I thoroughly enjoyed judging this breed again. Type was a little varied and some exhibits were a little lacking in substance and bone. Some of the rear movement was also a little closer than I would like. I was extremely pleased with my top winners and had no idea until I filled out the cards afterwards that they were all bred by the same kennel.

Not judged him before but I loved him. Ex overall balance. True head shape with clean cut skull, flat cheeks and moderate stop. Good layback of shoulder and corresponding return of upper arm. Deep chest with elbows close to brisket and well ribbed back. Short loin. Powerful, well muscled hindquarters. Excellent bone and feet. Movement was accurate both fore and aft.

Top quality dog who is a very worthy title holder. Good head with clean cheeks and moderate stop. Correct length of neck. Well laid shoulder and return of upper arm. Deep chest. Well ribbed back leading to short loin and well made hindquarters. In excellent coat and condition. Moved well at one with his handler. In the challenge he just seemed to lack his earlier enthusiasm and didn't move with the same drive and sadly had to pay the price.
