The Papillon Club of So Ca held a Puppy Puzzle seminar at the Bahia Corinthian Yacht Club.
The weather was perfect and the seminar was fabulous!!
Char and I were lucky enough to each have a litter that was the right age to be evaluated for the seminar. So I brought the collie pups and Char brought the poodle pups. The pups were EXHAUSTED after the evaluation.
Pat Hastings evaluated our litters the night before. It was a wonderful experience and I learned quite a bit. I wish I had the two roughs from the litter here!
Pat covered tons of things in the seminar and I recommend it to anybody that is serious about breeding.
She has a new book coming out that is geared more towards the performance dog. I can't wait to go to that seminar!!!
I hear agility people say i don't want a show dog I just want a pet….. That is soooooooooooooooooo wrong!!! performance people NEED the VERY best dogs they can get their hands on!!! SOUND mind and SOUND body!!! It is unfair to ask a dog to perform when its body can not do the things required without pain, discomfort or breaking down ….
The same to you breeders out there. Quit giving your crap dogs to performance homes!!!! It's not right!!! Performance dogs are athletes and if is not sound enough to breed or trot around in a circle in the conformation ring what makes you think it can do agility or hunting or herding????? It just drives me CRAZY!!!!!
She just takes my breathe away!!!
