First I want to thank the Staffordshire Bull Terrier Club of South Wales for giving me the opportunity to judge at their Championship Show. Coming from overseas it was a big honour for me. Thanks to the exhibitors for their entry and for making it a most enjoyable day. I also want to thank both my very competent ring stewards who made sure that everything in the ring went smoothly and were very helpful not only to me but also to the exhibitors. This club knows how to run a good show with a positive atmosphere, a spacious venue, cups and rosettes for all placed dogs and a friendly hard working committee.



 Our breed has got a wonderful character. The standard states:
‘Traditionally of indomitable courage and tenacity. Highly intelligent and affectionate especially with children’. When you make eye contact with a Staffordshire Bull Terrier, it should waggle it’s tail and it should want to find out who it is who is looking at him. It’s a worry for me that nowadays you find Staffordshire Bull Terriers who are shy and sometimes look frightened. Of course, especially youngsters, can be impressed by new circumstances, but that should not last long, and if an incident occurs our breed must recover itself quickly. In my opinion breeders should be more aware of the desired true open Staffordshire Bull Terrier character and don’t make excuses for undesirable behaviour. What has this got to do with showing, one can ask. If a dog walks up and down it should show energy, it must look like the dog is enjoying what it’s doing and that also shows in the movement. It doesn’t go down very well with me when a dog comes towards me and hesitates the last few metres and doesn’t want to come over and greet me. The true Staffordshire Bull Terrier not only should have the looks as required by the Standard, but also the temperament as required by the Standard.

 Showing a dog isn’t a competition where the dog stands the best like a statue or is the most focused on a bait. Our breed has got a brilliant sparkling character and that’s what I would like to see and experience. Training puppies with baits is understandable, but I think we must be aware that fully bait focused Staffordshire Bull Terriers makes them look so dull. Some dogs that I wanted to have a look at their heads were so focussed at the bait that I couldn’t have a proper look. 
I found quite some dirty teeth, and of course you can think ‘so what?’, but it’s a dog show. Make sure your dog is turned out in immaculate condition, clean eyes, teeth, coat and a very nice condition. Clean teeth isn’t just a cosmetic thing it’s also taking good care of your dog as dirty teeth will cause bad breath and ultimately loss of teeth which could have been prevented. 
I only had a few exhibits that I thought were really fit. The Breed Standard asks for well muscled hindquarters and for me it’s a great sight when you look at a moving Staffordshire Bull Terrier from behind to see the muscle strings in fully grown Staffordshire Bull Terriers and it completes the picture. Unfortunately only a few had those desired muscled hindquarters. 
The Standard asks for a free movement, powerful and agile with economy of effort. Not many exhibits displayed this, most of them had only fairly good movement, but I’m glad not having seen Staffordshire Bull Terriers being shown as hounds as in some countries it seems to become normal practice. With this ‘hound-movement’ we also get Staffordshire Bull Terriers whose back legs are too long. A Staffordshire Bull Terrier should be able to stand naturally with his feet almost directly underneath him i.e. in a line down from his pelvis.   For exhibits and breeders I think breeding towards the desired movement is certainly a challenge to breed and to show off.
