Judging Report by Kelvin Barnes for Dogs only

I was pleased with the over all quality of the dogs. Some very good head types. Most had correct ridges. Generally temperaments were good. An outside ring would have been preferential to assess movement but weather forecasts had not been good.

Judging report by Gillian Mitchelson for bitches only
 
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all exhibitors for giving me such a wonderful entry of bitches. It was disappointing that the ring could not have been larger, especially for the classes with high entries where I had to split the class to see them move. All temperaments were excellent, and all ridges were correct except for one. All bites were correct.
