Dear Dogster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Dogster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Dogster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Dogster magazine, and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.


Judge's opinion on my Kelpie's conformation?

Amy DowellAmy Dowell North ShieldsPosts: 9Member
I don't show nor is my Kelpie show bred (she's bred for sheep work), but I'm curious to know how a conformation show judge would judge her. I'd like to know what faults they would give her and what they like about her. I'm open to all criticism as I'm just curious to see. Sorry, the photos aren't ideal :)

    It'd vary from judge to judge--the breed standard gives basic guidlines and some things are up to individual interpretation. Some judges may place more importance on one trait over another, too. I was able to get my GSD critiqued on conformation on a German Shepherd-specific forum on another site, so I'd suggest looking up an active Kelpie-specific forum.
