BMD CLUB OF SCOTLAND CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW 1st August 2015
On behalf of my family and friends I would like to thank all the committee for a fabulous
weekend. All the hard work, time and effort from everyone involved in making this event
such a well organised, smoothly run show. We loved every bit of the show, stayed until
the show closed. Will definitely be back for next years weekend. Once again many thanks.
The dogs on whole I found were of good quality (ie my principle winners) but in-between I
found lack of bone, substance and height, also some erratic movement. Lastly, but by no
means least - handling; for some, maybe, it's time to go back to the basics to learn how to
present your dog to show it off to its best ability.
