The Brillo Bulletin The quarterly publication of the Suncoast German Wirehaired Pointer Club of Mid-Florida

President’s Message

It’s time for another fabulous addition of the Brillo. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I do. It’s a great way to keep up with current member news and events. Things happen fast in the Wire world.  As I type this, I am thinking about my relationship with my dogs and why it works. I have 4 dogs, 3 of which are field dogs. My house is only 1700 sq. ft and all my dogs manage to co-exist peacefully in that space. I am also pretty confident I could add 1 or 2 more without issue since my pack is very stable. As a dog trainer, I meet a lot of people who have terrible relationships with their dogs which results in a lot of instability. Sometimes this manifests as issues between owner and dog or other dogs within the house. Either way, lack of leadership/relationship is a common reason behind these problems. One area that is often overlooked is the area of “personal space”. As humans, we have an area of personal space around us that other humans respect without being told. If someone violates this rule and invades our personal space then they are often labeled as being rude. These people make us uncomfortable and we often want to move away. Yet we often allow our dogs to invade our personal space at will and expect them to respect us. So in effect we are teaching them to be rude. Dogs which greet other dogs this way are often put in their place. Yet we foster this behavior in our dogs. One thing I have done naturally with all the dogs in my life is teach them to respect my personal space. My motivation being that I do not like dogs that constantly pester for attention or jump and squirm all over me without being asked. I like to interact with my dogs when I want to and I have always used my body language to convey this message. I never really thought much about it as a valuable training tool until I came across an article by a man named Dick Russell. In his article he talked about a training concept called Yielding to improve relationships between owners and their dogs. As I read the article, I realized this concept of Yielding is what I had intuitively done with my dogs all my life. Since then I have included this type of training with my private clients who need a relationship tune-up with their dog(s). While I think there are many things that foster a healthy relationship and leadership with our dogs, I find this is one tool I will never leave out of my toolbox. I have included Mr. Russell’s article in this issue of the Brillo. I think it’s worth a read. Belinda DeLaby, President, Suncoast GWPC

Suncoast Supported Entry Results Great Dogs, great friends, and lots of fun pretty much sums up the Suncoast German Wirehaired Pointer Club Supported Entry, Saturday, May 8, 2011 in Watkinsville, GA. Our supported entry was held in conjunction with the Oconee River Kennel Club all breed show at the beautiful Oconee Heritage Park and we could not have asked for a better host. The Oconee River KC and show chair Julie Gentry opened their “hospitality” doors to our club. Thanks to Julie, our club had designated grooming and parking, and we could not have had such a successful event without you. For our Supported Entry we had the lovely Ms. Anne Savory Bolus as our judge and 17 German Wirehaired Pointers vying for 4 points. Not only were the points up for grab but, through donations from our board members we also had great prizes. We want to thank Belinda DeLaby for donating a GWP Print Quilt and Quillo for Winners Dog and Bitch, and Angie Johnson for donating grooming boxes for Best of Breed and Best of Opposite; but the generous donations did not stop with the prizes. We also want to thank Bob and Kathy Marks for donating a lovely GWP Framed Print. Through their generosity we were able to raise $135.00 for the club by raffling the print during the Suncoast sponsored BBQ lunch. Now for the results… POINTERS (GERMAN WIREHAIRED).

Animal Planet, Dogs 101 As you may know, Animal Planet features a series called Dogs 101 in which they showcase several breeds in each segment. In the fall of 2011 Animal Planet will feature our very own German Wirehaired Pointers! I’m happy to say that Caramel had a litter just the right age, plus we’re within driving distance of New York City, where the photography is done, so we were chosen to represent the breed! It was a memorable experience. Actually, it was two experiences. On Monday, April 18, an Animal Planet photographer came to my home with a very large hand-held camera, and basically followed (or tried to!) my four 8 ½ wk. old wild puppies around my yard, who were in perpetual motion for an unbelievable hour and a half without stopping to take a breath! My friend Ellen and I helped to corral the pups who, after first backing away from the big black camera, decided it was harmless – and began to chase and play like energizer bunnies. Every so often, they’d turn their attention to the helpless photographer (who was crouching in order to get the best shots). Tails wagging, they leapt on him, aiming for his face and ears, almost knocking him over in the attempt. A couple of really good pictures were lost that way! Needless to say, we three humans were exhausted by the end of the session. But the pups had an unforgettable time. Once they were put back in their beds, they were asleep instantly and we didn’t hear a sound from them for several hours! On Friday of that week, we drove to a New York City studio location for yet more pictures. Sorbet, the pups’ dam, would be included in the shoot. This is a two and a half hour trip each way. My husband Don came along, as driver, crate hauler, etc. I loaded the minivan the day before, which was packed to the roof with extra beds, pee pads, toys, paper towels , a couple of crates to hold the pups and Sorbet, and an extra couple folded, a dolley, an ex-pen – you name it, it was in there! The pups went to sleep almost as soon as the car started, and it was a peaceful trip. When we pulled up to the studio address (after circling the block a time or two), the only place to unload was the bus stop. Luckily my city dwelling daughter Melinda met us there to lend a hand, assisted by the photographer’s husband, who came down from the 8th floor studio to help. By the time we’d loaded the dolley with the puppies and all the gear for the trip upstairs, a bus was waiting to occupy the space, and a policeman was threatening to give us a ticket if we didn’t let it do so immediately. While Don drove off to park the car, we stuffed the dog and the crated pups and gear on the dolley into the small elevator and made the trip upstairs. When the elevator door opened, we were surprised to find ourselves in a waiting room crowded with many (leashed) dogs of various breeds, with their seated owners. There were pointers, shorthaired pointers, german shepherds, a borzoi or two, to name just a few. We squeezed the ex-pen into a crowded

Summer 2011

Animal Planet, Dogs 101- pg 2 corner next to a trembling Petite Basset, and unloaded the pups into it. We didn’t have to wait long however. Because we had restless puppies, we were asked to bring them into the studio fairly quickly. What a scene that was. The room was a “white site”, meaning the pups would be photographed against a seamless white background, brilliantly lit. I could carry pups into the spotlit area, but only if I shed my shoes and put on clean socks. There were at least two photographers crouching there, and a number of people behind the lights in the shadows, giving us instructions and cooing over the puppies. I put the pups in the center of the site, and they immediately dispersed, running into the darkened part of the room to say hello to the people there. They were herded back and some irresistible toys were thrown into the site to occupy them. More running and playing with the toys. One of the boys picked up a toy and strutted around with it, showing everybody his prize. Camera shutters snapped. Another pup came over and wrestled it away from him. More snapping. Again, the pups were having a wonderful time, and, with all the commotion, I think the photographers got some good material. The pups were put away and Mama Sorbet was put in the spotlight. Poor Sorbet. My pretty showgirl was not at her best. No matter how they encouraged her, she refused to give them the happy, tail wagging picture they wanted. Head down, tail down, she looked like she’d lost her best friend. To make matters worse, her usually very nice coat was blown due to the pregnancy - and an assistant kept brushing what was left of it back toward Sorbet’s head (!!), while I looked on horrified. Mercifully that didn’t last long. My hope is that the Sorbet portion winds up on the cutting room floor, and the pups get all the attention!! And once we signed the release, we were free to exit the “white site”, load up Mama and her kids and undertake the long trip home to Connecticut. Airdate for the Animal Planet GWP episode is still unknown – except that it’ll be in the Fall, during the next season of Dogs 101. Watch your TV Guide. And I’ll spread the word as soon as I know.

Meet theMeet Memberthe Member Margie Howard How Long Have You Been In Wires? I got my first wirehair while living in Wisconson in 1984. How or Why did you get into Wires? I got into wires kind of by accident. I was really looking for an Irish Wolfhound and was talking to a lot of breeders. My roommate had Belgium Terv. and so did her vet. Then her vet got a wirehair puppy which I fell in love with. I told them if their pup, Maggie, ever needed a home, I wanted her. One day they called me and said if you want her, come get her. The vet (actually it was a couple, she was a small animal vet, he a large animal vet) had come home from vaccinating cows and left the oil based marker he used to mark the cows on the kitchen counter. Maggie found the marker and proceeded to color the whole kitchen and herself orange. She was too busy for them so I got her. First purebred dog I ever owned.

What is your favorite characteristic about German Wirehaired Pointerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s? I love the fuzzy face! Who was your first GWP? Maggie, CH Towerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s February Magic, UD Who was your favorite GWP? Maggie Hope

What is your kennel name and how did you get it? My kennel name is Creaghans, it is a different spelling of my maiden name, Creagan.

How long have you been married & do you have kids? Married in Sept. 1992. A guy called me up looking for a GWP, he was interested in getting one, had never met one, and heard thru a friend I owned one. He came over, met Maggie, took home some breeders names and bought a pup. A year later, I was showing his dog for him, Max, and it just when on from there. How many Wires currently reside at your house? I have 5 wires at home, ages 15,14,6,4, and almost 1.

Freeze Young, Freeze Often By: Courtney Vogel-Bastain The method of semen freezing has been a common breeding method for the past 30 years. It’s proven that, conception rates increase 6 times when frozen semen is deposited directly into the uterus. Frozen semen allows us to preserve our great dogs and continue on our lines. Breeders commonly choose to breed their bitch via frozen semen because of the convenience. It’s easier and more cost effective to import and export frozen semen, in effort to improve, preserve, and expand genetic diversity. Dogs should have their semen collected by a veterinary reproduction specialist. For a frozen insemination breeding to be successful, not only is an experienced, knowledgeable repro vet a necessity, so is progesterone timing of the bitch. Most frozen semen isn’t guaranteed because you already know the specifics of the quality and quantity, per the evaluation during the collection. A breeder doesn’t want to give up another breeding unit from the limited supply they have left on the stud dog. Though it’s a gamble to use frozen semen on a maiden bitch because you don’t know if she’s able to conceive and/or maintain a litter, repro vets prefer a maiden bitch because the younger the uterus, the better. Another advantage to a frozen insemination is that your vet is able to accurately assess if the bitch has a healthy uterus. It isn’t uncommon that we’ve had great semen and when the bitch has been opened up, her uterus is full of cysts, or in bad enough condition that would make her a poor breeding candidate, so breeders decide at that point to use the semen on a different bitch because the likelihood of a conception with an unhealthy uterus is null. With a good repro vet, proper progesterone timing, and a young, healthy bitch, chances are likely to have a successful frozen insemination. The process isn’t as weird as you may think, but I’ve found that when husband’s have been sent to “take the dog to the vet” for this sort of appointment, they become pretty mute! So I’ll give you an idea of what to expect so there’s no shock factor. There are 2 methods of freezing, one is in straws and the other is in pellets. Commonly, the pellets are preferred because if future DNA or health tests can be determined from semen, or if you want to check it for some specific reason, you’re able to thaw just a small pellet rather than an entire straw. Our repro clinic is an ICSB (International Canine Semen Bank), there’s typically one ICSB in each state, and they use the pellet freezing method. If you have your own bitch, or know someone who has one in season, bring them because it will save you money, approximately $35 - $50. If you’re in no rush, it’s worth waiting for your bitch to come in season, she is referred to as a “teaser bitch”. As the stud proceeds to mount the teaser, your repro vet will place a bag that funnels into a test tube to collect the semen in. A drop of semen is then used to determine the count, then is put on a slide under the microscope to determine sperm abnormalities and motility. The entire collection is then put into a centrifuge to spin down and separate the sperm from the prostatic fluid. Once separated, the prostatic fluid is drawn off the top and disposed of. An egg-based freeze media is then added and mixed into the sperm, this gives it the capability to thrive and survive the freezing process. The mixture is then chilled for 30 min. Immediately after, the semen is pelleted on dry ice and let “fix” for 3 min., then put into a labeled tube with your dog’s information and into the storage tank filled with liquid nitrogen. One pellet is thawed and place on a slide to be examined with the microscope. This determines how the semen has gone through the freezing process and if it’s good enough to keep for storage. Some dogs have a great collection, all healthy, motile sperm, but just can’t cope with the freezing process, so is no good and tossed out. The way we package our frozen semen is by the number of normal live sperm cells per dose. A dog with a great sperm count may get multiple breedings out of each collection. A dog with lower sperm count may get one. We calculate our dose so that each breeding has a set number of live normal sperm, rather than by volume or by a set number.


Suncoast German Wirehaired Pointer Club

Summer 2011

Freeze Young, Freeze Often- pg 2 Frozen semen lasts stored, probably forever. It uses minimal energy when it's stored in the liquid nitrogen at minus 322 degrees F. Ideally, you want to have your dog collected between the ages of 2 – 5 years old. Often time breeders wait until it’s too late. Semen quality and quantity decreases as a dog ages, so freeze young and freeze often. For most dogs, they don’t fully mature or achieve all their accomplishments until after 5 yrs of age, so I highly stress getting your young dogs in early! It costs about $75 - $100 per year to keep semen stored, all clinics are different, but with ours, you can have up to 30 breeding units without being charged an additional storage fee. Nice thing about all of this is that you have it forever and ever (so leave it in your Will), and if you don’t want it, then toss it. You never know if tomorrow will be your stud dog’s last day. Don’t be one of the many breeders that wish they had collected frozen semen on their favorite dog before it was too late!

This database provides a source of health info. for owners, breeders, and scientists that will assist in breeding healthy dogs. The CHIC requirements are health clearances, determined by the GWPCA, that breeders should consider for dogs in their breeding program and that buyers should research when purchasing a puppy. When a dog has completed all of the required tests they are given a CHIC number. It is important to remember that just because a dog has received a CHIC number does not mean he or she has passed all of their health clearances. It means that the owner has had the required tests performed and has let the results be open to the public.

Currently there are 27 GWP’s with CHIC Numbers and Suncoast Club Members Own 14 of those dogs. The required health tests for German Wirehaired Pointers CHIC certification are as follows: Elbow Dysplasia Hip Dysplasia ! !

Yielding

Yielding

-By Dick Russell

Yielding is a concept that I first ran into at a Pat Pirelli horse seminar and then read more about in his book "Natural Horse-Man-Ship." It is based on the fact (factoid?) that among group dwelling animals, it is the more dominant animals that control space and that the higher the dominance the greater and more specific space is controlled. How does an animal control space? By making other animals get out of it. The corollary to this is that the ability to control space bestows status. IOW, as a young mare develops the ability to claim a choicer feeding or watering position, her rank in the herd order rises. This lead me to begin watching my own, too many, dogs. I noticed that the higher-ranking ones spent time causing the lower ones to get out of their way. A low ranking one would move off the couch, for instance, when a higher member approached. I also noticed that ranking was not a fixed thing, but was, rather, a constantly shifting phenomenon. When Laura and I were together, and had between us fourteen dogs - yes, the woman was crazy - she had a Dalmatian bitch that was at most times the bottom of the pack. There is a wild persimmon tree in my yard. When this tree was dropping ripe fruit, this bitch claimed them all as her own. She would not let any of the other dogs within about forty feet of the tree. During this period of time, she was by all appearances the dominant member of our pack. The other dogs deferred to her, not just about the persimmons, but also in all other aspects of their daily lives. Oddly, when the persimmon drop was over, she sank back to the bottom. It was as if (anthropomorphically) the others said, "If the silly bitch wants them that bad, let her have them." Larger, stronger members could have taken the right to the fruit in battle. That, however, did not happen. The ability to cause other animals to Yield space (i.e., to move out of the way) seems to be a matter of force of personality rather than one of physical size or strength, though they sometimes go hand in hand. Along about this same time, I was becoming disenchanted with the usual dominance exercises that we dog trainers had been taught and were teaching. Many (most) of them were more confrontational than was needed, desired or even helpful. What we were doing was not the things that happened in a stable group of dogs. Living with a stable pack of dogs for any length of time, and observing them, will teach you that appeasement is a much more prevalent mode of interaction than confrontation. Former Speaker of the House of Representatives of the United States, Sam Rayburn, D TX, once said, "To get along, you go along." Dogs figured this out long before people ever did. A dog's aim is simply to get through the day as easily and with as little hassle as possible. This is achieved by appeasement rather than confrontation. Dog trainers, most at least, had missed this. They, along with behaviorists and etiologists, had completely missed what was really going on. Case in point, as an example, the alpha roll. There is no such thing. There is a cinnamon roll, there is a Parker House roll, there is a rock and roll and there is a roll mighty river roll on, but there is no alpha roll. But there is a beta roll. The higher ranking dog, except by his personality and presence, has nothing to do with this behavior. It is physically initiated and performed by the lower ranking animal as an act of appeasement. Dog trainers who have attempted alpha roll

Yielding- pg 2 techniques with dominant, ready to fight, dogs have learned and have the scars to prove, that this is a really spiffy way to get yourself bitten. Initially I practiced Yielding with my own dogs. Then, when I would borrow and untrained dog to demonstrate with at class, I'd have him move out of my way a couple or three times before I demonstrated what I had borrowed him for. I noticed a couple of things almost immediately. After a couple or three Yields the dogs gave me their attention. This was not always the case before I started having them Yield to me. Also, they caught on to what I wanted them to catch on to quicker. A short time later, I made it a part of what I had the students teach their dogs to do. This change caused an almost 100% improvement in the results that my students were getting with their dogs. Because the students were more successful, dropout rates plummeted. The command we use to have the dog Yield is "move." I call yielding "the magic move." Having taught the dog to move out of your way makes everything else you will ever attempt to teach him easier to teach. Yielding, by and large, makes everything else we have, in the past, done to establish our leadership completely unnecessary. With my own dogs, if they get to a door before I do, I let them go through first if they want. I regularly and deliberately feed my dogs before I eat. I let them hang out on the sofa, the easy chairs and my bed. I purposefully violate every principle in Terry Ryan's nice little pamphlet "Alphabetizing Yourself." (And Margie, I ain't dumping on the lady.) But, at random times through the day, as our paths intersect, I have my dogs Yield the right of way to me. I do not have aggression toward me problems. I do not face challenges. I do not even have over pushiness. Neither do my students once they start this procedure. Above, I used the qualifier, "by and large." Yielding does not seem to affect the (rare) psychotic dog. Alone, it does not stop fear-aggression. But, used in conjunction with balanced training, to give the dog some structure and discipline in his life, and large field socialization, as developed by David Klein (DTD), we are having very good improvement with older fear aggressive dogs and absolute cures with dogs under a year. I teach a six weeks long class with four weeks of new information. During the first week we have the dogs Yield as we approach them from the front. The second week we come in on both shoulders. The third, we come at about diaphragm level on both sides and the fourth week from an angle behind the dog intersecting him at his hips. Procedure the first week (and you can extrapolate to the other positions) is to stand in front of the dog with him on a loose lead. Saying, "move, move, move," walk into him. Do not kick the dog. Try not to step on him. Do not stop walking into him until he moves. As soon as he moves, even the slightest, quit moving forward. Give him relief. Praise and pet him. Teaching Yielding is negative reinforcement training. Folks with little dogs need to "Charley Chaplin" into the dog with their toes turned out and their heels together. Later, you have him move farther to get relief. It is never, though, farther than out of your way. Yielding works best when it is practiced at random times throughout the day as opposed to being drilled. When you get through with that first cup of coffee in the morning and are going to put the cup in the sink, plot your path through the dog. Have him move. Go rinse the cup out. Later,

Yielding- pg 3 when you get through playing on your computer, take a moment to have the dog Yield to you. Tell him "move" and go through him. When you get off the phone with your mother-in-law and just really, really need to vent some frustration, walk through the dog. "GET THE %$#& OUT OF MY WAY!!!" Except for maw-in-law, Yielding is non-confrontational. It allows you to interact with the dog in a way that dogs interact with one another. And, it says to him, in a language that he is hardwired to understand, "I am the leader, you are the follower." I consider Yielding equal with large field socialization as the two most important things I am doing. I think that they are things all class instructors should be doing. Everybody does not have access to a place to conduct the large field socialization classes, but everybody can incorporate Yielding into their classes. By Dick Russell- Printed with permission

FISH FUDGE -1 can (14oz.) salmon, or can use (2 small cans) tuna or 1 (14 oz.) mackerel, (mackerel smells horrible) *We like salmon or tuna, use juice and all -2 eggs, slightly beaten -1 to 1 & ½ tbsp. garlic powder -About a handful of grated Parmesan cheese -1 to ½ cup whole-wheat flour, or you can mix with brown rice flour. Throw all of this into a blender, or food processor and mix well. This takes a couple minutes. You can also just mix by hand, as I did when my food processor broke. Spray a pan about 7” x 10”, can be a little larger with a little cooking spray. Spread mixture into pan, and bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes, until set. (it will be spongy). Let cool and cut into pieces, and freeze till needed. It thaws quickly so you can take it out just before you are going to train. It does need to be kept refrigerated though. We try to buy salmon when we catch it on sale to have on hand. I keep my whole wheat flour, & parmesan cheese in the freezer. (walmart seems to have a good price on salmon).
