Ridgebacks by Catherine Lane
http://www.thepossiblecanine.com/
Thursday, August 18, 2005
from Noon to 9 pm
Catherine Lane is a Canine Holistic Consultant and Nutrition Advisor. Her interest in dogs dates back to the 1970’s when she worked as an assistant with her Veterinarian father and also raised and showed Russian Wolfhounds. In the mid nineties she became interested in the Rhodesian Ridgeback (RR), and has been actively involved with this amazing breed ever since. She currently shares her life with two RR’s, one acquired from a local breeder and the other a rescue dog from the US. She volunteers with Ridgeback rescue and also contributes articles to the local newsletter, The Ridgeback Roster, from time to time.

The Rhodesian Ridgeback is a large hunting dog, developed in Africa in the early 1900s, which takes its name from the distinctive cowlick of hair that runs along its spine. Like all hounds the breed is an independent thinker with a strong biological imperative to quarry prey, which, along with an innate protectiveness of home and family, makes it a sometimes challenging dog to train. Prospective owners should have some experience with dogs and be able to walk a line between sensitive and firm as an excess in either direction can create a problem. Only positive reinforcement methods should ever be used with the Ridgeback, and they require a fair amount of exercise. The RR temperament is loyalty and devotion to family, aloof with strangers and always a mind of their own with a great big heart. They are not low maintenance

Breeder: Bev Hurst, Australian Shepherds Friday, August 19, 2005 from Noon to 9 pm
The Australian Shepherd is believed to originate in Basque, Spain. These dogs were used to herd the flocks of Merino sheep in Spain. The Merino sheep became very popular around the world and were exported to other countries, especially England, Australia and the USA. Where the sheep go, so do the dogs that herd them. So it is believed that the Australian Shepherd was introduced to other countries in this manner. The Australian Shepherd is intelligent, primarily a working dog of strong herding and guardian instincts. He is an exceptional companion. He is versatile and easily trained, performing his assigned tasks with great style and enthusiasm. He is reserved with strangers but does not exhibit shyness.

The Australian Shepherd male is between 20-23 inches and the females 18-21. The Australian Shepherd is a well-balanced dog of medium size and bone. He is attentive and animated, showing strength and stamina combined with unusual agility. Slightly longer than tall, he has a coat of moderate length and coarseness with coloring that offers variety and individuality in each specimen. An identifying characteristic is his natural or docked bobtail. The recognized colors are blue merle, red (liver) merle, solid black, and solid red (liver) all with or without white markings and/or tan (copper) points with no order of preference. Used originally as herding dogs, they are also great performance dogs and can be seen in obedience, agility, rally, flyball, disc dog as well as herding competitions. They are a loyal and loving dog, but have a high energy level that is not suitable for all homes.

Chinese Hairless Dogs by Johane Cayer Saturday, August 20, 2005 from Noon to 9 pm
The Chinese Cresteds are a rather exotic and unique breed. Small in size, and they come in 2 varieties, the hairless (hair on their heads, tails and feet) and the powderpuff which is fully coated with a long silky coat. No one knows for sure where the breed originated, but the most likely place is in South America, along with several other hairless breeds. Although not common the breed is far from rare these days and has become a popular show dog and companion. Generally affectionate with their family, sometimes standoffish with strangers, they are graceful, athletic and inquisitive.
Staffordshire Bull Terrier Club of Canada Sunday, August 21, 2005 from Noon to 9 pm
The Staffordshire Bull Terrier is one of the friendliest and silliest breeds in the dog world. They are highly intelligent and extremely submissive to people. It is this submission to their families and their intelligence that has earned them the title of the “nanny dog”. The breed’s wonderful character is also the thing that caused Brits to select the Stafford as the “favourite pedigree pooch” in a census of 118,000 dog owners.

It is not uncommon for someone meeting an older Stafford to ask if the dog is a puppy, when the dog might be 7-10 years of age. The reason is that this breed keeps its joyful love for life and people throughout its entire life. Like a good wine Staffies get better as they mature. But what really sets the breed apart is their instinctive love for children. They have earned the title of “nanny dog”.

Mini Aussies by Julie Andrews Monday, August 22, 2005 from Noon to 9 pm
Extreme Aussies: We are devoted to producing Aussie’s of superior quality and work ethic of various sizes. All of my dogs live in my home with me and are trained and compete in various sports and/or conformation. The idea of “Extreme Aussies” started to blossom when my little female ‘mini’ Aussie “Envy” showed me how talented she was. I was stunned at her ease of trainability and focus that is extreme without intensity. I became fascinated with Aussies! Make sure you check out Envy demonstrating her flyball skills with our flyball team “Extreme Envy” on Wednesday!
Dachshunds
by The Eastern Canada Dachshund Club
Tuesday, August 23, 2005 from Noon to 9 pm
The Eastern Canada Dachshund Club Inc. was formed in 1976, by a group of ten Dachshund owners and breeders. The club is recognized by the Canadian Kennel Club and is incorporated in the province of Quebec. Presently club membership is nearly 140 strong. Club membership is open to Dachshund enthusiasts; details may be found at the club website – http://www.ecdc.ca

Dachshunds are long standing members of the Dog World with evidence that dogs of the dachshund type were known in ancient times. It is generally accepted the modern breeds were developed in Germany in the 16th-18th centuries. Dachshund in German means “badger dog” since they were primarily used for hunting badgers, a formidable adversary. Dachshunds were introduced to North America about 1880 and have grown in number to become one of the best known and most popular of purebred dogs.

ECDC members are proud to showcase their Dachshunds for you. Come and tell us your Dachshund stories, ask us questions, or take one of our dogs for a walk.

Icelandic Sheepdogs by Valerie Sharp Saturday, August 27, 2005 from Noon to 9 pm
Icelandic Sheepdogs are happy, lively, active, energetic and very alert to everything around them. They are affectionate, sweet and eager, to please, intelligent, quick learners, and easy to train. They are exceptionally gentle with children. They are at all times friendly and non-aggressive unless they sense danger. As long as an Icelandic Sheepdog can be with its master, it will lie quietly for hours, under a desk, in a corner, outside the door, watching and waiting. Outside they are a study of poetry in motion!
