Breed Standards - The blueprint for a breed.

In this article posted in the UKC's Bloodline Magazine, Richard (Rick) Beauchamp explores the value of breed standards and the rapid changes that new fanciers could bring to their chosen breed if care is not take to respect the veterans of the dog world and the work previously done.

To entice you to click the link below and read the article, here is a snippet.

"In a day when the world still held an appreciation for accomplishment and authority, the dog fancy revered its own breed masters. Their word was law. Those were also the days when, after many months of erratic judging, exhibitors traveled long distances to have their breed “set right” by the breed authorities. When the masters judged, they put the dogs in proper order and in proper order they stayed for many months to come."
