People generally know that PETA is full of nutters, but the vast majority of people IME still support the HSUS.

This is what it boils down to for me too.

Ime few people are really aware of exactly what PETA is up too. The vast majority of people don't know what a puppymill is, other then some buzz word, if The vast majority of people knew about PETA they wouldn't drag in so many donations. Then on top of that you have the hybrid vigour bs myth and the rescue people cramming breeders are evil propaganda and the vast majority believe that when you buy another dog dies.

This. Most people I know think PeTA is just a big group like a humane society who are trying to save animals. They have no idea that "animal rights" is not what they think it is. And I don't actually know anyone besides some people deeply invested in the dog world who know anything negative about H$U$.

Basically, what shadow said. I can so see PetA taking something like this and running- not good for any person who wishes to keep their dogs in the long run.

Meh. Do your research. PETA and HSUS have legislative influence. They have millions in funds to "persuade". Breeders are already being snuffed out by ridiculous laws that make it difficult for them to breed legally.

You'd be surprised what "most" people know about peta/hsus and legislation that affects breeders and pet owners alike.

This may not be a popular opinion, but this is not just a media issue, this is a dog show PR and education issue. A lot of people have purebred dogs (I easily see more purebreds than mixed out and about), I don't think the general public has a problem with purebred dogs.

However, it's not difficult for me to see how dog shows come off as elitist. Many people on here have grown up around dogs and are immersed in dog culture so they have a better understanding, but think about it from the point of view of someone who has never really been exposed to that sort of thing. The only time they see or hear anything about dog shows are the huge televised dog shows-it's not hard to see how someone would have trouble relating to that and therefore make assumptions. The media may not help, but I certainly don't think they are solely responsible.

This is one of the reasons I LOVE the IKC benched show in Chicago (coming up the 22nd and 23rd of this month I believe) and go support the hell out if it every year. It's an awesome way for the general public to see shows in action and have a better understanding as to what goes I to it. I'm "into" dogs and I have gained a whole new appreciation for confo attending this show. I really wish they would have those more frequently in more places.

Just my 2 cents.

I will definitely be there Saturday, but not sure about Sunday. It's awesome you guys get to compete there! The shopping is definitely fantastic-I've gotten my two favorite leashes there and it's the best place I've found to buy antlers.
