2007 CDCA National Specialty

There were 48 Canaan Dogs entered in the 2007 National Specialty, the 10th anniversary of Canaans in the AKC Herding Group, which was held on Friday, September 7th at the Clermont County Fairgrounds in Owensville, Ohio. There was a total of 89 entries, including 5 entries in obedience, 7 entries in rally and 10 entries in the Parade of Titleholders. Our judges were Mrs. Pat Hastings from Aloha, Oregon (Breed & Jr Showmanship), Mrs. Carol O'Bryan from Sebastopol, California (Junior/Senior Puppy Sweepstakes & Veteran Sweepstakes), and Mr. Richard Strong from Indianapolis, Indiana (Obedience & Rally). We were lucky to be indoors with air-conditioning that day as the weather was hot and humid outside; we weren't as fortunate the following 2 days for the supported entry Clermont County KC shows as we were outdoors, but thankfully had a CDCA designated tent for shade and shelter from the afternoon thunderstorms. The weather took pity on us as our herding instinct test on Monday, Sept. 10th was cool, overcast, and low humidity.

National Specialty show and herding instinct test results are listed below and the Clermont County KC supported entry show results can be obtained from the superintendent, Jack Onofrio Shows, website (www.onofrio.com).

Thanks to everyone who made this year's National very "Special"!!!

I want to thank everyone who came to the National (whether showing or not), including our Sweeps breeder judge, Carol O'Bryan, and made it a great success! Of course, I want to congratulate Rosette and Charley for taking a "pet" puppy and making him a National Specialty winner and for their WB/BW/BOS/Best Puppy with their fantastic girl, Breeze! Congratulations also to all the winners of their classes this past weekend and to those gaining titles or legs towards their titles in Rally and the herding test! Our judge, Pat Hastings, said that we had a wonderful group of people who came to watch and/or show and I do believe it!

2007 National Specialty Herding Instinct Test

Sixteen Canaan Dogs were entered in the 2007 CDCA herding instinct test held at Dogwood Acres Farm in Bethel, Ohio, on Monday, September 10th. The evaluator was Ms. Dana Hasemeier, an AKC herding judge and a Welsh Cardigan Corgi breeder, who not only tested the dogs, but gave an impromptu herding clinic that all exhibitors and spectators appreciated. Eleven of the 16 dogs passed, giving a pass rate of 69% for this year's National Specialty test; 6 Canaans attained their CDCA Herding Certified (HC) title, 1 earned the 2nd qualifying score of the 3 required for the CDCA Herding Certified Excellent (HCX), and 4 attained their HCX titles. Ms. Hasemeier awarded the Best Herding Potential trophy (for dogs with no prior livestock experience), a stock stick donated by Denise Gordon in memory of “Wolf” (the #1 herding Canaan Dog & 1993 Best Rookie), and a green pendent necklace donated by Ms. Hasemeier, to Mad River Cool Breeze Blowing (“Breeze”), owned by Rosette Davila-Sargent & Charley Sargent. Ms. Hasemeier then awarded the Best Senior Herding Potential trophy (for dogs with prior livestock experience), a sherpa crate bed donated by Denise Gordon in memory of “Wolf” (the #1 herding Canaan Dog & 1993 Best Rookie), to CH. Riverroc Three Sunrises Lyceum, CGC, HC (“Marley”), owned by Renee & Evan Kent. Those dogs earning titles or qualifying scores are listed below in alphabetical order.

2007 National Specialty Information

For pet owners, there will be a Canaan Dog parade for all non-show Canaans, including rescues, at the host hotel, the Holiday Inn Cincinnati-Eastgate right before the general meeting (the parade will be held from 12 to 1 pm in the room reserved for the meeting) and all participants will receive a commemorative medallion. Come and show off your Canaan!

Though the premium list gives a July 1st deadline for catalog ads for the CDCA National Specialty, I am extending that deadline to July 30th. All ads must be camera-ready, however. If they aren't, they will be returned as I don't have the capabilities to make them camera ready.

If anyone has any questions regarding the catalog ads (or anything else about the National), please feel free to contact me.

I had received word that some folk were confused where to send their entries for the CDCA National Specialty, so I thought I better clarify it.

I'm the one to receive the entries for the National Specialty, whereas, for the supported entry shows (Clermont County Kennel Club), the superintendent is Onofrio.

If you need a premium list for the Clermont County Kennel Club shows, go to the Onofrio website; it will be listed in the Complete Show Listing (under the Show Information icon).

If anyone has any questions regarding either the National or the Clermont County Kennel Club (I also belong to CCKC), please feel to contact me.
