City Of Birmingham Canine Association 2019 – 1st November 

Lagotto Romagnolo 

Judge: Mr R Blomme (Belgium)  

  

My thanks to the City of Birmingham committee for their hospitality and for having invited me to judge on this special 75th anniversary show. Many thanks to my ring stewards. Many thanks to the exhibitors, for having entered their dogs which I really have very much appreciated. I am very sorry not having been able to spend more time and being more extended in my critiques seen the late start of my judging and trying to get everyone in time for the group judging. 

I was very much looking forward to judge this breed in the UK. I found that generally dogs as well as bitches were of good size and type. However I felt several could have been more compact and shorter in body, often needing a little higher in withers and stronger back giving that breed specific topline. Some also need better proportions and higher on the legs.  

  

Veteran dog (2 Entries) Abs: 0

This is a very nice dog, type what I was looking for. Liked him very much and good example of the breed. Good proportions and nice size. Masculine head with nice proportions, eye and expression. Excellent short body and correct angulations. Standing on good legs. Good withers slightly above topline. Topline could be a little firmer. Was excellent on the move. Nice coat and structure. He became Best veteran, Best dog and Best of Breed.
