Judge's Critique

Irish Wolfhound Society Limited Show

Sunday 26th March 2023


Thank you ever so much to the Irish Wolfhound Society for this lovely appointment. For me it is an honour for any judge to be invited to judge a club show, with wolfhounds being very close to my heart. There was a lovely atmosphere around the ring, with plenty of support and encouragement for winners. Thank you to the exhibitors for entering their wonderful hounds and their sporting nature, especially with most having already exhibited in the morning at the Houndshow. Thank you to the stewards for keeping our ring running smoothly.

Enthusiastic movement, however once settled looked in profile showing potential.
