Judge: Mrs Chris John

This is a lovely show, well attended and a really nice atmosphere. I was delighted with my entry and even more delighted with the very low absentee rate, which says a lot about the exhibitors opinion of the day. If I have a gripe, it’s about the ring, which I would have liked to have seen as a little larger and more appropriate to the size and needs of the dogs I was judging. Unfortunately it was difficult to properly assess movement, for which I had to make allowances in some classes.
