    I'd suggest approaching the judge one on one and having a friendly discussion. He may or may not want you to take a picture. It should not be about making a rule book fatter or more complicated. It is a simple matter of personal preference and communication.

    Not long ago, I judged an event and later happened to be talking with an owner whose pro ran his dog in the trial. I took a picture of my score sheet and sent it from my smartphone so he could see my sheet. (sometimes a picture can tell lots of words, as the saying goes) He never posted the picture on the net anyplace and I knew he wouldn't.

    As a judge, if asked nicely, I would not mine a picture of their sheet. As stated above, we need to be able to stick to our judgement.

    Now, my sheets tend to be a little messy, but I don't think that I would mind giving a copy to a handler. I have actually sent sheets to handlers on Monday morning when they were not able to be there Sunday when the ribbons were handed out...

    Yes or No it really doesn't matter to me; however, seeing a grown man have a melt down and claim he is going to turn a judge into the AKC because he cannot take a picture is beyond childish. Its people like this that make every facet of life a complete struggle and usually end up lonely and unhappy. Take into consideration this individual got a ribbon.

    Did this really happen or are you speculating re the reason for the query?

    The score sheet is the property of the Judge and as such it is the Judges discretion. The handler may request to see their score sheet. This is very different than making an electronic copy that can be shared with the world at any time. If you choose to allow an electronic copy to be made, be prepared to explain your decisions five, ten, or twenty years from now on RTF and/or other Social Media.

    I judged with a co judge this past weekend that used an I-pad...........It was pretty slick in that he only drew the set up once.
    Had the scoring template already laid out.
    My only issue would be what happened 10 minutes after our test ended!!!!

    I had this request a short time ago and had no issue with it. Handlers and owners have every right to see there sheet and if I have done my job right, should not care if a snap shot is taken of it. I do think asking is preferred and a proper way to go about it.

    They make water resistant cases...the i-Pad holds up better than the paper score sheets and the waterproof scoresheets...and you can send the scoresheet in PDF form, should a participant request it...=)
