WELKS 2015

Judge – Mrs C Page

My thanks to all the exhibitors for such an excellent entry. On the whole I was very pleased with the dogs presented however I came away with two concerns. Whilst I do not wish to see any exaggeration in type I felt that some dogs, particularly the bitches, had heads that were too narrow and lacking in definition. My second concern lies with dentition; quite a few had front teeth in a correct scissor bite but had misaligned rear dentition.
