With lots of energy and a willingness and enthusiasm to learn that she inherited from her mom I have always had a blast training her. Her name fits her well. I took a line from the old Speedy Gonzalez cartoon who used to say “Arriba, Arriba! Andale, Andale!” which means “Get up let’s go!” and named her Reba. Her registered name comes from an old Reba McEntire song, “I’ll Take Your Heart” because that is exactly what she did to me! Denny Van Hook DVM

You know, when you start a journey with a new dog you often have high hopes and lofty goals. The path to reach those goals is full of trials and tribulations, the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. But if you and your dog remember to have fun along the way you can’t help but build a wonderful bond with the dog and then those goals become quite secondary to the love and commitment you have for each other. At a little over 7 years old I hope that our journey is just beginning with many more happy days living, training, and loving together.

of tests to achieve a definitive diagnosis. Increasing sophistication in veterinary medicine, coupled with high owner expectations often means more testing, greater expense, and occasionally, potentially higher risks when the tests require invasive procedures. Moreover, there are explicit or implicit promises for some tests advertised through the Internet and in social media, which might not stand up to careful scientific scrutiny. This has led to considerable confusion regarding when, if, and what tests are appropriate or recommended for use to diagnose cancer in companion animals or whether any of these tests can be used to detect cancer in the early stages or predict if a healthy dog will develop cancer. This article is intended to provide pet owners with some basic understanding of the diagnostic process – why and when testing is necessary, what are some the benefits and what are some the pitfalls. It also is meant to encourage communication with primary care veterinarians and specialists in order to maximize the potential of a team approach to health care.

Definitions: Cancer The National Cancer Institute defines cancer as “a disease in which abnormal cells divide without control and are able to invade other

tissues.” Cancer cells can spread to other parts of the body through the blood and lymph systems. Cancer is not just one disease; there are more than 100 different types of cancer and the main thing they have in common is uncontrolled proliferation. The same definition applies to cancer in domestic animals. Cancer is a common ailment in our pets today: it is estimated that approximately 1 in 3 dogs will develop cancer in their lifetime. Besides the physical burden on the dog’s health, this diagnosis carries an immense psychological burden on his or her human family. The best weapon against these physical and psychological ravages of cancer is information. Diagnostic testing A diagnostic test is “a medical test performed to aid in the diagnosis or detection of disease.” Diagnostic tests include routine components of the physical exam, as well as more sophisticated assays that require further training to interpret and possibly specialized equipment to perform. Clinical laboratory testing is a large field onto itself. The diagnostic utility of any test is highly dependent on the presence of robust quality control and quality assurance practices in the laboratory performing the test. A test should


have known Sensitivity, which is the proportion of patients with the disease that test positive. It also should have a known Specificity, which is the proportion of patients without disease that test negative. Sensitivity and specificity describe the capability of the test to distinguish between patients with and without disease. The Predictive value of a test describes the probability of disease given a particular test result, and it is influenced by how commonly the disease occurs in a specific population. Sometimes tests are evaluated based on a population that has different characteristics than the group of patients receiving the test in practice, which can mean the test does not identify disease in clinical settings in exactly the same way it did in research studies. Testing performed in the United States on human patients or using human samples is governed by federal regulatory standards under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) of 1988 and with oversight from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). There are no comparable regulatory standards in veterinary medicine. The American Association of Veterinary Laboratory Diagnosticians, Inc. (AAVLD) provides accreditation for veterinary diagnostic laboratories based on their ability to meet established criteria, including those that define “good laboratory practices” (GLP). This accreditation is voluntary and largely limited to the State Diagnostic Laboratories with an emphasis on diseases that have agricultural impact or that might be transmissible to people. Thus, other laboratories may or may not have mechanisms in place to ensure or approximate GLP standards. In general, commercial diagnostic labs operate at or near GLP standards, but there is much variability when point-of-care testing is done. Biomarker A biomarker is “a characteristic that is objectively measured and evaluated as an indicator of normal biology, pathology, or the response to treatment.” Biomarkers can provide important information to determine risk, aid in the diagnosis of a disease, determine prognosis, or plan the treatment strategy for a patient. Biomarkers include substances or compounds that many people would consider to be “routine,” for example blood sugar to monitor diabetes. They also can be highly specialized and sophisticated and apply to only a small population of patients. Early detection of cancer The American Cancer Society endorses a variety of tests that can help identify cancer in humans during the early stages of the disease. “Early detection saves lives,” it is said, and in many cases this is absolutely true. Cancers detected early are oftentimes more curable, and since patients with early stage disease are less likely to have frailties seen in patients with advanced disease, treatments are better tolerated. Nonetheless, some common screening tests that have been embedded as gold standards for

early detection such as the Prostate Specific Antigen or PSA for prostate cancer in men and mammography for breast cancer in women have recently become shrouded in controversy. The main issue of controversy is related to risk:benefit considerations. More specifically, a positive result can lead to invasive procedures that cause significant morbidity, psychological stress, and significant economic cost. Some health care professionals believe that the rate of false positives for these tests (PSA and mammography) is unacceptably high, on balance causing more harm to people that do not have the disease than benefit to people who do. At this time, this controversy is far from resolution and will only be resolved by continued and diligent analysis of test performance and outcomes. Another issue raised is that, while for some cancers early detection can be life-saving, for others there is no evidence that finding the cancer early allows any intervention that improves outcome in terms of quality or quantity of life. In these cases, early detection may just create unnecessary and unproductive anxiety that reduces quality of life for some individuals. This raises an important concern for the pet owner: if cancer tests approved by the FDA and performed under CLIA standards are subject to question and controversy, how do we determine if and when it is reasonable to do a test offered to detect, diagnose, or prognosticate cancer in pets? As explained in more detail below, the answer is not easy, and it requires vigilance, advocacy, and awareness by both pet owners and veterinary care team members. Even beyond the potential reliability, the greater consideration should be, “Would early detection allow me to intervene and improve the outcome for my pet?” In the case of human patients, for example, a high PSA test result would lead the urologist to do additional tests focused on the possibility that the patient has prostatic disease (imaging studies, biopsy, etc.). The subsequent identification of prostate cancer in that patient would lead to potentially lifesaving, or lifeextending therapy, again, focused on the prostate. The same applies to tests which measure biomarkers that are highly specific for cancers of one type or in a single location. On the other hand, tests for early detection that are not highly specific – that is, they are associated with processes such as cell division that are common to many cancers, and they have no relation to an anatomic determinant (organ or tissue specificity) – may not be especially useful. Consider a test that can detect any cancer, or a specific cancer that can occur in a variety of organs, like canine hemangiosarcoma. If the test is sufficiently sensitive to detect the cancer before it is visible by advanced imaging studies or other methods, the veterinarian and the owner are left at a loss for what to do. Should they use cytotoxic therapies on a patient that is not ill, risking possible severe side effects? Would the tumor cells at that stage be sensitive to such therapies? Should they remove organs where the incipient tumor may be present, and what complications might arise? Is there a

guarantee that the tumor is not present elsewhere? How does the veterinarian counsel the owner who may now be helpless to help their pet? Is the stress of knowing that a pet might develop cancer and die justifiable when an intervention does not exist? In this scenario, testing may be not only of little use, but it also may be ethically questionable. The diagnostic process There is neither a single rule nor a single path to reach a cancer diagnosis. Some tumors are quite obvious, manifesting as obvious lumps or bumps outside the body, or easily palpated masses inside a body cavity. Other tumors are quite difficult to detect, as they may be nestled deep in an organ, inside the brain, or distributed throughout the body with no external indication of their existence. Some patients can have severe clinical signs associated with the mass, such as pain, ulceration, discoloration, etc. Others can have severe, but non-specific signs of illness, such as lethargy, inappetence, diarrhea, etc. And others still, can be insidious, causing no signs until they are so advanced as to be untreatable. This, along with the relatively high prevalence of cancer (especially in older animals) means veterinarians must maintain “cancer” in their list of “rule outs” for any ill dog until proven otherwise. Then again, how can it be proven that an animal does not have cancer? For the answer to that question, read on. Routine laboratory testing Current veterinary medical standards promote the use of minimal databases that allow the veterinary professional to monitor his or her patients’ health using a collection of biomarkers. These biomarkers include information obtained from complete blood counts, serum and urine chemistry profiles, and diagnostic imaging studies. In addition to other routine components of the physical exam, these tests allow the veterinary professional to ascertain changes that are inconsistent with those expected from normal ageing. When cancer is suspected, for example, if there is an abnormal growth outside the body or within a body cavity, additional tests are done to “rule in” or “rule out” the various pathological processes that can explain the clinical signs. Among the common rule-outs in a cancer workup, one must consider that lumps and bumps can be caused by inflammation; anemia (low red blood cell counts) can be caused by renal failure; and, masses in the spleen can be hematomas. It is difficult to prove a negative, so while positive results can provide a definitive diagnosis, negative results might only change the relative order of potential diagnoses. It is a common result that one test leads to other tests in the diagnostic process. Yet, it is essential to understand that ordering tests prematurely is not always efficient, and it can derail the diagnostic process. This is because a specialized test interpreted outside its proper context can lead the diagnostician astray, masking both the continued on next page... Dachshund Club of America Winter 2016

Health & Welfare, Cancer continued from page 9 real diagnosis and the most useful tests that should be performed. Recent and specialized laboratory tests for cancer: Do’s and Don’ts. The severity of cancer has led to multiple areas of testing and development. This section is focused on just a few assays that were developed in research laboratories and subsequently commercialized. The focus is purposeful, as these are the tests for which we receive many inquiries, but it is not meant to detract from the utility of other tests that veterinarians commonly use for cancer diagnosis. • Clonality testing for lymphoma: PCR for Antigen Receptor Rearrangements (PARR) This test is based on detecting a signature that can distinguish whether a lymphocyte population arises from a single cell (monoclonal) or from many cells (polyclonal). Every lymphocyte in the body acquires a unique “antigen receptor” through a mechanism that involves moving segments of DNA (rearrangements) to help prepare these cells to protect the body from the many different infectious agents that can be encountered over a lifetime. The diversity of the lymphocyte pool, and therefore the precision of the clonal signature, increases through a process called somatic mutation that takes place in activated lymphocytes. Antigen receptor rearrangement is a normal process; the test utilizes PCR to amplify sequences from all the lymphocytes present in a sample. Essentially, the main result is to say whether all or most of the sequences are the same, which means the population is clonal (and therefore more likely to originate from a cancerous process), or if there are many different ones, which means the population is polyclonal (and more likely to occur in response to an infectious agent or an allergen). Lymphocytes undergo clonal expansion when they are activated. Under conditions where normal lymphocytes are activated, a few or many clones undergo this expansion and create a polyclonal response. When malignant lymphocytes divide, the hallmark is the presence of a single clonal population. The test is offered by a number of different laboratories, each of which has established rigorous standards for quality control. The estimated sensitivity of the test is 75%, and the specificity is about 94%. Conditions that might produce false positive or false negative results have been thoroughly evaluated and published. This is a powerful test, but is not meant as a stand-alone tool. Rather, it is meant as an adjunct test that adds a level of information or confirmation to other commonly used diagnostic tests. Nevertheless, after more than 10 years of refinement, this test is now considered among the core diagnostic tools for lymphoma.

•P-glycoprotein mutation This test is meant to identify dogs that carry a mutation in the ABCB1 gene, which encodes a membrane transport protein called Pglycoprotein (PgP) or multi-drug resistance (MDR) protein. ABCB1 is a member of a large family of genes that encode specialized proteins that pump nutrients into and toxins out of cells. This protein was originally discovered as a culprit for chemoresistance in cancer: it is commonly upregulated in tumors where it serves to pump drugs out of cancer cells before they can cause the intended damage. However, it also serves a protective function by preventing drugs from crossing into organs where they can cause irreparable damage. When daily heartworm preventatives became widespread in the early 1990s, there was a curious association with neurologic toxicity in collies and other herding dogs that received these drugs. This led to the discovery of a mutation in the ABCB1 gene that is present in

as many as 10-12% of dogs. The mutation encodes a defective, inactive product, and the prevalence is highest in herding breeds. The mutation does not seem to carry ill effects other than the high risk for toxicity with drug treatment. Testing is indicated, especially for dogs from high-risk breeds (or dogs that have these breeds in their ancestry), as an aid to plan heartworm prevention strategies or in the case of dogs with cancer, to develop individualized chemotherapy protocols. It is available through the Washington State Clinical Pharmacology lab. • OncoPet RECAF test Recently, OncoPet Diagnostics and BioCurex announced commercialization of a blood test for cancer detection in companion animals. This test is based on detection of a protein in the blood that is, or is similar to the alpha-fetoprotein receptor. Alpha-fetoprotein is involved in the regulation of growth and immune function. The receptor for alpha-fetoprotein is incompletely characterized; the reagent used for this test was made against a membrane extract of human breast cancer cells and recognizes one of several proteins that bind alpha-fetoprotein. This same test has been commercialized for human patients with cancer, but as of late 2011 it had yet to receive FDA approval, although assessment was in progress. The reagent recognizes a protein in dog cells, and so it is reasonable to hypothesize that this protein might also be increased in dogs with cancer.

However, there is considerable controversy even among the experts in the field regarding the potential of alpha-fetoprotein receptors to act as “universal tumor markers.” Data regarding the presence of this protein in dogs with cancer are only available on the company’s website and have not yet been published in a peer reviewed journal, so scientists outside the company have not thoroughly evaluated this test. The company’s own question/answer section and the disclaimers in their data sheet indicate that there is not yet enough information to decide under what conditions this test will be useful as a diagnostic tool for cancer in pets. While running the test is not harmful, an incorrect diagnosis can have profound consequences, and so this test should be used judiciously and always in combination with other established diagnostic tests. • VDxI-TK test for cancer Thymidine kinase (TK) is an enzyme expressed in cells that are undergoing division. TK is released into the blood and serves as a biomarker for cell proliferation. Thus, TK levels are higher in any condition when there are rapidly dividing cells. This can include nonmalignant conditions like pregnancy, growth, and inflammation, as well as malignant cancers. Several publications support an association between elevated TK levels in the blood and cancer. An advantage of this test, like RECAF, is that it is minimally invasive, requiring only a blood sample. In the case of hemangiosarcoma, the reported sensitivity is 50%. This means the false negative rate is quite high (it will have negative calls in half of the cases where dogs have a tumor). This may be due to confounding by other non-malignant conditions (see above). They reported specificity is 90%, but the test cannot distinguish among different types of cancer so this specificity can only be achieved when the TK test is combined with other diagnostic tests. Moreover, its predictive value is not known. Other tests perform equivalently or better that the TK test, but few can be done in a blood sample. It is fair to say that there also is not enough information to decide when this test should be applied. It is apparent that when used, the test should be combined with a diagnostic biopsy that can establish the cancer type, and with imaging studies to stage the tumor. Perhaps the VDxI-TK test is better suited to monitor responses to therapy, for example in dogs with cancer where the basal TK activity was known, and where it diminished when the dog went into remission. In such cases, a persistent elevation back towards the baseline could indicate relapse. • VDxI canine-specific C-reactive protein test and INCaSe C-reactive protein (CRP) is an “acute phase protein” produced by the liver as an early component of systemic inflammation (involving the whole body and not just a small local area).

Health & Welfare, Cancer continued from page 10 inflammation produce little or no CRP. Instead, they release other factors (called interleukins) that instruct the liver to produce and release CRP. Among other functions, CRP coats and inactivates bacteria, which helps the body to eliminate infection. Inflammation is a basic response to many abnormal states, and so while the CRP test is relatively specific to detect the presence of systemic inflammation, it does not necessarily provide information about the cause of inflammation. Elevated CRP has been documented in dogs with active bacterial or fungal infections, in dogs with some viral infections, in dogs with certain chronic inflammatory diseases such as some types of arthritis, and occasionally, in dogs with cancer. The VDxI CRP point of care test (TECO) has high sensitivity (94-96% in blood or serum) and specificity (83-91% in blood or serum). So the test is quite useful to detect or monitor inflammation. As noted above, however, the test cannot discriminate among the many different conditions that cause inflammation. It has been proposed that the combination of VDxI-TX and VDxI-CRP, sold under the name INCaSe, can be used as a method to screen otherwise healthy pets for cancer, in other words, as an early detection test. The principle of combining these two tests is sound, in that it might help to establish the presence of inflammation and confirm or eliminate one of the common causes that confound interpretation of the TK test. However, this test will fail to perform in cases where cancer and inflammation co-exist and both are positive (as noted above, positive CRP tests have been documented in dogs with neoplasia), and in cases where the TK falls below the reference or is negative, such as 50% of hemangiosarcomas. As is the case for other tests described here, there is no peerreviewed information that scientists outside the company can use to thoroughly evaluate this test, and so until robust data are available to confirm its utility, the INCaSe test should not be considered as a standard to screen otherwise healthy pets for cancer. • PetScreen Lymphoma Blood Test (LBT) The principle of this test is based on the concept that cancer cells (lymphoma cells in this case) make proteins that are different from those made by normal cells, and that these proteins can be detected in blood or serum using very sensitive methods. Because the identity of the proteins is unknown, PetScreen developers sought to find those proteins using methods that allow for comparison of all, or almost all the proteins that can be measured in a serum sample. This method, called “proteomics” has been used in the research setting for more than a decade and it holds promise in the diagnostic arena. Results have been published from one study

12

Dachshund Club of America Winter 2016

evaluating the PetScreen LBT. In this study, there was a profile of proteins that could distinguish if serum samples originated from dogs with lymphoma or from dogs without lymphoma with 91% specificity and 75% sensitivity. The PetScreen scientists that conducted this study estimated a positive predictive value of 80% and a negative predictive value of 88%. They further examined samples from dogs that had no lymphoma at the time of testing to see how many would develop lymphoma 3 – 6 months later. Of the 96 dogs in this group, 30 had a positive test result, and of these, 24 had been diagnosed with lymphoma at the time of follow up. On the surface, these results would appear remarkable, and they do indeed represent a large step towards advanced diagnostics. But there are a number of problems that would preclude us from recommending this test as a routine screening or diagnostic test. First, the company has not disclosed the nature of the proteins that allow them to distinguish between “normal” and “lymphoma”, so it is impossible for any independent observer to establish a causeeffect relationship. The published data refer to two proteins (one large and one small) that are the principal determinants, and 8 surrogates that can be used when the results from the first two are equivocal. The lack of a cause-effect relationship is not a problem for some biomarkers that perform admirable in the diagnostic realm (for example, CRP is a very reliable marker of inflammation that does not distinguish among the many causes of inflammation). But in the case where the information is absolutely means that the interpretation of the results must rely partly on faith – an approach that runs counter to evidence based medicine. Another problem with LBT test is that the population used for validation had some level of uncertainty. Some dogs were diagnosed based on “clinical judgment”, a measure that is subjective. In addition, we recognize that “lymphoma” is a general descriptor for a variety of diseases that arise from different cells and have different behavior and response to therapy. In this study, the investigators did not distinguish among lymphoma subtypes, so it is unclear if the test is useful for only one or a few common types of lymphoma, or if it is useful for any type of lymphoma. As is true for other tests described here, it is important to understand when and where this test is likely to provide benefit. For example, in the case of a dog that has large lymph nodes and where a biopsy is obtained, the LBT test would be redundant (would not add any significant information). To date, its value to monitor recurrence is unknown, but it would be justifiable to use the test experimentally to assess this, as it might be able to detect relapse before other methods. As far as “screening,” this test is unlikely to have benefit when used in a dog where the probability of lymphoma is remote. The reported predictive value did not take into account the likelihood of disease, and the test has yet to be rigorously evaluated in

dogs with a variety of other conditions. The company reports that “immune and inflammatory conditions” did not interfere with performance, but they do not report if other tumors might. Finally, the use of the LBT in an otherwise healthy dog where the probability of lymphoma is greater must be balanced with the value that such information would provide. In other words, what would be the next steps to confirm the diagnosis and how would it change the treatment, if at all? These are questions that every veterinarian should apply to every test. When a test result does not substantially advance the diagnosis or help develop a treatment plan, it can still be justified if there is no downside (negative outcome). But when a test result can raise the index of suspicion for a terminal disease without providing guidance for management, the significant downside must be considered before the test is adopted for routine use. • Zen – a practical approach to cancer The Wikipedia description of Zen is “a practice that emphasizes the personal expression of experiential wisdom in the attainment of enlightenment.” In the area of cancer diagnostics, this Zen can be defined as the wisdom and enlightenment to be rational and use only those tests that are likely to improve the diagnostic accuracy, inform prognosis, or guide therapy. Owners and veterinarians should communicate clearly, carefully, and thoroughly. For every test there must be a reason and a purpose. Screening tests that do not meet these goals probably have little value in the diagnostic process for the cancer patient. The lack of regulation for veterinary laboratories means that owners and veterinarians must be even more vigilant. The potential severity of cancer creates a sense of urgency to develop a management plan. It is then when people are most vulnerable, and when it will be most important to avoid substituting reason for emotion. The promise of discovery is great, and the introduction of the tests described here, as well as many others simply illustrates the magnitude of the problem and its societal importance. In the end, only those tests that prove to be truly useful will survive the test of time. But until then, it is practical to heed the old adage “buyer beware.” IMPORTANT NOTE from Rochelle Lesser, Land of PureGold Foundation Founder, May 2012 This article represents the opinion of two people, pivotally involved in cancer research and companion animal diagnostics. One can never take for granted, how much respect we have for these particular authors' work and accomplishments. The fact that Dr. Modiano elicited input from a fellow researcher, speaks volumes about his commitment and collaborative nature. We are very appreciative of such thoughtful guidance. THE MORE WE CARE, the more beautiful life becomes. landofpuregold.com

Louie arrived into this world on March 27, 2011 as a singleton. He is a breeders, trainer and owners dream come true. From the show ring at Westminster to just hanging out at the house looking out the window he is a “do it all� dog. He has never let anyone down. He even has stepped into his roll as my service dog with purpose and pride. I have never seen him have a bad day. It has taken a true village to get him to this honor besides his breeders and owners, I would like to thank Paula Carter and Kim Vidrine for letting me use Primo. Team Black and Gold (Larry and Laurie Fenner and Elizabeth Jordan-Nelson) for getting him to being a Top ranked dog and Lisa Erickson for starting him in his next adventure in Agility. Looking forward to more dreams coming true!

A book review of

Lily and the Octopus by Steven Rowley Now this is the Law of the Jungle, As old and as true as the sky; And the Wolf that shall keep it may prosper, But the Wolf that shall break it must die. As the creeper that girdles the tree-trunk, The Law runneth forward and back; For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf, And the strength of the Wolf is the Pack. -Rudyard Kipling 18

And so begins a story of a dachshund named Lily. I’m an avid reader and through the years I have read many, many books I hold dear. I just finished one that I do believe is in my top ten, no top 5 favorites of all time. Initially, I began reading Lily and the Octopus by Steven Rowley because the main character is a dachshund named Lily. I continued reading, because reading this hilariously, touching, magical story is an emotional roller coaster. This book plays tribute to man’s best friend and a dog’s ability to “out love” his human counterparts. Mr. Rowley explores unconditional love in a keenly insightful, and touching way. It should have been a quick read, but it took me longer to finish for two reasons. First, I would read and reread parts I found especially poignant and enlightening. On my second read through, I began highlighting passages I found especially moving or thought provoking. The second reason it took me longer to finish than it should was the simple fact that I didn’t want the story to end. I didn’t want to have to face the inevitable outcome. My head knew how it would end, but my heart just wasn’t ready to face that unavoidable final section. I found myself rereading sections, simply to postpone coming to the end. But Rowley's story has a few final twists and ends on a hopeful, upbeat note that makes the whole experience worthwhile.

To say Lily and the Octopus is a story about a man and his dachshund is like saying Moby Dick is a story about fishing. This is a story that delves into love and loss. It faces head on the fact that when you love deeply, you take the chance of losing that love, and with that loss experience uncontrollable, heartbreaking emotions. But this story is not just about loss and sadness. It’s about life, loving, and appreciating every moment. It’s about facing a certainty with a determination to make it through as a stronger person. Lily “talks” exactly how I would expect my dachshunds to talk. Her sentences are full of explanation points; you can just feel her exuberance. For Lily every day comes with new adventures to experience, new people to meet, new things to explore and new smells to investigate. She charges into each new day taking life head on in a way only a dachshund can. We can all learn so much from this happy-go-lucky, carefree spirit, especially how she deals with her “octopus”. At one point, Lily’s owner, Ted, states, “I have to be better about living in the not-knowing.” Our dogs are so good with “living in the notknowing”. They don’t regret the past nor do they fear the future. They are always in the moment, a concept we humans just can’t seem to grasp. Ted goes through the stages of grief: denial, anger and then acceptance. But he becomes a stronger person thanks to the love and support of Lily. How Lily is able to walk him through these stages is what makes this book so endearing. I had a wonderful phone conversation with the author. Mr. Rowley emphasized that this was not meant to be a sad story, but a story about love, hope and life. He wants his readers to laugh and smile while reading Lily’s adventures. Writing this book was his way of celebrating this breed and commemorating an amazing little dog. Lily was Mr. Rowley’s first dachshund. He fell in love with the breed when as a young boy, a neighbor had a litter of dachshunds he was allowed to visit. Even though his current dog, Tilda, is not a dachshund, he hopes to eventually have another dachshund in his life. He explained to me, Tilda was an abused rescue who didn’t trust people. Their initial relationship worked well for both of them, since at that point, Tilda was not ready to give her heart to a person, nor was Steven ready to give his heart to another dog. But since they have been together, they have slowly begun the process of learning to trust one another. Tilda is learning not all humans are cruel, and Stephen is learning to open his heart to someone who needs him. One of my favorite quotes from the book says it all. “By then I had all but given up trying to out stubborn a dachshund, an exercise in futility if there ever was one.” So true, Mr. Rowley, so true. Steven would love to know if any of Lily’s siblings are still around. Lily, born February 16, 2001 was bred by Barbara Butterworth. Her sire was Landmark Cesar and her dam was Ebony Flyer. Please contact Vicki Spencer at lorindol@roadrunner.com if you know anything about this litter you would like to share with Steven. !

Dachshunds have prey drive and most of them like to go after anything that has fur and moves. This characteristic is not always appreciated by nonDachshund people. One way to channel this prey drive productively is participation in earthdog activities. The American Kennel Club and the American Working Terrier Association both offer den trials where the quarry at the end of the tunnel is a pair of caged lab rats that the dog can bark at. You can take your Dachsie to a den trial cold – and a few dogs can succeed this way. But it is more fair to the dog to give it a proper start by introducing it to the quarry BEFORE asking it to go underground. Identification of the quarry and working underground are two different activities and it is helpful to address them separately. This article will describe how to introduce your Dachshund to the rat. This can be accomplished by acquiring a domestic rat (I prefer the “hooded” or spotted ones as they are cuter) and showing the rat to the dog while the rat is in a secure cage. (Parenthetically, I should add that rats are social creatures and benefit from living with at least one other rat for companionship. If you do acquire a pair of rats, make sure that they are both of the same sex. Rats reproduce at an amazing rate!) The cage is

important. I prefer one made of epoxy-coated wire that is strong and safe. It should have a “bail handle,” that is a handle that can swing and lie flat so that the cage can be inserted in a 9-inch square tunnel later in the training process. Place the rat in the cage flat on the ground, step back a little and allow the dog to approach. Figure 1: This may be done on lead if the area is not securely fenced. The handler should keep the lead slack and exert no pressure or direction on the dog. Figure 2: Initially the handler should be silent. We want the dog to focus on this strange new thing and think about it, not look to the handler for direction. It does not benefit the dog to keep saying “Get the rat!” or “look, look, look,” and may in fact keep it from thinking about what it is seeing. Just let the dog process what it sees. Smell is the most important sense for a dog, so let the dog sniff the cage with no distractions, especially if it is a young or submissive dog. (Do check out Alexandra Hurowitz’s book Inside of a Dog for a fascinating, readable account of along other things how a dog smells.) The smell of the rat has to go through the nasal receptors in the nose; the impulses then travel to the brain where the scent is combined with the visual to identify the quarry. This process may take some time for a young

dog, maybe even multiple exposures to the rat. The handler should do nothing to distract or interfere with the dog’s attention at this point. The dog may not only sniff, but actually lick the cage or try to lick the rat. This is normal identification behavior. The dog has olfactory receptor in the roof of its mouth as well as the nose so it can “taste” the smell as well Some young dogs may turn away from the cage, avert their gaze and chew leaves, grass or other nearby items. Figure 3: This is a stress response and is quite normal. The dog should not be corrected, but rather ignored. The young Border Terrier in the photo was very interested in the rat two minutes before, but then hit his stress threshold and turned off. Some dogs suddenly “turn on” with a notable change in ear and tail set. Figure 4: It is as if they are electrified as the body quivers and they stare intently. Note the compact posture of the Dachsie in the photo with head alert, hind legs under the body as if to spring and tail curving to the side. Sometimes the dog will suddenly lunge at the cage, bump it with the nose, or paw. Some dogs curve around the cage as if trying to get to the back, Figure 5: while others may try to get under the cage. This is when the handler can then move the cage in short quick increments still keeping it horizontal and near the ground (the prey zone). Figure 6: The dog should move with the cage, or at least keep its eyes intently fastened on it. You can see how the Glen of Imaal Terrier in the photos follows the cage. The degree of interest can be determined by moving the cage slightly up and then down. The dog’s head should follow. At this point, especially with a young (under 1½ years) dog, you should stop. Young dogs have short attention spans and asking a young dog to concentrate for too long will just add stress, not information. Even older, mature dogs who do not get out a lot, may stress at this point. It is always better to stop too soon, than to continue and have the dog associate the rat with stress. Always set your dog up to succeed and stop while the dog still wants more.

DCA HEALTH & WELFARE TRUST FUND DONOR REPORT TRUST FUND $10,000 SPONSORSHIP OF DISC DISEASE RESEARCH In 2016 the Trust Fund made its largest single grant ever with its $10,000 sponsorship, through the Morris Animal Foundation, of disc disease research being conducted by Dr. Natasha Olby at North Carolina State University School of Veterinary Medicine in Raleigh. Gifts from dachshund lovers around the country have made this sponsorship possible, and Dr. Olby’s letter of thanks says it all! BETWEEN OCTOBER 1, 2015 AND NOVEMBER 18, 2016, THE TRUST FUND RECEIVED DONATIONS FROM THE FOLLOWING: Donations from Organizations AmazonSmile Carrie Medhi Foundation Membership of the Dachshund Club of America AT&T - YourCause Corporate Giving Programs Donations from Individuals Richard A. Kraft – in support of hemangiosarcoma research Donations in Honor of or to Acknowledge Individuals Cynthia Cero – to acknowledge the gift of GCh. V Schwalbes Jar Jar Binks MW and in honor of Robert and Janet Schwalbe Dr. John Hallett – in honor of Corlis and Dick McKitrick Dr. Leyla S. Wirth – to honor Corlis and Dick McKitrick Donations in Honor of Dogs Connecticut Yankee Dachshund Club – in honor of all dachshunds Memorials for Dogs Robert and Jean Burnett – in memory of MT’s Lark Cynthia Cero – in memory of “all the dachshunds I have loved” Carrie Medhi Foundation – in memory of Ch. Doxtopia’s Black Tie v Culdach’s “Trevor” Dr. John Hallett – in memory of Leopold Judy Shugart – in memory of her “very best friend and companion” Chip, aka Ch. Jarbsy’s Taking a Chance Dr. Leyla S. Wirth – in memory of Leopold Memorials for Individuals Glen Falls Kennel Club, Inc. – in memory of Don Latham

The Officers and Board of Directors of the DCA Health & Welfare Trust Fund thank the generous donors who have made contributions in support of the fund’s goals of promoting education and research aimed at eliminating health and genetic problems within the breed. While the majority of donations continue to be given by individuals in memory of or in honor of special humans and canines, other kinds of gifts are always welcome. GIVE TO THE TRUST FUND WITH YOUR AmazonSmile PURCHASES Remember to SMILE – instead of just making a purchase from Amazon, make that purchase through AmazonSmile (use smile.amazon.com) and designate the DCA Health & Welfare Trust Fund as the charitable organization of your choice. The Trust Fund will then receive a donation from Amazon amounting to 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases. In 2016, the Trust Fund received over $100 from AmazonSmile, but just imagine how much larger that figure could be if more people named the Fund as their chosen charitable recipient. OTHER WAYS TO GIVE Don’t forget to use Google’s Goodshop, Goodsearch and Gooddining to benefit the Trust Fund. And, if your company matches gifts made to non-profits and charities, please be sure to list the DCA Health & Welfare Trust Fund as a “match recipient” when you designate your donations for the year. Here’s an example from 2016: the Trust Fund received a donation of $130 from YourCause (YourCause.com) because an employee at AT&T donated through the company’s matching gift program. It’s also very important to have the Trust Fund listed as a memorial recipient in your obituary and/or to remember the Trust Fund in your will as these gifts are ones which truly “live on” and have an ongoing impact. The DCA HEALTH & WELFARE TRUST FUND is a 501-c-3 tax-exempt, non-profit organization and, to the extent allowed by law, gifts are considered tax-deductible charitable contributions. All donations are acknowledged and donors receive a receipt for tax purposes. You may make a gift to the Trust Fund any time you wish by mailing your check made out to DCA H & W Trust Fund to: Ruth Robins – Trust Administrator, DCA Health & Welfare Trust Fund, c/o 4314 Westport Terrace, Louisville, KY 40207-7014. If at any time you have questions regarding a gift to the Trust Fund, contact the Trust Administrator by phone at (502) 893-2237 or via e-mail at ruth.robins1@gmail.com.

Thanks to judges Michelle Scott and Kandy Boll for these wonderful wins for field pointed Eli! We’re so blessed that Eli’s families keep him in such great shape for the show ring and for field trials. One day soon, he will hold multiple titles in many sports, hopefully with more BOV, Specialty, Hound Group and BIS/BISS wins. 2017 promises to be a wonderful year for Eli with the help of his loving families and talented handlers Adam Peterson and Pepe Leyton!

HARVEST MOON CLASSIC – 2016

“Over the Moon”

ow in its fifth year, each Harvest Moon Classic has managed to blend traditions from the past with new favorites and trends. This year, the Harvest Moon Classic – 2016 in Roscoe, Illinois, featured NINE field trials with the addition of a trial hosted by the Minnesota Dachshund Club. By popular demand, the Madison Area Dachshund Club hosted an earthdog test, and offered Canine Good Citizen testing. Additional offerings included an Introduction to Nosework Seminar presented by Cris Lewis, AKC tracking certification with Lois Ballard, and UBT blood tracking tests with Larry Gohlke.

Dachshund Club of America Winter 2016

FROM START TO FINISH Thursday, October 6 – After a year of planning and weeks of preparation, campers and other exhibitors arrived in anticipation of the first day of trials. There were 30 camping reservations for “opening day”, with more slated for the following week. With the field open for training, others also came to brush up on their skills. A bonfire was held in the evening to kick off the upcoming events. Friday, October 7 – The day started the way every day would start during Harvest Moon – with a group picture! Badger Dachshund Club

hosted the first trial with an entry of 95. This would be the first of four Absolute runs offered over the course of the event, and the Absolute winner on this day was the standard wire, “Milo”, handled by Rick Schwarz. Saturday, October 8 – Badger Dachshund Club’s second trial started with a visit from “Ole and Lena”. When entries closed, there were 102 entries! After awards, Charlie Snider and his trusty sidekick, Stan Knoll, entertained everyone with a lively auction of choice prizes. A bonfire with singing and dancing ended a fun day.


3-DCA Winter 2016_1-DCA September 2005 .qxd 2/5/17 4:12 PM Page 37

23, Senior Earthdog – 14, Master Earthdog – 9 for a total of 68 entries. In the afternoon, Cris Lewis presented a fascinating Introduction to Nosework seminar to 15 attendees. Lois Ballard graciously watched 6 dogs run AKC TD certification tracks, and Larry Gohlke gave 2 UBT blood tracking tests. Others scheduled time with Pam Bethke for Canine Good Citizen tests, while still others found time to catch up on laundry. The field was open for training in the afternoon, and there was no shortage of handlers looking for rabbits to run. When light rain settled in Wednesday evening, eight card players and more than a few observers settled in for a game of Euchre in the warmth of the clubhouse. A full day, no matter what activity was chosen.

Why wouldn’t he be? I hear you ask. Well let me tell you true. In 100 Dachshund judging tasks So much has he been through!

Up in the early light of dawns Until the end of days Bill found a way to soldier on Whatever came his way. 100 TRIALS BILL!

Monday, October 10 – Minnesota Dachshund Club hosted their second trial with 116 entries. The Absolute prize from the Jean Jasinsky Memorial Trophy Fund went to “Zingy” handled by Jill Chidlow.

Wednesday, October 12 – The Madison Area Dachshund Club hosted a full day of activities, starting with an earthdog test. Entries were impressive for a mid-week, single test! Introduction to Quarry – 22, Junior Earthdog –

There is a story to be told. A Beagle man named Bill Came to judge from Ohio And he is with us still.

100 TRIALS BILL!

Sunday, October 9 – Minnesota Dachshund Club took over where Badger Dachshund Club left off, with an impressive 120 entries. DCA Awards were donated by Kathy Johnson, with the Absolute win going to “Zingy”, handled by Jill Chidlow. Following awards, the first of two gigantic raffles assembled by Sherry Ruggieri was drawn, with the proceeds supporting the maintenance of the field trial grounds.

Tuesday, October 11 – Minnesota Dachshund Club still going strong at field trial number five with 106 entries. Phil and Sherry Ruggieri donated the day’s prizes in memory of FC Augden von Moosbach-Zuzelek. The evening bonfire gave everyone a chance to relax and plan for Wednesday’s activities.

The following story was composed and read by Patt Nance in honor of Bill Dyer having judged 100 Dachshund field trials. Crowd participation provided the rain, snow, blood, brush and other animation for the story. Thank you, and congratulations again Bill!

In bright hot sun In pouring rain And even when it snowed He shrugged it off, up-beat, blood-stained Through brush and briars he strode. Thursday, October 13 – The first of two Dachshund Club of the Great Lakes field trials closed with an entry of 93. When we left the field for lunch, we stepped across the pond for an English Delight lunch featuring cottage pie prepared by Vicki Spencer, and Clare MacDonald. They wisely held off serving a fruity concoction of Pimm’s until after the trial! Friday, October 14 – Day 8 and Field Trial #7 rolled around with an entry of 94. When the field trial was over, the action once again was in the clubhouse. The annual Wild Thing dinner table was held with rabbit fricassee, venison tenderloin tips, walleye, perch, home-grown squash, cucumber salad, creamed corn, applesauce, and so much more. When everyone was feeling well fed, Bill Dyer took center stage and was honored for having judged over 100 Dachshund field trials – certainly a milestone for someone from another breed! Saturday, October 15 – On Saturday it was starting to feel like we were heading into the home stretch. We were still running hot with 92 entries when the dogs once again took to the field. At the end of the day, Ziggy (not to be confused with Zingy) handled by Lori Isaacson, was the Absolute winner. Ziggy would become a

100 TRIALS BILL! He knew the rules and used them well To make decisions just. Though times the flak hit hard enough He’d have rather faced a bus! 100 TRIALS BILL! He did not know ten years ago We had so many women. But no concerns when deep doo flew, He found a lake to stand in. 100 TRIALS BILL! Bill has posed for a thousand photos Since coming to our trials. Today we say, “A thousand more – May you walk with us many more miles!” 200 TRIALS BILL!

Harvest Moon Classic continued from page 37 new Field Champion the following day. The prize was an embroidered throw quilt hand-made by Shawn Nies. Sunday, October 16 – All good things must come to an end. We started the last day of the Harvest Moon Classic – 2016 with an entry of

making plans to “keep in touch” and vow to see each other again next October. When the Harvest Moon Classic - 2016 was all said and done, there were 14 new Field Champions, 4 new Canine Good Citizens and 2 new earthdog titles earned. In addition, the fund raising auctions, raffles and other donations brought in about $3,000 for the maintenance and farming projects on the grounds. This is a much needed investment in keeping these grounds available for future use! For those looking forward to the Harvest Moon Classic – 2017, the dates will be October 6-15. Visit the Harvest Moon Classic

DCA NATIONAL FIELD TRIAL AND EARTHDOG JUDGES – CHANGE IN NOMINATION PROCESS Starting with the 2018 DCA National performance events, any DCA member wishing to nominate a judge for either the DCA National Field Trial or the DCA National Earthdog Test will be required to get the nominee’s written acceptance of the nomination before their name can be added to the ballot. To have a nominee’s name appear on the ballot, both the member nominating a performance judge and the person being nominated will have to sign the nomination card. The reason for this added step is to streamline and expedite the nomination and voting process. In the past couple of years there has been an increasing number of people nominated who were unaware they were nominated to judge. In some cases the nominee was not available to judge or willing to be nominated; in other cases the nominee did not meet DCA’s requirements for judges; and in a few instances the nominee was not approved by the AKC to judge the event they were nominated for. By securing the nominee’s understanding of DCA’s requirements for judges and their acceptance of the assignment, if elected, the entire nominating and voting process will run smoother and proceed quicker.

GCh. Diagram Brownwood Bell SS CGC (GCh. Brownwood Legacy V Laddland SS X Ch. Diagram Arabesque SS)

Belle was to be my special after I retired Flynn. It was not to be. She garnered several group placements in her first outings and then began limping. After a course of Doxycycline, I decided there was less stress in beginning obedience training. She does wonderful automatic sits (I had a TIME with her sitting during DCA!!!) and is enthusiastic about this new venue. DCA was her first conformation outing in almost a year. She had glorious movement, front, rear, and side and I can’t wait to breed her. Thank you, breeder-judge Connie Fisher for her Award of Merit at DCA this year. Belle was co-bred and is co-owned with Jerry Cerasini.

Ch. Diagram Fate Steps in MW (Ch. Diagram Rags Argon MW X Ch. Diagram Rags Jonsu Tauriel MW)

Last year I took my family to Disney World. Tauriel came in season the second I left and Argon, her littermate, took it upon himself to breed her! Although Tauriel is a carrier for LaFora, Argon in CLEAR. The result is this wonderful bitch! She is pictured going BOW from the 6-9 puppy class and Best Puppy in Show at the 2nd host show at DCA for 5 points. Thank you miniature wirehair breeder-judge Emma Jean Stephenson. She finished with 2 more 5 point majors! She has 2 other siblings: Ch. Diagram Dreams Come True MW, owned by Pat Hodges, and Diagram Second Star to the Right MW (major pointed), owned by Jerri Gilpatrick. And, would you believe, I went back to Disney World/Universal with another part of my family this past summer and they did it again! Tauriel will NEVER again be put in a run with Argon while I’m gone!

TRAINING THE HANDLER (Not Just the Dog)

IN OBEDIENCE COMPETITION By Karen R. Scheiner

he Olympics were held this year and I couldn’t get enough of those amazing US woman gymnasts. They exemplified how to compete gracefully and flawlessly in challenging events that few could even attempt. But, more than that, I recognized the unparalleled concentration and focus that was required of them on the world stage. Every performance was methodical and seemed to be perfect. They did not allow the pressure of the environment to unnerve them. The crowds, the lights, the cameras – they were simply unfazed, doing their jobs systematically every time. You might ask, what place does the Olympics have in an article on dog training? In fact, these gymnasts have mastered the obstacle that keeps many of us from competing successfully. Lots of handlers and their dogs have skill, but it is the rare competitor who can repeatedly maintain focus and concentration when there is so much external distraction to filter out. I was recently encouraged to attend a seminar, called “Mental Management.” Mental Management Systems is a company that was created by an Olympic Gold Medalist, Lanny Bassham, who mastered the sport of rifle shooting, earning multiple world titles and gold medals. He developed a mental system for himself, which he later extended to other athletes, including Olympics competitors. As part of the program, they teach how to have the optimal thought process during rigorous competitions. To be honest, before attending, I was very skeptical that this mental system could have any relevance to me. I really didn’t consider dog training to be a “sport,” in the traditional sense of the word. Furthermore, I didn’t think that my own thoughts or actions in the ring played much of a role in my dog’s performance. What I learned from this program has been immeasurable.

T

Dachshund Club of America Winter 2016

In prior years, I would walk into the ring with my dog on lead, in heel position. Once that lead was removed and handed to the steward, I was secretly hoping and praying that he would stay with me. Will my dog remember how to drop on recall? Will he take the dumbbell when I send him? Even though I had practiced the exercises many, many times in my training building and at matches, I still had doubts. As a result, our actual ring performance was often not as we had practiced. So what happened? Did the dog forget the exercises, or was it something that I was doing?

Control Your Environment After taking this Mental Management seminar, I began to focus on my part of the “team” effort with the dog. What was I thinking about when I entered the ring? Was I focused on the component of each exercise, or just thinking about the ribbon at the end of it all? Did I feel the pressure of other competitors watching from outside of the ring? How much pressure did I feel from the judge? I soon came to realize that I had been letting the environment influence my ring performance. The dog show can be so different than just taking my dog to a training building to practice his exercises. Inevitably, there is someone wanting to move their dog to go in front of mine, when I am warming up. Or I will have a conflict with another ring if I have two dogs entered at the same trial; sometimes the judge is flexible, and sometimes not. Then there is that large dog sitting at the ring entrance just as I am preparing to enter the ring with my doxie. And let’s not forget the audience; are they watching and evaluating me? Do I feel pressured by the spectators? Or, that friendly person that I haven’t seen in a long time; why does she try to strike up a conversation right before my ring

time? I sure that some, if not all of these examples sound familiar, if you have been competing in obedience. These instances can cause stress, anxiety and loss of focus on your performance. The goal is to have consistent thoughts each time you enter the ring. Such external influences need to be managed and essentially ignored. To allow the environment to control your thoughts will ultimately result in a disorganized or less than perfect performance. If you are focusing on your dog and the exercise you are doing, then you can’t be thinking about the environment at the same time. My purpose in writing this article is not to try to condense the Mental Management program. Frankly that would be impossible in an article of this size. Further, I have not been authorized to offer instruction of their program. So to be clear, my purpose is to tell you what I learned from that seminar and how I changed my ring performance as a result. Hopefully, this will help you as well. At the end of this article, I have provided contact information if you wish to follow up directly with Mental Management Systems for their books, CDs and seminars. There’s a saying, “You are what you eat.” I would like to change that a little to say, “You are what you think.” If you think you won’t qualify, then you probably won’t. It’s that simple. If you whine and complain that you are training a dachshund and, because he’s a dachshund, he won’t heel, then you either need to train better or get a new breed. A better option is to consider how you have been competing. Have you been consistent with your dog in the ring, or do you get flustered? Do you give the dog the same signals each and every time, or do you vary them? For example, if you are stressed about the recall, do you give the dog such a strong “Stay!” command, that


3-DCA Winter 2016_1-DCA September 2005 .qxd 2/5/17 4:13 PM Page 45

when you call him, he just sits there? Reflect on whether you stay calm in the ring, like you do in practice. Pay attention to what you think about in training, and when you get in the ring. Is it the same each time? Your role as the handler may have more impact on your dachshund’s performance than you may realize!

Take on a Positive Attitude After taking this seminar, I have a renewed positive energy when I walk into the ring. Amazingly, this seems to go right down the leash to my dog. With my improved attitude, my dog actually has performed better in competition. Perhaps I was nervous before, and the dog sensed this. Or perhaps my verbal signals were louder, or my hand signals were faster or sharper before. Whatever the reason, when my mind is focused on the process of each exercise, the dog’s performance has been on target. In part, this attitude has been facilitated by my creating a more positive self- image of myself and my dog. A positive self-image is reinforcing; a negative one is just the opposite. Positive selfimage is created over time. Try to think about all of the things that you and your dog did correctly in practice. Talk about the things that he did well. If you come out of the ring, upset that your dog missed your signal to drop, or he sniffed the floor instead of heeling, you need to put that thought behind you. Think about what your dog did well and figure out a solution to the whatever the error may have been. The more criticism that you lay on yourself, the less likely you will have the confidence for a successful performance the next time. Work on solving issues, and spend less time beating yourself up and revisiting what went wrong. I have also started to keep a journal of all of my training events and shows. I record my dog’s training issues and how I have worked on solving them. I have also recorded our successes in the ring. This has proved to be an invaluable tool, and also a boost of self-confidence when I look back and see how far that my dog and I have progressed over time.

Prepare and Let the Fun Begin If you know what to expect in the ring, you won’t get flustered or be surprised when you compete. Before you go in the ring, watch where the judge stands. Watch the heeling pattern

carefully. Know where the figure-eight and recall will take place. Have it set it your mind so you can stop trying so hard in the ring. Dog obedience is supposed to be fun. So many competitors are nervous or anxious, that the fun seems to get lost. I have learned to let my training happen; actually it is in the training sessions that the hard work occurs. The best performances that have been offered by me and my dog are the ones that were super fun and just happened naturally. The first time I actually tested my “positive attitude” theory, was when I entered Rock Star, my six-year-old silver dapple dachshund, in the Utility obedience class at a local trial this year. If you are not an obedience competitor, be aware that the Utility level is the most challenging level of obedience offered by the AKC. Before going into that Utility ring, I had watched some of the dogs go before me. I carefully studied each exercise. I even took notes! I knew the heeling pattern exactly. I had committed to memory where we had to halt, and when we had

to go fast and slow. I had watched the judge give signals and I knew exactly where to stand and what to expect. (In fact, each judge may vary the way they give signals.) I knew where the articles would be placed, and exactly how to position Rock Star so when he turned, he would be facing the pile. Total preparation. Not being flustered was a big plus.

Finding Success ~ in a Big Way! There were 12 dogs entered in the class. As luck would have it, the ring order was from big to small dogs, so of course, we were last. At about the 10th dog, I asked the steward how everyone was doing. She lamented, “Only one dog qualified in this whole group so far.” With my new found confidence, I blithely remarked, “Don’t worry, I will change that.” I have to say that it was a total mindset change for me. I had not ever felt so confident, nor had I ever qualified in Utility. I felt different and had a much more positive attitude than ever before. After years of watching and worrying, I realized that lack of confidence would filter down to my dog. So when it was our turn, I proudly walked into the ring, with my little dachshund, Rock Star, heeling at my side. Rock Star didn’t miss a beat. He performed each exercise diligently and cleanly; he actually

exuded confidence. You could tell how he was enjoying himself and he came flying over the jump and running to my feet on the recall in the directed jumping. My attempts at focus and concentration were a success! We took second place in the class, which was perfectly fine with me. This event was a turning point for me and my dog. Not only was it a learning experience – in a big way – but it was a test of my decision to carefully and methodically focus on each individual exercise. In my decision to stay calm and to stop worrying about the environment and the outcome of the program, I found success. The truth be told, there is nothing that can replace practice and repetition of exercises with your dachshund. Although you aren’t training for the Olympics, regular training is necessary before you can strive for achievement in the ring. Once your dog shows a respectable performance in practice and matches, it is time to enter a trial. Always remember that it takes two to make a qualifying performance. Keep your head on, and don’t get rattled by distractions. Easy to say, but harder to do. Trust in your training. If you remain confident and focused, you can go for the gold! More information about the Mental Management program can be found at www.MentalManagement.com. They offer books, a DVD and multiple CDs (there is even one on Dog Obedience) that you can purchase on-line. To start, I recommend Freedom Flight and With Winning In Mind, in either CD or book form. They also offer seminars across the country, although most are held at their offices in Flower Mound, TX. !

Dachshunds have their own agenda and can be stubborn about seeing their plans through to completion. What Rosie lacked in consistency, she made up for in enthusiasm. Most of the time when I called her name, she sprinted back, her long ears cocked and flying like a little girl's pigtails. Each encounter was a glorious reunion, even if we'd been parted for only a minute or two. I had never felt so loved. Mary Doria Russell 48

I

have heard many times throughout the years that you should never teach conformation dogs obedience. To that, I say Hogwash.

In my opinion, it is very important that a dog learn some basic obedience terms if you want to be a true team and excel in the dog show conformation ring. Working with your dog 5-10 minutes per day is all you need to start the process to become outstanding in the ring. I start with my pups at about 10 weeks, but you can teach a dog of any age. The terms I each my dogs are in this order: Watch me Stand Stay Step Back Up As you start this training, decide on a cue word that you will use in conjunction with treats. Many people will use YES or OK. Always say this word when you treat the dog during training. After the dog has learned the commands, you will not need to treat every time, but you should still always use the cue word. WATCH ME: Teaching your dog to pay attention to you is very important. If you can get your dog to ignore things around him and focus on you, it will be much easier to get the attention you need in the show ring. Here’s how: Put some of your dog’s favorite treats in your pocket or closed hand. Stand or sit facing your dog. Show your dog a treat and bring the treat up in front of your face. Tell your dog to “WATCH ME”. Your dog will automatically look at the treat. As soon as he looks right at your face, quickly, give him a treat, and then say, “Good boy!” Do several repetitions of “WATCH ME” treating IMMEDIATELY as soon as they look at your face. Slowly extend the time you ask your dog to watch you until they give you attention for five seconds or more at a time to build tolerance. TIP: Once your dog is dependable looking at you with the “WATCH ME” command, do not show the treat, and only give him the treat after he looks at you. Practice “WATCH ME” many times during the day. It may take a while before your dog understands. Praise him whenever he gives you eye contact. STAND: Teaching your dog to stand on command is very important for show dogs. Your dog has to be trained to stand and stay while the judge checks his coat, teeth, and structure. Free standing of a dog in the show ring is also called self-stacking. NOTE: This information is not how to hand stack* your dog, this is how to first teach your dog the stand command. However, a dog that is

first taught the stand and stay commands will be much easier to hand stack and hold the correct position. Start off with your dog either sitting or lying down in front of you. Do the Watch Me exercise to obtain the dogs attention. Once the dog is focused on you and the treat, say STAND and very slowly pull the treat straight out from his nose and take a step back. Your dog should stand up to follow the treat. The moment he is standing, praise him and give him the treat and say GOOD STAND! If you are having trouble getting him to stand up, you can encourage him further by putting on your show leash and applying gentle pressure to the lead while stepping back with the treat. The first several times you practice the stand command, you should praise and treat any time your dog stands up, the foot placement does not matter at this point, or if he moves a little bit. You should be able to perfect the stand command in several short training sessions.

How to excel in the Conformation Ring with Obedience Training Attention and Standing By Anne Schmidt and Andi Baltes

STAY: Nothing looks as nice in the show ring as to have your dog standing and you can move away and showcase your dog without being in the way of the judge’s view. After your dog understands the ‘stand” command, teach him to stay in place while he is standing: • Have your dog stand using the Watch Me and Stand commands. Make sure he is standing comfortably by checking to see that the dog’s legs are under the body for correct balance. Put the palm of your hand in front of his face and say “Stay”. Step away and turn directly in front of your dog. If your dog tries to move with you, again say STAY and hold the DOG back with the leash, as you step directly in front of your dog, do not move back any farther until they have mastered this command. It may take several repetitions

until your dog understands staying in place. If your dog does not move, praise him quietly with GOOD STAY. Have the dog only stand and stay in place a few seconds before you say OK and give a treat. When your dog fully understands Stand and Stay, you can take one or two steps back and have them learn to stand in place from a short distance and increase the time of the stand – stay in short increments. STEP UP: This command is generally used when your dog has mastered the stand and stay commands and you are able to move a few steps away. What you want to do is teach your dog to self stack on the floor and move a foot that is out of position by using your voice and lead. If you can get the dog to step forward upon command they will usually self correct into a better position. This is super easy to teach the dog and for them to learn. All the handler has to do is take a slight step backward away from the dog and ask the dog to “Step up”. If you want the dog to move a specific foot, you can apply slight pressure to the lead on the side you want them to move their foot. You can use a treat to lure the dog into position. As soon as the dog moves, praise and treat. Once the dog understands the concept, you can teach the dog to line up their front or rear feet against a board on the floor or other relatively flat obstacle so they learn the correct position for their feet. BACKUP: This command is very helpful in the show ring when you and your dog may be crowded by a tight group of handlers who are in front of you and you need to back up, but still keep your dog in a show stand. Or, it could be used to keep your dog engaged and looking good when the judge is turning and observing all the dogs in the ring. With your dog standing in front of you (facing you), preferably with one of the dogs sides against a wall or in a hall way, take a step toward him and when he takes a step backwards, say “Backup” and treat. Most dogs will learn this very quickly. The purpose of doing this against a wall or in a hallway is to teach your dog to move straight back and not swing to the side. All of these commands can also be used to prevent boredom in the ring when you are in a large class. When it is not your turn to display your dog, you can play around a little with your dog while keeping an eye on the judge. If you know the judge will glance in your area, you can quickly ask your dog WATCH, STAND and STAY in a self stacked position.! *Hand stacking is manually placing each leg in position to show the correct conformation of the dog. Hand stacking is done on the table for the exam or on the floor during the judge’s review of the class. Dachshund Club of America Winter 2016

DCA Board Minutes continued from page 19

Treasurer’s Report: Ken Levison distributed copies of the DCA 990EZ form he submitted to the IRS for 2015. Copies of Account Activity from January 1, 2016 to April 4, 2016 were shared with Board members. He reported the treasury was doing well in the first quarter. Standing Committees:

Brochure Committee – Vicki Spencer reported Trudi Kawami had indicated she may not want to continue with overseeing the brochure committee. She will let Vicki know after this DCA. If she does not want to continue overseeing this committee Jerry Cerasini volunteered to take it over. Pedigree Research Committee – The Boltons are wanting to turn over the pedigree research responsibilities. Cyndy Senff has researched what is needed. She suggested buying the Ped/Win program. She feels it is cheap and reliable. Motion was made and passed for DCA to purchase the Ped/Win program to be used with the Pedigree Research project.

Judges Education Committee/Mentor application

– Ken Levison distributed a Mentor Application he would like to see DCA adopt. After reviewing the document five changes will be made. Under minimum requirements, application will read, a mentor will be required to have 12 years’ experience in breeding and exhibiting and they

must be a DCA member. Number 2 in the questioner section will be omitted. #5 Will read: How many champions of record have you bred? Finally, My resume and List of Litters are attached will be omitted. Motion was made and adopted to accept the Mentor Application with the above changes.

Special Committees:

Technology committee – the Board discussed various uses of technology involving Board meetings. New York cooperate law states a person may attend by teleconference or video conference if all members can hear. If the Board decides to pursue this, the ability to use teleconferences will need to be added to the DCA bylaws. Most hotels have speaker phones available for use. The expense is believed to be around $200.00. The Board would like the committee to look into using technology in two areas. The first is the use of technology by Board members to be able to participate in Board meetings they are unable to attend. The second issue the Board would like the committee to investigate is the use of electronic voting by DCA members. Barn Hunt recommendation from Versatility Committee – Julie Couch sent a report from her committee opposing adding Barn Hunt as a qualifying event in the Versatility program. The committee’s concerns is the possibility of injury to dachshunds. Cheryl raised additional concerns that putting on a Barn Hunt is beyond the ability of most clubs due to the equipment required, plus it is not an AKC sponsored event. Without objection the Board will take the

committee’s recommendation to not add Barn Hunt to the Versatility program.

DCA 2017 National Specialty – Walter Jones asked for a clarification concerning hiring ring stewards for DCA events during the Nationals. DCA will pay for one professional ring steward for each DCA ring. If other ring stewards are needed volunteers will be used. A motion was made and adopted for the DCA Board meeting to occur on Sunday morning May 28, 2017.

DCA 2018 National Specialty – It was reported Southwest Ohio DC has volunteered to host DCA 2018. David Temple, President of SODC, was instructed to send a proposal to Cheryl by August 1. Cheryl reported DC of Santa Ana Valley may also be interested in hosting DCA 2018. She will check with the DCSAV membership when she returns home. Adjourned for dinner: 6:05 p.m. Reconvened: 7:00 p.m.

New Business: Clarification of standing rule concerning complaints about a DCA member from a nonDCA members - Without objection it was agreed if a DCA breeder receives a complaint from a non-DCA member, the breeder will be notified there was a complaint made. Cheryl will compose a letter to be sent to any DCA breeder who receives a complaint from a non-DCA member. She will distribute a form

PROPOSED BREED STANDARD REV The Dachshund Club of America Board of Directors voted to present the following proposed breed standard revision to the membership for discussion at the next DCA Annual Meeting on Thursday, May 25, 2017 at 9:00 a.m. at the Crowne Plaza Louisville Airport, 830 Phillips Lane, Louisville, KY 40209-1387. Voting on the proposed breed standard revision is PENDING AKC APPROVAL. If approved by the AKC, voting will take place by written ballot sent to each member after the Annual Meeting. Members in good standing will have no less than 30 days to return their ballot. The entire breed standard is not shown, only the sections that are affected by the proposed revision.

Two-colored Dachshunds include black, chocolate, wild boar, gray (blue) and fawn (Isabella), each with deep, rich tan or cream markings over the eyes, on the sides of the jaw and underlip, on the inner edge of the ear, front, breast, sometimes on the throat, inside and behind the front legs, on the paws and around the anus, and from there to about one-third to one-half of the length of the tail on the underside. Undue prominence of tan or cream markings is undesirable. A small amount of white on the chest is acceptable but not desirable. Nose and nails – in the case of black dogs, black; for chocolate and other colors, dark brown, but selfcolored is acceptable.

SMOOTH DACHSHUND

Dappled dachshunds – The dapple (merle) pattern is expressed as lighter-colored areas contrasting with the darker base color, which may be any acceptable color. Neither the light nor the dark color should predominate. Nose and nails are the same as for one- and two-colored Dachshunds. Partial or wholly blue (wall) eyes are as acceptable as dark eyes. A large area of white on the chest of a dapple is permissible.

Color of Hair – Although base color is immaterial, certain patterns and basic colors predominate. One-colored dachshunds include red and cream, with or without a shading of interspersed dark hairs. A small amount of white on the chest is acceptable, but not desirable. Noes and nails – black. 52

letter to Board members to look over and make suggestions. In the meantime, she will send a letter to the DCA member who had received a complaint stating one has been made. DCA national performance judges’ nomination process – Cheryl reported she has a concern with the number of DCA members who nominate earthdog and field trial judges without first verifying if the person they are nominating is eligible and willing to accept. In this past nomination process there were several people nominated to judge who declined the nomination when she contacted them, and in some cases, were not even eligible to be nominated. Cheryl asked for the Board’s input on finding a way where nominated judges know they are being nominated and that they are, indeed eligible to judge. Without objection it was agreed that the nomination card for earthdog and field trial judges will not be placed in the membership renewal letter, requiring instead for members to get the nomination form from the members only section of the DCA website. This form will require the nominee’s signature verifying he/she is eligible to judge and is willing to be placed on the nomination form. Condition of plaques and medallions in the Donation and Buy Back Program – Vicki Spencer expressed a concern regarding the condition of some of the donated medallions being sent to clubs to be used as awards. Motion was made and adopted to give Sheila Parish the authority to reject medallions she feels are not suitable to award. Motion was made and adopted to instruct Sheila to replace any substandard medallions that have not already been awarded.

Ratification of suggested changes in the wording of the Breed Standard per AKC – A Board member asked for a point of clarification concerning the word changes made by AKC concerning the Breed Standard revision. The process is if Mary Beth accepts the changes, she will then request the revision be placed on the AKC Board agenda. The AKC wording recommendation was “pure white dogs with no body spots, except on the head, are to be disqualified.” This will be added to the disqualification list. Ken will send an email to the Board explaining the process for a Breed Standard Revision. Breed genetic testing – Cyndy Senff passed out information concerning the AKC Bred with HEART program. She reported there are about 174 AKC breeds who require some type of health testing and 26 breeds that state no recommended testing. Dachshunds are one of the 26 breeds that do not require any type of health testing. Cyndy suggests having OFA patella and PRA testing required for dachshunds. Discussion followed. The consensus was, if we impose testing, there should be a valid reason. The question arose asking why would we require heart or PRA testing when it is not a problem in all varieties or sizes of dachshunds. There are no tests for the two biggest concerns in dachshunds, which are Cushing’s Disease and disc disease. The Board went into Executive session at 8:40 and reconvened at 8:50.

Membership – DCA Memberships for Akie and Sarah Vemura, Karen Bronson and Shirley Menard were approved. Meeting adjourned at 9:05 to be reconvened Saturday morning at 7:30 a.m. Meeting reconvened May 7, 2016 at 7:35 a.m. Breed Standard Revision – The previous night Denny distributed a proposed description of piebalds to Board Members. It was suggested a definition was needed to explain the difference between ticking and spots. It was noted there are two amendments that need addressing. A provision for a section concerning piebalds A section for disqualification. Without objection the Board accepted the suggested changes made by AKC. Ken will contact Mary Beth at AKC. She in turn will add our breed revision to the agenda for the next AKC Board meeting. Once the AKC Board approves the revision, it will be published in the DCA Newsletter. It will then be discussed at the next annual meeting. At this point Ballots will be sent to the membership for voting. The voting results will go back to the Board for approval. Motion was made and adopted to have one vote on the amended standard. The next meeting will be held in Louisville Kentucky. The date to be determined later. Meeting adjourned at 8:14 a.m. Submitted by Vicki Spencer ________________________________________

VISION – PENDING AKC APPROVAL Brindle is a pattern (as opposed to a color) in which black or dark stripes occur over the entire body although in some specimens the pattern may be visible only in the tan points. Piebald is a pattern (as opposed to a color) with clearly defined areas and/or patches of white on any allowed one-colored or twocolored dogs. Two-colored piebald patterned dogs may show tan markings on the face and around the anus. There are no patches of lighter shadings within the colored areas as in the dapple pattern. Ticking in the white areas is acceptable. Eye color, eye rims, nose and lips are well pigmented and in accordance with the base color; eyes are never partially or wholly blue as distinguished from the dapple pattern. Eyes partially or wholly blue is a disqualification. Head must not be more than 50% white and color(s) other than white must cover both ears, back and front, and extend without interruption from the ears over both eyes. A head of more than 50% white; or white on any portion of the ears, back or front, or around the eyes is a disqualification. Pure white dogs with no body spots except on the head are to be disqualified. Nails may be partially or wholly white.

Sable – the sable pattern consists of a uniform dark overlay on red dogs. The overlay hairs are double-pigmented, with the tip of each hair much darker than the base color. The pattern usually displays a widow’s peak on the head. Nose, nails and eye rims are black. Eyes are dark, the darker the better. Colors or patterns other than those specified above are a disqualification. DISQUALIFICATIONS: Knuckling over of front legs In the piebald pattern: eyes partially or wholly blue, a head of more than 50% white, white covering any portion of the ears, back and front, or around the eyes, and pure white with no body spots except on the head. Colors or patterns other than those specified above.

Delegate’s Report for September 12, 2016 Held in Newark, NJ by Larry Sorenson AKC Delegate for Dachshund Club of America 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/Sept2016 .pdf?_ga=1.251714057.1631128781.1474330304 Delegate Meeting: Voting: There was a vote on the proposed amendment to Chapter 3, Sections 4, 5, 7, 17, and 19, of the Rules Applying to Dog Shows. This amendment would in Section 4, change the italicized paragraph to become part of the rule rather than a Board clarification, with no change to the wording; in Section 5, it would add the statement regarding the first day of a multipleday show being used to calculate age; in Section 7, it would change the italicized definition of professional handlers to be part of the rule, not a Board clarification, with no change to the wording. Additionally, in Sections 17 and 19, it would change the italicized paragraph to become part of the Rule, not a Board clarification. The only change to the wording is removing the effective date. The amendment was proposed by the Dog Show Rules Committee and brought forward with a positive recommendation by the Board. The amendment to Chapter 3, Sections 4, 5, 7, 17, and 19 of the Rules Applying to Dog Shows received a two-thirds in the affirmative vote and were adopted with an immediate effective date. This is a good change, basically house cleaning. LLS The final vote was on the proposed amendment to Chapter 6, Section 9, of the Rules Applying to Dog Shows. This amendment would allow entries in any form to be accepted for 24 hours after the closing date and time when it falls on a postal holiday. The amendment was proposed by the Board based on a staff recommendation. The amendment to Chapter 6, Section 9, of the Rules Applying to Dog Shows received a two thirds vote in the affirmative and the

amendment was adopted with an immediate effective date. This was already being done, the rules needed to catch-up. LLS Reading to be voted on in December: The Executive Secretary read a proposed amendment to Chapter 6, Section 9, of the Rules Applying to Dog Shows as follows: The proposed amendment to Chapter 6, Section 9, of the Rules Applying to Dog Shows, would extend the closing time for entries to be no later than 11:59 p.m. It will be published in two issues of the online AKC Gazette and you will be asked to vote on it at the December 2016 meeting. The full text is on the worksheet previously e-mailed. This sounds like a good idea at first, however it is strongly opposed by superintendents. The cost to AKC, superintendents and the clubs is more than the return. Your delegate recommends a no vote. LLS NOMINATING COMMITTEE CANDIDATES Nomination as of this date: Rita Biddle, Ingham County KC Dominic Carota, Pharaoh Hound Club of America Dr. Gregory Paveza , Elm City KC Harvey Wooding, Westminster KC PETITION CANDATES: (still have over a month to petition a nomination) Jeffrey Ball, Ramapo KC Thomas Powers, KC of Beverly Hills Julian Prager, Central Florida KC John Ronald, Samoyed Club of America Daniel Smyth, Esq, Burlington County KC Financial Report: Joe Baffuto, CFO, gave the financial report as follows: Great day everyone. Thank you so much for attending here this morning. I’m delighted to present the financial performance report of the American Kennel Club through August 31, 2016. As AKC continues to take evolving steps along with future growth and we all begin to embark upon change, hopefully moving from a hot summer to a cool fall season, I’m pleased to announce American Kennel Club’s core operations have not changed from my last report and our successes are continuing into the latter half of 2016. Let’s begin by examining our year-todate summary of results. Total revenue of $43 million has been offset by total expenses of $38.6 million, which reflects an operating income of $4.4 million, which is somewhat

below, yet extremely successful, to the comparative income of $5.7 million at this time last year. Let’s take a deeper dive into the details. In our comparison of year-to-date revenue, we are up by $2.8 million. This is an overall 7 percent increase. What have been our most successful drivers? Let’s move further along down the revenue road. Our top revenue increases by dollar amounts include all registration items, including dogs, litters, pedigrees and our canine partner listings, amongst others, amounting to $1.5 million. Next, our royalty and sponsorships have increased by more than half a million dollars, and 25 percent. Also, our e-commerce programs have grown by greater than $200,000 so far this 2016 year, which represents a 65 percent increase. Lastly, revenue generated from our marketplace platform has jumped by 52 percent, or $185,000 this year. Taking a year-over-year comparative analysis of our core registration volumes, we can see our outstanding successes. Our litter volume for the year so far is 151,000, an increase of 7 percent. Our dog registrations are currently 359,000, which is 11 percent above the eight-month period of 2015. There is more to the report in the full minutes. It is GOOD to see the total numbers for individual registration number is up. LLS

Things happening with AKC: Notes from the AKC Board Minutes and what’s new at AKC on the AKC website. REGULATIONS FOR EARTHDOG (proposal) Earthdogs - Allowing Practice Prior to a Test The Board reviewed a recommendation to modify the current Earthdog Regulations to allow clubs, at their option, to provide practice sessions prior to or following a test. Currently practice sessions are not allowed within 24 hours of the start of the test. This modification will provide additional opportunities to introduce new participants to the sport. The HEC Delegate Committee discussed this idea at their June 2016 meeting and unanimously supported it. This will be discussed further at the October meeting. This will be discussed, I don’t know if or when it may be voted on. LLS Group Realignment: There was a discussion on the renewed interest in Group Realignment. Following a motion by Mr. Kalter, seconded by Mr. Feeney, it was VOTED (unanimously; absent: Ms. McAteer) to appoint a committee to study and to make recommendations with regard to revising the present Variety Group structure at shows. The Committee is to be chaired by Dr. Thomas Davies, who will appoint the rest of the committee. Dr. Davies indicated that initially, the committee members will be Karen Burgess, John Nielsen, and Maggie Strouse. The support for this is gaining momentum. LLS continued on page 70...

The path to a

Triple Champion uying a good dog and seeing what the two of you can accomplish together is a wonderful journey, but to do that with a dog that you bred is a real thrill. On February 11, 2009, Reba, (GCH TC MACH Obsession’s I’ll Take Your Heart SL RN MXB MJS XF T2B ME) was born. Her dam, Bubbles (TC MACH2 PACH White Ridge Sparkling Star CD RE MXG MJG MXP7 MXPG MJP5 MJPS PAX2 XF SE CGC VC) was the very first longhaired dachshund to become a Triple Champion. Not only was Reba’s dam a triple champion, but her big brother, Dozer (TC MACH Obsession’s Ruff ‘N Ready SL RN MXB MJB OF T2B2 JE CGC VC) had become a Triple Champion a few years earlier. Both Reba and Dozer were sired by Crush (DC Briardach’s Lucky In Love RE SE CGC VC.) Now that’s what I call a good family tree! I think that Reba is the first Grand Champion to become a Triple Champion as well. From the beginning I knew Reba was special. She was a very active and loving puppy. With lots of energy and a willingness and enthusiasm to learn that she inherited from her mom I have always had a blast training her. Her name fits her well. I took a line from the old Speedy Gonzalez cartoon who used to say “Arriba, Arriba! Andale, Andale!” which means “Get up let’s go!” and named her Reba. Her registered name comes from an old Reba McEntire song, “I’ll Take Your Heart” because that is exactly what she did to me! There has been nothing I have asked of her that she did not do with gusto and lots of kisses!! She quickly earned her Breed Championship and Grand Championship but getting her Field Championship took a little longer as she really liked to RUN!!! It was fitting that in 2013 she took honors at DCA Nationals as the Best Field Trial Dog in Breed.

B

GCH TC Obsession’s I’ll Take Your Heart SL RN MXB MJS XF T2B ME

At Nationals in 2016, Reba finished her Master Earth Dog title at the host Earth Dog Test. She then went on to qualify in Master Earth Dog at the DCA Earth Dog Test. That, along with a qualifying scores in Master Agility and Rally Novice set her up to tie for the win in the 2016 Triathlon. As Triathlon Dog of the Year, she followed in her mother’s footsteps again as Bubbles won the Triathlon in 2015 and Bubbles’s other son Duskey won it in 2013. What a dam! (by the way Bubbles, at 13 years old, is still actively competing in agility and is as playful as a puppy- thank you Ronda Bermke for this truly awesome dog!) Reba approached agility with the same enthusiasm that she did everything else. It took a while for our teamwork to mesh as I am pretty slow and she is fast. I had to learn to speed up because she wasn’t going to slow down to wait for me to tell her what to do and so she made up a lot of her own courses often taking two or three extra obstacles for good measure while I caught up. On June 11th, 2016 it all came together and she earned her Master Agility Championship making her a Triple Champion. You know, when you start a journey with a new dog you often have high hopes and lofty goals. The path to reach those goals is full of trials and tribulations, the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. But if you and your dog remember to have fun along the way you can’t help but build a wonderful bond with the dog and then those goals become quite secondary to the love and commitment you have for each other. At a little over 7 years old I hope that our journey is just beginning with many more happy days living, training, and loving together.!

AKC News continued from page 54 Uniform Judges Book There was a motion by Ms. Cruz, seconded by Mr. Gladstone, and it was voted (unanimously, absent: Ms. McAteer) to require all superintendents to utilize a uniform judges book, effective for shows held on or after January 1, 2017. This reaffirmed a decision made previously which was relayed to the superintendents at least two years ago.

This is a good move and overdue. LLS AKC NOHS Program Enhancements The AKC National Owner-Handled Series (NOHS) continues to gain popularity with exhibitors, resulting in an increasing number of clubs offering the NOHS at their events. Two changes were being considered with the intent of bringing greater consistency to the competition. 1) Convert the NOHS Policies & Best Practices into regulations, and 2) Add more structure to the NOHS judging panel requirements. The following changes to the NOHS judging requirements are being considered: (A) A different judge is to be assigned to the same NOHS group for each day of a weekend/cluster/circuit (approved by the Board at the April 2016 meeting). (B) A different judge is to be assigned to the regular and NOHS group/BIS at an event. (C) Judges will not be approved to judge a breed, the NOHS Variety Group of which the breed is a part and NOHS Best in Show at the same show. (D) The same person cannot judge all of the NOHS groups at an event. (E) To be eligible to judge an NOHS group, a judge must be approved as a regular judge for at least one breed in that group or must be approved for at least three groups. A different judge is to be assigned to the regular and NOHS group/BIS at an event. The three group option was added based upon a motion by Mr. Ashby, seconded by Mr. Kalter, with the VOTE (affirmative: Mr. Ashby, Mr. Kalter, Mr. Dok, Mr. Arnold, Mr. Feeney, Mr. Gladstone, Mr. Wooding, Mr. Menaker; opposed: Dr. Gavin, Dr. Davies, Dr. Battaglia; abstaining: Ms. Cruz; absent: Ms. McAteer.) Good changes, NOHS event is becoming very popular. LLS

Letters to and from the editor Hi Members and Subscribers, I hope all of you had a great holiday season and were able to celebrate with family and friends. My apologies for the late magazine, it usually is mailed right before Christmas, but due to many circumstances beyond my control it’s a couple weeks late. I spent way too much time at the vet recently - numerous illnesses with my dogs, losing my very special boy Lazer to cancer, a few family health issues, etc. It’s been a rough couple months. Thank you again advertisers for helping to support this publication. And contributors - the club truly appreciates your time and talent. Don’t forget that the spring issue will be out before Nationals if you’re interested in advertising. I’m seeing a few more young people getting involved with our sport and even a few more litters being born. Hopefully this is a good sign for the dog fancy in general. Don’t forget the Whelping Box ads are only $10 and can be sent in at the last minute before publication. Periodically I remind people about the free ad if your dog has achieved a Versatility Title through DCA.

On the cover: Huge congratulations to Denny Van Hook on another Triple Champion! I wonder if dachsies have more AKC Triple Champions than other breeds. They certainly can do everything! Also, please remember to send your yearly dues in to Georjan Bridger if you haven’t already. Happy New Year everyone, let’s hope for a good one!
