I do get compensated. I get free admission to watch the best dogs in the country, all the while why I sit in the best seat in the house. Better than anyone else, right behind the line.
Is there a better place to be to learn how dogs react or how the good handlers run their dogs?

Somebody is giving up their weekend when I'm running, we should all try to do the same a couple a weekend per year.
I judge because I am judged. No judges, no game to play . A club pays gas and tolls , gives me some chow and a place to shower and sleep . I get to see my friends and their dogs all weekend Or, better yet , make new friends !! (hopefully not lose any friends ,LOL) I give up vacation days ,wear and tear on the truck and once in a while run over my own dog ........... To pay me means I have to answer to someone .You can ask my bosses how that works And just like those college football players , will the move to unionize be far behind ?? Off to laugh while training thinking of this regards..........

I believe show judges are compensated so much per dog judged and the fee is part of the entry fee. I don't know how much it is. I don't think it is very much. And, I don't know what judges get for judging groups and best.
As far as compensating HT/FT judges. That would probably be opening a can of worms no one really wants to deal with.
obedience judges are compensated, too.
I have no idea if this is anywhere near accurate, but here is the alleged salary for dog show (bench) judges:
And the AKC requirements to be a dog show judge (from the AKC website):
To give you a better idea of the experience you need before applying to become a new breed judge, here are some of the prerequisites: at least 10 years of involvement in the sport; breeding and raising at least four litters of one breed; and producing at least two breed champions from those litters.
