Utility Group

I was delighted to complete my first appointment for Japanese Chin in the lovely surrounding at Border Union showground. The dreaded covid made me wait an extra three years from my original invitation for 2020! so to say I was looking forward to the big day is an understatement. On the day it was extremely warm and sunny the heat impacted a couple of dogs negatively and
the sun resulted in most not wanting to open there eyes fully or squint so a few challenges. The entry was not large but I felt representative of the breed currently. I found several with poor dentition but my main concern was poor movement the ring surface should not have proved a challenge for any well-constructed fit for function Japanese Chin.

puppy coat which enhances his size further clearly masculine throughout with an excellent skull dark eye super moderate length
