AKC Companion Event Extravaganza, plus Balancing Show Career and Parenthood

Editor Susan Chaney reports on the inaugural American Kennel Club Companion Events Extravaganza held earlier this month at the Expo Square in Tulsa, Okla. Nearly 1,700 dogs competed in obedience, agility and rally in one venue, and organizers are pleased with the first event of its kind for the AKC. Find a list of the top 10 scorers in the first ever AKC Rally National Competition’s four divisions.

Balancing a high-energy show career with producing the next generation of happy, healthy purebreds is a conundrum that many serious breeders must face. Two or three years spent on the road can leave a dog with little time for romance, but breeding programs – like shows – must go on. Blogger-In-Chief Billy Wheeler provides a few examples of dogs that have passed along their good genes even as they received the show ring’s highest accolades.

Be sure to check out our photo galleries, where you’ll find recent winners and candid photos from shows held near and far. Just click on Show Scene below the masthead banner, or select any of the images in the left-hand column of our home page.
