WINDSOR CHAMPIONSHIP DOG SHOW 2ND JULY 2022 LEONBERGER
My thanks to my lovely stewards on the day and to everyone for a quality entry of beautiful Leos. Mouths were pretty good all through. Movement has definitely improved on the whole in the last few years and presentation was amazing. It was refreshing to see feet have improved hugely and toplines continue to get better each time I judge. Type varies considerably, so it is difficult to be consistent class after class, but I was very pleased with the quality of the line up in both sexes.

1st: JUMP - Benellieson Time Lord
Sound baby boy who has everything in the right place, a recent growth spurt may have left him a little leggy today, but time is on his side. He has a dark mask, dark eye of good shape and thick ear leather. Good shoulder placement and topline. Enough bone, standing on good feet and moderately angled. He moved soundly from all angles and was a little proud of his tail at times, but he was a very happy baby enjoying himself, so I didn’t let it figure too highly.
2nd: THOMAS - Amathus Karmer NAF
Larger baby who has beautiful type, just a shade older than 1, yet far more mature in all areas and more of a finished look about him. Good mask, dark eye, good head proportions and expression. Thick ear leather, well furnished. Strong neck, good shoulder and topline. Nice width of front. Good feet and excellent bone. Moderate angulation and correct tail carriage. On first glance he was my class winner, sadly, he was favouring his right front which cost him dearly today, hopefully it is something which will rectify itself because he is otherwise beautiful

1st: COLE - Averkate Kassandra with Simden (Imp Rus)
A well grown lady with the most immaculate outline. Good head proportions, dark pigment, dark well shaped eye, thick ear well set on. Strong, arched neck into a beautiful shoulder assembly. Excellent feet and good bone, with nice width of front. her wither high topline gives her a commanding presence. Strong in back on the move, she is moderate in angle all through, and carries her tail perfectly. A very honest girl who could move and move and move some more. She stood herself square every time I glanced in her direction and when coming to a natural stop. Her own sense of showmanship is very hard to look past, every virtue I look for, she simply throws at the eye. To find this quality of structure with her lovely size is not that common. Her hard muscular condition feels amazing under hand, I was excited to see if she delivered on that promise when I sent her around, and boy; did she ever.! She is still not fully mature, so can only get even better with time. She is a natural showgirl and has an envious rapport with her handler. I shall watch her with great interest. BCC and BOB

Lovely topline and moderately angled all through. She moves very well in all directions and with correct tail carriage. She is another who is built to move all day long at any pace. She has a beautiful balance of outline and great rapport with her handler to get the very best from her. Stood squarely at all times, her virtues are very obvious.
When she was called back into the lineup, she simply shone. RBCC
