1st Holden’s Westlodge Dream of Me in Rottknight. 9yr Rottweiler. A lovely solid old fashioned B. Full of substance. Feminine but broad head with well proportioned muzzle and nice dark eye. Deep chest and well ribbed back. Still moving well, especially behind.
Junior Handling 6 – 11 yrs.
1st Ellie Beach handling a Rottweiler. Good use of your voice to command your dog and I liked the way you worked you dog to get her to stand. Showed the teeth well. Good lines on the triangle although you could be a little tidier on the corners. Nice straight line to the corner & back.
Junior Handling 12 - 16 yrs.
1st Elizabeth Newton handling a Golden Retriever.
2nd Kiera Rowley handling an Irish Setter.
Very close between 1 & 2. Elizabeth was technically slightly better. Keira showed the teeth clearer. Both stood your dogs well but Kiera did a slightly better triangle. Both of you stood your dogs offline when coming back from your patterns, rather than directly in front of the judge. Elizabeth won out on the line to the corner and back and had a slightly better rapport with her dog.
3rd Carrie Ann Kirk
4th Alfie Thompson
Adult Handling 12 - 16 yrs.
1st Cari Hutton handling a Miniature Dachshund.
2nd Alethea Gilmour handling a Pug
Again, very close between these two. Both very attentive at the table although Cari showed the teeth a little clearer. Pattern work was good but again Cari just had the edge with slightly straighter lines. Especially on the up and down.
3rd Demelza Bottomley. You put in such a lot of work with a dog that did not like the floor. I especially like the way you continued to encourage him and didn’t get flustered.
4th Annmarie Park. Just won out with better showing of the teeth and very slightly better lines.
5th Caroline Smith
