Alaskan Malamutes

Thank you to the committee for this, my third CC appointment. I would like to thank my stewards, Roger & Penny who did a fantastic job of keeping the ring running perfectly. Thank you to the exhibitors for their entries, and accepting my decisions well, giving a lovely atmosphere. Again, as with my last appointment, I noted a great general athleticism in most of the breed, something I look for in the exhibits. Unfortunately, we are still seeing front construction & front movement faults and I did find a few level bites. However, overall I think the quality shown today was of an outstanding level.
