The Essentials

Best In Show Daily, the essential online publication for serious dog lovers, offers a couple of suggestions today to help you get organized and protect your dogs from illness. In “Prep Your Tack Box with Care,” we look inside that aluminum box to find more than just combs, collars and coat conditioner. It’s best to have on hand a number of crucial items in case of emergencies. And in The Down and Back, Pilar Kuhn asks the question, “To vaccinate or not to vaccinate?” The choice is, essentially, between you and your vet.

Photos Yesterday, Sponsorship Today

Today’s newsletter is sponsored by the Bichon Frisé, BIS/BISS GCH PaRay’s Power & Privilege, “Dominick.” I met co-owners Laura Rosio and Paul Flores ringside at the Santa Clara Valley Kennel Club dog show on Sunday as Dominick was preparing to compete for Best in Show. I very much enjoyed the company of all three, and they relayed how much they appreciated the immediacy and quality that our publication is bringing to the Dog Show world. Yesterday, they decided to sponsor today’s newsletter. They got us the photos last night, and you can see the results today in the newsletter. Click on Dominick’s ad to visit his comprehensive microsite. If you’d like to sponsor our newsletter, you can email us at sales@bestinshowdaily.com. Perhaps tomorrow your dog can be right where Dominick is today.

Best regards,

Prep Your Tack Box with Care for Peace of Mind

By Dan Sayers

The tack box is an indispensable tool for anyone who shows dogs. This portable storage unit is designed to accommodate an arsenal of supplies and is lightweight enough to travel just about anywhere. Aluminum models seem to be most popular and offer features that help to keep busy exhibitors organized and ready for ring time.

A good tack box will be large enough to hold the essentials, yet not so large that it becomes cumbersome. Standard features will include a heavy duty handle, a lid with a hold-open hinge, a leash bar, separate trays for things like brushes, combs and collars, and a compartment for tall spray cans and bottles. A front that opens wide keeps every item within reach. more

Your Dog’s Vaccination Protocol
By Pilar Kuhn

To vaccinate or not to vaccinate, is that really the question? There is no denying that puppy vaccinations are critical in helping young dogs develop the immunity to be active participants in our daily lives. Just as with parents questioning vaccinations for their children, more dog owners are questioning whether they should renew vaccinations, let alone vaccinate for some diseases the first time.

I wrote a blog not too long ago about the vets we choose because they understand where we’re coming from and what we want for our dogs. (Click here to read it.) I don’t know of a breeder or vet who doesn’t believe in giving initial vaccinations to puppies. If we send puppies home between 8 and 10 weeks of age, there is usually one more series of shots the new owners should take care of. more
