I enjoyed judging Bullmastiff with Challenge Certificates for the first time at Bath Championship Show. Thank you to the Officers and Committee for their invitation and to all exhibitors for their support and sporting way they accepted my decisions. I was generally pleased with all my winners but must comment that there seems to be a lack of importance being paid to dentition and mouths generally. There is a very clear “Mouth” clause in the breed standard and breeders and exhibitors must be more aware to take account of what is required; I have not commented on mouths in my critique of individual dogs.
