Golden Retriever Critiques

Thank you to the warm and welcoming Committee for inviting me to judge at your show I had a very enjoyable day. Unfortunately the show coincided with the Eastern Counties GRC Championship Show but none-the-less I was presented with some excellent quality dogs.


Puppy (6,4)

1. Gowland & Gibbons’ Tamara Von Schnellenberge For Remington (Imp Deu). A 7 month old bitch with a typical, feminine head with dark pigment. She has excellent forehand construction with a strong, level top-line. Moved straight and true throughout the day. I am sure she has a bright future ahead. Best Puppy in Breed and 3rd BPIS - well done!

2. Davies’ Crisansa Mr Coggan. 7 month old dog with a strong, masculine head. Great overall balance. Plenty of bone. Dark pigmentation. Movement wasn’t as steady as 1.


Junior (4,3)

1. Turner’s Bowshella Bedazzled. Excellent front angulation, strong level top line, good reach of neck. Very pretty, feminine head. Moved well around the ring.


Graduate (6,5)

1. Jones’ Luamber Perceptive Penny. 3 year old bitch with an undeniably feminine head with a soft expression. Level topline, good rear angulation. Excellent overall balance. 


Post Graduate (5,2)

1. Millington’s Carneval Of Golden Duck (Imp Srb). 3 year old dog with a strong, masculine head, excellent reach of neck, level topline completed with the correct tail set. Moved well with drive. Pushed hard for best of breed.

2. Plevin’s Bowshella Razzle Dazzle. Level topline, good reach of neck, longer in body than 1. Feminine head with soft expression.

3. Jones’ Luamber Perceptive Penny.


Open (6,2)

1. Magson’s Castlegolden Classy Lady JW. Won this high quality class with style. Strong, level topline and correct tail-set. Tight, cat-like feet, feminine head with soft expression and dark pigmentation. Moved consistently with reach and drive with her tail level to her topline throughout. Best of Breed.

2. Millington’s Mitcharron Buster Keeton JW ShCM. Another lovely dog who could switch with 1 on another day. The softest expression on his masculine head with dark pigment. Excellent front angulation. Feet were tight and cat-like. Well boned. Level topline which he held on the move.

3. Scholes’ Goldenhicks Churchill At Rossgilde JW.
