IRISH SETTER CLUB OF WALES (OPEN SHOW ) 04 FEB 2017

I would like to thank the Society for inviting me to judge their Open Show and for their kind hospitality.  The quality of the exhibits was very good, but some of the movement was mixed perhaps due to the surface of the floor. It was a pity that some dogs did not make the best of themselves standing and played their handlers up!
