Judge’s Report

I would like to thank the British Manchester Terrier Club for inviting me to judge at their Open Show, and to the exhibitors for their super entry.
All exhibits had correct clean dentition and with only the odd exception were shown in polished, fit condition which befits the Manchester.
I was also pleased with the improvement in movement, especially in the youngsters, very few exhibited the high-stepping, short movement which had crept into the breed.
