Best Puppy is Show: Jagen Gabriella Girl at Jappatin,


It was a great privilege to judge the second ever Parson Jack Russell Terrier Club Championship Show and I thank the exhibitors for the excellent entry of 149 dogs, the 31 absentees still left 118 to go over. I must also thank my very efficient stewards Maureen Broadstock and Dave Roberts for the sterling job they did in keeping the day flowing along smoothly.I feel that for the good of the breed I must be honest and critical in this critique. It is difficult to be constructive in criticism but please do believe my reason for writing what follows is to be just that in the hope that I may in some small way be able to help the breed move forward and unify.

Some exhibits could have been better presented, however this is a difficult time of the year to get the coats quite right, especially with kennel dogs, but there is no excuse for dogs being dirty and in some cases smelly. There are some very good dry shampoos on the market, if it is too cold for bathing. It was disappointing to find some coats showing signs of clipping and scissoring and some exhibits had been stripped out so recently that they were in their underwear. Coat is described in the breed standard and it is difficult to judge a coat against that standard if there is no coat.

On reflection type is becoming far more varied than it was a few years ago. It is easy to criticize this, but one must remember that in most breeds type is variable, due, in my opinion, to the element of variation in how we interpret the breed standard. It is therefore quite natural that the stronger the breed numerically the more people there are to interpret the standard differently.

However, I do hope that it does not continue to divide into even more different types at the speed it seems to be doing at present. Perhaps breeders, exhibitors and judges need to look toward their blueprint for the breed a little more closely. The old pictures of the Reverend John Russell's dogs are invaluable and show us what we should be aiming for, but please don't confuse these with the pictures from the early 1900s, which are of the early Fox Terriers who shared common ancestry with the Parson Jack Russell of today. I feel it is most important that we do not gradually allow our dogs to develop along the same lines as Fox Terriers. Our dogs were described in the Kennel Club announcement of recognition as 'A variant of the Fox terrier' but they must stand apart from the present day Fox Terrier, as a different breed.

I was concerned at the lack of depth of quality amongst the dogs but felt that there was a good depth of quality amongst the bitches, I was sorry in many of the bitch classes to have to send some from the ring cardless. It seems that often bitches are of a higher quality than dogs in many breeds, but let us remember the importance of good stud dogs and not just use the dog next door for convenience.


There was a great variance in size, which was worrying, with some dogs being very tall and others only just raising the measure. Some of the taller exhibits were really quite narrow, whilst we don't want very wide fronts we should remember that this is a breed that needs stamina and this requires room for heart and lungs. With the narrow fronts tended to go a lack of spring of rib which again, whilst we don't want barrel chested dogs, we do need some spring of rib. The all important thing is that the shoulders and ribs are flexible, not narrow to the extent of losing balance. Some in the carly dog classes were really quite thin and it does worry me that they were possibly being under done in an effort to keep size down and the rib small.


I was disturbed to find a few exhibits with less than a 'perfect, regular and complete scissor bite'. Whilst in this country we do not have to count a full mouth, our standard does call for the aforementioned and to my mind perfect is just that. 'Regular' meaning that teeth are uniform in size, where appropriate, and neatly in line. 'Complete' does suggest that there should be six incisors top and bottom, unless a veterinary letter is produced explaining why one is missing and confirming that it was present and correct previously. A scissor bite is simply one where the top teeth closely overlap the bottom teeth.

A few exhibits were apprehensive and one or two seemed to find the floor a problem. I am as guilty as any of not getting to enough training classes, but it is difficult for a judge to know whether a dog is moving or behaving badly because of the surroundings or just because that is his way, one can only judge the dog on the day. Quite a few exhibits had long nails in need of cutting back, several had thin pads and hare feet whilst some were short of muscle tone, unfortunately none of these factors help movement.


Although I have mentioned many bad points I have no wish to be negative about the breed and I must say it was encouraging to find lots of lovely PJRTs amongst the entry which I felt honoured to have been chosen to judge, thank you all very much for bringing your dogs along. BIS and BCC went to Norman Handy and Norma Field's Fellshied Top Talent, a lovely type of bitch who just could not be ignored. Good all through, correct wedge shape head with good dark eye and expression, good earset, good reach of strong neck with just enough arch which flowed into a well laid shoulder, good topline and tailset, nice thick pelt with lovely coat, correct balance and bone, moved very true fore and aft on good feet. DCC and BOS and RBIS Les and Pat Price's Howlbeck Izzi-Rite for Jagen, from where I stood this was the best moving dog in the show, as would be expected from one as well constructed as he is, at nearly three years of age just coming to his best.

Decided to play hard to handle in the challenge for BIS. BP Pat and Jan Dooner's Jagen Gabriella Girl at Jappatin, at only 7 months this young lady moved and showed like an old hand. She is very well balanced with a good head, nice dark eye, correct earset, lovely reach of neck, good shoulder, just enough body for her age, good height to length ratio, strong quarters, I do hope that she grows on to dori her early promise. On reading the catalogue later I see that she is by the dog ticket winner and litter sister to the winner of MPD.
