Weimaraner - SP Y (3,2) 1 Burgess – Greyspirit Rock Star from Hantzburg JW – 18month male, masculine head, strong neck of moderate length. Good front angulation and straight forelegs. Well-proportioned body with deep chest and well sprung ribs. Moderately angulated rear with no exaggerations. Level topline which was held on the move. Showed an exuberant nature while moving in profile but remained parallel when seen up and back. This young man was a challenge for his handler today but just oozes quality that couldn’t be denied BOB. PG (1,0) 1 Thomas – Gunalt Sugar Plum at Rhydawel – 2yo bitch, lovely feminine head with expressive eyes, strong neck placed well on laid back shoulders, good angulation to forequarters with deep chest and well sprung ribs. More compact throughout but with enough length to body. Just tended to drop topline when stacked and in profile movement. Parallel front and back when seen from rear. O (3,2) 1 Burgess – Gunalt Rock Out with Hantzburg ShCM RL1 P-BEG EX – 6yo male, masculine head with an almost regal expression, strong moderately long neck set into nicely laid back shoulders, good angulated forequarters, deep chest and well sprung ribs with a good amount of length to his body. Nicely angulated rear quarters with nothing overdone. Held level topline on the move and parallel when seen from rear. Junior Handling - JH 6-11 (3,0) 1 Ellis Rees – An accomplished young handler who showed a great rapport with his dog. He performed his movements neatly and with ease with straight lines and tight corners while keeping the correct pace for his dog. He shadowed his movements correctly when stacked keeping on the correct side of his dog throughout and showed the teeth expertly and confidently. Well Done, a very polished exhibit. Best Overall Handler. 2 Llinos Aur Thomas – A lot of the comments above also apply to this young handler, she performed her movements neatly, keeping straight lines and tight corners. She was very gentle when stacking her dog and showed the teeth expertly. On the move, she remembered to remain on the opposite side of her dog, switching hands confidently. Just needs to take care when stacked, to move (shadow) while the judge walks around her dog. JH 12-16 (3,2) 1 Mikayla Jones – A well-presented confident handler who manoeuvred her young charge around the ring without fault. She had a lovely rapport with her dog and did not get flustered when it fidgeted or moved. Just calmly restacked and gave praise. On the move, she kept her lines straight and corners tight, changing hands confidently to avoid coming between myself and her dog. Just needs to take care when stacked on the table, to move (shadow) while the judge walks around her dog although I understand this was difficult today with an inexperienced puppy.
