Judge's Comments and Critique 8th  November 2008

Judge's report

First I would like to thank You for trusting me to judge Your Championship show. It was a great honour for me.

 

The puppies were good examples of the breed and I especially was impressed with their temperaments and their ring performance.

 

My best puppy -Mwenga's Special Brew - who also was best junior and got the male res CC was a beautiful masculine 10,5 months old male with lots of breed quality.  He moved very nice when he settled holding his topline strong and correct. His feet could be a little bit more compact.

 

My best female junior - Sonstraal Gabby Anny of Gabisa - who I also gave reserve CC was a beautiful livernose female with great attitude and excellent mover, still a junior but with lots of quality.  I love livernose dogs but for me to put up a livernose they need to be of really excellent quality and this junior so was.

 

My Best in Show was Veldtkammer Red Hot Chick at Jaloumi, a feminine bitch of excellent quality who covered the ground beautiful moving around.  A female that should have no problems winning anywhere.

 

My Reserve Best in Show was Sofala Lincon a strong masculine male of maximum size who had it all.  I would only whish he could be a little bit smaller.

 

My Best Veteran was Zougani Zamba excellent breedtype, strong masculine, well angulated rear but a little short upper arm which gives a little unstable frontmovements.  Otherwise a beautiful specimen.

 

There was a lot of variation with heads among the males.  Some with rather broad scull and short muzzle and lack of underjaw, some a bit cheeky and short necks, lots with short muzzle.

 

Croups and topline need attention - some croups are a little high with low tail sets. Lots of topline where dogs tends to fall down in front during movement, too high in the rear, and soft toplines. These faults disturbes the fluent move a ridgeback should possess.

 

Another thing that needs your attention is feet. I saw a lot of dogs with really flat feet and this is not  a breed quality. It's terrible for the dog and it ruin the dogs standing and movement.

 

Apart from this everyone was sporting and my ringsteward was excellent and considerate.  Thanks to all who made my day an enjoyable one.

 

Best regards
