Golden Retriever Critiques

Unfortunate to have such a small entry but not surprising given the breed championship show on the same day and typical entry size in this area. However, I was pleased to see my Best Puppy take Puppy Group 4 in a well represented group. Thank you to the committee for the invitation and for rescheduling my appointment due to the pandemic.

Puppy (2, 0a)


An 11 months old cream bitch, totally feminine head to toe. She has a lovely reach of neck, correct fore-chest and is well-angulated in both front and rear. Dipping her topline sometimes with her length but this may strengthen with maturity. Moved around the ring soundly with minimal effort. BOB, BPIB, PG4.


A mid-gold bitch of 9 months. Well-chiselled head with dark eyes and pigment. Good reach of neck into her level topline. Well-bodied for her age with a good spring of rib and short coupling. Stood square on neat feet and moved soundly, not quite the reach/drive of 1.

Junior (1, 0a)


16 month old mid-gold dog with a super soft expression and good substance all round. Correct reach of neck into well-laid back shoulders and his level topline. He stood straight all round on strong feet. When settled, he moved around well, but I’d prefer him to be slightly slimmer. RBOB.
