FOR THE LOVE OF PUREBRED DOGS
Recently a group of concerned individuals joined 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.
This small group of advocates was alarmed by the current lack of support and safeguarding of the purebred dog and developed a concerted effort to extend an initiative to other like minded breeders, owners and handlers whereby the purebred would be sanctioned fully at Canadian Kennel Club licensed dog shows across the country and in the community.
To that end, and with the blessing of many clubs, with more contributing regularly, the initiative has spread from coast to coast.
Any club member of any kennel club in Canada is welcome to present the initiative at their shows. Only a table is needed for provided handouts, a few assistants, a welcoming presence for spectators, and roving ambassadors who are willing to circulate throughout the show day providing information, seating at ringside and answering any and all questions pertaining to purebred dogs. A meet and greet of various purebreds is an excellent way to sponsor purebreds generally and breeds specifically. The excitement of this initiative has been contagious, and in a very short time purebred dog owners have rallied to this long overdue cause and an idea has been borne and acted upon with amazing eagerness and enthusiasm.
We have developed a vast array of educational handouts, a beautiful PowerPoint presentation, a stunning sign, a logo, a website, business cards, and our defining title. Each club that presents the initiative has a flyer developed for them that they can distribute in the area of their show. Anyone who wishes to be a part of this enterprise is welcome. We take pride in presenting our dogs and our experience to spectators, providing educational opportunity, and being a part of the sport of purebred dogs in Canada.
