The Rottweiler Club Championship Show – 4th April 2015
BEST IN SHOW – Alan Rekert’s VONKASSEL DASKO
RESERVE BEST DOG – Chris & Norma Window’s CH. HANBAR MATCHO
Critique – DOGS Madame Maria Makomaski [France]
Thank you so much for inviting me to judge your Championship show. For me it was a honour and great experience to come to your beautiful country, to meet so many nice people and to see some excellent dogs. Generally the dogs were very good quality. I saw many excellent typical Rottweiler heads with dark, almond shaped eyes. We all should try to keep this original type, no un-typey and unwanted Molosser type heads with excessive stop and round eyes . I liked well ribbing chests, very good laid shoulders and pronounced forechests, excellent marking.
I believe that, in your breeding programmes, you should pay more attention to correct croup and tail carriage. Many dogs were lost their placement because of incorrect ring tail.
I was delighted with a dogs coming for the final – they were typical of the breed, adhering closely to the Breed Standard and moving soundly and harmoniously, as an endurance herding dog should! Four super specimens of the breed – I congratulate you. Thank you all for entering and showing your dogs under me and be sporting about my decisions.
I loved the ambience, the clubhouse was great and the catering super- thank you for your great hospitality ! I want to give a big thank you to all people from the Committee who made this show possible – you did an excellent job in every part ! ..…and my ring stewards for be so patience with me!
Hope we all meet again

R0TTWEILER CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW – 4th April 2015
BEST BITCH & RESERVE BEST IN SHOW
Trueman & Brownridge’s JAEGEROT CHEEKY VIMTO JW
RESERVE BEST BITCH Topham & Maltas VIRLEES CASSIOPIA
Critique – BITCHES Mr Roy Baker [Sylbecq]
Not having judged the breed since 2009 I was a little apprehensive about what I might find, but if my entry was anything to go by then the breed is in a very healthy state and on the evidence of what I saw at this show you should be very proud of your custodianship of the breed. Almost without exception exhibits were well conditioned and healthy. I found only three examples which were not Fit for Function, two of them had rear movement so bad that it could only have been caused by skeletal problems. The other bitch had wet eyerims. Bites were uniformly excellent, and dentition was complete. In the entire entry I found just one missing PM1. Temperaments were superb, not a grumble throughout my entire entry and only one exhibit that was even the slightest bit shy, and even she settled given a few minutes. Thank you to the Committee for the invitation, and to the exhibitors for making me so welcome and for accepting my decisions so sportingly. I enjoyed my time with you immensely.
1st Allen’s Ch JODIPAS KANDITIME JW ShCM. Excellent type, compact & balanced, gentle feminine head & expression, dark eyes, neat well placed ears, beautiful line through her neck into her well angulated shoulders, strong straight topline, correct croup, very well marked, tan clear but could be a tad darker, positive action, good reach & drive.
2nd Moran Potter’s Ch SUNDRIFTERS MASKERADE Another lovely girl, I just preferred Kanditime’s head & expression but still feminine, crested neck flowing into well placed shoulders, broad chest, firm straight topline, rounded croup, powerful driving action.
3rd Ch JHAVA STOP LOOK N’LISTEN, another wonderful girl who rounded off a trio of excellent bitches, super head & expression, dark eyes, neat ears, correct angles front & rear, strong topline, well rounded croup, moved very well, liked her a lot.
1st Dunhill Hall & Davies’ FANTASA SMIRNOFF BLU VIOLET, outstanding prospect full of type & quality, feminine head, delightful expression, dark eyes, neat well placed ears, excellent line through the neck & shoulders, firm strong topline, good bone, clear well placed makings though the tan could be slightly richer to advantage, true coming & going, superb fluency in profile gait. Best Puppy Bitch / Best Puppy in Show.
2nd Lambert’s SEITTOR THE TEMPTRESS, another lovely puppy, excellent balance & quality, feminine expression, well marked, strong straight topline, well defined croup, tail carried well, moved positively on good legs & feet.
3rd Hardy’s HIKAY’S DIFFERENT BY DESIGN FOR VARYKINO, balanced feminine head, dark eyes, well placed neat ears, top of muzzle showing rather too much ridge where the cartilage joins the bone, good forehand, strong topline, moved well in profile, slightly tight coming & going.
1st McClean & Shaw’s, LEYLA VON DER ALTEN FESTUNG (Imp Hrv) most attractive bitch, feminine head, well defined markings, rich dark tan, beautiful line through the neck & shoulders, strong straight topline, good underline & balance, moved true fore & aft, fluent in profile with good reach & drive, slightly rangy at the moment but an excellent prospect when she matures and fills out a little.
2nd Herbert’s KELANDAZ ADELAIDE FOR CEEAROTT, balanced, attractive head, good forehand, topline & quarters, slightly short in upper arm, another who needs time to come to her best.
3rd Tearle’s TIESTO EDGE OF TOMORROW, short & cobby, pleasing head somewhat spoiled by pronounced saggital bone, good shoulder, her strong topline lacks croup which results in high tail placement causing it to curl onto the back.
1st Benstead’s CARSAL PRISKA, lovely shape & balance, sweet feminine head, super line through the neck into well laid shoulder, straight strong topline, good croup, well set tail, moved true coming & going, very well in profile, must have a bright future.
2nd Spencer’s JEZEVE CARIBBEAN QUEEN WITH BELLARRY, shapely & feminine, strong topline, rounded quarters, well carried tail, moved very well, a beautiful bitch but for me the impression is spoiled by the smutty tan.
3rd Hopgood’s ST LYTHANS SEA BREEZE, pleasing bitch, sweet feminine head, neat well placed ears, eyes could be darker to advantage, excellent shoulder, firm topline, moved very well.
1st Lockyer’s SCANIAN A TASTE OF HONEY FOR GUARDAMI, quality bitch maturing well, attractive feminine head, well placed neat ears, dark eyes, pleasing line through her neck into her well laid shoulders, balanced robust body, outstanding action, well set & carried tail, another where I should prefer clearer tan.
2nd Harvey’s ROTTAMORE PRETTY IN PINK, attractive shapely bitch, good head, pleasing expression, wonderfully attentive, would prefer slightly drier skull, strong topline, correct croup, somewhat short in upper arm which extends her underline giving the impression that she is long.
3rd Courtney-Baughan’s PENDLEY IVETTE AT WHISPERDOWN, pleasing head, shapely body, clear well defined markings, good croup & tailset, dips slightly behind the withers but moves well.
1st Lambert’s SEITTOR THE TEMPTRESS
1st Topham & Maltas’ VIRLEES CASSIOPIA, I was amazed to find a bitch of this quality still in Post Graduate, lovely feminine head, superbly balanced body, wonderful line through her crested neck into well laid shoulders, strong topline, correct croup giving an exemplary tailset, true coming and going. In the class she appeared a little restricted in profile gait though she easily did enough to win; in the Challenge however, when the rings had been opened up she extended better & flowed round the ring. Well deserved the Reserve Challenge Certificate.
2nd Haigh’s TIANKO AGATHA, another most impressive girl, feminine head & expression, not the forehand of Cassiopia but good enough, strong topline, good croup, well set tail, moved fluently.
3rd Clark’s BOTLIERSKOP EMPRESS JAYDE, well constructed lass, excellent topline, very good angulation, skin too loose on her skull and jowls.
1st Trueman & Brownridge’s JAEGEROT CHEEKY VIMTO JW, even in an entry full of superb bitches this girl stood out for me, not just for type & quality but for her wonderful movement which is amongst the best I have ever judged in the breed. Medium sized bitch, balanced feminine head though the skull could be drier to advantage, dark eyes, neat well placed ears, superb body proportions, crested neck flowing seamlessly into well laid shoulders, firm topline, correct croup giving her a perfect tailset & carriage, excellent bone, the best of legs & feet, rich tan markings. On the move she is peerless having impressive reach & drive & never once breaking stride, an object lesson in just how well Rottweilers can move. Challenge Certificate / Best Opposite Sex / Reserve Best in Show.
2nd Leask’s DORTMUND GLAMOUR GIRL AT GRANJOLEA JW ShCM, another very nice girl, excellent head, great line through the neck & shoulders, strong straight topline, rounded croup, well set tail, not as positive on the move as Cheeky Vimto or Cassiopia.
3rd Reid’s DERSIEGER’S JETSETTER FOR TRECEALY JW, large athletic girl completing a trio of outstanding bitches, pleasing feminine head & expression, well proportioned body, good neck & shoulder, strong topline, richly coloured well defined markings, powerful action but I have seen her move better.
1st Clark’s DORTMUND SHOCKWAVE, stylish girl, pleasing head, dark eyes, well placed ears, very good line through the neck & shoulders, rounded quarters, well set tail, balanced substantial body, tends to slacken in topline on the move, nonetheless a very beautiful bitch who headed an excellent class.
2nd Softley’s Ch ROJANEVA KISS, another lovely feminine lass, pretty head, well angulated shoulder, strong straight topline, well set tail, tan could be darker, moved with great reach & drive.
3rd Fenwick’s RONMAL GUCCI BY GUCCI, very pleasing, feminine head, dark eyes, neat well placed ears, strong topline, rounded quarters, well set tail, positive driving action.
