Best of Canada and Australia, plus Shows Closing March 20, 2013

Senior Editor Bo Bengtson takes a look at the top dogs in two countries with which American fanciers have a certain kinship. Canadians and Australians share a long tradition of breeding top quality dogs, including several breeds native to our neighbor to the north and to our Aussie friends. Meet the Cocker Spaniel that aced the competition last year in the Great White North, and the dandy Dalmatian that was spotted by so many judges “Down Under” in 2012.

Quite a few show entries close next week, including the Yosemite Kennel Club in Merced, Calif., where the club is offering a special incentive to encourage exhibitors to enter their class dogs. Best of Winners will receive a special prize in those breeds that draw a major entry, and all who attend can enjoy a sheriff’s canine demonstration and a lure coursing demo too. Find out all the details from Senior Editor Christi McDonald, and learn what the Sunflower Cluster has planned for visitors to its all-breed shows held at the Kansas Pavilions in Valley Center, Kan.

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.

The Yosemite Kennel Club will host back-to-back all-breed shows April 6 and 7 at the county fairgrounds in Merced, Calif. The club is offering “Money for Majors,” a unique idea for encouraging exhibitors to enter in the classes. more

The World’s Top Dogs: Cocker in Canada, Dalmatian Down Under
By Bo Bengtson

So close, yet so far. So far, yet so similar. That would sum up, very briefly, what we dog people in America know about what’s going on north of the border, and what we don’t know about dog shows Down Under, respectively.

The idea of showing purebred dogs in conformation, as everyone knows, started in Great Britain 150 years ago, in the days when that small island wielded an enormous influence over large parts of the globe. more
