NESBTC Champ Show September 2015- SPECIAL AWARDS CLASSES- Judge: Cvetka Bogovcic
I would like to say big thank you to committee of North East Staffordshire Bull Terrier Club for putting my name forward to the members to vote and that they chose me to judge their S.A.C.S. classes at their Championship show. I must say, that this is really a big honour to me. Special moments, because I always dreaming about judging Staffords in UK. For me, even that I have already 25 years of seniority as FCI Judge and that I was judged in my career more than 300 Staffords, this experiences push me for 26 years back and before I started, I felt like first time. I have had big concerns inside myself, how I will manage with mix classes – dogs and bitches all together. But during the first class, I found that this is not a big deal.... If you have eye for dog, if you know what you want to find in Stafford, there is no matter, if you have mixed class infront of you. I would like to thank the all exhibitors, who brought their dogs in my ring and allowing me the chance to go over their dogs. I enjoyed the day wiht your dogs very much! I was been little bit disappointed about number of absent dogs in every class. S.A.C.S. classes are practise for upcoming judges and each of us, who want to be one of you, need dogs in ring, not only in catalogue. Because of many absent dogs in class and because unfortunately I wasn't been informed, that even in UK you have time limit – cca 2 min per dog, I judged very slowly. I took my time for every and each dog, try to find contact with them. For me is part of standard also a character. If you just go over the dog without any touch feeling – than dog shouldn't show you any character. I like to provoke each dog to show a character, not only to stay in ring like a statue. I apologise to organisers, if I was been too slow.... but I am sure, that exhibitors didn't complain. This year I was attend on few shows in UK. As always, quality of dogs are from excellent to good. As everywhere. With black/brindle ones it is not difficult to find excellent quality. I miss all this with reds.... Everywhere, not only in UK. But I will not talking here about quality, because this wasn't been my point of judging. Judging S.A.C.S. classes is only training for judge. Excellent training in show ring and of course, for write critiques after the show. This is also a special challenge for me. Writing judging report few days after the show, not directly in the show ring!
SPECIAL PUPPY DOG / BITCH (10, 5)
In my opinion, the most quality class. Looking forward to follow all this puppies how they will develop and how they will do in their future shows. For sure few of them will have very bright future.
1st Miss Winwood & Mr. Tunnah - Nerotoro Stella – Lovely black brindle bitch puppy with small white spot on the chest. For me she is an eyecatcher. I like her very clean head shape. Dark round eyes with lovely expression, clean lips. Good deep muzzle with enough strong under jaw, neat ears. Nice short neck, straight front ample bone, plenty of rib, well tucked-up with short, enough coupling and nice bend of stifle. Level top line, which she keep also in very well movement.
2nd Miss Winwood & Mr. Tunnah - Nerotoro Dark Element – Another top quality, totaly black brindle male puppy. Similar comments apply as for first. Very well balanced for such a baby and displaying that same quality that draws the eye. Head qualities are bang on, helped by neat ears. Angulation on front excellent, neat feet, right height to width on front. Well ribbed, correct topline and waist, strong hindquarters, moved with purpose. I just prefer really excellent feminine, but still enough correct and strong head of first one.
3rd Mr. & Mrs. Miller – Skyland Unique – unfortunately went too quick out of the ring and I can't make any critique.
SPECIAL POST GRADUATE DOG / BITCH (14, 8)
1st K. & S. Wilson – Bullhawk Jessie Jay at Northstaff – Black brindle bitch with white oblong patch on the chest. Classic head, neatest of ears, lovely expressive dark round eye, short foreface, strong underjaw and correct bite. Good straight front, enough strong bones, well sprung rib, level top line. Short coupled powerful hind quarters, well let down at the hocks with a good bend of stifle. For me she is and excellent breed type, moved well, handled to perfection. I am very happy with my decision to put her on first place, especially because she was been award on the CH show with her first CC. Very well deserved!
2nd Mr. & Mrs. Williams – Canakey Sweet Cool Delight – Well develop red/white pied bitch. Good size and in very good condition. Her skull shape is correct with correct ear set. Good length of muzzle, enough deep with correct bite. I want just a little more pronounced cheek. Dark round eyes. Powerful neck widening to well placed shoulders, wide and straight front with strong pasterns. Good bones, well defined body with good rib and correct depth of brisket, short coupled, well bent stifles, well muscled rear end, moves with holding a level topline.
3rd Miss Rowe & Mr. South – Illori Akinlana – Very young black brindle male for this class. He have very lovely expresion. Beautiful dark round eyes, good muzzle with enough strong underjaw and distinct stop. Clean lips, excellent skull shape with correct neat ears and correct bite. His bones are still enough strong, but for my opinion, he looks little bit feminine. Short very balanced body, good front and tight feet, level top line, which he held also on the move. Enough strong rear quarters. Move with drive and handled well.
SPECIAL OPEN DOG / BITCH (12, 7)
1st Mr. & Mrs. Williams – Jodel's Fernando – Lovely red dog in good condition. He express a lot of character in each second in show ring. Little higher and strong, with dark mask and white patch on the chest and neck. Excellent pigmentation for reds. Beautiful keen head expression, very clean shape, even that he has very strong head. Good muzzle with clean lips, correct bite. Good stop with large round dark eyes. I like very much his skull shape and ear set all together. Strong neck into powerful shoulders, good straight front with straight well boned legs and good feet. Good spring of rib with ample brisket. Great level topline into a strong and powerful back end. Moved well, with a lot of energy and showing his lovely character.
2nd Mrs. Hall – Rekrahstaff Miss Attitude Cum Geordiestaff – Black/brindle 8 years old lady, with small oblong spot on the underside of her neck. A little bit gray on her muzzle, but this makes her more charming. She still looks great from all angles, very well balanced bitch. Lovely head with good length of skull and muzzle, neat well placed ears, excellent expression, nice short body with good depth and spring of rib. Good topline with well muscled and correctly angulated rear quarters. Moved very soundly.
3rd Mr. Smith – Staffash The Hurricane – Red/white pied standard male, who is not overdone. Strong in head without being coarse. Clean out lines, enough muscle definition in neck, not too wide in shoulders. Lovely spring of rib, level top line. I would like to see on him just a little stronger rear quarters and his too sloped croup took him better placement.
NESBTC Limit Show February 2014- Judge: Miss Julie Smith
For me the members show is a highlight in a Club’s calendar, a chance for members new and old to get together and enjoy their hobby in a relaxed atmosphere. It was a great honour to judge this show, the venue is lovely with excellent lighting, good prizes were on offer, the hospitality shown to myself and Adam was second to none and there was a lively buzz ringside – in all a very friendly, well run show. Thanks must go to my very capable stewards and a mention must be made of the forward thinking committee and the scheduling of the Special Awards Classes which were well supported and brought something extra to the show.
On to the dogs……
There were no significant mouth faults so I won’t mention this in individual critiques. There were a few canines with the tips chipped off but this is to be expected with the rough and tumble that comes with our breed. It was good to see sizeable teeth on a large proportion of exhibits and on the whole pre-molars were all present. I was disappointed to see dirty teeth on a few exhibits – oral hygiene is a health issue and should be routine. Condition on the whole was good but some of the dogs were for me on the lean side rather than in solid, fit, muscular condition. Some coats were suffering a little due to our harsh winter and constant central heating – these little things can easily be rectified prior to show season being in full swing.
Best In Show was McDonald and Foster’s Revelry Soul Diva, Reserve Best in Show was Horton and Dunn’s Albermarbull Running Riot. On the day the deciding factor for me was movement. The standard asks for free, powerful movement with discernable drive from the hind legs, the bitch on the move knew exactly where she was going and moved like she was on a mission, the dog today although he moved with purpose was out for more of a stroll and that was my deciding factor.
Puppy Dog (3, 1 abs)
1st Lindsay’s Revelry Dark Destroyer Bl Brindle top size puppy. He was well handled and shown in lovely condition. He has a lovely clean head, typical expression with a dark eye. Nothing looks out of place on this puppy, he is well balanced. He has a good front, leading to tight feet. A good depth of brisket is present with a decent spring of rib and short couplings. His movement is free and effortless. He is maturing nicely but has a long way to go until the finished article as you would expect. Won Best Puppy and Reserve Best Dog due to his overall balance and movement – he took everything in his stride.
2nd Summerfield’s Canakey Cool Funk Eye catching red and white top size puppy with a strong head enhanced by his dark eye and strength of muzzle. This fella has plenty of virtue. He has strength throughout and will grow into an impressive Stafford. He has a good front and shows no weakness at the pasterns. His feet will tighten as he gets more roadwork and they are well padded. He has a good depth of brisket and spring of rib. His backend is developing nicely. He was enjoying his day out and made his handler work hard to get the best out of him. He wasn’t as settled on the move as 1st but that should come.
Good luck with both of these boys.
Junior Dog (1)
1st Stephen’s Simbas Game Lad Bl Brindle. Lovely head on this chap, strong clean muzzle, good eye placement and the darkest of eyes. He uses his neat ears to advantage. He has a lot to like and is very similar in make up to his sire. Lovely front, tightest of feet and well put together. His mind wasn’t on the job initially and he took a while to settle down on the move – he crabbed up the mat first time up but when focused he moved well. This is a promising dog that needs to build on his physical condition to compete with the big boys in Junior and above. His coat condition was excellent.
Post Graduate Dog (4)
1st Horton & Dunn’s Albermarbull Running Riot. Standard size red and white. I liked his clean head and expression a lot. He has a distinct stop and shows well developed cheek muscles. He has strong pigmentation and has a dark eye. He is masculine with ample substance. He has good shoulder placement, a wide enough front, he has no weakness at the pasterns and he has the desired turn out of feet. He has a good spring of rib and depth of brisket. He is short coupled and has a level top line which he holds on the move. A balanced dog with lots to like. He was alert and focused on me at all times. He works well with his handler and moved true front and back. Best Dog and Reserve Best In Show.
2nd Patrick’s Welshstaff Last Gasp Bl Brindle and white Top size fella in good nick. He has a short, close coat of the correct texture which was in very good condition. He has a strong head, neat ears and a dark enough eye - for me he could be cleaner round the muzzle. This dog has developed considerably since the last time I saw him, he is a powerful dog who works well with his handler moving with drive and maintaining his level topline. He has a deep chest, good spring of rib and short couplings.
3rd Donkin’s Crossguns Conviction
Res Stoddart’s James Allerton Wonder
1st Patterson’s Sajojistaff Hells Bells Bl Brindle What I would call an “old school” dog he has plenty of breed type. Well within the standard. He has a classic head, with good ear carriage, strong muzzle, tight lips and strong under jaw. He has a good front, well placed shoulders, strong pasterns, well padded, tight feet, short couplings and good bend of stifle. He had that glint in his eye. Moved well and was very well handled by his young lady handler. Won over 2nd by virtue of a cleaner head and was better balanced.
2nd Stoddart’s James Allerton Wonder – there is a considerable amount of dog in this package and he is bursting with enthusiasm. He was well handled and boy did he make his handler work. This brindle and white chap is strong right through and his owner has him in good, solid condition with an excellent tuck up. He is within the standard and balanced but is too much for me right through - but different judge, different day? His temperament was super, he thought everybody was there just for him and was rightly enjoying his day out.
Open Dog (2)
1st Hall’s Geordiestaff Cannie Laddie JW Bl Brindle and white. Front on this chap has it all – lovely typical head and expression enhanced by his neat ear which he uses to advantage. Nice front, leading down to nice, tight feet. No weakness at the pastern and the required turn out of feet. Behind the collar he had well sprung ribs, short couplings and good topline. Personally I would like a stronger backend to balance the picture and that was my deciding factor in my decision for reserve best dog.
2nd Crosby’s Quatros Red Archibald This red and white boy was enjoying his day out and making his handler work hard. He was alert at all times and lively on the move. He has a strong head of good proportions with no fleshiness. He has a dark enough eye as he is on the lighter spectrum of red. This boy looks athletic with a bit of daylight under him. He was in good condition. I would like a little more spring of rib to finish him but at 2 years I don’t think he is the finished article yet.
Veteran Dog (1)
1st Vince’s Jessies Red Ranger at 12 ½ years young this red and white chap stole my heart. Back in the day there is no doubt he was an impressive Stafford. He still retains shape in his head and strength in his cheek bumps. He had a nice clean muzzle, strong underjaw and a good set of teeth. He is still showing muscle tone and his coat is in lovely condition. He moved at his own pace, still retaining his topline. He had a few aches and pains but I was in no hurry. He got excited when he got his biscuit at the end and still had a glint in his eye. Thanks for bringing him out.
Puppy Bitch (2)
1st Norton’s Eclypstaff C’est La Vie Avec Tikkurilan Lovely to see this Bl Brindle and white puppy looking and behaving like a puppy. At 10 months it was nice to see her with a covering of puppy fat and I have no doubt that this seasoned exhibitor will have her in top physical shape when she is out in the big girls classes – this puppy is enjoying her experience. She is standard sized with an absolutely gorgeous head and expression enhanced by well-set ears and the darkest of eyes. She is well put together and holds her topline on the move (when she allows you to see her walking on four legs).
Junior Bitch (2)
1st Stephen’s Midnight Trouble – second fittest in the show today and her coat condition echoed this. This black brindle has more to come she is far from the finished package. She has a lovely head and expression with a dark eye. Her head is clean and she is tight lipped. She has a bit of daylight under her but is well balanced. She holds her topline well on the move but she needs to be moved at a decent speed to get the best out of her – she is a live wire and is just under control. Muscular, active and agile well describes this bitch.
Post Grad Bitch (8, 1abs)
1st McDonald & Foster’s Revelry Soul Diva This Bl Brindle bitch demands your attention and looks you straight in the eye. She was in exceptional condition. Her coat was gleaming; she was in full bloom probably due to just coming into season and as a result perhaps just slightly more stripped out than normal? She has a strong head, strong muzzle and good underjaw. This bitch has great strength for size; she has a good front and is up on her toes. She was making her handler work today but he got plenty from her – they work extremely well together. She has a good front. She is short coupled and she has a thumping, strong back end and is well let down at the hock. She is full of herself and moves with enough front extension and plenty of drive from the rear (perhaps just enthusiastically over reaching on rear very occasionally when she is on her mission and losing self-control). Best bitch and Best in Show today and I am sure she will be in the cards on many an occasion. At just two years of age there is more to come from this lady.
2nd Bell’s Cannichbull Sweet Surrender JW This balanced Bl Brindle and white bitch was Reserve Best bitch. This bitch has plenty of breed type and virtue. She has a strong, well chiselled, clean head, dark eye and uses her ears well. She works very well for her handler. She has a good front, is well off for bone, has no weakness at pastern and has tight feet. She has a good depth of chest, well sprung ribs and that slight muscular rise over her loin. She is in good condition: her coat is close and shining. She moved out well front and rear.
3rd Scott’s Spenstaff Vinces Sweetheart
Res Patterson’s Darkridge In Anothers Eyes
Limit Bitch (4)
1st Murray and Fawkes Flintstaff Helena ShCM If I had a houseful of staffords this beautiful colour of brindle I would be a happy lady – we just don’t have enough of them in the UK at the moment. This is a lovely brindle and white bitch who has plenty going for her. Today she just wasn’t in the hard condition I was looking for. She has a cracking head, and strong under jaw, she uses her ears to advantage and has her dark eyes on you at all times. She has a wide enough front, good shoulder placement, no weakness at the pastern and good feet with the correct turn out and a bit of padding. She has good depth of chest, level topline which she holds on the move and a decent bend of stifle.
2nd Stephen’s Niatona Tracey Taylor I have seen this brindle go better than she did today, her mind wasn’t on the job. She is slightly longer cast than 1. She has a feminine head which is clean and of good proportions. She has a nice expression which his enhanced by her ear set. Her coat is in excellent condition and although she was hard to touch she isn’t in the condition she was in prior to maternal duties. She has a good front and tight feet, good depth of brisket and spring of rib, she has well developed thighs and adequate bend of stifle.
3rdCampbell’s Castlejack Dark Orchid
Open Bitch (2)
1st Bell’s Cannichbull Sweet Mystery ShCM Bl Brindle and white bitch shown in good condition. This lady was very focused on her handler her mind completely on task. She has a typical head and uses her neat ears to advantage. She won over two on balance. She is well put together with good shoulder placement; she has plenty of substance and is well off for bone. Her feet are tight and have the desired turn out. Fully mature she has a nice spring of rib, good depth of brisket, short couple, decent bend of stifle and well developed back end. She moved well front but a bit closer on the rear.
2nd Hall’s Rekrahstaff Miss Attitude Cum Geordiestaff This bl brindle and white lady with just the start of grey across the muzzle did have attitude – “mam do I have to?” Her handler worked hard to get this lady going. A bit longer cast than 1st. She has a nice head and expression. Close to veteran she still retains her head shape and cheek bumps. She has a good topline which she holds on the move. She is in good shape and has a well-developed back end.
Veteran Bitch (6, 2abs)
1st Norton’s Stormpike Cleopatra of Tikkurilan I know we are judging to the standard and not to personal preferences but this bitch is absolutely my type of girl. She is standard size with the correct blend of bull and terrier. This 11 year old black brindle is an excellent example of how good a Stafford can look well into veteran. She has a classic head of good proportions, clean around her slightly greying muzzle and those dark eyes have that special glint. Her expression is set off by her ear placement. She is very well put together from front to rear - her rear end put some of the youngsters to shame. She moved out well on the tightest of feet and she liked to think she was in charge! Her tail carriage was good – I do think this is an area we need to watch in the breed. In gleaming coat condition I seriously considered this lady for Reserve Best Bitch – I wish she shared my couch. Thanks for bringing her out.
2nd McFadyen’s Araidh Once Upon a Time - all the ladies in this class were looking well. There was no question that this was a bitch even with her strength of head. This bl brindle was slightly longer cast than 1st and has a bit more daylight under her. She was shown in good condition her close coat has the correct texture. She moved out well for her handler showing well developed thigh muscles. She won over third on balance, third had a slightly stronger head but I did think they are very similar in makeup – later discovered they are half-sisters.

NESBTC Champ Show September 2013- Dog Judge: Mr Tony Moore
Thank you to North Eastern SBT Club for inviting me to judge dogs at their Championship show on the 14/09/13. Both Barbara and myself had a very enjoyable day. A big thank you to all the committee for their hard work and dedication on providing a first class show. Organisation, hospitality, friendliness, venue all contributed to a fantastic day. Also thanks for my lovely gift and the kind payment of £25 towards my expenses. I feel any judging appointment to be a honour, and although it was a lovely gesture I decided to donate my expenses payment of £25 to the North Eastern Staffie Rescue. Big thanks to my two ring stewards Paul Igo and Mick Robson for all their help throughout the day. Last but not least to all the exhibitors for entering their dogs and allowing me the privilege of going over them. Overall quality was good although there were a lot of dogs soft to the touch, back ends in particular, condition and fitness costs very little.
1st Mr K Frankland - Aldwych Rockafella
