Participating in dog shows allows you to obtain the knowledgeable opinion of a third party, which serves as validation of your breeding program.
The goal of a breeding program is to achieve the most ideal representative of a breed, both in terms of temperament and physical characteristics.
Although all dogs are wonderful creatures, purebred dogs have been developed and bred to have particular qualities, capabilities, and physical characteristics so that they can carry out a specialized role, such as retrieving waterfowl or herding sheep. While all dogs are marvellous, purebred dogs are better able to do their jobs.
This practice is known as breeding for function and “type,” where “type” refers to the disposition and physical shape required for a breed to successfully carry out its role. A written “standard” that is also registered with the AKC by a parent breed club—like the Dalmatian Club of America or the Norwegian Elkhound Association of America, for example—defines the function of each breed as well as the “ideal” type of dog for that breed. At a show, the best dogs are those who come the closest to meeting the requirements set forth by their breed standard.
We are working hard to breed a strong, healthy dog that will make a wonderful friend for many years to come.
Although not every dog has the potential to be a show dog, every dog can be a pet..
Attending a dog show is one of the greatest locations to start obtaining information if you are interested in acquiring a purebred dog or exhibiting one in a competition.
Exciting opportunities to strengthen your bond with your canine companion can be found in the process of preparing for and competing in dog shows.
The activity of displaying dogs incurs costs, which might include entry fees, supplies, and equipment, and there is also a cost to participate in the activity. Diesel gasoline is the biggest expense. There are specialized trucks in our fleet that can accommodate crates. There is also the expense of staying in a hotel or a motel. In addition, the cost of the dog food is far higher than that of the food that is typically given to the pet when it is not being shown.
The majority of our time is taken up by the care that we have to give his show dogs, which includes giving them proper nourishment, a clean environment to live in, high-quality veterinary care, and regular grooming.
