LONDON COCKER SPANIEL CLUB – BITCHES Woking Leisure Centre – 07th December 2019
Thank you to the Secretary and commi2ee for invi5ng me to judge this pres5gious championship show.
Thanks, also to the exhibitors for entrus5ng me with their charges, all be it flee5ngly and for their entry.
In general, I found presenta5on to be of a high standard, the majority clean with li2le or few knots. However, I feel the need to comment on the high number of suspect mouth’s I found, a scissor bite is a scissor bite, not a level bite or a scissor bite with a tooth out of alignment.
Loved my main winners for their breed type and true sound movement.
