Show Critique 13-04-2014 Dogs

Judges Critique Dogs, Staffordshire Bull Terrier Club of South Wales. 13/04/2014
Hugh Jordan, (Miculadh)

It was a great honour and pleasure to judge at this show. Many thanks to my Hosts the Scanlan family for their hospitality over the weekend.


Well run and friendly show with sporting exhibitors.


Not a Staffordshire Specialist so I hope my placing of the dogs gave my insight in to the breed. I found most dogs in good hard condition and dentition was of a high standard as befits a terrier. One or two tight fitting canines and a few dogs I would like to have placed higher but they seemed to have lost the fight with one to many hard objects.
No easy class winners and I could have changed my mind in a “heart beat”.
