TIBETAN MASTIFF

Thank you to all the Tibetan Mastiff exhibitors who brought their dogs along to Windsor on one of the hottest days so far this year, many were still moulting but all were superbly presented in very good body condition. I was checking back to the first time I judged this breed in 2002 some 17 years ago and have to say I have watched with interest how the breed improved over the years, I am however a little concerned with some of the poor fronts on some dogs. There are in my opinion too many whose feet point east west far too much and many who cross badly at the rear. This breed again in my opinion had to be strong and capable of walking mountain tracks too many shown today had virtually no muscle tone again in my opinion an essential requirement for this breed. Generally speaking the breed has certainly improved but still has some way to go for the sake of this lovely dog be careful when breeding it is a superb breed and I for one think it is a dog for the future. Thank you all for giving me this chance to award my first set of CCs in a breed I have admired for a long time now.
PD (4) 1 Tracey, Callowdaie Helios, 11 month old big Golden boy in superb coat, magnificent head and body, good top line correct tail carriage this boy has a lot going for him. A little work to his fore legs to strengthen his pasterns and straighten his gait at the rear will improve him 100%. Also may I suggest that the handler attend some handling lessons and this dog will go on to be a top winner. 2 Biddle, Richearon Bobo, 6 months of age and still very raw, very nicely balanced Black dog with exceedingly nice Tan markings in the correct places, lovely young head with nice clear eye and good ear set, fair dentition. Lovely coat, good body shape, good strong bone just need to muscle up now. Moved well just needs a bit of time to mature, certainly a lot of potential. 3 Perkins, Callowdale Harisch.
PGD (3) 1 Gardiner’s, Heronsview Harrington. 18 months old and one to watch. Excellent Black coat with correct markings, very well balanced, excellent head and top line moved extremely well. This young male has a very typical head for the breed. Strong to look at, nice and broad with good stop and super eye placement which are that deep brown that appear to look through you. Excellent muzzle nice and square with good strong and correct teeth. Strong neck to well placed shoulders, good bone to forelegs, good rib cage and lovely hind quarters, moved very well. I would expect this dog to do very well within the next 12 to 18 months. 2 Hindes, Wilsontus Ulmar. Gold dog of 18 months, this is a lovely and potentially excellent dog unfortunately he had virtually no idea what he was doing in the ring and as such we didn’t see the best of him however in my opinion he has a lot going for him. Excellent head with very good ear set, lovely kind eye (Dark Brown) good stop and correct square muzzle of good length with very good dentition. Nice depth and width of chest, good strong well boned forelegs, nice rib cage with very good top line, strong hind quarters with good angulation, once settled moved well. Time will tell with this boy with training and a good handler he has a lot of potential. 3 Perkins, Callowdale Harisch.
