TITLE: What details do you look at (consider/observe) when judging a Malamute.

Paul Stanton - SWEDENBIOGRAPHY: My name is Paul Stanton

I am an Englishman who has been living in Sweden for the past thirty four years.

My main breeds are the Tibetan breeds where I owned or bred 10 UK Ch.s before moving to Sweden & continued breeding & showing Lhasas & Tibetan Terriers with many All Breed BIS wins & Top Dog All breeds in Sweden, Finland & Nordic competitions with a Tibetan Terrier in 1979. I have also owned & bred a few litters of Whippets with success.

I started judging in the UK in 1975 awarding CC.s in Lhasas & TT.s and continued my judging career in Sweden becoming All Breeds judge in 1996.

I have a big interest in Group 5 especially the Polar Spitzes and have judged Malamutes in many countries in Europe & Canada and when entered in many Asian countries (small numbers).

I now own my first Spitz breed, the newly recognized Thai Bangkaew Dog which is not like the Japanese Spitz breeds but much more like the Nordic Spitzes!

I look forward very much in participating in this interesting feature on Malamutes.
