Great Yarmouth Gorleston & District Canine Society

Thank you to the committee for my appointment. I would like to thank my two stewards, who ran the rings with efficiency. Thank you too, to the exhibitors for their entries. The carpet was a little slippery on the corners for some dogs on the move, but I had a large enough ring that I was able to asses them fully.

Strong arched neck, which lowered on the move. Matching, well angulated shoulder & rear. Forward facing, medium compact feet. Close elbows. Front & rear pasterns strong. Perfectly level topline, held on the move. Correctly sloping croup. Well muscled & weight OK. Tail set & carriage correct. Effortless, sound movement with powerful reach & drive.
