Ive Not judged the breed for 4years in the UK and whilst i still maintain the size, coat, eyes and proportions are more unified i was a little concerned about a number of exhibits that dont have straight forelegs, some noticeable before I even felt them. Skulls could be improved where many were too flat and have an almost PBGV look to them, i liked both open classes along with a couple of other promising bitches. 


1)masculine dog with super bone and substance, dark eye, skull. a little flat, deep muzzle, good feet. Straight forelegs, Deep chest with harsh coat all through the, needs to settle in front . Correct moderate front, still raw and needs to drop and lengthen into himself but that should come.

2)nicely proportioned dog. Who needs to settle all through, long ears, dark eye, skull also a little flat, tight feet, prefer firmer topline, thick tail of good length, outgoing mover with nice temperament.


1)handsome upstanding male with good proportions, dark expressive eye, skull a little fat, good pigment. prominent occiput, straight forelegs. Moderate rear angles. Firm back, nice harsh coat, tail a little straight, positive mover in firm condition but needs to drop in front and pastern.BP

2)correct masculine headed dog, good skull with defined stop, large nose, low set ears, good size. Needs to develop in front. Dense body coat, tail well set. Nice to go over but prefer more body, rear a bit close. 


1) really nicely headed male with a real noble appearance, lower stationed dog with strong bone, deep chest. Level back and correct set of tail. Forelegs could be straighter,Correct moderate rear. Would prefer him a little stronger in pastern, steady mover, excellent coat. Typey dog 


1) 2 nice dogs in this class, correct head and skull, ears of good length, prominent occiput, good stop, prefer slightly straighter forelegs. Deep chest with ribs extending well back, muscled loin. Correct rear angulation, tail carriage a little high, where he scores is in his purposeful positive movement, in nice condition all through with a dense harsh body coat. CC and BOB

2)super dark eye with broad and deep muzzle and good lips, a little flat in skull. Excellent coat in body and legs, Strong bone, well sprung ribs, ok rear, preferred topline on winner, thick tail of good length, 2 nice dogs just felt winner moved out slightly better.RDCC


1)very raw and needs to pull it all together still. Lovely low set ears. Feminine head and skull. Tight feet, needs to come up on leg a little , long ribs, dense coat, needs to drop in rear as topline is unsettled.

2)stronger bitch than 1, liked her muzzle, a little flat in skull. Prominent forechest. Needs to come up on leg, good bone and feet, excellent spring of rib, crisp coat, thick tail. Just lacks animation on the move,


1)typey bitch all through with a nice shape and size. Expressive head with a good skull and lovely dark eyes , low set ears of good length, straight forelegs. Holds her back line, moderate rear, tail could be thicker. Super coat, lots to like about her and pushed for top honours just ideally like a little more drive in the rear. 


1)this bitch just has a lovely balance and shape to her with breed type running through her, still needs to fill out into her frame but her proportions are so correct, moderate all through, nothing exaggerated which is seen too often in my opinion. Easy sound gait, covering ground with little effort, chest deep, Correct skull with a dark eye, has strength of skull but still feminine with a nice expression, ears supple and long, correct straight forelegs, super feet, coat is good all over. Her tail could have a better carriage but it is up enough for the breed, a quality bitch who will mature and in time win well i feel. Was told it was her first, more will come....

2)outgoing bitch who took awhile to settle. For me she is a little too petit in head. Lovely straight forelegs, deep chest, holds her back, hocks a bit high, nice coat, preferred proportions of winner


1)a nicely headed bitch, eye could be a tad darker, low set long ears with lovely big dark nose. Deep chest with good ribbing. A little steep in shoulder. Muscular loin, tail of good length but could be thicker. Parallel rear movement, coat a little soft except on back.


1)very honest and unexaggerated all through, low set ears, good muzzle, nicely built front assembly which she uses to her advantage. Deep chest with nice proportions and size, the Lots to like when your get your hands on her, thick tail of good length carried in breed fashion.RBCC

2)another honest example of the breed. A little taller than 1, super head and expression.long ears, shoulder a little steep, straight forelegs with tight feet, lovely harsh coat, moderate rear which she also uses well on the move, holding her topline with good tail carriage, today i just preferred scope on 1


1)nicely headed bitch. So well balanced and proportioned, big ribs, bone, feet and rear very good. Thick tail of good length, a bit wide in front, nice type with a nice temperament, body coat is harsh.
