Dave, at the end of the conference each day, after going off the air, the live audience was able to ask the panel their questions. I asked Dr. Serpell whether he had any data from the C-BARQ on whether, especially with all these small dogs who did so poorly, whether they were puppy mill dogs. He told me that the dogs identified as having been obtained from pet shops (i.e. Puppy mill dogs) did consistently worse, across measures, than the dogs from breeders. The problem is, that it would take much more research to tease out whether these behavior problems were genetic, from care of the mothers during pregnancy, from the conditions under which the puppies were raised, or whether the fact that they had been purchased by less knowledgeable people, who therefore didn't train them as well at home was causal.
And yes, the only other small breed dog that rated (almost) as well as Havanese were Cavalier King Charles... And, unfortunately, they have terrible health problems.
Rita, there is no CD, but you can become a SPARCS member, which gives you access to ALL the content from this conference and last year's as well for a full year. It's well worth it.
It was a great weekend overall, with a LOT to digest. Right now, I'm heading for BED!!!!
