Many Thanks to the committee for my invite to judge Dachshunds non ccs at Driffield championship show has always been a favourite of mine and it is such a honour to judge at this show. The sun didint let us down and it was warm, a few exhibits showed affect of the heat in their performance but i did not penalise for it. I thank all exhibitors for my entry and showing good sportsmanship. Overall the quality was high a few dogs were let down by lack of training, a few handlers need to find a good ringcraft. I was disappointed to see dirty teeth on far too many exhibits, feet also seem to be very flat and nails far too long on too many.
