Welsh Kennel Club

Breed: Chinese Crested

I would like to thank all the exhibitors for their entry and my very competent stewards for their hard work and for making my day so enjoyable.

 

I would just like to say I do have some concerns about our breed in general.

I found many dogs were large, course in head and heavy throughout . There were a lot of round eyes and many did not comply with my interpretation of the breed standard, which requires cheeks cleanly chiselled ,lean and flat tapering into the muzzle.

I urge exhibitors to remember the Chinese Crested is meant to be an graceful elegant toy breed and we should be striving to retain the elegance and breed features that others before us have already achieved.

 

Veteran Dog (2) 1 Oliver’s Peter Pan at Sarelidan- Mahogany hairless of pleasing size and proportion, refined head, good bite , strong alert ears, firm topline, lovely skin, fully of personality on the move.

2 Hampson’s Zerachiel Element of True – Masculine dog shown in good condition.

Head balanced but strong in cheek, nice dark eye, strong ears, excellent mouth, strong body with nice depth of chest, topline could be better, nice tail set, move ok.

 

Minor puppy dog (2, 1) 1 Snell’s Anadeia Rain Dance – just 6mths with a happy personality. Nice size, head proportions ok but a little full in the cheeks, nice dark eye, strong well placed ears, nice rib, fine skin, would prefer more length and a looser tail, unable to assess his movement due to him being over enthusiastic.

  

Puppy Dog (2,1) 1 Dale’s Dalrosmics Latinus– Masculine dog who is well up to size , balanced head, dark eye, strong well placed ears, lovely mouth, straight front , nice Harefoot, firm body with good length, would prefer a shorter hock, drove from behind but rather erratic in front.  

2 Hampson’s Zerachel Ti Wei Te – preferred the size and movement over winner but heavy in back skull and rather short in muzzle , I can only presume he is still teething as bite was off and he also had a problem with his ear carriage . 

 

Junior Dog (6,1) Piper’s Be My Dog’s Topsail Coady of Zanjero JW – Super type and excellent outline when stood. Balanced head but a little heavy in cheek, good mouth, nice eye, strong ears, pleasing neck straight front but rather upright which restricted his front movement, nice body with good length, strong level topline which he kept on the move, dog and handler need to work together as there was no fluidity when moving.

2 Faquharson’s Shanshal Prince of Arabia – immaculately presented pp of love size , pleasing head with nice shaped eye, well set erected ears, correct bite, nice front, body still needs to develop, good topline which he kept on the move, would prefer a better tail carriage.

3 Snell’s Udo Jansen Huezdy.

  

Post Graduate Dog (9 ) 1 Rees Parcauwen Secrect Liaison – well presented elegant PP, lovely size with correct bone , nicely balanced head with well shaped almond eye, good mouth, nice front construction, moderate neck, would like a stronger body and tail not carried as high, moved soundly.

3 piper & Peppett’s Baron Winning Smile for Zanjero.
