Championship Show Wins :

Dog CC- Southern Border Terrier Club 2012
Rich red Border with the best of heads, good reach of neck, level topline, good tail well set, narrow straight front, correct coat and pelt, moves well both ways. Should be looking over his shoulder as his grandson is approaching fast.

Dog CC - Birmingham National 2011
Wonderful masculine head, with dark eye, strong muzzle, big teeth, good bite. Thick pelt with double jacket, underneath which is a very typical honest type of border and this dog can really move, he drove from behind with purpose and covered the ground easily.

Dog CC - Southern Counties 2010
I like him a lot, Nice all over red dog attractive otter head with good expression, very good coat. Real nice mover. A pleasure to give him my first CC.

Dog CC - Scottish BT Ch 2009
Good size of dog, in full double coat, under all that coat I found a well put together body, narrow throughout, plenty of bone and tidy feet, strong head, keen expression, moved well.

Dog CC - SWKA 2009
My first thoughts a good, honest border, not flashy but workmanlike, big strong teeth, well placed ears, good shoulders, harsh weather resistant coat, easily spanned, good set on, moved true both ways. Pleased to give him the CC.
Dog CC - Blackpool 2009
Stood out in such a strong class for his type and quality, presented on top form. Attractive head and expression with strong neck into a cleanly defined wither with a super topline and an equally good underline with a length of body, well ribbed back and strong loin. Balanced well angulated quarters with a particularly good layback of shoulder and length in upper arm and racy hindquarters with a good bend of stifle and well placed hocks, standing on good legs and feet. Excelled in movement which can be attributed to his sound and balanced construction. Moved out with an economical free easy stride, with plenty of forward reach and drive, holding his topline on the move. Tracked most precisely. Pleasing in outline with nothing overdone and presented in superb fettle. Delighted to award him his first CC.
reserve CC - Boston 2009
in superb condition, fit, well muscled & matching the Standard in most departments, typical workmanlike Border from this kennel & a worthy winner of a strong class. Res CC
reserve CC - Birmingham Nat 2009
very typy dog, excellent head & kind expression, up to size, beautifully balanced, moved very well & sound. Needed more coat to finish the picture, close up. RCC
reserve CC - LKA 2009
Another workmanlike dog that has always caught my eye, great expression, otterhead, big teeth and so very typical of the breed. Good shoulder and front and moved with drive. It was a hard decision between 1 and 2,
