Champ Show 2019



Ms Lisa Hoffman  - Countyline USA

Some of the wonderful things that I observed with the Australian dogs was, great bone and substance and wonderful temperaments.  There may have only been 1 or 2 who shied away.  

When I am Judging I am looking for that dog who covers ground effortlessly and can cover ground without wearing out.  To do what they were bred to do and go all day!  Some things that I observed that would be things that would stop them from doing that, there were several dogs that were breaking at the pasterns, I don’t mind toeing in but breaking at the pasterns in my eyes are a major fault and lends to weak structure.  I also found several dogs that were heavy loaded in the front and pounded when they moved.  A heavy front also lends itself to wearing out.  It is always balance front and rear!

Thank you for the opportunity to Judge your lovely Ridgebacks, I hope everyone enjoyed it as much as I did!
