Breed: Finnish Lapphund

National Working & Pastoral Breeds Society 2019 Finnish Lapphund

Judge: Mrs S Bird

  I would like to thank my two very able stewards who kept the ring running smoothly. I did feel that a few dogs where a tad overweight & also we seem to be getting shorter tails coming in. I don’t worry to much about coat as that will always grow, especially in the bitches who drop coat around seasons. A couple of the dogs I had judged as youngsters & felt they have matured on to make lovely typical examples of the breed.
