“Most aggressive episodes are triggered by the fear of being caught in a particular situation. Contrary to popular belief, it’s very rare indeed that an aggressive dog is a dominant dog. Dogs aren’t born aggressive, they become aggressive for a myriad of reasons. They have a large variety of body language that they use to convey a “stay away” message. People frequently misinterpret this body language and approach the dog inappropriately and are bitten. The sad thing is that most episodes of aggression aren’t investigated and treated properly. Consequently, the reason for the aggression is usually buried with the dog.”

Hello! I am Nicki your local therapist for Merseyside and owner of Beau, Harvey & Tilly (2 Labradors and a Springer spaniel)

Harvey came to me at 6 yrs old as his owner could no longer look after him. He took to following me everywhere and barked at everything and everyone. Beau stole things - shoes, remotes, mobile phones, you name it he stole it! As for Tilly, toilet training proved to be really tricky with the other two around. Worst of all Beau started showing aggression towards Harvey and I became worried that it might change his gentle nature.
I soon realized that I was out of my depth with 3 dogs, all of whom were much cleverer than me and had me brilliantly trained. Sadly they were not so well trained!
I searched for a non-physical, kind and effective method of training which would take place in the home, since both Beau and Harvey were good at training classes but definitely not good at home! This is the reason why I joined Bark Busters and it has been such an eye opener to actually see life through a dog’s eyes and start communicating with them in a way that they understand. These days I understand them and they understand and obey me!
My training has given me the knowledge to work with dogs exhibiting all sorts of behavioural problems, so however bad you think your dog’s habits may be please do give me a ring. I can stop nuisance barking, any form of aggression, jumping up and sort out general disobedience, so don't despair I can help!

BELFAST 16(Critique Below)

Judge's Critique Mr D Shields

Can I thank the officers & committee for their kind invitation to judge my first terrier group at championship show level. As always the hospitality in Northern Ireland was first class & this only added to a most enjoyable time.

G1 was Ir Ch Irisblu The Fiddler, Kerry Blue, stunning bitch who is of good size & is so beautifully balanced throughout. Best of heads with a good dark eye & the keenest of expressions. She has a good reach of neck set in well placed shoulders & stands on lovely legs & feet. Her body is short coupled with excellent depth, a firm topline & a well set tail. Strong rounded quarters complete the picture along with her free & powerful movement covering the ground with excellent reach & drive. Presented in superb order & is a credit to her owners.

G2 was Am Ch Irvonhill Leave It To Me, Irish Terrier, another top class exhibit who pushed the winner close. She has a very typical outlook with a feminine appearance but has the substance the Standard asks for. Lovely head & eye with well set ears. Her front assembly is well made & she has the required depth of body along with strong well muscled hindquarters. Presentation on the day was second to none with an excellent harsh jacket put down to perfection. Moved soundly on a good stride.

G3 was Molru Alright Dave, Stafford, not the flashiest of breeds in the group line up but this dog was on his toes & was really up for it on the day. A very sound & honest young man of good size with excellent strength & substance throughout. He has a pleasing head & expression, a good straight front with a lovely depth of chest & well sprung ribs. His quarters are powerfully made & he uses them to advantage on the move. Very sound both fore & aft & he well deserved his place on the day.

G4 was Blomendal Jack Daniels at Nileda, Sealyham, an active & balanced dog who presents a very typical appearance. He is of a good size with lovely bone & substance and typifies the breed trait of a lot of dog in a small compass. Best of heads with the darkest of eyes. Very clean over the neck & shoulders, pleasing body with good depth & a level topline that he keeps on the move. His hindquarters are well rounded with a good bend of stifle. Very positive on the move with good reach & drive.

DARLINGTON 16 (Critique Below)

TERRIER GROUP JUDGE' CRITIQUE DARLINGTON 16

My sincere thanks to the officers & committee of Darlington for the invitation to judge the terrier group at their show. I shortlisted the Bedlington, Dandie Dinmont, WFT, Irish, Lakeland, Manchester, Parson Russell, Stafford & WHWT from the BOBs present, both Bull Terriers unfortunately couldn’t stay & the Cairn was a ‘no show’.

G1 the WFT, Am Ch Hampton Court’s Machida, he stood out for his spark & presence in the ring. Good length of head, nice dark eye with a well filled muzzle. Correct in front construction, short backed with a level topline & good depth. Strongly made hindquarters which are well angulated with his tail bang on top. Coat in first class condition & moved fluently around the ring.

G2 the Irish Terrier, Am Ch Irvonhill Leave It To Me, appealed in head & expression with a correct ear set. Totally feminine throughout, pleasing in neck & shoulders with a straight front. Deep in body that is well balanced, well made hindquarters which she knows how to use, correct tailset & carriage. Good colour with a harsh well groomed coat, has that typical Irish attitude.

G3 the Lakeland, Saredon Enigma, very smart girl of lovely breed type. Balanced head that has strength without coarseness, good reach of neck with a correct front. Short well balanced body, good topline with well muscled hindquarters. Excellent true mover with a harsh well presented coat & well shown.

G4 the Dandie Dinmont, Ch Hawkesmill Jenny for Wilmit, have shortlisted before & this time was spot on. Has a very typical head with that look in the eyes which you can’t ignore. Very balanced in body having length, strength & low to ground. Ribs well sprung, correct topline that has no exaggeration to it. Well made hindquarters & she moved around the ring so soundly. In good coat & presentation.

BIS SKC AUGUST 16(Critique Below)
1. BURNS, Miss M & BURNS Mrs A Burneze Our Marnie

TERRIER GROUP JUDGE SKC & BEST IN SHOW (Critique)

I want to thank the SKC for inviting me to judge all the group & BIS at their very well run show. If we had a competition among the best run shows in the UK, it would be hard to find one to beat the SKC. Many years ago I was told by Catherine Sutton that the most important part of any show was to get it finished. Most exhibitors has a long way home & they want to get on their way asap. On Sunday the guys in Edinburgh got the show finished by 5.30pm with four groups to judge, which is a great achievement.
I never understood why we don’t place four dogs in the BIS final as we do in the groups? They do this in most European countries so why don’t we do it in the UK? If we did, it would bring more excitement to the competition & two more exhibitors would get a bigger smile. The only extra cost would be two more rosettes & I am sure the organisers could handle that.

BIS was the WHWT, Burneze Our Marnie & RBIS was the Bulldog, Ch Sealaville He’s Tyler.

TERRIER GROUP JUDGE'S CRITIQUE

I pulled out the Border Terrier, Dandie Dinmont, Irish Terrier, Parson Russel, Scottish Terrier, Skye & WHWT.

G1 this show belonged to the WHWT, Burneze Our Marnie, this beautiful bitch has got it all. She is a fabulous showdog, but she is more than that; she is also a fabulous WHWT who behaves like she owns the word. It was no doubt in her mind about her being the best & with arrogant self-confidence she sent this message to the judge. Not only is this dog exceptional, the owner is just as professional as her dog. Marnie looked great on Saturday, but she had been to ‘Vidal Sassoon’ overnight & the little star looked even more amazing on Sunday. Miss Burns had obviously felt that victory was within sight & spent hours making Marnie look perfect for Sunday. She stood & moved like a mannequin & she brought tears to my eyes. I was told this 13 month old star was the full sister of the Crufts BIS winner & that she already has clocked up five CCs. We do for sure have some exceptional breeders in the UK. BIS.

G2 the great Skye, Salena Silver Sapphire, I loved her balance & outline. She is very typical for her breed, has a nice head & moves very soundly keeping her topline at all time. An impressive bitch, which unfortunately was missing the enthusiasm of the winner.

G3 the Irish Terrier, Am Ch Irvonhill Leave It To Me, once again a quality bitch of excellent type. She is well angulated both ends & exceptionally well handled, but the topline let her down on occasions & that is why she was placed third.

G4 the Scottish Terrier, Ch Stuane King’s Sword, he is a strong low set dog with & excellent front which fills out very well. His elbows are well tucked in. He moved well & I liked him a lot, but I would have preferred his head to be stretched out a bit more. This would have made his scull a little leaner

Lovely head, eye and ears, good soundly made quarters fore and aft, well-made body, moved true with reaching forequarters and driving hindquarters

BLACKPOOL 16

TerrierWorld - Ch Salena The Special One

Judge's Critique Miss Jean Lanning

It was lovely to be back at Blackpool Championship Show again, & see for the first time their new extensive show site. As usual, hospitality second to none. For most of us a very memorable weekend, falling at the same time as the European Referendum for it seemed to be the main topic of conversation for most of the show. Really rare, to be at a dog show, & find people are able to talk about something else, other than the politics of the dog game.

I thoroughly enjoyed judging this quality group. However, I was surprised to find a couple appeared to be shy, for surely one does not expect this of a BOB terrier? Several classy youngsters, with a few more months on them, will be making for hot competition.

My first cut were dogs I wished to see move for the second time. In the end it was four great dogs that came into the last four.

G1 the Skye, Ch Salena The Special One, winning the breed record today I hear. Well known to so many of us who recall his great Crufts group win not so long back. Of course he shouts breed type. A real aristocrat as he moved round the ring with such style & command. His collected ideal movement is there for all to see. One of the great dogs of our time.

G2 the Bedlington, Ch Sharnor High I’m Viktor at Kierlander, a breed which has a characteristic movement & texture coat of its own, which makes it rather special. This one comes pretty close to the ideal Standard & I understand has already notched up a mass of ‘ big green cards.

G3 the Irish Terrier, Am Ch Irvonhill Leave It To Me, I had the advantage of training in an Irish Terrier kennel when I first left school & I like to think I am able to appreciate a good ‘Mick’. This one is certainly out the top drawer. Important to have the racy look & not so short coupled as some terrier breeds. Excellent head & eye & harsh crispy jacket trimmed ‘finger & thumb’ to perfection as one always expects from this kennel.

G4 the Scottish Terrier, Ch Stuane Kings Sword, another presented in A1 order. Excellent coat, so well balanced & a treat on the move. These dogs were a joy to judge. Interesting to note all four breeds have a long history in that they are indigenous breeds of these Islands & over many decades, have changed very little & kept their type true.

In the group I made a cut of 8 which included the beautifully headed Dandie with her super crisp jacket; the Skye who had a correct straight well prepared coat & a lovely headpiece; the Westie who was on his toes with a super harsh jacket; & the Manchester from NSC who was in lovely hard condition with a good head & moving soundly.

G1 was the Norfolk, Ch Kinsridge Top Tip, who was in cracking form. She is a non stop showgirl which is not always easy in this breed. So typy & feminine. She has a lovely short body & super head & when she moves she is proof that you can combine those proportions with lovely fluid ground covering movement. My top tip is watch her profile movement where she absolutely defies the opposition.

G2 was the Lakeland, Mieths Toby, caught my eye as soon as he entered the ring & did not disappoint on the table. Lovely headed boy, super body & condition, beautifully prepared & handled to get the best out of him. He moved well in all directions, tail on top & was on his toes.

G3 the Norwich Terrier, Ch Ragus Hand In Glove, no stranger to top honours & another show boy who puts all in, lovely head, great jacket & really drives from the rear. Super outline standing & moving.

G4 the Bedlington, Ch Honeymist Posh Dreamz, possesses a lovely outline both standing & moving & she was presented in tip top condition. Her gait was so typical of the breed with the correct front for a Bedlington. Feminine head without losing any strength. Lovely.

THREE COUNTIES 16(Critique Below)

SCWT, Ch Silkcroft Colour Of Magic Group Winner Three Counties 16

I would like to thank the society for inviting me to judge the terrier group & to the other judges who sent good quality dogs through to the group.

I selected 8, the SCWT, Irish, Bedlington, Stafford, Norwich, Australian, Manchester & Westie. All good representatives of their breeds.

Correct body with short coupling, well angulated quarters with good short strong hocks which she uses, super coat & colour, used the ring to her advantage, impressive side gait, handled & put down professionally, pleased to have awarded her her first group.

BATH 16

Judge: Mr R Allen Judge's Critique

Sincere thanks to the officers & committee of Bath Canine Society for inviting me to judge my first terrier group.

As we have all come to expect, from this well run show, the grounds were in immaculate condition. The rings are level & the grass is of bowling green standard.

The quality of the group was very high & some top quality exhibits didn't make the shortcut. I short listed 8 for further consideration & the four that just missed out on a place were the Cairn, Irish, Skye & WHWT.

For the winner of the group I chose the Scottish Terrier, Am Ch Mcvans Flash Gordon, an outstanding dog who came into the ring full of his own self importance. He was a joy to go over on the table with a clean skull, strong muzzle & well set ears that he used all the time. He is very clean through the neck & shoulders & stands on lovely legs & feet. He was in excellent body, that is low slung & his topline & tailset were perfection. He has well muscled hindquarters that really powered him around the ring. His handler had him in excellent trim & condition & he put on a great performance. To top it all off was his movement, both on the out & back & in profile. He was footfall perfect & a very worthy winner of this strong group.

G2 was the Bedlington, Ch Sharnor High I'm Viktor at Kierlander, a well known dog that was in immaculate condition. He carriers a lovely head & expression, correct front, excellent legs & feet & his movement was spot on. He was handled to advantage & put on a top performance.

G3 was the Norwich, Ch Ragus Hand In Glove, all male who has an excellent head & expression. He stands on the best of legs & feet & his movement was text book. He was in excellent show trim & very cleverly handled. He put up a very good performance & well deserved his place.

G4 was the Stafford, Bultery Magic Potion at Pantycelyn, a top class bitch that has a lovely head & ears. Not overdone at all. Excellent front & just right for body. Well muscled & her movement was excellent. Handled to get the best out of her & I feel that she will do a lot more winning.

Judge's Critique Mr C Powell (Bowtman)

CH Janeyjimjams Jenson JW Sh.CM. D, S.C.W.T

The Terrier Group was a strong one and full of quality exhibits, it was a close decision between the placing and one that could be reversed on another occasion.

1st FALLON, CH Janeyjimjams Jenson JW Sh.CM. D, S.C.W.T. One I have watched with interest from his very first show, and glad I finally had a chance to judge him in the group and was not disappointed.
A true ambassador of the breed and at ease in the big ring, a dog that has just got better with age, nothing over exaggerated about him, well balanced and full of breed type, always in first class condition and expertly handled, pleased to award him Group 1.
2nd KIERNAN, CH Sharnor High I'm Viktor At Kierlander, D, Bedlington Terrier. An impressive looking dog, one you keep going back to, not an hair out of place and put down in immaculate condition, a credit to the owners, plenty of breed type and good angulations wherever viewed from, good neck and shoulders, ample bone and well padded feet, chest deep and muscular thighs, correct tail set, and in good coat, moved effortlessly around the ring covering the ground with ease, pushed real hard for top spot.
3rd BARKER, & AVERIS, US Irvonhill Leave It To Me. B, Irish Terrier. One I gave B.O.B. to at National Terrier, always in first class condition and expertly handled, keen, alert, and very typical of the breed, pleasing head shape, correct ears and dark eyes, well balanced, nice harsh coat, moved with ease keeping a good topline and tail set.

4th BURNS, Burneze Our Marnie, B, W.H.W.T. A ten and half month old puppy with exceptional potential, has a very bright future ahead of her, every thing you would want in a puppy and more, full of breed type, trimmed to perfection, and put down in immaculate condition, moved like a dream, a quality bitch hence her placing.

TERRIER GROUP JUDGE'S CRITIQUE WELKS 16

Many thanks to the hardworking ladies running this friendly show, such a shame that the wind was so bitterly cold every time the sun went into hiding. I shortlisted six: WHWT still only a puppy, WFT, Manchester, Irish, Norfolk & Bedlington. Unusually three of the top spots went to bitches.

G1 was Ch Honeymist Posh Dreamz, Bedlington, typical for outline & a real terrier expression, looks great standing, very smart bitch, beautifully presented, won her place on her type & steady balanced calm performance on the move.

G2 was Ch Kinsridge Top Tip, Norfolk, one I have judged before & given top awards to, pretty girl with good head, short back topped with a hard coat, nice size & balanced, tried hard for the top spot but would not settle, I know she can move true with good extension, just didn’t do it today.

G3 was Ch/Am Ch Ironhill Leave It To Me, Irish, attractive, stylish & typical, excellent coat & condition, well muscled with true Irish appeal. Unlike the Norfolk a bit lack lustre in performance I felt & on the last move lost her topline at times, for all that a good one of the breed & does appeal, can’t be overlooked.

G4 was Ch Digelsa Declaration, Manchester, handsome masculine boy, full of quality, appealed for his lovely type & overall balance, probably moved best of all on the day & pushed the Irish hard. This is a breed which does not instantly catch the eye like some but this really good one demands your attention & got it from me.

SUBSERVIANCE ON A GRAND SCALE

Why is it that almost every person who judges at Crufts starts their preamble with; "It was an honour and a privilege to be invited to judge at Crufts." They have all got it massively wrong. The honour and privilege is down to the Kennel Club. What support financially or otherwise does the KC give to anyone who is making their way up the judging ladder? Answer, NONE. Judges learn their job over many years traveling throughout the UK costing them many thousands of pounds to gain the necessary experience and the required class numbers, not forgetting Seminars too. it is utter bullshit doffing the cap to the Kennel Club. The KC wouldn't have a show without the judges. They [KC] earn hundreds of thousands from it. What does a judge get for their expertise? A luncheon voucher and a tin badge with KC on it and expenses if you are lucky! All this goes on whilst the KC officials and a select few are put up in the best hotels at the NEC; it's called "The Gravy Train"
My former profession was as a 'Built Up Roofing Specialist'. When I was employed to do a job and exercise my considerable skills, I certainly didn't tell the people who employed me that it was an honour and a privilege to to have worked for them; I expected to be well paid and get the thanks from them. So you can see just how ridiculous it is to be so subservient to the Kennel club. What will we see next, all judges obliged to bring flowers for Kisko and a box of cigars for the Chairman? Let's get real, the Kennel Club Hierarchy and all of the hangers on should be on their knees in gratitude, when you accept an appointment to judge at Crufts! THEY WOULD NOT HAVE A SHOW WITHOUT THE JUDGES!
Read the Preamble from The Best In Show Judge. If this doesn't stimulate 'Mass Multiple Mental Orgasm' there is something wrong with you...You'll never be accepted as a 'Kennel Club Brown Noser' if you don't go weak at the knees. Drag yourself around the bathroom and try again...Or if all else fails, try and ingratiate yourself with a 'Professional Dog Walker' - one who controls what happens with Judging policy at the Kennel Club, and then try, try, and try again. It may require fissure attention remedy and tonsil removal but you will get there in the end. Some say it's all worthwhile and may even look forward to it. It's enough to make your eyes water...

BEST IN SHOW JUDGE'S CRITIQUE CRUFTS 16

Well, where to start. To say this was my appointment of a lifetime is a complete understatement. It was incredible. So many people to thank, firstly Gerald King & his Crufts committee for the invitation, Tom Mather my escort, ‘the Three Musketeers’, Caroline Kisco, Rosemary Smart & ‘Wonder Woman’ Vanessa McAlpine, my two valets – Simon Luxmoore & Maurice Cooke & members of both the General & Crufts committees who were all so kind to me over the four days.

Now to the dogs, from day 1 was the utility group winner Ch Longdales Jen You Win, German Spitz Klein, also from day 1 the Pekingese, Ch Yakee Ooh Ah Cantona; from day 2, the Gordon Setter, Sh Ch Lourdace Fulcrum; from day 3, the Bouvier, Ch Lispark Lord Of The Rings & the Border Collie, Int Ch Simaro Cold As Ice; & from the last day the WHWT, Ch Burneze Geordie Girl & the Whippet, Ch Nothing Compares To You at Crosscrop.

My choice for BIS at the 125th Crufts anniversary show was the Westie, Ch Burneze Geordie Girl, a total star. Super head & ears, with lovely dark eyes, strong jaw & typical expression, good neck, shoulder & immaculate front & feet, well ribbed with just the right amount of weight, strong in rear & topline with lovely set on. Hard coat, expertly trimmed & presented, super pigmentation, she even had black nails! She has all the style in the world & a look of feminine greatness about her, she defied me to find something to beat her & I couldn’t! At only 20 months, she must have a serious future ahead of her. She just stole my heart.

For RBIS I chose the fawn Whippet bitch, Ch Nothing Compares To You at Crosscrop, so smart & curvaceous, very pleasing in head & neck, straight front & good feet, lovely to go over on the table she has beautiful balance all through, fine coated & in gleaming condition when moved at a sensible pace showed both soundness with reach & drive, very appealing showgirl.

CRUFTS TERRIER GROUP 2016 (Critique Below)

TERRIER GROUP JUDGE'S CRITIQUE CRUFTS 16

A wonderful honour to be invited to judge the terrier group at the world’s most famous & prestigious dog show, & even more so for a non-British judge! To say that I had been looking forward to my appointment is an understatement & the experience proved to be as exciting as I had hoped. My sincere thanks to the committee for the invitation & for outstanding hospitality & first class organisation.

I was fortunate to have a strong group made up by excellent representatives of their breeds sent forward by the breed judges to whom go my thanks. After initial examination I shortlisted eight breeds for further consideration, all splendid examples of their breeds, & they were the WHWT, Border Terrier, Kerry Blue, Norfolk, Norwich, WFT, Sealyham & the Irish Terrier.

After moving the dogs once again individually, one of these top class terriers shone brighter & emerged the ultimate winner.

It gave me great pleasure to award the breathtakingly beautiful WHWT, Ch Burneze Geordie Girl, the top spot. I found her quite wonderful in every way & she is a model of the breed combing all the breed requirements coupled with outstanding movement, temperament & first class presentation. Her overall quality & extra dimension of style made her simply irresistible & I feel privileged to have judged what is possibly the best WHWT that I have ever seen. She put on a flawless performance in true Diehard spirit taking it all in her stride & I was overjoyed to see this wonderful little bitch win BIS later in the evening. Congratulations on a superb win!

In the second spot I chose another top class dog, the Border Terrier, Ch Brackenfell Bok To Bach, looking his very best presented in first class order & moving & showing faultlessly. Masculine otter head, good eye & expression, sound front & typical racy hindquarters, ideal overall proportions, excellent tail, good thick pelt & the very best of coats. I liked him very much indeed & felt he was a worthy runner-up in this group.

The Kerry Blue, Ir Ch Irishblu Jack Of Diamonds, was my choice for the third placing. He caught my eye immediately with his true terrier spirit & vivacity as he entered the main ring. He handles beautifully & has a long punishing head with good eyes & ears, sound forehand, good spring of rib, excellent quarters & set-on of tail. His navy blue coat is of excellent texture, not seen as frequently as one would like. His powerful quarters & great terrier appeal demonstrated on the move gave him a credible third placing here, a very good dog indeed.

The delightful little Norfolk, Ch Kinsridge Top Tip, is an old favourite of mine & she was looking as good as ever here today. She is of lovely type & correct for size & overall make & shape, very good head, ears & expression, sound front & rear, excellent jacket in pristine condition & what a mover she is! She never stopped showing demonstrating terrier character at its best. Tail carriage just let her down a little, but a lovely bitch indeed overall.

TERRIER GROUP JUDGE MANCHESTER 16

A sincere thank you and appreciation to the Committee and Officers of Manchester Dog Show Society for inviting me to judge the Terrier Group at their well run, efficient and friendly Show. The hospitality and atmosphere was first class and only matched by the quality of the Best of Breeds sent forward by the respective Breed Judges, the final short list exuded quality and breed type and it was a real pleasure going each one, I only wish I had more cards to distribute.

My final cut comprised nine breeds, as well as the four principal winners, I also shortlisted for further consideration, the Bedlington, Kierrnan’s Ch Sharnor High I’m Vicktor at Kierlander, the Dandie Dinmont, Milton’s Ch Hawkesmill Jenny for Wilmit JW, the Wire Fox Terrier, De Munter , Utterwuk and Malzoni’s Ch Kingarthur Von Foliny Home, the Kerry Blue, Ramsay’s Torums Cairo Fred and the West Higland White, Burn’s Ch Burneze Geordie Girl.

I was pleased to award G1 to Hall & Ellis’ Border Terrier, Ch Brockenhall Bok to Bach. This dog looked a real smart picture standing and on the move and when I went over him on the table my initial views were confirmed with more to spare. This dog excels in head, being broad in skull and in correct proportions, super mouth, neat well set ears giving overall keen and workmanlike appearance, nice front and racy hindquarters not only looked the part but produced true and effortless movement, in good coat and super condition, a real credit to all concerned.

G2 was awarded to the Soft Coated Wheaten, Fallon’s Ch Jeneyjimjams Jenson. Strong powerful head with correct bite, nice length of neck flowing elegantly into well made forequarters, compact body with well sprung ribs, abundant coat of loosely flowing waves, correct size, moved out with purpose.

G3 went to the Skye Terrier, Breeze’s Ch Salena The Special One. Very attractive appearance and excels in breed type, head well developed and pleased to see abundance of ear fringes, which gave him the typical expression, long neck which carried head, well both standing and on the move, good topline with well carried tail, coat of good length, moved with fluidity and ease.

G4 placing was the Irish Terrier, Barker & Averis’ US Irvonhill Leave it To Me. Still a bit of finishing required to complete the picture, but this young bitch has all the attributes and essentials in place, real racy outline, liked neck and body proportions, deep red harsh coat, just tended to loose a bit of sparkle in the final challenge.

TERRIER GROUP JUDGE BOSTON 16

A full complement of 18 terriers entered the ring for my appraisal & after going over & moving all I chose 10 for further consideration. The quality being very good & again I was spoilt for choice, these included but not quite making the final six, the Dandie Dinmont, with her lovely distinctive head & body type; the keen compact Norwich Terrier with the bone & substance; the lovely workmanlike Parson Russell girl of balance & an active outline; the WHWT, a strongly built girl, small & active presenting that desired compact shape & lovely expression in head.

In the final 6 were the special young 11 months Australian Terrier lad of quality in type, head, earset & expression, already building well in body & great on side action, I look forward to watching his development; also in but not quite making the final 4 was the Border Terrier bitch of good working ability, easily spannable with the build to do the work & agile enough to follow the horse, she’s typical in head, she has the earset, bite & jaw, she has the neck & body, is racy in the hindquarters & accurate in movement.

From these 6 I found my group winner today in the compact, balanced & short coupled SCWT, Ch Janeyjimjams Jenson, shown in a coat of the right colour & with soft waves, he is powerful with the length of skull & muzzle, strong jaw & big teeth, he has a good earset & flows through the strong neck into well laid shoulders, he has the front, compact body & strong muscled rearquarters, he moves on good feet & carries the tail, he has the reach in front & drive behind to take this strong group.

G2 was the exciting Irish Terrier, Am Ch Irvonhill Leave It To Me, this lady has all the attributes, she’s active with a lively & wiry appearance, I liked the head, good length of skull, strong jaw & muzzle power, well shaped ears & a dark eye, she has the neck, front & topline, she has the balance at the rear with good chest depth & well sprung ribs, she is building well into her racy outline & was moving with the true front & rear action, she has the harsh, wiry coat desired & muscletone building up, she was handled with skill providing the performance to take this place.

G3 went to the smart, alert SFT, Zetamaz Gerard Depardieu, a youngster on the tiptoe of expectation, developing well with his short backed appearance, head of good type, length & shape, dark eye & good ear shape, has good through chest & body with a strong topline & a muscled loin, good feet & strongly muscled rearquarters, he was going well on the move & pushing for a higher placement.

G4 was the impressive, strong & well set Scottish Terrier, Ch Stuane Kings Sword, he has the build in front with the bone & is short legged, he has the length & strength in his typical headpiece, good skull, muzzle, jaw & black nose with a dark eye & alert earset, he’s muscular throughout & has a level topline, well set tail & he can move with the smooth free & easy gaited action, well presented in lovely condition with his harsh dense & wiry coat, he was in good coordination with handler to take this spot in the group.

TERRIER GROUP JUDGE'S CRITIQUE LKA 15

As usual, the ladies of this hugely respected Association put on yet another wonderful show & I convey my sincere thanks for the welcome & kindness shown to me during my sojourn to the NEC. The organisation was superb, everything seemed to run like clockwork & I had a thoroughly enjoyable weekend.

This was a very strong group & to make it into my final 8 was an achievement in itself. Included in that list were the Irish Terrier, Ch Lakeridge Cahal; Kerry Blue, Ch Kebulak Lady Killer; the lovely young Lakeland, Nujax Dizzie Rascal; & the ever attentive Norwich, Ch Ragus Hand In Glove, each of which added to the quality of the line-up.

G4 was the SFT, Ch Glendrattera Suzi Kew, I have admired this charmer before & on the table she looks so stunning. Wonderful outline, short backed, so clean in shoulders with a gun barrel front in action, tailset bang on & she was in superb coat. I love her head & expression & have watched her play up on the move, but today she really looked the part & deservedly won this placing.

G3 was the Scottish Terrier, the young Ch Stuane King’s Sword, great to handle on the table, stunning head, foreface, the darkest of eyes, well set neck, big ribcage with heavily boned forelegs so short coupled & with well developed upper thighs. Immaculate in jacket presentation & he moved out soundly. One has to be hypercritical at this level & I felt he could just have had a shade more tip toe of expectation fire about him on the move.

G2 had to be the Border Terrier, Ch Brackenfall Bok To Bach, first time I have had the pleasure of judging him & it is easy to see why he has won so very much. A real class item, great headpiece, so well constructed, spotless in presentation & very sound out & back then even striding in profile. When push came to shove I felt that, like the Scottie, he could just have had that shade more animation, but his classiness is there for all to see.

G1 was a totally new face to me in the quite beautiful Bedlington, Ch Sharnor High I’m Viktor at Kierlander, I was smitten by him the moment he entered the ring. Incredible presentation, like a photograph that has been air brushed! His composure as he circled the ring with that so light springy action, holding his outline so well, the whole shape seeming to be comprised of complimentary curves. The result is refinement with power & his movement was almost magnetic – light, rhythmic & so breed typical. His head is a joy, a real pear shape, beautiful eyes & ears such a long neck which he uses so well to convey an almost aristocratic demeanour. Today was his day & I was delighted to have him as my winner.

Terrier World - Lakeridge Cahal

ANDREW BRACE JUDGE MIDLAND COUNTIES 15

On the final day I began with the terrier group & had a shortlist of the Bedlington, Miniature Bull Terrier, Dandie Dinmont, Irish, Norfolk, Norwich, SCWT, Stafford & WHWT.

From the start the Irish male, Ch Lakeridge Cahal, was the one to beat & how he has matured & settled since I last had him in a group. He has that unique Irish expression, a clean & balanced outline, moved steadily & his correctly textured coat was presented to perfection. On his toes all the time, he could not be beaten on the day.

G2 was the WHWT bitch, Ch Burneze Geordie Girl, I loved her when I had her in the breed as a raw, if rather obstinate, puppy & she has really blossomed. On the table she was a joy to go over, has a classic head, firm, well muscled body & correct coat that was very well presented. On the final go-around she wasn’t going with quite the enthusiasm of the Irish but she is one of the greats of the future.

G3 was the Norwich, Ch Ragus Hand In Glove, another who really impressed on the table. Excellent head & expression, wonderful bone & ribs & very much all of a piece. In great coat he too was beautifully prepared. While he moved soundly, on the final go-around he was fighting the lead a little which eased the challenge, but he still beat some excellent dogs.

G4 was the Min Bull Terrier, Bullrichs Catch Me If You Can, what a surprise this br/w bitch was & I have seldom such an impressive head in a Miniature as she has a superb profile, great fill, wicked eye & perfect mouth. On the go-around she covered the ground with ease but just came at me a little less accurately than the three above.

TERRIER GROUP JUDGE DARLINGTON 15

Respect is the key word here at Darlington. David, Stuart & the team, give it & hopefully are on the receiving end, they deserve it. This innovative committee, improve the show each year, congratulations.

G1 was Lakeridge Cahal, Irish Terrier dog, delighted to see this favourite of mine in this big ring today. He wowed me when I gave him the group last year &, you know what, I thought just as highly of him today. A real terrier in attitude & used this impressive arena to display his attributes, with perfect foot placement & keen easy gait. In perfect coat & condition with a handler who quietly works with him to take centre stage.

G2 was Burneze Geordie Girl, WHWT bitch, this junior is so correct to go over with body now & the polished white harsh top coat sets off the picture. Out & back she is true with ease of action. In the final round her posture, & confident head carriage with smooth ground cover really was eyecatching & confirmed her place. She is a bit special!

G3 was Ch Kebulak Lady Killer, Kerry Blue Terrier dog, this super chap cannot be over looked. In tip top order. Fit, muscular with totally typical compact, strong outline, with good head carriage & reach of neck fitting smoothly through clean forehand. Silky coat is expertly prepared. He goes with smooth reach & drive with his accomplished handler.

G4 was Ragus Hand In Glove, Norwich Terrier dog, the cheek of this young man draws you in. Has that bustling alert temperament that presents his type. Small with excellent construction & body, yet still has legs. Super head with underjaw housing big white teeth. Has neck & firm back. Good width of bum & good set on. Hard wiry coat.

Others in my shortlist were: Hawkesmill Jenny for Wilmit, Dandie Dinmont, this young lady did her job well, very typical in headpiece with friendly outlook from big well set eye. Has body & balance, sound moving, holding herself well; Zetamaz Cool Dude, SFT, balanced, clean outline. Long head with smooth lines to punishing jaw. Small dark eye with varmity expression. Up for it at all times; Ch Janeyjimjams Jenson, SCWT, masculine but displays balance & typical outline. Very satisfying to go over. Fit, sound topped by gleaming silky soft coat. Stands on thick pads, active fluid going; & Saredon Judgement Day, Welsh Terrier, not finished but has style & quality that says he cannot be over looked. Just loved his shape. Dry head clean lines. Great hard coat. Cracking temperament. A solid chap who works well.

Ch Millsblu Living The Dream At Perrisblu Kerry Blue Terrier

Group Judge's Critique

I would firstly like to thank the officers & the committee for kindly inviting me to judge my first terrier group at championship show level.

The Airedale & the Cairn were missing from the group.

My shortlist consisted of the Border, SFT, Irish, Sealyham, Skye, SCWT, WHWT and from AVNSC the Kerry Blue. All my shortlisted exhibits were quality specimens of their own breed.

I was pleased to award G1 to the Kerry Blue, Ch Millsblu Living The Dream at Perrisblu, a balanced bitch who could certainly do the job she was bred for. Compact & graceful & never lost that alertness what the breed asks for. A super head with a keen dark eye giving correct expression. Oozes quality & one who moves truly.

I awarded G2 to the Border Terrier, Ch Brakenfell Bok To Bach, a lot has been written about this male. One I was pleased to have the pleasure of judging & did not disappoint in any way whatsoever. A super head otter in shape as the Standard asks for. Workmanlike. Pelt was thick & easily spanned. Shown in hard condition & one who is very sound on the move.

The Irish Terrier was my G3 placing, CH Lakeridge Cahal, correct size. Keen & alert at all times. Shown in hard condition, & presented to perfection as is usual from this master of presentation.

My final group placing I was pleased to award to the WHWT, Burneze Geordie Girl, who I am lead to believe gained her crown on the day. A young bitch in who I am confident has a great show career ahead. Young & maturing along the right lines for her age.

A lot of close decisions & some nice dogs didn’t make my shortlist. A strong terrier group which I was privileged to judge.

THOMAS Mr G Ch Tycadno I Spy Group Winner City Of Birmingham 2015

behindThe lovely main ring at the City of Birmingham is terrific. Not too big or small, light & airy & beautifully carpeted. So nice to judge the terrier group in it.

I shortlisted 7 including the typy SCWT, Garsayno Gold Gemma; the smart Norfolk, Ch Blakens Pay Back, & the Manchester, Digelsa Declaration, who was playing the fool!

G4 was the WHWT bitch, Ch Comdale Miss January at Hillsted, I liked her attitude & proportions & ever willingness to move for me.

G3 Inzievar Summer Gold at Mosterlada, lovely size & shape I thought. Good on the move & the most melting expression.

G2 WFT, Malta Ch Mastini Di Rihana Goes To Casino, beautifully turned out & in wonderful body & muscular condition. Absolutely spot on front & front movement & pretty handy behind too! Kept a perfect topline on the move.

G1 to the Cairn male, Ch Tycadno I Spy, he took my eye immediately on his walk across the ring. Excellent proportions & gorgeous head & eyes. Immaculate presentation & so well conditioned for body & muscletone.

Judge: Mr F Kane (Critique Below)

Ch Sharnor High I'm Viktor At Kierlander Bedlington Terrier

Although a small group at this show, there was plenty of quality & I shortlisted eight: the Stafford, a feminine bitch & in hard condition & moving well, I would have liked just a little more chest; the Skye, has a lovely outline standing, on the day his topline was just losing a little firmness on the move; the Irish, in peak condition & coat but he was not really at his most spirited today, all quality dogs & the young Norfolk dog who chased the top four for a placing. He is compact & low to ground & can move with freedom & should have a very good future

In fourth spot was the Dandie Dinmont, Inzievar Gold Spark, a young mustard bitch of lovely quality & holding her shape well on the move.

For third place I chose the WHWT, Ch Brychdyn Diamond Geezer, lovely type with a superb coat & with excellent topline.

Runner up was the Scottish Terrier, Ch Stuane King’s Sword, who had won BOB under me the previous week so I think highly of him, low slung, a lovely size & full of breed type. Today he was on top form in the group ring & showed with spirit.

My winner on the day was the Bedlington, Ch Sharnor High I’m Viktor at Kierlander, who is very correct in breed type, shape & movement & did not put a foot wrong, going with the correct movement for the breed, maintaining his shape. In lovely coat for colour & texture.

My thanks to the SKC for their hospitality.

WELSH KENNEL CLUB 15
The Group Judge Is Professional Handler Geoff Corish.

Professional Handlers Incomes Are Enhanced When They Win.
The Greater The Win, The Bigger Their Pay Packets. The American Kennel Club Does Not Allow Professional Handlers To Judge Whilst Still A Handler. In The USA Anyone Living In The Same House As A Handler Cannot Judge Either. This Of Course Is Because It Is A Glaring Conflict Of Interests And Ethically Wrong. How Can The UK Kennel Club Get It So Wrong Allowing This Practice To Continue?

I shortlisted the Airedale, Bedlington, Border, WFT, Irish, Lakeland, Norfolk, Scottish, Skye & WHWT. A final move & several just didn’t give of their best.

G1 was Sonorra Christmas Cracker from Russtam, very smart Airedale, excels in head & expression, well placed ears, good reach of neck, short coupled & tail bang on top, moved so well & never gave up, presented in excellent coat.
G2 was Ch Cobstoneway Moon River at Clipstone, really nice Border bitch, true otter head which was well balanced, straight front, super shape, in excellent coat & pelt, full of quality.
G3 was Ch Lakeridge Cahal, well known Irish & as always in good coat & condition, good neck & shoulders, straight front standing but just didn’t move quite so well in front on the final run.
G4 was Ch Sharnor High I’m Viktor at Kierlander, smart Bedlington who I have often admired from the ringside & so good to go over, presented to the minute.

Judge's Critique Mr R Thomas

Having spent three most enjoyable days at this show, culminating in judging the terrier group, I would like to thank the committee & officers for my invitation & the hospitality afforded me during my stay.

Perhaps not the strongest of groups, but along with my four group placings, I shortlisted the Border, Cairn, Dandie Dinmont, Kerry Blue & the Stafford.

G1 was Bocans Bolt to Bellevue, WHWT, thoroughly deserved this group on this performance & showed himself off to full effect. The overall picture is of a short, compact, well made male with an excellent topline & tailset complemented by a head of correct proportions, definite stop & strong in jaw & loin, well ribbed up & carrying a hard jacket. Moved freely both ways with plenty of drive from his strong hindquarters.

G2 was Ch Sharnor High I’m Viktor at Kierlander, Bedlington, have judged this lad before & he impresses with his head shape, so well carried, an excellent topline which does not flatten on the move & along with his deep chest & correct front, he sparkles when moving out with that typical breed gait & excellent profile.

G3 was Ch Silkcroft Colour Of Magic, SCWT, nice for size & shape, well made & carrying a coat of good texture & quantity. Balanced all through, compact & scored in head proportions with a strong muscular neck & well sprung ribs, moved out freely with good side gait.

G4 was Ch Blakens Pay Back,
Norfolk, certainly asked to be looked at, he scores in head & is strong in muzzle with good dentition, just enough neck & is compact with a level topline, strong short loin & good set on, moved out well with reach & drive.

Ch Millsblu Living The Dream At Perrisblu Kerry Blue Terrier

TERRIER GROUP JUDGE'S CRITIQUE PAIGNTON 15

It was a pleasure to attend Paignton championship show & enjoy the West Country hospitality where much thought is given to detail & organisation. Several of the terrier breeds are without CCs but the quality in the group, I felt, was really high. My thanks to the breed judges for sending forward top quality exhibits. I shortlisted eight which included the Border, Cairn, Skye & the WHWT, each made the going tougher for those actually placed.

My winner proved to be the Kerry Blue, Ch Millsblu Living The Dream at Perrisblu, how this bitch has matured into a truly special example of her breed. She is unexaggerated, so well balanced, very well built & was in fit hard condition. On the move she is sound & shows reach & drive & maintains her outline. Her coat had been beautifully prepared & is of such a clear colour. Every credit to her owner/handler.

In second place was the Norfolk, Ch Kinsridge Top Tip, another owner/handler & also in tip top condition. She is so well built with a very appealing expression. She holds her topline & showed so steadily. Her coat was also beautifully prepared & is of such good texture. She put in a good performance pushing the winner hard.

G3 was the WFT, Mal Ch Mastini Di Rihana Goes To Casino, he put in a superb performance, so steady in his showmanship & ring presence. I particularly liked his head & expression, very neat ear & carrying a lovely body.

Fourth place was the veteran Dandie Dinmont, Ch/Am Ch Pennywise Burning Ambition for Cassencarrie, in remarkable form for his age & showing such personality & zest for life. He moved round the ring effortlessly & covered the ground with ease.

Judge's Critique: Mr Tom Mather

My sincere thanks go to the officers & committee of Leeds for their invitation to judge the terrier group. I thought the Standard was high & there were some lovely dogs that didn’t make the shortlist. In addition to the four main winner I also shortlisted the Cairn Terrier, SFT, Lakeland Terrier, Stafford & the Kerry Blue.

My winner was the young Welsh Terrier bitch, Eskwyre A Dash Of Class, ultra smart & shown in perfect coat & condition. Well balanced with a good head, neat ears, strong jaws & sharp dark eye. Excellent forehand, short compact muscular body with a perfect topline & tailset. Strong muscular hindquarters with adequate angulation enabled her to move out really well. On her toes at all times & really made the most of herself today.

Runner up to the Welsh was Scottish Terrier, Ch Stuane King’s Sword, like the winner he too was shown in first class condition. Full of quality & type with a masculine head of good length, well slung sturdy, muscular compact body, well set tail & good topline. Absolutely sound on the move & coped well with the rather uneven ground.

G3 In third place the Manchester Terrier, Digelsea Declaration, grand head & expression with neat, well carried ears. Presents a good outline with his short back & very slightly arched loin. Moved well with some drive from the rear. Excellent temperament.

G4 For the fourth spot I chose the Norfolk Terrier, Ch Kingsridge Top Tip, she was my BP when I judged the breed at Leeds last year & she has matured into a top class bitch. Beautifully balanced & so typy. Expressive eye, strong jaw & well ribbed cobby body. Harsh, well presented jacket & on the move she coped well with the rather uneven surface.

RBIS BORDER UNION 15

RBIS was Ch Brackenfell Bok To Bach, Border Terrier, while the gleaming white Pyrenean, is obvious, this chap both sets you alive & comes alive on the move. He has that look of a working chap, with quality & soundness in abundance. Broad skull, strong muzzle with gleaming big white teeth, clean in outline. He stands on well padded feet is covered in a thick supple pelt with harsh impenetrable coat. His racy quarters propel him into action. He doesn’t miss a trick, such a grand chap & had to be to gain his reward in this company. Patsy Hollings BIS Judge's Critique

Terrier Group Judge's Critique: Mr Alan Small

I enjoyed my day at Border Union judging the terrier group. Thanks to the committee for the invite to this well run show & for looking after us on the day. Special thanks to the breed judges for sending through some outstanding dogs.

I shortlisted 8 including the Lakeland, Aiola Vd Schonenbergen; Norfolk, Ch Bellville Seduction; Skye, Ir Ch Knowlespring Jail House Roc for Trenson; & the SCWT, Middleburg Shooting Star.

G1 was the Border Terrier, Ch Brackenfell Bok To Bach, moves like a dream, lovely otter head, spannable & in good coat & condition, so true coming & going & in complete unison with his handler, presenting a lovely profile. He is the complete package & has matured into a quality dog.

G2 the Kerry Blue, Ch Millsblu Living The Dream at Perrisblu, so much to like about her. Pleasing head & expression, in grand coat & condition, good in body, moved with purpose with good reach & drive.

G3 the WHWT, Ch Kingsview Warwick, stunning Westie with a coat to die for. Lovely head & expression, best of fronts & shoulders, short backed dog that went like a dream.

G4 the WFT, Ch Mastini Di Rihana Goes To Casino, put down to perfection, lovely head of nice length, presenting a pleasing expression, good neck, short backed, harsh coat, went well using the large ring to advantage.

Group Judge: Thanks to the officers & committee for their kind hospitality & for the efficient way the show was run.

The standard of the group was very good & after shortlisting 8 my winner was Ch Kinsridge Top Tip, a quality Norfolk bitch who I have had the pleasure of judging before & have commented that she is probably one of the best Norfolk bitches I have ever gone over & a real showgirl.

G2 Berrystock Charlies Angel, a beautifully made Stafford JW bitch, loved her head & eye, couldn’t stand wrong & so sound.

G3 Kebulak Trigger Happy, a very well balanced Welsh T dog, put down in superb order, moved true both ways.

Judge's Critique: Johan Juslin

First of all I want to thank the show committee & the show secretary Mrs Angela Cavill for giving me the honour to judge the terrier group. I looked very much forward to this task. Also I want to thank all the officers for their very hard work they did during the show days. Hospitality was great & so was our new accommodation.

The new layout for the group finals was fabulous with the judges’ area under the same tent with a fantastic views in to the group ring.

This one was perhaps not the strongest group I have judged, some of the dogs lack the depth of quality I would have liked. But the winning Norfolk Terrier came in & stood out for the moment she entered the ring.

I shortlisted SFT, Lakeland Terrier & Manchester Terrier.

G1 Ch Kinsridge Top Tip, Norfolk terrier bitch, the most eyecatching breed in the group. She could easily be a dropped ear Norwich Terrier meaning my group winner was 100 per cent up to the Standard, cobby in type, fantastic head in profile. Excellent tail set. Low on hocks with correct bent of stifle. Showing all the time with smartness. Excellent jacket.

G2 Ch Alncroft I Spy, Parson Russell Terrier bitch, what a lovely head & expression with keen expression. Nice earset. Nicely arched neck. Nice body & tailset. Strong hindquarters. Moved very well around.

G3 Travella Sneak Preview, WFT bitch, very attractive & beautiful youngster in profile standing & moving. Nicely matured in body for age. Correct tail set. Fabulous coat condition. She will be the new star in the terrier world in one year’s time.

G4 German Dandies Terence Hill at Cloverwood, Dandie Dinmont Terrier dog, fabulous head with the typical expression. Lovely stop with a level skull. Nice earset. Excellent bones. Moved well around.

Geoffrey Davies Says
Dean Must Go!

Terrier World Called For The KC To Put Its House In Order Months Ago.
More Than Three Thousand People Supported The Petitiion.

In an open letter calling on the Kennel Club organisation’s General Committee to appoint a new chairman,  Geoffrey Davies said,  The KC had to get its house in order, and change was needed ‘urgently’ to address concerns expressed by its members. The grassroots of dogdom ‘think alike’, he said, and were not in tune with what was coming out of the KC’s head office in London.  He said he wanted Steve Dean removed at next week’s meeting of the General Committee. Mr Davies said that over the past year he had become ‘increasingly concerned’ about the way the KC was being led and directed.

Judge's Critique: Mrs S A McCourt

I would like to thank the officers & committee for giving me the opportunity to judge at this wonderful show. The ring condition is just superb, it is like walking onto a bowling green, & to be greeted by a really good line up of terriers was a thrill. Thank you to the society for their hospitality & for the lovely gift.

I shortlisted the following for further consideration all lovely examples of their respective breeds. Border, SFT, WFT, Irish, Skye, Westie & Kerry.

G1 was Ch Brackenfell Bak To Bach, Border, this dog is so sound I am sure he could easily cope with a day’s work on the fells. It is a joy to watch him move, he has good bone, lovely head & good neck & shoulders. Correct pelt & is shown in great condition & muscletone.

G2 was Ch Kingarthur Van Foliny Home, WFT, so well known but my first time judging him. He is shown in first class coat & condition, with a long lean head & wonderful expression, short compact body & a lovely handful behind the well set tail. He never stops showing & is very sound.

G3 was Ch Brakemill Barnum, this Skye is a favourite of mine & like good wine he keeps on improving with age! He has the three essentials of a Skye Terrier he is long, low, level & the 4th lovely! His head is a lesson to the breed, strong & masculine, good neck, long body with perfect topline, good well muscled rounded rear & good tail carriage. A clean straight coat completes this lovely picture.

G4 was Lakeridge Cahal, Irish of correct size & bone, good head & expression, firm body, was just a little unsettled today otherwise.

BIS JUDGE's CRITIQUE SKC 15

I was most fortunate that I really enjoyed them all, not a great deal between them, however there has to be a winner & today that was the Irish Terrier, Ch Lakeridge Cahal, a very special dog with so much going for him, he sent tingles up & down my spine, right from his excellent head & eye, hard, correctly built body, outstanding outline, harsh coat & truly precise movement. KEITH NATHAN BIS Judge

(Group Judge Critique Below)Terrier World - Lakeridge Cahal
Terrier Group & BIS

Thanks to the SKC committee for inviting me to judge here over the years culminating in this my first group. I couldn’t think of anywhere nicer to do that. I thought it was a very strong group with many good dogs who didn’t make the cut. I selected the Irish, Norfolk, Scottish, WHWT, SFT, WTF, Australian & Border.

G1 was the Irish Terrier, Ch Lakeridge Cahal, lovely head & expression, clean front with good legs & feet, textbook shoulders, correct topline with a racy outline, well angulated behind with a good tailset, showed non stop & in pristine coat & condition. He topped a grand group & went onto BIS.

G2 was the WHWT, Ch Tomlyndon Eager Ernest, lovely young dog who hasn’t reached full maturity yet, good head, eye & neat ears giving him a sharp expression. He has lovely shoulders, compact, tail on top with a shelf behind, well angulated & he moves well. In lovely coat, a very nice young terrier who pushed the Irish all the way.

G3 was Travella Sneak Preview, WFT, good length of head, nice eye, good ears, lovely clean front, nice shoulders, good ribs, compact & a lovely tailset. Moves soundly & just needs to mature to go to the top. Another bonnie young terrier.

G4 was Am Ch Absolutely Superstitious, SFT, loved this b/w smooth male, lovely clean well chiselled head, good ears, great bone, lovely tight feet, level topline, tail well set with plenty behind it. Moved soundly & again in super order. Lovely.

G2 the Irish Terrier, Lakeridge Cahal, which was another really good dog, had a good head & expression, great neck & shoulders with a beautifully body & good tailset, nice quarters & was also in great condition. Showed & went really well with the two young handlers, at the top of their profession, with a great rapport with their charges, well done.

G3 the Border Terrier, Brackenfell Bok To Bach, really nice head & expression, good neck & shoulders, nice front & good bone, nice body, good coat & good hind quarters moved & showed really well.

NATIONAL TERRIER 15

Judge: Mrs L Crawley (Ragus)

My thanks go to the committee for inviting me to judge at what must be considered the top show for terriers. I was looked after well and had a lovely day.

All 26 adult terriers were represented in the main ring, although the Norwich could only do a lap of honour due to the judge being the breeder.

I had some lovely dogs to choose from, nine being in my first shortlist. These were the Australian, Lakeland, Norfolk, Scottie, WHW & my four eventual placements, the Kerry, Min Bull, Border & WFT.

BIS went to the well known WFT male, Ch Kingarther van Foliny Home, this dog never put a foot wrong & is of such exquisite breed type, full of quality with a superb attitude & immaculate presentation to go with it, he has a beautiful head with a correct eye & expression full of spice & alertness, classic Wire outline a correct length of neck coupled with short back, he moved well from strong, driving quarters to secure this win.

RBIS was the Border Terrier, Ch Brackenfell Bok To Bach, whom I judged last as a puppy, he was lovely then & has matured into an outstanding adult, one of those rare Borders with charisma & style. From his lovely head, elegant racy body, good length of neck, perfect outline & correctly set tail to his neither overdone nor underdone bone & good movement, he is such a balanced dog, pushed hard to win.

G3 the Min Bull Terrier, Ch/Ir Ch Grasco’s Honky Tonky, is such a striking br/w, it is not often this breed produces the goods & I couldn’t overlook him, he has presence as well as beauty & never stops showing, he has a strongly built muscular frame with a determined intelligent eye & expression set into the classic head, a strong, long neck flows into a short back, he has strong rounded well sprung ribs with the slight arch over the loin, the correct bone & substance for his breed with the plus of good movement.

G4 the Kerry Blue, Ir Ch Dalstar Il Divo, such a lovely dog full of vim & vigour, he is upstanding & well proportioned with a good head & enough neck fitting into a short coupled body with good depth of chest, level topline & tail on top to complete a lovely outline, he moved really well from large well developed quarters, had a perfect coat texture being soft & silky & beautifully presented.

TERRIER GROUP JUDGE CRUFTS 15

What an honour it has been for me to have the recognition from my peers to have the opportunity to judge the terrier group at Crufts. This is a show that I have attended, exhibited & judged at from it days in Olympia its move to Earls Court & its home at the NEC in Birmingham. This without any doubt has been the pinnacle of my career thus far. I would like to thank all the judges who selected some quality best of breeds for me to assess from. I would convey my thanks to the organisers, & stewards without which we in dogs & the general public from all continents would not be able to enjoy our love of dogs.

My final eight I selected from a strong group in my opinion were good representatives for their breeds being fit for purpose without exaggeration. These included Australian, Border, Min Bull, Smooth, Wire, Kerry, Scottish, Skye Terrier.

G1 I awarded to the Scottish Terrier, Rus/Blr/Ukr/Cro/Lit/Lat/Est/Balt/Slo/Pl/Am Ch Mcvan's To Russia With Love, when this girl walked into the ring she immediately took my eye on her overall appearance & movement, she has the most exquisite head being long but in complete balance & proportion with her body. Super neck & shoulders with that true Scottie body keeping her topline at all times. On the move she covers ground effortlessly driving from her rear. In a super condition with correct coat texture & groomed to perfection. It was a great pleasure to witness my choice to compete with the other group winners & be awarded BIS at Crufts 2015.

G2 was the male Wire Ch King Arthur Van Foliny Home, a previous Crufts group winner himself last year. A dog of great breed type, classic Wire head, super layback in shoulders with correct body, tailset on top, strong quarters which he uses to advantage putting on a show for me & the arena watching. Put down in top order.

G3 Ch Brackenfell Bok To Bach, an impressive young Border whom I have already judged & awarded BP to. I predicted then that if he carried on he could well have a good future ahead of him & he did not disappoint. The otterlike head, true racy lines that kept shape on the move, harsh coated with a thick pelt. Well balanced & soundness that could fulfil a day’s work.

G4 the Miniature Bull Terrier, Ch/Ir Ch Grasco’s Honky Tonky, this br/w male was very impressive was a great showman. He possesses a great head of correct shape with deepset piercing eyes. Well muscled all throughout his frame with good well rounded body & correct spring of rib. Good depth of chest with strong bone. Very sound on the move showing his character.

Judge: Mr Jeff Luscott

Thank you to Manchester Dog Show Society for the invitation to judge at this enjoyable, relaxed show. I enjoyed a very strong competitive terrier group & thank the judges for their selections.

I made a first cut to 11 keeping in the Australian, Lakeland, Stafford, Welsh & Skye to see them move again, but not quite making my final cut to 6 today. The WHWT, Ch Tomlyndon Eager Ernest & Norwich, Ch Ragus Cool For Cats, both very close to the final 4 & putting in great performances. I liked the Westie for shape, head balance, coat & a great attitude on the move. The Norwich, well built in body, chest, rear end & coat texture, he is alert & moving with that busy action with the drive behind.

My winner of this outstanding group, in a great final 4, was the beautifully coated SCWT, Ch Janeyjimjams Jenson, a stunning boy with the lovely flow of soft waves in his coat cover, he is shapely & so stylish. He is a compact upstanding terrier, good in body with a typical head, skull length, excellent muscle & condition, good tailset & rear quarters. He was moving well with the style & action to take the group.

G2 Int Ch Skallain’s I My Me, Scottish T, quality girl with the low to the ground balance, great through head, skull & earset, well built in outline & muscletone. She has the coat, very agile movement, is active & alert. She has the drive, is well handled & went close in the end decision.

G3 Ch Millsblu Living The Dream at Perrisblu, Kerry Blue, exciting, upstanding, powerful girl with the balance & shape. She is good through head, skull & strong muzzle. She is building well in body with the chest & firm topline. She is in good coat. Handled well to move with the balance, reach & drive. Again in close contention for the top spot.

G4 Lakeridge Cahal, Irish T, very promising young boy with the head length, neck & lovely outline. He is well presented in great coat texture with the muscletone & movement. He is alert, lively & has that strong hard condition. He is in harmony with his handler & should have a great career & future.

BOSTON 15

Terrier World - Ch Janeyjimjams Jenson

The Boston committee must be pleased with the overall quality attracted to their show. It was a pleasure to judge this very satisfactory group.

G1 Ch Janeyjimjams Jenson, SCWT, an outstanding correct SCWT who was on his metal. In full maturity his harmony of proportion gave a complete flow of line nose to tail with a splendid coat. An absolutely correct head & expression, elegant arched neck, firm level back, good depth of brisket. High set on, correct angulation & musculation resulting in sound movement front & rear with a scopy stride. For me a star at his zenith.

G2 Millingford Royal Eclipse at Chatterdale, Scottish Terrier, 20 months black Scottish Terrier who fits his Standard well. Most impressive headpiece with desired length & punishing strength. Muscular but muscular neck, level well muscled back with good set on. Pleased in rib & substance, good forehand & well muscled rear, moved with purpose, coat in very good order, one of whom to proud.

G3 Ch Cobstoneway Moon River at Clipstone, Border Terrier, bitch of some quality. Very pleasing headpiece, reachy neck which blends through well angulated forehand into a firm level topline with correct set on. In good coat, certainly spannable in body, strong well muscled rear, moved soundly all round.

G4 Ch/Am Ch Ascot Sanspur at Yarrow, Norwich Terrier, well presented Norwich male, so well balanced, stands foursquare with good angulation, moves as true as can be front & rear. Good reach of neck, compact firm body with good set on, coat of good texture. Well balanced headpiece with very responsive expression.

A Former Top Judge and Kennel Club Member Is Sentenced To 8 Years For Rape
A Former Top Judge and Kennel Club Member Is Sentenced To 8 Years For Rape
Mitchell Seen Here October 2013 At The Utility Gundog Society

Kennel Club member and former Crufts Judge Vincent Mitchell has been jailed for eight years for sex offences committed nearly 40 years ago.

Vincent Mitchell (Kirkmoor), 82, of Lodge Farm Cottages, Kings Walden near Hitchin, Hertfordshire, had denied the charges, which related to offences which took place when he was in his late 40s, but was found guilty after a trial at Cambridge Crown Court last month. He was sentenced last week.

Mitchell, formerly a BIS and Championship Show Judge, who used to own Kirkmoor Kennels in Gosmore, Hertfordshire, was convicted of one offence of raping a girl aged between 14 and 16 between May 1976 and May ‘78, one of indecently assaulting her, and one of outraging public decency by inciting her to touch his private parts.

He was also found guilty of two offences of gross indecency with a child involving a brother and sister in 1982-3 when they were less than 14 years old.

The court heard they were not connected with the first girl.

Judge Jonathan Haworth jailed Mitchell for eight years and made a ten-year sexual offences prevention order which prohibits Mitchell from having any contact with a child under 16 without another adult present. He was also told he would have to sign the sex offenders’ register for life.

The incidents at the kennels came to light in 2012 when the rape was reported by the woman. The siblings also contacted police recently.

The jury acquitted Mitchell of another rape and indecent assault involving the same girl and was unable to reach a decision on two other charges of gross indecency with a child involving the brother and sister.

Mitchell, son of professional handler Billy Mitchell and his wife Alice, showed many top winners owned by Audrey Dallison, including three consecutive Dog of the Year winners. Latterly he has been involved with working Labradors.

There was always a rumour about Mitchell being a 'Flasher'.
An arrogant man who had a peculiar demeanor in the show ring when judging - as if he was dragging the dogs towards him.

Some years ago when Mitchell was at Leeds to Judge the Terrier Group, someone had sent him an anonymous letter about a Kerry Blue Terrier that his great friend Geoff Corish was handling.
He took the letter and showed it to a prominent Kerry breeder and the three of them decided that this anonymous letter was sent by 'Me' Tony Manning. They then showed it to Ronnie Irving
[KC Chairman at the time] and he swallowed the lie too.

My reputation was damaged severely and never quite recovered in the way that I would have liked. Anyone who knows me will tell you that I don't do 'Anonymous' - but of course you only have to read Terrier World to realise this.

Only the Bull Terrier and Cairn were absent from the full compliment of terriers.

Lakeridge Cahal, Sealyham, CH/AM CH. Goodspice Efbe’s Know Easy Way Out, Soft Coated Wheaten, CH.

Guess Who Is The Author Of The Text Below

"I decided in the 1970s, when my all-breed judging was really taking off, that it was time to stop showing. I saw it as conflict of interests! Today, of course, the thinking seems to be quite different. We now see many of our leading judges also continuing to show, and win at the highest level. I am sure this is one of the reasons we are seeing a decline in entries."
"The American Kennel Club has very strict rules – you can’t do both in that country."

It was Jean Lanning who wrote the above. I wonder what Ms Lanning thinks of 'Professional Handlers Judging; not only awarding CCs, but Judging Groups and Best In Show.

Clumber Spaniel Owner Refuses Vet-Check

The Owner of the only Clumber Spaniel at Blackpool Ch show refused to accept the Best Of Breed award because she did not want him to undergo the high-profile breed veterinary check.

The Only Way To Get The Kennel Club To Have A Proper Discussion About This Practice Is If All Best Of Breed Winners In These High Profile Breeds Refuse To Accept The Award At CRUFTS. Only Then When They Have Breeds Missing From The Groups Will The KC Be Dragged To The Table For Intelligent Debate. No Amount Of Wet Talking Will Make The KC Do Anything Unless Their Show Is Targeted. Why Is This? Because The KC Is Not A Club For Exhibitors, That Is A Smokescreen. The Real Kennel Club Is A Freemason Lodge And All Of The Important Decisions Are Taken In Secret.
A Much Better Idea Is For The CANINE ALLIANCE To Ask All Of Its Members Not To Accept Best Of Breed At CRUFTS No Matter What Breed It Is That They Have. Remember This; The Kennel Club Would Not Have A Show Without Dogs. Just As The Workforce Have The Right To Withdraw Their Labor; Exhibitors Can Either Not Enter Crufts Or Do Not Accept A Best Of Breed Award. I Can Assure You That If There Were Significant Numbers Missing From The Groups The KC Would Pay Attention. Imagine Butch Balding And The Boring Frank Kane Trying To Explain Why Dogs Were Missing From The Groups. Exhibitors And The CANINE ALLIANCE Need To Grow Some Cajones.

[I have been reliably informed I will be dealt with.
Geoff C Pierrepoint will pull the 'Lever' Hang Him High!]

In 1961 Pesident John F Kennedy Said This:

"The very word "secrecy" is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it. Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it. And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment. That I do not intend to permit to the extent that it is in my control. And no official of my Administration, whether his rank is high or low, civilian or military, should interpret my words here tonight as an excuse to censor the news, to stifle dissent, to cover up our mistakes or to withhold from the press and the public the facts they deserve to know."

TERRIER GROUP JUDGE'S CRITIQUE BLACKPOOL 14

I would like to thank the Blackpool committee for the opportunity to judge the terrier group, the main ring was in perfect condition and weather beautiful, making for a crowded ringside.
There were plenty of quality dogs in the group and after going over all of them I chose eight dogs for the final cut.
The S.B.T. Caymenstaffs Carlos Way. Kerry Blue T. Ch. Kebulak Rockin Robin
Norwich T. Am Ch. Ascot Sanspur at Yarrow. SC.W.T Ch. Janey Jimjams Jenson.
Skye T. Ch. Selena The Special One. Australian T. Gr.Ch. Temora Ri Diercc.
Scottish T. Royal Dragoon Captain Colin Campbell and Irish T. Lakeridge Cahal.
After a final look, my choice for Group 1. Was the cocky Norwich terrier, ultra short with quality bone and tight feet, classic head and ear placement, strong neck, tail on top and a jacket to die for, moved with drive round the ring, put down to perfection.
Group 2. The Skye terrier. One I have placed in the group before and his quality has not diminished at all, super head shape, good length of neck and well laid shoulders, long level back which he holds on the move, strong quarters and as always shown in tip top condition.
Group 3. The Irish terrier. Still a puppy but so sure of himself, straight front, enough bone, long lean head with perfect ear carriage, good spring of rib going well back, plenty behind the tail, he covered the ground well when on the move, topped off with a good harsh jacket, he went on to win the Terrier Puppy group.
Group 4. The Australian terrier. Full of himself, a dog with good bone, a super head and ears, which he used all the time, strong jaw, nicely arching neck into well placed shoulders, well ribbed, level top line with tail on top, muscular quarters and a quality harsh coat of correct length, moved like a dream.

Group Judge David Scawthorn Critique

I would like to thank the Scottish Kennel Club for inviting me to judge.
It was a well run show with good hospitality and my stewards were excellent.

Apart from the Irish Terrier Best of Breed who is owned by Tony Barker and John Averis it was a full group. There were some very good dogs to go over but I had to make my selection so chose eight from the line up which were the Border, Dandie Dinmont, Smooth Fox, Wire Fox, Kerry Blue, Lakeland, Norfolk and Sealyham.
Group one Kerry Blue
After moving these a second time I made my decision and chose the Kerry Blue
Weatherheads “Hallsblu Fibber Magee” Upstanding dog on the tiptoes of expectation, correct size with lovely coat and colour. He excels in his head, so clean and flat with no signs of cheekiness, well placed ears correct bite and pigmentation with small dark eye.
Long neck flowing into well placed shoulders, level topline with good spring of rib and tail on top, Well angulated quarters and front as straight as a gun barrel with plenty of bone and nice tight feet. Moved well and he has true terrier spirit, could’nt deny him the group.
Group two Fox Wire
Malzoni’s wire fox terrier “Ch Travella Striking Steel” A big winning dog in excellent coat and condition,well handled, lost out on the day on his movement.
Group three Norfolk
Philips “Ch Blakens Sugar Candy Kisses” so pretty, lovely head and expression
Good neck and shoulders. Short well ribbed body, in lovely condition moved very well.
Group four Lakeland
Lakeland Connells and Grahams “Stanstead Dita Von Teese” Quality bitch in good coat and condition, feminine head with good planes,well placed ears that gave her a good expression. Good length of neck, short back, good tailset,moved sound both ways.

Some of you may remember Terrier World's campaign regarding Professional Handlers Judging as well as the outrage at Crufts 2012 with a Pro Handler Judging The utility Group and his 'Partner' exhibiting in the very next group showing 'Their' dog. And, ex Kennel Club officials Judging whilst their wives exhibited at the same shows. The Practice of Professional Handlers Judging is still an issue that the Elitist KC Club chooses to ignore.
To remind you of 'Past' bulletins Click Here: 1
and Click Here:2 (With Updated Email Address For Mr Corish)
Judging and 'Handling' should not be allowed. It should be one or the other, as it is in America. But they (The Handlers) want the best of both worlds.
An exhibitor told me that seven years ago they employed a certain 'Handler' for a show. They prepared the dog themselves, they also transported the dog to the show themselves. The 'Handler's only input was to walk the dog around the ring. The bill for this outing was £360.00 and this was for a CC, BOB win and a group placing. And, this was seven years ago! It's little wonder they want to do both. Terrier World will shortly be examining the 'Meteoric' rise to 'Fame' of 'The Professional Handlers' culminating with one handler Judging Best In Show at Crufts 2013.

Another Of Our Great Handlers Has Gone; Ernest Sharpe.
I Always Took The Time To Watch Ernie When He Prepared The Dogs That Were In His Charge, A Master At What He Did. He Trained As A Draughtsman But The Lure Of Dog Showing Proved To Be His Passion. I recall A Wonderful Day At Michael Collings Kennels In North Wales, Also There Was The Late Herbert Atkinson And Frank Kellett - Both Now Deceased And They Were Great Handlers Too.
I Wonder How The Present Day So Called Top Professional Handler/ Walker Measures Up To Those Three Great Terrier Men?
The Answer Is He's Not Fit To Be Mentioned In The Same Breath.

BIS Manchester 14

Ch Travella Striking Steel

BEST IN SHOW JUDGE'S CRITIQUE

I would like to thank the officials & committee of Manchester Dog Show for inviting me to judge Best in Show. They are a hardworking team who do their utmost to provide a first class show. They also offer such tremendous hospitality; it is a privilege to judge for them. I had an excellent line-up for Best in Show, as all group winners were true representatives of their breeds & worthy ambassadors of each group.

My BIS winner was the Wire Fox Terrier, Ch Travella Striking Steel. I have judged him before but feel now he is in peak form, maturity has been to his benefit giving him that extra substance & muscle. He has a first class head lovely eye neat well placed ears a lovely flow of neck into shoulder & a short back. His presentation was immaculate, his coat gleaming with condition. On the move he was true up & down & produced a lovely side action. All in all a worthy BIS winner.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the officers & committee of the Boston championship show, for their kind invitation to judge BIS for the very first time, & also for the hospitality afforded to both my husband & I over the duration of the show.
The quality of the dogs sent through by the Breed Judges was excellent & BIS went to the Wire Fox Terrier male, Ch Travella Striking Steel, what a super little dog to lay hands on. He had the best of heads, with perfect balance between skull & foreface. I liked his correct forehand, shapely well covered frame, striking profile outline & dense wiry coat. He was on his toes the whole time & stood away for attitude, after watching him move I had no hesitation in sending him to the top spot.

Group Judge's Critique Mr M S King

Am Ch Kells Touch of Fleet St.

Can I thank the Officers and Committee of the East of England for inviting me to judge the Terrier Group, and the reception and hospitality throughout the day, it’s sincerity and warmth very much complimented the weather, which allowed the representative Best of Breeds to be shown in first class conditions.
Although, as not all Breeds are scheduled, not a full Terrier Group but a Group full of quality, indeed many of today’s BOB Winners, I have judged previously and given them principal awards, but such was the depth of choice, some had to remain cardless.

After initial assessment, I shortlisted 8 breeds for further consideration, including, Llwellyn’s Miniature Bull Terrier Bullypins Kalypso, Vaughan’s Parson Russell Ch Parrus Comanche Chief, Tovey’s Scottish Ch Trakside Flyingscotsman at Charmic and Fallon’s SCWT Ch Janey Jimjams Jenson.

G1 – Barker & Averis’ Am Ch Kells Touch of Fleet St. Really smart looking Irish Terrier demanding attention, with typical racy outline, keen expression and awareness, and harsh coat completing the picture. Overall in great condition and a worthy representative of the breed who warranted and demanded further honours.

G2 – Hedges & Bogovcic’s SBT, Suurisuun Boppinghams Birulai. Balanced throughout, demonstrating power and substance without being too big or too coarse, super head profile, well made shoulders flowing nicely into level topline, good deep brisket and close coupled, moved true.

G3 – Averis & Barker’s Airedale, Ch Katherina’s Land Spicy Cherry of Saredon. Very well presented and in super fit condition, handler works well to get the most out of her, head of correct proportions, well made body, I can only repeat what others have written before me but would summarise as a first class type, to be critical I felt she did not put all in when moving in the final consideration.

G4 – Tobijanski’s Janski Celtic Ceska, Cesky Terrier and a credit to the breed, feminine appearance and moving with briskness and elegance, if this breed had CC Status, I am certain that a certain title would prefix her name which she deserves.

In writing this critique, I have realised that the top 3 winners were all imported and the fourth place went to a “non native” breed, I am not sure what this says on me, but it should make us consider that overseas bred dogs not only have the opportunity to compete in the UK, but to win top honours and influence our pedigrees for future generations.

Katherina’s Land Spicy Cherry of Saredon, an attractive well balanced bitch, nice size, good outline, lovely feminine head well balanced with keen expression, good neck flowing into well placed shoulders and level topline. Good ribs and body, short coupled, muscular loin, soundly made quarters. Moved well, from driving quarters.

G3. Was Tinsley’s, Dandie Dinmont, CH. Cloverwood Royal George, a well balanced dog, good size and outline, Good head, balanced, strong muzzle, well placed shoulders, good soundly made quarters fore and aft, well made body, good typical topline, good coat. Good tail. Moved and showed very well.

Professional Dog Walker Geoff Corish BIS Judge Crufts 2013


Important, Impotent, Omnipotent, Implausible, Imposter;
Which Word Above Is The Correct One For Crufts BIS Judge 2013?

The Powers That Be At The Kennel Club Decided To Invite A Paid Handler To Judge Best In Show At Crufts 2013 - He Awards CCs In 37 Breeds.
They Could Have Invited Andrew Brace Who Is Far Better Qualified - he awards CCs In 85 Breeds. A Professional Handler Who Judges May Be Open To Accusations Of Venality. The American Kennel Club Does Not Allow Paid Handlers To Judge, Or Anyone Living In The Same House As A Professional Handler Either. How Can The UK Kennel Club Be So At Odds With The Americans?
Geoff Corish Will Be Based Over 4 Days In The Same Hotel As All Of The Other Judges. We Ask This Question; Is It Ethical After Judging BIS At Crufts To Then Continue With His Paid Handling Exhibiting Under Many Of Those Same Judges He Has Been Wining, Dining And Socialising With At Crufts?
The Answer Of Course Is No - And There Is A Stench About It That Would Make The Augean Stables Smell Sweet.

And, No Amount Of Sycophantic Videos Or Vast Amounts Of Press Can Alter Any Of The above.
(Omnipotent Is The Correct Answer)


Terrier Group CRUFTS 13
Judge(s): Mr Paul Wilkinson (Critique Below)

TERRIER GROUP JUDGE CRUFTS 13

I was honoured to be asked to judge the Terrier Group at this prestigious show. I enjoyed the day and had a number of quality exhibits to go over although a number of exhibits were unsettled and lost out on movement, after careful consideration I short listed nine dogs from which I would choose my final four.

After Moving my shortlist of nine dogs once again I chose for top honours Breezes Skye Terrier Ch Salena The Special One, as his name suggests this is truly a special one, so well balanced super head, powerful muzzle and underjaw, beautiful eye, good earset and great ear fringing adding to his lovely expression, excellent neck and shoulders wonderful level top line, powerful quarters, in gleaming coat he moved out free and easy it was a pleasure to watch him move excellent in profile pleased to award him Group 1.

Malzoni Lakeland Terrier Am Ch Iron Van Foliny Home WW Beautiful dog correct size, well balanced throughout, clean flat skull, stood on good legs and feet, superbly presented coat and condition on his toes all the time, moved out well, he pushed the Skye hard for top honours a close call G2.

MANCHESTER 13

TERRIER GROUP JUDGE MANCHESTER 13

My thanks to the officers & committee for their invitation to judge the terrier group & for their hospitality.

It was a very strong group with only the Bull Terrier & the Parson Russell absent.

I chose 8 dogs for further consideration: the Border, WFT, Irish, Kerry Blue, Manchester, Scottish, Stafford, & WHWT.

G1 was the WHWT, Ch Faymar Fine Romance, excellent head & expression, nice reach of neck, compact body, moved with drive, kept her shape on the move.

G2 was the WFT, Am Ch Hamptoncourt Mystique at Valken, sound moving bitch, lovely head & expression, good front assembly, well let down behind

G3 was the Irish Terrier, Wyndham Eithne, long head, well placed ears, good body with racy outline.

G4 was the Kerry Blue, Torum’s Calico Jack, masculine dog, correct balance throughout & impressive on the move.

JACK WATSON


BOSTON 12

TERRIER GROUP JUDGE BOSTON 13

I shortlisted 6 in the group: the Border Terrier, Dandie Dinmont, Lakeland, Norfolk, SCWT & the Stafford.

I was very pleased with my line-up, but I was disappointed that some other top winners had been beaten in the earlier stages & were therefore not representing their breed today.

G1 was the Lakeland, Ch Kebulak Man After Midnight, red dog with correct head & expression, well made throughout, super coat in first class order, moved & showed to perfection.

G2 was the Border T, Picer Grace Darling, lovely type, good head, neck & shoulder, excellent coat, sound mover, just beat the Dandie on coat.

G3 was the Dandie, Ch/Aus Ch Jollygaze Hopeless Romantic, top class bitch of excellent type, super movement. Just needed more coat.

G4 was the Norfolk, Brickin Uppercrust, good head, expression, neck & shoulder, excellent body, moved very well, a real showgirl!

Mr Bill Browne-Cole's Critique

Firstly I would like to thank the officers & committee for kindly inviting me to judge at this friendly & well run show.
I would also like to thank the judges who sent through some quality dogs.
Eight were shortlisted: the Kerry Blue, Lakeland, Norfolk, Scottish, Sealyham, Skye, WHWT, & the Wire from NSC.

G1 went to the WHWT, Ch Pepabby Prank, excellent head shape, very good overall make & shape, moved so well both going & coming, nice to see black nails, but it was his superb showmanship that just tipped the scales.

G2 Pushing hard in second place was the Skye, Ch Salena The Special One, beautifully presented, long punishing head, correct ears & placement, lovely arch to neck, the best of toplines both standing & on the move, a pleasure to see pads when going.

G3 was Ch Stuane Florette, top quality Scottie bitch I have long admired, she fits the Standard so well. In excellent form, but just lacked a little in animation on the final move.

G4 was Am Ch Hamptoncourt’s Mystique at Valken, WFT, classy bitch & very worthy champion, moved true both ways.
