THE DOBERMANN CLUB CHAPIONSHIP SHOW 2014

Bitch Judge Critique : Dr Andi Hudono (Harmonic Dobermanns)

I would like to thank The Dobermann Club committee for inviting me to judge their Championship Show. I am happy to see improvement in the head quality in the breed compared to when I last judged 3 years ago. More parallel head planes, darker eyes, better eye shape, stronger jaws. Still maintaining the very good front and hind angulations with very good feet. The quality overall has improved, many excellent dobermanns were not placed. In my opinion the top dobermanns in the UK will be able to compete in Europe. I had a wonderful time, judging many excellent dobermanns, meeting old and new friends. Hope to see you all again in the future.

Best Regards
Dr. Andi Hudono / Harmonic Dobermann

The Dobermann Club Championship Show 2014

Dog Judge Critique : Mr John Purnell

Many thanks to the committee for the invitation to judge this popular show held in their own venue. It was great to see the pictures in the club house of past champions of the breed as I have had an interest in the breed since the early seventies and have owned two bitches of my own, my last one died at fifteen years of age.

I was very pleased with the exhibits, I had some very hard decisions to make. I was very impressed with the dentition on the day, some pearly whites on show by most exhibits. On the day I was looking for a correctly balanced dog which was elegant to look at but also capable of doing the job it was bred to do and was able to move with plenty of drive and ring presence retaining back line and moving straight back and front. I was pleased with my placings.
