Very impressive and so much a breed type male. I loved his outline and compact build and balance. Holds himself well on the stance covering the ground well. Stunning correctly built head with rounded skull, high set dropped triangular ears used well to advantage, dark almond shaped eyes with lovely expression, clean cheeks, correct dentition. Proud head carriage on moderate neck strongly muscled, clean throat with some furnishings. Firm level backline to his well set and carried feathered tail with nice tip. Good front with depth to chest, well sprung ribs well back into short loin. Presented in clean, conditioned flat rich red jacket with lovely feathering. Muscular hindquarters, well turned stifle and short hocks. Lovely balanced legs well boned and tight round padded feet. Moves out so well with good side stride and sound back and forth, carries tail up with good carriage.


Saturday 29th June 2019 Windsor (CC) - Mr Richard Morris (Lascoed)

3rd Open Dog

Four years eight months, he completed a trio of wonderful dogs of which the breed can be truly proud and which hopefully will encourage quality in depth to flourish in Tollers in the UK. Dark red colour coat lying well and pleasing texture in good bloom with white feet and tail tipped a distinct kennel type from the winners but his qualities complemented those above him in all respects, just would have liked a tad more strength in his muzzle if being personally particular and both the winners had slightly superior muscle tone finish in their hindquarters in my view being similarly constructed as brothers. A dog I have always admired and I am confident the breed will inherit so much of value from him as a sire three beautifully dogs who could all change places on another day.

A dog I am very familiar with, I have judged him on a number of occasions and he always impresses.

Good depth to the body, ribs well sprung and loin muscular. Level in top line. Quarters well-made and muscled, stifles well bent. One of the best movers of the day, very impressive action in profile. Correct tail carriage on the move. Coat good with correct texture. He was winning the class up until the final run off but was untidy in front as he came towards me and this gave the edge to the first who it transpires is his litter brother.

1st Open Dog

Masculine head. Good skull, muzzle & jaws. Broad nose, attentive eye & expression, correct ears. Excellent head carriage, neck & lay of shoulder. Good upper arm, legs & feet. Well made all through with robust body & ribs, strong couplings & loin. Correct turn of hindquarters & tail carriage. Sound, free mover with excellent light, well co-ordinated gait in profile. Scored in type & outline. BD & BOB.


Sunday 11th September 2016 Richmond - Mr Gordon Haran (Magregor)

2nd Open Dog

Again a typical outline, could not match first on body and condition and was not as active on the move.


Sunday 4th September 2016 City of Birmingham - Mrs Judy Harrington (USA)

3rd Open Dog

1st Good Citizen Dog Scheme Dog

Correct breed type, good coming and going and holds topline well, would like a bit less body length.


Sunday 21st August 2016 Welsh Kennel Club (CC) - Mr Jonathan Daltrey (Bananadance)

1st Limit Dog

Another class of compromise here. I felt that this dog was by far the best in outline on the stack. His head is again perhaps not the most typical head for me, but saying that it is balanced & is masculine. He shows some extension in profile, however, I would definitely like to see a better spring of rib, more body & here, once again, was another example of less than ideal rear action.


Wednesday 17th August 2016 United Retriever - Mrs Jacqui Ward (Mianja)

2nd Limit Dog

Another quality exhibit of excellent breed type, at not quite 2 years this young man is maturing very nicely, a little stronger in the head than winner, he has expressive eyes, well set ears, straight well boned forelegs, tight feet, strong muscled neck, good angulation fore & aft, good body proportions, strong level topline, very well muscled hindquarters with developed 2nd thigh, moved very well with power & stamina, just lost out on maturity.

1st Post Graduate Dog

21 months, loved his balance outline, most pleasing masculine head, excellent angles to fore & rearquarters, well made through the ribs, strong loin & topline, good tailset. Well turned stifle, with good low hocks, a really sound mover, made good use of his tail, 1 just had the edge on rear movement over 2.

1st Open Dog

Challenging class that was headed by this young man. Only 20 months & lacking a little bit of maturity here but his quality stood out. Classic head piece of correct shape & definition, lovely dark eye. Strong through the neck which led on to a super angulated front, shoulders well set & standing on good legs & neat feet. Good depth to the body, ribs well sprung & loin muscular. Level in topline. Quarters well made & muscled, stifles well bent. One of the best movers of the day, very impressive action in profile & fore & aft. Correct tail carriage on the move. Coat good with correct texture. I really liked this chap & he pushed the veteran winner hard for top honours. I think with a little maturity he could go far. RBD.

In great condition, fit, well muscled and shown to advantage CC and BOB.

So much has been said & written about this young man & after judging him I can see why. Stood out in this class. Excels in many areas. Lovely head & neck, well laid shoulders, deep chest with forechest, well ribbed back to a short loin, lovely rear angles, correct tailset & carried well. True on the move coming & going with correct jaunty gait. Had to work hard in the challenge against the open winner but just had the edge on the move. BD
