the site, I would like to draw your attention to our improved Photo Directory. Read More
