Full Critique for Joint Shih Tzu Clubs 2023
Judge : Mr Kelvin Chedzoy
This critique reflects the judge's opinion
based on what they saw on the day of the show.
|I’d very much like to thank The Shih Tzu Club of South Wales and Western Counties for inviting me to judge their Championship Show held in conjunction with Bath General Championship Show 28th May 2023. I had a very warm welcome and would also like to thank my stewards on the Day. I was very honoured to receive such a marvellous entry. Overall, I found the breed to be of good quality. My main winners were of excellent type. However, there were one or two points within the breed that gave me reason for concern. Firstly, I observed a few dogs single tracking behind. The saying goes if a dog is constructed correctly, it will move correctly. Secondly, some dogs had insufficient length to neck. Also, there where those whose tails were carried low and not set high which is needed for correct balance both standing and on the move.|
