DUAL CHAMPION SHARPREE’S LIGHTNING BUG IN A BOTTLE! CD BN RN TDU AX MXJ JE CGC Bred, owned and handled by Sharon McDonald

As a breeder, I hoped to somehow find a dog that reminded me of my foundation love, Maggie. Maggie is the dog tattooed on my left calf. I swear to you, Evan has more “Maggie” in her than any dog in 3 generations. She stares into my eyes like Maggie. It’s not a needy stare, but more of looking into my soul and trying to read my mind She was my pick of the litter, not only for her structure, but seriously, for the way she stared at me and then reacted when I turned to meet her glance. There’s just an unexplainable connection. She barks in a tone same as Maggie and she responds to my happy praise, much like Maggie. There are times when the resemblance is uncanny. What a special joy. Congratulations Sharon and Evan on this amazing and continuing journey! 2

From his autobiogaphy: “A twenty pound Teckel was the one hunting dog that would fit into this environment as I finished my Ph.D. dissertation. I bought my first Teckel, Carla vom Rode in 1966, and she came back to the States with us. When I could get away on weekends to my parents’ country places upstate, Carla hunted rabbits, pheasants, and raccoons at night. She was the versatile dog that the German breed standard called for. I did not track wounded deer with Carla because this was strictly forbidden in the northern United States.”

Rally was originally introduced by the AKC in 2005. At that time, there were three (3) levels, Novice, Advanced and Excellent, leading to the highest title, the RAE. From my viewpoint, it became mundane, and viewed with not much excitement, as the sits, downs and walk-arounds were doldrums. Apparently that was the opinion of many exhibitors, as well. Therefore, the AKC took a second look at the program, putting a lot of time and thought in invigorating its Rally program.

HOPE FOR THE DIET-RELATED DILATED CARDIOMYOPATHY DILEMMA For several years, scientists have been investigating the increase in reported cases of dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) in dog breeds without a genetic predisposition to this disease. Other factors such as toxin exposure, infectious agents, and/or nutrition could contribute to disease development in these dogs, but diet has received the most attention. What is Dilated Cardiomyopathy? Dilated cardiomyopathy, or DCM, is a disease where the heart becomes enlarged and the muscle cannot contract or pump adequately to provide normal blood flow throughout the body. Clinical signs in dogs include increased heart rate, coughing, difficulty breathing, weakness, and fainting. Arrhythmias, congestive heart failure, or sudden death are also possible. Treatment involves the use of medications to support heart function and remove excess fluid from the lungs. Unfortunately, the disease is rarely reversible except in a small number of cases that respond to supplementation with the amino acid taurine.

With funding from the AKC Canine Health Foundation (CHF) Grant 02661: Investigation into Diet-Associated Dilated Cardiomyopathy in Dogs, a team of investigators at several US veterinary colleges screened apparently healthy dogs eating various diet types to better understand the extent of the problem and look for potential causes. They found higher levels of troponin in dogs eating diets that were grainfree or had peas, lentils, and potatoes as main ingredients.1 Troponin is a protein found only inside heart muscle cells. It leaks into the blood stream when heart muscle cells are damaged, making it a good biomarker or indicator of heart damage. Investigators hypothesized that these increased troponin levels indicated low-level heart muscle cell damage in these otherwise healthy dogs. While the investigation into diet-related DCM continues, CHF awarded a Summer Veterinary Student

Educational Grant to Dana Haimovitz, a veterinary student at the University of Florida, to assist Principal Investigator Dr. Darcy Adin with data collection and analysis. Ms. Haimovitz (class of 2023) analyzed data on 20 dogs eating grain-free diets with subclinical heart damage from the original study. Physical exams, blood tests, and echocardiograms were performed on these dogs every three months for one year to see if their subclinical heart damage would improve after a diet change. In fact, troponin levels and left ventricular internal systolic diameter (a measure of heart contraction or function) decreased after one year of eating a

SOME TICK BITES CAN CAUSE A LIFETHREATENING MEAT ALLERGY

patients won’t exhibit symptoms for at least two to six hours after ingesting a meal. Thus, a connection between the meal and the allergic reaction is not easily made.

By Dr. Elena Frid

The symptoms that one should look out for are:

Many of you already know about the various infections that a tick bite can transmit, sometimes leading to life-altering diseases and symptoms. But did you know that a tick bite may also lead to a meat allergy? Alpha-gal allergy came on the medical radar in 2002, when a number of patients exhibited an allergic reaction to the cancer drug Cetuximab. It was later discovered that Cetuximab contains the same alpha-gal sugar as meat. A connection between tick bites and meat allergy was made only after the scientist involved in this research, Thomas Platts-Mills of the University of Virginia, was himself bitten by a tick and developed the allergy. Alpha-gal is a sugar that is found in mammalian meat such as cows, sheep, and pigs. The allergy often stems from exposure to the lone star tick, which contains the same sugar in its saliva. Researchers from the University of Virginia estimate there are over 1,500 cases of alpha-gal allergy in the U.S. These cases are more prevalent in areas where the lone star tick is found. The allergic reaction is often difficult to diagnose clinically, because it is delayed. Most

• • • • • • • • • •

Stuffy or runny nose Nausea/vomiting Swollen tongue Indigestion Hives or rash Itchy skin Sneezing Shortness of breath Exacerbation of Asthma symptoms Anaphylactic reaction with throat closure

If you suspect a meat allergy, your allergist can perform blood or skin testing to confirm the diagnosis. If your allergic reaction is severe, I recommend carrying an EpiPen. Often the treatment is avoiding the allergen, in this case mammalian meat products. However, in my practice, I have seen patients whose meat allergies and other sensitivities improved after their underlying medical problem has been treated. Thus, after the tick-borne infection, or inflammation, or autoimmune process is resolved, the meat allergy goes away. It’s essential to avoid re-exposure to ticks. continued on next page...

LYME DISEASE IN DOGS: SYMPTOMS, TESTS, TREATMENT, AND PREVENTION By Harriet Meyers (AKC) Lyme disease, also known as Lyme borreliosis, is a bacterial illness that can be transmitted to humans, dogs, and other animals by certain species of ticks. It is caused by the spiral-shaped bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi that is carried inside a tick and gets into a dog or person’s bloodstream through a tick bite. Once in the bloodstream, the bacteria can travel to different parts of the body and cause problems in specific organs or locations, such as joints, as well as overall illness.

reported each year in Southern Quebec and the Maritime Provinces. How do Ticks Get on People and Dogs? Ticks don’t jump or fly; they can only crawl. They get onto their host by waiting at the tips of vegetation. When a dog or person brushes against a bush, for example, the tick quickly grabs on and then crawls to find a place to bite. What are the symptoms of Lyme Disease in Dogs? Lyme disease is, unfortunately, a fairly common canine disease. Typical symptoms in dogs include: • • • •

Fever Loss of appetite Reduced energy Lameness (can be shifting, intermittent, and recurring) • Generalized stiffness, discomfort, or pain • Swelling of joints • Symptoms can progress to kidney failure, which can be fatal. Serious cardiac and neurological effects can also occur.

Given the seriousness of Lyme disease, it’s important to be aware of tick prevention and treatment for dogs. Where Do Ticks Live? The ticks that carry Lyme disease are especially likely to be found in tall grasses, thick brush, marshes, and woods — waiting to latch onto your dog when he passes by. A tick can transmit the disease once it has been attached to a dog for 24 to 48 hours. First named when a number of cases occurred in Lyme, Connecticut, in 1975, the disease can be hard to detect and can cause serious, ongoing health problems in both dogs and people. Lyme disease happens in every state, but infection risks vary. Over 95% of cases are from the Northeast, the Upper Midwest, and the Pacific coast, although with recent changes in deforestation, migrating deer, and bird populations, percentage rates in these areas are constantly changing. A small number of cases crop up each year along the West Coast, especially Northern California. In Canada, Lyme-positive dogs are found mostly in southern Ontario and southern Manitoba. A smaller number of cases are

The primary carrier of Lyme disease is the blacklegged tick (Ixodes scapularis), also called the “deer tick” or “bear tick.” The tick acquires the Lyme disease bacterium when it feeds on an animal that has been infected, such as a mouse, deer, or other mammal, and then transmits the bacterium to the next animal it feeds on. How are Dogs Tested for Lyme Disease? Diagnosis is made by a combination of history, physical signs, and diagnostics. For dogs, the two blood tests for diagnosing Lyme disease are called the C6 Test and Quant C6 test. Veterinarians perform both.

The C6 test detects antibodies against a protein called “C6”. Presence of the antibodies suggests an active Lyme infection. The C6 antibodies can be detected three to five weeks after an infected tick bites a dog and may be found in the bloodstream even before the dog shows signs of illness. The next step is to do a Quant C6 test. This, along with urinalysis will help determine if antibiotic treatment is necessary. How is Lyme Disease Treated? Treatment includes antibiotics, usually for at least 30 days. This often resolves symptoms quickly, but in some cases, the infection will persist and prolonged medication may be needed. Treatment can also include other therapies aimed at resolving or relieving specific symptoms. Can I Catch Lyme Disease From my Dog? Dogs are not a direct source of infection for people. Lyme disease can’t be transmitted from one pet to another, nor from pets to humans, except through tick bites. However, a carrier tick could come into your house on your dog’s fur and get on you. If your dog is diagnosed with Lyme disease, you and any other pets have probably been in the same outdoor environment and may also be at risk, so it is a good idea to consult with your physician and veterinarian to see whether you should test other pets or family members. Other Canine Diseases Carried by Ticks Ticks can also carry several other less common but serious bacterial diseases affecting dogs, including anaplasmosis and babesiosis. Anaplasmosis can involve symptoms similar to those for Lyme disease. Babesiosis can present with a wide range of symptoms, from sudden and severe shock, high fever, and dark urine to a slowly progressing infection with more subtle clinical signs. Diagnosis of both diseases includes blood tests similar to those used to check for Lyme disease. Sometimes, dogs and people can become sick with “co-infection” of multiple tick-borne diseases, where more than one type of diseasecausing bacteria is transmitted through a tick bite. This situation can make diagnosis and treatment even more challenging and difficult. How Can I Prevent My Dog From Getting Lyme Disease or Other Tick-borne Illnesses? Recommendations on preventing ticks include these from AKC’s Chief Veterinary Officer Dr. Jerry Klein: Inspect your dogs and yourself daily for ticks continued on page 12...

These articles will be a continuing feature in the DCA Newsletter. Thank you to Claire Mancha and Kathy Lockyer for initiating the research involved in order to share such an important part of Dachshund history.

Fran Colonna was born in Charleston, West Virginia. She and Her husband Gary now call Lansing, Kansas home. Fran began her long career and love of dogs at the spry age of six when she showed a Beagle for father and uncle. Her family also showed Foxhounds. Fran’s uncle called their place Heather Merchant Farm. Shortly after Fran’s entrance into the dog show world, she borrowed a dog from an exhibitor and entered Juniors. This tenacity has proven to be a trait that has moved her through many adventures with dogs, dog people, the military family she married into and with her own careers. At the age of twelve Fran got her first dachshund, a smooth, Handsome Hans. In Fran’s words, “He wasn’t very good but I loved him dearly and was crushed when he died of liver disease two years later.” The dog that hooked Fran for life on Dachshunds was a red wire boy, sired by a Heying-Teckel dog and a smooth Kleetal bitch. Fran bought that wire at the age of fourteen in 1954. Fran said, “He was a red dog with a gorgeous head and good coat and was my constant companion for fourteen years.” Fran stated in her biography for judging Longhair dachshunds at DCA that, “John Cook always hated that story because he was so against cross coat breeding.” Fran stated, “In those days wires were like crocodiles but her red dog had a lovely temperament. Fran’s father said they were a Presbyterian family and the dog was too, therefore, he was named John Calvin Shagmore. In 1972 Fran bought her all-time favorite wire, CH Nonsuch Great Expectations which became her base bitch for her wire line. Fran’s journey into the longhair variety began when Gary was stationed at Fort Belvoir, VA in 1971. There Fran met Mary Howell of the famous Bayard Longhairs. A great friendship was developed, traveling to shows together and even breeding a few litters together, including a red Cardinal daughter. Fran shares that some of her proudest wins included a longhair which was a multi Best in Show winner and placed at Westminster with a Group two. Another longhair bitch went winners bitch, best of winners, best of variety and best of breed at DCA nationals. A wire, Fran bred went winners bitch and best of variety at another DCA national. Gary was transferred to Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas in 1983. Shortly after that Fran shares, “Gary encouraged her to apply for her license to judge dachshunds.” That led to Fran eventually judging the Hound Group. Fran has judged the nationals and for the host show at nationals multiple times, judging Longs once, 10

Dachshund Club of America Summer 2022

Smooths once and Wires four times. She was scheduled to judge 2022 host shows for the nationals. Sadly, she had a fall right before the shows and was unable to complete her assignment. Fran has dabbled in showing other breeds including Afghans. All were finished and Grand Champions, but none were campaigned. Fran recounts. “Just beautiful, aloof, easy house dogs, just adored them.” Her first Afghan was purchased in 1988 from Peter Belmont. When Fran was asked about memorable moments she described one judging assignment, “Probably judging at Old Dominion in a howling rainstorm. The tents blew over, the water was over my shoe tops. We put the dogs on the yellow Moss-bow long tables and gaited them down the length of the table in the pouring rain. Even the white picket fences around the rings blew over. Crates got thrown around too.” Many years ago, my husband, Tom, met Fran for the first time when she awarded our longhair, CH DC Sausage Stables Sir Wonagain SL VC RN CGC, the variety at the Greater Portland Dachshund Club specialties. Tom and “Sam” are pictured in this article. Sam was bred by Miki Perry. I have had the pleasure of working with Fran on the DCA Board of Directors of which she has served on for multiple decades. Fran has served many clubs over the years including the Metropolitan Washington Dachshund Club, Heart of America Dachshund Club, Leavenworth Kennel Club and the Columbine Dachshund Club. In March of 2022 Fran judged her last all-breed show at the Heart of America Club, Inc. at Kansas City. On Sunday she was honored by the dog world as she judged the Hound group. Remarkably, with all of Fran’s involvement in the dog world she worked for the Federal Civil Service, raised four children, John, Stephen, Kathryn and Kelly. Fran and the family made the moves and adjustments that come with being a family in the military. Nineteen grandchildren and eight great grandchildren have been added to this family. After retiring from the FCS in 1991, Fran’s untiring energy continue her into a second career with Red Cross National Disaster program. I asked some of Fran’s close friends for one word that would describe her. Responses I received included vivacious, adventurous, tenacious and dedicated. Appropriately, the last response included dedicated to her family, friends and her breed. Fran’s word for herself is integrity!! by Kathy Lockyer

On dogs, look especially on the feet (and between toes), on lips, around eyes, ears (and inside ears), near the anus, and under the tail. Remove ticks stat. The quicker you find them the less likely your dog will contract a secondary illness related to tick bites. Learn the proper method of tick removal. Invest in a pair of fine tweezers used for this purpose. If you are unable to do so, consult with a veterinarian. sk your veterinarian to conduct a tick check at each exam. They’ll be able to find any you may have missed. Prevent ticks from jumping on your dog with one of the many veterinary-approved flea and tick preparations available on the market. Speak to your veterinarian to find the best and most appropriate product for your dog. Keep grass mowed as short as possible. Refrain from walking into grassy patches in endemic tick areas if you can. Get your dog vaccinated. Vaccination could prevent your dog from getting Lyme disease. They may not be appropriate for some dogs, so discuss with your vet.! _________________________________________

EMERGING EFFECTIVE CANCER OPTION IMMUNOTHERAPY HELPS THE BODY USE ITS OWN WEAPONS According to immunologist John Yanelli PhD, close to a tenth of the 70 million dogs in the United States will develop cancer. The risk increases with age. Over 50 percent of dogs over 10 will suffer from some type of cancer, and 25 percent of those will die from cancer. For some canine cancers, immunotherapy is more than the latest buzzword. It’s an effective treatment. Traditional cancer therapies either destroy cancers via radiation or surgery or, as in

12

Dachshund Club of America Summer 2022

chemotherapy, attack the dog’s cancer while also damaging his immune system. A big plus to immunotherapy is that it can be specific, targeting only abnormal cells and not affecting other normal cells. What Is Immunotherapy? Immunotherapy uses your dog’s own immune system to fight and destroy cancer cells. A healthy immune system recognizes and destroys abnormal cells every day in a healthy dog. While it’s normally triggered by the rapid rate at which cancer cells replicate, the immune system can be overtaken by cancer cells. They can multiply at too fast a rate for the immune system to react or the cancer cells somehow hide from immunesystem recognition. In these cases, the immune system may need to be stimulated or jump-started to recognize the cancer cells and attack them. A Developing Therapy There are some caveats to using immunotherapy.Much of the information on immunotherapy for dogs has been extrapolated from human studies. But the canine immune system has not been studied as extensively as the human immune system. The workhorse cells of the immune system, the lymphocytes, have not been fully characterized. This can make it harder to predict which dogs and which cancers are most likely to respond. Oncologist Kelly R. Hume, DVM, DACVIM, Associate Professor, Clinical Sciences at the New York State College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell emphasizes that it is difficult to determine which patients will benefit from immunotherapy and which therapies have trials and data backing their safety and efficacy. “One challenge with immunotherapy is predicting which patients will respond,” says Dr. Hume. “There is a lot of research going on both to find ways to increase the number of patients that respond to immunotherapies and to identify biomarkers that will predict which patients will respond. Because there are very few immunotherapies available in veterinary medicine, there are not yet many hurdles to commercializing these products. Practitioners and owners need to

be vigilant about requesting peer-reviewed efficacy and safety data on immunotherapy products that are commercially available.” Immunotherapy seems to work best with a smaller “cancer load,” which means many cancers respond best after radiation, surgery, or chemotherapy to shrink the cancer first. But that increases the expense of treatment and means more owner compliance is necessary. Limitations In fairness to this evolving therapy, cancers in dogs are not as extensively identified as are human cancers from both appearance (phenotype) and genetic (genotype) viewpoints. That makes it difficult to create unique immunotherapies that would be appropriate for an individual dog’s tumors. Dog breeds show different susceptibility to cancers and even variations in how cancers develop and respond to therapy in different breeds or lines within a breed. Much cancer research involves collaboration with human medical researchers. Kristy Richards MD PhD was a Cornell researcher who studied canine lymphoma and how the treatments could benefit both people and dogs. One area she explored was CAR (Chimeric Antigen Receptor) T cells. T cells are one of the immune system warriors that attack cancer cells and other pathogens. With CAR, an antibody becomes part of a T cell. Since it is on the surface, it can easily identify and bind with cancer cells. Of course, the T cell comes along with the antibody and can then kill the cancer cell. Dr. Richards described CAR as a “guided missile” heading for cancer cells. Cancer Vaccines Cornell is participating in a CAR national, multi-institutionalstudy evaluating an osteosarcoma vaccine for dogs. “The results arebeing analyzed elsewhere and results are not available yet,” says Dr. Hume, but it’s one of the comparative oncology projects that will hopefully benefit both people and dogs. For research on canine cancers, most of the work is done with patients with naturally occurring cancers. For many owners, participating in a clinical trial helps financially while also contributing to cancer knowledge. The first cancer vaccine to have widespread use is Oncept from Merial. This vaccine was designed to prevent metastases of melanoma (see October 2018, “Diagnosis of Melanoma”). In dogs, melanomas tend to occur in dark pigmented dogs such as Scottish Terriers and are not directly related to sun exposure. If the melanoma appears in the mouth or at nail beds, it tends to bevery aggressive with rapid spread to local lymph nodes and to the lungs. This vaccine includes DNA from the human melanocyte protein tyrosinase. Human tyrosinase is similar to the same enzyme in dogs and is part of pigment production. It is present in most melanomas. So when this vaccine is given, the dog mounts an immune response that cross reacts to both the human and canine tyrosinase, and goes after any melanoma cells. A rare side effect is the immune system indiscriminately going after a dog’s normal continued on page 16....

Immunotherapy continued from page 12 pigment cells as well as the cancer cells leading to depigmentation or a graying of the coat. Some concern has been expressed over the use of this vaccine, as the standard FDA clinical trials have not been completed. “The published data on the melanoma vaccine is a bit of a mixed bag,” says Dr. Hume. “One U.S. study shows a significant benefit, another does not. We do use the vaccine at Cornell, and our experience seems to mimic what is published. Some dogs seem to benefit, but others do not. “The dogs that seem to do best receive the vaccine in combination with other treatments, such as surgery and radiation therapy. There are some other things, such as tumor size and invasiveness, that we can use to help guide our decision making, but unfortunately there isn’t a perfect biomarker to help us predict who will benefit and who won’t,” she says. Veterinary colleges in Wisconsin, California, and Colorado are taking a different approach to canine cancer immunotherapy. They have started a five-year study using a universal “cancer

vaccine” as a preventive measure. In this case, the vaccine targets about 30 proteins found on cancer cells as a result of mutations. These proteins are not normally found on healthy dog cells, so the vaccine is designed to specifically target any abnormal cells that develop. The researchers hope to deter lymphoma, osteosarcoma, hemangiosarcoma, and mast cell tumors (mastocytomas). These are fairly common, deadly canine cancers. Autologous vaccines are being explored to help dogs with cancer. In an autologous vaccine, some of the dog’s own tumor cells are extracted, deactivated, and treated to stimulate an intense immune reaction. Multiple tumor antigens are present in the vaccine so theoretically the immune response should be very strong and very specific. This immunotherapy requires your veterinarian to send a sample of the tumor to a laboratory that then creates the vaccine. Your dog eventually receives enough vaccine for a minimum of three weekly injections. So far, the autologous vaccines have primarily been used against solid cancers such as anal sac adenocarcinomas and transitional cell carcinomas. Some dogs have seen regression of

their tumors, others have had tumors stabilize, and some have had no recurrence of a growth that was surgically removed. The Torigen Company has made personalized vaccines for 250 dogs and cats so far and will be publishing results soon. Bottom Line The best response comes from attacking cancer on multiple levels: immunotherapy, surgery, chemo, and radiation. “I think the future of cancer therapy involves a multimodal approach, meaning utilizing multiple different treatment strategies. There are some cancers where autologous vaccines might ultimately be part of a successful treatment approach,” says Dr. Hume. “It’s always important to remember that cancer isn’t just one type of disease. Therefore, treatment regimens need to be tailored to individual patients,” says Dr. Hume, so each battle must be individualized to each dog.!

SUPPORTING JUNIORS!!! DCA Juniors Committee Chair Melissa Heymann has been looking at ways to encourage Juniors to join DCA. The DCA Board recently passed a recommendation from the Juniors Committee to use the DCA Newsletter back cover to feature Junior members and their Best Junior wins. The Nationals Issue has always featured the DCA Best Junior Handler on the back cover. Many times the back cover goes unsold, so when it does, the DCA Newsletter editor, Lynne Dahlén, will now take submissions from DCA Junior Members to publish their Best Junior win photos on the back cover for free. Win photos can be emailed to her at lynnechuck83@twc.com. Photos must be accompanied by parental consent for publication (see sample wording at end of article). Melissa wants to bring in & support new Junior members, not only in conformation, but also from other AKC performance and companion events. We want to be sure they are aware of the scholarship opportunities available to them through their participation in dog sports. Melissa feels that Juniors should be a member of the parent club to gain more knowledge in a breed they are passionate about. Being active in a parent or local specialty club can teach them valuable life skills. Members also receive the DCA Newsletter that is loaded with information on all different aspects of the breed. Local Dachshund Club members should seek out Juniors showing dachshunds in their area and invite them to join a local specialty and the parent club. Local clubs always need help putting on shows and clubs can get creative at age appropriate responsibilities to put on a specialty, field trial or other dog events. We are also excited to announce that soon-to-age-out DCA Junior Member Ava Hata has accepted an invitation to write a Juniors column for the DCA Newsletter! Ava has had an amazing Juniors Career and is an outspoken advocate for all things Juniors! Ava has participated in conformation juniors at the highest level, placing at Westminster. Ava also

The Juniors Committee is excited to offer a seminar for Juniors at DCA 2022 on the Illustrated Standard. This will include each Junior receiving a copy of the Illustrated Standard with Melissa and Emi Pedraza leading a discussion of featured sections. We are so lucky to have 2 accredited teachers to lead this large age range of 8-17 yrs. Discussion will be followed with a handson from several members volunteering dogs. Following the hands-on, the Juniors will be invited to bring their own dachshund for help in reviewing the structure and strengths of their own dogs related to showing in Juniors. The idea behind this seminar originally came from former Junior & Juniors advocate Angela Lloyd. We are happy to finally bring it to fruition post-covid.! _____________________________________________________________

An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure – Benjamin Franklin

D

achshunds are notoriously opinionated and tenacious – they are also quite “mouthy”. When humans fail to read and acknowledge their communication signals they have a innate tendency to enforce their opinions with barking and even biting – behaviors that have served them well when hunting prey often much larger than themselves. Dachshunds aren’t just more likely than other breeds to bite people – they are MUCH more likely. Dachshund owners need to be aware and prepared in order to protect their dogs and their dollars and especially their homeowners insurance. As we emerge from the pandemic we are going to find the world a dramatically changed place. People are much more concerned about threats to their personal safety. They are likely to resort to legal action in response to injuries from dog bites. Most of the legislation in the past decade concerns protecting the public from “dangerous dogs”. These dogs are typically large, strong, and capable of inflicting severe injury with a single bite. Many insurers will not cover them without additional protection. Because of the enormous media attention directed towards this problem many dog owners are unaware of the liability issues they might soon face with their smaller dogs – especially if they bite a child.

lineup Dachshunds are more than twice as likely as ANY OTHER BREED to bite a stranger. Most Dachshund bites will not require medical attention so Dachshunds have not been considered a major liability. But rapidly increasing costs of medical care, payouts per bite from Homeowners Insurance and the extra costs and concerns associated with bites to children, bites to the face and hands, and decreased public tolerance of any sort of biting mean Dachshund owners need to be especially careful about the serious implications of even “minor” bites -

especially if there is a documented history of a prior bite. The equation has become quite different. Let’s say the average cost of an Emergency Room visit for a minor injury dog bite is 500 dollars. If the decision is made not to go to the emergency room then that 500 dollars multiplied by ZERO equals ZERO. Insurance companies do not concern themselves with things that do not cost them. But the times they are a-changing… People are much more likely to visit urgent care or the

As a breed dachshunds are genetically endowed with behavioral breed traits that explain why they might be more willing to use biting as a strategy than other breeds. Dog bites do not have to be fatal to be expensive. It’s important for dachshund lovers to understand the important information so that they are able to avoid minor bites that can turn into a major hassle. I’m a devoted dachshund lover, but I’m also a Certified Canine Behavior Consultant and Certified Bite Prevention Educator – and it is distressing to me how illinformed we are about how much a dog bite can cost us. Sadly most of these bites are entirely preventable. Dachshunds are statistically much more likely than other breeds to bite people – especially strangers. In a study from the University of Pennsylvania of over 6000 dogs, Dachshunds were found to be more than three times more likely to bite people (both familiar and unfamiliar) than the so-called dangerous breeds (Dobermans, Rottweilers, German Shepherds, and Pit Bulls). If you take Chihuahuas out of the

ER for a dog bite and the cost per visit is going up rapidly. Bites to children and bites to the hands or face or much more expensive. Now with very little change in the behavior of the dogs, there is an enormous increase in cost. Someone will have to pay. As a breed dachshunds are genetically endowed with behavioral breed traits that explain why they might be more willing to use biting as a strategy than other breeds. They have high prey drive, they are fearless and tenacious – natural protectors of people, property and anything they see as their possessions. Like many hounds they do not like being touched while sleeping or eating. Dachshunds may not have WORDS but they are exceptionally effective communicators. They use Body Language, Barking (vocalization) and Biting to get their point across. I have taken many courses and even worked in a zoo (where bite prevention is of primary importance) but the most enduring lessons I learned at the hands of (the mouth of) a grumpy dachshund our family inherited after my uncle died. “Doxie” never bit without reason or without warning but consequences of ignoring his strong body language and facial expressions were swift and painful. Training is a two way street and when it comes to dachshunds they are much more inclined to give orders then follow them. Boundaries work much better than battles and consistency is key to avoiding triggering an bite when there are other better options for your dog to manage the situation. It’s up to us to help our dogs understand and respect that. 1. Bite Prevention starts with puppies. Establish boundaries and bite inhibition – no teeth on people’s skin or clothing EVER. 2. Fearful or Anxious Dachshunds are much more likely to bite – choose a reputable breeder and socialize your puppy appropriately. A dachshund that learns biting is an effective strategy to make things that scare them “go away” will often continue to bite. Control the situation so your dog doesn’t have to. 3. Learn to read and respect dog body language – bites rarely come out of nowhere. If your dachshund bites any person contact a canine

behaviorist. One of the upsides of the lockdowns is a wider array of online options for canine interventions. A good place to start is CCPDT (Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers) https://www.ccpdt.org/dogowners/ certified-dog-trainer-directory/ 4. Dachshunds use aggression or biting as a behavioral strategy – and if it works then it is likely to be repeated. We need to be clear and consistent that biting is NOT the best strategy. We need to help the dogs “choose better”. 5. Punishment can backfire and cause an increase in aggressive behaviors. It does not teach a dog what they should do, it can increase fearfulness/anxiety, and especially

with a dachshund it might set up a battleground situation. Focus on what your want the dog to DO and reward that appropriately. 6. A dachshund disturbed while sleeping, eating or “in pain” might bite with little warning. Dachshunds are extremely possessive and inclined to resource guard. Many will not give up possessions without a fight unless they are trained that they will get something in return. 7. Dachshunds have a high prey /kill drive Human infants might trigger this INSTINCTIVE reaction to disasterous

Training is a two way street and when it comes to dachshunds – they are much more inclined to give orders then follow them. Boundaries work much better than battles. consequences - even a miniature dachshund is capable of severe damage and even death. If you wouldn’t leave a baby bunny in physical proximity to your Dachshund don’t trust them with a human baby either. 8. Young children look and act different than older children or adults. Dogs can misinterpret their behavior as threatening. Toddlers and young children often lurch around – approaching at a fast pace, smile showing teeth, engage in rough play and are much more likely than an adult to pull a dogs tail or ears. A Dachshund is likely to give a child that is “not following the rules” a lesson they will not forget. Use crates, barriers and baby gates to control the environment and do not allow “rough play” or overexcitement. 9. If your dog already has a bite history consider a muzzle. Muzzles have been stigmatized but that is changing. Veterinarians and groomers will use them readily, There is a high likelihood of future legislation requiring muzzles in certain areas and circumstances. Do yourself and your dog a favor and muzzle train them under low-stress/ high reinforcement training so they willingly accept wearing one should the need arise. 10. Make sure you have adequate homeowners insurance. In conclusion: It’s important to remember that biting is a behavioral strategy. Dachshunds are smart and persistent. Behaviors can be changed. Make sure you understand that as well as your dachshund does! Just because a dachshund may be more inclined to bite than other breeds does not mean they are more resistant to behavior modification. Finally remember that infants and young children can trigger instinctive or reflex biting that is not subject to behavior modification. It’s best to avoid putting either children or dogs into situations that can cause injury to a child or costly consequences to the dachshunds owner.!

John Jeanneney

A Visionary Leader Driven by His Passion By Jolanta Jeanneney

O

n July 5, 2021 my heart was broken when John Jeanneney, my husband of 26 years passed. He was 86. It was not unexpected; his death followed a long decline. His world was gradually shrinking due to his advanced age. I can still recall his last field trial that he attended, his last attempt of tracking wounded deer, and his last training line. I even have a picture when he held a puppy for the last time. There were so many “lasts”, and with many of them we were not aware of their finality. With some we knew. As a spouse and a solo caregiver, even though I

26

Dachshund Club of America Summer 2022

knew what was coming, I was not prepared for the aftermath. So many emotions, so many tears and so much sadness. John has left an amazing legacy behind, which involves establishing the standard dachshund as a true working dog in North America. Very few people know how his love for dachshunds started. It all goes back to 1960s. In his private autobiography written for his family John said: “As a graduate student at Columbia University I applied for a Fulbright Grant, which would subsidize a year of research abroad. Amazingly, I was accepted to do work in the archives of the France National Forestry School (Ecole Nationale Forestière) at Nancy in eastern France. At the forestry school I had all the privileges of an exchange student. The Forestry School had hunting privileges in a nearby National Forest. I enjoyed being a beater driving out deer and wild boar to the guns of my fellow students. It was on these hunts that I first saw the use of tracking dogs. The French were just beginning to use tracking dogs to find wounded big game. At the time the Germans were much more advanced in this art. A German student friend invited me to spend a vacation break in Germany, and I learned more about this use of leashed tracking dogs. One of the breeds used was the small hunting Teckel, a European alternative to the longer, heavier, more extreme American/English Dachshund.

I had to have one of these Teckels. Mary Lou (John’s first wife) and I would be living in a 9th floor city apartment when we returned to New York New York. A twenty pound Teckel was the one hunting dog that would fit into this environment as I finished my Ph.D. dissertation. I bought my first Teckel, Carla vom Rode in 1966, and she came back to the States with us. When I could get away on weekends to my parents’ country places upstate, Carla hunted rabbits, pheasants, and raccoons at night. She was the versatile dog that the German breed standard called for. I did not track wounded deer with Carla because this was strictly forbidden in the northern United States.” With his Ph.D. completed John started to teach history at Hofstra University on Long Island, NY. He moved to Wantagh, where he lived for five years. He wrote: “The five years in Wantagh were not all bad. There was undeveloped State Park Land, and it was there that I took my Teckel, Carla, to run rabbits. Dachshund field trials began to be offered in New Jersey. Carla rapidly became an AKC Field Champion. In 1982 work was started on a greatly expanded version of the original “Dachshund Field Trial Rules”. Gordon Heldebrant, President of the North California Dachshund Club, took the initiative in getting the project moving. I


worked closely with Gordon from the East where the majority of dachshund field trialers were located at the time. Our more precise rules adapted from the AKC Brace Trial rules for beagles were accepted by the AKC and The Dachshund Club of America. They are essentially the official dachshund field trial rules in use in the USA today.” John has always been an avid hunter, and he wanted to move into a more rural setting. “It was in the 1970s, while living at Clinton Corners, that my fascination with tracking dogs for finding wounded deer burst forth. I was hunting on an estate in southern Dutchess County, New York, when I took, what I thought was a careful shot at a big doe. A twig, which I could not see at 50 yards, deflected the 12 gauge shotgun slug so it did not hit the deer where I had aimed. There was no blood trail after the beginning, and though I searched all day, I never could find the deer. Two weeks later, some hunters mentioned that they had

found a big dead doe in a swale a half mile from where I had shot. This was very upsetting, even more so because I had learned about leashed tracking dogs in Germany. That doe could have been readily found with a trained tracking dog, but this was highly illegal, not only in New York State, but throughout the northern part of the USA.

I thought a lot about the incident and a year later had the opportunity to try an experiment. A Department of Environmental Conservation employee, who had law enforcement credentials, asked me to find a gut shot deer for him. His credentials made a tracking dog legal in his case. I took Clary von Moosbach, my tracking wirehaired dachshund at that time, to the one visible spot of blood, and she started out on a short, six foot leash. After about a quarter mile I happened to notice a smear of blood on a sapling. Clary continued to track, no checks or hesitations, and in another quarter mile there lay the dead deer. Finding deer was easy, or so it seemed at the time. Some of the next steps toward the legalization of leashed tracking dogs were a lot more difficult than finding my first wounded deer. It began pleasantly, with another trip to France where I met Hubert Stoquert, who was a regional wildlife manager in eastern France. Stoquert gave me the same introduction to tracking wounded deer that we have given so many times since. He worked a young wirehaired dachshund on a training bloodline, showing me how to train a dog. Then we went back to his house, looked at dogs, saw slides and talked long into the evening. He generously shared his time and knowledge even though his wife was going into the hospital for surgery the next morning. Stoquert was in the final stages of setting up a tracking dog network in eastern France. When I got home I had a clear idea of what I wanted

to do. For many reasons the French and German blood tracking procedures couldn’t be directly imitated in the United States, but the general philosophy, if not the details, of clean, responsible hunting and good sportsmanship were the same. The details of convincing New York’s Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) to permit a research project are too lengthy and complex to describe here. The positive recommendations by Bill Wadsworth, patron of bowhunting, certainly played an important role in the granting of that research permit in 1976. Clary did outstanding work, and local, public acceptance of the “wild, radical idea” of leashed tracking dogs was favorable. Cautiously, the DEC added more handlers to my permit and expanded the area within New York State where the experimental use of leashed tracking dogs was permitted. In 1978 the individuals on the tracking permit formed the promotional and educational association, Deer Search Inc., which was eventually to become a state-wide organization, divided into chapters. Deer Search’s system of tracking dog testing

John Jeanneney continued from page 27... was similar to the German prototype.” The Deer Search concept spread through national publications, and finally legalization of leashed tracking dogs in New York took place in 1986, largely through John’s efforts. John has always considered this legalization as one of the most important accomplishments of his life. John and I have met for the first time in the early 1990s. At the time I worked as a canola breeder and research station manager for Pioneer Hi-Bred in Edmonton, Alberta. I was married to my first husband Chris, and I was just starting as a breeder of wirehaired dachshunds. John was based in Clinton Corners, NY, but he taught history at Hofstra University on Long Island. He was married too. Of course we met because of our love for working dachshunds, and at the time we both had French imports. I imported from France FC Fausto de la Grande Futaie, he had FC Sheriff du Bellerstein aka Max. Back then people used to write letters, and we exchanged a lot of them, mainly about dachshunds and their pedigrees. I still have the letters – one of mine was eight pages long. At the time breeders associated with Deer Search

had several litters of dachshunds out of imported stock that showed a genetic defect, which later was diagnosed as osteogenesis imperfecta. John appreciated my help with trying to solve the issue of this mysterious disease. After having divorced our spouses, we were married on December 29, 1995. I quit my job and moved to Clinton Corners. And as they say… the rest is history. John bred his first litter in 1968, and he followed the German system of naming puppies according to alphabet. He bred under “von Moosbach” kennel name, which in German means “Mossy Brook”. His last “von Moosbach” litter was an “R” litter. When we combined our breeding programs we started to use the name “von Moosbach-Zuzelek”, and our first litter bred together, the “S” litter was born in February 1994. I don’t know how many Field Champions we have bred because it was never a priority for us, especially for John. Above all he valued usefulness of deer tracking dachshunds and thought that they have to prove themselves in

28

Dachshund Club of America Summer 2022

the field, on a real job. In 1999 we moved to a rural Berne in Albany County. Our 34 acre farm property is ideal for breeding and training tracking/hunting wirehaired dachshunds. Once John retired in 2000 he finally could focus exclusively on his passion full time – tracking wounded deer for hunters, promoting the idea on a national scale through writing and workshops, and breeding Teckels according to the German standard for tracking/hunting purposes.

John and I co-founded the North American Teckel Club (NATC) in 2000 and the United Blood Trackers in 2005. John spent 41 years tracking wounded deer and bear for hunters. In most cases when he did not recover the deer, he was able to establish that this animal was not mortally wounded and would survive. In the 2000s, the publication and strong sales of John’s self-published books, Tracking Dogs for Finding Wounded Deer and Dead On! played a large role in the expansion of the use of tracking dogs across the United States. As of 2022 it is legal to use tracking dogs in recovery of wounded big game in 44 states. His adaptation and development of the European tradition of finding wounded game with dogs was the accomplishment John was most proud of over the course of his “long and very good life”, as he described it. Last spring, while John’s 86th Birthday was approaching I asked our Facebook friends to send him a birthday card for the occasion. More than 100 cards came. These are some quotes from them: “I want to thank you in so many ways… You have touched so many lives… including mine with kindness and help. You are truly a legend when it comes to tracking dogs and have helped so many hunters and others across this country to do exactly what you have done for so many years. You started something that continues to grow to this day”. “Your passion for tracking and the breed has really rubbed off on me and I am very grateful”, “The mark you have on all of us will be one that will never be topped”, “Thanks for all your contributions and sacrifices to deer hunters, trackers

and dog owners all over the globe”, “Thank you for not only sharing your skills but also building a community and friendships that will last a lifetime”. There has been an incredible outpouring of love for him on social media following the announcement of his death. A friend said “John was a man with a passion. He lived his passion, and shared his passion, and ignited the passion in others”. And another quote: “The positive domino effect continues as more areas legislate wounded game tracking. He has impacted countless dogs, handlers, States, Provinces, and communities. He has directly or indirectly helped thousands of big game animals be found for hunters. And, he has inspired the tracking organizations that lead all over North America.” In 2017 United Blood Trackers hosted their annual event in Berne, NY. During the banquet John gave a short speech and said: “The relationship between a tracker and their dog is special, it is not one of command and obey. The dog is neither tool nor toy, you are partners giving each other advice. Each brings something to the work that the other doesn’t have and cannot do alone.” It sums up well John’s stand on partnership of a handler and his tracking dog, based on their relationship. His outstanding contributions to the sport of hunting and conservation led to John’s 1994 induction into the Sports Museum of Dutchess County and his 2012 induction into the New York State Outdoorsmen Hall of Fame. He is sorely missed by so many.!

talented dogs and her wonderful training. Evan, featured on the cover, is sure to follow in her illustrious dam’s footsteps. Make sure you read John Jeanneney’s poignant story, written by his wife, Jolanta. He certainly made an impact in the dog world by showing the innate tracking abilities of our breed. As Jolanta said, he will be missed by so many. Thank you again to all the contributors to the magazine, we couldn’t have a quality publication without you. I finally had to update all my software right before this issue. It took this old lady a little bit longer to figure out some of the changes in my tried and true applications - but plenty of the newer features are pretty amazing. Sadly, so many of our older members, those that have given so much time and effort to our breed, are crossing the bridge. We will miss all of them. Their amazing legacy of breeding, showing and judging in the dachshund world will always be remembered. Have a great summer, and check out the inside back cover for the initial information on the 2023 Nationals.

Are you ready to RACH and roll? Rally has undergone a facelift and it’s just not the program that it was before. If your past experiences with Rally events have been boring for you and your dog, not fun and just not worth the time, then look again and read up on the new Rally exercises and titles! I have personally competed with my dachshunds in Rally events since its inception. After each of my dogs earned the RAE, I strayed away from the program and worked almost exclusively in obedience. I felt that Rally was simply not challenging enough, so it lost its luster. However, I recently became reacquainted with the program and I have now come away with a new impression.

R E ADY TO

RACH MASTERING RALLY AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL By Karen R Scheiner

Rally was originally introduced by the AKC in 2005. At that time, there were three (3) levels, Novice, Advanced and Excellent, leading to the highest title, the RAE. From my viewpoint, it became mundane, and viewed with not much excitement, as the sits, downs and walk-arounds were doldrums. Apparently that was the opinion of many exhibitors, as well. Therefore, the AKC took a second look at the program, putting a lot of time and thought in invigorating its Rally program. In November, 2017, the RACH was introduced. Along with the RACH title, also came the new Master class signs1. To attain a RACH, the dog must maneuver through courses of about 20 signs that are fairly challenging and with increased difficulty at the Excellent and Master Levels. In the Master classes, you can still talk to your dog, but you cannot clap or pat your leg. You also cannot redo any sign that may have been incorrectly performed (IP) by your dog; you will just suffer a 10 point deduction which takes you out of earning Master points, as you need at least a score of 91 to earn points.

Classes Advanced B Excellent B Master Class

Score 100 99 98 97 95-96 91-94

Points 10 9 8 7 6 5

The RACH (pronounced “rock”) has become the “brass ring” for those trainers who want to have a meaningful goal at the end of the rally journey. This is the Rally Championship, with the title preceding the dog’s name, as with MACH (agility), OTCH (obedience) and CH (conformation). In order to attain a RACH, the dog must earn 20 tripleQ’s plus 300 points. A triple Q is a qualifying score, earned in Rally Advanced B, Excellent B, and Master, all at the same trial. The

32

Dachshund Club of America Summer 2022

requirement for 300 points would, in and of itself, not be so difficult, except that 150 of those points must come from Master classes. Aaah, the rub! Here’s the breakdown to earn RACH points:

Points can be earned in any of the three classes; there is no more or less weight given to one class or the other. So if you get 100 in Advanced B, you will get 10 points, which is the same as getting 100 in Excellent B or in Master. This information is from the AKC Rally Regulations (orange cover) booklet, amended to February 9, 2021. The AKC enhanced the Rally program in February, 2019 to make it somewhat easier (and less expensive) to earn a RACH. The changes included: RACH points can be earned from the Advanced B class, as well as Excellent B and Master classes. The point schedule was amended to award more points on a given score. Points are now calculated once the dogs earns RE title (instead of requiring the RAE first). The number of Master points required for a RACH was reduced to 150. It is pretty much agreed among Rally exhibitors that it is not too difficult to acquire the 300 points need; the difficulty is in earning half of them out of the Master class. On a practical note, most exhibitors, after earning the 20 triple Q’s and 150 points from the Advanced and Excellent classes, just enter their dog in Master, to save money and acquire the balance of those needed Master points. Some of the signs in the Excellent and Master signs can be tricky. So even if you


you have a very well-trained dog, you should read the regulations booklet and practice the signs. As you go through the course with your dog, he is not permitted to do any sign over in Master, but in the other classes, if you think it was incorrectly performed, then definitely do it over. A “do-over” will cost you just 3 points, so you can still earn RACH points. But one incorrectly performed (IP) sign will cost you 10 points, and then you get no points toward the RACH. It becomes a fairly expensive venture, particularly if you lose points for IPs.

Some of the more challenging signs for dachshunds to practice: #205. Back up 3 Steps. Fortunately, you don’t lose too many points when the dog is out of heel position (like in obedience). Just get the dog going backwards. Try training against a wall on the dog’s left, so he can’t get too far afield! Keep the dog in heel position and carefully walk back three steps. #206. Down While Heeling. The dog must lie down and stay; the handler, without pausing, continues about 6 feet to the Call sign, turns and faces the dog. Without moving his/her feet, the handler may command or signal the do to finish (either left or right.) Essentially, keep on walking when you give the “down” command. #210. Send to Jump. This one is a little tricky because you need to stay at least 3 feet from the jump laterally. At the sign, the dog must leave the handler to jump. The dog must clear the jump on the first attempt, in the proper direction, without stopping. The handler cannot pass the jump until the dog has returned to heel position. Read this one carefully! #216. HALT – Dog Circles Right – Sit. From a

sit position, the dog circles around the handler to the right and then sits. The handler’s feet do not move. #319. Side by Side 360° Right Circle While heeling, both the dog and handler stop forward motion and make a circle going to the right. The dog has to spin inwardly, toward the handler. Often, when the handler is circling right, the dog may get out of place losing their focus on heel position. #320. Side by Side 360° Left Circle- While heeling, both the dog and handler stop forward motion and make a circle going to the left. This sign is a little easier than the preceding right circle sign. Since the dog is already on your left, he just spins away from you. These are just a few examples of the more challenging signs. You can find the Rally Regulations booklet on the AKC website and download / view on your computer at your leisure. The signs are also available on the AKC site to be printed. At all times, whenever you are training a skill to your dog, make it fun. Take breaks, throw food to be chased, or see if they can catch in their mouth. Some dogs love to spin, so practice that as if you were doing a left spin or right spin sign. Rally was originally meant to be a bridge between Obedience and Agility, but it has come into its own dimension. A RACH has become viewed as significant achievement for many competitors with its own Championship title and even a National AKC competition.

The Intermediate level was introduced later, for those dogs not ready to perform off-lead. The Intermediate level sequentially follows Novice, but it is an optional titling class. If your dog can compete off-lead, then after Novice title, you can enter Advanced classes.

THE RESPONSIBILITY of the E X P E R I E N C E D

M

any of the most successful breeders started out with a dog that was mainly bought as a pet. For a variety of reasons, they dipped a toe in the water at dog shows. Their experiences during those early days were crucial and persuaded them that this is a hobby they could get involved with and enjoy— or decide it’s not for them. A key element to your decision making are the people you meet in your first training classes, or exhibitions, but the most experienced exhibitors rarely realize how they can influence others. Newcomers, who are potential exhibitors and breeders of the future, should be welcomed with open arms and encouraged, and the basic principles of exhibition and evaluation should be explained in a simple way. Your first dog may be of indifferent quality, but sometimes it can be a "diamond in the rough" that just needs skillful handling and presentation to earn something. Breeders of the newcomer’s own breed have a responsibility to explain, tactfully and carefully, their dog’s virtues – and they all have some virtues – in the context of the Breed Standard while diplomatically explaining their de patience. It's important that newcomers don't see their "geese as swans", but they shouldn't be given false hope either. Enthusiastic and intelligent newcomers will listen to the most experienced and decide how they want to progress. They can choose to struggle with their original companion and try to get better through parenting (if they’ve been lucky enough to find a worthy mentor) or decide it’s best to retire that dog into the home and seek a more realistic base with potential. It’s essential that your first encounter with “canine people” doesn’t leave you with the impression of an elitist antisocial group of people who have no time for rookies. They need to feel welcome and encouraged. We were all rookies at some point, but some seem to forget it and, due to lack of consideration, their good behavior may be fundamental to losing to the sporting breeders of the future that we so need. Many of the most successful breeders began with a dog that was bought primarily as a pet. For a variety of reasons they dipped a toe into the water of dog showing. Their experiences during those early days were crucial and either persuaded them that this is a hobby with which they could become involved and enjoy, or they decide it’s not for them.

Pivotal to their decision are the people they encounter at their first training classes, dog matches or shows but seldom do the more experienced exhibitors realize how they can influence others. Newcomers - who are potentially exhibitors and breeders of the future - should be welcomed with open arms and encouraged, having the basic principles of showing and judging explained to them simply. Their first dog may be of indifferent quality but sometimes can be a “diamond in the rough” that just needs skilful handling and presentation to do some useful winning. Breeders of the newcomer’s own breed have a responsibility to explain, with tact and care, their dog’s virtues (and they all have some virtues) in the context of the Breed Standard whilst diplomatically explaining its shortcomings. It is important that newcomers do not see their geese as swans but similarly they should not be given false hope.

Newcomers who are enthusiastic and intelligent will listen to the more experienced and decide how they wish to progress. They may choose to struggle with their original companion and try to upgrade through breeding (if they have been lucky enough to find a worthy mentor) or decide it’s best to retire that dog to the fireside and look for a more realistic foundation with potential. It is essential that their first meeting with “dog people” does not leave them with the impression of an elitist antisocial group of people who have no time for novices. They need to feel welcome and encouraged. We were all novices once, but some seem to forget that and, through a lack of consideration, their behavior may well be instrumental in losing to the sport breeders of the future that we so desperately need.

Novice

PROOFING by Brenda Reimer This is part 1 of a two-part series covering proofing. In this article, proofing is defined and examples for the obedience exercises are explained. Part 2 of the series covers one form of proofing: Judge pressure. A familiar refrain at obedience trials is that our dogs are perfect in practice, in matches, but not when it counts. We scratch our heads and wonder what is going on in their little heads. After all, heeling is heeling no matter where we do it, right? Alas, although we believe heeling is heeling no matter where we are at, for our dogs, they need to be introduced to different settings so that they understand that when we say a command, they are ready to do it. This is the goal of new situations and the goal of proofing. Let’s start with new situations. I have been taught by trainers to take my dog to different locations so that the dog comes out of the van ready to work. When I first heard about this, I thought, how ridiculous. After all, usually I am sitting at the show site for an hour or more before showing. And then came the pandemic and we were showing out of the van. And I had a dog who could come out of the van crate with attention and ready to work. Where do I practice this? Think about a large parking lot (movie theater, strip mall, etc.). Park the van. Take dog out of the crate, play, and make it the greatest thing ever. Then put back in the van. Move to a different part of the parking lot and do it again. I’ve even done this on residential streets. The goal is to have a dog ready to work. Once we do this, we can take the show inside. When practicing this, 3 or 4 locations for about 1-2 minutes is all you need to do. In my neighborhood, JoAnn Fabrics is dog friendly (it’s on their website, but always check), Lowes, PetsMart, and some others. Some Home Depot stores are dog friendly (not by me). Let’s think about Lowes. The dog comes out of the van crate ready to play and do lessons. You might heel to the door, and then choose a location of the store that is appropriate for your dog. There are quiet aisles and louder aisles. For example, I don’t want to train when there are a lot of dogs in a store. I take Zelda to the back of the store around 7 a.m. The store is not busy, but there is the

38

Dachshund Club of America Summer 2022

sound of boxes being unloaded, etc. And there are lots of employees to use as distractions. Know your dog when you take the dog on the road. Is your dog at the stage of being exposed to new environments or is the dog ready for proofing? Let’s review! Before we proof our dogs, we want to make sure that the dog understands the exercise. For me, proofing is not a “GOTCHA” moment. Proofing is a way for me to understand what level my dog is at with the exercise or skill. Once I know what the dog can’t do, then I can work on that situation. Therefore, proofing is creating a situation where you, as the trainer, increase the difficulty of a task. What is the purpose? One purpose is to recreate mistakes the dog makes in the ring so that you can train through that mistake. The other purpose is to make the ring easier than in training so that the dog can be successful. Proofing from the time you take your dog out of the crate to the ring entrance is important for all events. Let’s look at how we can proof for the obedience exercises.

Before we proof our dogs, we want to make sure that the dog understands the exercise. For me, proofing is not a “GOTCHA” moment. All levels (and sports): • Entering the ring with attention • Practice walking through doorways. • Practice walking through ring gates. Make the entrance narrower. • Practice walking through ring gates with toys on the ground (set the toys before the entrance). • Grab friends! Practice with someone outside the ring, then someone at the gate, and last, someone inside. Build up to 2 people inside (think judge and the steward to takes the leash). • Add noises (This is important for every exercise.)

Heel/Figure 8 & Heel Free • Heel in a narrow area (a confined space). • Practice halts closer and closer to the ring gates. • When practicing the figure 8, do an about turn or a 270 turn as you are going around a cone. Stand for Exam • Have your dog stand with a cone behind her. Work up to 3 cones (sides and back) from a few feet away to less than a foot from the dog. • Have a friend conduct the “exam” while wearing a long coat, or other baggy type clothes. Recall • Leave your dog and dance, walk funny, skip, etc. Will your dog stay? • Leave your dog and before calling the dog, take a deep breath. Shrug your shoulders. • Call nonsense words instead of your come/front word. Novice Sit Stay Get Your Leash (SSGYL) and Stays • Can your dog do the stay for a little over a minute? For 30 seconds? Vary the time. • There are times a young dog will get up when the leash is in a hand. Proof walking back to the dog (SSGYL) with the leash in one hand, the leash dangling, around your neck, etc. Give the dog a lot of different looks in practice. • Proof walking around the dog. Walk a tight circle, a wider circle, etc. Skipping in a circle around a small dog can be hard and I do not advise that movement.

Open examples Drop on Recall • Give your down signal/verbal at different points. Not all judges down a dog halfway. • If you do not give your down signal/verbal, does the dog slowdown in anticipation? • Have toys and food on the ground that the dog has to pass or drop near. Be fair to the dog. Start this with the toys or food at a reasonable distance. Then bring the food/toys closer to the recall/drop path. DB Retrieves • Practice off center throws. It is the dog’s responsibility to find the db. BJ • Similar to the novice recall, you should be able to dance your way to the handler location, take a deep breath, and then ask the dog to jump. Can your dog hold the sit? Stand Stay Get Your Leash (SSGYL) • The same proofs as the novice SSGYL.

Utility Signal exercise • Ask a friend to wave arms, etc. behind the dog for signals. Is the dog looking at you and waiting?


• Most judges have a right or left turn, stand your dog, leave your dog pattern. Practice this a few times. Then turn and keep heeling. Did the dog anticipate the stand? Articles • Articles are so much fun! And for our scent hounds, it’s the exercise that calls their name. Have fun proofing articles. Put them close to each other, and then spread them out much further than you will ever see at a show. Put the article pile in one room of your house and send the dog from the hallway. Be creative and fun! Gloves • Put 6-10 gloves in a large circle and pivot/send to each. Can your dog ignore the other gloves? • Put gloves 1 and 3 in their usual location and move glove 2 closer. Will your dog ignore #2 and get the correct glove? • Put gloves 1 and 3 closer and glove 2 in its usual location. Can the dog get #2? Moving Stand • Will your dog keep moving if “stand your dog” is said and you keep moving? • Will your dog hold the stand if you dance away?

Directed Jumping Can your dog do an extra-long go out? Stop your dog multiple times on the way to the go out location. Go – sit- go-sit-gosit. Many dogs find this to be great fun. And it shows you that the dog understands the go out command you use and listens when you say sit. Remember, this is a control exercise. Wait before sending to jump. Is the dog waiting for the command? I hope these proofing suggestions help your training. You can set up proofs by yourself, and with others. Please remember the key: Proofing helps us know what the dog has learned, and it will help you solve the problems you are having in the ring. Avoid using proofing to set up your dog just to confuse it. As you proof your dog, you will soon see that the dog can do the exercises at shows, and will pay attention to you, Last, I would like to mention that there are proofing books available for purchase. Two books that I would recommend are: “The Art of Proofing” by Adele Yunck (Northfielddogtraining.com) “Success is in the Proofing” by Debby Quigley (debbyquigley.com) Please note that the books are cheaper directly from them than on other sites.!

DUAL CHAMPION SHARPREE’S LIGHTNING (BUG) IN A BOTTLE! CD BN RN TDU AX MXJ JE CGC Evan is one of five pups born in June 2015 to Daddy Fee and Mama Gee! She has quite the legacy behind her and she’s proving that she can manage it just fine! At the recent DCA Nationals at Purina Farms, Evan earned her Rally Novice title. This became her 7th title in seven different sports. A new SEVEN WAY dachshund! One week later, Evan went on to earn her Obedience Companion Dog (CD). Yes yes yes. Evan is a girl. She’s named after a character from The Princess and Frog - Evangeline, the Evening Star. It is said that when lightning bugs die, they become stars to light the sky. As a breeder, I hoped to somehow find a dog that reminded me of my foundation love, Maggie. Maggie is the dog tattooed on my left calf. I swear to you, Evan has more “Maggie” in her than any dog in 3 generations. She stares into my eyes like Maggie. It’s not a needy stare, but more of looking into my soul and trying to read my mind. She was my pick of the litter, not only for her structure, but seriously, for the way she stared at me and then reacted when I turned to meet her glance. There’s just an unexplainable connection. She barks in a tone same as Maggie and she responds to my happy praise, much like Maggie. There are times when the resemblance is uncanny. What a special joy. While she has some Maggie traits, she is most certainly her own unique self. She is quiet, but trouble. She loves fetch and obsessively hunts lizards. She’ll pass on toys for the opportunity to tear apart a “doo-dadoo” (the inside tube of toilet paper roll). She enjoys leaping in the air after bubbles or biting at the water squirting from the hose. For reasons I still can’t explain, she got the nickname “Evanuuuuuuu” when I was trying to teach her a recall. I found that if I sang and held the “nuuuuuu”, she found that funny and would come racing. From her first recalls at field trials, to present day backyard fun, Evanuuuuu is still her recall song! Her friends know her as “Nuuuuuuu”. Evan’s title journey began pretty much from puppyhood. At seven weeks old, I was teaching her a proper sit, fold down, and a kick back stand. I also incorporated games and tricks and just fun learning how to learn! Evan was a riot to work with. She responded well to treats, but even more, she absolutely loved to hear me laugh and praise her. 2017 seemed to be Evan’s most spectacular year. She earned her Junior Earthdog title in Bedias, Texas in February and earned two Senior legs the following November. In early December of 2017, she completed her Field Championship in Troy, Mo. A few weeks later, she earned her Tracking Dog (Urban) title in St. Rose, Louisiana. All who know me are aware that Conformation makes me a nervous wreck. Nonetheless, I did it with Gee! and mentors helped me develop as an owner-handler, owner-groomer too! Evan finished her Breed Championship and became a Dually in September of 2018 in Franklin, Tennesee. She enjoyed the Conformation ring, ya know, cuz there’s food!

n a v E


Evan earned her first agility title in July of 2019. Her agility quest has been a struggle. Nothing brings out Evan’s personality more than an agility course. She’s unbridled energy. Seriously, untamed zoomies is her norm. It’s been entertaining, exhilarating, and frustrating. Her love for tunnels seemed to supersede all things but for lizards. She would literally cross a ring to take a tunnel NOT even in her path. Her journey through agility was just started only to be interrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Our training field closed and trials were cancelled. We’re still working on recovering and reforming our skills and harnessing her energy. Look out when we get it all connected! In 2022 Evan made her debut into the world of obedience. She completed her Beginners Novice title in February 2022, then her Rally Novice title in May 2022. Most recently, she completed her Companion Dog title Memorial Day weekend in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Evan is a riot to work with, live with, and train. She’s so connected to me and enjoys other dogs in my household. She has many friends, both dog and human. Her one and only challenge seems to be young girls. She is convinced they are an existential threat to all things living and she wants none of them within reach of petting. I suppose therapy dog is not gonna be a thing for her. Evan thanks all her friends for their support and encouragement. She especially thanks the Dachshund Club of America for their recognition of performance dogs and is honored to be on the cover of this DCA Newsletter edition. Sharon McDonald

I am not a dog. I am a DACHSHUND. I’m half wolverine, half barb wire and all attitude. I am either your best friend or your worst enemy, depending on YOUR attitude. I can fight the wildest raccoon or play with the gentlest child. I can hunt all day in snow storms, pouring rain or blistering heat and then ask you to throw the ball when we get done. I will argue with you at every turn. After all, I know what I'm doing and the best way to get it done. I am easy to feed. I will eat your steak or the dead, rotten rabbit I found in the field. You will never be without a navigator in the truck. 50

I will protect you from burglars, raccoons, badgers and that strange pesky shadow in the corner of the house. I will hog the bed and the couch. I will steal your sandwich, your chair, your boot, and your heart. You will never have to go to the bathroom alone ever again. I will lick your face right after I eat the head off the rabbit I just killed in the yard. I will sleep next to you when you are sick and heal you with my love. I am DACHSHUND. Respect me. Love me.
