Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club of Qld


Championship Show 6 July 2019


Judge: Mr. Ray Paterson


Firstly, I would like to thank the Committee of the Queensland CKCS Club for inviting me to judge their Speciality Show. It was a great honour for me. Sally and I enjoy exhibiting at this show, since I have been in Australia, we have supported the show as often as possible. Big thankyou to the Wyness family for looking after us so well, as they always do.


I thought the overall qualities of the exhibits on the whole was excellent. As you probably all know I like small, pretty compact dogs. They need substance and move with plenty of drive. I found them in abundance today! I was really pleased with the quality of Queensland bred dogs. In my opinion in the last few years they have come on immensely. They have good breed type and excellent movement and size has come down.


I was really pleased with my dog and bitch line up. Congratulations to all my winners and place getters.
