Richmond Dog Show Society

Breed: Siberian Husky

Thank you for asking me to judge today. My entry was of good quality. The ring was not good being half in and out with a massive hole in the middle so assessing movement was challenging as the entire centre of the ring had to be avoided to prevent possible injury to handler and dog. Some of the dogs who I know have moved better really did not cope with this ring which was a shame.
