Staffordshire Bull Terrier Club of South Wales.

Open Show, Sunday 7th April 2013.

Judge Ms Julie Kemp-Hale (Caymenstaffs) BITCHES                                               

Firstly I would like to thank the S.B.T.C of South Wales for the opportunity to judge this my first breed show. Also many thanks to my stewards who worked hard to keep the bitch ring in order and a big thank you to all exhibits who attended and for giving me the opportunity to go judge their dogs. I would like to add that the overall qualities of the exhibits were good, although few misplaced teeth and fitness of some needs to be addressed.
