I thank Manchester Dog Show for my invitation to judge this beautiful breed and thank the exhibitors for their support.

I enjoyed my judging but would highlight that front and especially rear movement needs attention and also some quality dogs were relegated down the line due to dental hygiene problems.

I was very satisfied with my winners and I congratulate the Best of Breed on being short-listed in the Group
