Manchester Dog Show Society

Breed: Chihuahua (Long Coat)

Manchester Championship Show

18th January 2019

Judge: Patrick McDevitt (Keenaughts)

I would like to thank the committee of Manchester Dog Show Society for inviting me to judge at their championship show and thank my 2 stewards for keeping my ring moving efficiently, although we didn’t get started until 10am, we still managed to finish up in plenty of time. Thank you to everyone for bringing their dogs under me, I had a super entry of 147 chihuahuas and I know that the weather was a bit unkind for travelling that morning. It has been 6 years since I judged the long coats so all dogs were entirely new to me. Mouths have improved greatly just a few bites still needs to be watched. Males were a lot stronger in type & quality with some exciting younger males knocking on the door, whereas some variations in females, some are getting smaller in size and in bone which won’t help the breeding programme for the future.
