Report Mr. Claude Ritter

Old English Sheepdog Club Italia Campionato Sociale 1st October 2023

I had the great pleasure and honor to judge at the ‘Villaggio Spiaggia Romea’, a very nice place to be for holidays and also some nice events like a Club Show. This place is very Dog friendly, a lot of places are reserved for them. I could be a very good place for the EURO OES Show in Italy.

A lot of Thanks to the Comity, special to the President Mr. Luigi Spillare for this perfect organized Event, the warm Welcome and the nice Entry, about 30 O.E.S. and the Owner and Breeder.

The Club organized a nice Dinner on Saturday Night, I had the pleasure to meet almost of the Exhibitor and Comite Members. We had a very nice and Special Cake.

I started my judging on Sunday 1st. of October with sunny Weather, on a nice green place with enough Shadow for the Dogs and Exhibitors.

Almost of the Dogs were showed in good Health and Show conditions, almost of them got the Qualification Excellent, the Exhibitors were friendly and had fun.

What’s very normal in our lovely Breed, all the Dogs had an excellent character, it’s what we love at first. I found by almost of them an excellent and typical movement with enough Drive and Roll.

All of my Class Winners had an Exc. neck and shoulders, correct Topline and rise to Loin.

On some of them, I would prefer a better Coat quality and Color, but I found some of them with the typical Break.

We have generally, over Europe, a problem with the Teeth, to small and not so well clean, we have the same problem in Italy.

About my Winners:

Best Baby ‘Love Storm Astrid’, a very lively square Girl, with a lovely expression, she moved free.

Best Puppy ‘Apple’s Angel Only You’, a lovely, stable young Lady, she’s coming very nice.

A special Thank to the Owner and Breeder of my Veteran Girl ‘Multi CH. Apple’s Angel Pretty Women’ at the age of 7 years Old, she was showed in perfect Health and Show Conditions, she moved like a young Girl.
