Belfast Dog Show Society

Breed: Utility Group

      Utility Group

 As always it is a great pleasure to be invited to judge at Belfast. From the minute you arrive, the committee, exhibitors and fellow judges all seem to be there for a good time and to enjoy all that is great about dogs in Ireland. Good Ian Wilson, Jackie Stubbs, Christopher Cathcart and the rest of the team make you welcome and put on a relaxed friendly and lovely event.


 I pulled out for further consideration the Miniature Schnauzer, Tibetan Terrier, Eurasier and Shih Tzu along with the four placed dogs

GROUP 1

CH TIMAZINTI LIBERTY Breed: Lhasa Apso (MRS J & MS S SCARLL & SYKES)

A bitch I have judged before and done well for. She is in full bloom of maturity, feminine and of lovely outline. Love her head and expression, neck topline and overall balance. She holds her outline on the move and in profile looked great going around the big ring.

Group 2

ANDLARE OKEY DOKEY Breed: Bulldog (MR A R & MRS C L BANNISTER)

Still not at full maturity but looking lovely from all angles. Clean head not overdone and good expression with correct eye shape and placement. Good width to muzzle with sweep and jaw and layback. Strong neck with correct front nice rise to rear and strong retardation. Moved soundly and typically again keeping his outline at all times.

Group3

CH/NED CH DEDICATED TO DON'T WASTE TIME SUSU JW JW'14 W'17 (IMP NLD) Breed: Tibetan Spaniel (MISS C L COOPER)

Lovely balance and proportions. He has a good head shape with correct shape size and placed ears with desired lift. Good topline. Nice amount of coat of good texture. Very sound and collected on the move

Group 4

INT CH JEZEBEL THE ASTONISHING SOPHTSPOT JW (IMP NLD) Breed: Dalmatian (MRS J CHRISTIE)

What a super mover she is. Balanced and of generous proportions. Beautiful body condition and musculature. Put on a great show
