Show Clubs are suffering but it isn’t just COVID-19. Show breeders are stuck
with puppies they can’t sell because a 200-year old sport is dying. AKC will
survive with pet shop income because the stay-at-home public wants emotional
support and dogs provide that.
So do we let the puppy mills
take over? Who believes in the well-bred purebred enough to promote the sport?
Who would like to help a judge, a handler, or dog club get free publicity? Who
is going to shows, has a smart phone and would like the equivalent of $200 for
an hour’s work?
Can you take 8 "ShowShots"
and email them to the NetPlaces Network? Can you provide the name of the show
and the judge, exhibitor or show committee person with each photo? If so, email
do our part to support the sport!
