Breed Priorities – The Golden Retriever

F BP Golden Retriever

The Golden Retriever is and has been one of the most popular breeds in the United States for years. Originating in Scotland in the second half of the nineteenth century on the estate of Lord Tweedmouth, the Golden was developed as and is a gundog used in hunting birds. But the breed is physically and temperamentally willing to successfully work as a service dog, search and rescue dog, performance competitor in many venues, and perhaps most of all as a beloved family member.

The Clumber Spaniel – Defying The Odds

F The Clumber Spaniel

The great thing about purebreds is their infinite variety. This has nothing to do with capricious whims. It’s all about fine-tuning a genetic formula for that ultimate combination of utility and beauty. It’s a tall order, but it’s led to the creation of over 400 breeds. Some, like Cockers and Labs have earned broad, lasting appeal. They will always have fans. Then there’s the Clumber. Also a Sporting dog and a spaniel, it is unlikely that we will ever witness the Clumber scaling the heights of top ten popularity.

Back To Basics – Fundamentals Before Flash

F Back to Basics

Whenever I have free time at shows, I watch juniors. I love watching the new talent and how they interact with their dogs and peers. I love seeing their days made by pink ribbons and kind words. As I watch, however, I have noticed a shift from fundamentals to flash. While some are showing true to their breed standard, others are showing as “flashy” as possible–and being rewarded in junior showmanship.

F Arvindology

Many in our sport complain about how dog shows today don’t compare to days gone by. I am grateful. I feel that with evolution comes change and with change comes a new perspective. Not all change is positive nor welcome, but then we have amazing advances and growth driven by necessity. Nothing stays the same, so to lament the loss of the past only paralyzes us and stifles our ability to evolve. The time for complaints has passed and the time for solutions is upon us.

The Power Of “They Say”

F They Say

Imagine, if you will, a beautiful winter morning. A bright blue sky, no wind, the show grounds a freshly mown dormant field fanning out in front of you, rings decorated with straw bales and colorful faux flowers. The rising sun hasn’t chased the heavy frost off the fields yet, and its rays are bright and not warm at all. The temperature is 31 degrees Fahrenheit. Most of the people are bundled up, huddled around the portable propane heaters stationed under the tenting.

F Estate Planning Tips

A great many people choose not to dwell on their mortality and even put off writing a will as long as they can, but we can do our dogs a favor by planning ahead for what should happen to them when we are gone.

A Penny For Your Thoughts, Rover

F A Penny for your thoughts Rover

Have you ever wondered what it means when Fido cocks his head one way and then another when you talk to him? Is he performing some response he has learned to give when you say something to him or is he hearing a bunch of meaningless sounds and doing something he has found that makes you happy? Is he actually hanging on every word or just trying to convince you to come and play with him? Is he really just a dumb animal making random gestures hoping to please you or does he put two and two together, assess his options and decide on a plan of action? In other words, can dogs actually think?

Meet The Breeds Returns

F Meet the Breeds Returns

Like countless other AKC projects, Meet the Breeds is best described as an ongoing experiment in customer relations. Modeled on the incredibly successful British version, Discover Dogs, AKC dabbled with various translations of the concept for years. Their earliest forays into direct marketing featured no actual event planning. AKC called a bunch of NYC locals and asked them to bring their dogs to Madison Square Park, which was conveniently situated right across the street from their old downtown headquarters. Those early events were tiny and highly disorganized. However, in terms of test marketing, they succeeded beyond all expectations. Word got around, and by the second year, vendors, sponsors, and doggy entertainment acts spiced up the roster. Every September, that minuscule sliver of NYC green space was overrun with local dog lovers. Like all great ideas, it was unstoppable.
