Please do not take this the wrong way but - you are right. That is the world you live in. The majority of us do not live in your world of breeding and showing. Our world involves treating our pets as pets. I would imagine the way we treat our dogs when taking them on a walk is completely different then you would treat your dogs when training for shows.

I would love to learn more about/how you go about training for shows but not in this thread please.
Assumptions do nothing but make an ass out of u and me.

We can stick our heads in the sand for only so long before it starts choking us. Face it folks. The pet population is bad ALL OVER THE WORLD!
