A Landmark Decision, plus the ‘Century Club’

Senior Editor Christi McDonald reports on a landmark court decision that sets a legal precedent for purebred dog breeders. When two Pennsylvania women were awarded compensation in October last year for the loss of frozen semen samples, the importance of their stud dogs became quantifiable. Learn how a jury was tasked with assessing the value of offspring from two significant Standard Poodle sires.

An all-breed Best in Show is a challenge to which many exhibitors no doubt aspire in 2013. Achieving the goal may be a once-in-a-lifetime dream come true for some, although many dogs will earn scores of top awards this year, some even capturing their 100th Best. Find out about the odds of becoming a member of the sport’s exclusive “Century Club.”
