    THE OTTERHOUND CLUB OPEN SHOW

    Sunday 3rd April 2022


    I’d like to thank the committee for inviting me to judge their club show, my steward & the exhibitors for accepting my decisions with such good sportsmanship.

     Special Open Working Dog or Bitch (2,0 Abs)

    1 st Griffiths’ – Pcoh Seiclon. Masculine head, kind eye & expression & good leathers on this 5-year-old boy. He has a super neck, straight well boned front, good body, depth of chest & ribcage. He holds his topline well & has very well-muscled quarters which allowed him to move with a good stride.


    2 nd. Griffiths’ – Pcoh Gloria. This 8-year-old lady has a good head & leathers, straight front, good neck & shoulder, well bodied up & has good quarters. Excellent coat, not as positive on the move as the winner.

    Puppy Dog (3,0 Abs)
    1 st . Nelson’s – Olphae Druid. 10-month-old boy with a pleasing head & eye, good forehand with lovely bone & feet. Good depth of chest, spring of rib, level topline & strong loin. His quarters were well made & wellmuscled & he moved out well in all directions. Shown in excellent jacket.

    2 nd . Tangye’s – Olphae Digger. Litter brother to winner, pleasing head, although I would prefer a tighter, darker eye. Good through the neck & body, excellent topline, tailset & quarters. Moved well

    3 rd . Pickering & Lee’s – Otis. Pleasing head & good forehand, I would prefer a little more substance throughout. Ok topline & excellent quarters, he was such a happy chap it was very difficult to assess movement, but he did have a good stride.

    Open Dog (3,0 Abs)


    1 st. Lerego’s – Teckelgarth Decimus. Beautiful head, dark expressive eye & nice leathers. He has a good forehand, into a well-balanced body, good depth of chest, level topline, short loin & very well-muscled quarters with a good turn of stifle. He moved out well in all directions & was shown in super condition. Just preferred the overall picture on the stack of this boy to the 2nd placed dog. BD & RBIS.

    2 nd. Ganna’s – Ch. Kingstree Warrior at Keepcott. Pleasing head with a kind eye, good neck & shoulder. Very good bone & substance, straight front, good feet, super topline, short loin & good quarters. I felt he was just looking a little light in body against the older more mature winner. He moved out well & has a very good coat.

    3 rd. Pcoh Seiclon.

    Junior Bitch (2,1 Abs)


    1 st. Harris’ – Olphae Dawn. A very promising pup of 10 months, she has a pretty head & expression from her kind dark eye. Super neck, shoulder, well boned front & good feet. Level topline, good depth of chest & spring of rib for her age, well ribbed back to short loin, her tailset is good & her quarters are well made. She moved well out & back & had a free & easy stride in profile. I fell for her charms & she fully deserved RBB, BPB & BPIS.
