• Tetanus in dogs is very uncommon (even more uncommon in cats) because dogs and cats have a natural resistance to the effects of tetanospasmin; It takes nearly 200 times the amount of toxin for a dog to be affected. • We fantasized about DNA tests that might one day allow us to actually “see” a dog’s recessive genes. And when that first test happened, and then another, and another, breeders set out to do just that.

DCA’s Latest Multi-Titled Dachshund by Shawn Nies

My first purposefully-bred dachshund came from Carolyn Lewis and her “Short Shadows.” Four years ago, I made a trip to a small town just outside Berlin, Germany for a puppy “aus der Wutzelgrube” bred by Anika Ringwelski. I was extremely fortunate with both of these dogs and I have learned many skills from training with them. Gypsy became my first 7-way dachshund and now Indy has followed in her footsteps and taken us a step further. Indy is titled in Conformation, Field Trials, Earthdog, Obedience, Rally Obedience, Agility, Tracking, FAST CAT, Trick Dog and he has his CGC.

The DCA VC Program was last fully reviewed in 2007! Undeniably, we were in dire need of update. AKC made significant changes to many core sports already included in DCA’s VC program to include obedience, rally, tracking, agility and earth dog. Our first focus was to update those particular sports within our existing DCA program. MANY changes were made. The changes are noted in RED on page 21. Changes are effective for the 2020 calendar year. We will incorporate AKCs Scent Work program to our VC “menu”. Dachshunds are scent hounds!

The Making of a Dock Diving Dog

by Sandy Alexander After my recent relocation to Johnson City, Tennessee I discovered a cornucopia of dog sports in which to participate! I became a regular at a local training center where I started training my boy “Flash” in agility, scent work, fast CAT, and obedience. Late in the fall of 2019, my trainer invited me to join her at a local dock diving facility that had newly opened to see if we could get our dogs to swim. That was my introduction to “Never A Dull Moment Farm” in Jonesborough, TN. Once he conquered the floation jacket he was unstoppable! He swam and swam, tail wagging like a flagging rudder and, it was even difficult to get him out of the pool!

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

Please send ideas, suggestions and articles to the Dachshund Club of America Newsletter Editor. This is a story about Thorn, a patient of Drs. Portner and Berkowitz of the Emergency and Critical Care team along with Dr. Tracy, our Neurologist and Dr. Lewis, our veterinary Dentist. Submitted by Trudy Kawami

About Thorn: Thorn presented to Dr. Portner of the Emergency and Critical Care team on referral from another emergency and specialty hospital for treatment of suspected Tetanus infection. At the time of presentation, he was a 20 week old, intact male, dachshund puppy who had sustained a fall from the couch 5 days prior. The day after the fall he was a little lethargic and then progressively started to become more and more stiff throughout the weekend. Thorn was seen at another emergency and referral hospital, but was referred to us at NorthStar VETS for continued treatment and care under the expertise of our Emergency and Critical Care doctors. Tetanus: Tetanus occurs when spores from the bacterium Clostridium tetani. Spores are very hardy and can be found commonly in the environment, especially in soil and can survive

for years under certain conditions. When spores are introduced into a wound that provides an anaerobic environment, allowing the spores to become vegetative, and produce tetanospasmin, the toxin responsible for the severe neurologic clinical signs that we see. Clinical signs usually develop within 5 to 10 days from the inoculating wound, but up to 18 days has been reported. Tetanus in dogs is very uncommon (even more uncommon in cats) because dogs and cats have a natural resistance to the effects of tetanospasmin; localized clinical signs are more common than generalized tetanus, likely owing to this inherent resistance. It takes nearly 200 times the amount of toxin for a dog to be affected than a human and 3,600 times the amount of toxin for a cat. Thorn presented with very classic signs of generalized tetanus including severe trismus, and we could only open his mouth a couple of millimeters, his ears


there. Dr. Portner rechecked Thorn the next day and he was even more relaxed at home, only becoming stiff when stimulated, but he was able to sleep comfortably and even started being able to urinate outside when he was carried out and held up in the grass. Thorn was rechecked again 1 week later with Dr. Tracy and he was continuing to show considerable improvement. With some support, he was able to start taking some steps and was eating well at home. Dr. Berkowitz contacted Thorn’s family one month after he first showed signs of problems and they reported: “He is amazingly fine! Completely normal, thanks to you and your staff.” We are so happy with Thorn’s progress and he will go on to live a normal, happy life with a terrific family. !

were erect and pinned to the top of the head (some patients will also show a ridgeline in the skin longitudinally between the ears), stiffness leading to a sawhorse type stance and his tail held straight out, he had a lateral strabismus (eyes looking outward instead of looking straight ahead) and constricted pupils, and his third eyelids were elevated because the muscle behind the eye was retracting the globe. Thorn’s progress: Thorn was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit and watched very closely while he was supported through his illness. Treatment with antibiotics, most specifically metronidazole, was started to begin treatment for C. tetani infection. We monitored his blood gases and electrolytes and blood sugar along with his vital signs very closely, ready to provide ventilator support if he was unable to maintain his breathing well enough on his own. After a few days of treatment, including the administration of Tetanus Antitoxin, we were able to open his mouth a few more millimeters and identified the source of his infection: a fractured deciduous tooth. The tooth was extracted by Dr. Lewis of our Dentistry and Oral Surgery team and a gram stain of the bacteria from the tooth showed Emergency and Critical Care service at NorthStar VETS Robbinsville, NJ, Maple Shade, NJ, Brick, NJ Joshua Portner, DVM, DACVECC – Medical Director, Maple Shade Dr. Portner grew up in Southern New Hampshire. He obtained his bachelor’s degree in Biology/All-College Honors from Canisius College in Buffalo, New York, and his veterinary degree from Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine in Massachusetts in 2004. After graduation from Tufts University, Dr. Portner completed a rotating internship in small animal medicine and surgery at Alameda East Veterinary Hospital in Denver, Colorado, and went on to complete his residency in Emergency and Critical Care at Ocean State Veterinary Specialists in Rhode Island in July of 2008. In 2009, Dr. Portner passed the specialist certification examination and became board certified in Emergency and

“tennis racket” shaped bacteria most consistent with Clostridium bacteria, confirming our diagnosis. We were prepared to begin nutritional support for Thorn with either a nasogastric feeding tube or intravenous nutrition, but thankfully, Thorn began opening his mouth enough to begin eating on his own if fed in very small amounts. It was a painstaking process to feed him such small amounts at a time, but even though he could barely move from stiffness, he would begin tremoring and wagging his tail, very excited about being able to eat. Thorn spent 9 days in the hospital with his family coming to visit him every day. Once he was able to eat enough on his own and maintain his own body without intravenous support, his family was able to take him home and continue his supportive care and recovery

Even after all that treatment as a pup, and dog is now a FCH with at least one Absolute under is belt AND has sired a litter.

Critical Care Medicine. Dr. Portner has special interests in mechanical ventilation, nutrition for critical patients, and transfusion medicine. Along with membership in the Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society (VECCS), American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), and the New Jersey Veterinary Medical Association (NJVMA), he has also been a member of the International Veterinary Academy of Pain Management (IVAPM) and the International Sled Dog Veterinary Medical Association (ISDVMA), as well as several state associations. During his residency, he was a member of the Rhode Island Disaster Response Team, which is an organization responsible for providing medical care to sick and injured animals during a state of emergency. Steven Berkowitz, DVM Dr. Steven Berkowitz attended St. Georges University and did his clinical year at the University of Illinois. Berkowitz joined

NorthStar VETS after serving as the Chief of Emergency and Critical Care at another specialty hospital. Prior to that, he completed a three-year residency in Emergency and Critical Care medicine at the Oradell Animal Hospital in Paramus, NJ. His residency was completed at one of only a few recognized veterinary trauma centers in the United States. Prior to his residency, he was a staff Emergency Veterinarian at Animal Specialty Center in Yonkers, NY as well as serving as an emergency doctor at Animal Emergency and Referral Associates in Fairfield, NJ for 3 years. Dr. Berkowitz can be seen on seasons 5 and 6 of “Animal Precinct” on Animal Planet, which was filmed during his internship at The Bergh Memorial Animal Hospital of the ASPCA in New York City. Dr. Berkowitz has special interest in the management of metabolic and endocrine derangements, trauma, as well as management of the septic patient.

From the AKC CHF Website, October, 2020 Originally published in the Canine Chronicle

“My dog took the DNA test and was cleared of every genetic disorder,” began the Facebook post. “But now my vet says he has cardiomyopathy. Should I find a different vet? Or could the lab have made a mistake? And if so, shouldn’t I be able to get my money back?” By Caroline Coile And herein lies one problem with genetic testing: dog owners, and even dog breeders, too often don’t know what it means. And it’s not really their fault. Thirty years ago all we had to know was the difference between genotype and phenotype, and dominant and recessive. We thought that if we could identify every carrier through test breedings, and remove them from the gene pool, we could purge our dogs of hereditary illness. We fantasized about DNA tests that might one day allow us to actually “see” a dog’s recessive genes. And when that first test happened, and then another, and another, breeders set out to do just that. They removed every carrier they could identify, and in so doing created a genetic bottleneck that reduce their breed’s genetic diversity and allowed other heretofore unknown or insignificant diseases to come to the forefront.

8

Dachshund Club of America Winter 2020

With more knowledge of our dog’s genes came the need for more knowledge on how to use this knowledge. Now we have hundreds of DNA tests, and predictably, even more misunderstanding when it comes to their use. Which is why the hot-off-thepress AKC Canine Health Foundation’s white paper, Review of the State of Genetic Testing–a Living Resource, is something everyone who has ever even uttered the phrase “DNA test” should read. And since it’s free, and online at www.akcchf.org/educationalresources/library/articles/CANINE_ GENETIC_TESTING_07-282020_FINAL_withlinks. A pdf, you can read it while you’re waiting for groups, or waiting for your next progesterone test results. And it’s written so that no matter what your level of expertise, you can start at the basics and work up, or skip around and just check out the newer parts. As for our friend asking the questions, she could have read several sections concerning genetic tests and breed specificity. Among other things, she would have found out while several companies offer multiplex tests that will test for the presence of alleles associated with as many as somewhere around 175 disorders in certain breeds, they have limitations that far too many dog owners don’t understand: • Far more than 175 (or 200, or 300) genetic diseases exist in dogs. Being clear of 175 of them doesn’t mean your dog is“cleared of every genetic disorder.” It’s just cleared of every disorder on that test panel.

• Many disorders are probably polygenic in nature (that basic was explained earlier in the paper, but basically it means a trait depends on the interaction of alleles at several loci), and some have variable penetrance or expressivity (again explained elsewhere, but basically variable penetrance means that the trait doesn’t always manifest, and variable expressivity means the trait may manifest to different degrees), and either may depend on alleles at other loci or environmental factors. Despite a vast amount of research on hip dysplasia, for example, we still have no DNA test for it because it’s not a simple case of Mendelian inheritance. • An allele that causes a disease in one breed may not cause it in another. For example, the presence of an allele at a different locus may also be needed for the disease to manifest. That’s the case for one of the current witch hunts, the “allele for degenerative myelopathy” (DM). In several breeds, dogs with two mutant copies in the SOD1 gene are at increased risk of DM. Yet in other breeds these mutant copies have no effect on DM susceptibility, probably because another as yet unidentified mutant allele must also be present. The homozygous SOD1 mutation is necessary, but not sufficient, for DM, yet people are having their dogs tested for the SOD1 mutation in breeds in which DM never occurs, and probably can’t occur. Then they’re either removing dogs from the breeding population or bragging that they are clear, continued page 14...

DCA 2020 Merchandise Party 10/17/20 By Ashley Dumas

What the Dallas-Fort Worth Dachshund Club wanted for 2020 and what we actually got were two very different things, but the support of the dachshund community has been great throughout the process of planning, rescheduling, re-planning and finally cancelling DCA 2020. So great was that support, that our shirts, commemorative pins and ornaments (which are now sought after collectors’ items!), were ordered by the dozens by those who wanted to remember the ‘DCA that didn’t happen’. As Karen Mann, a long-time DFWDC member said, “75 years from now we’ll be a trivia question”. On a sunny day in mid-October, seven members of our club gathered (masked and as socially distant as possible) to handle the bittersweet process of mailing out DCA show merchandise. Lexa Richmond offered her driveway and pre-printed packing slips and address labels. Ken Hagmueller obtained USPS supplies in advance, and the whole group set up an assembly line of all our DCA merchandise. We had snacks on hand (a requirement for one of our club functions) and a puppy for entertainment and socialization. Over 100 mailer envelopes and small boxes were packed up and labeled for shipment in less than 2 hours! From the response of the recipients, we maintained a good success rate on our order fulfillment accuracy, and people love their items! We would much rather have had a show in April (or October) so that we could celebrate our wonderful breed with all of those friends that we sometimes only see once a year, but happily, people will have something nice to remember a year that has been anything but. DFWDC can see the light at the end of a very long tunnel as far a closing out the DCA 2020 events, and we wish the very best to the host clubs in 2021.

39 & Me continued from page 8 based on a test that is meaningless for their breed. More than 120 breeds carry this alleged DM allele; maybe 30-some actually get DM. • A disease that looks phenotypically similar may be caused by different mutations. For example, progressive retinal atrophy may appear clinically identical in two different breeds, yet not be genetically related. Testing clear of the gene that causes progressive retinal atrophy (PRA) in Irish Setters doesn’t mean your Irish Red and White Setter won’t get a form of PRA known only in that breed. • Not all labs, and not all tests, are created equal. Some are based on only a handful of dogs and await further refinement as more dogs are tested. Some may be rushed to market simply because the company is profitdriven and can’t afford to wait and get it right. Another person wrote in: “My dog tested positive for DM! Now what?” Well…it depends. • First, consider that the presence of the “DM gene” only matters if your breed is one that gets DM. The same is true for any deleterious gene your dog tests positive for. • Removing a dog from the gene pool because he has a deleterious allele is like, well, removing you from the gene pool because you have one. Because it’s estimated that every single person is carrying at least one or two lethal alleles. • Don’t assume because a DNA test says your dog is at risk for a condition that he really is. “A dog that shows the presence of a disease mutation does not necessarily mean the dog will show clinical signs during its life; owners should recognize that the genetic test results are not clinical diagnoses,” states the white paper. • Being “at risk” isn’t the same as “gonna get.” Understanding the differences between a DNA gene test, which identifies the actual mutation responsible for a disorder, and a DNA linkage test, which identifies a gene that is so close to the actual gene on the chromosome that it acts as a marker for the actual gene, is important here. One has a certainty of being there, whereas the other only a probability, albeit high. And again, understanding that expressivity, penetrance and environmental factors play a role in whether a gene actually manifests as the disease and impacts a dog’s quality of life is important. • Knowing a dog has a risk for a certain disease can be helpful in diagnosing that disease early, or in considering it as a cause for a current condition. However, it can also be detrimental to a diagnosis if the owner or veterinarian assumes it’s the cause to the exclusion of other possibilities. “If a dog’s test results indicate it has a predisposition for a particular disease, and the clinical signs exhibited are consistent with that disease but

14

Dachshund Club of America Winter 2020

those signs actually reflect a different disease in that dog, jumping to the wrong diagnosis may hinder appropriate treatment of the true underlying disease.” For example, a dog that loses control of its rear legs and carries two copies of the “DM gene” may just be assumed to have DM, when the real cause might have been disk disease or something else treatable. And another: “My dog tested positive for PRA. Of course I’m having him neutered, and I’m having every relative I can find tested and, if positive, neutered as well.” Whoa! Not every breed, and not every disorder, can be treated the same. • “If the mutant allele is not abundant in the population, and the disorder is harmful, the goal should be to avoid producing affected offspring or carriers and spreading the disease allele in the population.” So yes, if yours is one of the rare dogs in your breed to test positive for PRA (and you know for sure that the DNA test predicts clinical PRA in your breed) you very well should consider neutering affected dogs and possibly carriers. Your goal is to avoid dispersing the allele further into the population. You could, however, breed a carrier to a clear and breed on only from clears. In this way you “nip it in the bud” without giving up the other genes your line possesses. The authors further explain that in some cases, especially in

Don’t assume because a DNA test says your dog is at risk for a condition that he really is. “A dog that shows the presence of a disease mutation does not necessarily mean the dog will show clinical signs during its life; owners should recognize that the genetic test results are not clinical diagnoses,” states the white paper.

breeds with small populations and a limited gene pool, breeding affecteds may be advisable as long as they are bred to clears. This would produce 100% carriers that could then be used as just described for the next generation. • If the disorder is widespread in a breed, then eliminating all dogs with the mutant allele might decimate the genetic diversity of that breed, resulting in proliferation of other possibly even worse disorders. “Wholesale elimination of dogs from the breeding pool based upon a single test result can irreparably harm the entire breed by decreasing the gene pool or increasing the prevalence of other disease alleles that lack testing schemes.”

“My dog tested positive at Lab A but negative at Lab B… What’s going on?” Do a Google search for “Dog DNA” and you won’t find much actual information about the topic. Instead you’ll get page after page of advertisements from company after company pushing genetic tests for dogs. The problem is there’s no oversight. Anyone can start a dog DNA testing lab and start collecting samples and sending out results. Each lab has its own proprietary formulas for determining ancestry, for example, just as human ancestry labs do. And as with human labs, analyses of dog ancestry have often yielded similar but somewhat different ancestry estimates. It’s possible some differences exist with disease testing as well. The Harmonization of Genetic Testing for Dogs (www.dogwellnet.com/ctp/) offers a compilation of labs that have voluntarily submitted to meet certain standards. We’ve come a very long way in a very short time when it comes to DNA testing, and we’re slated to progress at an even more rapid rate in years to come. The paper concludes: “Genetic testing in dogs will likely follow the steps of human genetic testing protocols. Over the past decade, single-gene tests have given room to multi-gene or panel testing. In humans, panel testing involves the testing of multiple genes associated with a common genetic disorder, such as breast cancer or diabetes. Similarly, panel testing in dogs will likely evolve to the testing of genes behind a specific disorder or breed specific genetic test panels that will assess only breed-relevant disorders. As complex disorders are studied in dogs, and the genetic susceptibility markers are uncovered, genetic panel testing will also include determination of polygenic risk scores for specific conditions, meaning the amount of risk conferred by a group of genetic susceptibility variants underlying specific complex disorders, similar to what is done in humans. Application of statistical network analyses to quantify risk have already been proposed for use in genetic counseling for dogs. Many canine studies have now shown that certain MHC/DLA genes confer risk to autoimmune disease, such as DMS, type 1 diabetes, symmetrical lupoid onychodystrophy, lymphocytic thyroiditis (hypothyroidism) and Addison’s disease, among others. Further studies into the MHC/DLA class II haplotypes may clarify their effect on health and disease such that they can be incorporated into some of the multi-gene panels and in selective breeding. Broad-range SNP panels may still be used in the future, but with a different purpose. Specific multiplex panels may use targeted SNPs distributed through the entire genome with a focus on providing genomic estimated breeding values to assess the likelihood of a dog passing on particular complex traits to its puppies. However, this will require a great many dogs with comprehensive phenotyping across varied environments and across breeds to obtain the accuracy in prediction necessary before such tests can be deployed.”!


TESTING FOR HEARTWORM RESISTANCE 10/01/2020, from the AKC CHF site Author: Sharon M. Albright, DVM, CCRT

Canine heartworm disease has been diagnosed in all 48 states of the contiguous U.S. It is caused by infestation with the parasite Dirofilaria immitis and spread through the bite of a mosquito. Once injected into the dog host, heartworm larvae mature in the blood stream and eventually establish residence in the heart and large blood vessels as 6 to 12-inch adult worms. These worms and the associated inflammation prevent normal function of the cardiovascular system and result in clinical signs such as cough, fatigue, decreased appetite, and reluctance to exercise. In advanced cases, heartworms can cause heart failure and cardiovascular collapse. The cardiovascular damage caused by heartworms is irreversible. Therefore, management of this disease has relied heavily on prevention with the use of antiparasitic drugs known as macrocyclic lactones. These drugs prevent the larval heartworms from maturing into adult worms. Low doses given at regular intervals have been very safe and effective at preventing heartworm disease in dogs for decades. Recently there have been increasing clinical reports and laboratory confirmation that some heartworms are resistant to these preventive medications – a definite threat to canine health. There is no reliable test for heartworm resistance to currently used preventives. Without such a test, we don’t know how many heartworms are resistant to macrocyclic lactones. How common is this problem? Veterinarians also need a test to help treat heartworm disease in their individual canine patients. Are the heartworms affecting this particular dog resistant to common preventive medications? With funding from AKC Canine Health Foundation (CHF) grant 02458-A: A Laboratory Test

A Dachshund by any other name… By Trudy Kawami, from the AKC Gazette It is pretty well known by Dachshund enthusiasts that the breed’s name means literally Badger Dog in German. Badger is the quarry that it was most notably used for in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The badger is a tough & cunning underground foe and any dog brave enough to face and bolt a badge was highly respected The breed’s name reflects the respect the hunter had for the fierce badger, though the Dachshund was used on other game, for trailing wounded deer and even for flushing and retrieving game birds. In the US the badger is not the primary focus of hunting Dachshunds but the name continues as the breed’s formal moniker. Some Americans found “Dachshund” hard to wrap their tongue around and a variety of vernacular or nicknames arose like “Dash-hound” which does at least evoke the active dog. The commonly used “Dachsie” or “Doxie” are clearly diminutive version of the longer name. But other names like “Hot Dog”, Wiener Dog” “Frankfurter Dog” and “Sausage Dog” play not only on the breed’s

for Detecting Drug Resistance in Canine Heartworm Disease, investigators at Iowa State University evaluated various tests that could help distinguish susceptible and resistant heartworms and recently published their results. Investigators ran tests of cell membrane permeability, metabolic activity, and enzyme activity which could easily be run on a blood sample collected in the veterinary clinic. They tested four different heartworm populations – two known to be resistant and two known to be susceptible to macrocyclic lactones. Their goal was to determine if any of these tests could accurately identify resistant heartworms. While each of the heartworm populations studied showed some unique characteristics in their test results, none of the tests clearly predicted susceptible or resistant behavior. While no obvious test for heartworm resistance resulted from this research, valuable information was obtained. Future studies on heartworm resistance must include multiple populations of the parasite. Because the heartworm populations examined in this study varied in their biochemical processes, we cannot assume that the mechanisms of resistance are the same in all heartworms. Investigators did find variations in the locations and types of metabolic enzymes present in heartworms. A more detailed look at their different functions might reveal clues for testing and management of resistance. The AKC Canine Health Foundation and its donors remain committed to addressing the ongoing threat of heartworm disease and heartworm resistance to currently used preventatives. Veterinarians and dog owners need new tools and strategies to combat this common and deadly parasite. In a novel approach to managing canine heartworm disease, CHF-funded investigators at Texas A&M University are studying mosquitoes that spread this parasite (CHF grant 02821-A: Investigating the Role of Aedes aegypti in Dog Heartworm Transmission in Communities along the U.S.Mexico Border). Results could identify if and how mosquito control can impact the prevalence of canine heartworm disease. Dog owners should follow their veterinarian’s recommendations for regular heartworm testing and prevention.

long body but also refer to the German sausages of the same name. They link the breed at least subliminally with its German origins. The sausage parallel carries over to other languages as well. In Spanish-speaking North America the breed is called “Salchicha” or “little sausage”. In modern Germany the Dachshund is sometimes called “Dachshund,” but more usually it is called a teckel or dackel. The formal name of the German national breed club is Deutsche

Teckel Klub. Both “teckel” and “dackel” are diminutives for badger, that is they mean “little badger [dog]”. The difference between the “t” and “d” spellings are just regional variations in pronunciation that go back a long time. Linguistically they are the same word. So it is not surprising that in neighboring France the breed is also called “Teckel”. As the Dachshund moved farther from its region of origin the name “teckel” went through some changes. In Russia

the breed is called “taksa” and in Sweden the Dachshund is a “tax”. You can still hear the Dachs (badger) in both these names. Poland has two separate names for the breed. One is, of course, “taks”, but the other is quite different – “jamnik” or burrower, and “jamniczka”, little burrower. And it is this action, the working to earth, that is so distinctively Dachshund. Denmark, too, focuses the dogs’ actions as well, calling it “gravhund“, literally digging or burrowing dog. In all these countries the Dachshund has long been used to work quarry to earth, and is valued as both a working dog and a loving companion in the home. In southern Europe the Dachshund was also known and used for hunting but the breed’s name lost the “dachs” sound. In Spain the breed is called “perro tejonero” which is a literal translation of “badger dog.” In Italy the Dachshund is “il Bassotto”, the low one, a nice literal description but one that leaves out the hunting aspect. Just to confuse us when we think we understand the changes in the breed’s name as it moves away from its place of origin, the Norwegians called a Dachshund – a Dachshund! Anyway you say it, Dachshund, teckel or bassotto, it’s one heck of a good dog!! Dachshund Club of America Winter 2020

T

he dachshund is an incredibly versatile breed of dog. It comes in many forms, but my heart is set on the standard wire dachshund. My first purposefully-bred dachshund came from Carolyn Lewis and her “Short Shadows.” Four years ago, I made a trip to a small town just outside Berlin, Germany for a puppy “aus der Wutzelgrube” bred by Anika Ringwelski. I was extremely fortunate with both of these dogs and I have learned many skills from training with them. Gypsy became my first 7-way dachshund and now Indy has followed in her footsteps and taken us a step further. Indy is titled in Conformation, Field Trials, Earthdog, Obedience, Rally Obedience, Agility, Tracking, FAST CAT, Trick Dog and he has his CGC. With Indy, I have had the opportunity to expand my knowledge and skills in tracking which is his absolute favorite activity, unless maybe it is playing ball. He has earned tracking titles in the AKC, Deutsche Teckel Klub (DTK) and the United Blood Trackers (UBT). We track about once every week, sometimes more and sometimes less. He is not a huge fan of tracking over asphalt so we continue to train for the VST title and hope that one day we will get there. But the journey is the important part, not the destination. When Indy first came to live with me, I decided to take a page from the “Sharon MacDonald book of puppy training.” Indy’s breeder had done some fine foundation work with him and I wanted Indy to bond first with me and then with the rest of my pack to help us during our training times. What a great page to borrow! He has a wonderful work ethic for anything I ask him to do. He looks to me for entertainment before asking the girls to play. Of course, it helps that *I* can throw the ball for him. The hardest part in our training process is for me to figure out how to communicate with him what my expectations are. For that, I have had wonderful support from both Sharon MacDonald and Brenda Reimer, but also from some non-dachshund people. Indy and I took a rally class with Nancy Smith Curtis when he was a puppy and he loves her so much that she has been able to help us train through Novice Agility titles in both Standard and Jumpers courses, but also through Open Obedience in addition to that first Rally goal. He is now working on learning the skills to compete at the Utility level of

18

Dachshund Club of America Winter 2020

Obedience which I never would have considered trying without the help of his (my) support group. Indy has also earned the DTK companion dog titles of BHP-1 and BHP-3. The BHP-1 is somewhat similar to the CDX in AKC obedience. With the move to a new home and the pandemic, we are missing our weekly training time in obedience and agility, but hope to get better guidance than I can give him by myself at home when we find a new trainer. We currently train in our living room or the driveway or the garage, depending on the weather. I have found the dachshund community to be extremely supportive of someone trying to learn new obedience skills and give advice on pitfalls to avoid or best ways to train a specific skill. What a fabulous group of people are in this breed! A year ago, we tried FAST CAT and while he has earned his BCAT title, it was clearly not something he wanted to do often so we will not continue to pursue that particular sport. If you have a highly visual dog, they will love this and I strongly support getting out there and doing what you and your dog love doing together! COVID caused a halt in shows and trials so we tried training some new tricks during the lockdown and Indy earned his Advanced Trick Dog by learning to pick up a dollar bill and pay for his treat or carrying a basket of things to me. Trick training is super fun and I definitely recommend it to everyone. It helps to forge a bond of fun while working on skills that directly reflect obedience skills. Indy is becoming much more consistent in his field work and at Harvest Moon Classic 2020, he earned 3 Second Place, 2 First Place and an Absolute ribbon out of his 7 entries. We are still hoping to improve the obedience skills as they apply to the field. Tracking has certainly helped Indy to understand what to do in the field, but he recalls when he is finished working and not necessarily when I call him. We continue to work on that particular skill. At four years old, Indy is still a young dog. We have many journeys ahead of us. I look forward to every day of that journey and what it might bring. I encourage everyone with a dachshund to try the different venues where dachshunds are eligible to compete. Have fun with them. It enriches the lives of both human and dachshund.!

VERSATILITY CERTIFICATE PROGRAM UPDATE By Sharon McDonald Sharon McDonald (Chair) and members Jamie Sexton and Sandi Myers have compiled this update. Together we represent abundant knowledge and experience in the multiple sports comprising this prestigious DCA program. Denny Van Hook provided process guidance and program input and was consulted in this review. Additional thanks to Vicki Spencer who has worked with me since I was appointed as the VC Program Chair. The DCA VC Program was last fully reviewed in 2007! Undeniably, we were in dire need of update. AKC made significant changes to many core sports already included in DCA’s VC program to include obedience, rally, tracking, agility and earth dog. Our first focus was to update those particular sports within our existing DCA program. MANY changes were

20

Dachshund Club of America Winter 2020

made. Rather than detail here in verbiage, the changes are noted in RED in the facing chart. Changes are effective for the 2020 calendar year. AKC added the new challenging program of Scent Work. We thoughtfully considered this program and concluded that we will incorporate AKCs Scent Work program to our VC “menu”. Dachshunds are scent hounds. Scent Work requires training and increases in complexity as competitors rise through the titling matrix. It is fitting to recognize the hard work and dedication of these teams in our program. This has been an enormous and time consuming undertaking. I would like to thank the committee members for their work and thank the DCA Board for being highly receptive and supportive in tackling this program update. Additionally, I want to thank those in the fancy for your feedback since I’ve been the Chair of this committee. MOSTLY – I want to thank and acknowledge all of you who train and compete in the multiple sports in which dachshunds are eligible. You are true ambassadors of our breed. The dachshund is undeniably one of the most versatile breeds. The dachshund trainer is one of unquestionable drive and determination. Together, dachshund owner/handler/trainer teams are a force to reckon with!!!


VERSATILITY PROGRAM UPDATE as of January 2020

* Changes/additions noted in RED * Nothing removed from existing program * AKC Scent Work added – requires training and increases in complexity as titles progress. General Requirements 1. A total of 18 VC points required 2. VC points must be obtained from Bench Group and at least three (3) of the other six (6) groups. 3. Points may not be accumulated in any one group (i.e. a UD entitles a dog to points; his CDX and CD cannot be added). 4. A Triple Champion (Bench CH plus Field FC plus either Obedience . Champion or Tracking Champion or Agility Champion MACH/PACH) qualifies a dog for the Versatility Certificate. NOTE: Except for the AWTA Certificate of Gameness earned prior to October 1995, only American Kennel Club events/titles can earn VC points.

I

n past years I would attend the AKC National Shows in Orlando, Florida with regularity. It is an exciting series of shows with numerous vendors and large entries including the top dogs in the nation. Usually, I would wander over to the area where the National Dock Diving competition was being held (mostly because it was near the food court!) I was amazed at the dogs who were frantically barking for their turn to dive and the enthusiasm of their handlers but, somehow, I never saw myself as a participant in that sport. After all, my dachshunds would avoid, at all

costs, walking through a puddle on a rainy day, much less plunge from a diving dock that is two feet above the water! Fast forward to my relocation to Johnson City, Tennessee where I discovered a cornucopia of dog sports in which to participate! I became a regular at a local training center where I started training my boy “Flash” in agility, scent work, fast cat, and obedience. Late in the fall of 2019, my trainer invited me to join her at a local dock diving facility that had newly opened to see if we could get our dogs to swim. That was my

introduction to “Never A Dull Moment Farm” in Jonesborough, TN. The owner, Mary M. Sparks always has new dogs start their swimming lessons with a life jacket. I suited Flash up and walked down the ramp into the chilly water to try to entice him to join me with some treats. He did readily but it took some time to get his balance with the flotation of the jacket. Once he conquered that...he was unstoppable! He swam and swam, tail wagging like a flagging rudder and, it was even difficult to get him out of the pool! I was pretty excited but thought that was as far as we would go in that sport.

continued on next page...

THE MAKING OF A DACHS DOCK DIVING DOG continued from page 23 Winter came and the pool was closed. Once the pool warmed up in the spring, I was joined by a friend who had a Cocker Spaniel who also liked to swim but we decided that maybe we should attempt to try to get our dogs to dive. So, we met once a week and progressed to having our dogs run eagerly down a ramp that leads into the water and they would then launch themselves into the water off the ramp! So, how could we progress from this point to having them jump two feet off the water from the diving dock? I racked my brain and decided that we needed a tool of progression. I already owned a popular manufactured raised dog bed with a mesh top that was exactly the width of the ramp. I added legs to it with PVC pipe, longer on one end, so that the new “platform” was parallel with the water, We could then slowly raise the

24

Dachshund Club of America Winter 2020

vertical height off of the water by inching it up along the ramp as the dogs became confident with jumping off of it at lower levels! We added a layer of artificial turf on top to simulate the diving dock. We incrementally raised the platform by inches. Within two practice sessions, they were both diving 16 inches above water level! With that height achieved, we decided to move over to the actual diving dock and, with only slight hesitation, they both transitioned readily! There was no stopping either of them at that point and, we, as owners enthusiastically entered them in the next dock diving event which, incidentally, was two weeks later! We could not believe it! Our dogs had become fervent divers who totally embraced this new performance sport. In his first weekend of competition, Flash achieved his Dock Junior title and qualified for the Regional competition in North Carolina at the end of October 2020! At this time, he is ranked as one of the top 5 dachshunds in the sport!

I am still trying to figure out the best strategy to increase distance with Flash! He is not much of a retriever, but you are required to throw a toy with each dive. The toy does not have to be brought back, and, most times he doesn't, because he is spending his time doing a “victory lap”around the circumference of the pool much to the amusement of the gallery! He has 4 minutes to complete his dives before our time runs out. I can usually tempt him out of the pool with false promises of “cookies”, which I do give him in practice but which are not allowed in competition. At this point, he greatest distance is only achieved by his motivation to fly off of the dock! Whenever a dog accomplishes a “personal best” during his distance dive, the handler jumps into the pool with the dog as a celebration! We have had a couple personal bests, but on his first, I was captured on camera...hugging and loving this boy who always gives me his best, no matter what we do....Love ya Flash Man!!!!

A motion was made and adopted to change the DCA 2020 dates to October 2 through October 8, 2020. There was a discussion concerning a motion made at the last meeting to highly recommend our local clubs make every attempt to pair a field trial judge with less than ten trials with a judge who has more than ten trials. The Board was polled to clarify the intent of this motion. A motion was made and adopted to accept the recommendation of the PEC committee which are as follows: Replace Chapter 5, Section 1, Paragraph 5 of the Dachshund field trial regulations which currently reads: “The two judges for every stake must have a combined history of judging at least 10 AKC licensed or member hound field trials.” with the following: “For all regular classes, a judge who has judged less than 10 AKC licensed or member Dachshund field trials must be paired with a judge who has judged 10 or more AKC licensed or member Dachshund field trials.”

New Business: Ratification of the motion to instruct Lynne Dahlén to combine the Fall and Winter Newsletters was adopted without objection. Ratification of the motion to renew DCA's membership in the AKC Canine Health Foundation for another year was adopted without objection.

the table. The visitor can then pull their favorite into the dog house and learn various aspects about the breed. Perhaps the most popular display is the 7foot-high video screen located in our Dogs on the Job corner where one can train a virtual Lab puppy named Molly. Through the use of motion capture technology, we filmed a real Lab who then responds to your verbal and hand commands on screen.

After spending 30 years in St. Louis, the AKC Museum of the Dog returned to New York and officially opened to the public on February 8, 2019. The museum is conveniently located in the heart of mid-town Manhattan just two blocks from Grand Central Terminal. Our first year was a great success with attendance exceeding that of the previous years in St. Louis by 6-fold and revenues by 13-fold. Our arrival also generated a great deal of media buzz. We conducted over 200 press interviews resulting in over 2100 articles and television appearances reaching nearly 40 million people. Though success is not necessarily measured by numbers.

Exhibitions Additionally, the year saw the museum present the exhibitions, Women and Dogs in Art in the Early 20th c., Photos: Please Do Not Bend: Highlights from the Catherine Johnson Collection and Mush: A Tribute to Sled Dogs from Arctic Exploration to the Iditarod. Currently, the exhibition we have on display is Presidential Dogs, which highlights the dogs and dog breeds that live in the White House.

Digital Displays The new museum features numerous state of the art digital and interactive displays, most noticeable, as you approach the building, is the façade projection featuring silhouettes of dogs walking across the front of the building. There is also Find Your Match which will take an image of you and through facial recognition scroll through all 195 AKC recognized breeds to find which breed you most resemble. We have found it to be scream among the millennial crew. Moving into the gallery there are two Meet the Breeds touch screen tables. Each features a cavalcade of all the AKC breeds scrolling across

Library and Activity Center

important breeders, owners, handlers and their dogs of the day. Each are identified and the cast reads like a who’s who of the early days of the sport. I humbly refer to it as the “Night Watch” of dogdom.

Conservation Through appeals to the AKC Parent Clubs and members we were able to launch the “Dog Save the Queen” campaign to restore our carousel Bullmastiff, “Queen” and “The Rake’s Progress” to conserve our George Earl painting of the Irish Water Spaniel “Rake.”

Store The recent lockdown has caused us to scramble to introduce an online store which we opened in April. The store features high-quality and exclusive items for dog lovers young and old. We have several Dachshund items for sale, such as a cuddly plush toy, a festive Holiday ornament, socks, and more. To see all our product, go to www.museumofthedogstore.org.

We are most proud of the success of our library and activity center. Here, visitors are able to peruse over 4000 volumes from the AKC main library and archive. The activity center hosts lectures, films, Meet the Breeds days as well as popular children’s programming such as “Paws to Read.”

Acquisitions The move from St. Louis to New York has proved to be fortuitous in the area of new acquisitions. In the first half of 2020 the museum has received a number of donations and made a significant purchase. In January, Robert Flanders donated Abraham Hondius’ Amsterdam Dog Market c. 1677 in honor of Walter Goodman. The impressive Old Master canvas displays over 50 dogs with several handlers and customers as well as an array of collars. In June, we gladly accepted the donation of The Haunt of the Woodcock: Sensation and Bang Bang by the American artist John Martin Tracy. It is certainly the artist’s masterpiece and quite possibly one of the most important American dog painting in existence. Painted c. 1880, it features two of the seminal Pointers from the Westminster Kennel in Long Island. Sensation went on to become the mascot of the WKC and is featured in their logo. Appropriately, it came from Sean McCarthy, former head of Westminster and a past museum board member. Finally, after negotiations with Sotheby’s and through the generous donations of museum board members, Gayle Bontecou and David Merriam, we were able to secure a massive painting by George Earl depicting an imagined field trial in Bala, North Wales around 1877. It is essentially a giant group portrait of all of the

Dachshund The AKC Museum of the Dog and the AKC has about 40 total artworks featuring Dachshunds in its collections. Several of these pieces were donated by the estate of Paul Tolliver, a longtime fancier of the breed. One painting of note is Two Dachshunds with Hare by Hermine Biedermann-Arendts. Created in 1880, this piece shows the result of a hunt, painted in a style that is straightforward and carefully observed. This piece shows a visual history of the Dachshund as a working dog. Other Dachshund artists in the collection include the Royal Doulton ceramic company, Enjar Vindeldt, Marguerite Fould-Stern, and Emmanuel Fremiet. Some small Dachshund sculptures will be featured in our next pop-up exhibition, In From the Cold: Viennese ColdPainted Bronzes, opening November 11, 2020.
