76 – Bo Bengtson and Paul Lepiane: History and Future of Dog Show Competition
Bo Bengtson and Paul Lepiane: The History and the Future of Dog Show Competition
Paul and Bo, whippet breeders and publishers of several magazines, share their thoughts on breed drift and the past, present and future of dog shows in this wide ranging, thoughtful interview.
We discuss why some breeds drift *a lot* and others it’s barely noticeable. Bo shares ideas he focused on while authoring the book, Best in Show: The World of Show Dogs and Dog Shows.
Primarily that history informs the current day and helps us understand our world.
