BERKSHIRE DOWNS & CHILTERNS GOLDEN RETRIEVER CLUB OPEN SHOW

SUNDAY 6 JULY 2014

JUDGE: PAULA HILL – SANDAULA

I thoroughly enjoyed my day and wish to thank the hard working Committee for another well-run show. It was an honour to be asked to judge. We were very lucky with the weather and I hope everyone enjoyed his or her day as much as I did. I do have a couple of concerns, that I feel need to be mentioned. I was surprised to find quite a few dogs out at elbows and where is our lovely topline and tail set disappearing to, standing or on the move? There were also a few incorrect mouths in the lower classes and my placing’s reflected these concerns.
