2018 National Critiques

Judge’s Critique of the 2018 National Specialty
by Sean Martin, Glencross Cavaliers
I was very honored to be invited to judge at the CKCSCC National Specialty. It was my first time in Canada. This was a very well run show in a very nice Hotel. I would like to thank all the committee, my ring steward who did a great job also Mary Beth for taking the photos for me. After the show everyone went to a very good buffet and auction that was lots of fun. Everyone had a great time. I would like to say I was happy with my main winners. The B.I.S. dog could win in any country. I would love to have taken him home. I must comment on a few things that will have to be watched in the breed. There were a lot of dogs carrying very high tails which spoils the overall picture of the dog. I also came across a lot of incorrect bites. Otherwise I had a wonderful time and was very happy with my winner.
