Critique - Judge: Bitches: Margaret Gittins

My thanks to exhibitors for a quality entry and to my efficient Stewards. Although I did not find any bad mouths there were a number that were borderline. I hope this fault is not starting to creep into our breed. Movement still needs attention although the uneven surface of the ring did not help dogs or handlers.

Bitches
