SESSS Open Show - September 2006 Judge - Jesse Borregaard Madsen (Kennel Sieger, Denmark)

"Many thanks to SESSS for inviting me to judge at your open show. Thanks to the exhibitors and to my excellent stewards. I was very pleased with the atmosphere around and in the ring, which almost made me feel at home. I ended up with a line-up of three beautiful ESS, each one very true to the Standard and with excellent movement, which is very important to me.

In my general impression I think that there a few points I think need watching. Heads - eye colour - to get the right expressions eyes must have the dark hazelnut colour; I had quite a few with too yellow eyes. Pay attention to the proportions of the head, correct length of muzzle, not overdone in stop, and not too broad in skull. Several of the dogs were lacking in muscle especially in hindquarters that led to narrow hind movement. Remember it is very important to cover ground to get typical movement. Almost every dog had nice temperament and I did not see or hear any single mental problem in or outside the ring."
