Where Have All The Mentors Gone?

F Where have mentors gone

How often do you read The Canine Chronicle editorials? These aren’t just space savers in the magazine. Often they are steeped in the history of our sport, and you are doing yourself a great injustice if you don’t read them. Every month I read one or two editorials that make me wonder, where have all the mentors gone? You know, the great ones–the breeders, judges, and handlers that have done it all. The people that would give you, like it or not, unsolicited advice in the ring, or while you were grooming your dog. The ones with no filter. The ones that made you shake in your shoes. If you did something wrong, they would say, “Hey, what are you doing? You know better than that!” and explain to you why it’s wrong and what to change. If you got it right, they would give you a compliment, but usually in a much more subtle way.

From The Publisher


Ihad a conversation with a good friend I greatly respect when it comes to knowledge of dogs.

F The Great Ones

Have you ever stood at ringside and felt the hair on your arms stand on end as you watched an unknown dog move around the ring? Has a certain dog literally taken your breath away, as its superb breed type oozed from its every pore while gaiting past you? Have you ever watched a dog and felt the present slip away, replaced by the very history of its breed–so effortlessly illustrated in both body and soul?

Mixed Breeds In The Wild


Mating mistakes may just have a valid place in the canine universe. We have all heard those unicorn tales about the accidental breeding that produced the showstopper, and yeah, mainly they are on par with flying horses. But a recent bit of revelatory DNA investigation seems to lend a bit of legitimacy to that beloved myth.
Officially, the red wolf has been considered extinct in the wild since 1980.

Corky Vroom – Never Give Up

Ben Brown & Corky Vroom

It all began with a 10 year-old boy practicing handling techniques in his family’s yard after school. Most junior handlers probably would have focused on their own skills – taking even strides, mastering the smooth transfer of the lead from hand to hand. For Charles “Corky” Vroom, the practice sessions had a deeper purpose. He wanted to understand the dogs – their structure, how they moved, and how their minds worked.
