Breed: Swedish Vallhund

JD - 1) Amon’s Westorps Wild Thing to Pepperthyme (IMP SWE) 14 month old dog with good markings, lovely dark eye who was very alert. He has a lovely outline and when settled moves well. He is exactly right for his age and the best is definitely yet to come. He has a good coat and is very balanced. His head is still developing but he has good stop and the shape is correct. Reserve DCC

PGD –1) Linney’s Cecil Vom Bruggener Land mit Aescwine TAF (IMP DE). 2.5 years old who is still developing. He has a nice dark eye. He was very unsettled on the move (it was very noisy in the hall) and at the moment his chest is developing which may be why he is a bit wide in front. This could change once his chest has fully dropped.

OD –1) Perry & Etches CH Starvon Cryptic Spyda – This dog has a nice outline and good bone. He is the consummate showman and coped better with the noise than most. I would prefer a darker eye but the shape is good. Sometimes his topline rises on the move – this may be because he was moving so fast. He settled more in the challenge and won DCC.

2) Jones’s Tanellis Bloomin William – This dog is shorter on the leg. He has good markings, his ears are a bit wide set and I would prefer a darker eye. He has a great tail set. At the moment he is at an awkward stage where he is playing up his handler and not quite fully mature. The best is yet to come for him.
