On Saturday August 3rd I was honoured to judge the Swedish Parson Nationality Show. It was the twentieth anniversary of the show which made it even more special for me.

It is always a challenge to judge under slightly different rules but one made so much more exciting by handling some different dogs. On the whole I found a really good standard of Parson with many similar worries to those facing our club / breeders here in the UK – essentially height, movement and coats.

It is imperative we remember that the ideal height for a dog is 14 inches and a bitch 13 inches and breed towards this – there were some dogs that didn’t win higher honours simply because of their size. I also found that generally movement could improve – some dogs were a little close – and I genuinely feel this is one of the most important points to judge a dog on. It’s always hard to keep your dog’s coat looking good all year but there were a few dogs lacking coat at the show and a few with the wrong type of coat – something to work on!

All the dogs shown were in good condition with just a few a little overweight. I hope that all the exhibitors accepted that my critiques were just that – my opinion on the day, and other judges may hold different views. I was happy to see exhibitors enjoying the day!

I am very proud of all my ‘big’ winners and the type that I managed to find within the 50 plus dogs entered.

BIS 5 was the bitch Revefotens Pippa Singleton

Thanks to all the committee / organisers who looked after me so brilliantly from the minute I got off the plane, and made me feel very much at home. I had a great time and was particularly impressed by the meal that everyone – exhibitors and organisers – enjoyed together after the show. I wish we could find more time to do that in the UK with our fellow enthusiasts.
