Judge: Lorraine Sylvester
2 years 4 months good sized male, well proportioned, masculine head, with dark eye, dark mouth pigment. Tendency to fly ears slightly spoiling his expression. Strong neck, slight roll over withers, liked his body proportions, depth of brisket & level topline, adequate front and rear angles, strong hocks. Tail a little tight. Good bone and substance, tan markings could be richer in colour. Adequate mover.
Eastern Counties Rottweiler Club Open
Judge: Joe Smith
28 months old of good breed type. Looks good on the stack presenting a typical outline. Movement wise coming at me a little wide in front & pinning on his left pastern. Markings a little pale.
Judge: Norma Window
2.5 years, very clean & smart, medium size, sufficient bone for size, well balanced although a tad stretched in the loins. Strong clean head of correct proportions, good stop, broad upper skull and strong muzzle, dark brown eyes of correct almond shape giving a good expression, well set ears of small to medium size, good mouth pigmentation and tight lips. Longer neck, needs more front shoulder angulation, slightly flat in withers and has wrinkle over shoulders, well developed brisket, straight front legs and very good feet. Good under and toplines and has a strong tight topline on the move. Long angulated rear quarters with strong hocks, moved soundly with sufficient reach and drive. Flat coat of correct texture with excellent clear brown markings, correct croup, tail set & carried well. It was a close decision between 1 & 2 but he just won it on his showmanship .

Judge: Yvonne Beckers
Large size, 2 ½ years, Friendly, social. Very good skull, well set ears that he can carry correctly, right ear folds. Very good stop. Medium brown almond shape eye. Scissor bite, dark pigment.

Has a correct head pattern, dark expressive almond eye, strong arched neck into good lay of shoulder, well made front and rear quarters, straight front, slightly sloping pasterns, plenty of bone, firm level topline held on the move. Moved with strength and purpose, power from rear, showed well. BOB
Rottweiler Club of Wales Open Show
Judge: Tracy Morgan
A very smart guy with a lovely headpiece of correct proportions, a dark eye of good shape and well filled underneath, neat well placed ears. Strong arched neck flowing into a nice sloping shoulder, which is well laid back. Nice width of front propped up on good bone with a slight incline to pastern and tight feet. Nice spring of rib and strong coupling, strong back with very slight slope to the croup held up by a well angled rear which he used to great effect. Topline and underline in harmony. Great reach and powerful drive displayed in side gait and very true coming and going. A real nice balance of outline, and always put himself foursquare without prompting and was in real good muscular condition, he made a very good account of himself in the challenge for BEST DOG, demanding the top spot and somehow managed to pull out even more stops when challenged by the BB to take BEST IN SHOW.
