BUBA 2019 Judged by Johnathan Goulding


Firstly, I would like to thank the Secretary and the committee for putting on an excellent Championship Show. I had a wonderful day and thoroughly enjoyed my judging of the Dalmatians. I was also informed by the show secretary that I had drawn the biggest entries for the entire show. Judging started without delay and I was pleased with the big ring I was given. On a negative point I did notice that the breed is getting a lot of high tails which really does spoil the outline, and also a few need more ring craft training and this was especially noted when I was trying to go over the exhibit. Apart from that I found the Dalmatians were well presented, clean with well-groomed nails. I was more than pleased with a few of my placing and some would exchange places at different shows as they were that close. My BOB did the breed proud and was shortlisted in the group, also my BP was placed 3rd in the puppy group. It was indeed a pleasure to go over so many Dalmatians today and so I thank each and every one of you.
