Midland Dobermann Club

Championship Show 12/11/2017

I would like to thank the club for their kind invitation to judge their commemorative show.
I had a very enjoyable day amongst some very nice people. Overall, there were some very good exhibits, my main criticisms on the day were loose elbows and feet that either were pinning in or a bit flat.
  Minor Puppy Dog. 3 Entries.
1St Richardson's  Jasprico French Rebellion. Just 6.5 months and what a showman showed like a veteran, never put a foot wrong. Head and eye colour good with sound front, tight feet long neck. Good topline and tailset with good angulation. Moved steadily. To be critical I would have liked a bit more of him, hope it comes. Could go to the top. B.P.I.S.
2nd  McLaren's  Teuschon Lex Luther. Head planes good with long muzzle, body good but not so short coupled. Shoulder and front assembly good, but feet need to tighten. Enough forechest, with firm sloping topline. Played up when moved.

1St  Mackintosh-White's  Supeta's Witchkraft. Good in head and underjaw,with dark well shaped eye. Enough forechest with tight front, feet a little flat, well arched neck into firm sloping topline. Very good rear angulation but played handler up on the move.

1St Feeney's   Via Felicium Vettel [Imp Rus]. Won on his overall confirmation, well handled. Head planes good with tight flews, and dark eye. Good shoulder angulation with tight elbows and feet. Forechest needs to develop but time is on his side. Long neck into short body with firm sloping topline, correct tailset and rear angulation. Moved steadily with strong driving action.
2Nd Santoriello's  Korifey Amulet JW.  Lovely showmanship free standing, nice colour brown, head with correct eye shape and colour. Arched neck into firm sloping topline, tailset good. Well muscled rear with good angulation. Preferred the shorter body of my winner, and needs to tighten in elbows but good forechest and feet. Moved freely but a little wide in front.
