Conformation Classes Judge: Mrs. Monica Henderson Stoner

I cannot thank WVSC enough for a wonderful day in Oregon.
What a lovely entry of diverse Salukis, and a great bunch of friendly, supportive Saluki
people. A few comments: As much as possible I like to see Salukis moving slower than usual, on a loose lead so I can evaluate their movement without interference. Most of the time they move better swhen not rushing around the ring. A few fell apart without the leash support, which is the other reason to train (and judge) on a looser lead. Be careful overhandling your Saluki. One entry went from extremely promising to what happened when over stretched and fussed with. Most of the time a mature Saluki in good condition knows what’s most comfortable for them standing and that generally looks best for them.
Thanks again for the opportunity!
