My thanks for being invited to judge at your Breed Club Championship Show, a great atmosphere, good stewards and some pleasing dogs to go over.

As a Gundog All-Rounder and a Retriever person first and foremost it hit me that I did not find too many of the fronts that I expected. You are a Retriever breed, so picking up birds tirelessly requires the correct lever construction to the forehand. Your Standard says very little, but the Canadian Standard (Country of origin) states "the shoulder blade and upper arm are roughly equal in length with the upper arm well angled back under the body".

I know the breed is still evolving here in the UK, so many things have been sorted out already, size of leg length etc, but some still need attention to make the dog as functional as possible, so points to watch to me seem, feet & pasterns and the rear movement which could be rather close at times. You know your breed better than me but as a judge of retrievers for over forty years, who tries to make sure all her own dogs are as functional as possible these points will only make for a more balanced working dog.

I was so pleased to see such good entries in both dogs and bitches in your Special Working Classes, I know I have "gone on a bit" but sometimes it needs an outsider to take in the whole picture.
