The Poodle Club of America and Being Home Alone

“Whether you’re a Poodle fancier or just an admirer of purebred dogs, Poodle Club of America is a unique and interesting event in the dog show world, and worth experiencing at least once.” So writes Senior Editor Christi McDonald in her report of the club’s 80th National Specialty, held again this year on the eastern shore of Maryland. Discover why many consider this event to be the “Greatest Show on Earth” and why fanciers of other breeds attend PCA year after glorious year.

What do you do when the family goes out of town and you’re left behind to care for a kennel of dogs? Kayla Bertagnolli explains in today’s DFR that when she found herself home alone recently, she had more than enough to keep her busy. Find out what she did to help out around the house and how a little “me time” can provide insight into what is important.

This weekend, Kayla will be at the Salt Lake County Equestrian Park in South Jordan, Utah, for the Beehive Cluster’s four all-breed shows. If you’re entered in conformation, obedience or rally at Utah Valley Kennel Club and Intermountain Kennel Club, be sure to say, “Hello.”

The Greatest Poodle Show on Earth
By Christi McDonald

For many years, Poodle Club of America members, and indeed most Poodle fanciers, have thought of our National Specialty as “The Greatest Poodle Show on Earth.” We can even be accused of calling it the “Greatest Show on Earth,” and people from other breeds that come each year to watch PCA might agree. It is a one-of-a-kind show, and while it may not be the “greatest” to all dog folk, it does, like the dogs who are shown there, have about it an “air of distinction peculiar” to itself.

Poodles are, of course, a breed with a long, rich history. The breed has traditionally had more than its share of big winners in the all-breed arena. more

Home Alone with the Pack
By Kayla Bertagnolli
For the majority of us in the dog show community, vacations are virtually impossible to schedule. Impossible, that is, unless we have staff or friends who can lend a hand with our doggies while we’re away.

This past week my family went to California for my sister’s college graduation. (YAY!) Of course, one of us had to stay behind to care for the dogs, and for the first time, that one person was me.

Normally it’s my dad who’s in charge while my mom and I are away at a show. more
