Breed: French Bulldog

The Scottish Kennel Club Championship Show

19 May 2019

FRENCH BULLDOGS

I had a splendid entry of 91 French Bulldogs to judge at the Scottish Kennel Club Championship Show

My two stewards, Mr Mark Walshaw and Mr Bob Burns kept the process running smoothly and efficiently enabling me to complete my judging in good time.

During the course of the judging I noticed some exhibits with flat , splayed feet, some had white nails and a few with weak pasterns which cost some exhibits a higher place. Generally tails are improving.
