Northern Counties Dachshund Association Championship Show 2018
I wish to pass on my sincere thanks to the very hard-working officers and committee working in very trying circumstances. Holding back to back shows takes planning and when you are at the mercy of the bigger show many issues are beyond control. I congratulate you on running this happy show. Thanks to my brilliant steward running between rings, and exhibitors for their patience and remaining jolly throughout.
I have been away from the rings for a couple of years so had a fresh pair of eyes not knowing the latest fashion.
clean and well-presented aside from a few dirty teeth which really
is avoidable. Temperaments were excellent, taking into consideration
the weather which affected some younger ones making them a little
edgy on the table, I can totally forgive a good dog having a bad

This little black and tan blew me away. Gleaming condition,So confident, truly a dachshund in miniature, excellent head and eye, reachy neck, correct shoulder placement, nice tight elbows, sweeping underline, ample ribbing, strong topline. Not exaggerated in any area. He is arrogant and showy driving around the ring. I hope he reaches the top soon as he will truly be a great asset to the breed. Delighted to award him the CC and BOB, one I would be proud to own.

1st: WOOD Ch Wildstar Wrobinson JW
Top quality male who has already made a name for himself. Such a show man, quality throughout. Loved his head and expression, correct front assembly, firm topline, excellent ribbing and hindquarters. Very hard to fault. I like his size which will prove a bonus with some of the girls on the circuit. I really had to deliberate hard between him and his kennel mate as they are both top drawer, I just went with my own personal preference on the day. RCC to a worthy champion.
