CREATE AN ADVERTISING CAMPAIGN AND PROMOTE YOUR WINNING IMAGE IN 2020 TOY TALK ETCETERA by Bonnie Guggenheim, TNT Advertising Director & Associate Editor

T hroughout this past year I spoke with many of you and discussed new champions as well as Best in Show wins. I continue to be im- pressed with those that have been in- volved in our wonderful sport of show dogs, specifically Toy dogs, for many years. The majority have been long term successful breeders, owners and exhibitors who attribute some degree of their accomplishments to mentors, reading books, attending shows of all types and discussing dogs (both in the ring and the advertised dogs they see inmagazines). It is the advertised new champion, the top winning specials, the new puppies and the well known kennel names that give them a place to seek quality and ideas. Without ad- vertising, who would be aware of your accomplishments? An advertising plan or campaign reaches a target audience, promotes a winning image of your Toy dog and

gives credibility to breeding pro- grams. Think of your ads as your kennel or dogs “brand”. It shows your dogs breed, type, style and of course wins. We are all aware of the kennel names that signify a fabulous head, great moving dogs maybe even wonderful coat texture. In short, it is their brand developed over the years and consistently advertised to show off their accomplishments. This makes the kennel and or the dog, even at times a prestigious win stick in the readers minds as they look to the future. Advertising creates an emotional response affecting your peers decisions as to what to breed, exhibit and promotes your carefully crafted brand. However, branding is not exclusively for the advertising savvy. Top Notch Toys has a knowledgeable and cre- ative design staff at your service! We can create beautiful and eye catching

ads to enhance your brand. Our staff professionals are helpful in design- ing a campaign for that are winning class dogs, as well as Group and Best In Showwinning Specials. I’mhere to help create the brand that puts you in the top ranks and with the creativity of our designers makes you memo- rable. If you have a designer you love working with I’m happy to have them as part of your ad process. Contact me to start creating that ad that gives you a great deal of exposure and promotes an image of success in the show ring. A great photograph is worth a zil- lion words Call me with your excit- ing news and wins because inquiring minds want to know! Bonnie bonnie@aramediagroup.com 512.971.3280

ON THE LINE PROBIOTICS FOR YOUR DOG? by BJ Andrews

N o, I’m not kidding. If you want a healthy producer and show dog in tip-top glossy condition, you need to know the importance of live probiotics which carnivores would naturally get from the intes- tines and stomach of their prey. Modern day dogs, lacking real pro- biotics, often eat dirt, feces, stools, grass or certain plants. If your dog has developed yucky dietary cravings, check your current dog food ingredi- ents and consider changing his diet. What’s the difference between probi- otics and prebiotics? I knew you’d ask. Probiotics are “good” bacteria that eat up bad bacteria and keep the gut healthy. Prebiotics are non-digest- ible carbohydrates that serve as food for probiotics. Premium pet food brands usually list probiotics. If in doubt, check their website to be sure the probiotics are live. Either way, it is perfectly safe for you to provide natural prebiotics. One practical, highly nutritious way is with yogurt and buttermilk which contain both probiotics and prebiot- ics.Most dogs will readily lap these up (real) yogurt and buttermilk because they “know” what’s good for them. The fermenting process produces the same gut-healthy bacteria. Now you know why people eat fermented foods like sauerkraut, kefir and kimchi. Your dogwill reject those sour-tasting foods but he will eat “cultured” yogurt and buttermilk.

So why are probiotics important? Once again, when you or your dog consume probiotics the intestines turn it into good bacteria that eats up the bad bacteria. Really! The benefi- cial bacteria helps with digestion but they also manufacture nutrients. In both people and pets (1) good bacte- ria help protect against food-borne pathogens and get this, they can help regulate body weight. Right. In you and your dog. You probably know this but just in case, take note. Probiotics are killed by anti-biotics. They can also be wiped out by other drug therapies, colonics (enemas) or even a bad case of diarrhea. It is important to quickly replace them in the diet. Gail kresky cresci, Ph.D, a gastro- enterology researcher at Cleveland Clinic Children’s Division, stresses the importance of prebiotics (called long-chain carbohydrates) as food for good gut bacteria. In other words, lots of prebiotics equal happy probiotics. Bananas are an excellent source of prebiotics that dogs seem to naturally like. (1) You may remember the top- winning Bulldog handled by Carroll James? He baited for bananas… Hard on the handler but like any good dog- man, Carroll kept his charge happy in the ring. Dogs will also eat asparagus and garlic will do them no harm. Onions are out of favor for dogs but my dog- stew always contained onions. Raw

carrots, berries and apples are a great source of prebiotics and I never met a naturally-reared dog that wouldn’t sample them. Bite-size apple pieces are one of my dog’s favorite treats. So are grapes but after the “poison grapes” scare, I do wash them be- cause like most of today’s fruits and vegetables, grapes are over-sprayed with poison and unlike apples, pota- toes, oranges, etc. we don’t peel away the protective “skin” on grapes. Can you get probiotics from supple- ments? Well of course you can but be sure they are the real thing. For you or your dog, it’s best to skip the flavored yogurt which usually con- tains high amounts of sugar, which causes inflammation. While there’s no set amount for a daily dose of probiotics for you or your dog, a happy target is at least 1 billion with a “b”. It has been suggested that since your dog has a comparatively shorter digestive tract, the good bacteria may not survive the trip from the stomach to the colon so if you’d rather give a pill than feed the real stuff, it is best to use a time-release capsule.Lastly, I should mention gas, unpleasant in people and a significant risk in large breeds. I’ve covered why big breeds are more prone to bloat—type “The- DogPress bloat gastric torsion” in your search engine. Oh, and for more on bananas, query “TheDogPlace ba- nanas mood food.” Your dog’s gonna thank you!

“BANANAS ARE AN EXCELLENT SOURCE OF PROBIOTICS THAT DOGS SEEM TO NATURALLY LIKE.”

PRESENTATION: IT DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE by Walter Sommerfelt

I was reading the critique of a local restaurant the other day in my local paper. The critic was talking about the food, the prices, the décor and what made it unique. When evaluat- ing the entrées there was a specific mention of the “Presentation” of the meal itself. Being curious I looked up presenta- tion in food evaluation. The descrip- tion I found was that “Presentation is the art of modifying, processing, arranging, or decorating food to en- hance its aesthetic appeal.” The definition brought me back to an experience I had several years ago while living in Memphis, Ten- nessee. I had the opportunity to be a part of a team that was cooking in the world famous “Memphis in May” Barbecue contest. During the com- petition I learned just how important “presentation” was involved in the over-all scoring of the team. I was surprised to learn that if any of the sauce itself dripped onto the plate it was a DQ for the dish. There have also been times when I have watched one of those Chef Shows on cable TV and again the presentation of the food carried a very high value in the evaluation process. YOU ARE PROBABLY WONDERING WHAT DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH DOG SHOWS? Just look at the definition “The art of modifying, processing, and arranging to enhance its aesthetic appeal.” Is this not what we all do when showing our dogs. Just like food we start with the main ingredient our dogs. Then through a variety of ways we work toward pre- senting that dog in the best possible way to appeal to the judge.

the coated breeds are often a lot of work a skilled person knows how to use that coat to their advantage. Keeping the nails trimmed properly is another important part of the puzzle. There are times when the nails are so long you can hear them clicking on the mats on the down and back and in some cases this can lead to making the feet themselves look very bad. Many people use special shampoos, chalk, hair dye and other substances to alter or enhance the animal under their care. The secret to this is being sure it’s done correctly and does not come off onto the hands of the judge or leave white spots on themats or even a big puff of smoke when the dog shakes out inside the ring. Foreign substance found in the coat gives the judge the right to immediately excuse the dog from the ring. All judges will tell you two things they hate are dirty dogs and dogs that when they are examin- ing them have a bunch of gunk in the coat that comes off in their hands. If you have a smooth coated animal, you don’t have as many opportunities, but you can still do things to be sure you knowwhat you need to do tomake your dog look its best. Start by being sure you are stacking your dog prop- erly to present a picture to the judge of the balance and type of your dog. How you hold the head, and the tail, being sure the front is set properly under the dog and the rear is not over stretched or under stretched make a difference in what appears to the judge. Also being sure the topline is being shown properly for that breed is equally important. Everyone needs to learn how to properly show the bite and should make sure the dogs’ teeth are clean and look white and healthy. When

The first part comes through raising happy, healthy, sound animals with good temperaments. Hopefully we follow that up with training, and con- ditioning building strong muscles and a very good basic physical specimen. Once our exhibit has the basics solved, we move on to the other phas- es. Enhancing virtues and minimiz- ing faults in the eyes of the judge. So, I guess you could say we only want the judge to see the good parts and hope we can fool them from seeing the not so good parts. This can and is done in many ways. Let’s start with a coated breed. Coat- ed breeds can offer you blessings as well as difficulties in the presenta- tion phase. If you are blessed with a dog with enough coat in quantity and texture you may have hit the jackpot. Coat can be used to create many illu- sions to the judge that fails to search the coat to see what is under it. Some examples would be a dog that when standing naturally is east and west in front or maybe cow-hocked in the rear. A skillful groomer can use scis- sors and other techniques to make it appear that when the dog is stopped and standing naturally, he appears to be truly perfect. Hopefully a skilled judge feels through the coat to find the faults or is good enough to pay at- tention to the pads of the feet to pick it up while the dog is in motion. Like- wise, an animal lacking in neck can be enhanced through stripping out coat or even clipping it at the withers and having the neck hair lay over it to make it appear much longer than it is. Toplines can be altered through numerous approaches to make them appear not what they really are so the judge must use his hands and his eyes to get a true evaluation. Even though

and gives the appearance of good reach and drive. Often what racing does is throwoff the top line andmake it look like the animal is working very hard to go nowhere fast. On the down and back it often causes the exhibit to appear to crab or sidewind and in some cases cause the dog to be pull- ing to side and throw the front or rear out of rhythm. As the handler or pre- senter, it is your job to practice show- ing your exhibit on a loose lead at the speed which makes him or her look their very best. Again, know the prop- er gait and preferred speed for your breed and adapt accordingly. Good judges know proper movement and try to evaluate the whole dog while in motion. In evaluating movement, they are also assessing if the dog has the proper structure and ability to do the job for which he is bred. Hopefully if you are serious about the presentation of your exhibit you will do your homework and do all the little things that make a big difference. Re- member presentation is the art of cre- ating an enhancing aesthetic appeal it can and often does make a difference it the outcome.

Hopefully, in preparing your exhibit for the show ring you understand the proper gait for your breed. Assuming your dog has the proper gait style the next most important part of the equa- tion is the tempo or speed in which you exhibit. How fast or slow you move your ani- mal has a great deal to do with the overall presentation to the judge. While in movement the judge is eval- uating many different things not just reach and drive. They are looking at toplines, tail carriage, head carriage, rolling of the body and so on. I am a proponent of the saying “Speed Kills”. Normal canine movement can show numerous faulty actions such as “Crabbing”, Crossing over in the front or rear, Weaving, Moving close, Cow hocks, paddling, knitting and purl- ing, tied at the elbows, or out at the elbows, as well as other faults that can be minimized or as in most cases maximized by the speed at which they are shown as well as the placement of the lead and the control exerted by the handler.

practicing showing the bite remember your showing it to the judge not look- ing at it yourself so don’t block their view with your head. Assuming you have done all the cor- rect things regarding health, coat care, and proper set up the most criti- cal part of the equation is next. HOW SHOULD I MOVE MY DOG? Obviously, all dogs have some type of movement described in their indi- vidual standard. Learning the differ- ent gaits and how to recognize and understand them is important. One of the better books out there to talk about gait is Dogsteps by the late Rachel Page Elliot. Page Elliott was one of America’s most respected au- thorities on dog gait. She presented lectures and videos to audiences all over the world and through her books and videos many people have gained a better understanding of the Natu- ral Gaits, The Walk, The Amble, The Pace, The Trot, Hackney Gaiting, The suspension or “Flying Trot” the Cantor and The Gallop. The book will also help you to understand that good performance is the test of good structure.

Over the years the event not only raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the world-renowned St. Jude Chil- dren’s Research Hospital in Memphis, TN, but also raised awareness of the many activities for people with their dogs as well establishing a voice for dog people in the Memphis area with regard to legislation. Many aspects of today’s AKCRoyal Canin show can be traced back to the St. Jude event. Along with Carol his wife of 36 years they have bred well over 90 AKC Champions including Group, Best in Show and Spe- cialty Winners, dual Champions and multiple performance titled dogs.

ON A PERSONAL NOTE NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS OF A DOG ENTHUSIAST

T ruth be told, I donot usuallymake resolutions at the beginning of a new year. I always fear that I will be unable to keep them and will feel as though I have let myself down. This new year is also the start of a new decade, and, hopefully, the start of new relationships and experi- ences with dogs, as well as continua- tion of the paths I have been on during the past few years. I have always had goals (things I want to accomplish) and options (potential paths to move toward my goals), so those are a little like resolutions anyway. Within the big part of my life that is dedicated to dogs—judging, exhibiting, working with breeders, and caring for the dogs I have at home—there are still many things I want/need to work on, both personally and professionally. Here are my 2020 resolutions within those four groupings:

JUDGING: • Attend the National Specialties for Poodles, CavalierKingCharles Spaniels and Pomeranians. These can be made to fit in my schedule and I do love to attend National Specialties for breeds I am study- ingwhenever it is possible. • Complete my application for the five breeds I am not approved to judge in the Toy Group by the end of May. • Continue to always have my big book of standards at the ready while I am judging. I find that even though I have reviewed the breeds I am judging the night before, I sometimes like to refer to the actual wording of the stan- dard when I am making a deci- sion between two deserving dogs: an essential part of type? a fault vs a serious fault? >

“Continue to learn! I HAVE ALWAYS SAID MY GOAL IN LIFE IS TO BE A PROFESSIONAL STUDENT, AND DOG SHOW JUDGING IS A PERFECT OPPORTUNITY FOR CONTINUOUS LEARNING.”

time with me every day that I am at home. • Play with dogs. Cuddle with dogs. Have a relationship with each dog based on his/her own individual personality. • Be obsessive about keeping up with each dog’s grooming needs—especially nail trimming. • Pay close attention to weight and nutrition. • Enjoy living with dogs! Raise good pure-bred, purpose-bred canine citizens. There are many more issues I would love to be able to address, but one thing I do know is that my time is limited. “If there were world enough, and time” I would love to be able to be involved in some performance sports, as well as helping to work with leg- islators who are being persuaded by the animal rights fanatics, be more involved with good and true animal charities, do more work for the clubs of which I am a member, and partici- pate in more educational activities. Maybe another year will see a change of focus. Wishing everyone who is still reading a very Happy New Year and much success with your doggy activities and your own New Year’s resolutions! Hope to see you soon at a dog show!

• Work on having a better re- sponse when someone verbally attacks me in the ring. A shocked stare is probably not quite what I want, but I do not want to jump to a bench show committee un- less it is clearly indicated. I trea- sure feedback, but really prefer a quiet, non-confrontational con- versation after I have completed judging for the day. • Continue to learn! I have always said my goal in life is to be a pro- fessional student, and dog show judging is a perfect opportunity for continuous learning. EXHIBITING: • Train as often as possible! Both my skills (I amnot a handler) and the dogs’ skills need constant practice. And make it fun for all of us! • ALWAYS congratulate win- ners in the ring with me. Be a good sport. • ALWAYS make only positive comments about the competi- tion, especially while ringside. • Keep working on learning to groom an Irish Terrier correctly. • Partner with any handler work- ing with my dogs to ensure they get what they need to do right

by the dog and manage the dog’s career appropriately. Enjoy the relationships. • Sort out who may be a potential special. Get the Italian Grey- hounds ready for the National in September. WORKING WITH BREEDERS: • Keep my Irish Terrier girls in the best of health and never miss when they come in season. • Keep my Italian Greyhound boys in the best of health and available if called upon by my breeder-partner. • Treasure the relationships with breeders who are willing to work with me and who have similar vi- sion for the future of the breed(s). I am not in the position to whelp and rear puppies any longer be- cause of my travel schedule and good partners are like solid gold to me. • Treasure every puppy produced and evaluate them realistically. • Be careful to not get overloaded with dogs (again). CARING FOR DOGS: • Never put off routine veterinary care. • Ensure every dog gets individual

THE CHINESE CRESTED

THE BAD, THE GOOD & THE UGLY!

by Shelley Hennessy

puppies that trotted aroundwith their tails straight out. Pekes, Poms and Havanese carry their tails over their backs—not Cresteds! I have my own ideas why the tail sec- tion was rewritten when the breed came into the AKC, but I think you can figure it out! You find most bad tails on Powder - puffs, but the occasional Hairless will appear in the ring with a curly or corkscrew tail. It doesn’t help that many pro handlers and some owner handlers, prop or push the tail over

on the dog’s back. As a judge, I think, “Hey, thanks! I might have missed that bad tail, if you hadn’t pointed it out to me!” When judging Cresteds, a bad tail is something that should be evaluated like any other fault. Judging the over- all dog, you may find yourself giving that dog points, a major or even the breed, if it is outstanding in other ways. But I find it extremely hard to believe that there wasn’t something better in the Toy Group to give first to—and Best in Show, please!

THE BAD I often ask other judges, “Would you give 1st in the Hound Group to a Whippet with its tail laying on its back?Would you give 1st in theNon- Sporting Group to a Dalmatian with its tail laying on its back? Or would you give 1st in the Herding Group to a German Shepherd with its tail lay- ing its back?” Then why, why, why are Chinese Cresteds with their tails lay- ing on their backs not only winning Groups, but also Best in Shows? The Chinese Crested standard, un- der tail, states, “When dog is in mo- tion, the tail is carried gaily and may be carried slightly forward over the back.” The dictionary states ‘gaily’ re- fers to, “In a joyous or happy manner.” The standard does not say ‘gay’ tail, which is a completely different thing! And while it says the tail may be car- ried slightly over the back, it does not have to be! And back to the dictionary, slightly means, “to a small degree.” All Crested standards prior to full AKC recognition, stated, “Tail car- ried up or out” or words to that ef- fect. A Crested with its tail carried straight out was perfectly fine and it is interesting to see that some of our older judges seem to remember this! On the other hand, I remember a show years ago, not too long after the breed came into the Toy group, when a judge withheld first place in a puppy class with three beautiful

“WHEN DOG IS IN MOTION, THE TAIL IS CARRIED GAILY AND MAY BE CARRIED SLIGHTLY FORWARD OVER THE BACK.”

“Temperament is fantastic. RARELY DO YOU SEE A SHY CRESTED.”

You may win, but it’s because most judges realize it is not a conformation fault, but the groomer/handler’s fault. THE GOOD Movement has improved tremen- dously since the breed entered the AKC ring. You rarely see a Crested with hackney movement. Not all have great reach and drive, but most trot efficiently. Down and back movement is pretty good with the occasional cow-hocked dog. Powderpuffs tend to look closer in the rear as they go away, but this is almost certainly be- cause of the heavy hock coat, in most cases, more profuse than the socks on the Hairless. Top lines are overall good and level. The Hairless can’t hide anything, but artful brushing on the Powderpuff top line can hide dips and rises that shouldn’t be there. The Chinese Crested is rectangu- lar, not square and not off-square! The wording in our standard is mis- leading. It states, “Body length from withers to base of tail is slightly lon- ger than the height at the withers.” Some judges seem to glance at this and think, ‘Slightly longer than tall.’ No! The measurement is from the withers, not from the front of the dog! You’re talking inches here from the chest to the withers, and this means rectangular, which is also the first word in the standard after “Propor- tions”: rectangular! There aren’t as

many square Cresteds as there used to be and I have never seen one I thought was too long. I love that the Crested standard says, “Any color or combination of colors.” Some are definitely flashier than others, but we shouldn’t be swayed by that. Even the Hairless can come in various skin shades and they get darker in the summer sun. Many Powderpuffs change color over their life span. Temperament is fantastic. Rarely do you see a shy Crested. Some may not like the show ring and not always get their tail up, but all love people! THE UGLY I’m sure other Crested people can attest to this. How many times have you tried to explain to someone what a Crested is and you end up saying, “You know, the hairless dog that al- ways wins the Ugly Dog contest?” And the person always goes, “Oh yeah!” They know exactly what you mean! Thenyouhasten to explain that the breed really isn’t ugly! Will this ever end? ABOUT THE AUTHOR I currently judge 4 groups with breeds in the other 3 groups, plus Rally and Lure Coursing. I am a breeder-judge of Chinese Cresteds, Whippets and Afghan Hounds.

Okay, now to coat. I think most judges realize that there are true Hairless, with sparse furnishings on head, feet and tail, little to no body hair and skin smooth and soft! The so-called hairy Hairless, tend to have body hair to some degree, which is removed for the show ring. The skin on these dogs may not be quite as smooth. But both are perfectly acceptable! Some judges like to run their hands backward over the dogs back (toward the head) checking for stubble. Believe me, all you are catch- ing are the bad groomers! Under “Coat”, concerning the Pow- derpuff, the standard states “The PP variety is completely covered with a double soft and silky coat. Grooming is minimal—consisting of presenting a clean and neat appearance.” Con- cerning both varieties, HL and PP, the standard states, “Hair on the ears and face may be trimmed for neat- ness in both varieties.” So every time I see a beautiful Powderpuff with a gosh awful “V” shaved to the skin on its neck, it drives me crazy. No- where in the standard is this allowed or condoned! It is so prevalent, that you rarely see a PP that hasn’t been subjected to this! I even had a newer handler say to me, “But the judges won’t put you up if you don’t do it!” Sor - ry to break it to you guys, but the judges I have talked to in person about this, hate it as much as I do!

JUDGING THE CHINESE CRESTED

by The American Chinese Crested Club

T he Chinese Crested is a strik- ing dog in both the Hairless and Powderpuff. When they first en- ter the ring you should be looking for: “A Toy dog, fine-boned, elegant and graceful. The distinct varieties are born in the same litter. The Hair- less with hair only on the head, tail and feet and the Powderpuff com- pletely covered with hair. The breed serves as a loving companion, playful and entertaining.” When you stand back to observe the dog on the table, keep in mind that they are rectangular rather than square. The Hairless variety can be sensitive to cold hands during the table exam and may tuck up. The topline should be assessed as the dog is moving around the ring. Starting with the head—the Chinese Crested head is to be a wedge from the top and from the side. There is to be a slight but distinct stop. The eyes are almond shaped and set wide apart, which enhances the alert and intense expression. Teeth are differ- ent in Hairless Chinese Cresteds— you can have everything from a full mouth correctly placed to a minimal
