Judge's Critique
 

Irish Wolfhound Society Championship Show

Sunday 25th September 2022

 

I would like to thank the Committee for the honour of judging this show and special thanks to Elizabeth Murray and Joan Williams for their help and organisation. Thanks to Peter Williams for his assistance at the table and my stewards Diane Redfern and Elaine Bogart.

 

Thank you to everyone who entered and allowed me the privilege of going over and assessing your hounds, I really appreciated it and enjoyed the day.

 

The hounds were clean and well presented with good temperaments, just a few youngsters were a bit in awe and some hounds didn’t like the floor.

 

I was very happy with my main winners quality, movement and type though the rear movement in a lot of hounds was closer than I would have liked and feel this does need watching and given consideration when breeding.
