Richmond Championship Show

8th September 2019

Labrador Retrievers

I would like to thank the officers and commitee for inviting me to judge at ther well run,very friendly show,on my first time awarding challenge certificates in this lovely breed.Thanks go to my two very capable stewards on there hard work,on an excellent job in keeping the ring running smoothly.No forgetting the lovely exhibitors who graced me with there presence.

Temperments overall where very good,unfortunatley some exhibits would benefit greatly from more exercise and conditioning,and less food,i found some dogs lacked the lovely round compact feet,and lovely otter tails.

I only found two incorrect mouths,all males where entire and movement overall was good.
