My thanks to the Crufts show committee for inviting me to judge, my stewards who kept the ring flowing and of course the exhibitors for accepting my decisions. It was a super entry.

Having shown and judged the breed over a number of years, I have a few concerns. We are losing breed type, many are lacking substance, no angulation (front & rear), movement, and lack of double coat. It is important to keep the construction and aptitude to maintain the unique Toller traits.

After saying that, overall I was pleased with my main winners.


Veteran Dog (15 entries)

Strong class to start with. It was a pleasure to judge and a close decision between all three.

1stLoebel AM GCH DANEHAVEN MCEACHERN
Delighted to go over this boy. He has good head, clean neck and shoulder construction. In full coat. Straight front and stood on tight feet. Correct rear angulation and well muscled. Moved out well belying his age.
2ndBurchell TIVALAKE JINGLE BELL ROCK SHCM RL2
Difficult decision between 1. Balanced head with correct ear placement. Good reach of neck. Correct shoulder angulation and straight front. Well muscled quarters allowing free flowing movement with drive. Unlucky to come against 1.
3rdPalfrey FOXDOWN BERTIE ALLSORTS SHCM
Have judged this boy previously, he has excellent shoulders, strong legs and well bodied. In good coat and condition. Level topline on the move. Nicely muscled quarters. Moved steadily and soundly.
