AKC Junior Scholarship Recipients, plus Keep ‘Em Coming Back

The American Kennel Club awards scholarships each year to qualified junior handlers who wish to further their college education. Juniors are encouraged to submit their current school transcripts together with an essay about their experiences in the dog sport. Meet the class of 2012, and find out how to be considered for a spot in this year’s honor roll.

Blogger-in-Chief Billy Wheeler examines how clubs might increase the size of their show’s entries by encouraging the fancy to return next year. Every show chair likes to see an increase in the number of dogs competing, but how do you entice exhibitors to return year after year? Billy takes a look today at what it takes to keep ‘em coming back.

Best In Show Daily invites you to participate in our latest online poll. Each week we’re asking readers to share their opinions on a topic of interest to breeders, exhibitors and dog lovers everywhere. This week we’d like to know the extent to which you crate your dogs. To participate in our poll, go directly to the right-hand column of our home page at Let us know what you think!

Keep ‘Em Coming Back
By Billy Wheeler

Every week I get e-mails and phone calls complaining about how the dog show game is “going to Hell in a hand basket.” Like all of life, our sport has its share of doomsday prophets, but I think it is fair to say that conformation dog shows have had some setbacks. While this slide has been gradual what concerns me are the more recent changes. Entries at this year’s shows are, on the average, down 19 percent from last year. more
