Crufts 2015 Critique

Glen of Imaal Terrier

Temperaments were good except one nervous dog which is not typical, some straight fronts and level top lines, some also lacked substance which take away the essence of the breed. Some move to fast which throws them off balance. Coat presentation on the hole was good , but some lacked that harsh texture. I was pleased with my principal winners.
