Breed: Retriever (Nova Scotia Duck Tolling)

United Retriever Club Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever

This was to be Babs Harding’s appointment, and I am sure everyone sends her their best wishes. I must make particular comment about the great sportsmanship in the breed, great to see, clearly everyone enjoyed their day.. I think movement is very good, as is presentation and conditioning – a few too thin and a few more too heavy. What is rather varied is type. All had good bites.
