Championship Show Report
1 May 2010
Mrs Griet Coetzer - Zeracious (R.S.A.)
would like to thank the Committee of the Staffordshire Club of
Queensland for the invitation to judge at
their Championship Show as well as all the exhibitors who
brought their dogs to show under me. I had a lovely time and enjoyed
having such big classes to go through - putting my hands on some
really good, well turned out Staffords and in many of the classes,
any of the first three placed could swop places on another day.
do believe the bitches (in general) were of better quality and depth
all honesty I was quite taken by discovering way too many converging
canines. I deliberately tried to separate the good mouths from the
bad mouths before even looking further. Sadly I had to eliminate a
few (otherwise) good specimen purely on this fault. Winning with
converging canine’s should not be taken as an approval by breeders
or exhibitors that their animals are an asset to the breed, it
merely suggest such judge ignorant or careless. I also think you
need to be mindful of the amount of light brown
within the breed. It’s not preferred, foreign and spoils a dog’s
expression. Breeders and exhibitors need to realise that the
responsibility starts (and ends) within their own values. Severe
faults will not go away without being ruthless in one’s breeding
to all the winning staffords (and handlers) and for the less
fortunate, their is always another show and another judge’s
from a few baby puppies who hopefully will still ‘drop-down’,
all males were entire. All placed dogs (in my opinion) also had
acceptable dentition and faired well on movement, moving with a
level topline and sufficient drive and reach, parallel viewed from
front and back unless otherwise mentioned.
