Scottish Kennel Club

Breed: King Charles Spaniel

Scottish Kennel Club May 2018 – King Charles Spaniel

I would like to thank the Scottish Kennel Club and its Committee for inviting me at their show for my first CC judging appointment in my beloved breed and all the exhibitors for their sportsmanship and support. I had lovely dogs to choose from. Overall I found that temperament has improved a lot as all the dogs moved in the ring, some more happily than others. Everyone had well open nostrils as it should be in a healthy dog. I just would like to mention that some attention should be paid to movement specially the back one which is not as sound as it should be in some exhibits.
