AKC-Canine-Chronicle-Judge-

In the immediately preceding issue of this magazine, the subject of breed standards and their central purpose was revisited and broached from various perspectives.

Varying Focus

GMJ_52012

In the not-too-distant past I had occasion to discuss a certain pedigreed-dog breeding program with a very good friend of mine who has been involved with her breed for more years than she probably cares to remember. In this endeavor she has been highly successful and, over time, has managed to establish a lineage of some distinction and prominence.

Is Blood Really Thicker Than Water?

1_pg template_feature

In some ways, we live in a great time to be breeding dogs. Genome projects in both humans and dogs have yielded information about genetic disease and inheritability of traits that have improved our ability to make better breeding decisions and produce dogs more precisely tailored to our preferences.

Visions, Passions and Purposes.

GMJtitle_ANNUAL2012

There has, in recent times, been concern expressed about the direction which the sport of pedigreed dogs is currently taking, with a seemingly shifting emphasis and focus occurring away from the pursuit of meaningful breeding practices. A rather oddly rhetorical, and in some ways slightly nonsensical, question has been asked as to the relative and respective importance of judging versus breeding. As if the two could be divorced from one another, as if there was no connection between them. Don’t the two belong together; are they not intricately intertwined? You cannot, after all, have the one without the other and the breeding part surely has to come first. This is the anchor, which keeps the ship from drifting and ultimately ending up on the rocks. There are, of course, various layers and levels to this but the evaluation of stock going forward cannot meaningfully occur in the absence of purposeful and successful breeding. If the latter falters the whole sport will inevitably come apart, for its very essence, the development, perfection and preservation of breeds, is betrayed. Our dogs will seriously suffer as a consequence.
