Critique for Champ Show - 23rd September 2017                          Judge Mr Tomas Rohlin (Denmark)

Australian Shepherd Club of UK Championship Show September 23rd 2017

Thank You very much for the invitation to judge this very well-organized show. I had a fantastic day. The atmosphere around the ring was very friendly and I felt very welcome.  You found an absolutely first class steward. Having judged the breed in many countries in the world, I was happy to see that the tendency of ‘bigger, stronger and faster’ was not present. Remember it is a herding dog, not a race horse.

I had 2 males and 5 females of absolutely top class. They could change placings anytime. The quality in whole is very good and there are few details making the top standing out. Bitches, as often, were higher quality than males.

Any judge that get invited to judge this show, should consider themselves fortunate.

Judge: Tomas Rohlin (Denmark)
