Judge Alison Richardson
I would like to thank the committee for the invitation to judge some excellent examples of the breed, well done yet again for a very well-run show; I had a very enjoyable day. Thank you to the exhibitors for your entry and for accepting my decisions showing great sportsmanship on the day. Some hard decisions to be made in some classes which were full of quality exhibits, some places could easily change in the future, open dog and open bitch and junior classes. All exhibits were in great show quality and temperaments sound.

Pleasing body shape, elbows which are tucked tightly into chest with sufficient forechest, strong defined top line which is carried well when moving, front and rear angels are developing well sufficient turn of stifle, well up on his legs already for a youngster would like to see him settle more on the move to show his drive and movement to its advantage.
