North Eastern Counties Dobermann Society Championship Show
Saturday 23rd July 2013
Many thanks to the committee of NECDS for inviting me to award Challenge Certificates for the first time. Thank you to all the exhibitors for the fantastic entry, I thoroughly enjoyed the day. Mouths in general were good, I found 2 level bites. Heads are very varied with several having unlevel planes which spoils the expression and many lacking in strength of muzzle and under jaw.
