Group Description

Think outside the crate! Looking for a list that
focuses on dog showing and breeding, yet talks about important issues
in the dog world? Showdogs-Plus will cover the usual show/breeding topics, both
serious and fun: training, genetics, whelping, screening puppy buyers, UKC, AKC, litter evaluation, etc. But we'll also talk about the animal rights war against breeders and ask questions like

Are good breeders breeding enough?

Does showing have anything to do with breeding choices any more?

Why do we show dogs?

If dogs are pets, why the stigma against breeding for healthy pets?

Why good breeders should advertise...yes, even in the newspaper!

Controversial issues --
anti-breeding bills, breed specific legislation, AKC or UKC policy changes,
federal legislation, may be discussed but will not be the main focus -- there
are other lists for that. You may ask for opinions of specific judges, vets,
or other individuals, but you MUST say "private responses only." Advertising
is forbidden.

This is a list for grown-ups
of any age, newbie or expert. No rudeness allowed, but polite expression of
controversial views is fine. New members are moderated until they post once to be sure they joined to talk about b*tches and studs that are actually dogs and not something seamy. The list is moderated only as necessary and we
DO enforce our rules. Let's put the fun and information back into show lists!
