Judge's Critiques

It was an honour to be invited again to judge at Crufts, this time with CCs. Nearly all the dogs were clean and only a few had been re-sculptured, I hope the exhibitors that use coat enhancements wash it off when they get home. Some of the girls were out of coat. When the judge is going over your dog, please do not put bait into their mouth just before it is having its bite checked, this is so dangerous. A lot of the handlers have the impression that you have to move very fast with the dogs, this does not help movement, just the contrary.
