Perfect Puppy Match, plus the Intersection of Form, Function and Hallmarks
Puppies and fun matches are kind of like peanut butter and jelly; they just go together. But such matches are harder and harder to find, and Editor in Chief Dan Sayers misses them. He very nearly pines for the days when most shows included fun matches, not just for puppy owners, but for juniors and handlers of adult dogs as well. For inspiration and info to help your club host some fun matches, check out “A Perfect Match – Puppies and New Exhibitors.”

Today we welcome a new contributor whose article, “Form, Function, Hallmarks: What Is the Connection?” first appeared in Dog News Australia, a publication unrelated to our partner, Dog News in Britain. A judge for more than four decades, Keven Harris delves into the three pillars of good breeding that result in conformation to the standard. We think you’ll enjoy our mate from Down Under’s take on a topic that never seems to grow old.

Best In Show Daily invites you to share your knowledge and experience with our readers – among the most active participants in the dog game. If you’ve written an article you’d like to see published on Best In Show Daily or would like to pen one, please email info@bestinshowdaily.

By Keven Harris

Form, Function, Hallmarks. A very long history surrounds these three words, long before my time and that of any living fanciers of the canine species. This subject should not be taken lightly or as something new, especially when we think of breeds that can be traced back to the time of the Pharaohs and beyond. more

A Perfect Match – Puppies and New Exhibitors
By Dan Sayers

When I began showing my first dog, I would take her to handling classes at my local all-breed club. Every Thursday night, about a dozen owners would gather to work on our presentation skills while giving our puppies time to socialize with people and other dogs. more
