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

My thanks to the Officers and Committee for inviting me to judge this breed for the first time at CC level - a great honour which I had been looking forward to. It was a very hot day and one had to take into account that the ground was quite rough in places which didn’t always allow for smooth movement. On the whole I felt that mouths were better in the bitches and there were some correct pro-sternums amongst the males. Temperaments were excellent throughout. Thank you all very much for your entry.
