Full Critique for Crufts 2023
Judge : Mrs Brenda Roberts
This critique reflects the judge's opinion
based on what they saw on the day of the show.
|I had a lovely day judging so many super dogs sadly not everyone gets a prize on the day. I found some strong classes and many superb dogs went cardless on the day. On the whole I found some lovely specimens so there is hopefully a bright future for our breed. Please watch when you are breeding, I found mouths much the same, but also some very short ribcages giving a pipe shaped affect to the body and not the deep barrel rib cage that is a Shih Tzu feature but instead more narrow and tube like bodies which is incorrect. Some exhibits looked beautiful when stacked but on the move the true shape was seen to be longer than required. Also watch fronts and elbows and narrow back ends.|
