Dachshund (Long Haired)
Judge: Mrs C G Brace
Thank you to the exhibitors for their entries. I was honoured to be invited to judge this beautiful breed.
Some pleasant and hair splitting decisions were made. There are some very promising youngsters to follow.
Mouths were all very good and all had clean teeth. Some nails could have done with a trim.
Coats and presentation were a credit.
Movement away and returning was little unsteady at times in the space available. Unfortunately we were unable to be outside where they would have had more space to really show their paces.
