Judging Summary for Mr Howard Ogden
UK Appointments since January 2000
|Southern Counties 2021 ||Date : 26th June 2021|
||Thank you for accepting me as substitute judge. Covid restrictions meant we certainly needed to allow 3 mins per dog rather than 2 mins. Coat colour references are a bit hit and miss I confess. Just wanted to record how well you all coped, but also how impressed I was with the depth of quality. You are so fortunate to have both “old school” established breeders alongside new enthusiasts with evidence of positive inter-action, looking at the catalogue. That’s the way forward. Bill and Trish Gray were a superb stewarding team with both Bill and I soon learning from Trish how to keep up to the mark and stay sanitised!
|Three Counties 2018 ||Date : 8th June 2018|
||Grateful to Three Counties for this first time CC opportunity. Fifty-four of the 63 entered were present. I judged my first breed classes at Prudhoe Open in 1983! I have attended 3 Breed Club Seminars since 2002 and finally obtained a JDP Credit in 2015 that allowed a hands-on discount to 55. I had 150. There was no shortage of quality exhibits right from the off making full use of the spacious freshly mown ring. Body proportions were challenging since there comes a time when body longer than height becomes too long, as it affects overall balance.
