Judge : Steve Jones
This critique reflects the judge's opinion
based on what they saw on the day of the show.

My first-time awarding CC`s in our wonderful Breed, and I thoroughly enjoyed my day. My thanks go to the Officers and committee of The Shih Tzu Club of Scotland for their very kind invitation to judge at this show, and to all the exhibitors for the lovely entry, and good sportsmanship acceptance of my decisions on the day, and to my stewards for their kind and efficient assistance. Overall, I was pleased with the quality of my entry on the day, the areas that I felt needing extra attention in some dogs were topline’s and lack of muscle, both of which can be addressed by thoughtful breeding and good exercise.
