View Full Results

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

To be asked to judge this club show was a real honour, my appreciation goes to the committee for such a well-run show and the exhibitors for such a lovely entry. My concerns were fronts, narrow chests where I found it hard to put my hand underneath, legs short in upper arm and some elbows out, this made it so difficult for the dogs to reach well forward on the move. Mouths need more attention with the lack of padding round the muzzle altering the expression of the dog. Tongues hanging out and dogs unable to close their lips, not a good look for this gorgeous breed. All that said, I was extremely pleased by my winners and some lovely exhibits left the ring in the larger classes.
