I always had to remind myself that the object was never to hunt down and kill the rabbit, only to trail it by scenting, making the correct turns and checks that the rabbit made when the beaters pushed it out to the brush to make it run. Boy, it was tempting to just take off and try to catch that little guy! I was so excited about scenting rabbits that I don’t even remember who my bracemate was! No matter...we had to run both dog stakes before our class, anyway. It was now 8 am and the gallery of beaters and excited handlers assembled at the gates to the grounds to start the trials.

by Claire Mancha As many of you field trialers know, we on the west coast run our field trials on open land. Apparently beagle clubs never caught on in the wild, wild west as they did in other regions of the US. These open grounds are usually a pretty good arrangement for us in the Pacific Northwest as there is little or no work involved in the maintenance of the grounds by the using clubs. Increasing the rabbit population and carving grids in my local grounds has been an obsession of mine ever since I saw the luxurious beagle grounds back in the Midwest. My poor roommates have spent many weekends with me chain sawing and weed eating the local flora...

Welcome to the “Health and Welfare” segment of the Newsletter. It is hoped that DCA members will submit ideas for this section of the magazine as well as articles about experiences pertaining to the healthcare of their dogs that will be of interest to other readers.

Please send ideas, suggestions and articles to: Charlotte Borghardt, DCA Health & Welfare Committee, P.O. Box 1126, Sierra Vista, AZ 85636-1126, teckelhofaz@yahoo.com

Report on AKC/CHF Parent Club Canine Health Conference submitted by Charlotte Borghardt, Chairman, DCA Health Committee I was the DCA representative to the Canine Health Conference from 12 – 14 August 2011. This is a biennial conference held in St Louis, MO to discuss various health issues and new innovations in the field of canine health research. This year, the majority of topics were cancer related. I will write separate article for the cancer related topics. However, there were other topics discussed as well such as: The History of Veterinary Medicine and Canine Research, Coping with Stress, Canine Degenerative Myelopathy, AKC Breeder of Merit Program and also an update on the health of the 9-11 Search and Rescue dogs. Coping with Stress: Dr. Arleigh Reynolds, is a Nestle Purina Nutrition Scientist in Salcha, Alaska. His study used sled dogs based in Alaska. To say that this presentation was interesting is an understatement. The stress factor in the dogs in this study was the use of

exercise. Dr. Reynolds found that moderate exercise improves the immune system; however, extreme exercise impairs the immune systems. There were three Immune Enhancing supplements studied: • Probiotics – These must be primarily live organisms and need to be administered in large amounts (8-10 CFU per dog per day). They help the immune system to work better. Studies have shown that some dead bacteria may be as effective as live bacteria and the dead also becomes nutrients for the live bacteria. Probiotics clear up diarrhea faster and more effectively than any antibiotics unless there is a systemic reason for the diarrhea. • Immuno biologics (EBC and Colostrum) stimulate the immune system to function at a higher level of competence. Egg Biologic Compounds (EBC) are from hens that have been immunized against potential pathogens. The EBC stabilizes the gut microflora and lowers potential for diarrhea, infection and intestinal inflammation. Colostrum was shown to increase the stability of micro flora to prevent diarrhea and also increased titers from vaccines for a better vaccine response. • Antioxidents – Vitamin E and C were found to dampen the effects of training. Do NOT supplement these vitamins!! Exercise Dachshund Club of America

encourages the body to make its own antioxidents. Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) – Diagnosis and Treatment – There is no known cause of IBD. Studies suggest that interplay between genetic factors and entire bacteria are crucial for development of this disease. The clinical signs include vomiting, diarrhea and weight loss and histopathologic lesions of inflammation that may involve the stomach, small intestine or colon. IBD diagnosis is one of exclusion – rule everything else out. Treatment includes both dietary and pharmacologic interventions as well as therapeutic manipulation of the enteric microbiota through the use of antibiotics, prebiotics and probiotics. IBD is similar to Krohn’s disease or colitis in humans. Canine Degenerative Myelopathy – This disease was first discovered in German Shepherd Dogs in 1973. It is a spontaneously occurring, adult-onset progressive disease that leads to paralysis and death. Most dogs are at least 8-years-old before they show clinical signs. The initial clinical signs are upper motor neuron asymmetric spastic weakness and general proprioceptive ataxia in the pelvic limbs. That eventually leads to paralysis. Dog owners often elect euthanasia within a year of diagnosis. A


definitive diagnosis of Dm can only be accomplished postmortem. This disease is very similar to Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (Lou Gehrig’s disease) in humans. While they are still studying other factors that may cause DM, the DNA test may show those “at risk” dogs but not necessarily those who will “get it.” AKC Breeder of Merit Program - Formulating the Breeder of Merit Health Criteria – The AKC Breeder of Merit program honors breeders/exhibitor’s dedication and hard work as they continue to produce dogs that are healthy, capable and beautiful. AKC is not

pushing to “raise the bar” in the parent club requirements for health testing. This program is to recognize those breeders who “go the extra mile” in ensuring that their dogs are health tested and the parent clubs are responsible to setting the health testing criteria. Granted that not all canine diseases have DNA or health testing available, but the minimum requirement should be the CHIC requirements for each breed. NOTE: At this time, DCA has no health testing requirements in spite of the fact that we do participate in the CHIC program. See DCA Newsletter “Winter

2010” for CHIC program information. Results of Study of 9-11 Search and Rescue Dogs – AKC contributed almost $500,000 to fund a study on the long term health impacts on 95 search and rescue dogs that had been deployed to the WTC, Pentagon and New Jersey landfills. Researchers also used a control group of SAR dogs that had not been deployed to these sites. The main result was that there were no significant increases in health issues of the deployed dogs as opposed to the non-deployed dogs. They were not developing the respiratory problems as their human counterparts. !

Dog Owners Live Longer, Are Happier & Healthier Academic research has revealed that dog owners are happier, healthier and likely to live longer. Whilst it has been established for some time that pet ownership makes people happier, it has now been shown that the benefits of owning a dog outstrip those of cat or any other animal. A psychologist from Queen’s University, Belfast, said dog owners tended to have lower blood pressure and cholesterol. Writing in the British Journal of Health Psychology, she says that regular “walkies” may partly explain the difference. Dr. Deborah Wells reviewed dozens of earlier research papers which looked at the health benefits of pet ownership.

In some cases, the research even ventured as far to suggest the social support offered by an animal is greater than the support than another human could offer. She confirmed that pet owners tended in general to be healthier than the average member of the population. As well as lower blood and cholesterol levels, dog-owners suffered fewer minor ailments and serious medical problems than owners of other pets such as cats. It has been believed for some time that dogs can assist people in recovery from serious illnesses such as heart attacks, and act as “early warning” to detect an approaching epileptic seizure. This research adds further strength to the claim. Dogs as Stress Relief Dr. Wells was not totally sure why, exactly, dogs are so beneficial to our health: “It is possible that dogs can directly promote our well-being by buffering us from stress, one of the major risk factors associated with ill-health. The ownership of a dog can also lead to increases in physical activity and facilitate the development of social contacts, which may enhance both physiological and psychological human health in a more indirect manner.”

Genetics Revisited submitted by Jeanne Rice

COAT VARIETY BREEDING POSSIBLITIES Wirehair coat is dominant over Smooth and Longhair coats. Smooth coat is dominant over Longhair coats Longhair is a recessive and can only produce longhairs. (Longhairs cannot carry wire or smooth genes) (Note: there are modifiers that can influence the texture and length of the coat in each variety, but we are only going to deal with the coat variety here.) What we see as the dog’s coat variety is known as the phenotype. What

[Note: These figures represent the lifetime averages for breeding. It is possible to have different percentages in different litters, depending on how Mother Nature decides to combine the genes at the time of conception. The chances, in addition to being over a lifetime, are also chances per puppy, the chances are not nesessarily per litter.] Also, according to “Principles of Genetics� by Sinnott, Dunn & Dobzhansky, since the dominant gene masks the recessive gene, we still have a 1.96% possibility of the recessive gene persisting into the 100th generation.


FIELD TRIALS 101: A DACHSHUND’S EYE VIEW OF NOSEWORK By DC Siddachs Carmen MW (“Carmen”), With Contributions by John Merriman “It’s time,” I thought to myself as I eyed my best friend and handler, John. I had been waiting patiently for him to wake up as he slept in our motel bed with his arm around me under the covers. “It’s time.” I stared at John’s sleeping face hoping–almost daring–him to wake up and begin another glorious day of field teamwork. Finally, after almost an eternity of waiting, John opened one eye in my direction. My tail started thumping. “Good morning, Carmen...I LOVE you!” he sighed. “Wanna hunt for rabbits?” I froze. Now, THAT’S what I wanted to hear! I leapt on his chest, and began licking his face madly as the 6 am alarm sounded. After his laughing and my barking subsided, we began our field trial rituals and preparations. I jumped off the bed and ran into my crate while John got my food. (I love that part.) He turned on the local weather as I ate ravenously. “Great!” I thought. “Another beautiful day for scenting....BRISK but beautiful.” (Brisk weather usually means better scenting since coldness holds scent longer.) John couldn’t move fast enough to get us ready as far as I was concerned. But soon he put on that awful denim jacket and loaded up the car, and we were on our way–one of us in a crate–to the beagle club. I know the way by heart, and I know how long it takes to get to the beagle club’s gravel driveway... We were right on time for John’s breakfast, my ex-pen duties and the field trial roll call of dog entries. Judging from all the other dogs, cars and RVs, I could tell it was going to be a huge number of entries and the competition would be fierce. “I hope I get braced with you, Carmen, “barked Maui, a red standard longhair dachshund from Texas, “but not until the finals in Second Series.” (There was no mistaking that drawl in her bark.) “Me too–red girls rule!” I barked back to Maui’s ex-pen. But Maui didn’t answer; she had quickly trotted off to a corner of her pen to make a rather large deposit. Nerves, I guess. I looked away. “Excuse me, Carmen, but BOYS rule!” barked Ripper, a chocolate dapple longhair male from

Philly in the arms of his hurried owner, Alice. “We’ll see about that, Ripper, “ I said, smiling slyly. Ripper huffed indignantly. “Hey Carmen, who is that black-and-tan longhair bitch over there? She’s pretty.” asked Guinness, another longhair straining at the leash. “Oh, that’s Marie. She lives in Virginia with

her owners, Mike and Phyllis, and she’s a friend of Darter, the mini longhair down there. She’s a new Field Champion,” I replied. I stopped. And I remembered again what it took to become a Field Champion. As I listened to roll call from my ex-pen, and I heard the club members read 130 entries–the largest entry of the year–I thought about what got me to the field champion stakes at just 7 months old. I had won my required 35 points (and then some) in the three Open class trials with the three required placements, one if which had to be a First Place. Dachshund Club of America

WINTER, 2011

I always had to remind myself that the object was never to hunt down and kill the rabbit, only to trail it by scenting, making the correct turns and checks that the rabbit made when the beaters pushed it out to the brush to make it run. Boy, it was tempting to just take off and try to catch that little guy! I heard them call the bracing for each of the classes inside the clubhouse. Each class–Open Dog, Open Bitch and Field Champions–all had to have paired braces of dachshunds called in their running order. In this case, the Field Champions were split into Dogs and Bitches because of the large number of entries. After bracing was completed, both judges in each class were introduced. My class of Field Champions had judges Sharon from Louisiana and Tracy from Texas...I like them...they are very nice, and I was excited to get started, even though my friend Brooke, a standard smooth from Massachusetts would not be coming. She had been the # 1 Nationallyranked Field Champion for the last two years. I guess her owner, Michael, had to work again. I was so excited about scenting rabbits that I don’t even remember who my bracemate was! No matter...we had to run both dog stakes before our class, anyway. It was now 8 am and the gallery of beaters and excited handlers assembled at the gates to the grounds to start the trials of the Open Dog and Field Champion Dog classes in separate fields. Some handlers were ready, and others were frantically putting slip-leads on their dogs in order to release them later in competition. I waited in my ex-pen impatiently as John went out to beat for rabbits in the Field Champion Dog class. Ashley from Texas and Randy from Virginia were the judges, and they had their work cut out for them. Each brace of champions was better than the next! The beaters went bravely through the brush, and the rabbits went running as they came. Each pair of dogs was put down on the scent line and the judges gave instructions to the dogs’ handlers each time. After each of the 19 dogs finished competing in First Series, the Field Marshall, (the liason between the gallery, beaters, handlers and the judges) announced which of the highest-scoring continued on page 16...

FIELD TRIALS 101 continued from page 14...

dogs would advance to the finals in Second Series. In this case, the champions called back were Ripper, Cash, Duditz (all longhairs from Pennsylvania) and Solomon (a mini smooth from Indiana), and it was a fight to the finish, with each handler positioning themselves to get the best vantage point and position for the dogs to start...and instead of numerical scoring, the dogs were judged on simple defeats over the other dogs. Ranking was determined on the defeats for each series, and ending when no other bracing combinations were needed, and the winners were determined. This stake ended in the order that they were called back, with Ripper winning First Place and qualifying to go on to compete against whoever would win the Field Champion Bitch Stake. That’s where I come in again...but more about that in a minute... Everyone broke for lunch, and the rest of us dogs spread the word that Ripper won, and the winner of the Open Dog stake was Mister, a standard smooth from Ohio, owned by John’s friend Ann. John and I really like the sportsmanship at field trials, and everyone was congratulating the winners at lunch...but I wish John would give me bananas more often...I love them! Soon it was time to go out the field to compete, and John took me out of my ex-pen. “Good luck, Caaaaahmen,” barked my friend Darter. “Good luck to you, too Daaaaahter!” I barked back to her.....she’s a nice little black and tan longhair bitch, and pretty fierce in the field too. I love seeing her at trials. She’s so small that she could fit in a toaster, but she’s a blast. Then it was my turn to compete after the beaters spotted a rabbit and yelled “Tally Ho!” My bracemate and I were put down on the line by our handlers at the request of the judges, who gave us instructions. Once I had the scent, John let my slip lead go out of my collar, and I was free to hunt up the rabbit with my nose. I got the scent right away, and then turned left, and then right again. I zoomed past an intersection of paths, and then had to go back and turn left to follow the scent again. I raced through several changes of cover–thorns, tall grass and paths of low grass...soon I knew I was right on the rabbit and I gave out my special hunting bark to let John know I found it. I really LOVE this part!!!!! I have no idea where my bracemate went, but when the judges called for us to be picked up, she was already back at her handler’s feet! John had me quit hunting and do a “down” for him to signify that this part was over. I had to come back. I hate that part. Nevertheless, all 29 Field Champion Bitches completed First Series, and once again the Field Marshall announced the highest scorers based on skill and accuracy. Four were called back, and I was in second place to Marie, the new

Field Champion! My friend Maui was called back with Guinness, so I was the only wirehaired dachshund among the three longhairs. I knew I had to move fast and accurately since we were scored on defeats now...that Marie needed to watch out–I was ready! “Tally Ho!” Game on again...this bitch meant business... Marie and I were released into the thick brush, and as we were moving, the rabbit bolted out onto the grass path. Marie stayed in the brush, but I swiftly scented my way out and found the rabbit! That was all I needed to win that brace. Now it was up to Marie to hold off Maui to secure my First Place standing. She did, after defeating Guinness earlier. The Field Marshall consulted with the judges and called “Field Trial!” and announced my win over Marie (2nd), Maui (3rd) and Guinness (4th). They also named a non-pointed NBQ (5th place) but I never remember who that one was. Sorry. I do remember that I, as the winner, had to get ready to run against Ripper who won the FC Dog stake. And whoever won that would compete against Mister, the winner of the Open Dog stake for Absolute, the Best in Trial nonregular grand prize award. (First Place in the Open Bitch class of 50 entries was withheld...I don’t think those judges made too many friends that day...I’m just sayin’...) Anyway, Ripper and I sized each other up as the beaters tried to get a rabbit for us. After about 20 minutes, a “Tally Ho!” came and we were off and running again. I never heard the judges’ instructions this time–I hope John did, but I was outta there as soon as he screamed “Find it!”....Ripper and I had our noses down again, desperately searching for scent once again. Sniffing, panting, drooling, leaping, slithering, and running all out... This was a very tough brace, but I finally broke through and left Ripper still searching... “Girls still rule, Ripper, “ I smiled as I cornered the rabbit. I crouched, ready to pounce. (I love that feeling...) Mercifully, the judges called for us to be picked up, and another rabbit at my disposal got to live...sigh... So, since I won that brace for Best Field Champion, I had to go against Mister, the awesome smooth Open Dog winner for the Absolute prize and the 8˝ bronze plaque. The beaters lined up again, and forged ahead to find one last rabbit for us. It seemed like it took forever. The beaters sang and joked and did anything they could to keep the line moving and working. Our adrenaline was pumping and I thought I would explode. My heart was in my ears, and the excitement level was beyond the moon, as it appeared dimly in the sky. “Tally Ho!” OK, this was it...take no prisoners...Momma needs a new pair of shoes...it’s Miller time...it’s do or die now...the moment of truth...and a whole lot of other cliches filled my little mini Dachshund Club of America

brain...then...I found the scent. THE BITCH IS BACK! I sprang into action, taking each turn with grace and speed, and thinking of John’s encouraging words the moment before. “You can do it, Carmen,” he whispered. “I LOVE you.” It’s amazing what love can do. From the moment my breeder Sidney held me to this very day with John, I have felt loved. I felt like I had wings as I scented that rabbit...I love to work, but I work out of love...and John’s love gave me wings that day. “Pick them up!” the judges shouted. Then silence. I did a “down” and John came to hold me...very tightly. The judges conferred, and then motioned for the Field Marshall to approach. After a moment, he walked to the gallery and announced. “Field Trial!” It was all over now...but who won? Silence. The Field Marshall continued. “Congratulations to...CARMEN!” I never know what to do when this happens, but John held me high in the air so that about 50 beaters, handlers and judges could all see me, and he exclaimed: “This one’s for Sidney!” And then a huge round of applause erupted spontaneously, and I saw my friends Auggie and Dixie, Odie and Trooper, Buster, Quilla, Solo, Moseby, Nimitz, Oslo, Sprite and all the rest with their handlers smiling broadly. I am glad he did that, because Sidney, my breeder, died six days later. She was thrilled when John called her that night and told her what happened. I just wanted to do a good job, and have fun...and oh, yeah: it was my birthday...really...I couldn’t ask for anything better. So, John and I went back to the motel after dinner and the awards ceremony that night. We cuddled, and John went to sleep next to me. And me? I couldn’t go to sleep quite yet. I was too excited about the other upcoming trials in the next two days. I had to stay awake and wait for John to open one eye in the morning as I kept thinking, “Its time.” Yeah...it’s time...the time of my life. _______________________________________

Bio– Carmen is a 5 year old red mini wirehaired Dual Champion dachshund bitch bred by the late Sidney Stafford and owned, trained, and handled by John Merriman. She has been the #1 mini dachshund Field Champion for 3 years in a row. Carmen has set several national records, and is one of 12 dachshunds to surpass the 1000 field trial point mark. She is in the Top Ten of Lifetime field point earners, and she has a coffee table book out, and her own advice column, “Ask Miss Carmen: Advice from a Know-it-All Bitch.”


DC Hathor Farm’s New Attitude W, CD RA TD NA NAJ JE CA owned and handled by Meg Weis and Jean Dieden our Open exercises for obedience. But what Lois really likes to do is hunt bunnies and other rodents. She is a joy and I love her greatly. . . . now if she would only use the dog door!!!! 343434343434343434

From Jean Dieden “Lois” was a wild child puppy who met Meg Weis, her forever home, when she was “talking” at an earthdog test. A few years later Meg moved to Whidbey Island a few miles from my home, allowing me the opportunity to be close enough to visit and see her more often. Meg did all of Lois’ training, including all of her tracking. Her field work was enhanced by the abundant rabbits in and around Meg’s gardens...and Lois' fascination with each and every one! Meg’s schedule precluded her from getting to many field trials and I happily took Lois along, finishing her field championship rather handily. In 2008 she traveled with me to Dallas where I had the distinct pleasure of handling her at the DCA national tracking test where she earned her TD...with ice on her line! She spent the next few years pretty much out of the competitive field trial scene, but those home rabbits kept her interest alive! So much so that in 2010 when she came with me to the DCA field events in Chino, CA she brought home the BIG prize...Absolute Winner of the DCA national field trial! Now it's pretty much back to the gardens and the home rabbits...and an occasional wayward Beardie! Lois is a pleasure to be around, an amusing, snuggly companion, a great nose to watch while working, and an always entertaining personality. Congratulations to Meg for seeing to it that her adventures extended into so many arenas! !

From Meg Weis “Lois,” the “woo, woo dog”, that's what she is frequently called. I met Lois at an ED event and she was the most talkative of dogs. Lois loves to talk and sing and is named for a very dear friend who introduced me to dachshunds when I was a teenager. My friend was also an opera singer and Lois, the doxie, tries to be one also. Lois has shown me what a dachshund can do in the field. Jean Dieden, the co-owner, took her to field trials and for her tracking test. I had her certified for her tracking test. What an experience, I watched her body language and had to trust that she knew what she was doing!!! She is the first dog I've owned that I've tracked. Lois is such a fun dog to work with in the performance events. She has her CD, RA, CGC, CA, JE, NA, NAJ, TD. We are working on Dachshund Club of America

Not Just Another Pretty Face!

by VieVie Baird

I

fell in love with Standard Longhaired Dachshunds while on walks through the streets of Paris and LaRochelle in France. French people definitely love this breed! I knew that someday I wanted one of my own. Then, I was lucky enough to find the von Links Dachshunds web site and there I fell in love with Charles Pierre. He was the runt of a litter of five born to PBD Fabulous Flojo SL and CH Caldach’s Lord of the Isles bred by Ray Chaplin and Michael Scarbrough. At that time he was known as PBD Stinkelphritz SL with the nickname of Stinky. I began communicating with Ray in hopes of eventually becoming Stinky’s forever mom. I watched him grow, via pictures and web postings, from the little ball of fur who was hand fed by Ray and Michael to the beautiful boy that my husband and I picked up in June of 2009 at eleven weeks old. I decided on a beautiful French name for the gorgeous one. Thus began the evolution to Charles Pierre. On the drive from West Palm Beach to Tallahassee, I noticed that the little guy was very affectionate to these strangers who had just dog napped him from the only home he knew. I commented to my husband that maybe he might make a great therapy dog when he got older. True to form, as Charles Pierre grew we noticed that he never met a stranger! On walks in the neighborhood he greeted everyone as if they were his best friends. To this day he still stands in front of opened garage doors and waits to see if anyone will come out to pet him. He behaved the same way when we took him on excursions to parks, festivals, outdoor restaurants, and pet-friendly hotels. That’s when I made the decision that this

beautiful boy had a gift to share and decided to have him evaluated for a pet therapy program. The Companions for Therapy (ComForT) program based in Tallahassee, Florida (http://www.tallycomfort.org/) is a volunteer animal-therapy group affiliated with the Delta Society (http://www.deltasociety.org/). The Delta Society helps people live healthier and happier lives by incorporating therapy, service, and companion animals into their lives. ComForT provides services to retirement homes, hospitals, hospice, rehabilitation facilities, child dependency and criminal courts, schools, and libraries. There are hundreds of these volunteer groups throughout the U.S. affiliated with Delta Society. The pets are mostly dogs of all breeds, but other animals are also in the program. Cats, rabbits, and birds also make visits. ComForT even has a mule, Candy Mae Robinson, in the program! When Charles Pierre turned two years old, I decided that he was ready to begin the process of becoming a therapy dog. The first step was to pass a pre-screening with a ComForT evaluation team. I was a nervous wreck as Charles and I entered the room for the screening. Charles was his usual people dog and ran up to the evaluators and you could almost hear him say, “Pet me! Pet me!” He wagged and wiggled and let the team members love him all over. He sure brought smiles to everyone’s face! We passed the screening, and then it was on to eight weeks of classes. There were people classes where we learned how to read our pets’ signals. The most important thing I learned was to read signs of stress in Charles. The program teaches that Dachshund Club of America

WINTER, 2011

your animal’s comfort and safety are the most important things to consider when making visits. The handlers need to pay attention to their teammates at all times. The most fun were the classes where we brought our companions. We learned how to do doggie greetings before entering a facility so that all teams would be comfortable with each other. Teams also practiced what it would be like to do actual visits. Our dogs had to remain calm despite loud noises, disruptive patients, crowds of people wanting their attention, and how to maneuver through equipment that might be found in facilities. We also had to teach the dogs the command of Leave It! to insure their safety around food and medicines. Charles did really well during the classes, but I felt he needed a little extra help so that he could pass his final evaluation. We worked with a wonderful pet trainer who taught me so much about animal behavior in a kind and gentle way. Charles was now ready for his final evaluation but was I ready? The ComForT evaluation is a formal process where the team is judged on skills and aptitudes. The animal is evaluated on temperament, health, cleanliness, manners, and attitude. In each evaluation exercise the evaluators are looking at four aspects of the team’s performance: how the animal relates to the handler; how the handler relates to the animal; how the animal relates to the evaluators and assistants; and, how the handler interacts with the evaluators and assistants. The team must enjoy interactions with people in many different scenarios. Volunteers role-play as clients that a team might meet in a facility. Basic commands are demonstrated such at sit, stay, and leave it. Also the team must be able to walk past a neutral dog and handler. The neutral dog is one that the team has not interacted with before. The handler should be proactive, providing the appropriate level of commands and cues to support the animal’s performance of the exercises. I was a nervous wreck just as I was for the screening. Charles Pierre was his usual exuberant self! I was worried about our performance on two exercises, the neutral dog interaction and the stay in place. Charles P. did great during the overall examination for temperament and grooming. He flew through the role playing exercises with “clients”. He did the sit, down, and stay perfectly. Then came the neutral dog. We made it past the dog and handler without Charles P. even noticing them. I guess it helped that the neutral dog was a Chihuahua! Charles probably didn’t even see him! (Just a note here, many people have their pets screened for the program because they get along with other dogs at dog parks, etc. When they are screened the evaluators are looking for animals that interact well with people not other animals. It’s people we are going to visit so it is imperative that the pet loves people. Many animals do not make it through the initial screening because they are not people oriented.) We passed the evaluation! I was thrilled and I believe that Charles knew he had done something great! Now it was time to select


places where we would visit. I shadowed teams at an adult elder day care facility. I then decided that Charles Pierre was not suited to visit these types of facilities. Since he’s vertically challenged I knew it would be hard for patients to reach down to pet him. ComForT animals are not allowed to jump up on clients for petting. He’s also too big at thirtythree pounds for me to pick up and place in client’s laps or on their beds. We needed programs where we could sit on the floor to interact with others. I decided that programs dealing with children would be best suited for us. I am a retired educator with thirty-seven years of educational experience. The first fifteen of those years I was an elementary teacher in Pinellas County Florida. Another reason to select working with children is my recent experiences on Facebook. I joined a Facebook group that was started by a student at the elementary school where I taught in the seventies and eighties. I was flabbergasted as former students of mine began posting comments about their experiences in my classroom. I couldn’t believe some of the comments that were posted about my interactions with them so long ago! One student from the seventies said that she had been trying to locate me so that she could thank me for helping her in fourth grade. She talked about the beginning of the year and all the paperwork that was sent home for parental signatures. She said that her mother wrote a nasty note about all the paperwork. My student was afraid to return the papers because of the note. She said that when she handed them to me and I read the note, that I laughed and said that I hated all the paperwork too. She said she has always remembered that reaction and that it helped to shape her life. She is now a high school guidance counselor! There are many other posts on the site that wowed me. Just one small interaction can mean so much to a child. Maybe I could still make a small difference in a child’s life with my magical, comical teammate, Charles Pierre. Team Baird is now in the Reading Education Assistance Dogs Program (READ). The program is affiliated with the Intermountain Therapy Animals Program in Salt Lake City (http://www.therapyanimals.org/). The READ program utilizes registered therapy dogs. These dogs and their handlers volunteer in schools, libraries, and other settings. The mission is to make reading fun for kids and improve literacy skills. Charles P. and I were already certified through the Delta Society so we didn’t have to go through another evaluation. I had to attend a one-day people orientation so that we could become a certified READ team. We volunteer one day a week at a local elementary school where we read with two students for thirty minutes each. The students love visiting with Charles and enjoy reading to us. My skills as a former elementary teacher also add value to the sessions. The kids also enjoy the end of their sessions because they can have Charles do his tricks and reward him with treats! We also volunteer in the Pet Therapy in the Courts Program. The Second Judicial Circuit,

State Attorney for the Second Judicial Circuit, ComForT, and courthouse facility directors are participating in this program. We volunteer in the dependency courts in our local counties. The cases are civil cases and involve matters relating to children who have been abandoned, abused, or neglected by parents/ custodians; surrendered for adoption; or in need of some types of services. The children along with their parents/custodians are required to appear before the circuit judge. Attendance is for the court to ensure the child’s well being and to talk with age-appropriate children. Judges want the

court experience to be a positive one for all involved in the case. The ComForT teams provide a distraction from an otherwise stressful experience. The children look forward to the team’s visit. The adults also seem less stressed as they interact with partner teams. We are not allowed in the courtroom but have access to all the families who are waiting to go before the judge. Our job is to just be a comfort to the children and their family members. While developing this article my husband and I went to the Wakulla County Courthouse to take some pictures. We had a chance to meet Judge Jill C. Walker. Judge Walker is the judge who started the program for her court. She made the Dachshund Club of America

following comments about the program. She said that she could see a big difference in the tone of the proceedings since the dogs have started visiting. The waiting is less tense and worrisome, and the presence of the dogs shows that the court means for this to be a constructive experience. “The outcome we really want is better parents and better parenting,” she said. I must say that these experiences are very rewarding for me. Maybe I can say one thing that a child will remember thirty years form now! Charles Pierre just loves his time prancing around the courthouse getting all the attention from the children and their families. We have other opportunities where we can visit with children. We go to a shelter for runaways. The kids range in age from ten through seventeen. I was surprised that even the teenagers love to visit with the ComForT teams. Again, maybe I can say one thing that a child will remember thirty years from now. We also participate in special events by helping at the ComForT information booth. We meet many people with their pets who may be interested in becoming certified in the program. Of course, Charles Pierre is always ready for pets and attention from children at these events. I often wondered what I would do with all my time in retirement. I believe that I have found my niche because of my wonderful Dachshund companion, Charles Pierre. He knows when it’s time to go to work. I fill his water bottle and put on my ComForT shirt and then his tail wagging says to me, “Let’s go!” Maybe we can make a difference for one child!

W

hen I was looking to find my first Dachshund ten years ago, I had no idea what a life-changing decision getting a dog would be. I had recently witnessed a therapy dog working in our local Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital. I saw the joy on my dear friend’s face while a Border Collie lay beside her on her hospital bed. For the few moments that the dog was there, Jane forgot about the cancer ravaging her body. She died just a few days later, but before she passed she got to experience the unconditional companionship of a wonderful dog. I believe it brought her peace. As I searched for a dog, I hoped that I could find a way for my dog and I to serve the community. For this reason, I looked for a pet from good breeding. I found Francis. For the past eight years, Francis and I have competed and titled in Conformation. We have explored some obedience, agility, field trials and earthdog and have enjoyed our classes with the occasional competition in those areas. Six years ago, the local all-breed club, Channel City Kennel Club, started an AKC Canine Ambassador program. We go into elementary and pre-schools and the occasional local libraries and share the “love of the dog,” talk about responsible dog ownership and care, perform obedience demonstrations, and just plain old entertain. We have dogs of all breeds in this program, but Francis is the only Dachshund. My favorite question to ask the children is “What kind of dog is this?” They raise their

hands and offer “Hot Dog” or “Weiner Dog.” It gives me a chance to tell them a little bit about the Dachshund. Oftentimes, I think the owners of the other breeds are a bit jealous when they see the children’s delighted faces as they share the Dachshund nicknames. True to my plan, Francis became a Therapy Dog with Therapy Dogs International in 2010 and we have enjoyed some volunteer time as my work schedule permits. Through Canine Ambassadors, I heard of studies touting the positive effects of children reading aloud to dogs. Ventura County has a very successful program, but there was nothing in our immediate area. Then, just a few months ago, the Channel City Kennel Club and the Goleta Library started a new program called “Paws to Read.” The “Dog Days of Summer” have taken on new meaning in Santa Barbara this summer as the reading program has expanded to serving more children. The dogs, unlike humans, don’t judge, aren’t grading the reading and only the dog, the child and the handler can witness the magic as it happens with these children as they continue to participate weekly in the program. This program requires participants to be members of Channel City Kennel Club who have undergone finger printing and simple background checks with the local Police Department. The dogs are all good with children and they are AKC Canine Good Citizens. The children read to the dogs for fifteen or twenty minutes per child. The program already has its first success story with one Dachshund Club of America

child’s reading improving to advance him a grade level. Probably my favorite Dachshund moment of 2011 was having a great weekend with Francis in the Veteran’s Class at the Dachshund Club of California Wine Country Classic Specialty Show and then returning to our Santa Barbara home that week for our volunteer time with “Paws to Read.” I hope that other Dachshund owners consider participating in reading programs if they are available in their community and, if not, consider starting one. ! by Diane E.

HOW THE DCA OBEDIENCE AND AGILITY TOP TENS ARE CALCULATED By Holly Deeds Every year after the Obedience and Agility Top Tens are announced, I get some questions about how they are calculated and, more specifically, what one can do to earn a spot on the list with one’s own dog. The systems are fairly straightforward and anyone who is in competition has the ability to keep up with how many points their dog has earned toward the Top Ten. The number of points which are required to earn a spot on the lists will vary from year to year depending on how many dogs are out there being shown (a number that, happily, is on the increase), but the more times your dog qualifies, the better the chance that the dog will earn a ranking. The DCA Obedience Top Ten Algorithm: The Obedience Top Ten is based on the First and Foremost points a dog earns in a calendar year, with a certain number of points being credited for each qualifying score earned. The more times a dog earns qualifying scores, the more points the dog accumulates. Dogs in Open and Utility will earn these points every time they qualify; dogs in Novice will only accumulate points toward the DCA Obedience Top Ten for 60 days after they earn their Companion Dog title. At that point, they need to move up into Open to continue to accumulate points. Qualifying scores in non-regular and optional titling classes do not earn any Top Ten points; only scores in Novice, Open, and Utility count toward the DCA Obedience Top Ten.

Score:

First and Foremost Points:

170-174.5 175-179.5 180-184.5 185-189.5 190-194.5 195-198.5 199-199.5 200

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

Please note that the dog training publication Front & Finish publishes their own version of rankings in each breed; their algorithms are not the same as the DCA one, so ranking in a particular position on their list does not mean that dog would have the same ranking on the DCA list. Front & Finish does not include Novice dogs in their First and Foremost rankings at all, whereas DCA does include them as explained above. Front & Finish also publishes rankings based on Delaney points; Delaney points are based on the number of dogs defeated, and that bears no resemblance at all to the DCA algorithm. The DCA Agility Top Ten Algorithm: As with the Obedience Top Ten, the Agility Top Ten’s algorithm is based on the idea that the more times a dog earns qualifying scores, the

Dachshund Club of America

35

WINTER, 2011

more points the dog accumulates. The number of points earned depends on the dog’s score, the level of the class in which the score was earned, and whether the dog is running in standard height classes or preferred classes. Since dogs get both extra time and a lower jump height (making it less likely that bars will be knocked) in the latter, making it easier for the dog to qualify, preferred scores don’t receive as many points toward the DCA Agility Top Ten as scores from standard height classes. Here is the formula for the number of points earned in each class level: Regular Height (including FAST) Class Scoring: Novice Regular Score x 80% Open Regular Score x 90% Excellent Regular Score x 100% Preferred (including FAST) Class Scoring: Novice Preferred (Score x 80%) x 75% Open Preferred (Score x 90%) x 75% Excellent Preferred (Score x 100%) x 75% I am very grateful to Gail Binder, who puts together the Obedience Top Ten list, and John Willmore, who does the same for the Agility Top Ten, for their hard work on behalf of the dachshund community.

Providence stepped in in the guise of a crotchety and darling Beagler named Gerry Ells. I was kvetching to a wonderful basset woman about the state of the grounds and told her I wanted to mow grids in the broom at our running grounds. She told me to talk to Gerry and gave me his contact information. As it turned out it was the beginning of a beeyootiful friendship! I called him and introduced myself and apparently our mutual basset friend had already warned him, I mean told him, about me contacting him soon. He invited me up to his house that is up on a high hill very near our running grounds. He and his wife are Beaglers from way back. They were gracious and accommodating and most of all, they own a tractor with a mowing attachment! Gerry was all about mowing too! It was a wonderful day for me. I love it when a plan comes together. Gerry and I decided that all we had to do was get the OK from the city of Castle Rock where these grounds are located. This is where the saga really starts! The following is a blow-by-blow accounting of my day following my meeting with Gerry reprinted from an email I sent to all the interested parties.

s many of you field trialers know, we on the west coast run our field trials on open land. Apparently beagle clubs never caught on in the wild, wild west as they did in other regions of the US. These open grounds are usually a pretty good arrangement for us in the Pacific Northwest as there is little or no work involved in the maintenance of the grounds by the using clubs. Increasing the rabbit population and carving grids in my local grounds has been an obsession of mine ever since I saw the luxurious beagle grounds back in the Midwest. My poor roommates have spent many weekends with me chain sawing and weed eating the local flora trying to make tracking those wascally wabbits a little easier for us Pacific Northwesters. Our grounds in Castle Rock, Washington have a particularly invasive non-native plant called Scotch Broom. It makes great cover for the rabbits, but is so Claire in front of the Castle thick at our grounds that you can’t see those Rock city council. jumped bunnies run for more than a few feet. Not only does this cover make for difficult (and in my opinion inefficient) judging, it also makes seeing jumped rabbits with our tiny PNW galleries just about impossible. I had reached the end of my tolerance for these grounds.

A

1st stop: Castle Rock City Hall. The 2 women there had no idea who owned the running grounds and wanted me to go talk to the motorcycle club (next door to the grounds.) I said I wanted something a little more reliable and so they sent me down to Kelso(11 miles away) to the county records. 2nd stop: Kelso. I went to licensing which sent me to the assessor’s office. There I was helped by a very nice woman who printed me out 2 maps at a cost of 15 cents each. Good thing I had change that day because I am usually penniless. There I found that the field I am interested in is owned by 2 different entities, split diagonally across the field! I found out that the city of Castle Rock owns the portion next to the Cowlitz River. The center portion had no plat number so the nice woman couldn’t look it up. She sent me to mapping. At the mapping department the man knew exactly who owned it: the State of Washington. He told me that the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) was in charge of that area, since it was the old channel for the Cowlitz River. Apparently there was a pretty powerful flood in the 30’s which changed the course of the river! Since rivers are owned by the states, the old channel is still state property. As luck would have it, there is a DNR office in Castle Rock. 3rd stop: Back to Castle Rock to the DNR. There I found 2 women manning the office. One of them helped me and told me I had to get a hold of Brian at Aquatic management. He worked out of Olympia, but I might have to go to Chehalis. Sheesh! I went back to my car and called Brian.

These are the aerial shots of the grounds we run in. I put the grid lines in yellow to show the council members what we wanted to do.

Dachshund Club of America

This is where I wish I hadn’t. He was very interested that dogs had been playing on that field for years and years. He said I would have to submit an application ($25) and that there would have to be an investigation. I asked how long that would take and he replied “a year.” I told him to forget it, and that I would just go back to doing what we had always done and not mess with the state. He said that since he was now aware of it, blah blah. Then he said that he had no idea if “he had a dog in the fight” as he had no idea about his agency’s role in that land. I said “OK Michael Vick, how about you find out if you even own that land and then we’ll talk.

52

WINTER, 2011


4th stop: Back to Castle Rock City Hall. I told the girls “I’m baaaack!” They were very surprised to learn that the City of Castle Rock owned part of that land. They said I needed to talk to the Public Works director, Dave Vorse. They gave me his phone number, and told me he might be at his offices down the street.

CORRECTION On page 18 of the Autumn Newsletter, the very important number “80” was missed on the text for “Woody’s” Ad. Below is the correct wording.

5th stop: Blue metal buildings 2 blocks from CR city hall. Dave Vorse was there and what a sweetheart! He told me that the State leased that land to the city of Castle Rock!!! He was all over helping me and had no beef with our plans at all, but he said it would be best if I would hit a city council meeting and get everyone on board. I said “Great! Can do.” 6th stop: Back to my car to call Brian. I told him the land was leased to the city of Castle Rock and what did that mean? Was he in the picture at all? He was stumped, said he just didn’t know, and had no idea what piece of land I was talking about anyway. I said thank you very much, and hung up. I’m hoping, hoping, hoping that this bureaucrat has too much on his plate now to deal with this business. I am not calling him back and I am not sending him any application. He should just fade away, hopefully. 7th stop: Back to CR city hall. I filled out the city council meeting agenda so that my petition would be heard. I am going to make up packets for the 5 council members, the mayor, the local paper, Dave Vorse and a couple extra. Dave said he would contact risk assessment. I have to have the packets there tomorrow. Sheesh. I guess I’ll take the girls (dogs) running this time. SO, as it stands, we are scheduled to be heard on August 8th at the city council meeting at 7:30 PM. I will find out where it is being held and I hope you all can come!!! I’d say that “perseverance” is one feature in which I am not lacking. I made up my beautiful packets for distribution at the meeting. I had color maps of the area with our intended work area highlighted, I had a statement of benefit to the community showing how many weekends a year the grounds were used by the Beaglers, the bassets and the dachshunds, and how we dumped tons of cash on their town every year, I had our insurance papers, and I had Gerry! As it turned out, the members of the city council of Castle Rock were all on board with our plans. They were a friendly bunch and turned us loose with their blessing. As my bad luck would have it, I was unable to attend the mowing party, but Gerry took pictures for me. Gerry hadn’t put as many lanes as I pushed for as he was concerned about coyotes using the lanes to hunt the rabbits. BUT we had lanes enough and we were ready for the next 5 weekends of trials! The Beaglers were going to test the lanes out and the doxie people (well me and our club president Dan) were going to be there for the inaugural runs. Game on! I must say, attending a beagle trial was quite refreshing to me. It

The beaglers all gather 'round to watch a run.

They all crowd around to watch when a dog is released, people are talking the whole time and there is no complaining. Well, not much anyway! I guess beagles are less distractible than our dachshunds? As far as how our lanes worked, the spotters up ahead were calling tally ho left and right so I’m guessing they served their purpose. We had a great time with the Beaglers and we had a great time at our own club’s field trials in September. I heard lots of comments about how great the lanes were at a later This is Mel Stewart, AKC Field dachshund field trial in Director, Hounds, our AKC rep for our October. It was sweet music 1st field trials in one of the mowed to my ears! Until we get a lanes.

These are the highlights of the AKC Board Meeting; a complete set of Board Meeting Minutes are available at: http://www.akc.org/ pdfs/about/board_minutes/1111.pdf Points of interest from the AKC November Board Meeting: FINANCIAL REPORT Jim Stevens, Chief Financial Officer, participated in this portion of the meeting. Total revenues for the month of October 2011 were $4 million. Total operating expenses during the month were lower than 2010. Due to the improved performance of the stock markets in October, our investments generated a gain of $2.6 million during the month. BUDGET The Board considered the approval of the 2012 Budget. The proposed budget was discussed in great detail. Emphasis was placed on increased efficiency and cost savings in all areas. Continued reductions were also discussed. Following a motion by Ms. Scully, seconded by Dr. Davies, it was VOTED

study the impact of the number of shows on the financial well-being of existing clubs. Staff recommended that the Board remove the moratorium on new All-Breed clubs with limitations: Following a motion by Mr. Arnold, seconded by Ms. Scully, it was VOTED (Mr. Arnold, Ms. Scully, Mr. Kalter, Mr. Ashby, Mr. Menaker, Dr. Smith, Dr. Davies, Mr. Amen, Dr. Battaglia, Dr. Newman; opposed Dr. Garvin; absent Mr. Gladstone, Mr. Goodman) to consider the matter at this meeting, waiving the usual prior notice requirement. Following a motion by Dr. Garvin, seconded by Mr. Ashby, it was VOTED unanimously (absent Mr. Gladstone and Mr. Goodman) to remove the moratorium on new All-Breed clubs, with the following limitations: 1. Availability of open weekends - approval of new All-Breed clubs requires at least four (4) open weekends within the calendar year in that AKC division and no shows within 300 miles of the territory of the new club on the show date. However, no such restriction will apply to clubs in Divisions 10, 11, and 12 (Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico. 2. New all-Breed clubs are encouraged to invite local Group or Specialty clubs to join with them to improve event attendance.

Interesting report but not much real information. LLS Signature Requirements of All Dam Owners on Litter Registrations: Margaret Poindexter, AKC Staff, was present during this portion of the meeting. Charles Kneifel and David Roberts, AKC Staff, participated in this portion of the meeting via video conference. There was a discussion on possibly amending the current Board policy which requires the signature of all dam owners to register a litter. No action was taken at this time. More on this subject later, I hope. LLS PUBLICATIONS Daphna Straus, AKC Staff, advised the Board of a number of AKC books including “Meet the Breeds” and individual Meet the Breed books prepared in cooperation with Parent Clubs for the Labrador Retriever, Shih Tzu, and German Shepherd Dog. These books are published by BowTie Press and are sold at $12.95 each. First time I have heard of this.

HOST CLUB DCA 2013 For the first time the proposal of a club (Cascade Dachshund Club) to host DCA was turned down by the Board of DCA. This was a very difficult decision which took very thoughtful consideration by all the members of the Board. The Board has total confidence in the abilities of the Cascade members to put on a DCA National. The only problem was the contract and the cost therein. DCA has to look at the total cost of a contract before accepting and signing. The Board has to look at the food minimum, total minimum room nights with and without attrition, and the extra charge for the ballrooms and meeting rooms if any. The total cost of the average contract that DCA has signed in the past has been between $50,000.00 & $60,000.00. The following is a comparison of DCA Nationals 2011, 2012, and the proposed 2013 contracts.

HILTON BELLEVUE, Washington 2013 Rooms 368 x $149 before tax Food + service & tax $6000.00 + service & tax Ballroom $21,000.00 + service & tax TOTAL OLYMPIA RESORT, Wisconsin 2011 Rooms 450 x $114 before tax Food (no ballroom cost) $3,000.00 + service & tax TOTAL CALLAWAY GARDENS, Georgia 2012 Rooms 450 x 109 before tax No food or ballroom cost TOTAL

$54,832.00 7,890.00 27,615.00 $90,337.00

$51,300.00 3,750.00 $55,050.00

This year (2011), DCA’s contract was similar to having a host show and the DCA National because DCA “hosted” a show before the national. The total contract as written was $55,050.00 for the entire week, and there was a profit of over $13,000.00, which is a very good profit. The Board likes at least to try to break even on the National. The 2013 contract is between $30,000.00 & $35,000.00, higher than any contract DCA has ever signed. Cascade presented projected incomes, but it was only projected and was inadequate to cover the losses expected by both clubs. The Board has to make decisions based on facts and past nationals, not hypothetical projections, especially in this economy. The room rate for the Bellevue Hilton in Washington (2013) is $170.00 with tax, which is much higher than any previous DCA National. A Red Lion Hotel immediately next door has rates around $79.00 plus tax, and the Board’s legitimate fear was that people would logically choose the Red Lion, and DCA would suffer the loss of room revenue at the Hilton. Everything in the contract is much higher than any contract in the past. Cascade offered to give DCA $25,000.00 of their $30,000.00 treasury to cut losses. One of the purposes of hosting DCA is to increase the host club’s treasury, not to almost completely deplete their treasury. The Board has fiduciary obligations to the organization and is completely accountable to the DCA Membership. The Board just could not support a contract (Hilton Bellevue 2013) as costly as this one. There was never a concern as to whether the Cascade Dachshund Club members had the ability to hold the shows, but it was just the just the cost.

WINTER, 2011


AKC News continued from page 59 Clubs are currently restricted from advancing to licensed club status by the moratorium imposed by the Board of Directors. The Board reviewed a proposal to permit these clubs to advance to licensed status with restrictions similar to those approved by the Board for specialty clubs to advance. Following a motion by Dr. Smith, seconded by Mr. Arnold, it was VOTED (unanimously; absent Mr. Gladstone and Mr. Goodman) to remove the moratorium on new Group clubs with the following limitations: 1. Group clubs will not be approved within a 100 miles of the territory of another club of the same Group. 2. Group clubs will only be licensed to hold Group shows in conjunction with another Group show, All-Breed shows or clusters. 3. Any newly forming or club ready for licensing will only be approved with the proviso they agree any future events must meet the adjacency and/or integrated specialty requirement as stated in (2). 4. Any local Group club licensed or formed during this period will be subject to any final policies that result from the moratorium study period. This is another one to watch. LLS Realignment of Point Schedule Divisions The Board considered a Staff proposal to realign the point schedule divisions. The goal was to minimize the differences in average entries among the states in the current Divisions. The proposal would create the following Divisions. 1. CT, MA, ME, NH, RI, VT 2. DE, NJ, PA, NY 3. DC, MD, NC, TN, VA, WV 4. FL, GA, SC 5. IN, OH, KY 6. IA, KS, MO, NE 7. OK, TX, CO 8. OR, WA 9. CA, AZ 10. AK 11. HI 12. PR 13. ID MT, ND, NV, SD, UT, WY, NM 14. AL, AR, LA, MS 15. IL, MI, MN, WI Following a motion by Dr. Davies, seconded by Dr. Smith, it was VOTED (unanimously; absent Mr. Gladstone and Mr. Goodman), to consider the matter at this meeting, waiving the usual advance notice requirement. Following a motion by Dr. Smith, seconded by Ms. Scully, it was VOTED (unanimously; absent Mr. Gladstone and Mr. Goodman), to approve this realignment, effective with the May 2012 point schedule.

This is an attempt to make the point schedule more balanced. LLS Points for Reserve at a National Specialty The Board considered a proposed amendment to Chapter 16, Section 1 of the Rules Applying to Dog Shows as follows: At one National Specialty each year, specified by the AKC Breed Parent Specialty Club at the time the event application is submitted to AKC, the dog designated Reserve Winners Dog and the bitch designated Reserve Winners Bitch will be awarded a three-point major, provided that the number of dogs competing in the regular classes of the reserve Winner’s sex totals at least twice the number required for a five point major in the region in which the event is held. In counting the number of eligible dogs in competition, a dog that is disqualified, or that is dismissed, excused or ordered from the ring by the judge, or from which all awards are withheld, shall not be included. This proposed amendment was submitted by the Progressive Dog Clubs. During the discussion a liaison to the Delegate Dog Show Rules Committee, reported that this committee is unanimously opposed to this amendment. Following a motion by Dr. Davies, seconded by Dr. Battaglia, it was VOTED (affirmative: Dr. Davies, Mr. Kalter, Dr. Newman, Mr. Amen, Dr. Battaglia, Mr. Arnold; opposed: Mr. Menaker, Ms. Scully, Dr. Smith, Dr. Garvin, Mr. Ashby; absent: Mr. Gladstone, Mr. Goodman) to approve this amendment. There was a motion by Mr. Amen, seconded by Mr. Menaker, and it was VOTED (affirmative, Mr. Amen, Mr. Menaker, Dr. Smith; Ms. Scully, Mr. Ashby, Dr. Garvin; opposed: Mr. Arnold, Mr. Kalter, Dr. Davies, Dr. Battaglia, Dr. Newman; absent Mr. Gladstone, Mr. Goodman) to reconsider the question Following a motion by Mr. Amen, seconded by Ms. Scully, it was VOTED (affirmative, Mr. Amen, Ms. Scully, Mr. Kalter, Mr. Menaker, Dr. Battaglia, Dr. Garvin, Mr. Ashby, Dr. Newman, Dr. Davies, Mr. Arnold; opposed: Dr. Smith; absent: Mr. Gladstone, Mr. Goodman) to send the proposed amendment forward to be read at the December 2011 Delegate meeting, for a vote in March 2012, with no Board recommendation. As I said before this one is on the fast track. I believe this will pass. LLS Adjustment to Championship Points Computation The 2012 dog show points schedule was reported to the Board in accordance with the May 1995 Board Policy: “A three-member Staff committee, appointed by the President, is given the authority to approve the annual dog show point schedule, which upon completion, is to be reported to the Board.” In order to increase the number of majors available at All-Breed shows, Staff proposed the specialty shows be removed from the calculation of the point schedule. The Board had concerns about the number of Dachshund Club of America

74

WINTER, 2011

additional majors that would be created, and indicated that it would need additional statistical data to evaluate this proposal. This is very interesting. LLS Application Fee for Open Show and 4-6 Month Puppy Competition The Staff proposed an application fee for the Open Show and the 4 to 6 Month Puppy Competition sanctioned events at $25 to cover the expense associated with processing the applications. The Board was advised that unless it had any objection, this fee would be instituted and there was no objection. The OPEN Show is the new match. LLS JUDGING OPERATIONS There was a discussion on the Judging Approval Procedure adopted by the Board at the October 2011 meeting, specifically with regard to the Judges Review Committee described on page three. Following a motion by Mr. Ashby, seconded by Dr. Smith, it was VOTED (unanimously; absent Mr. Gladstone, Mr. Goodman) to change the composition of the Committee as follows: The Judges Review Committee as referenced within this policy is defined as a committee of five members to be comprised of the COO of the American Kennel Club, the Vice President of Dog Show Judges whom shall be Chair, one AKC Executive Field Representative appointed by the CEO for a two year term, with a four year limit, one Senior Judge (at least 20 years judging experience and having at least three groups), and one designated person both of whom will be recommended by the CEO and confirmed by the Board of Directors. The last two appointees shall not serve more than two terms and shall not be a member of AKC staff or Board of Directors and are subject to Board of Directors confirmation if recommended by the CEO for a second term. Who knows where this is going, however it should be decided soon. LLS Therapy Dog Program Status Report Staff presented a status update on the first four months of the AKC Therapy Dog Program. As of October 27 (exactly 4 months since launch) the AKC has issued 1,686 Therapy Dog titles, with 151 different breeds having earned the title. The AKC has acknowledged 88 Therapy Dog certification organizations. Dogs located in all 50 states plus Canada and Puerto Rico have been awarded the THD title. This has been a very successful program. LLS Liaisons to Board Committees The Board considered a request from the Chairs of the Standing Delegate Committees to reinstate Staff liaisons, who would attend the Committee meetings. The request included an offer by the Committees to give up 25% of their $200 per meeting stipend for every Committee


member to cover the cost of Staff travel. While continuing to provide Board liaisons to the committees, the additional AKC Staff liaisons were discontinued by the Board for both economic and productivity reasons. The latter was particularly critical because of the number of additional days this meeting attendance required senior Staff to be out of the office. Applicable Staff has always been and continues to be available to review any Committee proposals in advance of their meetings as necessary. There was no motion to reverse the previous Board decision. This is a cost-cutting move. LLS Meet the Breeds Gina DiNardo reported on the “Meet the Breeds” in New York and in Orlando. In New York, there will be booths for 161 breeds and 50 cat breeds, and ticket sales are well ahead of last year. In Orlando, available booth space is completely filled and there will be 170 breeds represented. Ticket sales for the show are going very well, and the arena is almost sold out for the evening program. A good event, however I would like to see it done in other parts of the country. LLS Group Realignment The Board discussed the Realignment Committee’s recommendations. They included rule changes to go from seven to eleven groups, and to name the various groups. The Committee also recommended how the groups should be populated, but that decision would rest with the Board. Following a motion by Mr. Amen, seconded by Dr. Smith, the Board voted (affirmative: Mr. Amen, Dr. Smith, Dr. Davies, Dr. Battaglia, Mr. Menaker, Dr. Newman, Mr. Ashby, Mr. Kalter, Ms. Scully; Mr. Arnold; opposed: Dr. Garvin; absent: Mr. Gladstone, Mr. Goodman) to accept the Committee’s recommendations and to approve the necessary rule changes. Staff was directed to prepare the necessary paperwork to forward this to the Delegates for a read and vote. This would include a detailed Q & A. If adopted by the Delegates, the effective dates would be no earlier than 2014, and could be as late as 2015.

CREATING YOUR DOG’S DISASTER SURVIVAL KIT submitted by William Given

ogs are an important part of our lives and many of us consider them a member of the family. They depend on us for so very much. It is our responsibility to keep them safe and that includes during emergencies and natural disasters. In the event of an emergency such as a fire, tornado or other natural disaster, you may be forced to evacuate your home. Being prepared is often critical to survival. Assembling your dog’s survival kit today will give you some peace of mind and save precious minutes if or when an emergency does occur.

D

To create a disaster survival kit for your dog, include the following items in a sturdy container. I have two dogs and prepared my kit using a Rubbermaid 18 gallon storage box.

• A leash and collar or harness. • Bottles of fresh water, enough for three days. • A several day supply of dog food and treats, along with information on your dog’s eating habits and food allergies. • Any medications your dogs is on, in a waterproof container plus information on dosage and frequency. • Clean bedding. • Grooming supplies. • Cleaning supplies including plastic bags, a roll of paper towels and a small bottle of disinfectant. • A canine first aid kit tailored to your breed and the number of dogs you own. In your kit, keep a file of important documents that may prove helpful in an emergency. Include copies of vaccination records and any treatments records on existing medical conditions, copies of registration papers, adoption papers, bill of sale or proof of purchase, microchip or other identification information. It is especially important to remember that having your dog microchipped is useless unless the dog is also registered with the company. Also include a few recent photographs of you and your dog in case he or she becomes lost or separated. Write the breed, age, sex and color on the back. The photographs can also be used to help prove ownership of the dog. It will be helpful to include a list of emergency contacts, such as friends and relatives, especially someone who lives outside of the affected area. Include your veterinarian’s name, address, and telephone number. It may also be helpful to include information on pet-friendly motels that are a good driving distance from your home. Once you have placed all of your items in the box, if you have room, I recommend putting one or two duplicates of your dog’s favorite toys. They help put a dog more at ease in a time of heavy stress. Store the kit in an easy to access location next to or near his crate or kennel so that you can grab it quickly if you need to evacuate your home. Please make sure the crate is labeled with the dog’s name and your name, address, and telephone number.

We will watch this one. I am just not sure we need 11 groups at this time. However, we may need 11 groups in the future when all the breeds eligible show up at a dog show. LLS

We may not be able to prevent a disaster from occurring, be we can minimize the impact. A little planning can help reduce injuries, loss and suffering. ! Photo by Andra O’Connell

Letters to and from the editor Hi members and subscribers, Our cover story: Congratulations to Meg Weiss and Jean Dieden for achieving the goal of another 7-way + titled dachshund - each of the titles proves what an incredibly versatile breed the dachshund is. “Lois” has her coursing title, too!! Kudos to those who put in the time, training and love that it takes to make an “all-around” dog! After 5 years of no price increase for advertising in the newsletter there will be small increase for the full color one page ads - only $10. As of the spring issue it will be $185. All other prices will remain the same. Thank you to all the advertisers who help support the publication of the magazine! And an obvious thank you to all those who submit articles and pictures for the enrichment of the fancy! DCA appreciates all the time and talent you give to the club. NEW!!! In November DCA launched a new service for dachshund fanciers in general. The DCA newsletter will now be published on the web - one month after the printed version has been mailed. All of you reading this probably already receive the newsletter in print version, but now we hope to reach a wider audience. Here is the url (it’s also on the first page of the DCA website): http://issuu.com/dachshundclubofamerica/docs/dca_autumn11 There are no plans whatsoever to discontinue the print version of the newsletter. DCA understands that most fanciers keep these publications for breeding references and it’s sometimes easier to pull out that magazine than to try and find that information on the internet. You will also be able to see the print version first. Please members, keep updated on all the latest laws pertaining to our dogs that many state legislators are introducing. It’s a constant fight to keep our right to own and breed our dogs. Please go to the AKC legislative website for all the latest info. http://www.akc.org/governmentrelations/index.cfm Let’s hope for good 2012. Happy Holidays to everyone!
