My training has given me the knowledge to work with dogs exhibiting all sorts of behavioural problems, so however bad you think your dog’s habits may be please do give me a ring.
Group 2 was the Six year old Fox Terrier (Wire) Am Ch Hampton Courts Monte Cristo owned by Mr V Malzoni. Strong skull, good stop and good length of muzzle to balance. These were the young Irish bitch September Morn On Irvonhill, the Manchester Ch Digelsa Declaration, the Skye Ch Salena The Magnificent One and the Soft Coated Wheaten Ch Flaxela Weaver of Dreams.Good to go over, long punishing head, ears well placed in good body form and condition.

Lovely expression, excellent body proportions and so sound both ways. G4 was the big winning Border Hall & Ellis' Ch Brackenfell Bok to Bach JW which I have judged in a Group before and placed him then.RESERVE : WEST, Mr I & Mrs F & WEST Mr T Ch Int Ch Nord Swed DK Ch Tomlyndon Eager Ernest JW WEST HIGHLAND WHITE TERRIER (Dog) This is a dog I have always admired from the ringside and I was pleased to finally get my hands on him, he oozes breed type beautiful in profile, excellent head and neck, shows all the time, beautiful expression, with a harsh coat, good balance and construction, powers across the ring showing his pads holding a good topline and tailset. He is easily spannable, but still needs to gain some more width over the loin with maturity. G3 was a real favourite of mine in the dazzling little Westie bitch Burns' Ch Burneze Our Marnie.3rd : CHAPMAN, Miss C L & BRADLEY, Miss E J & HERD Mis Ch Brueik Tickled Pink By Berrybreeze SCOTTISH TERRIER (Bitch) This bitch really impressed me, excellent in head and expression, using ears well, good coat and furnishings, good construction and balance, plenty under the coat, excellent topline with an excellent tailset and plenty behind, I loved the way the tail stayed in place and ears up all the time in the ring, moved covering the ground well. A very smart, elegant and feminine bitch with lovely proportions and outline. A red Lakeland, another very smart and instantly attractive dog, self confident and keen. Very attractive young dog with a very striking outline. She was my BOB at the SKC on a previous occasion where she deservedly went on to win the Group and BIS under Sigurd Wilberg.A real showman with a long clean head and well placed ears, has a nice reach of neck into long well laid back shoulders, short in body, has a well set tail and good rear angulation, moved well to his advantage.
