Critiques From North Wales GSD

Judge Suzie Barnes 

Post Graduate Dog 3 1st Stanley Mrs R Lokean Blanik Sh.CM 3 males of very different breed type in this class, but my 1st place went to this 2 ½ year old correct size, med strength male. Blk and gold, expressive head and alert intelligent expression, would like to have seen a darker eye but good shape. Took my eye as he came in the ring with a look at me attitude without being over excited. Good length and angle of neck, correct wither into a clean overline made from a straight well-muscled back and well-muscled loin into a good length and lay of croup. Correct height to length ratio’s and well balanced front and rear, correct forehand and super hind angles with good turn of stifle in no way overdone. Sound away and back with a well-coordinated side gait at all speeds. Feet ok. Lots to like about this moderate male and was very pleased to award him Best of Breed over a very nice female.

 Limit Bitch 2-1 1st Stanley, Mrs R, Blanik Ivana Sh Cm 3 ½ year old blk and gold very feminine bitch, med size, med strength, good head planes, well set and angled neck into correct wither. Lovely overline, fur at tail set can detract but hands on proved a well set tail, correct height to length, slightly steep but good length upper arm with well placed shoulder, correct underline, good hind angulation. Good away and back and super side gait showing correct extension, shame we never had a larger ring as I am sure she comes to life on the move. Pleased to award this lovely female Res Best Bitch.

 Veteran Bitch 7-2 1st Stanley, Mrs R, Blanik Georgette. 9 year old paling black and gold female, feminine head, good height to length, retained her topline whilst on the move producing a strong well coordinated action away and back with steady side action. Looking great for her advancing years, pleased to award her best veteran in show.
