September 4th to the 6th saw the GSP Club of SA host the 11th Australian Breed National Specialty, and received a wonderful 152 breed class entries, and 40 property class entries in the Conformation Event.
For the third time, a Woodwych bred dog won Best Exhibit In Show, and for the second time Woodwych dogs took out both Challenges - a feat that has not been done before.
Officiating the Conformation Show was Dr Zlatko Jojkic of Avaline GSPs (Serbia) who, despite the trying weather, appeared to enjoy his judging appointment - his first in Australia!
All Woodwych dogs received 'Excellent' gradings, and fantastic critiques. It is always humbling to receive the highest awards from breeder / exhibitor judges, who have had much success with their own dogs and breeding in their own countries.
