Paignton & District Fanciers Association Ch Show

Shih Tzu – 6th August 2019.

Judge: Yvonne R Cannon (Cloughlea/Corrlough)

Thank you to the officers and committee for the invitation to judge at this show. Tuesday is not the best day for anyone to attend a show, but one so far away from most I do appreciate the exhibitors who took time out to enter and show their dogs under me. My observations are quite positive, most dogs were sturdy, of an excellent type and correct balance and sound. There were a few with narrow jaws and this needs to be watched carefully. The wind did decide to whip up a bit and this put off some youngsters particularly in the early bitch classes. Thank you to my stewards who kept the ring running smoothly.
