KENNETH M. McDERMOTT

 

 

            This year marks 55 years of involvement in the sport of pure-bred dogs which years have covered being an Ass't Handler to the late Terrierman, Seth H. Campbell, then being a breeder-owner-handler of Wire Fox Terriers, Skye Terriers and Brussels Griffons , to being a licensed professional handler who showed dogs of 47 different breeds, to becoming a licensed judge in 1978. Currently that license is for /- 110 breeds, including the Terrier Group, the Toy Group and Best in Show.

 

            A marriage of 40 years to the late Joan Elizabeth Redden was blessed with a son, Curtis, the Father of Grand-daughters, Brianna and Lacey.

 

            Outside of show dogs there is a very long and deep interest in birding (or bird watching if you please), plus fishing and general interests in nature and the outdoors. Limiting the number of judging assignments each year strictly to thirty allows for balance in  these many areas of involvement.

 

            Retired  from IBM after 30 years of involvement in the computer industry has offered great flexibility and allowed for judging assignments in 41 States, 7 Canadian Provinces, Mexico, England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.  Other assignments have been proffered in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Taiwan, Shanghai ,the Dominican Republic, Thailand, China and four South American countries.

 

            Highlights of a judging career which has spanned 33 years are many but for a Terrierman the 26assignments at Montgomery County, including the 1987 Best In Show assignment plus the 12 Westminster KC assignments which have included judging the Terrier Group in 1986 and 1996 and the Toy Group in 2005 are the most cherished. Also you have no idea just how humbling it was to be named DOGS IN REVIEW “Judge of the Year 2006”!

 

        There can be no higher honor bestowed upon a judge than to be invited to judge a National Specialty and in this regard honor has been bestowed to judge the National Specialties for 22 Terrier breeds(some several times), 7 Toys plus Poodles, French Bulldogs and  happily contracts are in place for others yet to come.
