Manchester Dog Show Society

Breed: Dalmatian

I think we could have wished for a larger ring, I tried to make the best of what we had, hence so much individual moving, Temperaments were excellent with a few jumping up for a cuddle. Well laid shoulders were very hard to find, which will make improving on this fault difficult for breeders. Strangely movement wasn’t too bad, in part im sure as the dogs seem to want to please, and also because most of the entry was beautifully muscled up.
