Went to Crufts today and watched Heelwork, Flyball and the BC show classes.
I thought it was scary the way that the working dogs were so different to the show dogs. The former were leaner and eager (and noisy), the latter seemed heavier, shorter noses, little muscle definition (even allowing for fluffed up coats) and nervy (and 99% black/white)
I may be over reacting but the divergence seemed dramatic.
Has anyone else noticed this and is it important?
