STAN: WELCOME BACK TO "UNITED KENNEL CLUB"

PREMIER'S LIVE STAGE.

I'M STAN AND HERE WITH ME AGAIN IS NICOLE SEDLECKY.

NICOLE: THANK YOU, STAN.

I'M SO EXCITED TO BE HERE FOR VIRTUAL PREMIER.

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO SENT IN THEIR VIDEOS FOR

THE TOTAL DOG CHALLENGE.

WE ARE NOW AT OUR HERDING GROUP WITH THE LARGEST

ENTRY OF 39 DOGS. STAN: THAT'S WONDERFUL.

OUR HERDING DOGS ARE EVOLVED FROM BREEDS THAT WERE TRAINED

TO HERD LIVESTOCK.

THEY WOULD TAKE FLOCKS OF SHEEP, GOATS, COWS,

AND HERD THEM IN A SPECIFIC DIRECTION.

NICOLE: FOR LIKE FARMERS, AND GUARDIANS,

AND THINGS LIKE THAT.

DO THEY TEACH THEM HOW TO HERD?

LIKE HOW DO, HOW DO-- THESE DOGS JUST DO IT ON THEIR OWN,

DON'T THEY?

STAN: THEY NATURALLY DO IT.

AND, AND IT'S LIKE REPETITION, THE OLDER DOGS TEACH

THE YOUNGER DOGS, AND IT'S PROGRESSION.

NICOLE: YEAH, AND THERE, IT'S A LARGE GROUP,

AND THERE ARE VERY POPULAR BREEDS THAT YOU SEE.

STAN: AND THEY ARE PROBABLY ONE OF THE MORE

INTELLIGENT BREEDS.

BECAUSE THEY'RE, THEY, THEY, THEY'RE TRAINED,

OR THEY'RE NATURALLY INSTINCTIVE.

THEIR NATURAL INSTINCT IS TO WORK WITH MAN.

NICOLE: MM-HMM, YEAH.

OUR HERDING GROUP JUDGE TODAY IS TRACY DOTY

OF NORTH CAROLINA.

AND LET'S GET STARTED.

IT'S A BIG GROUP, SO LET'S START WATCHING.

ALL RIGHT, OUR FIRST DOG IN THE HERDING GROUP IS

CARDIGAN WELSH CORGI 602.

TORWEN'S REMI OF ROLLNOAKS.

REMI IS OWNED BY ANNETTE HURST OF GEORGIA.

STAN: THERE IS ANOTHER KIND OF CORGI, WHAT IS IT?

NICOLE: ALL THESE QUIZZES.

THE PEMBROKE.

STAN: AND WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?

NICOLE: WELL, THE MAIN DIFFERENCE IS,

IS HAVING A DOCKED TAIL.

STAN: HAVING A TAIL, ABSOLUTELY.

NICOLE: CARDIGANS I ALWAYS REMEMBER CARDIGAN IS LIKE YOU

HAVE A LITTLE EXTRA SOMETHING OVER YOUR SHOULDERS.

THEY HAVE A LITTLE EXTRA WITH HAVING A TAIL.

STAN: MM-HMM.

NICOLE: THERE ARE A FEW OTHER DIFFERENCES

THOUGH WITH THE BREEDS.

CARDIGANS HAVE A WIDE, WIDER HEAD.

STAN: CORRECT.

NICOLE: LITTLE BIT BIGGER BODY.

STAN: BOTH EXCELLENT CATTLE DOGS, SHEEP DOGS.

NICOLE: OH, THEY WILL HERD ANYTHING.

STAN: THEY ACTUALLY HERD KIDS.

NICOLE: WE HAVE A COUPLE CORGIS AT THE OFFICE AT WORK.

AND, OH, THEY'LL, THEY HERD ALL THE OTHER

DOGS IN THE PLAY YARD.

STAN: IT'S INTERESTING TO WATCH THEM BECAUSE IT BECOMES

SO NATURAL FOR THEM.

NICOLE: REMI, WE LIVE AT THE FIRST HOUSE ON

THE ROAD AND REMI IS OUR NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH.

SHE MONITORS EVERY CAR ENTERING OUR NEIGHBORHOOD

AND PROVES OR DISAPPROVES ON THEM ENTERING.

[LAUGHS]

♪♪♪

THEY ARE SO LOW TO THE GROUND AND I'VE GOT TO

THINK THAT BECAUSE THEY WERE CATTLE HERDERS, RIGHT?

AND HEELERS. STAN: RIGHT.

NICOLE: SO THEY, THEY NIP AT THE HEELS OF THE COWS

TO GET THEM TO MOVE.

STAN: CORRECT.

NICOLE: BEING LOW I GUESS WOULD,

WOULD GIVE YOU AN ADVANTAGE THERE.

ALL RIGHT, WE HAVE BORDER COLLIE 603.

MCCIDOS ACE UP MY SLEEVE.

ACE IS OWNED BY JANET BRUNER, CEDAR HILLS, TEXAS.

STAN: THEY SAY THAT BORDER COLLIES ARE PROBABLY ONE OF

THE SMARTEST DOGS THERE IS.

THEY PICK UP ON THINGS, THEY ARE VERY AGILE.

NICOLE: THEY SEEM TO BE A BIT INDEPENDENT.

STAN: VERY INDEPENDENT.

NICOLE: MORE SO THAN LIKE WHAT YOU WERE EXPLAINING

THE GOLDEN RETRIEVER.

STAN: RIGHT, RIGHT.

BUT THAT'S WHAT THEY'RE TRAINED, THAT'S HOW THEY,

THEY'RE TRAINED TO HERD, ON THEIR OWN.

BECAUSE THEY'RE HERDING IN FRONT OF THE OWNER,

THE OWNER IS NOT RUNNING RIGHT BEHIND IT.

NICOLE: RIGHT.

STAN: THEY'RE OFF ON THEIR OWN.

SO THEY'RE A THINKING BREED.

NICOLE: ALWAYS THINKING, ALWAYS WANTING

SOMETHING TO DO.

ACE LOVES TO WORK.

DOESN'T MATTER IF CONFORMATION, HERDING, RALLY,

OBEDIENCE, OR DOCK JUMPING.

DOCK DIVING AND HERDING ARE HIS FAVORITE,

AND HE LOVES WATER AS MUCH AS MY LABRADORS.

THE VIDEO THAT THEY SENT IN OF ACE WAS OF HIM DOCK JUMPING.

BUT YEAH, LIKE YOU SAID, ALWAYS THINKING,

ALWAYS MOVING.

I LOVE WHEN HE POPS HIS LITTLE EARS UP TOO.

[LAUGHS]

MAKES ME THINK OF MY, ONE OF MY FAVORITE MOVIES, "BABE."

STAN: OH.

NICOLE: WHEN THE BORDER COLLIE IS, IS TEACHING,

TEACHING THE PIG HOW TO HERD. STAN: RIGHT.

[LAUGHS]

♪♪♪

NICOLE: NEXT WE HAVE AUSTRALIAN SHEPHERD

RIP ROARIN DOWN PENNY LANE.

PENNY IS OWNED BY FRAN SOLOMON OF CALIFORNIA.

SO AUSTRALIAN SHEPHERDS, THEY KIND OF HAVE A SIMILAR

LOOK TO THE BORDER COLLIE IN A LOT OF WAYS.

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE LIKE MAIN DIFFERENCES OF THE BREED?

STAN: EARS.

TAIL.

NICOLE: MM-HMM.

STAN: THEY ARE BOTH, THEY ARE BOTH HERDING DOGS,

AND THEY BOTH HERD VERY WELL.

NICOLE: YES, THE OWNER OF PENNY SAYS THAT SHE IS ALWAYS

READY TO DO SOMETHING.

WHAT, WHAT COLOR IS THIS DOG?

STAN: THAT WOULD BE A ROAN.

AND ROAN IS WHEN THEY HAVE THE DARK MARKINGS AND THE

MARBLING COLOR AS WELL.

NICOLE: SO THEY, THE MERLE, THEY HAVE RED MERLE?

STAN: YES.

OH, OH I SAID ROAN, I'M SORRY, IT'S MERLE.

NICOLE: IT'S KIND OF, IT'S, IT'S SIMILAR, RIGHT?

SOME, SOME COLORS, DIFFERENT BREEDS CALL THEM

A DIFFERENT NAME.

STAN: CORRECT.

NICOLE: NOW WE HAVE BORDER COLLIE

STAN: BUT SHE LOOKS LIKE SHE IS IN A HAPPY HOME NOW.

NICOLE: YES, TWIXX DOES A LOT, LOT OF DIFFERENT EVENTS.

I KNOW FROM, FROM PROCESSING, AND PROCESSING EVENTS,

AND SEEING HER NAME IN A LOT OF THINGS.

STAN: RIGHT.

NICOLE: BUT THEY'RE NOT, CORRECT?

STAN: NO, THEIR HEAD STYLE IS TOTALLY DIFFERENT,

MUZZLE STYLE IS TOTALLY DIFFERENT.

EARS ARE ABOUT THE SAME.

AND SIZE OBVIOUSLY IS A BIG DEAL.

[LAUGHS]

SHE IS GOING TO BE A STAR.

[LAUGHS]

STILL JUST A PUPPY, BUT IT'S REALLY,

CAN YOU IMAGINE HAVING A PUPPY RIGHT NOW?

NOT HAVING SHOWS TO GO TO.

STAN: WELL, YOU CAN SEE THE MAKE AND SHAPE OF THE DOG,

AND YOU CAN SEE THE FOUNDATION OF THE DOG, AND HOW IT,

IT LOOKS LIKE THE OTHER BREED, BUT IT,

IT'S GOT CHARACTERISTICS THAT SEPARATE IT.

ALMOST NIGHT AND DAY.

THE OTHER THING THAT IS KEYNOTE ON THIS BREED

YOU CAN SEE THE ACTUAL HARSHNESS OF THE COAT.

IT'S NOT A SOFT COAT.

NICOLE: DOES THAT MAKE IT, DOES THAT MAKE IT

WHEN THEY HAVE THAT TEXTURE EASIER TO GROOM?

STAN: YES, BECAUSE IF IT'S SOFT--

NICOLE: I WOULD THINK IT DOESN'T MATT AS MUCH.

STAN: IF IT'S SOFT AND COTTONY,

IT WOULD MATT SO MUCH EASIER.

NICOLE: GINJER LOVES DOCK JUMPING AND ALWAYS TALKS BACK

NICOLE: THIS IS CZECHOSLOVAKIAN VLCAK 625,

EDOX MIRACLE MIA AT GREYFARER.

SYRAK.

OWNED BY JING GOH OF SAN PEDRO, CALIFORNIA.

WHO SENT IN A VIDEO OF THIS DOG PARTICIPATING

IN NOSE WORK.

STAN: HMM.

I BET YOU THERE IS A LOT OF SHEDDING

GOING ON IN HER HOUSE.

[LAUGHS]

NICOLE: YES.

JIN--

STAN: EVEN LOOK AT THE TEETH,

LOOK AT THE SIZE OF THOSE TEETH.

SHE IS JUST SHOWING THE BITE.

NICOLE: YOU, YOU HAVE SO MANY BREEDS.

AS A JUDGE, STAN, YOU HAVE SO MANY BREEDS THAT YOU'RE

IN CHARGE OF KNOWING AND UNDERSTANDING.

HOW DID YOU, LIKE WHAT, WHAT WAS THE FIRST THING THAT YOU

CONSIDERED WHEN DECIDING THAT YOU WANT TO BECOME A JUDGE?

OR NOT CONSIDERING, WHAT YOU THINK OTHER

PEOPLE SHOULD CONSIDER.

STAN: WELL, A LOT OF TIMES JUDGING IS JUST A PROGRESSION.

I ALWAYS SAY IT'S A PROGRESSION.

IT'S LIKE A, FOLLOWS B, FOLLOWS C, FOLLOWS D.

AND THE MAJORITY OF OUR JUDGES ARE, OR WERE BREEDERS,

AND ARE STILL BREEDERS.

THERE ARE A LOT OF JUDGES THAT STILL ACTIVELY BREED

AND CAMPAIGN DOGS.

A LOT OF OUR JUDGES WERE PROFESSIONAL HANDLERS,

LIKE MYSELF.

SO WE WOULD BE PAID TO SHOW PEOPLE'S DOGS,

ALL DIFFERENT BREEDS.

AND IT'S JUST A PROGRESSION.

OUR BODIES START TO BREAK DOWN,

SO WHEN WE CAN'T RUN AROUND ANY LONGER, WE START TO POINT.

[LAUGHS]

NICOLE: ALL RIGHT, THIS IS--

STAN: HERE, LOOK AT THE EXPRESSION.

NICOLE: CZECHOSLOVAKIAN VLCAK ESPER.

EN ENRA THE THIRD Z PERONOWKI.

STAN: WOW.

NICOLE: AGAIN OWNED BY JING GOH.

STAN: SEE THE SIZE OF THOSE TEETH?

NICOLE: BIG TEETH.

STAN: YES.

NICOLE: THIS DOG PARTICIPATED IN RALLY OBEDIENCE.

WOW.

THAT REALLY SHOWS, YOU KNOW, WE HAVE ONE, TWO, FIVE,

FIVE CZECHOSLOVAKIAN VLCAKS ENTERED.

AND THEY'RE PARTICIPATING IN LURE COURSING,

NOSE WORK, RALLY.

STAN: IT SHOWS THEY'RE MULTIFACETED.

THEY, THEY CAN DO MORE THAN JUST ONE THING.

NICOLE: I'M SURE THIS IS A BREED TOO,

I MEAN THEY'RE NOT VERY POPULAR.

I'M SURE THAT THEY ARE ANOTHER ONE YOU WANT

TO KEEP ACTIVE, BECAUSE LIKE YOU SAID, THEY'RE--

STAN: THEY'RE THINKING, YES, THEY'RE

A THINKING BREED.

NICOLE: AND SOMETIMES, BUT SOMETIMES WHEN THOSE,

WHEN DOGS THINK, AND THEY DON'T HAVE A WHOLE LOT TO DO--

STAN: THEY GET IN TROUBLE.

NICOLE: THINK, THINKING ISN'T THE BEST THING.

STAN: RIGHT.

NICOLE: FOR, FOR YOUR GOODS, AND YOUR HOME.

STAN: HOLES IN WALLS, AND HOLES IN BEDSPREADS,

AND MATTRESSES, AND SOFAS.

LOOK AT THE SIZE OF THIS DOG.

NICOLE: WE NOW HAVE AGAIN ANOTHER CZECHOSLOVAKIAN VLCAK,

DRAKE DARKSTAR AMANT GRIS.

RONIN.

OWNED BY JING GOH OF SAN PEDRO, CALIFORNIA.

STAN: YOU KNOW I WAS JUST OUT THERE, NOT JUST OUT THERE,

BUT I WAS OUT THERE RECENTLY.

NICOLE: IN CALIFORNIA?

STAN: AND I BELIEVE I SAW A WHOLE BUNCH OF THESE.

AND I THINK THEY WERE PROBABLY HERS.

AND THEY WERE ALL REALLY PRETTY BREED TYPE.

A LITTLE NOISY AT TIMES, BEING IN THEIR CRATES,

YOU KNOW, WAITING FOR THEIR TURN TO BE SHOWN.

BUT ALL UNDER CONTROL.

NICOLE: WHAT DO YOU MEAN WHEN YOU SAY BREED TYPE?

STAN: BREED TYPE.

EACH BREED HAS A PARENT CLUB WHICH DECIDES AND,

AND TELLS YOU EXACTLY WHAT THAT BREED SHOULD LOOK LIKE.

THAT'S BREED TYPE.

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN IRISH SETTER

AND A YORKSHIRE TERRIER?

BREED TYPE.

NICOLE: OR LIKE WE WERE SAYING IRISH SETTER OR GORDON SETTER?

STAN: CORRECT, BREED TYPE.

AND THIS IS REALLY DECENT BREED TYPE.

SHE HAS GOT QUITE A FEW NICE DOGS.

AND YOU COULD SEE JUST BY HER SENDING IN THE VIDEOS THAT SHE

JUST DOESN'T DO ONE THING.

SHE IS MULTIFACETED WHICH IS WHAT UKC LOVES.

NICOLE: ALL TOTAL DOGS.

STAN: AND HERE IS THE GERMAN SHEPHERD.

AND NOTE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BREED TYPE OF

THIS DOG IN MAKE AND SHAPE, AND THE WHITE SHEPHERD.

NICOLE: YES.

STAN: SO IF YOU HELD A SHEET IN FRONT OF THAT DOG AND,

AND PUT A SPOTLIGHT BEHIND, JUST BY SILHOUETTE ALONE YOU

SHOULD BE ABLE TO DETERMINE WHETHER IT'S A GERMAN SHEPHERD

OR A WHITE SHEPHERD.

AND SEE WHAT I MEAN?

HOW IT'S A LITTLE LOWER, LITTLE MORE SLINKIER,

A LITTLE MORE ANGLED.

NICOLE: MM-HMM.

YEP, THIS IS GERMAN SHEPHERD 628.

ALTA-TOLLHAUS VIKTOR OWNED BY PAMELA PADGETT

OF ARIZONA.

VIKTOR PARTICIPATES IN RALLY OBEDIENCE.

STAN: THESE ARE SUCH SMART DOGS.

NICOLE: YEAH, WE, WE WERE SAYING, YOU KNOW,

LIKE PROTECTION WORK, HE, VIKTOR HAS AN IPO3 TITLE.

BUT IS ALSO A THERAPY DOG AND ATTENDS CHURCH

WITH ME EACH WEEK.

IF ONLY--

[LAUGHS]

PAMELA SAYS IF ONLY EVERYONE, IF ONLY EVERYONE DID THINGS

WITH THIS DOG'S LEVEL OF ENTHUSIASM.

STAN: OH YES.

[LAUGHS]

DOG SHOW PEOPLE WE MAKE FUN OF ALL THE TIME BECAUSE

THEY'RE NOT WHAT WE CALL ACTIVE CHURCH-GOERS,

BECAUSE THERE IS ALWAYS A DOG SHOW ON SUNDAY.

[LAUGHS]

SO I THINK THIS DOG PROBABLY OUT TRUMPS MOST DOG SHOW

PEOPLE BY GOING TO CHURCH.

NICOLE: PROBABLY.

STAN: BUT YOU CAN SEE THE KEENNESS, THE INTELLIGENCE.

SEE HOW THAT DOG IS JUST THINKING?

AND IT, IT JUST YAWNED, BUT IT'S THINKING.

NICOLE: ALL RIGHT, WE NOW HAVE GERMAN SHEPHERD 629,

BEAR BERLIN DORA VON PEREZ.

BEAR IS OWNED BY BERNICE PEREZ OF BROOKFIELD, ILLINOIS.

♪♪♪

AND BERNICE SAID THAT BEAR IS A VERY ACTIVE DOG WHO

LOVES TO PLAY BALL ALL DAY.

HE ENJOYS WORKING WITH HIS BITE SLEEVE,

BUT ALSO ENJOYS RALLY, AND OBEDIENCE WORK.

HE HAS TRIED LURE COURSING AND HE ENJOYS THAT AS WELL.

SO BITE SLEEVE?

STAN: BITE SLEEVE.

IN PROTECTION THEY TEACH DOGS WHEN THE BAD GUY COMES UP THE

TRAINER OR THE PERSON HAS A SLEEVE OR A SUIT THAT THE DOG

CAN ACTUALLY BITE WITHOUT INJURING THAT PERSON.

AND THEY TRAIN THE DOG TO DO THAT, THAT'S CALL BITE WORK.

AND WHAT'S INTERESTING, EVEN WHEN YOU PLAY WITH

A GERMAN SHEPHERD AND YOU'RE PLAYING BALL,

AND THE DOG TAKES THE BALL, YOU CAN SEE,

OR I CAN TELL BY THE BREED THE DIFFERENT TENSION THAT THE

DOG PUTS ON YOU IN GETTING THE BALL AND THE BITE.

AND THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A GERMAN SHEPHERD

AND SAY A GOLDEN RETRIEVER.

NICOLE: RIGHT.

AND WE WERE TALKING ABOUT BITE,

POINTS OF CONTACT AND THINGS LIKE THAT.

THOSE RETRIEVERS A LOT OF TIMES PEOPLE WILL SAY, OH,

THEY HAVE A SOFT MOUTH AND IT'S FOR THAT REASON.

STAN: AND THEY TRAIN THEM, THEY TRAIN THEM WITH EGGS.

THEY TAKE A RAW EGG AND ROLL IT ON THE GROUND,

THE DOG SHOULD BE ABLE TO PICK IT UP AND BRING IT

BACK TO THE OWNER.

AND WHEN THEY FIELD HUNT THOSE RETRIEVERS,

THEY DON'T WANT THE DOGS TO PUNCTURE THE BIRD.

THAT'S WHY THEY HAVE WHAT THEY CALL THE SOFT MOUTH.

NICOLE: SOFT MOUTH.

ALL RIGHT, MOVING ON WE HAVE CATAHOULA LEOPARD DOG

SISU'S TREKKER.

TREK IS OWNED BY AMANDA TEACON FROM SPRING LAKE, MICHIGAN.

STAN: AND AGAIN NOTICE ANY COLOR.

NICOLE: ANY COLOR FOR THESE CATAHOULAS.

STAN: ANY, ANY, ANY COLOR.

NICOLE: MERLE IS A, A POPULAR ONE, BUT IT DOESN'T,

IT REALLY DOESN'T MATTER.

STAN: AND IT'S NOT ALL MERLE, LOOK AT THE BODY.

NICOLE: MM-HMM.

AMANDA, TREK'S OWNER--

STAN: LOOK AT HOW CUTE THAT IS.

[LAUGHS]

NICOLE: LITTLE HEAD TILT.

STAN: YEAH, WITH THE EARS.

[LAUGHS]

NICOLE: BUT SHE PARTICIPATES IN A NUMBER OF UKC ACTIVITIES.

SHE IS A BIG UKC SUPPORTER.

SHE DOES A LOT OF WEIGHT PULL.

SO THIS DOG, AND I THINK MAYBE ALL OF THE DOGS THAT

SHE ENTERED, SHE ENTERED A COUPLE OF DOGS.

STAN: DO THEY PULL WEIGHT?

NICOLE: MM-HMM, THEY DO WEIGHT PULL.

STAN: THIS IS JUST A GREAT, GREAT DOG.

THEY DO A LOT OF THINGS FOR THEIR OWNERS.

NICOLE: YEAH AND SHE SAID THAT TREK WAS THE TOP PULLING

CATAHOULA AS RANKED BY THE UNITED LCLD CLUB.

STAN: WOW.

NICOLE: FOR 2018 AND 2019.

AGAIN ANOTHER LOUISIANA CATAHOULA LEOPARD DOG OR

PEOPLE OFTEN SAY CATAHOULA.

J CROSS HALO.

HALO AGAIN OWNED BY AMANDA TEACON OF

SPRING LAKE, MICHIGAN.

STAN: AND NOTICE THE BLUE EYES ON THIS DOG.

NICOLE: YEAH, IS THAT BECAUSE OF THE MERLE COLORING?

STAN: PROBABLY.

NICOLE: JUST LIKE PLACES WHERE PIGMENT, PIGMENT ISN'T THERE.

DRAMA WAS THE NUMBER FOUR UKC CATAHOULA IN 2017 AND

WON TOP 10 BEST OF BREED.

HER SIRE WON TOP 10 BEST OF BREED FOR DOGS

RANKED IN 20-- 2009.

THIS IS THE SECOND PARENT OFFSPRING IN THE BREED,

AND THE FIRST FATHER DAUGHTER TO DO THIS.

STAN: WOW.

SEE AGAIN IT SHOWS THAT UKC PEOPLE THEY TEND TO DO MORE

THAN JUST SHOWING THEIR DOG IN CONFORMATION.

THEY DO EVERYTHING AND I THINK THAT'S JUST SO WONDERFUL,

BECAUSE THE DOG IS ACTIVELY WORKING WITH THE OWNER.

NICOLE: AND WE'RE SAYING DOING EVERYTHING LIKE THIS TOTAL DOG

PHILOSOPHY, DOGS THAT DO MORE.

ANY COLOR.

THIS IS ALSO A CATAHOULA.

STAN: RIGHT.

NICOLE: THIS IS J CROSS WARRIOR RIVER BALDR.

BALDR OWNED BY AMANDA TEACON.

STAN: SO AGAIN IT LOOKS LIKE SHE IS OWNED,

SHE OWNS SEVERAL OF THESE DOGS.

AND FOR HER TO DO WHAT SHE IS DOING,

THAT'S A LOT OF TIME AND EFFORT.

I MEAN SHE IS NOT JUST SHOWING THREE, OR FIVE,

OR SIX DOGS IN CONFORMATION.

SHE IS DOING ALL OTHER ACTIVITIES AS WELL

TO MAKE THE TOTAL DOG.

SO THAT'S A LOT OF TIME SHE IS PUTTING IN TEACHING THESE

DOGS, WORKING WITH THESE DOGS.

AND YOU, YOU, YOU DO IT DAILY.

NICOLE: I MISSPOKE THOUGH, THIS ONE IS HALO.

STAN: OH.

NICOLE: THIS IS J CROSS HALO.

STAN: BUT IT'S THE SAME OWNER.

NICOLE: SAME OWNER, AMANDA TEACON.

STAN: YEAH.

AND LOOK AT HOW HAPPY THEY ARE, THEY'RE ALL HAPPY.

NICOLE: YEAH, IT'S A LOT OF PRACTICE, A LOT OF WORK.

STAN: IT'S JUST A LOT, HERE, LOOK.

NICOLE: THIS IS BALDR.

STAN: OKAY.

NICOLE: WARRIOR RIVER BALDR OWNED BY AMANDA TEACON.

SPRING LAKE, MICHIGAN.

♪♪♪

BUT YEAH, MY GOODNESS, CAN YOU IMAGINE THE AMOUNT OF TIME IT

TOOK FOR HER TO TAKE ALL OF THESE VIDEOS OF HER DOGS?

STAN: JUST DOING THIS AND THEN--

NICOLE: AND WEIGHT PULL.

STAN: ABSOLUTELY.

AND YOU DON'T JUST TAKE YOUR DOG OUT,

AND HOOK THEM TO A HARNESS, AND MAKE THEM PULL WEIGHTS.

YOU HAVE TO TRAIN THE DOG TO DO THAT.

THEY HAVE TO GET USED TO THAT HARNESS FIRST OF ALL.

BECAUSE IF YOU PUT A HARNESS ON A NORMAL DOG,

HE'LL STOP AND FREEZE, IT WON'T WANT TO WALK.

NICOLE: WELL, ONCE THEY START WALKING,

AND THEN THEY FEEL THAT WEIGHT, THEY ARE LIKE OH,

IT'S TIME TO SIT.

STAN: ABSOLUTELY, I'M NOT WORKING.

SO IT'S ONE, IT'S GREAT, IT'S JUST GREAT, I CAN'T TELL YOU.

THAT'S ONE OF THE THINGS THAT ATTRACTED ME TO UKC.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN OTHER REGISTRIES AND UKC,

THE TOTAL DOG.

NICOLE: ABSOLUTELY.

SO THIS--

STAN: HERE'S ANOTHER WHITE SHEPHERD.

NICOLE: THIS IS A WHITE GERMAN SHEPHERD.

STAN: OKAY.

NICOLE: SO THAT'S WHAT WE WERE SAYING, YOU KNOW,

THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THOSE.

THIS IS WHITE STARS NIRVANA AT ATLAS ZEN OWNED BY

TRACIE KARSJENS OF ROGERS, MINNESOTA.

STAN: OH, I KNOW TRACIE.

NICOLE: TRACIE IS A UKC JUDGE.

STAN: YES.

NOTICE THE ANGLE, IT'S A LITTLE MORE EXTREME

THAN THE WHITE SHEPHERD.

NICOLE: YEAH, A BIT MORE ANGULATION.

STAN: YES.

AND THEY EVEN TRACK DIFFERENT, THEY EVEN RUN DIFFERENT.

THEY RUN MORE IN A SLINKIER MOTION THAN A WHITE SHEPHERD.

A WHITE SHEPHERD BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF ANGLES THAT THE

WHITE GERMAN SHEPHERD HAS, THEY MOVE IN A DIFFERENT

PLANE TO SO SPEAK.

NICOLE: MM-HMM.

YEAH, THEY KIND OF CROUCH A LITTLE BIT IS WHAT YOU'RE--

STAN: RIGHT! NICOLE: TRYING TO SAY.

STAN: SLINKY.

I ALWAYS REFER TO GERMAN SHEPHERD AS SLINKY.

NICOLE: SLINKY, SLINKY.

STAN: BECAUSE THEY'RE A LITTLE LOWER TO THE GROUND,

BECAUSE OF THE ANGLE, LOOK AT THE ANGLE!

NICOLE: SO THIS DOG ZEN, VIDEO OF ZEN FOR PERFORMANCE

IS DOCK JUMPING.

BUT SHE ALSO COMPETES IN AGILITY AS WELL.

STAN: I BET IT WOULD MAKE A WONDERFUL AGILITY DOG.

NICOLE: LIKE YOU SAID GETTING, BEING ABLE

TO MOVE AT A LOW ANGLE--

STAN: RIGHT.

NICOLE: IT HELPS THEM TURN CORNERS FASTER.

STAN: NOW HERE IS A GERMAN SHEPHERD.

JUST PAINT IT WHITE AND YOU HAVE THE DOG BEFORE.

NICOLE: THIS IS, THIS IS BLISS, ATLAS BLISSFUL FEELING.

GERMAN SHEPHERD OWNED BY TRACIE KARSJENS

OF ROGERS, MICHIGAN.

BLISS WAS THE ONLY GIRL IN HER LITTER AND STILL THINKS

SHE IS THE NUMBER-ONE GIRL AROUND THE HOUSE.

SHE IS FOURTH GENERATION OF UKC TOP 10 GSD'S.

SHE IS THE HAPPIEST PLAYING FRISBEE.

SHE HAS TITLES IN AGILITY, RALLY, OBEDIENCE,

DOCK JUMPING, STUNT DOG, AND TRICK DOG, AND MORE.

STAN: AND HERE SHE IS BAITING HER DOG

TO SHOW THE ATTENTIVENESS.

♪♪♪

NICOLE: I LOVE WHEN THIS DOG MOVES, IT'S JUST,

IT WAGS ITS TAIL SO BIG WHEN IT'S GOING.

STAN: AND IT JUST FLOWS.

FLUID MOTION.

NICOLE: PRETTY HEAD, YOU CAN TELL THAT IT'S A,

IT'S A FEMALE WHEN YOU LOOK AT HER.

STAN: MM-HMM, MM-HMM.

NICOLE: AND YOU CAN ALSO TELL THAT SHE

LIKES THE ATTENTION.

STAN: OH YEAH.

NICOLE: SHE IS, SHE IS, SHE IS,

SHE IS WORKING THAT CAMERA.

STAN: ABSOLUTELY.

[LAUGHS]

MOUTH, FRONT INCISORS.

SIDES.

FULL DENTITION.

AND THE OTHER SIDE.

NICOLE: ANOTHER ONE OF AMERICA'S POPULAR BREEDS.

STAN: YES.

NICOLE: GSD.

IF YOU HAVE ONE AT HOME, TAKE A PICTURE,

#UKCVIRTUALPREMIER.

STAN: WE WOULD LOVE TO SEE THEM.

NICOLE: FACEBOOK AND INSTAGRAM.

WE HAVE WHITE SHEPHERD 636.

HOOFPRINT INFERNO, TORCH OWNED BY ERIN BRI SWEENEY

OF ONTARIO, CANADA.

AGAIN IT IS SO COOL TO SEE ALL OF THE PLACES THAT PEOPLE WERE

SENDING THEIR VIDEOS FROM.

STAN: I WAS JUST GOING TO SAY THAT.

IT'S SO INTERESTING TO SEE THE QUOTE UNQUOTE FOREIGN DOGS.

WE JUST DIDN'T HAVE DOGS FROM THE U.S.

WE HAD DOGS FROM ALL OVER THE COUNTRY, ALL OVER THE BORDERS.

NICOLE: ALL OVER THE WORLD.

STAN: YES.

NICOLE: WE HAVE SOME DOGS FROM FINLAND COMING UP

IN THE NEXT GROUP.

BUT THIS IS TORCH.

THE OWNER SAYS TORCH BRINGS A ZEST FOR LIFE

EVERYWHERE HE GOES.

HE IS ALWAYS UP FOR THE CHANCE TO HAVE THE ZOOMIES.

[LAUGHS]

HE TRIES TO BRING THE BIGGEST STICK HOME FROM

THE TRAILS EVERY TIME.

STAN: I'M SURE.

IT'S FUNNY TO WATCH DOGS THAT CARRY STICKS,

AND SOMETIMES THE STICK IS LARGER THAN A DOG.

AND THEY TRY TO GET THROUGH A GATE AND THEY GET STUCK.

[LAUGHS]

NICOLE: I ALWAYS LOVE IT WHEN YOU'RE AT A DOG SHOW

AND THERE IS A DOG THAT'S CARRYING ITS RIBBON

AROUND IN ITS MOUTH.

STAN: OH YEAH, YEAH.

NICOLE: SO FUNNY.

STAN: ESPECIALLY THE GROUP RIBBON WITH THE BIG ROSETTES.

NICOLE: OH YEAH, YEAH, YEAH, IT'S SO FUN.

STAN: AND THEY'RE SMILING.

NICOLE: THEY KNOW THEY DID A GOOD JOB.

PRETTY FREE STACK.

STAN: YEAH, WALKED-- NICOLE: RIGHT INTO THAT.

STAN: RIGHT INTO THAT.

SO THAT DOESN'T COME NATURALLY,

YOU HAVE TO TRAIN YOUR DOG TO DO THAT.

OBVIOUSLY THERE HAS BEEN TIME AND EFFORT PUT IN THIS DOG.

NICOLE: MM-HMM.

ALL RIGHT WE HAVE CATAHOULA TASSOS CRY ME A RIVER.

RIVER IS OWNED BY BETHANIE SANDERS OF TRACY, CALIFORNIA.

RIVER LOVES THE WATER, ENJOYS PLAYING

IN THE SPRINKLERS.

SHE IS A TYPICAL CATAHOULA, LOVES TO HUNT,

TREE SQUIRRELS AND RACCOONS.

I LOVE TAKING HER TO OUR NATIONAL BREED CLUB

TRIALS IN LOUISIANA.

BETHANIE DOES SUCH A GOOD JOB WITH HER CATAHOULAS.

SHE, SHE AND HER MOM, THEY, THEY'VE HAD

CATAHOULAS FOR A WHILE.

AND--

AND BETHANIE IS JUST A REALLY GREAT PATIENT

HANDLER WITH HER DOGS.

STAN: SHE LOVES HER DOGS AND HER DOGS ARE

SO VERY IN-TUNE TO HER.

IT'S ALWAYS A PLEASURE TO SEE HER AT A DOG SHOW.

NICOLE: ALWAYS BIG SMILES FROM, FROM BETHANIE.

STAN: AND SHE ALWAYS HAS TO COME OVER AND SAY HI,

WHICH IS ALWAYS NICE.

NICOLE: I LOVE IT WHEN PEOPLE COME SAY HI.

MAN, OUT IN CALIFORNIA.

I COULD BE OUT UNDER THOSE SUNNY PALM TREES.

[LAUGHS]

STAN: GO RIGHT OUTSIDE.

[LAUGHS]

LOOK AT THE EXPRESSION.

NICOLE: BEAUTIFUL HEAD AND EXPRESSION, YES.

SHE PUT THAT, GOT HIS EARS UP.

OR HER EARS, I'M SORRY.

STAN: AND INTERESTINGLY ENOUGH LOOK AT THE MARKINGS

ON THAT DOG, WHICH ONLY ENHANCES THE QUALITY OF THIS DOG,

AND THE MAKE AND SHAPE.

THE WHITE ACCENTUATES THE LENGTH OF NECK.

NICOLE: THE LONG NECK, YEAH EXACTLY.

I THINK THE--

STAN: THE ANGLE IN THE SHOULDER.

NICOLE: I THINK THE REAR TOO.

STAN: YES AND THE, THE WAY THE REAR IS SOLID.

NICOLE: MM-HMM.

STAN: PRETTY FREE STACK.

NICOLE: REALLY PRETTY.

NOKO PARTICIPATES IN RALLY OBEDIENCE.

IT'S PROBABLY WHERE-- STAN: PRETTY STACK THERE.

NICOLE: WHERE HE TRAINS. STAN: LOOK AT THAT.

AND, FOLKS, I MEAN YOU COULD TELL WHERE THE OWNERS

ACTUALLY WORKED WITH THESE DOGS.

I MEAN THEY JUST DON'T DO THIS.

THEY DON'T COME OUT OF THE BUN DOING THIS,

THE OVEN DOING THIS.

THEY'RE ACTUALLY TRAINED TO DO THIS.

THAT'S VERY PRETTY.

NICOLE: I LOVE HOW SHINY THAT COAT IS.

STAN: YES.

NICOLE: I WONDER WHAT THEY FEED THE DOG.

[LAUGHS]

STAN: PROBABLY EUKANUBA.

♪♪♪

THAT IS VERY SHINY.

NICOLE: I KNOW, IT IS A REALLY SHINY COAT.

STAN: IT'S LIKE SHOE POLISH SHINY.

NICOLE: OH, WAIT, WHERE DID THEY GO?

WHERE ARE WE AT?

STAN: OH, OH.

NICOLE: OKAY, HERE WE GO.

BACK ON THE DOWN AND BACK.

SHE DOES WHAT I DO.

NORMALLY FOR MY DOWN AND BACK,

I TRY TO GO REALLY SLOW BECAUSE MY DOGS LIKE TO

GO IN ALL, ALL DIRECTIONS.

STAN: FAST ISN'T ALWAYS GOOD.

[LAUGHS]

NICOLE: ALL ABOUT CONTROL WITH THOSE DOWN AND BACKS.

STAN: THAT'S A VERY LOVELY CONDITIONED DOG.

- I DON'T KNOW HOW MANY, HOLD ON.

NICOLE: BY CONDITION YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT

THE MUSCLING, WEIGHT, COAT.

STAN: EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING IS COUNTED IN ON THAT.

♪♪♪

NICOLE: OKAY, WE NOW HAVE BORDER COLLIE LOOK AT,

ACE IS A UKC CONFORMATION GRAND CHAMPION.

WEIGHT PULL CHAMPION, EXCELLENT.

HAS TWO UKC CHAMPIONSHIPS IN DOCK JUMPING,

AND ALSO HAS TITLES IN AGILITY, OBEDIENCE,

RALLY, LURE COURSING, AND PRECISION COURSING.

STAN: REMARKABLE.

BUT THESE ARE EASY TRAINABLE DOGS,

YOU JUST HAVE TO PUT THE TIME INTO TRAINING THEM.

NICOLE: I'VE SEEN, I'VE SEEN CHRISTIE WORKING WITH HER

BORDER COLLIES A LOT IN OUR UKC MAJOR EVENTS.

STAN: YEAH.

NICOLE: ALWAYS GOING FOR THAT TOTAL DOG.

PROVE THAT HER DOG CAN, CAN, YOU KNOW,

BE IN THAT CONFORMATION RING, AND BE OUT IN THESE

PERFORMANCE EVENTS.

STAN: JUST NOT ANOTHER PRETTY FACE.

[LAUGHS]

NICOLE: SEE THE ATTENTION THAT BORDER COLLIE GIVES HER?

STAN: VERY INTENSE.

NICOLE: HUGE ENTRY.

STAN: SO LET'S CHECK IN WITH TRACY AND SEE

WHAT SHE'S CHOSEN.

TRACY: WOW, THE HERDING GROUP WAS HUGE.

LOTS OF BEAUTIFUL DOGS, STRONG CONTENDERS IN THIS GROUP.

THE GROUP ONE FOR ME WENT TO NUMBER 637 THE CATAHOULA.

GROUP TWO 609 PEMBROKE WELSH CORGI.

GROUP THREE 612 THE WHITE SHEPHERD.

AND THE CARDIGAN WELSH CORGI WAS THE GROUP FOUR.

SO OUR CATAHOULA BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL BITCH.

MODERATE, SHE WASN'T HOUNDY, OR BULLDOGGY IN ANY WAY.

SHE WAS SLIGHTLY LONGER THAN TALL.

HER RIGHT DIMENSIONS FOR HER ELBOW TO THE GROUND VERSUS

THE WITHER TO THE GROUND WHICH THE ELBOW TO THE

GROUND SHOULD BE ABOUT 50 TO 60 PERCENT

OF THE HEIGHT OF THE WITHER TO THE GROUND.

VERY CORRECT IN, IN HER STRUCTURE, AND HER BUILD.

HER HEAD IS POWERFUL, IT LAGGED EXAGGERATION

WHICH IS A GOOD THING.

SHE HAD BEAUTIFUL PIERCING BLUE EYES,

ALTHOUGH EYE COLOR IS EQUALLY ACCEPTABLE IN,

IN ANY COLOR IN THIS BREED.

HER GAIT WAS SMOOTH, FLUID, EFFORTLESS.

SHE WAS BALANCED, HER REACH, SHE HAD ADEQUATE

REACH AND DRIVE.

NEITHER WERE EXAGGERATED IN ANY WAY.

HER DOWN AND BACK WAS VERY CLEAN,

SHE HAD NO TURNING OF THE LEGS IN OR OUT, NO CROSSING OVER,

NO INTERFERENCE OF MOVEMENT.

SHE WAS OVERALL JUST A REALLY SMOOTH,

WELL PUT TOGETHER BITCH.

AND I WAS HONORED TO JUDGE THE HERDING GROUP,

LOTS OF GORGEOUS DOGS.

BUT AGAIN GROUP ONE WENT TO 637 CATAHOULA.

NICOLE: CONGRATULATIONS TO RIVER AND BETHANIE SANDERS

OF CALIFORNIA.

SHE IS SO NICE.

I, I LOVE BETHANIE AND I'M GLAD TO SEE HER WIN.

STAN: AND HER CATAHOULA IS GOING ON TO OUR

BEST IN SHOW TOTAL DOG.

NICOLE: YES AND DON'T FORGET THAT ALL OF OUR PLACEMENT

WINNERS TODAY ARE GOING TO RECEIVE A PRIZE

PACKAGE FROM EUKANUBA.

WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK EUKANUBA FOR BEING

OUR PERFORMANCE DOG NUTRITION PARTNER.

SPORTING DOGS GIVE US EVERYTHING
