Swedish Vallhund

J D/B (3) 1st Perry & Etches’ Starvon Cryptic Spyda. Lovely young dog of ideal body proportions. Good wedge-shaped head, correct stop and blunt muzzle. Excellent eye shape, dark and expressive. Correct ear shape, thickness and set well. Good reach of neck leading to a well laid shoulder. Deep chest, firm topline and muscular quarters. Excellent markings. Moved soundly in all directions but could put a bit more in. Well handled. BD & BOB.

2nd Hackney’s Starvon Bring It On. Another lovely male, slightly lighter in colour than 1st and equally well marked. Good head and expression. Not quite as developed in chest or spring of rib as 1st, but presents a pleasing outline both on the stack and on the move. Sound in all directions.

3rd Howe’s Danga’s Diva X Dotter Of Valaller. Pretty, feminine bitch. Slightly different type, good overall proportions. Excellent head and expression. Excellent mover from profile, just needs to settle a bit coming to. Happy showgirl. RBB.

O D/B (3) 1st S Cryptic Spyda.

2nd Howe’s Pepperthyme On A Rainbow. Liked this bitch. Feminine in outlook with an excellent wedge-shaped head. Oval, dark eye and excellent ears which she use to enhance her expression. Muscular neck, well balanced all through with good bone for her size. Took time to settle but once she did, displayed good reach and drive with a moderate stride. Good markings. Well presented. BB

3rd Hackney’s Starvon All About Me. Strong, masculine dog. Super headpiece with typical markings. Good conformation but slightly long in back for ideal proportion. Excellent bone and tight feet. Easy mover, sound in all directions. RBD.
