Bath Canine Society

Breed: Chow Chow

Bath Ch Show 26/5/2019

Chow Chows

My first Championship Show appointment with the breed and nine years since I passed the JCCTS seminars. My thanks to the efficient stewards and welcoming show society. The Bath showground goes from strength to strength. I had some lovely dogs to go over. The breed always challenges decision making in the ring but I really enjoyed this appointment.

Lovely puppy with good strength throughout. Short, strong coupling. Lovely head with good muzzle shape and broad skull. Well set ears. Moving soundly with a good swinging movement. Excellent tail set. Lovely presentation BPD and BPIB

2nd: 3507 GODBER Mr S B & Mrs P M Lechan Rodrik

Very much a baby puppy but with huge promise. Standing square when settled. Good neck, body and profile. Many breed attributes but head needs to broaden yet. Excellent tail set and moved soundly when he concentrated.

Class 1432 JD (4 Entries) Abs: 1

1st: 3527 SMITH Mrs H Deli Tiger Sapling To Helyenhu (Imp) It

A black on the smaller end of the standard, but everything is in proportion. The best of bodies and the tightest of loins. Well set tail. Fabulous head and good muzzle. Great bone and feet. Very sound and typical gait. I would like a little more of him all over, but a promising youngster.

2nd: 3519 LOVELL Mrs P Dragonsway Bogan at Pamlor

A square chap standing, taller than 1. Good head and eye. Needs to develop more in the rib yet. Very firm first and second thighs and well set on tail. Moving out with drive which was sound but not breed specific.

3rd: 3502 CUMMINS, Mr A M & ROGERS Mrs S I Fulangs First Impressions

Class 1434 PGD (2 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: 3497 ASHMORE Miss R J Moywan Hamal

Good bone and body on this well tempered lad. I would prefer more neck for his size and a better tail set. Moving freely.

2nd: 3517 LINDSAY Mrs D JD Lindchow Bao Peng

Well presented male. At one time he would have been what was required in the breed, but for me he is overdone and not as sound on the move as 1.

Class 1435 LD (5 Entries) Abs: 0

Two quality blacks heading this class

1st: 3508 GODBER Mr S B & Mrs P M Jenrene's Mighty Zack At Lechan

In fabulous condition, this boy stands 4 square and really enjoys himself in the ring. Clean head with good proportions and enough muzzle. Good strong neck going into clean shoulder. Moving soundly with balanced front and rear action producing a pendulum gait. Very straight on the up and down. Excellent tail set. Dog CC.

2nd: 3515 JAKEMAN Mrs S L Tanlap Tarron

Many of the same remarks apply but he lacked body coat on the day. Head is lovely with good width across muzzle and skull. Again, a sound mover with typical side gait.

3rd: 3511 GREEN Mr R Jamarhys Draig Goch

1st: 3520 PARSONS Mrs J Jenrene's Mighty Enzo

Lighter built male than 1 but many good qualities. Good neck and firm body. Rather well developed stifles meaning he moves out soundly but not typically.

Neat black bitch in excellent double coat. Standing 4 square, she presents a well balanced picture with all proportions just right. Lovely head and well set ears. Good neck into firm body and coupling. Moderate matching angles front and rear. Well set on tail. Beautifully presented. CC and BOB. I thought my dog and bitch excellent representatives of the breed. The bitch just appealed a little more on the last go round.
