Wentzville resident to judge working group at 143rd Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show

Posted on Thursday, December 27, 2018 at 11:26 am

Wentzville resident, James Moses, is among one of seven group judges at the 143rd Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in New York City on Monday, February 11 and Tuesday, February 12, 2019. Moses will officiate over the Working Group during the evening competition held at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night. The two-day, all-breed dog show, a highlight of Westminster Week, will feature daytime judging at Piers 92 and 94 in Manhattan.

Moses became involved in the sport of purebred dogs more than sixty years ago. He handled his first dog to its championship when he was 13 years old. By 19, he handled the number one dog, all-breeds, in Canada. As a handler, Moses has won more than 1,000 Bests in Show. His emphasis has been German Shepherd Dogs and he has handled four dogs into the prestigious “100 Club,” including the top Best in Show winning dog of all-time.

In 1987, Moses had the privilege of handling the Best in Show dog at Westminster, as well as the AKC Centennial Show in 1984. In addition, he has handled six Westminster group winners. In 1999, he was inducted into the Dog Show Hall of Fame. Moses is approved to judge the Working, Non-Sporting, Toy and Herding groups and Best in Show. This is his second Westminster 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, Feb. 9, by the 6th Annual Masters Agility Championship at Westminster on Pier 94 as part of the “Meet & Compete” event which also includes AKC Meet The Breeds® on Piers 92 and 94.
