WELSH KENNEL CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW

Saturday 17th August 2019

ALASKAN MALAMUTES Judge: Charlotte John

My first time awarding CC’s, and I would like to thank the Committee of the Welsh Kennel Club for giving me this opportunity. I thoroughly enjoyed my day.

A huge thank you to all those that supported me - what the entry lacked in quantity it certainly made up for in quality, which was generally excellent and made for some difficult decisions. I would also like to thank my two ring stewards, whose humour, attention and professionalism made my experience all the more memorable.
