I don't know of any vets you could use but why not ask a family member to be the judge.Ask someone who does not have a dog in the show so there's no favoritism
This is a pretty big task for your first big group
Try having some musical entertainment because you can usually get a big group to come to that and it's not that much work on your part. may even be able to find a family member or someone from the community to volunteer

A dog show sounds like so much fun, Angie! Congratulations on your new role and kudos that you are branching out to larger activities! Here are a few thoughts: Have the residents choose the categories (i.e., best tail wag), have the staff walk the dogs on the leash as they do on TV, 3. Take a ton of pictures and create a memory board after the event! 4. In preparation, maybe make dog biscuits in a cooking group. Can't wait to hear how it goes!
