Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier Judges Report

My thanks to the Society for the opportunity to judge the breed once more, and the exhibitors for their support. The weather was kind and it was a pleasure to judge outside.
The breed seems to go through phases over the years but now appears to be adopting a middle road which augers well for the future. The Standard states ‘not exaggerated in any way’. Also ‘tail carried gaily (upright) but never over the back.’ Anything contrary to this detracts from the overall terrier character of the breed. I also penalised incorrect coats and over trimming. A soft, silky, flowing coat with loose waves or large, light and loose curls is asked for. The majority were but others were crisp or had tight curls. Movement is important, as they say “if it is made right it moves right”, most of my main winners had good reach in front and drive behind but a number were close in rear and lacking correct shoulder angulation. Size was more uniform but a few bitches were heavy and lacked femininity.

Minor Puppy Dog 1.

1 Dowdy’s Greentree Gold Mombo to Denzilly
Very promising happy puppy just 6 months and enjoying his day out., balanced head, scissor bite and good pigment. lovely coat, level topline, good tailset, well angulated, moved freely will tighten up with time. Was delighted to see he went Terrier Puppy Group 1. I like a puppy to be a puppy but meanwhile look forward to seeing the finished article.
