Did You Know… Today’s New Breed Judges Have Many Challenges Getting Approved

F Did You Know

In this fast-paced, high-tech world, sometimes we’re zooming so fast we miss seeing everything right under our noses! Any long-time, successful breeder can tell you it takes years to build a foundation from which to breed. The “Powers That Be” understand that and ask for a minimum amount of time required as part of the Judging Application Process as a Breeder /Judge–“X” number of litters and “X” number of Champions bred. Those numbers are mandatory for the first-time applicant applying under the “Breeder/Judge” criteria. Those who apply as a “Breeder/Judge” seldom (if ever) disappoint in preparedness by virtue of “time served” in the whelping box and show ring.

Table Talk · April 17, 2024


I mentioned last week that I was attending the Labrador Retriever Club of the Potomac. I frankly did not know what to expect and from the moment I arrived I was in awe! The LRCP did a special mentoring session for approved Labrador Judges which was well-attended and enjoyed by all the participants. Desi Murphy said, “The Specials had the most depth of quality I’ve ever witnessed!!” What an amazing opportunity to talk dogs with some of the breed’s experts and witness a depth of quality that is second to none! If you have not had the opportunity, please be sure to check out some of the Table Talk segments from Potomac week. I had the opportunity to visit with some winners, judges, and hard-working Potomac volunteers! Most importantly, I’d like to give kudos to a community of people that is supportive of each other and kind to all! Thank you to everyone who made me feel welcome and made my week enjoyable–and productive! If you have not had the opportunity to attend the Potomac, I strongly encourage you to add it to your bucket list.

The Scottish Deerhound: Form And [Illegal] Function

F Scottish Deerhound

If a breed’s original function is illegal, as a preservation breeder, breed judge, or judge’s mentor, how can you understand and evaluate how form follows function? This dichotomy has to be addressed in many breeds, including the Scottish Deerhound. For some, it may mean function is now irrelevant; who cares? This would ignore, however, the American Kennel Club’s (“AKC”) mission of “promoting the sport of purebred dogs and breeding for type and function” and a breed standard’s purpose, as described by Frank Kane, member of the Kennel Club’s (“KC” (UK)) Breed Standards and Stud Book sub-committee, which is to serve as “the guideline which describes the ideal characteristics, temperament and appearance … and ensures that the breed is fit for function.”
