Yorkshire, Lancashire and Cheshire Border Terrier Club Championship Show
Venue: LONGRIDGE CIVIC HALL, Calder Avenue, Longridge, Lancashire. PR3 3HJ
Judge: Mrs Margaret Bailey (Grindelvald)
Entries: 129 dogs making 149 entries plus 6 NFC.
I would like to thank the officers and committee for asking me to judge the show, also making me feel so welcomed.
A big thank you to my 2 stewards Tracey and Kathleen who kept me on track, also to all the exhibits and exhibitors,
who gave me a lots of quality Borders to go over. I wish I had more CC’s especially in the dog classes.
My concern with in the breed, is their fronts, straight shoulders, with very little angulation, which effects the front movement.
All dogs had a good bite, a couple with level bite, but not a problem. All males were entire. Grooming needs to be addressed, tidying their underneath, also
the feet need to be neatly trimmed and the nails cut correctly, it makes such a difference when presenting them to the Judge. 1or 2 needed ring craft classes.
However, overall what a great representation of the breed.
I was very pleased with my main winners.
