Just as judges would be ready for the whistle, Gee! would lock in and make forward progress. It was painstakingly slow and several times I came close to tossing my hands in the air to surrender. BUT just as the judges exercised patience, so did I. Eventually she made that final turn and began to dig in towards the end. It was as if from 50 yards away she could hone in on the scent of the leather glove article that she knew from training marked the end. It was far from pretty, but if tracking were scored as in obedience, this would have been one of those 170s kind of run. NONETHELESS, a pass is a pass. We'll work on our problems another day, but for that day, we celebrated the hard fought victory and the blessing I have in my life named Gee! Sharon McDonald

“Gee!” earned her Tracking Dog title on January 10, 2016, making her titled in the 7 AKC sports in which dachshunds are eligible to participate. Since then, Gee! has earned her Utility Dog (UD) title in obedience and her Preferred Agility Champion (PACH) title in agility. She puts up with so much from me and still gives such beautiful, heartwarming love in return. I couldn’t be more proud!

Above and Below Ground Introducing the Tunnel by Trudy Kawami

Hunting above ground is a relatively natural thing for most dogs, but entering a dark tunnel in search of prey is less so. It is this activity – going to ground or to earth - that marks an earthdog. This also distinguishes earthdog trials from barn hunt. Thus you want to introduce the tunnel as an interesting place that is self-rewarding. You can train a dog to enter by command, but this introduces an aspect of compulsion that in the long run is not productive. The key is making this fun for the dog.

The Canine Good Citizen Tests and its Spin-offs by Karen Scheiner

The Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test has recently been widely popular as an introduction to the dog and the owner, for teaching good manners. Although some owners curtail their obedience training after earning the CGC Certificate, this is really when higher levels of obedience training should begin! Not only do the CGC tests lay the groundwork for basic acceptable behavior in the household, but they also serve as a foundation for learning exercises in competitive obedience classes.

TRUE OR FALSE? 10 Common Canine Influenza Beliefs Explained By Sue M. Copeland with Jason Stull, VMD, MPVM, PhD, DACVPM

You’ve heard of the outbreaks: Canine influenza virus (CIV) hits a region or regions; thousands of dogs are infected. Most survive, but there are fatalities. Misinformation abounds. How do you make the right choices to protect your dog? To help, we consulted canine infectious disease expert Dr. Jason Stull, Assistant Professor, Department of Veterinary Preventive Medicine at Ohio State University. He recently led a study team to develop recommendations to prevent canine infections, including CIV, in places where dogs gather, such as shows, events, and kennels. We gave Dr. Stull 10 common CIV beliefs, and asked him to rate them “True” or “False.” Here’s what he had to say. True or False: As with human influenza, there are multiple strains of CIV.

8

Dachshund Club of America Spring 2017

TRUE. There are currently two known CIV strains in the United States. The first one is H3N8, which is equine in origin. That’s right: The virus morphed, via adaptive evolution, from being an equine influenza virus to a canine-specific one. It originally spread from racehorses to greyhounds at the same Florida racetrack in January 2004. Since then, the strain has been documented in 40 states and Washington, D.C. It appears to be most common in areas of Colorado, Florida, New York, and Pennsylvania. The second, more recent strain is H3N2. It originally seemed limited to Korea, China, and Thailand. Then in March 2015, an outbreak occurred in the Chicago area (spreading to other Midwestern states) that was determined to be due to an H3N2 strain. From there, it acted like a typical flu virus: It moved quickly in a short amount of time, and caused a lot of disease in dogs. Since March 2015, outbreaks have occurred in a number of U.S. areas; thousands of dogs have been confirmed positive for the H3N2 virus. (Flu trivia: H3N2 is likely avian, meaning bird, in origin. All flu viruses are believed to start in birds.) True or False: The current vaccines for H3N8 and H3N2 are highly effective.

TRUE AND FALSE. Unlike some canine vaccines that are highly effective at completely preventing infection and illness (such as for Rabies and Parvovirus), H3N8 and H3N2 vaccines don’t generally completely prevent the disease. Instead, they’re considered tools in a multi-faceted approach to help control CIV’s spread. (See “Flu-Fighting Tips,” next page.) However, they can help reduce CIV’s severity and duration in your dog, which also helps limit its ability to spread. My study team recommends that you consider vaccinating your dog for CIV if you live in an area that has flu outbreaks, or are taking your dogs into high-risk settings, such as shows, kennels, or dog parks. Both vaccines consist of an initial dose, followed by annual boosters. So far, there doesn’t appear to be crossprotection between the H3N2 and H3N8 vaccines. To find out which one would be appropriate for your dog, consult your local veterinarian. He or she will be able to tell you what strain is occurring in your area, and guide you in choosing the best CIV vaccine(s) for your dog. Note: Just recently, it was announced that there is a new vaccine that covers both strains. For more information, go to http://www.doginfluenza.com/

True or False: The U.S. has a strong program in place for tracking canine flu outbreaks. FALSE. There is no national (nor state) CIV tracking. There is, however, good information available from Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine, via their Canine Influenza Virus Surveillance Network, which includes outbreak updates and maps, but it is in no way fully comprehensive. (Go to https://ahdc.vet.cornell.edu/news/civchicago.cfm.”) As a result, we don’t have complete information about total numbers of dogs affected by CIV, or by which strain. Without data to track, it is difficult to quantify a flu outbreak’s breadth and impact. With human flu outbreaks, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) does the tracking. For that to happen in dogs would require state and national action. (Currently, Rabies is the only canine disease that is tracked nationally.) True or False: All infected dogs show signs of infection (typically coughing, sneezing, fever, lethargy, and nasal discharge). FALSE. About 80 percent of infected dogs will show signs of illness. The other 20 percent will carry the virus but show no signs. That doesn’t mean they aren’t contagious! If your dog is infected, he will typically shed the most virus (meaning he’s at his most contagious) in the first few days after being exposed to the virus, whether or not he is showing signs. However, if your dog has been vaccinated against CIV, regardless of whether he shows any signs of the disease, he may be less infectious, and infectious for a shorter time, than will an unvaccinated dog. True or False: The flu virus is relatively easy to contain, and to kill with common disinfectants. TRUE. CIV is transmitted through respiratory droplets when an infected dog coughs, sneezes, or simply breathes. The droplets typically travel only a few feet, and can live on a surface for about 48 hours. That leaves plenty of time and opportunity for CIV to be picked up by your dog and other dogs, either through nose-to-nose contact, or by sniffing or licking an area on which the virus has landed. (That could be shared bowls, crates, beds, grooming tables and equipment, leashes, and toys. Or, your dog could pick up the virus simply by sniffing a spot on the floor on which an infected dog has shed it.) We humans can act as conduits for the virus as well. If you touch an infected dog’s nose or mouth, then touch another dog (or toy, or brush,

or leash), you can inadvertently spread the virus. That’s why proactive preventive measures are important to help stop the spread of CIV (and other infectious diseases). So, wash your hands with soap and water–or use a hand sanitizer–frequently. This is especially important between contact with each of your dogs (or any dog) during an outbreak. Avoid sharing bowls, toys, crates, beds, and grooming equipment. And disinfect shared areas with a product shown to kill CIV, such as a solution of 1part household bleach to 30-parts water. True or False: The CIV vaccine can give your dog the flu. FALSE. The virus in canine flu vaccines is “killed,” meaning it has been inactivated, so it can’t infect your dog. It will, however, fire up his immune system, which is how it serves to protect him. That means he may feel a bit puny for a few days, but he will NOT be shedding the virus. He WILL be developing a level of immunity against it. True or False: You can’t catch the flu from your dog. TRUE. H3N8 does not infect other species (including humans) at this point. However, in March 2016, it was reported that cats in an Indiana animal shelter had been infected with the H3N2 virus, which had spread to them from dogs. Cat-to-cat transmission can then occur. There currently is no flu vaccine for cats. True or False: CIV can affect dogs of any age or breed. TRUE. However, as with any infectious disease, puppies (especially those under 6 months of age), have immature, evolving immune systems, so are more susceptible to CIV. They are also more likely to suffer a severe bout of the disease than are dogs with mature immune systems. Conversely, senior dogs, which have waning immune systems, also are more susceptible to CIV and its severe forms than healthy, younger dogs. Brachycephalic breeds (those with short, flat faces), such as Boston Terriers, Boxers, Pekingese, Pugs, and Shih Tzus are perhaps more likely to have respiratory complications from CIV and other respiratory diseases, and their recovery may be slower, than other breeds. If you are planning to take your puppy or senior dog to a show, kennel, or any event or location in which there will be a large number of dogs, be sure to consult with your veterinarian. It is important to remember that all infectious disease risks (not only CIV) are generally greatest for young and senior dogs. True or False: CIV is highly fatal. FALSE. Generally, fewer than 10 percent of infected dogs will die from CIV or result in complications. (The exact number is hard to quantify because there is no national tracking system.) The vast majority of infected dogs, like people with the flu, will have a limited course of the disease. In other words, it may be unpleasant but not fatal. And, as with humans, many dogs recover without a visit to their “doctor.” Typically, dogs infected with H3N8 will recover

around two weeks after first showing signs, so likely will no longer be shedding virus at that time. Dogs vaccinated against CIV that have been infected generally are sick (and are shedding the virus) for less than two weeks. H3N2-infected dogs can shed virus for about 21 days. Therefore, the American Veterinary Medical Association suggests that you isolate an H3N2-infected dog for three weeks. (If you suspect CIV in your dog, but do not know the strain, it would be best to use the three-weekisolation recommendation.) A caveat: As with each flu season in humans, there is always a chance that CIV will mutate and change, resulting in a higher mortality rate. That’s why we need more and better data, to help track the disease. (For more information on how you can help track and monitor canine infectious disease, see “Containing Canine Disease,” next page.) True or False: Treating your dog with antibiotics will kill the virus. FALSE. CIV is a viral infection. Antibiotics are only effective against bacterial infections. Plus, when you randomly treat a sick dog with antibiotics, without knowing if the illness is viral or bacterial in nature, you risk creating resistance to antibiotics, which can make future infections harder to treat. That said, your veterinarian will prescribe antibiotics, if necessary, if your dog develops a secondary bacterial infection due to CIV, such as bacterial pneumonia. CANINE FLU-FIGHTING TIPS Use these tips to help limit the spread of CIV. Leave any dogs with signs of infection at home. These can include lethargy, coughing, and sneezing. Isolate CIV-infected dogs for 3 weeks. This means keeping these dogs away from all other dogs, and being careful about accidentally moving the virus to other dogs on objects, such as bowls–or your hands or clothing. If you touch dogs in group settings (such as in your kennel, or at shows or other events), frequently wash your hands with soap and water, or use a hand sanitizer. Avoid sharing items such as leashes, bowls, and toys. Minimize unnecessary dog-to-dog contact. Regularly disinfect community surfaces (such as floors, crates, bedding, grooming tables and

10 Common Canine Influenza Beliefs Explained continued from page 9 grooming equipment) with a product effective at killing CIV, such as a solution of 1-part household bleach to 30-parts water. Keep your dog’s vaccines up to date; talk to your veterinarian about the best CIV vaccination program for him, based on his lifestyle. Take care when bringing puppies and seniors to shows, events, dog parks, or any place where lots of dogs congregate. Talk to your veterinarian about the risk of illness (and whether it should outweigh any benefit, such as socialization). CONTAINING CANINE DISEASE In research supported by the AKC Canine Health Foundation (CHF) and the Orthopedic Foundation For Animals (OFA), Dr. Stull and a team of collaborators reviewed more than 400 academic papers related to halting the spread of canine disease, including CIV. As a result, the team produced new guidelines intended as tools for those of you in charge of canine group settings, such as dog shows and events, and kennels, as well as for dog owners. “When you have many dogs in a fairly confined space, the opportunities for disease transmission are everywhere,” says Dr. Stull. “In veterinary medicine, we’re probably 30 years behind in our infection control and tracking efforts, compared to those in human medicine. But a lot of the risks can be managed with some simple steps,” he continues. Dr. Stull and his team recommend that kennel staff, and show and event coordinators develop a surveillance program to monitor for infectious diseases, focusing on dogs that develop clinical signs at their particular setting. Doing so allows for early recognition of disease transmission and outbreaks. The full report, including the study team’s recommendations for disease recognition and response by staff and organizers, as well as a “risk calculator” for infectious disease, plus fact sheets addressing particular canine diseases, is available through the Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine.

Dachshund Club of America Spring 2017

Orlando, Florida in December is delightful and so began the 4th Annual American Kennel Club’s Obedience Classic. On December 17-18, 2016 four dachshund owners with their 5 dachshunds met at the AKC Obedience Classic held in conjunction with the AKC Agility Invitational, the AKC Juniors Classic (Obedience & Rally), NADD/AKC National Dock Diving Championship, and the AKC National Championship (Conformation). Three dachshunds were entered in Obedience in Novice out of 72 entries, and one was entered in Open out of 64 entries. One of the Novice dogs and another dachshund were entered on a Team (Preferred Team is what is performed at the Classic). There were a total of two Teams entered. Two hundred and twenty-five teams, with 62 breeds from 38 states competed multiple times over the two day show. The classes offered were Novice, Open (each with 3 runs and 1 set of stays), Utility (3 runs) and Masters (6 runs – 3 Open & 3 Utility with 1 set of stays) and Team. The scores were cumulative to be ranked for top honors except for the parent club medallions. This year the Dachshund Club of America sponsored the Highest Scoring Dachshund medallion. These are only offered through each breed’s parent club and must be sponsored each year to be offered. There were at least 112 parent club medallions offered as listed in the show catalog this year. Novice dogs entered and shown were: “George” Stonerivers Snowman MLC CD BN CGC owned by Madalyn and Isabella Tobias, handled by Maddie Tobias from New York, NY; “Sprite” Goose Creek Toumesol Sprite CD RE SE owned and handled by Ruth Hoffman from Concord, NC; “Mr. Tali” FC Mye Dachshire Blue Moon Talisman CD PCD BN RE JE CGC CGCA CGCU

owned by Sandi Myers and Ken Hagmueller, handled by Sandi Myers from Waxahachie, TX. The Open dog was: “Roxie” EJ’s Roxie CDX RAE2 OAP OJP OFP owned by Arleen C. and William G. Harry, handled by Arleen Harry from Cherry Hill, NJ. On Team “Pixar Pals” was: “Mr. Tali” FC Mye Dachshire Blue Moon Talisman CD PCD BN RE JE CGC CGCA CGCU handled by Sandi Myers from Waxahachie, TX. “Cyan” DC Mye Primadox Shambala CDX BN RAE THDD CGCA, CGCU owned by Sandi Myers and Ken Hagmueller. Cyan ended up not showing and Mr. Tali as the alternate was shown. Other team Pixar Pals members were a Border Collie as Buzz Lightyear, a chocolate Lab as Woodie, a Belgian Tervuren as Jessie and Mr. Tali as Slinky Dog all from the movie Toy Story. We had Disney/Pixar/Orlando as inspiration for our Theme. This team ended up winning First Place and Best Theme. “Mr. Tali” was the winner of the Highest Scoring Dachshund medallion with his single individual score from the Novice class. I would like to thank Sharon McDonald for the reminder, Denny Van Hook for her quick action and the DCA Board for approving the medallion sponsorship in time to be offered this year. The dachshund owners were very supportive of each other at the event, cheering for each other’s runs as they came out of the ring despite the outcome. We even took time to get a dachshund group photo in a couple of the spots that AKC set up for exhibitors to get some fun pictures during the event. If you ever get a chance to enter the AKC Obedience Classic, go for it. I had an amazing time and hope to do it again someday.

NEW 7-WAY TITLED DACHSHUND

TC MACH4 PACH SHARPREE’S IMAGINE THAT! VCD2 UD RN MXC MJB2 MXPB MJPB PAX OF T2B SE Indeed, IMAGINE THAT! “Gee!” earned her Tracking Dog title on January 10, 2016, making her titled in the 7 AKC sports in which dachshunds are eligible to participate. She did it by the hardest in a track that took her forEVER. It was a cold day by New Orleans standards, humid from rain the days prior. We drew the first TD track which ran around noon. The usual Gee! that pulled so hard I would get rope burn was missing in action. She started nicely at the start article, but by the 30 yard flag, she suspected this was not our normal outing. Something was seemingly different. She felt it and she succumbed to the perceived pressure. Inch by inch, with pauses and detours along the way, Gee! made her way through the track. Airplanes soared overhead, and our audience of tracklayers and friends patiently watched from afar. Just as judges would be ready for the whistle, Gee! would lock in and make forward progress. It was painstakingly slow, and several times I came close to tossing my hands in the air to surrender. BUT just as the judges exercised patience, so did I. Eventually she made that final turn and began to dig in towards the end. It was as if from 50 yards away she could hone in on the scent of the leather glove article that she knew from training marked the end.

It was far from pretty, but if tracking were scored as in obedience, this would have been one of those 170s kind of run. NONETHELESS, a pass is a pass. We'll work on our problems another day, but for that day, we celebrated the hard fought victory and the blessing I have in my life named Gee! Thanks to our judges Ed Presnall and Debbie Maheu and to the members of Deep South All Breed Obedience Club for being such fabulous hosts! Super special thanks to Steff Monteleone for being our guide, motivator, and mentor. We would not have done this without you!! Mostly, special thanks to my buddy Gee! She puts up with so much from me and still gives such beautiful, heartwarming love in return. I couldn’t be more proud! Earning her Tracking Dog title also earned Gee! her AKC Versatile Companion Dog 2 title consisting of her CDX, MACH, and TD titles. Since then, Gee! has earned her Utility Dog (UD) title in obedience and her Preferred Agility Champion (PACH) title in agility. Gee! will show in agility and obedience for fun while she continues to train and improve her tracking skills, hoping to earn her Tracking Dog Excellent (TDX) and someday dream to earn her Variable Surface Tracking (VST) titles. ! by Sharon McDonald Dachshund Club of America Spring 2017

by Trudy Kawami unting above ground is a relatively natural thing for most dogs, but entering a dark tunnel in search of prey is less so. It is this activity – going to ground or to earth that marks an earthdog. This also distinguishes earthdog trials from barn hunt. Thus you want to introduce the tunnel as an interesting place that is self-rewarding. You can train a dog to enter by command, but this introduces an aspect of compulsion that in the long run is not productive. The key is making this fun for the dog. Once a dog has shown strong impulse to get to a rat in a cage, the next step is to place that cage at the end of a short, above-ground tunnel,

perhaps 3-4 feet long. [Fig. 1] This tunnel (or den liner) should be wooden and of the same dimensions, approximately 9 X 9 inches, as regulation liners. The trainer places the cage in the middle of the liner and remains seated on

trainer can then push the cage toward the dog as if the rat has peeped out. [Fig. 2] When the dog is engaged with the rat, barking, growling, pawing or lunging, the trainer slowly pulls the rat cage through the tunnel pausing at the end so that the dog can get close to the rat. (The leash may be left on the dog for safety sake and can trail through the tunnel after the dog.) Then the trainer should move the cage away from the tunnel quickly keeping in the prey zone (12 inches or less above the ground). Let the dog lunge at the cage or bark or display other appropriate behavior for which the handler praises the dog. This activity is easy for small and slender dogs, but is especially important for

the ground with one hand on the handle of the cage. The handler stations the dog, still on lead, at the end of the liner opposite the trainer. If the dog does not notice the rat in the cage, the

larger standard Dachshunds or substantial terriers like the Glen of Imaal in Figs. 3 and 4. This stage is when the dogs learn to sink down and crawl and to be confortable in a constricted space. Note that in Figure 3 an assistant keeps one foot on the above ground tunnel to steady it. Leggier terriers like the Bedlington in Fig. 5 learn to fold their legs like yardsticks. If the short tunnel is negotiated successfully three times, the session is over and the dog should be removed from the training area. A second phase of the training is the introduction of a much longer tunnel. [Fig. 6] This should only be done when the dogs is enthusiastically entering and clearing the shorter tunnel. In this exercise the leash is kept slack and the dropped as the dog goes through the entire length and gets to bark or lunge at the caged rat. [Fig. 7] Care should be taken to see that the leash does not snag and

that the dog is not in any way corrected for traversing the tunnel. The next session with the tunnel introduces a right angle turn. [Fig. 8] The tunnel may turn in either direction. It is important the that the length of tunnel after the turn is short enough so that the trainer can reach the rat cage placed at the turn directly opposite the dog standing at the entrance. The rat is then drawn out slowly as the dog makes the turn. This is where many large Dachshunds and some terriers have a problem maneuvering. It may take a few tries before the dog realizes that it can shift slightly sideways and compress its chest enough to make the turn. It is important here to praise the dog for trying and to be patient, especially with an older or heavier dog. This is also where you can see the value of the “correct shoulder assembly and well-fitted elbows” described in our standard.

Figure 10

A final session presents the dogs with an above ground tunnel having two right-angle turns, one in each direction. [Fig. 9] The training procedure is the same for the single turn tunnel with the trainer manipulating the cage to attract the dog’s attention, and then drawing it out with a cord or thin rope. [Fig. 10] At this point the dog has completed the equivalent of an Intro to Quarry tunnel, so the next step will be actually entering the earth. The various stages I have described may be done singly on different days or for a very keen and talented dog run through in one day with at least a half hour (or more) between sessions. There is no obvious benefit to doing it all at once, and some feel that it is more beneficial to the dog to do each stage on a separate day. Dogs differ and learn at different rates – as do people. One size does NOT fit all, so tailor your training to the dog – and get the rat! ! Dachshund Club of America Spring 2017

The Canine Good Citizen Test and its Spin-offs What are all those tests about?!!! By Karen R. Scheiner, AKC Approved CGC Evaluator

The Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test has recently been widely popular as an introduction to the dog and the owner, for teaching good manners. Although some owners curtail their obedience training after earning the CGC Certificate, this is really when higher levels of obedience training should begin! Not only do the CGC tests lay the groundwork for basic acceptable behavior in the household, but they also serve as a foundation for learning exercises in competitive obedience classes. The AKC’s goal with the CGC program is to emphasize the importance of training and raising well-behaved dogs as members of the family and in public. With the rising popularity of the CGC Tests, the AKC has widely expanded this program. It now includes AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy, for puppies up to age of 12 months, as well as the Urban CGC (CGCU) for dogs in the city, and the Community Canine, also known as Advance Canine Good Citizen (CGCA). There is no age requirement for any of these tests, except the age limit as mentioned for S.T.A.R. Puppy. In the past, the CGC test was underrated. Only recently has it breathed new life, with the advent of other “spin-off” tests. It is vitally important for every dog living in a household to learn the skills required in this basic test. Not only do dogs need to walk politely on a leash – that means without barking, pulling, and getting out of control in public, but they also should exhibit this behavior in the presence of other dogs. The CGC is non-competitive and the precision of the exercises is relaxed. Many dogs who compete in conformation never see the inside of an obedience ring. Yet, by earning the CGC title, the

24

Dachshund Club of America Spring 2017

owner can be proud to know that his dog has achieved basic manners and skills. My first introduction to the CGC test was some twenty years ago, with my dachshund, Harley. Harley was my “Novice A” dog, which means that he was the first dog that I ever trained in obedience. Honestly, I probably made as many mistakes as he did, because he was always willing to please, I worked my best to teach him the exercises correctly! After taking an 8-week obedience class, Harley was ready to take the CGC test. At that time, the AKC just offered a CGC Certificate to those dogs who successfully passed the test. So Harley passed that test, and went on to earn his CD (Companion Dog) title and multiple agility titles. More recently, for an additional fee, the AKC will add “CGC” as a title at the end of the dog’s name. The CGC test allows the handler to talk to the dog throughout the test, and the dog is always on a leash or a long-line, so that he can is always under control and there is little chance of running away. The basic CGC test is composed of ten relatively simple exercises. • Accept a Friendly Stranger. The dog demonstrates that he will allow a friendly stranger to approach, speak to the owner, and even shake hands, with no signs of aggression. • Sit Politely for Petting. In this exercise, the dog, either standing or sitting, allows a friend or stranger to pet him without showing any shyness or resentment. • Appearance and Grooming. This exercise demonstrates that the dog will allow to be handled by a stranger, such as a veterinarian or groomer, for brushing or to examine the ears and front feet without any obvious annoyance. • Out for a Walk. This exercise shows that the owner is control of the dog, and that the dog will walk along with the handler, without pulling in a different direction. The dog can be on either side of the handler (unlike


in obedience, which is always the left side), and the owner will walk in a line, make a left turn, a right turn and an about turn, with at least two stops. The dog only needs to stay with the handler, no sits are required at the stopping. • Walk Through a Crowd. This test demonstrates that the dog can calmly walk with the handler in a situation such as a park or a crowded store, where there are other people and even dogs, milling around. • Sit and Down on Command and Staying in Place. This exercise seems to be the most challenging for first-time handlers and their dogs. Most pet owners believe that if the dog sits on command, even for a second, then he is trained. The more challenging training of the sit or down is for the dog to understand that they are to “stay” in that position until released by their owner. Therefore, in this exercise, a 20-foot long line is attached to the dog’s collar. The owner gives the command of either sit or down to the dog, and walks to the end of the line. The dog is expected to wait. The owner then returns to the dog and rewards with verbal praise. • Come When Called. In this exercise, the dog is on a 10-foot line. The dog is told to wait, and the handler walks 10 feet away. The owner then turns and calls the dog to come. The dog should proceed directly to the owner. • Reaction To Another Dog. In this exercise, the dog shows that he can behave politely around other dogs. The dog and owner approach another person with a dog on leash. They stop, greet each other and shake hands. The dogs should show no more than casual interest in each other. • Reactions to Distractions. This exercise shows if the dog is excessively fearful or confident in the present of visual or audible distractions. A jogger could run by, or a person in a wheelchair passes by for the visual distraction. The audible distraction could be a metal dish dropping, or a book falling on the floor. The dog may show interest and curiosity, but should not panic, show aggression or bark excessively. • Supervised Separation. The dog displays that he will not panic or act out of control if briefly left with another person. The owner will offer the dog’s lead (with dog on the other end) to the evaluator. The evaluator takes the leash and the owner tells the dog to stay, and going out of sight for three minutes. The dog does not have to sit, but should not appear excessively anxious or agitated. The dog should not panic, whine, continuously bark, or pace unnecessarily.

owner when called, from five feet away, and should not be stressed or become anxious by distractions. The puppy will allow the owner to walk 10 feet away, without exhibiting extreme anxiety. The S.T.A.R. Puppy Program is an excellent way to start training a very young puppy, with the goal, not only of receiving this AKC Certificate and sometimes a rosette, at the conclusion of six weeks, but to start good training habits at a young age.

URBAN CANINE GOOD CITIZEN The Urban Canine Good Citizen (CGCU) test is really an extension of the CGC, but is intended for people and dogs who live in or frequent the city. Having earned the basic CGC is a prerequisite for taking the Urban CGC. The test, which is all on-lead, is primarily given outdoors, in a real life situation, rather than a makeshift environment such as a pet store or training facility In this test, the dog and handler are required to walk on a busy sidewalk, pass other people and other dogs. If there is trash or food on the ground (such as an old hamburger), the dog must show little interest in the item (often a difficult feat for a low-to-the ground doxie!) The dog must allow a stranger to meet and talk to the handler, and allow the stranger to pet him. The dog should be comfortable walking near a wheelchair, or a baby stroller, or hearing a car horn blow without being startled. The test also requires the handler and dog to enter an elevator, take a ride up/down, and exit without anxiety. The dog must be trained well enough to lie down for three (3) minutes in a lobby or other central location where there are people and dogs present. Recently, my local all-breed kennel club offered this test at a YMCA, which was a perfect location. (We also lucked out with beautiful weather in February.) We had the opportunity to test about 20 dogs of all breeds. Four of them were dachshunds! At the YMCA, people were in and out of the building, asking about the dogs and wanting to pet them. Some people were eating and others were there to work out at the gym. We tested the dogs in groups of four, and since we had several evaluators, the dogs were all doing different exercises: some of the dogs were in the lobby doing the downs, while others were taking a walk down the street, while still others were riding the elevator. Everyone was kept busy, and in the end, everyone passed the test.

COMMUNITY CANINE: ADVANCED CGC The Community Canine test was actually introduced by the AKC prior to the Urban CGC. However, the requirements of both are relatively similar. The test is done in a “real world” situation rather than a contrived

S.T.A.R. PUPPY PROGRAM Because of the popularity and interest in the CGC test by owners who want to train their puppies, the AKC developed the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Program. To qualify as a S.T.A.R. Puppy, the dog must have attended a class with an AKC CGC Evaluator for six weeks and pass the Puppy Test at the end of the course. The word “S.T.A.R.” is actually an acronym for the words, Socialization, Training, Activity and Responsibility. As part of this test, the owner must pledge to be a responsible owner, provide regular veterinary health care to the puppy, and among other items, offer daily play and exercise. The S.T.A.R. puppy must be free of aggression toward people and other dogs, must tolerate a collar or harness and allow the owner to take away a toy without anger or resentment. The testing for this Certificate is similar to the basic CGC test, however less formal. The puppy must be able to sit and down on command, but no length of time is specified. The puppy will come to the

environment. Such places as a park, an outdoor dog show, or on a busy sidewalk are locations intended for this test. At all times the dog is on a loose leash and must be under control. The dog will sit or stand to allow the owner to complete paperwork for the test. When the owner takes a walk, the dog will not pull; there should be a left and right turn, a stop, and continued on page 27... Dachshund Club of America Spring 2017

AVMA HOD: Recall and Redraft Breeder Proposal! By: Dr. Marty Greer, DVM, JD, NAIA Chair Date: 01/13/2017 Category: | Veterinary Issues | The American Veterinary Medical Association House of Delegates (AVMA HOD) has coming before it a proposal to govern how veterinarians work with dog breeders. At first blush, this document seems benign enough: the title is “Inherited Disorders in Responsible Breeding of Companion Animals.” Sounds like mom and apple pie – no one wants to breed dogs with inherited disorders. But in merely four sentences, they pick out specific defects and breeds as examples. This begs the question of which breed or defect is next? Furthermore, much of the language in this document is imprecise. It states “only animals without deleterious inherited disorders are selected for breeding.” Who decides what is deleterious? And what will we discover in coming decades that turns out to be inherited that we don’t think is inherited now? Parvovirus and Pyometra are frequently categorized as viral and bacterial diseases, but both have a breed predilection that suggests a genetic component - this can only mean these are inherited disorders. All dogs, purebred or mixed breed, have genetic defects. The purebred dog fancy’s goal to chase down and breed away from genetic diseases speaks to their level of responsibility and care for the future of their breed, not to the fact they have genetic flaws. The increasing number of recognized disorders and the development of DNA tests to find the genetic basis of these disorders is evidence breeders are increasingly intolerant of breeding dogs with genetic defects. It should not be interpreted to mean that purebred dogs have more disorders, only that we understand them better. Our current population of dogs is living longer than any previous generation. As nutrition, disease prevention and management improve, and as we embrace delaying the age of spaying and neutering, we can expect ever better longevity. One unintended consequence of this AVMA HOD document is that breeders and buyers may misinterpret how to use the DNA data. We are already experiencing a narrowing of the gene pool when well-meaning but misguided or peerpressured breeders throw “carrier” status dogs out of the breeding pool of animals. These “carrier” dogs, with autosomal recessive genetic defects can and should be used for breeding – “carrier” dogs bred to a “clear” produce only “carrier,” never “affected” offspring. When “carrier” animals are eliminated, we are making the gene pool smaller, and actually increase the

26

Dachshund Club of America Winter 2016

risk of magnifying other genetic diseases. Additionally, when we put genetic pressure on our breeding stock, we may inadvertently increase genetic defects by selecting against certain disorders. In fact, all of us as humans have genetic flaws. In spite of the fact humans are the most outcrossed species on the planet, all of us still have some kind of genetic flaw. My mom has hip dysplasia and my dad has allergies – and they bred anyway, producing me, free of both disorders - lucky for me! We already have frighteningly small gene pools in many breeds, with some like the Otterhound, numbering under 1000 in the world, nearing extinction. Only with careful management of breeding programs and assistance from geneticists will we be able to maintain many breeds of dogs. Frozen semen that dates back to the 1970s and 1980s will be a crucial resource in restoring genetic diversity. {For those of you with frozen semen, please do

There are several broad categories of breeders, but unless we find a way to help all dog breeders manage their genetics, we as a society will no longer have a sufficient and suitable number of US bred dogs for people to love as family members, working dogs, or in competitions. not destroy it but rather work with the AKC and your breed clubs and colleagues to retain and manage this important resource.} We need to look at our purebred dogs as endangered. The only genetic material we have in each breed is already locked down, with no new incoming genetic material except for the occasional and likely undesirable mutation. Some are already proposing the “outcrossing” of breeds, not within the breed but actually bringing in the genetics of other breeds to “improve” their breed. I have spent 34 years of my veterinary career working with dog breeders. I am Chairman of the Board of the National Animal Interest Alliance, a former member of the AVMA Judicial Council, and former member of the board of the Society for Theriogenology. I too am a breeder and compete with my dogs. The breeders we work with in our 6 doctor practice in Wisconsin are kind, smart, dedicated, hard-working people who want nothing more than to breed their next generation of dogs to be healthier and better than the last generation. They spend countless hours poring over pedigrees and consulting their fellow breeders and veterinarians to determine what the next best genetic mix will be. I have NEVER met a breeder who says they want to breed a dog with a genetic defect, who suffers, and will have a short lifespan. The Society for Theriogenology and American College of Theriogenologists are the veterinary

experts in animal reproduction. They work with livestock and companion animals and their owners on a full-time basis, not only executing breedings and managing fertility of their patients, but counseling owners on the logistics and ethics of animal reproduction. In 2011, the Theriogenology groups adopted a position statement titled “The Welfare of Breeding Animals,” reprinted below. It contains language that is far more comprehensive and better crafted than this recently developed AVMA document that from outward appearances looks like an effort to stop the breeding of all dogs, purebred or mixed breed. There are several broad categories of breeders, but unless we find a way to help all dog breeders manage their genetics, we as a society will no longer have a sufficient and suitable number of U.S. bred dogs for people to love as family members, working dogs, or in competitions. As veterinarians, our small animal practitioners will go the way of the equine veterinary community when the automobile was invented. Aren’t we better off guiding dog breeders and aiding them in selecting appropriate breeding stock, rather than slamming doors shut? Rather than encouraging breeders to seek veterinary care in screening their breeding dogs, will this new proposal instead serve to drive breeders underground and breed without educated, ethical veterinary input? What will the short term and long term ramifications of this be to veterinarians and their staff, their breeder clients, and the consumers who still desire to own well-bred dogs? What will the replacement source of dogs become? Will this lead to the further legal and illegal importation of dogs from outside the United States, where there is no oversight on the quality of dogs bred and the conditions under which the dogs are raised? Aren’t we better off guiding dog breeders and aiding them in selecting appropriate breeding stock, rather than slamming doors shut? Ask your veterinarian to talk to her or his AVMA Delegate to carefully consider this proposal. Ask them to recall and redraft this proposal into one that, with appropriate veterinary oversight, is more friendly to the ongoing breeding of healthy, happy dogs within the United States by our high-quality, conscientious, skilled and educated breeders The AKC, National Animal Interest Alliance, AVMA Ethics Board, local and national breed clubs, and the 3 affiliated Theriogenology groups along with interested veterinarians can join together in drafting a more effective and useful ethical tool to guide breeders. Ask them to consider using the Position statement from the Theriogenology group (see below) or the following short statement: “The AVMA supports scientifically valid and reliable data as the basis for the responsible breeding of companion animals to minimize inherited disorders. The AVMA encourages veterinarians to continue their education in the emerging area of genetic disease causation and consequences to enable veterinarians to educate breeders, pet owners, and the public.”


SOCIETY FOR THERIOGENOLOGY’S POSITION STATEMENT ON THE WELFARE OF BREEDING DOGS: The American College of Theriogenologists and Society for Theriogenology promote the breeding of healthy, genetically superior dogs to maintain a diverse canine population that meets the needs of society for companion dogs and working dogs. The College and Society support practices to promote optimal health of all breeding dogs. Purpose-bred dogs are maintained subject to regulation by institutional and government agencies, while similar guidelines for non-institutional breeders are lacking. This position statement refers to care and management of breeding of dogs intended for personal ownership. It is the position of the ACT and SFT that: • Animals must be provided water, food, proper handling, health care, and environments appropriate to their species and use, and should be cared for in ways that prevent and minimize fear, pain, distress, and suffering. • Specifically, all breeding animals should be housed in clean, properly sized facilities that permit them to express normal behavior, include environmental enrichment, and are appropriate for stage of life. Male and female dogs may be co-housed in social units except for those times when bitches are in estrus. Specific attention to individual temperament to avoid inter-animal aggression is required. Regular observation of and interaction with dogs by handlers must occur. • Dogs should have access to a balanced diet that is appropriate for their life stage and fed to them in a manner that will permit them to maintain a body condition score (BCS) of 4 or 5 out of 9, excepting certain breeds of dogs such as sight hounds that are naturally lean in body type. Fresh water should be available. Dogs should have routine health care and disease prophylaxis including regular veterinary examination, vaccination, internal and external parasite control, dental care and coat care when applicable. • Dogs intended for breeding should be evaluated for hereditary disorders before being bred. Owners of breeding dogs should develop a breeding plan with a veterinarian to minimize or eliminate production of puppies with hereditary defects. • All dogs intended for breeding should be appropriately tested for canine brucellosis to prevent spread of this disease. At a minimum, both members

of a breeding pair should be tested prior to each breeding. All dogs intended for breeding should be regularly tested for canine brucellosis, either at the time of breeding or every six months. • Intact male dogs should be regularly evaluated by a veterinarian for prostate and testicular disease. Bitches should be regularly evaluated by a veterinarian for pyometra and mammary neoplasia. Decisions about when to spay or castrate individual dogs and bitches no longer intended for breeding should be made with the counsel of a veterinarian. • Bitches should not be bred before they are physically mature and should not be bred on the first estrous cycle without the advice of a veterinarian. • Bitches may be bred on consecutive estrous cycles if they maintain or regain their breed appropriate body condition and are deemed healthy on the basis of veterinarian examination prior to the onset of the next proestrus. ______________________________________ Dr. Marty Greer received her Bachelor of Science in 1978, her DVM in 1981 from Iowa State University and her JD in 2010 from Marquette Law School.

Canine Good Citizen continued from page 25 fast/slow paces. The dog being tested should be able to walk past other dogs, without growling or lunging. The dog should walk through a crowd of people on a loose leash. The owner should gather with three others who also have dogs, directing the dog to sit, so as to permit a

conversation to occur. The dog will allow strangers to pet him; if the stranger is carrying a backpack or computer bag, it is put on the ground before the person pets the dog. As in the Urban test, the dog should walk past trash and food without incident. Unlike in the other tests, in the CGCA, the dog is asked to do a “down” or “sit stay” at a distance from the owner, while on a 20 foot line. This distance work distinguishes this test from all of the other CGC tests. The dog will also disregard distractions and come when called from 20 feet away. Finally, the dog will enter or exit a doorway or narrow passageway, on leash, showing that he is under control.

SUMMARY: Dogs who have earned one or more of the CGC titles have had basic obedience training and show no aggression around strangers or other dogs. In fact, some homeowners’ insurance companies will offer a discounted premium upon receipt of a copy of a CGC Certificate, as this is evidence, not only that the owner is responsible, but that the dog has been tested for temperament. Check with your individual insurance company to determine if you are eligible for such a discount. For a list of CGC tests in your area, check on the AKC website under Canine Good Citizen. Tests are listed geographically by clubs. Often, the basic CGC test is offered as part of the programming at the DCA National Convention. At the time of publication, it is not certain whether there will be time available to offer the test at the 2017 DCA in Kentucky. Email me at DoxyLadyNJ@gmail.com, if interested. !

Delegate’s Report for December 16, 2016 Held in Orlando, FL by Larry Sorenson

These are the highlights of the Delegates’ Meeting; a complete set of Delegates’ Meeting Minutes is located at: http://images.akc.org/pdf/delegate_minutes/Dec 2016.pdf?_ga=1.245876354.726633159.148337 3510 Highlights from the December 16, 2016 Delegate Meeting: Voting: There was a vote on Chapter 6, Section 9, of the Rules Applying to Dog Shows, which would extend the closing time for entries to be no later than 11:59 p.m. as an option of the club. The counted vote was 151 in favor and 94 opposed. As there was not 2/3 in the majority, the amendment was not adopted. This proposal was not even close to passing. LLS Proposals to be voted on at the March Meeting. The Executive Secretary read the proposed amendment to Chapter 2, Section 3, of the Rules Applying to Dog Shows, which would enable the AKC, upon receipt of an appeal, to approve a club for the holding of a show at a site within the area of another club on a case-by-case basis, if it believes the permission of the host club has unreasonably been denied. The amendment was proposed by the Delegate Dog Show Rules Committee after the subject was referred to the committee by the Delegate body. It was put forward by the Board with a positive recommendation. It will be published in two issues of the online AKC Gazette, and you will be asked to vote on it at the March 2017 meeting. This is a big deal. It effects all-breed clubs the most, however it will have impact on all clubs. It will have the most impact in locations high density of clubs with a limited number of suitable show facilities. LLS The Executive Secretary read the proposed amendment to Chapter 14, Section 14, of the Field Trial Rules and Standard Procedures for Retrievers, which would encourage new owners of young dogs to train and participate with their dogs in AKC retriever field trials. All subsequent sections of the chapter will be renumbered.

Wooding, Redding, CT: Westminster Kennel Club* Your Delegate will consult the DCA Board on this vote! AKC is at a very important turning point. We need to start thinking about future elections and the direction of the AKC Board. (*) are the Nomination Committee selection. LLS Financial Report Next I will provide you with a financial performance report through November 30th. First, let’s summarize our year to date revenues and expenses. We have recorded $59.3 million in Total Revenue and almost $54.2 million in expenses, for an Operating Income of just over $5 million dollars. This is relatively comparable to our prior year results of nearly $55 million in Revenue with only $47 million in Expenses and an outstanding $7.6 million in Operating Income. Our Major Revenue Sources Year to Date in Registration. We have recorded $14.0 million in revenue which is an 8% increase from 2015. Our Litter Revenue of $6.8 million reflects a 7% surge. Our next largest registration revenue is that of Pedigrees. The $4.3 million total this year has increased 9%. Outside of Registrations, the next largest areas of revenue includes Recording and Event Fee. We have logged over $11 million in total revenue which is about a 3% increase. Royalties and Sponsorship Revenue of over $3 million has jumped 14%. Digital Advertising of $1.5 million has flourished by 65%! Let’s transition to an analysis of Expenses. Year over Year – costs have risen by $6.9 million or 15%. The Balance Sheet of the AKC shows long term strength. We are just shy of $144 million in Total Assets, an almost $8 million-dollar

increase from the same point last year. We are a cash flow positive organization. Finally, Total Liabilities of $67.2 million has decreased by nearly 5% and $3.4 million over the past year. The majority of liabilities are extended term in nature and include more than $63 million in pension and post-retirement benefits. I’d like to conclude this brief performance report with the phenomenal fact that our long-term net assets have increased by more than $11 million or 17% over the past year! Thank you everyone on the Board, Staff, and the Delegate Body for contributing to AKC’s outstanding achievements in 2016! The AKC recovery is still looking good. However, I still worry for our sport. The financials are doing better however, we are NOT bringing NEW People into the sport. The aging of breeders and exhibitors continues. LLS

Things happening with AKC Notes from the AKC Board Minutes and what’s new at AKC on the AKC website. Business Development Royalties on AKC licensed products have grown by 40% from the second to the third quarter and is tracking 21% higher year over year to date. In addition, an update of our packaging is underway to make it more consistent, contemporary, and appealing to consumers. I have seen AKC logo items show up in stores. LLS Sweepstake Judges The Rules, Policies and Guidelines for Conformation Dog Show Judges provides: “Effective January 1, 2009 Sweepstake/Futurity judges may not exhibit on day(s) they judge. Sweepstake/Futurity judges will continue to be able to exhibit the day before and the day after they judge. A multi-day specialty is considered one event, and the restriction will apply for the duration of the event.” A number of awards were cancelled at a show under this policy and the sweepstakes judge requested that they be reinstated. There was no motion by the Board to consider this matter. Sweepstake judges read and take heed. LLS AKC Canine College Status Update the Staff provided the Board of Directors with a status report on the progress of the AKC Canine College. The AKC Canine College successfully launched on September 27, 2016. As of the date of the report, the AKC Canine College had a total of 1,031 unique visitors. Eighty eight (88) of the 1,031 unique visitors have enrolled in a total of 1,030 courses or exams. Overall, feedback provided has been overwhelmingly positive. It is expected that by January, Breed Standard Exams for the Non-Sporting and Herding Groups will be added to the already available Toy, Terrier, and Sporting Exams. Instructional Designers are working with the


Parent Clubs to develop courses on the nine (9) breeds for which multimedia material has been gathered at various National Specialties. This is the future of AKC judging education programs. I don’t believe we will see much change in the judging approval process. LLS Concurrent Specialty Entry Limit: The Board reviewed an Event Operations Staff

recommendation to modify the entry limit for concurrent specialties to provide clubs with more flexibility in holding events. The Board policy on concurrent specialties limits clubs to 100 entries per event in both the all-breed event and the specialty event. Under the current policy, a multi-day national specialty held as a concurrent specialty would be limited to 100 total entries. Staff recommends modifying the policy from 100 total entries per event to 100

total entries per day. This would provide more flexibility to multiday national specialties held concurrently with all-breed and limited-breed events. There was no objection to this modification to the Board policy on Concurrent Specialty entry limits. Good to see some common sense. LLS

Are You Prepared for the Immediate Care of Your Dogs In Case of a Personal Emergency? While most of us have given great thought to what happens to our dogs after we die, do we also have preparations in place for sudden illness, accident, or sudden death? Having the care of our dogs in our wills is important, but before that will is read and probated, it is very important that the first persons to enter your home have the necessary information, readily available, to immediately care for you dogs. This information needs to be posted in a prominent location, normally where your dogs are kenneled.

SOME INFORMATION TO HAVE IMMEDIATELY AVAILABLE IN CASE OF EMERGENCY • A list of at least three people who are authorized to take your dogs with them if necessary. You can have more if you prefer. This should include all phone numbers, addresses, and e-mail addresses of the individuals. The individuals should be listed in the order to which you prefer the dogs released. • The crate for each dog should have that dog’s name on the crate. • A list containing the following information for each dog: • A brief description of each dogs physical appearance. • The dog’s call name, and registered name. • The dog’s age and weight.

• The type and location of food the dog is on, how much they are given, and the daily feeding schedule. If any supplements are given, be it something as simple as yogurt, they also need to be listed. • If the dog is on any type of medication, that medication should be listed, along with its locations and the medication protocol. This includes Heartworm Preventive and any flea/tick treatments. • A description of each dogs temperament and any special considerations. • If you have multiple dogs a compatibility list should be provided. • A description of each dogs daily exercise routine. • A list of any special considerations necessary for the care of dogs, such as deafness, impaired vision, and other physical ailments. None of us want to think of someone having to suddenly come in to take care of our dogs, but the above basic information will ensure that should the need arise, your dog’s basic needs and routine can be provided for without traumatic interruption.
