Northern Dachshund Club 2006

Judge: Valerie Skinner


BIS: Cooper’s Sontag Simon Le-Bone. B/T Smooth Haired who was made up on the day. Congratulations. What a difference maturity has made to this handsome boy. Since I last judged him, he has filled out, his front is prominent, ribs have sprung and he has gained confidence. Classic head, reachy neck into good shoulder layback. He has strong well angulated quarters, giving him drive behind. He is sound with good movement, both fore and aft. So well made, with upstanding outlook. He is positive and free in movement, keeping good profile at all times. RBIS: Baldwin’s Beckel Blueprint. Min Wire. Also gained his title today. Quality d who looked v well on the move. Light brindle, who pleased in head, shoulders, ribbing and quarters. Had correct double jacket. His outline and underline were good, v free movement with parallel front and hind action. BPIS: Blackburn and Bennett’s Min Wire, Shelsall Up To No Good At Shardagang. Lovely youngster in excellent double harsh jacket. I loved her beguiling expression. Neck, shoulders, ribs - both length and & spring good, topline kept. She moved true, both fore and aft, due to her good turn of stifle. A little more confidence and she should do well; RBPIS: B/T Longhaired, Mitchell’s Bronia Playgirl. Another rising star from this kennel. Coat and presentation immaculate. Classic head. Her body proportions are all good. She has bone and substance and lovely hammy quarters. Looked good on the move. Outline correct.
