The distinguised Westminster Kennel Clubestablished in 1877, remains America's oldest organization dedicated to the sport of purebred dogs. Among the judges of the 144th Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, Sarasota resident Sydney LeBlanc Good will be among the credible fleet. This will be LeBlanc’s first Westminster judging assignment, as she will officiate several breeds during the preliminary showmanship and competition, held at Pier 94 in New York City on February 9-11, 2020. 

Good is assigned to judge Whippets, Chinese Cresteds, Italian Greyhounds, Miniature Pinschers, English Setters, Irish Setters, Vizslas, Weimaraners and Wirehaired Vizslas. All ‘Best of Breed’ winners she selects will go on to advance in the Hound and Toy Groups that following Monday evening, and the final Best in Show competition, held at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday evening. 

For more than 60 years, Good has been involved in the sport of dogs. Her family, being very successful and prominent Doberman Pinschers breeders, participated in shows for years under the "Rockland" prefix. Additional dog experience was gained by working in the family boarding kennel and grooming facility until she started her career with the American Kennel Club. She was an AKC Executive Field Representative for more than 40 years, representing the AKC on average at least 125 events a year across the country and internationally. She is approved to judge numerous Sporting, Hound, Working, Toy and Non-Sporting breeds. Good’s vast experience has provided her the opportunity to observe a number of dogs with the utmost obedience, agility and pedigree, as well as have discussions with the world’s most renowned breeders.

She has personally owned multiple Doberman Pinschers, Poodles, Vizslas, Whippets, Pembroke Welsh Corgis, Chihuahuas and Brussel Griffons. "I am looking forward to judging the top dogs from all over the country!" says Good. "It is an awesome thrill and honor to be officiating such a prestigious event." All Westminster Week events are presented by Purina Pro Plan®.
