Miniature Long-haired Dachshund Bitches

Thank you to the Club for inviting me, the exhibitors for their entry and to Ian for keeping the ring running smoothly. Exhibitors showing the judge their dogs teeth has been a “thing” since Crufts 2020 so I was surprised at how badly most exhibitors managed this – please practice at home – you should be showing the judge the front and both sides of the mouth – only one exhibitor managed to do this properly. There were several dogs whose teeth could have been cleaner  - and too many exhibits with rather small teeth. There were several tails with kinks and others with fused vertebrae – in similar numbers to 5 years ago. Temperaments were good considering the lack of shows until recently and a noisy indoor hall. The new(ish) floor at this venue is not nearly as good as the old one and there were some who did not like it, but I don’t think that explained the problems I found with front movement.

Minor Puppy Bitch (7 Entries, 1 absent)

1st: COX Cheritondax Chardonnay – mature red, would like a stronger foreface but everything else right for age and held a good shape on the move with promise of a good coat to come, won BPB on her front movement and BP too, although I loved the dog puppy’s head.

2nd: NORRIS Urishay Amandine at Criscan – immature b/t with a good coat and better foreface than 1, sound free mover but roaching slightly, close decision with 3rd
3rd: STEVENS Urishay Ambrosia by Sidburyhill

Puppy Bitch (9,3)

1st: WOOD Wildstar Wrolanda – red, looked lovely stacked, moved better after she had been on table, liked her ribbing and hindquarters and preferred her head to
2nd: MASON Crownlake's Queen Bee – not quite as balanced as winner but moved well, if too fast, both these scored in length of neck over

3rd: PHILLIPS Fallingwater First Love – red with a lot to like

Junior Bitch (5,1)
1st: WHITFIELD-ROBERTS Dandydayo Kiss the Girl – clear red who was a clear winner here, lovely head with good foreface . short coupled, well angulated, sound free mover with good drive, in the challenge she moved too fast and dropped her front
2nd: MCCARTHY Nagshall Santa Rosa – paler red who was a little longer in loin and not as level on the move, scored in length of neck over
3rd: PHILLIPS Summerview Holly Would 


Yearling Bitch (6,2)
1st:  PAIN Cwmdarhian Radio Gaga Ravensbeech – loved the proportions on this well balanced small b/t, sound with substance and a lovely attitude, well angulated fore and aft, moved really well in profile but a little close in front

2nd: WALTERS Ralines Lemontini, cream with more elegant lines than 1 and moved better in front but not happy in this hall today which affected her shape in profile movement
3rd: MCCARTHY Nagshall Santa Rosa 


Novice Bitch (4,2)
1st:  PHILLIPS Fallingwater Flower Power – red, very similar to 3 in puppy, sound mover, would prefer a stronger head, a little long in loin and running up slightly today
2nd:  FINDLAY Handburydax Phantom Lady – very immature cream who needs to body up and strengthen in rear – pleasing front movement 


Graduate Bitch (3,0)
1st:  POOLE Findowrie Miss McFee – clear red with pleasing head, well made, especially in front – moved well when she had the ring to herself so forgave a tendency to crouch when moving around with the others
2nd: COX Dolyharp Sweet Harmony, well presented red, not the coat or hind angulation of 1
3rd:  BIRDSWORTH Ambyth Back To Black

Post Graduate Bitch (5,1)
1st: DRADY Tolberg Cream Surprise at Indiko, close decision here, this cream is a little bit low to ground but is well balanced with excellent profile movement, would prefer a stronger foreface
2nd: PITFIELD Follyfield Farfalla – chocolate dapple with a little too much ground clearance exaggerated by lack of coat today and longer in loin, failed in feet to 1, free mover in profile but rather loose going away from me

3rd:  LARDEN Bronia Red Ruby

Limit Bitch (9,0)
1st: WALTERS Ralines Party Politics – best class of the day, close between first 4, winner is a sound free moving b/cr, well constructed with good forechest, feminine head, good ribbing, short loin, well angulated quarters, well proportioned with good ground clearance and correct dachshund attitude, in the challenge just lost out on front movement and coat,  RCC
2nd: ODDIE Ralines Lemon Drizzle at Riowood – sound free moving cream, same comments apply, just looked heavier through her forehand than 1 in profile movement

3rd: GEESON Abydachs All About Me 


Open Bitch (2,1)
1st: WOOD Wildstar Wrivera – looked an absolute picture on the table, very elegant red with good ribbing, short loin, good hind angulation, would prefer a stronger head and more positive front action, in the challenge appeared too heavy in front when compared to CC and RCC winners

Champion Bitch (1,0)
1st: GEESON Ch Abydachs Alchemy, well balanced b/t with best front construction and front movement today, good proportions, good feet, good ribbing, pleasing head and eye, good hind angulation and a sound free active mover holding her shape, won the CC and later BOB with agreement from my co-judge on her excellent movement


Lesley Patton (Judge)



After a very long eighteen months from the original day of this Show, I finally got my hands on this amazing entry of dogs, with no absentees! Many thanks to The Long Haired Dachshund Club for my first opportunity to judge Dachshunds at this level .My able steward Michael kept the ring running smoothly, so thank you to him too. I found  plenty of exhibits of good quality, and although slightly flummoxed by a new Breed Standard being brought out only a few days before, it only served to focus the mind. In general very few concerned me re ground clearance, though movement was not as active as I would’ve liked in some. Toy type heads were few in number although size wise, some were definitely more substantial and probably rather pleased there were no scales. As far as exhibitors showing me their  dogs teeth,only a few were particularly successful at it . I found that I was as a rule far closer to the exhibitor than I would have been had I been examining the mouth myself and would’ve  been able to see better, so not a practice I intend to continue. There was one youngster with some baby teeth retained. Movement was very important to me and I hope that has been reflected in my placings. When I turned to see my final line-up I was delighted  to see a row of dogs who looked able to be active and purposeful as well as being attractive Dachshunds.

I must mention some very attractive imported dogs, who although not fitting the U.K. Breed Standard , had some super qualities, especially beautiful coats and houndy heads, though with lower set ears framing the face.

Veteran    5

1st Phillips’ Rossdach Rave On – seven year old black and tan who did not catch my eye at first though appealed for size.. Fairly balanced muzzle to skull and strong jaw.  Eye perhaps a bit rounder than ideal , length to neck and head carried forward. Topline held  stacked and on the move, and length to height ratio seemed in proportion, with the required ground clearance. Perhaps not the best of coats but broad deep feet.. However it was on the move that this dog really excelled, parallel fore and aft, with effortless fluid strides. B.V.

2nd Broad’s Neertanauf Sea Magic J.W.  ShCM – eleven year old red dog in super straight ,soft coat. Muzzle equal to back skull , graceful neck, though a little out at elbow I felt. Compact body and full , broad feet. Moved with purpose.

3rd Weston and Johnson’s – Galrhia Twice As Nice at Ecotyne

MP  5

1st Mitchell’s Bronia King Crimson – smart red baby of just six months, appealing head, slightly arched skull, conical head and dark ,almond eye. Compact body and height to length ratio look right for age and stage. Sternum and ribbing extend well  and a lovely wee round bottom. Coat flat and soft and moved confidently.

2nd Wallace’s Ralines Just Jiles – eight months red , happy puppy in great coat. Liked head shape and balance , compact body shape and proportions, just would’ve preferred a bit more length to sternum. Moved out well.

3rd McGavigan and Pettigrew’s Pettigans Duke Of Earl.

P    2

1st Phillips’ Fallingwater First Light NAF – red of nine months with a beautifully proportioned attractive head, dark almond eye and high set ears. A little bit throaty but neck flows nicely into well set shoulders. Topline blends as required , has length to ribbing and full rump.Two to one proportions seemed correct and enough ground clearance. Coat soft and flat and not too much of it, also good feet. . Moved out with good length to stride and freely. BPD

2nd Johnson’s Charpurdy’s  Royal Oak – red with conical head and good balance, though eye set a little forward. Long, clean neck , prominent sternum . Ground clearance as required and plenty of soft flat coat .Moved well though struggling with topline at times.

J   4

1st Russell’s Russteck Moonbeam – black and tan , balanced in head , strong jaw.Enough length to neck and  prominent forechest,. Good ribbing and compact body shape with well held  topline.Proportions and ground clearance as required. Nicely rounded rump and full, soft flat coat. Moved freely with purpose.

2nd Poole’as Findowrie Mister McKye – attractive red dog, balanced head though perhaps a little rounder in skull. Good overall shape, slightly longer cast , in good coat and also moved well, topline held,

3rd McCarthy’s Nagshall Santa Paolo

Y   4

1st Lockett-Walters Hutzpah Heathcliffe at Ralines – eye-catching cream dog,so balanced in head and body proportions.Lovely almond eye, ,prominent forechest,length to neck and neatly oval front. Topline held beautifully, decent ribbing ,short in loin and a good handful of feet. Coat coming in, moved with length to stride, without effort. Seriously considered for R.C.C.

3rd McCarthy’s Nagshall Santa Paolo

N   2

1st Phillips Rossdach Rockspirit -  red dog with good ground clearance and plenty forechest ,  lacking in length of neck but good length to ribbing and shape ok. Movement a little bouncy,

2nd Graboowska’s Frodo Boy – dapple , a little unfamiliar with showing possibly, attractive head and beautiful coat. Rather tall , reluctant mover at first. but got there in the end.

G   3

1st McCarthy’s Nagshall Dutch Odyssey – masculine red dog with well placed eye and correct earset. Some length to neck and neat wrap around front.Compact body and pleasing topline. Correct ground clearance, decent ribbing and in super coat, straight and soft.Effortless on the move and with enough width fore and aft, also considered for R.C.C.

2nd Broad’s Dinkidax Dionysus – red dog who seemed of good proportions. Carrying a little dewlap and I thought slightly more upright in  shoulder than ideal.Coat of good texture. Moved actively.

Phillips’ Rossdach Rockspirit

PG   4

1st McCarthy’s Nagshall Dutch Odyssey

2nd Woodvine-Shone’s Hanishan Firecracker – smart shaded red, perhaps slightly rounder in eye but good head proportions.Topline held and presented in beautiful coat of good texture but standing and moving a bit close in front.

3rd  Drady’s  Tolberg Balck Adder at Indiko

L   5

1st Hall’s Cliffmere Woodman – this lovely red dog had presence and an outline than filled the eye. Clearly with the correct two to one shape and ground clearance too. Head to muzzle balanced , almond eye and strong powerful jaw. Head carried well with length to neck and well moulded front assembly. Compact body and hindquarters full and strong. Good feet and pleasing coat. Flowed on the move and parallel front and rear. R.C.C.

2nd Dunhill’s Zarcrest Flash Gordon at Gellijam – silver dapple, and another beautiful dog of great shape , well made and moved beautifully. However on the table and when stacked kept his eyes firmly shut, not something I’ve ever come across in the show ring. They were correct in colour and shape when I managed to see them.

3rd Weston and Johnson’s Ecotyne Devil’s Advocate

O   6

1st Woodvine Shone’s Ralines Sazerac – red masculine dog with a houndy head, eye just a little rounder than ideal. Enough length to neck and with ample room underneath. Held his topline on the move and stack and moderately long body. Free mover.

2nd Poole’s Findowrie Mr McKenzie – another pleasing type, red, with balanced head shape, flattish skull. Length of neck allowing forward head carriage, ribbed well back. Short in loin, and good topline. Strode out well, showing rear pads.

3rd  Wood’s Ch Wildstar Wreward

CH    1

1st Wood’s Ch Wildstar Wrobinson JW – beautifully presented charming  red dog, definitely masculine and definitely miniature. Head of balanced muzzle to skull ratio and lovely expression. Plenty of forechest and wrap around  front, completed by correct angulation at the rear. Full rump and flag tail complementing a soft straight coat. Flowed on the move with length to stride. C.C.

Along with my co-jduge we decided that B.O.B. should be the bitch C.C. winner Geeson’s Ch Abydachs Alchemy, B.P. to the BPB Cox’s Cheritondax Chardonnay and B.V. to the dog Phillip’s Rossdach Rave On.
