Judge : Mr Howard Ogden
This critique reflects the judge's opinion
based on what they saw on the day of the show.

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.
