    Are there judges/ boxer evaluators that can be contacted to give you a evaluation of your dog for showing/conformation? And if so, how do you find one?

    Well, yes and no.

    Your best bet would be to join your nearest boxer club and ask people there (which would include breeders, and possibly judges as well) to give you their opinions. I'd ask several people, not just one, and take the consensus (not everybody in the dog world is guaranteed to be pleasant and it can be unfairly offputting if you happen to be unlucky).

    Another possibility is contacting an experienced handler. OK, they're not a judge. But they make their living showing dogs, so should have a fairly good idea of what is likely to be a good prospect for winning with.
