Breed: ROTTWEILER CLUB OF WALES OPEN SHOW

THE ROTTWEILER CLUB OF WALES

October 9th 2015

Judge – Ms Tracy Morgan (Rossimon)

My sincere thanks to the Club for the warm welcome and to each and every exhibitor for your outstanding sportsmanship from start to finish, it made for a very enjoyable experience for everyone. I have not exhibited a Rottweiler since the late 80’s and have not observed them closely at ringside for over a decade. My hat goes off to you for being such good custodians of this beautiful breed. I was faced with a wonderful collection of very sound, typey Rotts, which bodes well for the future. You are doing your mentors proud!

Handling has come such a long way in the 30 years I have known the Rottie breed ring, but please be very careful when placing fronts, there is a temptation to ‘A frame’ in order to get maximum ‘showy’ effect and the prosternum vanishes, which effects the balance of outline some judges seek!
