Clitheroe & District Open Show 01/04/23 

Dogue de Bordeaux

Would like to say a huge thank you to the committee for my first judging appointment. I thoroughly enjoyed my day. I would also like to thank my steward Kirsty who was fantastic and ensured everything ran smoothly.


1st Hargreaves Roilondogue Heracles.

Lovely 9-month-old dog presented in great condition. Beautiful expressive face with correct ear set, a lovely broad skull & super dentition. Nice front assembly with a good fore chest & nice tight toes. Well sprung ribs leading on to a nicely angulated back end. Moved freely with good drive & really enjoyed his time in the ring. Definitely one to watch. Pleased to award him Best Puppy & over the moon to see him go onto to take puppy working group 2.

2nd Kenyon’s Regalrouge’s Opulence for Desquire

Lovely 9-month-old bitch presented in great condition. Fabulous forbidding expression with a broad skull, correct ear set with a good pronounced stop. Good fore chest, well sprung ribs leading on to a well angled back end. Moved well once she relaxed but lacked the confidence of my first. Another I will follow with interest

Post Graduate

1st Ansell’s Justlazare Darknight Rises

Stunning rising 3 black mask male presented in immaculate condition with a lovely broad skull, correct ear set, pronounced stop, good dentition & beautiful expression. Lovely front assembly with fabulous tight toes. Well sprung ribs. Well angled backend with fantastic muscle definition which was highlighted in his movement. I thoroughly enjoyed getting my hands on this dog & it was my pleasure to award him Best of Breed on the day. Over the moon to see him take working group 4

2nd Kenyon’s Biscay Winston for Desquire

A substantial 18-month-old male presented in great condition. Trapezoid head, correct ear set & good pronounced stop. Nice front assembly with good depth of chest leading on to well sprung ribs. Moderately angled backend. Moved well & freely but lacked the drive of 1st on the day. Please to award him Reserve Best of Breed


1st Hargreaves Aibrean Rocketman at Roiliondogue

A substantial 4-year-old male presented in great condition. Fabulous expression, correct ear set with a lovely pronounced stop & good dentition. Great front assembly, good depth of chest & nice tight toes. Well sprung ribs, good angulation sadly on the day his movement let him down.

2nd Ansell’s Justlazare In Your Honour

Beautiful Rising 8-year-old bitch. Lovely expressive head with correct ear set and good pronounced stop. Nice front assembly with lovely tight toes. Good spring of ribs leading onto a lovely backend. Good angulation. Loved her time in the ring & lovely to see one of our veterans doing so well.
