2016 Specialty Show results

Bullmastiff Championship Show June 2016

My thanks to the club for the honour of judging your championship show. Thanks to the exhibitors for their entries. I personally believe only breed specialists are qualified to do critiques however I’m happy to give a little insight into my reasons for my placings. I felt movement let a lot of the dogs down as they weren’t really moving with “power and purpose” but were rather plodding around. Most had good heads with correct black masks. Unfortunately I thought most bites were a little more than “slightly undershot” rather than the desired level bite. Top lines left a bit to be desired with some being rather soft and/or rising up to the rear both on the stack and on the move.
