As I was the first UK judge to award CCs to this breed and have judged them at this level more than anyone I feel qualified to pass some comments on the breed today.

The two main things to remember when judging Havanese are length, the length of the nose to stop should be equal to the length of stop to occiput, a short muzzle is not correct although it might look sweet. That is not the expression required.

 It is not a square dog, it is slightly longer in back than height, the length comes from the ribcage not the loin which must be short and strong.

Havanese have a very typical movement in front it is short and springy, due to the short upper arm and drive from behind there is no long reach which is a fault which seems to have crept in, it might look good on a Shih Tzu but not is not correct on Havanese.

Class 157 VD (2 Entries) Abs: 1

1st: 556 GROCOCK Mr P Aust Carnwath Coolangatta Gold For Havalag (Imp)

Nearly 9 years old and has lost interest in showing but his owner still enjoys his day out. The standard says slightly longer than tall but this boy is not balanced as he is too long in body and his coat  has become fluffy rather than wavy.





Class 158 PD (2 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: 563 MARCHBANK Mrs H Versailles Senor Theodore

B&T mature youngster with sturdy body, balanced, level topline with good ribs for age. Good layback of shoulder, straight front, medium bone, a little close behind on the move yet. Correct proportions in head with equal length from nose to stop and stop to occiput and dark almond shaped eyes giving that friendly expression. BP

2nd: 580 YOUNG Mrs J & Mr R Newpark Petit Indien Rouge

Lively baby still rather immature in body shape, balanced head dark expressive eyes well set on ears. Firm front with good shoulder placement.




Class 159 JD (3 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: 578 TARFF Mr & Mrs J & S Immeleon Artimis

R&W very lively and outgoing which tended to affect his movement as he was nearly on the run, will settle down with age am sure. Well balanced throughout with correct length to height, good ribs and tuck up. Correct proportions to head giving friendly expression, dark eyes good pigment well set on ears

2nd: 561 JONES Miss A Tynebears Rock On Bertie

Cream threw his chances away as needs more ring training. Sound mover when settled with correct silky slightly waved coat.

3rd: 557 GROCOCK Mr P Havalag Karaginski

Solid, balanced in body and head, dark almond eyes good pigment, correct head proportions. Good front with well laid shoulders, moved with correct springy steps, short in front and drive from behind.





Class 161 LD (1 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: 568 MILES Mrs L Adorele I'm The One

B&W One of the most correct movers on the day with short springy front and drive from behind. Balanced head, good pigment good ear set, enough length of neck to support head correctly. Sturdy well shaped body, level back with enough rise over the loin, firm behind, tight hare feet. Correct texture coat. Res DCC





Class 162 OD (9 Entries) Abs: 4

1st: 566 MCCALLUM-SEALY Miss H Ch Pandaprint Believe In Magic JW

Correct proportions from nose to stop and stop to occiput which gives the correct expression with flat cheeks, good pigment, broad well set ears, dark expressive eyes. Balanced body but can sometimes stand covering too much ground which makes him look long, solid body with good ribs, rise over firm loins good tuck up. High tail set, in good silky slightly wavy coat and moved typically with short springy front and drive from behind DCC & BOB

2nd: 584 YOUNG, Mrs J A & HARPER Mrs J Prairiwinds Dream Maker (Imp)

A lively affectionate baby with lovely temperament. Already the makings of a balanced body with good ribs for age, straight front, level back good feet.

2nd: 564 MARCHBANK Mrs H Havieras Shiny Shinx

Still very immature but enjoying the day. Promising head with good pigment. Tail needs to settle, correct springy steps.




Class 165 JB (5 Entries) Abs: 2

1st: 553 DIXON HARDWICK Mrs M & Miss C Puplicity's All I Ask

Although not in full coat it is the correct texture. Balanced body shape with straight front good shoulders, good ribs for age, level topline. High tailset.

2nd: 577 SMITH Mrs S Tiggafield Ebony Eyes

B&W Would like a better texture of coat, not really silky or soft. Correct mover with springy steps which are so typical of the breed. Very good pigment and expression, not as balanced in body as winner.

3rd: 558 GROCOCK Mr P Havalag Eziyra



Class 166 PGB (4 Entries) Abs: 1

1st: 554 FITZGERALD Mrs J Immeleon Galactica For Beaugem JW

2nd: 576 SMITH Mrs S El Perrito Step In Time

Not quite as confident as winner which tended to show in her movement, rather short stepping. Good shape and size.

3rd: 543 BETTISON Mrs J Havieras Shaan Xi



Class 167 LB (6 Entries) Abs: 2

1st: 544 BETTISON Miss R Minniebell Nahla's Dream

Extremely well balanced head, with broad skull, flat cheeks and dark almond eyes giving that typical friendly expression. Good balanced body shape, level back with slight rise over well muscled loin, short upper arm giving correct free springy step. High tail set, good coat of silky soft texture. Res BCC

2nd: 567 MCCALLUM-SEALY Miss H Pandaprint's Anastasia JW

I liked this bitch when a puppy, today just let herself down on front movement, rather choppy instead of free. She has the correct shoulder placement and short upper arm with front under body so assume this was just a fault on the day. Balanced head, good expression, good ribs, high tailset, very promising.

3rd: 574 SMITH Miss K L Larwinsca Princess Leia for Mooncast

Res: 583 YOUNG Mrs J & Mr R Nora Jones Biely Luc (Imp)


Class 168 OB (6 Entries) Abs: 2

1st: 575 SMITH Mrs S Tiggafield Isn't She Lovely

So well named as she is lovely in every angle, balanced solid body, good ribs, level back strong loin, enough angulation behind to give the drive that goes with the free springy movement in front. Correct shape of head with equal from nose to stop and stop to occiput, enough  breadth of skull, moderate stop and dark almond eyes with lovely expression.  Very good pigmentation. Coat of correct silky soft texture with enough wave and correct length. BCC

2nd: 569 MILES Mrs L Adorele A Perfect World

Another in good coat of correct length so that there is some daylight, silky, soft with enough undercoat. Good mover with correct free springy step and drive from behind. Firm body with good ribs.
