At the March general meeting, the SCDOC presented Larry Warsoff with a token of our appreciation. Larry had been an obedience judge for about 8 years when the AKC asked him to be an Obedience Field Representative. He accepted and on January 1, 1988, Larry went to work for the AKC. After 24 years of service, Larry retired on February 27th.
During his career as an Obedience and Rally Field Rep, Larry has mentored prospective judges, tested and interviewed applicants and observed and evaluated current judges. In addition he has been a valuable resource and provided guidance to judges, exhibitors and clubs in resolving issues that may arise during dog shows. Larry has presented numerous Obedience and Rally seminars through-out the country and has served as Co-Chairman at past National Obedience Invitational events.
We wish Larry the best in the next phase of his life.
