Show Dog Judges Profiles


, Mr Robert J California,



  • AKC:

    Working, Herding

Robert Caswell, and his wife, Diana, established the Cottonwood Old English Sheepdog kennel name in the early 1970s. Dogs from their line are nationally known for their correct head, coat, and structure, and are sought as breeding stock by other breeders. Mr. Caswell became a judge of Old English Sheepdogs and Juniors in 1987, and is now approved for the Herding and Working groups, and Best in Show. Judging has taken him from Westminster in New York to top shows in Australia and Taiwan. In 2007, he judged at the World Show in Mexico City. He holds membership in three San Diego area dog clubs, and has served as an officer in each of them. As a show chairman, he established the well-known Country Club Classic; as show chair of the Cabrillo Kennel Club, he is responsible for presenting shows at Qualcom Stadium.
