The breed columns are a time-honored feature of the AKC Gazette, the American Kennel Club’s official monthly publication. Columnists are appointed by the breed’s national parent club and asked to write about topics of interest to serious dog fanciers in general, as well as topics of specific interest to judges and devotees of the breed. Breed columns rotate quarterly by group so that each breed’s column appears four times a year. The information and opinions expressed in the breed columns represent the views of their authors, not necessarily those of the breed’s parent club.
The year and month that each column first appeared in the AKC Gazette is indicated with the title, and is reproduced here with permission. To read or download the Gazette, visit akc.org/pubs/gazette
