The Giant Schnauzer Club Open show 22/7/2018 (Standard and Mini Schnauzers)
I would like to thank the Giant Schnauzer club for inviting me to Judge Standard Schnauzers and mini Schnauzers, overall the dogs were presented very well with correct Harsh jackets, however some of the fore and aft movement needs to be addressed.
Puppy Dog (1)
1st – Lockyer, Miccosukees Mr Nice Guy- P/S 7months old, Typical head and expression with dark eyes, neat ears and a super mouth, short and square body, moderate neck sat on good shoulders, lovely strong bone and correct tail set, harsh jacket, moved well. Best Puppy Dog
Junior dog (1)
1st –Lewington, Perry Mason Grand Calera at Leebren. Black 17months old, one of the best black dogs I have seen in a while, in profile he gives me a square outline and nothing exaggerated. Nice head with the darkest correct shaped eyes, good teeth and strong muzzle, good for bone and ample chest, good rear angles, and correct tail set. Moved a little too fast by the handler for me but still moved well. BD
Post graduate dog (2)
1st Lewington, Perry Mason Grand Calera at Leebren
2nd Peffers, Miccosukees Playboy 2 yrs old P/S, Another nice male, stood square in profile, a little leaner than 1 but still had good angles all round, Typical schnauzer head and dark eyes, nice neck and shoulders, another good jacket, and moved very well, although rather slow by the handler to show his full potential. Res BD
Open dog (3,1)
1st Fletcher, Fivepits the Mole, 5 year P/S old larger male, Lovely long muzzle and nice ears, with a kind expression. Long in loin which gave him a long body, could have done with a better jacket, his movement won him the class today
2nd Bullock, Draco Alarm Beskyd for Ouseview, 3yrs P/S Shorter and square on profile than 1 with nice head, nice shoulders but a little wide on the front, slightly out in one elbow, which affected the front movement, overall a nice looking dog.
