Best In Show Daily’s podcast with Bill Shelton was an undeniable hit with our audience. When Bill talks about dogs, dog shows and the sport we all love, people listen. The master breeder of Coventry Pembroke Welsh Corgis sat down with Social Media Maven Pilar Kuhn to offer his opinion on a wide variety of topics including the proliferation of dog shows and how a carefully considered judging panel can improve entries at clustered events. We invite all of our readers, old and new, to listen in to a man who inspires so many exhibitors, fellow breeders and judges.
