Firstly, I would like to thank the committee, members and exhibitors for the fantastic entry at this, my first club open show. It was a great privilege to judge here on the 50th anniversary of the Jedburgh show and to be able to get my hands on all these dogs. Thank you to my ring stewards, Jane Morton-Shaw and Janice Johnson for their hard work and efficiency. Thank you also, to Carole Mackenzie for going the extra mile with my lunch and plying me with all sorts of gluten free goodies!
All the dogs were entire and I found only two or three kinked tails, but mouths were a bit of a concern. There were a lot of level bites, and although “acceptable” we should all be mindful of this when breeding on. Strong scissor bites with typically large teeth is what we should be aiming for. The majority of dogs were in good fit order, but unfortunately a small number of exhibits were rather thin and lacking condition. The two shouldn’t be confused. There were also quite a number of very short, and in some cases, sprung ribs, and quite a few lacking angulation and length of upper arm in front. On a positive note, there were some very promising youngsters, especially in the young bitch classes, which can only bode well for the future.

Junior Handling Judge Mr Gordon Wildey


Class A  6 - 11 Years
:
1st:  Lucy Johnson.  This young handler was very smart in appearance and moved the dog on the floor and the table with great confidence but lacked the experience of BJH but this will come with age and as she gains experience. She did exceptionally well for one so young.

2nd: James Clark.  This  handler was very well dressed and handled their dog to the best of their ability , moved the dog well but struggled with the table.  This will improve with age and confidence.

Class B 12 - 16 Years:

1st: Caitlin Lister.  This young lady was very smartly turned out and had lots of confidence in handling her dog and has a great understanding of what is required of a Junior Handler.  A worthy winner on the day.  Best Junior Handler
