Recently a group of concerned individuals banded together to better endorse and capture the essence of the purebred dog in all ways possible through promotion, protection and education, with a desire to fortify the status of the purebred dog across Canada. Read More
Really pleased with the FTLOPD 2018 fall towel campaign. About 150 towels were sold coast to coast in Canada and many found their way to our US purebred fanciers as well. I am regularly seeing FB posts showing off these wonderfully bright and hugely promotional items. The large towels were co-designed with Shawn Bennett at CDF who also helped to sponsor the campaign. The small hand towels were an added feature and were a nice compliment at boosters and specialties. Thank you to everyone for participating. Ill be adding a new idea in the coming months and hope to continue the blog here as regularly as I can.

Fun show and plenty of camaraderie…crowded with a full house of dogs and handler but everyone seemed to be handling it well. I believe it was a first for limited breed specialty of UK (British) breeds. Thirty different breeds filed into the group ring. Quite a beautiful sight!!!!!
NEVER ASSUME!! Just because your dog has been safe 1,000 times before, does not mean that it is safe all the time. You never know what will cause a dog that has always been perfect off leash, to suddenly bolt and run. Read More
