Critique - Judge: Julie Driver (Stearnwood)
My thanks to the exhibitors for a superb entry of quality dogs. I was spoilt for choice in the majority of the classes and many good dogs had to go cardless. My main cause for concern was close hind movement however throughout the entry I had many dog & bitches who really moved well. In both sexes I was pleased with the younger classes which bodes well for the future.
MPD (10-1) Although there is only a 3 month age gap at this young age the stages of development differ greatly.
1 Holley Wynjill Snap Dragon lovely young dog with a good head and eye. He is well balanced throughout and he moved well.
2 Naylor & Morrison Anlory Duncan another nicely shaped young puppy of lovely type at this stage just preferred the head of 1.
3 Milligan-Bott & Bott Thendara Max Factor
1. Gisby & Parson Suteresett King of Hearts JW super headed young dog although he is mature for his age he is still very much a baby. Clean neck and shoulders good legs and feet, great depth to his body liked his topline and tailset. He moved well Best Puppy.
