Phipps & Baker’s Gemswin Dennis The Mennace at Maddouse.
Standing alone but a
nice looking boy. Love his head of good shape and planes, not
too broad. Well made front with good bone and neat feet. Solid
all through, deep chest and level topline. Good rear angulation
with correct tailset with a lovely level wag on the stand. Good
coming and going and a joy to watch in profile, fluid with good
reach and drive. BOB
Carrington’s Carringdale Debonair.
What a lovely young man. Just 8mths and coming along well. Liked
him for size and shape, correct head with flat skull, dark eye
and well set ears. Super front assembly with well laid
shoulders, good depth of chest and correct spring of rib. Would
like a little more turn of stifle but he does show good reach
and drive for his age and is a sound steady mover. His type and
soundness winning through on the day to take BOB, BP and
Puppy Group 3. Well done.
Double & Harris’ Lembas All That Jaz.
I liked this 2yr B.
Good size and shape, lovely feminine head with a nice dark eye.
Just a little longer cast than but well made with good
shoulders. Good top and underline with depth to chest, correct
tailset and carriage. Very nice on the move, true coming and
going with reach and drive in profile.
Double & Harris’ Lembas Dream Maker.
.5yr D. Masculine with a pleasing head of good shape and dark
eye. Well made with good front and rear, lovely deep chest and
well muscled throughout. A little slugginsh on the move but
showed sound true movement.
Blackcap at Embletay
Spanish Water Dog
Long’s Mountairy Country Boy for Newmoorhill.
Liked this young
man. 8mth blk/wht D. Good size and shape. Liked his head with
correct flat skull and parallel planes. Well made front with
well laid shoulders, deep chest, short loin and a well angulated
rear. Carrying a nice coat of correct length. Super mover,
straight and true with the correct amount of reach and drive in
profile. BP & BOB
Carr’s Carbonnie Dona Roxanna.
2tr B, not very sure
of herself today. Pretty little B of good shape. Managed to get
hands on a little as she settled and she is nicely made. Much
more confident on the move.
surprised by the quality of the handling. There is a lot of talent here
but it needs to be refined. Lines were the main issue with all of the
handlers. Everyone displayed that they could move their dog in a
straight line for the first 2 legs of the triangle but after that they
all seemed to go to pieces. I was willing one of them to put in a good
performance and they would have walked away with their class. As it was
I was nit picking between places.
8yrs handling a Shar Pei. A very smartly presented, accomplished
handler, I liked the way you set your dog up and the way you worked to
get him just right. The 3rd leg of the triangle did not come back to me
and the up and back was a little wavey. I really liked the way you
talked to the dog. My main comment would be stop overshadowing, only
move when you need to. Very close to getting BJH in the challenge
2nd Laila May Ogborn,
10yrs, handling a Mini Smooth Dachshund. Well presented and I liked the
way you stood your dog on the table and your way or reassuring her. You
need to practice showing the teeth and remember what I said about the
lead position when starting off. Same comments regarding the 3rd leg of
the triangle and the up & down apply.
3rd Gweni Vaughan
11yrs handling a Cavalier. A very relaxed handler. You work well with
your dog but you need to pay more attention to standing him on the table
to make him look good. Like to way you move him but you do need to work
on your lines.
close class as all 3 did some things well and others not so well and any
one could have one with a consistent performance. As with the younger
handlers, lines were an issue.
Handling an Alaskan Malamute. Never easy with a big dog but you can
still do straight lines. I like the way you stacked him up and showed
the teeth. More attention to the lines will complete the picture. BJH
2nd. Lily Albone.
Handling a Pug. You struggled on the table with showing the teeth which
the breed is not used to so makes this more of a challenge in a handling
class. Apart from that, the same comments regarding lines apply.
3rd Tye Kitchen
15yrs handling a Italian Greyhound. As I said earlier, you could have
won this class had you come back to me on the triangle and produce
