Judge: Mrs Jayne Alpe
Thank you to the LKA committee for this appointment, my first time giving CC’s, my thanks to my stewards who kept the judging flowing smoothly. I thoroughly enjoyed my appointment and overall was pleased with the quality of my entry. My final line ups were all good examples of the breed, both in type, conformation and also in movement, which is what I was looking for. In some classes I was delighted at the quality forward, in particular limit and open bitch, which meant some very good bitch’s were unplaced. Overall I found movement better than I have seen it in the past, although there is still a lack of drive from a number of dogs. Not sure that they could do a full days work as they were meant to, without tiring. Front movement still needs looking to as well. I was disappointed to find one or two with misplaced teeth and some with untypical expressions and light eyes. My principal winners were exactly what I was looking for in the breed, as I do feel that what we are lacking in the breed at the moment is real stallions of dogs and femininity in the bitch’s. I was delighted to learn after judging that my best puppies were litter brother and sister.

This dog has met all my expectations of when I first judged him as a puppy. He is correct type with excellent otter head, typical expression, big teeth and is easily spanned, very harsh jacket, and thick pelt, very well balanced dog that moves and drives round the ring as if he owns it. DCC & BOB
2nd - Irton Up Helly Aa (Mr D & Mrs A Fryer)
Another workmanlike dog that has always caught my eye, great expression, otterhead, big teeth and so very typical of the breed. Good shoulder and front and moved with drive. It was a hard decision between 1 and 2, but he just hadn’t got the same look at me attitude. RDCC
