Young Talent Shines in Thailand, plus a Petition for RBIS Points

This past weekend found DFR Blogger Kayla Bertagnolli at four shows in Thailand where she met two talented young competitors. The Kennel Club of Thailand wants to encourage young people to participate in its activities, and Kayla’s visit is helping to spread the word. Meet a pair of young exhibitors with a passion for dogs and a bright future in the show ring.

Blogger-in-Chief Billy Wheeler wrote last year that it would take some points to make the new AKC Reserve Best in Show award really mean something. Many in the fancy agree, and now an online petition is seeking signatures to present to the AKC Board of Directors requesting just that. See what’s afoot as the anniversary of the RBIS approaches this summer.

Best In Show Daily invites you to participate in our latest online poll. Each week we’re asking readers to share their opinions on a topic of interest to breeders, exhibitors and dog lovers everywhere. This week we’d like to know what you think is the most important part of the judging at an all-breed dog show. To participate in our poll, go directly to the right-hand column of our home page at Let us know what you think!
