A great honour for an outsider to be given the chance to judge for this prestigious club. Dobermann are a breed of love and feel totally comfortable judging them. I first judged the breed March 1986 and have judge 90 classes with hands on 217 dogs.
Apart from the mouth you get what you see! Everything shows up on the move the overall quality today was very good, a few quite outstanding it was good to get the chance to judge five champions and other CC winners at an open show event.

In this entry movement was a problem for me, several weak pastern’s and some toe– in a few a little short in upper arm restricting the front movement and several lacking drive in their hindquarters. When I found good movement it was rewarded I also found one or two a little strong in back skull. 

Thank you for your entries I really enjoyed judging this breed club show. It was a pleasure to hear the applause for all the winners and I was delighted with my unbeaten line-up in both sexes.

Spindley Mytanamys Air Force one difficult class the 3rd dog instantly caught my eye but on the day wanst totally sound the winner scored on the move. Liked his shape and balance, masculine, compact pleasing head, eye ex bite long neck, liked his shoulder angles. Tight elbows deep well sprung body strong topline well developed muscular quarters east action totally sound pleases coming and going

2nd Parsons CH Izralight Take a Chance on me at Ottia most worthy champion in ex condition on the day not moving too well in front

3rd Cammoile CH Neartic High Treason of Shargraan. Pity this dog was not sound or he would have won this class (has to be on the day)

Gleaves, Izralight quick off the mark. 
Brown 6 months and a lovely prospect looks quality and at present very well balanced masculine very shapely liked his head e bite, strong neck pleasing shoulders, and clean front square with short back, straight topline with that slight slope front withers to croup pleasing quarters well angulated, such strong east action, true in front and behind

Junior Dog (5)
Sharpes Martifers the Joker, lovely youngster, looked quality and very well balanced his outline appealed to me very much. His head shape and the flow from neck to withers helped him top this class. Lovely angulation back and front easy sound action, I would expect him to do much winning.

2nd Fletchers Supeta’s that’s Enuf and again a quality youngster liked his outline and overall balance just thought he wasn’t as good over the withers and front movement could be better even so I did like him

Richardson Purroma Dark Impressions 
Cracking youngsters fills the eye with his quality breed type and masculinity elegant yet still has the bone and substance. Strong head in balance to size ex bite loved his neck and the way it filled into excellent shoulders and front no lumps or bumps over the withers with this boy. Strong quarters well angulated with strength on the hock joint. Good reach in front and drives from behind never once losing his strong firm topline. I was impressed and would be surprised not to see him go on to higher awards. Shown to advantage a real quality dog this of the type I like
