Show Information

This breed has Kennel Club Challenge Certificates at most Championship Shows.

In the UK presentation of the top-knot differs from Europe, and the shaving of the anal area, and the underside of the root of the tail, arguably in the interest of hygiene. Also the fashon of 'lightning the wieght off tails' which otherwise might be carried too low or flat. Trimmimg the feet is also practiced here.
