Dogue De Bordeaux

Judge: Mr D Killilea

Such a pleasure to judge this breed, one I really enjoy. Lovely atmosphere around the ring with such an enthusiastic and supportive group of people. One point to note, quite a few of the exhibits could do with attention paying to their pressure points on elbows and rear legs as some looked quite sore.
