    This show was a UK Kennel Club Championship Show.
    It was judged by an FCI judge who is not on either UK breed club judging list.
    It seems from the comments in his critique, that Mr Van den Berg was judging to the FCI standard.
    The giveaway comment is – Topline not level enough.
    Body – Deep and long, and longer than high.
    Important proportions – Body longer than high and LOW TO THE GROUND.
    Topline – Level.
    Body – Deep and of medium length, slightly longer than height at withers.
    General appearance – Body longer than high.
    Topline – slightly rising to a strong loin.

    The Glen was bred to extract Badgers. To all future Glen judges. Remember what the Glen was bred for. All Glens should be presented for the the job that it was intended to do.
