Full Critique for Manchester 2019
Judge : Mrs Wendy Cain
This critique reflects the judge's opinion
based on what they saw on the day of the show.
|I would like to thank exhibitors for a wonderful entry and thank my two brilliant stewards. I last judged Shih Tzus in 2015 and at that time I thought the breed was in a great place. So many good mouths I commented that the breeders were to be congratulated. What has happened since then is disappointing. On the day there had to be compromises, as not many had good construction and type. Some that just oozed beautiful type were not sound. What has happened to the Shih Tzu kick back, where are the well sprung ribs, only few present here today.|
