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

A pleasant time judging a number of good dogs. Always a challenge in this breed to get the absolute correct mouth, as required by the standard. Whilst not accepting wry mouths, i was a little forgiving at times to those who were a little more undershot than required. The body should be well coupled, this makes for a well collected dog. Over long dogs quite often weak in front and behind. There was quite a lot of weaving in front. The head piece, will always be important in this breed, also the abundant coat and characteristic movement which is also special to this unique breed. I was able to find all these requirements in my main winners. Some lovely puppies out today.
