VD 2(0)

1. Fairclough’s Monalou Spirit of Discovery ShCM. Liked this dog’s proportions,

moved with purpose, rhythmic and easy, good bone, pleasing head and overall

balance, nice croup and good feet, BVD & BVIS.

2. Hughes’ Ch. Waldershelf Causing Chaos ShCM. Good bone and in fine voice

today, shown in great condition for age, just lacked the fluidity in movement of


MPD 2(1)

1. Pawlyszyn’s Matera’s Grandioso. 6 months, absolutely scrumptious but very

much still a baby, good bone and happy disposition, good angulation front and

rear with typical puppy movement, BPD & BPIS.

PD 1(0)

1. Jefferson’s Elbrusbern Amadeus. I loved this puppy dog, lovely immature

head and expression, nice feet, good croup and well muscled rear, struggling to

keep its top-line on the move but nonetheless I think this puppy will go far, it is


LD 4(1)

1. Copeland’s Kernow Dollar Promises at Maxjabar. Balanced and in proportion

with pleasing male head and nice expression, good croup and well muscled, on

good feet.

2. Hughes’ Waldershelf Cubby Ad Astra. Just a touch longer in the muzzle so

prefer the head of 1, expertly turned out, good feet, well muscled and moved


3. Scott/Corrigan’s Bern Haus On Oka Mikon to Scobern. Not as enthusiastic

on the move as those above, a little bit lighter in bone but again a typical


OD 7(3)

1. Dybdall/Lydon/Hughes’ Carraigbern Noble Heart of Rodiveco (IKC).

Absolutely loved this boy, balanced and in proportion with good head and eye,

good reach moving, drive from the back and good croup, immaculate turned

out and handled, BD & BIS.

2. Miles’ Jaybiem Modus Operandi. A touch smaller but also covered ground

well, moderate in angulation and very well presented with enough neck, just

didn’t have the showmanship of 1st, RBD.

3. Miles’ Jaybiem Only Making Plans. Just stood over a little too much ground

for me, lovely head and disposition, bit broader in back skull but again another

well turned out example of the breed.

VB 1(0)

1. Atherton’s Arvella Penny Lane. Good overall balance, good bone and tidy

feet just toeing in a bit coming to but beautiful feminine head and expression

and happy disposition, BVB.

MPB 2(1)

1. Jose’s Matera’s Feeling Grande. Still very much a baby, beautiful head,

adequate bone, balanced at the moment, good croup and typical puppy action

on the move.

PB 2(1)

1. Marsden/Robertson’s Kernow Bittersweet Tale for Trudaleaze. Pretty head

and mischievous expression, nice overall balance, good croup and in excellent

muscled condition for a puppy, glimpses of ‘coming together’ when on the

move, settled a bit better in profile, BPB & RBPIS.

YB 1(0)

1. Rossall’s Stormberne Go Classical. Another lovely typical head, just a touch

finer in bone than I would like but good overall balance with nice croup, nice

bend of stifle and moved well.

MB 1(0)

1. Marsden/Robertson’s Kernow Bittersweet Tale for Trudaleaze. Repeat but

went better on this go round.

GB 3(1)

1. Marsden/Robertson’s Kernow Glory Days for Trudaleaze. Liked her

proportions, well muscled and with good bone and croup, good drive on the


PGB 3(1)

1. Worrall’s Fortonpark Sweet Dreams at Oakbern. Feminine head and lovely

dark eye, good overall balance and covered ground well, RBB.

2. Marsden/Robertson’s Trudaleaze Ain’t I Fab You Lous. Really liked this bitch

but she was so naughty! again another pleasing expression and shown in

lovely muscled condition with good croup, if the handler can get her to behave,

these two could swap places on a different day.

LB 5(3)

1. Wilson’s Monalou Voulez Vous at Blumental. I loved this bitch, very

understated, nice balance, good sturdy bone, moved with a balanced stride

and well turned out, BB & RBIS.

2. Marsden/Robertson’s Tickbern Valencia avec Vellbern. Well muscled, again

with good bone, but again naughty! had excellent feet and moved well.

OB 2(0)

This class gave me the biggest challenge.

1. Jeffries’ Esslinbern Gadaboot Grace. Best of a compromise, good bone and

croup and moved well in profile.

2. Dybdall/Lydon’s Rodiveco Queen of Hearts. Was turned out immaculately,

was stylish on the move but just was just a touch too long in back for me and

just felt she didn’t have the typical movement of a Bernese, for me lacked

breed type.

Brace 1(0)

1. Miles’ Jaybiem Modus Operandi, Jaybiem Only Making Plans.
