Biography
Mr. Canalizo of Mill Neck, NY has spent many years as a breeder, owner, professional handler, and judge. His first exposure to the purebred dog came in 1961 with his family’s first Afghan Hound Babu Bamn of Grandeur, who’s first litter was sired by the 1957 Westminster Best in Show winner, Int. Ch. Shirkhan of Grandeur.

Mr. Canalizo was the breeder, owner and/or handler of the two Afghan Hounds that remain the number one and two top winning Hounds of all time. He has won two Top Owner Handler Awards and six Quaker Oats Awards. Collectively he piloted over 100 Afghan Hounds to their championships, had over 300 all-breed Best in Shows and nearly 1,000 Hound group awards. He is currently approved to judge Best in Show, the Hound, Toy, Non-Sporting and Herding groups plus several breeds in the Sporting and Working groups.

Mr. Canalizo’s credentials include developing and presenting dog-related educational seminars worldwide, feature writing, and working as a contributing editor for numerous national and international publications. He has officiated at events in 28 countries to date. The 2019 Westminster Kennel Club dog show will mark his 54th year of attendance. This will be his first judging assignment at Westminster, following in his mother’s footsteps, a past WKC judge herself.
