Judge : Mrs Pat Gregory
This critique reflects the judge's opinion
based on what they saw on the day of the show.

I would like to thank South Wales Kennel Association for my judging appointment. Although my entry was not large I had some quality dogs to go over. I would like exhibitors to take note that white of eye is creeping in and also some exhibits long in body so when standing spoils the overall picture. It was lovely to see some solids out and was surprised when I found at the end of the day my two CC’s were both solids.
