Judge : Miss Ann Spooner
This critique reflects the judge's opinion
based on what they saw on the day of the show.

Northern Counties Shih Tzu Club held a Ch show where BIS was Ch Zamadar Majic Potion for Cedarhythe; & RBIS, Tameron Miss Dark Obsession. Thank you to the committee for a happy & well organised show. My thanks to the ring stewards for making my job easier. Additional thanks to the competitors for your entries. I found that some exhibits are getting a little too big. However, overall, heads were of a good size with dark eyes. Mouths, although broader with six teeth, are not having enough under bite (level or reverse scissor) which spoils the expression. Movement still requires work & hind movement on many is far too close or single tracking. Please always watch your pups from behind. On the upside, I found some lovely exhibits showing all the correct attributes.
