Breed: Kooikerhondje

City Of Birmingham Canine Association 2019 – 1st November 

Kooikerhondje 

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 but trying to get everyone in time for the group judging. Unfortunately several exhibitors left before judging. 

I was very much looking forward to judge this breed in the UK. Not an easy breed for its breeders with this small population which showed some diversity in types. But just saying that also on the continent there can be that diversity in types too. In general I found that several needed a more compact, shorter and almost square shape and balance to show the correct breed type. Tails are a concern as too many were too high and curved and some curled over the back. A few colours were not right either in white or red.

1st: 7729 HEARSON Miss J A Gladsheim Acer At Jumasue  

Good type but would like to see better balance with a more compact outline. Lovely head and expression. Excellent body and ribs for age. Nice colour, sufficient amount of red. Tail correct at rest but too high and curled over back on the move. Typical breed gait. This is my Best puppy. 

 

2nd: 7736 POWELL Mrs F Gladsheim Poplar  

Could be a little more masculine. Rather fine overall. Long in body and needs to be more compact. Showing a little too much amount of red. Tail correct at rest but too high and curled over back on the move.

1st: 7733 KENNEDY Mrs E M Crunchcroft Onyx  

Masculine dog of good type and proportions. Nice masculine head and expression. Well made in body, bone and angulations. Prefer a deeper colour and better balance between white and red. Needs better tail carriage on the move and although breed typical gait needs more temperament.

1st: 7731 JOHNSON Miss C Sensation Vom Tespelkooi Of Valleyrise (Imp)  

Excellent type. She is very nice little girl, just prefered to see her with a little more size. Loved her very nice feminine head with correct balance and proportions. She has a very much breed typical expression. Topline could just be that little more level. Nice body and angulations. Nice deep red coulour but a little better balance between white and red preferred. She has a very much breed typical gait with correct tail at rest and on the move. She became my Best bitch and also Best of Breed.
