But I Don't Need A Show Dog

A very interesting read.......the importance of a good breeder! Although it is talking about Newfoundlands, it is also true for Havs!

I enjoyed this article, Joyce. Because of my near havanese mania, I have been considering what it would be like to be a breeder and am meeting one and her handler at a dog show in Atlanta mid-month.

I took one of the free courses the AKC offers for breeder, and failed all three of the questions at the end. I chose "the head" in the conformation section because both my havs have such different heads, one round as a baseball and one with more flat planes.

As having once been the child in class who drew the prettiest pictures and made "D's" in science courses (my daughter graduated cum laude in biology and my sister is an ivy league educated neuro scientist so genetics really are tricky LOL) I am at present seeing myself more suited to being an enthusiastic observer at dog shows.

A great deal goes into being an animal breeder.
