A MESSAGE FROM THE PUBLISHER DEAR FRIENDS,

T here is no doubt that everyone’s goals are a bit dif- ferent this year, but we hope you succeed and, most importantly, find comfort in your goals. Today, however, I would like you to find comfort within the pages of SHOWSIGHT . I am so proud of my team here at SHOWSIGHT for curat- ing such a memorable issue with care. Even though we never miss a deadline, every month we hope that we put out an amaz- ing issue for every dog show person and purebred dog lover. I am happy that we are ending such difficult last couple of years on a positive note by having a record-breaking number of shows and entries. Finally, we are all together again! And with no surprise, we are seeing more new faces around dog shows, and in large numbers, than we have in recent years. This deserves a big round of applause! Everyone who promotes our sport in the most beautiful way deserves to be applauded daily. Let’s continue being positive, supporting all of the organizations and individuals within our community who do this work for the future of our community. Personally, what keeps me smiling and wanting to improve daily is growing our sport and helping preservation breeders get the recognition and protection they deserve. It isn’t selling ads that makes me move. What makes me move is designing so many “masterpieces” for our clients. There is no better feeling to those of us here at SHOWSIGHT than when our clients say, “I love it!” and then lets us know, while smiling and laughing, how many amazing compliments they’ve received about their latest ad. At SHOWSIGHT , we believe that providing education to existing and new fanciers is pivotal to the future of the sport of dogs. For us, it isn’t enough just to provide dog show results. We want to provide camaraderie too. As much time as we all spend bragging about our successes, we should spend double- time sharing our knowledge through positive stories and giving support to all those around us. (I want to say especially to those who need it, but let’s be honest, we all need support!) Every per- son we interact with needs a positive interaction—even those who look like they are thriving. I have many amazing stories that I share when I’m speaking with people, but for some reason, I never publish them in the magazine. Today, I will share one story that we all were a part of. Some might see it as a lesson more than a story. My feature story this month is one that is very near and dear to all our hearts—DOG SHOWS! The cancelation of dog shows did not come as a surprise to anyone during 2020 and 2021, but it was difficult to hear the news all the same. Our soul seemed to shine a bit brighter as the roar to life and our community Welcome to The May Issue!

came together to support those in need. We are so thrilled that, despite the cancellations, we were able to find comfort by staying in touch with one another through phone calls, text messages, emails, and Zoom calls. Through it all, SHOWSIGHT was delivered every single month in print and through digital and social media to over 150,000 purebred dog lovers. Congratulations to all magazines and media chan- nels who decided to push through every obstacle that COVID brought by delivering positive content about purebred dogs to you. While we are all competitors, our goals remain the same and this is what’s best for our community. Friends, when dog shows were canceled, we were all in panic mode. Not a soul can tell me that we didn’t have some worries; maybe not the same worries, but we all managed to revolve around our community. Then, when a few clubs decided to have shows in 2020, entries at them were record-breaking, regard- less of the many rules and restrictions that were put in place. During that time, all we heard and read was how nice and respectful people are/were toward each other. The majority even went on to say that they had never seen more positivity at dog shows. All it took was COVID taking what we love so much away from us. We are so thrilled that despite everything that has happened, we have our dog shows back. Keep explor- ing, sharing, and smiling. And speaking of exploring, in each edition of SHOWSIGHT we will be bringing our readers important news and information from all over the country regarding the pressing issue of Canine Legis- lation. SHOWSIGHT has pledged to continue fight- ing for Preservation Purebred Dog Breeders to the fullest extent possible through our print publication and social media channels. We will continue to bring awareness to everyone within our community and to passionate dog owners outside of it who are concerned about a fair and equitable promotion of purebred dogs, purebred dog breeders, and the sport of purebred dogs. For Breaking News and the Latest Legislative Actions pending, please visit our website: https:// show- sightmagazine.com/category/canine-legislation/. In this issue, please visit page numbers 266, 268, and 269 to read important editorial about Canine Legislation. Peace and joy to you all, dear readers. Wishing you and your loved ones good health and happiness.

Until the June Issue of Showsight!

BASSET HOUND

A JUNIOR’S Secret Strength

BY GAIL MILLER BISHER

I t’s been a minute since I was a Junior Handler, but when asked about how that experience shaped my professional career, the memories came flooding back. Growing up outside of St. Louis, Missouri, my parents and I spent many hours in the car driving to dog shows across the coun- try. My mom was the breeder, dad the chauffer, and I quickly became the family handler, finishing my first champion when I was twelve. Competing in the Junior Showmanship and regular breed rings from elementary school through high school was its own form of education. Participating in the sport and competing as a Junior Handler teaches you how to care for dogs, work with dogs, and compete as a team with a dog. You also learn planning, preparation, dedication, responsibility, and sportsmanship. Almost every aspect of being a Junior Handler can be directly applied to skills needed in the pro- fessional world. Looking back, there are lessons that I walked away with that have given me support over many years and in a variety of undertakings. BANKING CONFIDENCE Handling as a Junior is unlike any other sport in that age is not a factor. Kids and adults compete and are evaluated on the same level. The winner is selected based on the quality of the individual’s dog. The fact that young people can be victorious over adults can help build a tremendous amount of confidence at a young age. You are equal in the ring and, if you have a quality dog and handle it properly, this empowerment can make all the difference to a kid. The confidence built in the ring as a young handler will stay with you for the rest of your life. As you face challenging or intimidating academic or professional tasks, you can recall memories of a difficult dog you handled, staying calm while in a final lineup, or handling a dog to Best of Breed over professional handlers. Those experiences will remind you that “you got this.” You have already learned how to handle pressure. An example of this is when I was completing my master’s degree in communications. When faced with my final oral exam- ination, I had to perform with a panel of professors seated in

PARTICIPATING IN THE SPORT AND COMPETING AS A JUNIOR HANDLER TEACHES YOU HOW TO CARE FOR DOGS, WORK WITH DOGS, AND COMPETE AS A TEAM WITH A DOG. YOU ALSO LEARN PLANNING, PREPARATION, DEDICATION, RESPONSIBILITY, AND SPORTSMANSHIP. ALMOST EVERY ASPECT OF BEING A JUNIOR HANDLER CAN BE DIRECTLY APPLIED TO SKILLS NEEDED IN THE PROFESSIONAL WORLD.

A JUNIOR’S SECRET STRENGTH

GROWING UP IN THE SPORT OF DOGS CAN BUILD A YOUNG PERSON’S CONFIDENCE, COMPOSURE, AND DETERMINATION TO SUCCEED IN ANY ENVIRONMENT. THERE IS A MATURITY LEVEL IN OUR YOUNG PEOPLE THAT ISN’T ALWAYS THE CASE IN OTHER YOUTH SPORTS.

for ways to improve processes, productivity, and efficiencies, and smart employers will value these skills. Growing up in the sport of dogs can build a young person’s confidence, composure, and determination to succeed in any envi- ronment. There is a maturity level in our young people that isn’t always the case in other youth sports. Now a parent myself, reflect- ing on all those hours traveling with my parents, who have passed, I understand what a gift it was to have had that time together. It was a gift for all of us to be together, sharing our victories and losses while supporting our breeds and discussing life’s mysteries over thousands of hours on the road. FLASH FORWARD After twelve years in broadcast production in advertising, I returned to the sport but in a professional capacity. In 2002, my career was so time-consuming that I couldn’t commit the time needed to special a dog, but I stayed involved as a dog club mem- ber. I was picking up the judge for our specialty show, Tom Davies, at the airport and, during our ride to the hotel, he informed me that AKC was building a PR team and had recently posted job opportunities online. Bingo! Joining AKC felt like I was coming home to my people, but it was clear that working for the sport in a professional capacity is very different from participating in the sport. As one of only a few PR/Communications professionals for the sport of dogs whose job it is to expand the audience, shift perceptions, educate and enter- tain, it is critical to understand how the outside world perceives purebred dogs and the sport. You have to be able to step outside the bubble and view the sport with objective eyes. I hope that fanciers can appreciate the AKC, WKC, and KCofP’s communi- cation efforts to keep the sport relatable and relevant in today’s dog-owning climate—it’s a heavy lift. Working year-round to craft messaging and content that shifts perceptions and educates is a critical service to the future of the sport. (And although AKC and WKC have large platforms on social media and television, every fancier is a spokesperson for the sport. Every touchpoint with the public matters and, as a community, we should be sharing unified talking points.) MAKE IT HAPPEN There is no doubt that competing in Junior Showmanship and in the regular classes as a young person was an invaluable expe- rience that helped me secure career positions in advertising, and with the AKC and my current job as Director of Communications at the Westminster Kennel Club. Juniors, know that your experi- ences in the ring today will translate and support you in all of your collegiate and professional endeavors down the road. And remember, you will always have a secret strength—you are a dog handler.

front of me, ready to answer any question about topics covered throughout the entire graduate program curriculum. I was hopeful that I had the knowledge, but I was not afraid of being scrutinized and in the spotlight as it was familiar to me. I thought to myself, “I piloted two dogs to National Specialty Best in Show wins before graduating high school—I can survive this panel,” and I did. It is a secret strength that Juniors can carry with them through adult-

hood—calm confidence in oneself. LEAN INTO THE UNIQUENESS

The second life skill happens more often outside of the ring. I remember being labeled “the dog girl” in school. Showing dogs is an uncommon sport for grade school-aged children. Although I was a cheerleader, I would always be on the fringe because instead of going to parties or sleepovers on weekends, I traveled for dog shows with my parents. Not fitting in can weigh on kids because they fear they are missing out, but I think most Juniors in the sport enjoy the dog show community and the dogs more. It’s important to note that this hobby may seem odd to others when in grade school but, once in the collegiate and professional worlds, your dog experience can be the one thing that makes you stand out. My “dog girl” label helped me land my first job. After graduat- ing with an undergraduate degree in Mass Communications, I was out pounding the pavement looking for a job as a video editor. I produced a promotional stud dog video of one of my Bearded Col- lies as a sample of my editing capabilities. It covered the dog’s posi- tive qualities, movement, lineage, and temperament, with music and graphics. This video helped me get an interview for a position as a Production Assistant at a global advertising agency. Now, I’m sure other candidates had similar video editing skills or better, but no one had a subject matter that unique! Interview day arrived and, of course, my Junior Handling expe- rience had taught me how to dress professionally (like a handler), be on time for the interview (like being ready for your ring time), and not be intimidated during the interview (stay composed). At the end of the job interview, all the interviewer wanted to talk about was his Miniature Schnauzers. The conversation had shift- ed, and I knew I was “in.” I was offered the job and worked for that

agency for seven years. USE YOUR VISION

To me, the most fulfilling part of being a handler at any age is to see the potential of a dog and then work to bring that vision to life. This task includes improving the dog’s coat, physical condi- tioning, training, and ring presence. I think it is an innate sense that many handlers have. They want to improve what they have to be more competitive, and that trait easily translates to the profes- sional world. It’s not enough to just do a job. You will always look

WAYNE BOYD BELOVED FRIEND SEPTEMBER 14, 1946 - MARCH 25, 2022

BY LINDA AYERS TURNER KNORR

F riends are the most wonderful part of living, and my family is truly blessed that Wayne Boyd was one of our most special ones! Known as a fierce competitor in the show ring, to us, Wayne was a man with a huge heart and a tremendous love for his family and friends. He knew how to express himself and show his love and concern for others. It was his natural way of life. Unforgettable for his tremendous contributions to the sport of purebred dogs, Wayne bred and exhibited multiple all-breed Best in Show winners. For many years, he represented the Bayou Kennel Club as their American Kennel Club Delegate. Along with his wife, Jean, he enjoyed judging both here and abroad. In a chance encounter in the hall of a hotel in Columbia, South Carolina, I first met “Wal- do,” aka Ch. Bandogs Crawdaddy Gumbo as he and Wayne were heading back from a walk. My father, the late all-breed judge Roy Ayers, had shared with me that this was one of his very favorite dogs of the time. When Boyd’s special Bullmastiff greeted me, I could see why. From Bullmastiffs to, later, Great Pyrenees, Wayne and Jean Boyd have been consistently breeding, winning, and sharing their knowledge as ambassadors of their breed. For example, their Rivergrove Great Pyrenees have garnered 13 Bests of Breed at their National Specialties.

LINES FROM LINDA: WAYNE BOYD

The sentiments shared by the following friends portray the kind of person Wayne Boyd was to them: “We are deeply saddened by the news that we lost yet another icon in our breed. Wayne Boyd was a highly respected breeder/owner/handler of the world-famous line of Rivergrove Pyrenees with his wife Jean Boyd. But he also influenced the Bullmastiff breed more than 35 years ago with two other high- ly successful dogs. Wayne piloted the top-winning Bullmastiff of all time, Ch. Bandog’s Crawdaddy Gumbo GROM, to No. 1 Working Dog and No. 2 All-Breed in the mid 1980s. Before that, he owned Ch. Huck’s Last Hurrah who became the first multiple Best in Show Bullmastiff. These two Bullmastiffs were proudly co-bred by Louise Sanders and myself. I will miss Wayne’s yearly holiday calls to say hello and reminisce those successful years watching these two Bullmastiffs in the ring. Wayne would always shed a tear when speaking, espe- cially of Waldo who lived to be 14. Now many will shed a tear when we remember those dog show days with Wayne. My sincere condolences to Jean and family and all his friends.” — Helene Nietsch

“Waldo” and Wayne

Lauren Hall reminisced about her days as a Junior Handler, when Wayne encouraged her: “I’ve been at a loss for most of the day after reading about the passing of someone who had an enormous impact on many of us in the dog community, and my breed especially… A man who largely influenced my love for the Great Pyrenees. I genuinely do not think I would be as involved as I am in this breed if it hadn’t been for Wayne and Jean Boyd. When I first met Wayne and Jean, I was barely tall enough to even see over a Great Pyr. My Dad and I were at the Syracuse Dog Show where we watched Wayne and ‘Trump,’ his special at the time, win the Breed and compete in the Group. Over the years, Wayne continuously encouraged and cheered me on in Juniors. Anytime he saw me with a dog besides one of my Great Pyrs, he would always say something along the lines of, ‘Where’s your Pyrenees!? You gotta show a Pyr in Juniors! Stick with the Pyrs!’ He would brag to anyone sitting with him, saying, ‘This young lady shows a Pyr in Juniors. She always does such a tremendous job.’ He always asked how my dad was doing, always asked how things in life were going, if I graduated school yet, if I got a job. His love for the sport, this breed, and his friends and family were very apparent. If he wasn’t in the ring, he could ALWAYS be found seated at one of the ring corners to watch the showing. His support was endless, no matter who you were, and he was always welcoming. I’ll forever be grateful for his kindness and encouragement.” — Lauren Hall

Angela Lloyd and Wayne, all smiles after winning another Group 1 at the Greenville Kennel Club.

One of Wayne’s very favorite people was his Professional Handler and family friend, Angela Lloyd. The following are remarks from Angela: “Wayne was larger than life in all aspects, his love for the dog show community was pure and strong, and his love for his Family and Friends was even greater. He was my biggest fan and biggest critic all rolled into one, and I am so grateful to have known him so many years of my life, and even more so in the last eight. To know him was to love him, or to not… but for me, it was like having an extra parent. Thank you for that, Wayne! God broke the mold on you! You are a Legend.” — Angela Lloyd My brother, Roy Ayers, Jr., sums up the enduring rela- tionship we have been blessed to enjoy with Wayne: “Wayne Boyd was a game changer. And he had fun being one. Life was not too large for him and he carried that enthu- siasm to others. Wayne was also FUN to be around. He knew how to reach for the Brass Ring. My introduction to Wayne and Jean came through our families and our love for the sport of dogs. That was an admission ticket to a personality that brightened my day with each encounter. Some of my fond memories were spent at the Rivergrove property. He loved to entertain. The Boyd’s annual lobster feast was greatly anticipated by all who enjoyed the privilege of eat- ing more fresh lobster than should be humanly feasible. And, of course, no visit to Rivergrove would be complete without hanging out in the kennel with the Greats like Waldo and TR. My sister, Linda, and my nephew, Todd Turner, and I will forevermore be grateful for the support we received from the Boyds during the hospital stay of our parents, Roy and Hazel Ayers, following a tragic accident that occurred enroute to the Atlanta Airport as they were about to fly to New York for a judging assignment. Wayne was there in support. True friends never hesitate in times of need! Later, Wayne returned from Maryland to Georgia for our father’s funeral services in 1993. Every Christmas morning, our family received the first phone call from Wayne Boyd.

Roy Ayers, Jr. entertains the Boyds at his home in Alexandria, Virginia.

Wayne and Jean were regular fixtures for poolside parties at my home in Alexandria, Virginia. When Linda moved from Atlanta to Greenville, South Carolina, the Boyds were some of her first guests. In 2011, during our mother’s last days, again Wayne flew in, loaded down with her favorite red roses. Wayne was unfiltered, which, to me, is a fabulous trait. Ordi- nary, run of the mill and boring are not terms that applied to Wayne. My family will always cherish the friendship we were privileged to share with Wayne Boyd. Long live the memory of one of the coolest T-Rex personalities to ever roam Planet Earth. He always gave more than he received.” — Roy Ayers, Jr.

Time presses on, but we do not forget the precious memories of those who are engraved in our hearts forever. The world is a better place because Wayne Boyd was here. Others will remem- ber him fondly, as I do. It is a measure of greatness to live on in the hearts of friends. “Life has to end, love doesn’t.” —Mitch Albom

SPANIEL (FIELD)

TO TRAIN A PUPPY By: Marty Greer, DVM, Director of Veterinary Services at Revival Animal Health 3 Safety Skills Advertisement Feature

T eaching an emergency down. Making sure your puppy comes when called. Learning how to walk on a leash. There are certain skills that are important for every puppy and dog to learn, for their own safety and the safety of those around them. Emergency Down An emergency down is the most life-saving skill you can teach your puppy. In a split second, your well-behaved puppy can race across the road, out of reach. And when you try to call them back, they may race back to you in front of an oncoming speeding semi-truck. You may think it could never happen to you, but that is a risky bet to make. What can you do to keep your puppy safe? Teach an emergency down. An emergency down is a down, drop your belly to the ground and stay put when the puppy is instructed to from a distance. By giving a command from across the road and having your puppy follow it, you CAN save your puppy’s life.

Once puppies reach four months of age, they start to see activities outside their immediate circle and where you are. Once this happens, recalls are much less reliable. Chasing the squirrel or just playing “catch me if you can” is much more rewarding than showing up at your side for a treat. So be sure you have a rock-solid recall BEFORE she is old enough to become independent. Leash Training Every dog, regardless of lifestyle, at some point in their life will need to be able to walk on a leash. Typically, the speed you want to walk at won’t be the speed the puppy finds suitable - they usually lunge ahead or lag behind. Start with letting the puppy get used to wearing a collar such as the Breeder’s Edge ® ID Me ™ Perfect Fit Training Collar . A training collar is different from a normal collar because it has sewn in elastic

that will stretch if the pet gets caught on something. This allows the animal to easily slip out of the collar if needed. Always make sure to watch your puppy as they get use to wearing a collar. Once he tolerates the collar, put on a leash such as the Breeder’s Edge ® ID Me ™ Take Me Home Collars and Leashes and let him acclimate to that. Then, you can start walking. Using a long-handled plastic or wooden spoon with peanut butter or soft cheese on it, hold the leash in your left hand, the

Every dog, regardless of lifestyle, at some point in their life will need to be able to walk on a leash.

The two tricks are that the puppy must be able to drop belly down at a distance and the command must be able to be seen and heard from a distance. The verbal command can be whatever you want, but not sound like any other command or other word you commonly use in conversation. The visual cue must be a brisk move of your hand from your side to fully extended arm and hand over your head.

spoon in your right hand at your left knee and start walking, using the food-coated spoon as a tool to help your puppy forget about the leash. If you have enough yummies on the spoon, he will follow the spoon and eventually end up walking politely at your side. Take along enough treat to refill the bowl of the spoon as he is learning to heel. Head halters are another great tool to use to help teach your puppy to heel while not causing too much trauma to your arm as they tug you down the sidewalk. Halters are how we lead horses and cows - they are not muzzles and are kinder than having your puppy choking on a leash and collar.

How do you teach it? Start young and work hard. Teach the puppy to lie down, belly on the floor. Then start teaching the puppy to lie down, further and further away. Then keep practicing with the puppy on the other side of a gate so they don’t count on being at your side to follow the command. Be certain to work on this long and hard as it truly can be life-saving. Come When Called Coming when called is an important life skill. When puppies are under four months old, this is easy as puppies want to be near you. This is the time to practice a perfect “recall”. The steps are to call the puppy to come, using the same word every time, a thousand times a day. When they arrive, provide a delicious but small treat - cheerios work great. Then release her to go back to playing. NEVER call her to come if you are planning to end whatever fun activity she is engaged in. You want coming to you to always have a positive end - a treat and a release back to an enjoyable activity.
