Showing Your Way, plus Training Explosive Detection Dogs

Not everyone who shows dogs is in a race to get to the top. Some exhibitors are happy just to enter a couple of shows each month. Today we’re taking a second look at a schedule brought to you by Billy Wheeler with the average exhibitor in mind. Find out that it’s still possible to enjoy the dog sport without stretching yourself – and your budget – too thin.

The need for dogs that can reliably detect explosive material has never been greater than in the post-9/11 era. To improve the training of these search dogs, the Office of Naval Research has provided a grant to the University of Lincoln, U.K., to investigate whether canines are capable of detecting bomb ingredients via categorization. Learn how groups of accelerants may become recognizable to the future classes of explosive detection dogs.

Best In Show Daily invites you to share your knowledge and experience with our readers – among the most active participants in the dog game. If you’ve written an article you’d like to see published on Best In Show Daily or would like to pen one, please email me at

In the early years when I had fewer responsibilities and more energy, I would show every other weekend. I had the advantage of living in New York and could get to shows easily. more
