Dachshund ( Long-haired)
Firstly I would like to thank the Officers and Committee for asking me to judge the Standard Long Haired and Miniature Smooth Dachshunds at their Championship show. I had a nice entry of quality standard longs which made some decisions hard and then a superb entry of miniature smooths to judge. Thank you to all of the exhibitors that braved the cold and gave me the opportunity of judging their dogs.
My only criticism is that there are now some mini smooths that have a lack of rear angulation which is leading to poor rear movement, and pinning in feet. There were a few with teeth that could have done with a clean but on the whole I was pleased.
