Default Yahoo! Groups...

What dog related Yahoo! groups do you belong to (if any)?

I belong to a lot, but I'm always looking for more active ones because I can read them during class (: p).

TIA

I'm on Sheepdog-L (self explanatory), OC-assist-dogs (a service dog training group focusing on positive methods), a couple of dog nutrition lists (the rawfeeding group and k9-nutrition) and a bunch more that I don't recieve in my inbox because I don't have time to read them.

Is k9-nutrition a raw list?

I used to go to the Fila list . . . I learned to stay away from Fila boards though. Too many nutcases One thing good, though, is there will NEVER be enough agreement between Fila people to have one set of standards, so we should be safe from the AKC, lol.

I actually did a Fila seach on the Yahoo lists yesterday and was really suprised at how many there were! Didn't join any though, they are a breed I am doomed to admire from afar, no need for temptations.

I thought BC owners though that, too.

BC owners are MILD, lol. We are talking people who purposely own dogs that have a chip on their shoulders when it comes to people they don't know, lol . . . . what does that tell you about US

I don't know, Renee.. my take on the AKC is that they will do whatever the hell they want, and if they get it in their heads that they can profit off of Filas they'll try to. Even if it means ruining the breed and completely ignoring the wishes of most of the breed fanciers.

Well, one of the things they'll have to deal with is actually handling the dogs, lmao! The Fila is the sole breed that it is NOT a requirement for them to allow the judges to touch them

It would take a LONG, LONG time to have any confidence that you'd bred that completely out. Not too many judges would be willing to risk an "accident" I wouldn't think

Our temperament test is even exactly opposite of other breeds. Our dogs are supposed to react with overt hostility - not unbridled aggression, but be very defensive when confronted with a stranger. Another part of the test is how quickly they will go for a person posing a threat. There can't be hesitation or doubt or waiting for the handler to give them the okay. They have to make up their own minds and go. They are also supposed to go TOWARD someone firing a gun, not just sit quietly.

AKC doesn't listen to the people who say "no, don't recognize this breed". Ever. The Jack Russell people are very lucky to have escaped with their breed's name intact - I wish the show BC's name had been changed upon AKC recognition! It's nuts...

I don't see a dog that's unable to be handled by judges and professional handlers ever doing much in the AKC show ring, though. I bet that's why there's been no pressure to recognize the breed.

Gosh, I do love Filas but I think their temperament actually might be TOO much for me... I'm pretty content with a Zaphod for protection, though he strongly disapproves of what little social life I have now.
