I would like to thank the Scottish Doberman Club for inviting me to judge their show.
I enjoyed my day at an excellent venue with a good size ring and two capable stewards who kept things running smoothly. On the down side, movement leaves a lot to desired, with loose fronts and crabbing. Baiting has become completely out of hand, food continuously stuffed in their mouths. It's a pity they do not take a leaf out of the puppy winner's book standing free at 10 months.

2012 Scottish Dobermann Club Championship Show - Bitches:
My thanks and congratulations must go to the Committee for organising such a super day. The venue, arrangements and atmosphere were top draw and I thank my stewards (Roger & Scott) who did a great job in helping my day go smoothly.
Many thanks also, to all the exhibitors for their entries.
I felt movement had worsened and many bitches crabbed on the move and lacked drive. The mouths were good, but several pasterns were flat. Finally, several exhibits were baited, even whilst I was trying to review their mouths, which is not a habit I agree with or condone.
Veteran Bitch (Entry 4, Abs 2) 1. Heathwaens Dream Machine Nice brown bitch, pleasant in outline, balanced front and rear with good expression tight feet and shown in good condition, moved well.
2. Krieger Illicit Proposal Good B/T standard size bitch with ample bone, reasonable in outline, strong head with dark eye, movement not as good as winner.
Minor Puppy Bitch (7,1) 1. Kriegers Serbian Surprise Tall upstanding B/Tan bitch, balanced front and rear with nice shaped head, good planes, dark eye, good reach of neck flowing into level topline. Moved with drive.
