Driffield Championship Dog Show

Breed: Best in Show

I would like to thank Driffield committee for this lovely invitation and their hospitality. Also all the breed judges and Group Judges who sent through such quality dogs for this line-up. Not an easy choice to choose just two, but two it had to be and on the day these were my choices.

Best in Show the Dobermann Everley & Hughes, Ch. Manzart Wise Guy, all masculine and powerful yet with the style expected of this breed. Balanced throughout and very well muscled and fit. Good clean, masculine head with parallel planes, good depth to muzzle and well filled below the eyes, well set and shaped dark eyes. Good depth to chest and well balanced angulation, so on the move used his hocks for power and looked easy and effortless and covered the ground with ease.

Reserve Best in Show was the Elkhound, Bingham & Binghams, Kestos Rex of Rothenberg with a good wedge head, dark brown eye and well set ears. Short powerful body with good depth to chest and strong muscle on the loin and thighs with correct angulation giving the brisk effortless action required of this breed. Both of these dogs were a delight to 'go over' and a credit to their owners
