The Scottish Kennel Club 2014


 24th August 2014



Thank you everyone for your entry. The dogs were well presented and on the majority showed well. Thank you for your patience with me regarding me asking you to move quite a bit. It is my pet hate I cannot abide or forgive unsoundness. And as we have all seen examples of this of late I wanted to make sure that my winners were all sound. And I am pleased to say I only found 1 exhibit that was unsound.
A couple of things you must watch when you next breed a litter. Slab sides, they must be a barrel shape (rounded in body). Short coupled. Straight stifles this can result in bad or even unsound movement. And also restricts the drive from the hindquarters, giving short steps. Necks must be moderate not short, once again can bring a problem with the movement of the neck. With age and coat if the neck is to short it will disappear and give a peke appearance.
