REASIN, Dr Lee Anthony Arizona,
Dr. Reasin began as a breeder-exhibitor in the years immediately following the Second World War. The first dogs he bred on his own were Miniature Pinschers, followed by Shetland Sheepdogs, then Skye Terriers. He went on to finish champions in all three breeds. He continued as an active breeder through the 1980s. His first judging assignment came at Glendale, California, in 1945. First approved to judge Shetland Sheepdogs and Miniature Pinschers, he is now approved to judge all breeds. He has judged at every major venue on the American show circuit. At the 2000 Morris & Essex Kennel Club show, he was honored by the American Kennel Club for his fifty-five years of service as an AKC-licensed judge. A member of the Dog Fanciers of Ventura County, Dr. Reasin served the club for five years as president and has also served as assistant show chairman. Other club affiliations have included the Skye Terrier Club of America, the American Shetland Sheepdog Association, and the Southern California Shetland Sheepdog Club.
