Southern Counties Canine Association 2nd June 2019
I would like to thank exhibitors for the entry I received. I looked at my critique from the club show several years ago, has anything changed, I think the breed has worsened. There are some excellent specimens of the breed and quite a few who I cannot understand why they are being shown. Does anyone read the breed standard anymore? Exhibitors are constantly feeding their dogs when the judge is trying to go over them, making it difficult to assess them, as well as causing teeth to be dirty. I have no problem with people using food but please in moderation. Temperaments need to be looked at, Dalmatians should not be shy and retiring and certainly not nasty in any breed. There were a few short or curly tails this completely spoils the outline. I do not remember seeing any with Dally rash or dirty dogs. Despite the above comments I was very pleased with my winners, and believe I managed to find some with quality and type.
1. Townsend & Pardoe’s Kaytoni Oh What A Night At Daymadals, dense black spotting on lovely clean white coat, good neck and shoulders, dark eye, moved OK
2. David & Saunders Dallydyl The Loving Spirit, liver dog, bold and outgoing, moved ok, has old fashioned spotting
3. Harrison-Stratfords Dalkereve Dark At Midnight.
