Judges Critique:

The South Western Great Dane Club, 41st Championship shows ‘ League Finals ‘ competition 2023.

Thank you to Carol Gray and her committee for the invite to this wonderful event, one of the best things I’ve had the pleasure of attending. I got to judge some beautiful Great Danes , always one of my heart breeds as they were my childhood/teenage dogs. Thank you to the competitors for their sportsmanship, some of my decisions I was splitting hairs.

5 yr old Masculine Brindle Male. He has a clean head of good length , eyes well set , dark and oval in appearance with a lovely expression, ears correctly placed, I loved his head to neck set with a excellent arch which swept down to good shoulders , he has defined whithers with firm topline held at all times , good depth to his brisket and well develop chest, a little long in loin, he stands parallel all round and has good flat bone, he has enough turn of stifle and good length of second thigh, he carried himself proudly at all times. Overall colour league winner .

Premier League Bitch.

Dyson’s Primus Bond Girl Samdice.  

Brindle bitch, very feminine pretty but powerful girl, loved her clean length of head , dark oval eye set well, excellent reach of neck which was set well to head with a proud arch flowing to her excellent sloped shoulders and defined withers enough depth to brisket and good forechest , elbows tucked in well and stands parallel all round, bone flat, excellent topline, slight arch to her loins, she moved well all ways and stood with a proud  bearing which made her appeal even more.Beautifully presented. Overall premier league winner.


Super League Dogs

L & A Chappell’s Ch. Selmalda Jealous Guy (AI) 

Imposing muscular but elegant Brindle Male, he has a classic head of equal breadth throughout, masculine with strength but not overdone in anyway, defined chiselling and well filled under the eye, excellent dark well set oval eyes with a excellent expression, excellent ear set , medium neck with enough reach, set into excellent muscular well sloped shoulders and elbows well under his body, excellent depth ofbrisket and forechest, defined underline, good whithers and firm topline, he has excellent flat bone of substance , stands parallel allround, tight feet, he has a fabulous sweep of stifle and good second thigh, on the move this construction comes together and even in the smaller ring and carpet he moved with a light powerful movement.  He stands with an air about him that can’t be denied, they describe the Dane to have a ‘ look of dash and dare ‘ which he has in abundance.  Beautiful Dane.  Pleased to award him. Super League Supreme Winner 


Super League Bitches

E&D Clark’s Ch. Garsak Summer Days At Mintrex.  

This was my strongest class of the day with some very quality bitches, but this beautiful fawn girl caught my eye as she swept into the ring, she had that elegance and strength about her and she didn’t disappoint when stood either. When you stand and look at her your eye just flows, and your heart melts.  

She has a classic head, so feminine but not lacking in strength, medium set dark oval eyes with a strength of expression, excellent set from her head to neck with gorgeous arch that flowed seamlessly into strong sloping shoulders with defined withers, firm level topline, slight arch to her loin, well let down brisket, excellent forechest, elbows tucked in well,parallel front, flat bone with substance, tight feet, good underline, enough turn of stifle and excellent second thigh, on the move she has a that lithe springy action required and I saw enough for her to win this class, In the challenge she was unsettled on the move still so lost out to the male .
