Breeders Speak Out on Inbreeding, plus Shows Closing April 3, 2013

Senior Editor Bo Bengtson gives the breeders of this year’s Westminster and Crufts winners a chance to provide more information on breeding closely related relatives. Bo’s article on inbreeding generated an enormous response from our readers, with support for and against being nearly evenly divided. Find out what two experienced breeders have to say about their dogs’ pedigrees, and learn what Golden Retriever fanciers are doing to support research into a cure for cancer.

A few special features can transform a dog show weekend into a fun and educational activity. Senior Editor Christi McDonald has scoured the offerings at some of this spring’s show clusters, and discovered several opportunities to learn from some of the dog sport’s acknowledged experts. Find out where you can learn handling tips from the pros and get breeding advice from the one-and-only Pat Craige Trotter.

Many of this year’s top show dogs are featured in their own beautiful mini-websites on Best In Show Daily. Simply click on a banner ad to see the dog’s up-to-date show history, plus a slide show of photos that reveals exactly why it’s a top dog.
