Coventry and District Canine Society

Judge: Corinna Diamond

My RBOB today and a very strong contender for the BOB who I have since discovered is his sire. With still time to mature further I will watch this youngsters show career with great interest. This 18 month old male had complete and correct dentition and two fully descended testicles. What a real character, oozing energy and enthusiasm he easily won this class due to his overall balance with no exaggerations, effortless movement and super clean outline on the stand. It was obvious this dog was fit for function in fact he benefited from movement as initially he was very excitable and only when he settled was I able to fully assess him. His young handler is very calm and patient with him, exactly what brings out the best in this dog. Not the largest of males however proportions are all correct, dry and clean head although cheeks slightly prominent. Small pendant ears with medium/dark eyes. Correct tan markings and coat. This dog had the strongest and tightest feet of the day and also the very best turn of stifle and great strength and soundness in hock. He uses his strong rear to drive away on the move, his general movement is very harmonious and effortless. Correct tail set and tail in proportion to his body. He is in good hard muscled condition. Loved him.

Correct coat texture and good tan markings, strong neck flowing into a nice lay of shoulders, giving him good forward reach on the move. Good angles fore and aft. Excellent drive which is produced from a well muscled rear, topline held on the move, 9 - 10 proportions, pleased to award him the class and RBOB.

South Wales Champ Show

Judge: Espen Engh

well grown male, stood very well over his legs & feet & is instantly attractive. Pleasing skull, well set ears, some tendency to bulky cheeks, muzzle just strong enough for his age. Beautiful eyes & expression. Excellent neck. Firm topline despite being on the long side. Ample angulation behind, I would like no more than this. Beautiful coat & colour. Moved very well from the side, free & with good drive, but like the majority could be improved from behind. BP;

Rottweiler Club of Wales

Judge: Simon Luxmoore

North of England Rottweiler Club

Judge: Jane Tibbs

An 11 month old puppy dog whose clean smart head is developing well. I loved his expression as he looked up at me. Again a lovely dark eye and well set ears having correct dentition. He has a nice straight front and a good fore chest for his age, with balanced angles to the front and rear. His markings are well defined and when asked to move he showed he is steady, holding his top line and with a good reach for his age. He was presented in such good condition and clearly at one with his handler.

Judge: Wendy Topping

11 month old puppy, another lovely boy, nice outline, sound mover, good size, good front and rear, good feet and markings, good tail, nice head just would prefer a less rounded and darker eye.

9 months puppy, maturing nicely, lovely head with nice width of skull, dark almond eye, correct dentition & dark mouth, good reach of neck leading into well laid shoulders, nice turn of stifle, well muscled, tight feet with good bone, moves well with reach & drive, very well handled, should have a bright future

National Working and Pastoral Breeds Championship Show

Judge: Joanne Johnson

very different type than the winner, far more mature & on first glance thought it would be the winner. Attractive head of different type to winner, medium eye. Straight front, good colour tan. Creates a good shape on the stand but lacked enthusiasm on the move & tended to lose his shape, well carried tail. Would prefer stronger quarters but hopefully this will strengthen with time

Windsor Championship Dog Show

Judge: Bridgette Bodle

8mth old and the best mover in the class, pleasing head shape with dark eye and good pigment, straight forelegs and good feet, moderately angulated quarters and shows strength in the hock, moved well particularly in profile.

Judge: Christine Robinson

71/2 month puppy, confident young man, developing nicely. Good width of skull, lovely dark almond eye, correct coat texture and rich tan markings, correct scissor bite and dark lip line. Strong neck, forechest,and good lay of shoulder giving him correct extension on the move.
Good bone and tight feet, hind quarters well muscled for one so young, which showed in his drive when he moved. Well handled and pleased to award him BP, and delighted to see him awarded RBPIS. Congratulations.

 

Coventry and DCS Open Show

Judge: John Feehan

a very nice 6 month old dog puppy with a lovely head & expression, correct shape dark eye, correct earset and dentition. He has a good lay of shoulder & reach of neck, a straight front and average bone for his age, he has a nice clean outline, a firm topline & excellent rear angulation. He moves freely and with drive holding a good topline. His return movement is dead straight but to be critical he is a little hockey behind but I'm sure this will improve if not disappear as he matures & his thigh muscles develop.

stood away here, very well put together, liked his expressive head carried on a super neck with gentle arch and flows into excellent shoulders, topline and straight front, knuckled feet, depth to quite well sprung ribcage, gentle slope to croup, excellent definition to hindquarters and moved out freely as expected, shows promise and just needs time to grow on.
