The online seminar that follows was originally written for the Judges-L list as part of their ongoing educational seminars for judges. The seminar has be edited for this site and is reproduced here with the kind permission of Karin Ashe of Judges-L, who also helped arrange the material for this site. The seminar was conceived with the idea that a discussion of the AKC Standard and comments from breeders would help elucidate the standard for those interested in the breed.
