Show Dog Judges Profiles


, Mr Kenneth California,




Ken has handled German Shepherds (and other breeds) for over 40 years. He uses his extraordinary talents and athleticism and "touch" to showcase the dogs of Victory, with unsurpassed skill. Ken's name is synonymous with WINNING. He is a recipient of the Lamar O. Kuhns Award for excellence in handling and for his contributions to the breed. He also has extensive experience in obedience, law enforcement, guide dog and herding work. He was mentored by the legendary Erich Renner, who called Ken "the finest handler in the country" and "A Dog Whisperer," years before the name became a popular TV show. His list of Champions reads like a Who's-Who of the German Shepherd breed. He has to his credit a Grand Victrix, multiple High Select Champions, hundreds of Bests of Breeds, Best in Show Specialties, Group wins, and in total, over 200 Champions to his credit.
