The Midland Dobermann Club held its 22-class Championship show at the Alfreton Leisure Centre, Derbyshire, with a good entry of 219 from 197 exhibits. I had the pleasure of judging the bitches, 120 making 133 entries.

Limit, Open and Veteran were amazing classes, high in both numbers and quality. Exhibitors were as always disciplined and courteous, posing and moving their charges correctly. But why oh why does every Dobermann have to be fed cheese, sausage, chicken and other bait when being gone over? The mess on the rubber mats with bits of left over bait had to be swept away at regular intervals by Harry Woodward, my splendid and efficient steward. 

When I first judged Dobermanns way back they were usually shown free standing, no baiting and with the handler standing in front of his/or her dog. Now!!!!! Nearly everybody crouches down behind the dog, positioning each leg and then still kneeling the feeding and baiting continues until it is time to move. Often the dog is then only interested in getting another tit bit and does not get into a smooth gaiting pattern. Today so many paced but I imagine that was because it was a bit difficult to get into rhythm on the first short part of the triangle.

Mouths were good throughout; some were shown overweight instantly taking away the Dobermanns elegance. Many failed in eyes-both colour and actual shape. There were some big, heavy and beefy bitches lacking femininity and shoulder placement in some could have been better. Best in Show was the bitch, Ch and Ir. Ch Aritaur Hipnotique.

I would like to thank The Midland Dobermann Club, its Officers and committee for a very nice day, a good lunch and I also thought a friendly and happy atmosphere prevailed throughout.

3rd Jebsons Sallate Smuggs Lady for Dejayotwo.

Open (22)1
Superb class full of quality. I had to be ruthless in order to make a shortlist from each half. I split the class into two to make the best use of the ring space available. Excluding one or two good bitches who were a bit heavy in condition and a few who lacked drive and purpose when moving. It gave me a real buzz judging a class of this calibre.

1st CC and BIS Fleming and Hendersons Ch and Ir Ch Aritaur Hipnotique, only 20 months. What a stunner! Top quality bl/t shown and handled to absolute perfection. Arrogant showgirl, who presented a fabulous silhouette and proud carriage on the move, which was free and effortless. Never stopped showing off using her neck to advantage. Feminine head, dark eyes, just right for body and muscle tone. Best of shoulders and toplines, good front, tight feet. Won the best class of the day and continued to impress in the line up for the CC, absolutely spot on for form and condition and could not be denied the big green card. 

2nd Walkers Ch Supeta Lyin Eyes for Sizlin JW. 5 yrs bl/r in good form, switched on showgirl who tried so hard, attractive head, keen bright expression, good body and depth, firm topline, well balanced, moved with drive. Her dam at 7 yrs was VHC in VB looking fit and well, so obviously a lasting line. 

3rd Completeing a superb trio.

Edyveanes Katea-mead Pinacolada JW 

Yet another lovely class
Dunns Kramnarak Straight Ace 10 yrs bl/t in marvellous condition, quality head, bright eyed with a good set of clean teeth, very good outline, sound active mover, fit healthy body, well tuned quarters, extrovert temperament and loving her moment of glory. Great credit to her owner for keeping her in such good form.

2nd Bennetts Denjani Miss Casright 7 yrs bl/r lovely head and eyes, perfect topline, good reach of neck, vivacious showgirl, purposeful mover, well handled as was 3rd, 

3rd Lanes Ch. Chaanrose Talking Point.
