Results of the 8th FLCGB Open Show
held on August 31st 2013 and judged
by Dr Margaret Buckley

What  a pleasure to be invited to judge Finnish Lapphunds at a Club Open Show. The venue worked very well. Nothing was lost holding it on the same day as the City of Birmingham Championship Show. The atmosphere was good, as was the Entry of 85 from 61 dogs with 12 absentees, and Exhibitors got the opinion of 2 Judges on the same day. I was looking for a well constructed workmanlike dog of good breed type. I forgave lack of coat in view of the very hot summer. There were some very good adults and some promising youngsters which bodes well. A few did not move as well as their construction said they should. Hopefully these will improve on another day.

Elbereth Suvituuli

 

Finnish Lapphund Club of Great Britain – Seventh 19 Class Breed Open Show. 1st September 2012.

Thanks to the committee for the invitation and to Jane my efficient ring steward.  My pioneering involvement with this breed spans nearly 20 years.  It upsets me to see so many bad construction faults that were not there in our early dogs.  Also, some are getting unbalanced by being far too tall on the leg and far too high overall.  Very few today have correct typical heads and/or correct coat length and texture.  A narrow head and muzzle and ears set far too high on the head are untypical.  These are serious faults and are clearly not characteristic of the breed.  Breeders need to be aware of these matters and only select dogs that fulfil the KC standard for breeding.  Slight variations of breed type are acceptable when general appearance is of high quality.  However, any attempts to materially change breed type general appearance (e.g. on the basis of working ability) should be firmly resisted.  Too many Finnish Lapphunds resemble a long coated version of the Finnish Lapponian Herder whose general appearance is taller, longer bodied and short coated with large ears placed nearer to the top of the head.

VETERAN DOG (3, 3)

1. ALLISON’S LUX CH OBERITZ OIVALLUS.  Excellent quality 8year old of correct breed standard type.  Strong typical head proportions with desired soft and friendly expression plus the required heavily coated ears of correct size and placement.  Correct length of neck.  Outer coat of correct length and harsh texture but today lacked full density of undercoat due to moult.  Body proportions and construction are typically correct; powerful and strongly boned with correct length of forelegs and width of chest.  Layback of shoulder is ideal, as is this male’s height to body length together with correct angle of croup, set of tail and correctly angled rear-quarters with muscular and broad thighs, and the required short hocks.  Correct typical movement. BVIS.  2. SHORT’S GLENCHESS REVONTULI.  Good quality 9yr old, perhaps not fully enjoying his day out.  Head is not as strong or well defined as class winner.  However, he has good body proportions with correct height to body length.  Correctly placed front and rear quarters giving good drive moving.  Coat was not at its best.  A variation of standard breed type but well within the breed standard; a true Finnish Lapphund!  3. BRIGHT’S SAMBREEZE HAMARA KAAKOA.

MINOR PUPPY DOG (2, 2)

1.  MOWATT’S LECIBSIN SALO OF TABANYARUU.  A very raw 7 month old that needs time on its side.  Good bone and coat texture for age.  Head is reasonably well proportioned but lacks depth of stop.  Ears are too high set but that may change when head matures.  The upright shoulder is of concern, as is the lack of rear angulation and somewhat high set croup.  The rear quarters stand too far under. True movement is therefore affected.  I do hope these matters significantly improve with maturity BPD/BPIS.  2.  SAWL’S HARGAMWOLD VELVOLLINEN. 8 month old and similar comments apply.  Especially the lack of rear angulation is of serious concern.  Breeders must pay more attention to these important health matters.

PUPPY DOG (2, 2)

1.  KOSIG’S ELBERETH TARMO.  11 months old and the most breed typical of the two.  Quite good head proportions, balanced body with correct front and rear angulations.  Outer coat is far too soft in texture.  Moved quite well.  2.  ALDER’S ELBERETH TULIN KAUKAA FOR LIMISHKA.  Similar age, another with an upright front and lacking correct rear angulation causing rear legs to be placed under the croup.  Head proportions should be much better defined at this age; more depth and width throughout the head is required.

JUNIOR DOG (5, 3)

1.  KOSIG’S ELBERETH TARMO.  2.  GREEN’S GILLESTA JUST ELIOT.  Good head proportions and ear set but muzzle does require greater width.  Balanced body and move okay.  Somewhat shy.

NOVICE DOG (3, 1)

1. ROBINSON’S OBERITZ RUMPALI.  What a star at his first ever show, for owner/handler too!  This superb quality 21 month old male defines the breed standard.  He demonstrates what a typey correct FL represents.  He would win top honours in Finland.  Such a handsome young male of totally balanced appearance both standing and moving.  He has a most superb head of correct proportions with correct ear size and placement.  His soft friendly expression is as compelling as his personality and true breed temperament .  Correct neck length leading to perfect shoulder placement.  Perfect ratio of body height to length of front leg.  Excellent well angulated rear quarters with short hocks.  Such a sturdy body with strong bone, correctly balanced body length to height; all wrapped up in a profuse coat of great quality and texture with the required leg and coat furnishings.  Well muscled throughout and in peak condition, allowing him correct front and rear movement as he glides effortlessly around the ring.  Watch and learn from this dog, he is an outstanding breed specimen.  Very honoured to award him BD and then BIS.  2.   GREEN’S GILLESTA JUST ELIOT. 

POST GRADUATE DOG (7, 7)

1. ROBINSON’S OBERITZ RUMPALI.  2.  WEETCH’S YPREAU ALEKSI.  Good type and general appearance.  Balanced head that just requires more stop to improve expression.  Correct strong bone, excellent front and rear quarters so overall body balance is very pleasing.  Good harsh outer coat that is lacking in many exhibits.  Moved well.  3.  WHITE’S GLENCHESS KEIKARI.

LIMIT DOG (3, 3)

1.  ALLISON’S OBERITZ KALEVALLA.  Another of excellent type with a correct head and body of good proportions.  Correct height to length of body, well boned with typical length of front leg.  Correct harsh and profuse outer coat with dense under coat.  Good rear quarters in angulation and strength together with short hocks.  Moved well.  2.  SHORT’S GLENCHESS ILOLAS.  Not quite the required definition of head but still balanced.  Standard requires more length of neck.  Correct shoulders and length of leg plus well angulated rear quarters.  More bone would assist in giving a more sturdy overall general appearance.  Good harsh outer coat but lacking undercoat.  3.  LLOYD’S ARIANRHOD KIRRINKURRI.

OPEN DOG (2, 2).

1.  SHORT’S GLENCHESS VAELTAJA.  A quality male of good breed confirmation and type.  He has perfectly correct semi-erect ears that are also set correctly on his superb balanced head; I understand many judges penalise his ears (please read the standard before judging!!).  Eye colour should be a shade darker but this does not detract from his soft friendly expression.  His front and rear assemblies are excellently proportioned enabling correct movement.  He presents a picture of overall balance in body length and height, strong in bone and body. RBIS.  2.  MILL’S PAJEANT AUBENEDICT SHCM.  Although stylish and with abundant coat, in my opinion he does not fully meet the general defined appearance and characteristics required by the breed standard.  In particular, the head and muzzle lacks strength and expression is somewhat feminine for a male, body proportions/ratios should be more balanced.

K.C. GOOD CITIZENS DOG (1, 1).  1. ALDER’S ELBERETH TULIN KAUKAA FOR LIMISHKA.

 

VETERAN BITCH (3, 3)

1.  LUCAS’S CURDELEON ILAMTAR.  Very typical with excellent proportioned feminine head and soft friendly expression.  Very well balanced body proportions, strong bone,  excellent mover.  Soft outer coat but has dense undercoat.  2.  MOWATT’S TABANYARUU SISKO.  Less typical head but has well proportioned body shape.  Very showy girl that moves ok.  Good quality outer coat but lacks under coat.  3.  WEETCH’S HILDREK SISKIN D’YPREAU. 

MINOR PUPPY BITCH (3, 3)

A disappointing class. 1.  COSSEY’S HARGAMWOLD LOIKKIA.  6 months old.  I hope time will improve but on the day her head proportions and ear set left much to be desired.  Even bitches should have a strongly featured broad head.  Unfortunately, she is too upright in front and rear quarters and therefore not balanced in body which affected movement.  2. BROWN’S LECIBSIN SAMETTI.  7 month old that did not want to be handled.  Temperament needs to be stronger.  Her head at this time requires a lot of change to achieve a typical head and expression.  Body proportions show promise and adequate bone, outer coat is good but under coat has no density.  3.  TREASURE’S INFINDIGO RIEMU EMMI.

PUPPY BITCH (6, 6)

Poor class.  1.  BROWN’S LECIBSIN SAMETTI.  2.  HEATH’S ELBERETH LEENA AT CANNYYATTON.  11 months with feminine head and expression.  Body well balanced but lacks sufficient bone.  Correct low hocks and good coat for age.  3.  TREASURE’S INFINDIGO RIEMU EMMI.

JUNIOR BITCH (3, 3)

1. WILLIAMS’ IVYDALE MIELIKKI.  Quality bitch of super breed type.  She has a typical feminine head of excellent proportions with soft expression.  She is well within breed standard height and presents a totally balanced body.  Front leg length is correct in relation to height, rear quarters are correctly angulated too with short hocks.  Her profuse coat is correct, harsh outer with dense undercoat, and this gives the appearance of a shorter back which is an illusion.  This bitch has correct length of body to height ratio.  Complimenting the overall appearance is excellent bone and strongly built body.  Moved well and true as desired.  2.  HEATH’S ELBERETH LEENA AT CANNYYATTON.  3.  HEAD’S MILLERMEAD QUARTZ CRYSTAL.

NOVICE BITCH (1, 1)

1.  HEATH’S ELBERETH LEENA AT CANNYYATTON.

POST GRADUATE BITCH (8, 8)

1.  SHORT’S GLENCHESS ANNIKKA.  Quality type with true breed movement.  Excellent head proportions, good ear set and feminine soft expression.  Excellent front and rear quarters, correctly proportioned body with correct height to length ratio.  Well boned throughout.  Correct harsh outer coat with dense undercoat. RBB.  2.  BLAIR’S BLAIRSWOLF SIMA-SUU.  Another quality bitch with good head proportions although stop should be more defined.  Good body height in ratio to leg length and body length.  Would benefit from carrying more weight to give better substance throughout.  Good quality coat.  Moved very well.  3.  WILLIAMS IVYDALE TELLERVO

LIMIT BITCH (5, 4)

1.  ALLISON’S OBERITZ SILMANILO.  This is what a quality typey bitch in excellent coat should be in general appearance.  She has a superb correct well balanced head and ear shape and set, and has the soft friendly expression that so typifies the breed.  Strong body with correct bone of substance, excellent neck, correct front and rear quarters, correct length of foreleg and proportionate to body depth.  Powerful rear legs with correct short hocks.  Body is of correct length to height ratio.  Moved freely and true.  BOS.  2.  WILLIAM’S IVYDALE AAMUTAHTI.  Another quality bitch so very similar in type to winner that the same comments apply.  The only difference being, this exhibit carries too much weight which affects her movement.  3.  BLAIR’S BLAIRSWOLF TELLERVO.

OPEN BITCH (6, 6)

1.  ALLISON’S OBERITZ MARIMEKKO.  Excellent general appearance and type with good head proportions and expression.  Excellent quality outer coat.  Correct strong well boned body, correctly assembled front and rear quarters with short hock. 2.  BRADLEY’S BLAIRSWOLF TULIKKI OF RUDDYDUCK.  This is a sensational bitch of the highest quality and type.  She has the most beautiful proportioned head and soft expression, possibly the best I have ever seen including in Finland.  Her construction is virtually faultless as is her movement.  All body angles and proportions are correct.  However, today she was lacking under coat and that is why I placed her 2nd.  She fully deserves her international show wins to date and I predict she will be awarded many more international CACIS’s if regularly campaigned.  3.  HEAD’S IR CH MILLERMEAD NORDIC BREEZE SHCM.

KC GOOD CITIZENS BITCH (3, 2)

1.  ALLISON’S OBERITZ RILLUMAREI.  This breeder should be congratulated for her consistency of excellent breed type.  Here is a bitch of excellent general appearance and type with very good head definition and expression.  Correct confirmation with strong body and bone, correct short hocks.  Good quality coat, profuse and dense.  Moved well.  2.  ALLEN’S GLENCHESS MUSTA SAMETTTI.  General appearance suffers from the too narrow skull and lack of stop. Has good coat and body is quite well balanced.

FLCGB 2nd Championship Show

Thanks to the FLCGB for inviting me to judge in this wonderful venue.  Mention must be made of the ring steward who managed to keep me in order and ensure the smooth running of the show.

I was pleased with the entry but not overly pleased with the quality of some of the dogs.  Size and shortness of legs are the main faults as well as too many dogs with incorrect eye shape.  Some dogs had overly large ears and some dogs had better movement from the rear than others.

In the main the dogs were very sound and well built with some very typical of the breed but I would not recommend that all of those shown be bred from.

FLCGB 6th Open Show

I would like to thank the committee for the invitation, and the gift.

We seem to have 2 variations of ‘type’ in our breed, and I judged accordingly.

Not a good time of the year for coats, majority of exhibits were out of coat or just coming back into coat.  I found 1 level bite, 1 overshot bite, and one bite with misaligned incisors.

I did split hairs in some classes, particularly in limit bitch.  The first 3 bitches in this class were all excellent, and could changes places on another day.

Excellent for type, temperament, bone.  Smaller than medium size.  Excellent head with small erect mobile ears.  Eyes harmonizing with coat colour.  Her neck does look short due to a very thick ruff.  Excellent body proportions.  Very good front and hind angulation.  One of the few dogs that had short, strong back pasterns.  Tail  set and carriage correct.  Correct movement from all sides.  Very well handled and presented.  Won over the Best Dog, as I felt in my opinion that she was closest to the standard.  Therefore very pleased to award her Best In Show.  Many congratulations.

Kennel Club Allocates Championship Status 2011/2012 to Finnish Lapphunds

We are delighted with the news that the Finnish Lapphund has been awarded Championship Status by the Kennel Club, with effect from 2011. Six full sets of Championship Certificates and two singles will be on offer at the following shows:

Full set of Challenge Certificates:

  • Crufts (March)

  • Finnish Lapphund Club of Great Britain (April)

  • Birmingham National (May)

  • Scottish Kennel Club (May),

  • National Working & Pastoral Breeds Dog Society (July)

  • Welsh Kennel Club (August)

Single Challenge Certificates:

  • Southern Counties CA (June)

  • Richmond DSS (September)

This is yet another important milestone in the breed and club’s history in the UK, the culmination of focused involvement by a relatively small group of dedicated enthusiasts:

  • The First Finnish Lapphund was imported into the UK in 1989 in whelp – SF MVA Lecibsin Hissukka.

  • Import Register Status was initially granted by the KC – restricting the breed to showing in Matches, Exemption Shows and Import Register Classes only.

  • The Finnish Lapphund Club of Great Britain was founded in May 1994, with the purpose of protecting and furthering the interest of the breed in the UK.

  • November 1995, saw the Club provisionally recognised by the UK Kennel Club.

  • Rare Breed Status was granted in April 2002, seeing Finnish Lapphund classes scheduled at all levels of breed shows.

Along the way, there have been many people involved in the introduction and progression of the breed’s development in the UK. Our thanks go to all those who have helped us achieve our current status for their support and guidance. Particular mention must go to Sue and Roger Dunger of the Sulyka Kennels UK, who were responsible for the first stock being imported into the UK from the Lecibsin Kennels in Finland. Also to the many Kennels in Finland who have kindly allowed their stock to leave its native country to increase and enhance our gene pool – without them the Finnish Lapphund would not be where it is today in the UK.

Thanks to everyone for helping us to achieve this momentous milestone.
