Good example of the breed also, but is lacking in his coming and going, would like to see a little better topline and rear angulation, however has a very nice head, good bone.

Open Dog

Mr Hubbell combined his critique between the first, second & third place dogs.

The expressions on the 3 dogs is very nice, the bone is good in all the examples, the front structure on the 1st & 2nd are superior to the 3rd, the rear angulation is also superior on the 1st & 2nd to the 3rd. The movement on the 1st was the best.
