I was happy to have such a lovely entry of Canaans. Although there are still variations in type, I find the breed much more unified in type than the last time I saw them here in England, and improving in quality. Some of the dogs were really excellent and could compete anywhere. There is an improvement in topline and movement. Temperaments are also overall much improved, though a number of the dogs would benefit from more ring experience and better handling. I hope the breeders here continue in this direction.
