Thank you to the exhibitors for a super entry and a most enjoyable day. I had some fantastic dogs present for which I was most grateful. I have no hesitation is stating that the overall standard today was far superior to the last time I judged. There were some most promising youngsters present which all bodes well for the future.

1st: Payne, Dunlop & Mclellan’s Habiba Boy Trouble. For me it was really worth spending a little extra time in examining the head of this youngster as it meets my interpretation of the breed standard. Lovely shape and overall size, excellent for neck, shoulders and rear angulations all producing a great forehand reach and strong propulsion from behind. Still needs time to mature and to gain confidence but everything is all there. DCC & BPIB
