Firstly thank you to the Officers and Committee of The Parson Russell Terrier Club for endeavouring to make this show happen amongst the constrictions of the pandemic. For many of us this was the first time out enjoying a dog show since Crufts 2020 and I am sure it proved to be an absolute tonic for many as it certainly was for me, enjoying the company of great dogs with their lovely owners and in glorious sunshine. It was a tremendous honour to be invited to undertake this particular appointment, in a breed that has become very dear to my heart in recent years. Dogs and exhibitors all coped brilliantly with the protocols imposed by Covid restrictions.


Given the restrictions many have endured in lockdown all of the dogs were an absolute credit to their owners in disposition, presentation and muscle conditioning. Coat and skin were generally excellent as were temperaments. I found lots of lovely heads with excellent dentition, expressive eyes and dogs that were very sound and balanced in their conformation.


As a small observation, in a couple of instances there were some dogs who impressed in their type, particularly quality heads with excellent ears and the correct ratio in length relative to height but then lost points in front construction with very short, steep upper arms which threw out the balance of their overall conformation and impinged on movement. This rendered some to be wide in front and not with the required moderate width between the forelegs. There were no isues with spanning though some were a little too cobby through the body suggesting a little too much spring in rib. There were a couple of dogs with very flat, splayed feet deficient in padding which could seriously compromise the capability of any dog let alone a terrier. A small minority had loose or oversized ears.


Ultimately, to have 50 dogs present with such an overall depth of quality was a gift but one which made for some very tough decisions to make between the top placings in some classes however I was very pleased with my final line-ups. In particular I felt my bitch line-up had outstanding strength across the piece with plenty of type and quality to choose from; it was a joy to see them all lined up together.

Thank you all for a thoroughly enjoyable day.

Firstly, I wish Jen Bowden (Chellowside) a speedy recovery from her accident which precluded her from being able to judge. I was delighted to assist the club at the ‘eleventh hour’ by bringing my 2022 Open Show appointment forward as the replacement judge.

I was very conscious that this was Jen’s entry and would like to thank all the exhibitors for their support in showing under me. Many thanks to Club Committee for granting me the opportunity to judge at this super event which also staged the Club Championship Show earlier the same morning.

Arriving just after the Championship Show had finished I had some time to relax after a fraught journey trying to get to the venue, circumnavigating the many closed roads around Rugeley caused by the ‘Iron Man’ cycling event. I was two miles from the show but it then took exactly 1 hour 13 minutes to get into the village and was somewhat relieved not to have arrived late!

Thanks to my extremely hard working stewards (especially in the heat) and to the Club for their lovely gifts.

I was delighted to be invited to judge the Parson Russell Championship show. The extensive road closures, due to an Iron Man event around Colton, delayed the start and unfortunately meant some exhibitors could not make it. Perfectly understood on possibly the hottest day of the year. 

Since I last judged the breed some aspects of the dogs are better but there are points that I think are worth considering. The entry, even before the Iron Man closures, was heavily biased towards bitches. Dogs need to be exhibited to ensure the future of the breed and whilst I understand that some have a preference of one sex over the other work perhaps needs to be done encourage the dog entry. The higher bitch classes were exceptional. Overall heads have generally improved as has the movement. The fox terrier influences on these aspects seem to have receded. The dogs on the day were all well shown and overall balance seems to have improved. However, some exhibits were difficult to span and height was perhaps over the 14 inches expected. The Kennel Club is very keen to ensure dogs are fit for function. Given the Parson is meant to be a working dog, a big chest and a long leg length would make that difficult for the original task. Many of the dogs were not as well muscled behind, obviously the last year has been difficult, but roadwork is needed to keep the Parson fit enough to follow the hounds. The other point that needs to be kept an eye on is back length, as long loins meant some were too long in back. “slightly longer than height...” is there for a reason. The stress being on slightly. 

Thanks again to the Parson club and in particular my stewards for an interesting and enjoyable day.

Reserve CC
