Alistair Parker writes:

It was a great honour to be invited to judge the Beagles in Dortmund and having not previously judged in Europe, it was a tremendous learning opportunity. Assessing and critiquing each exhibit makes the judge consider each one on its own merit. Under the continental system the judge has to test and challenge their own preconceptions all the time, and I think I learned a great deal, which I hope I can use to improve my own judging back in the UK. The VDH were, of course, outstanding hosts and went out of their way to make everybody welcome with every detail attended to throughout the show.

I thought the system of prejudging the various groups excellent as it kept the events moving at a sensible pace and adds to the theatre of the event for the spectators. A great show and a great experience.
