Dog Critique

The Cairn Terrier Centenary Show 25/04/2010


It was an honour and a privilege to have judged the Dog classes at this prestigious show, which is a milestone in the CTC history.

The organisation for the event was superb, but the logistics involved was made difficult, due to the volcanic eruption in Iceland, affecting flights to the mainland, but thank fully most exhibitors and visitors, of which there were many, managed the journey. This shows how much such an event meant to the Cairn terrier fraternity.

My thanks to the officers and committee for their hospitality, making it a weekend to remember, also to the hard working stewards.


The overall quality was generally good, but some heads were spoilt by incorrect ear placement.

Although rear movement has a times been a problem, front movement in some exhibits was poor, with a few exhibits straight in upper arm and lacked fore chest, and several had incorrect bites.


It was good that together with colleague Mr Bob Croyman who judged bitches that we were able to agree on major awards.

                      Judge Jack Watson.



It was an honour and distinction to be invited to judge the bitch classes at the Cairn Terrier Clubs Centenary show at the Lanark Agricultural Centre in Scotland.

The venue was excellent in particular for its position, parking and access, it would be difficult to find enough superlatives to adequately describe the amount of planning and preparatory work that had obviously gone into the organisation and management of this event by the Officers and Committee for this truly unforgettable weekend the content of which ran like a well oiled machine.

Also I give thanks to my ring Stewards and to all the exhibitors who had travelled vast distances from home and abroad to be part of this historic weekend.  

Prior to this show I had not judged the breed in this country for over three years and therefore, came with a fresh pair of eyes on cairns that I have never seen before, the overall quality ranged from mediocre to outstanding, temperaments were very sound, the majority had good double coats with a few being blousey, dirty and poorly groomed.

Heads varied, a number lacking a broad skull, stop, ear placement and those lovely dark hazel eyes, narrow muzzles which went with some very small and irregular teeth.

On a positive note however, the front movement had greatly improved but the rear ends still require attention with regards to over angulation, non-parallel hocks coupled with lack of drive plus muscle tone which resulted in some erratic  “tippy tappy” rear movement.

The toplines, tailsets, reach of neck and general overall size again was much improved.

My Principal Winners.

BCC & BOB; Thompson's CH Castleline Bonnie JW - this very feminine wheaten “stole my heart”, handled and put down to perfection, moved spot on both ways, the correct size in all departments, superb outline standing and on the move.
