CENMAS is holding a Specialty in December at Eukanuba!
and SEMASC a new club forming!
We are in the process of organizing an affiliate club for MAS fanciers in the NC, SC, GA & FL area. We chose these states based on population and the possibility of enough working members from this area and trying not to infringe on areas where others may want to form another club. More clubs mean more opportunity for sponsorship of shows and educational programs to benefit all.
According to AKC, we will need to keep a smaller core group but this, in no way, is meant to exclude anyone who would like to be a part of our organization. Our tentative name will be SouthEastern Miniature American Shepherd Club, subject to vote by the charter members. So come, get on board now and be part of the initial organization.
Please let Lisa Grose at email@example.com know and she will send you an application for membership. We will then add you to our discussion forum (fancy word for list). No dues are required until we, as a group, vote on our bylaws and what we feel is needed.
Shirley Shannon, Acting President
Lisa Grose, Secretary

**** IMPULSE CONTROL ****
Denzi Dog Sports Academy
Love this article from August 20th!
QUOTE from the author...."For a trainer who wants to use positive reinforcement techiques (R+), developing internal self control in exchange for access to motivators is absolutely essential, especially when the sport you are interested in allows the dog to be self reinforced even when they are uncooperative. Herding, field work and protection all come to mind - the dog works at a distance from the handler; normally off leash and close to the thing they want (decoy, birds or sheep). They can easily ignore the handler and still be gratified by whatever it is that they wanted. Use of artificial aids such as leashes or compulsive devices such as e-collars work great - when the dog is wearing them. I'm not interested in controlling her; I need her to control herself."

The Miniature American Shepherd has been accepted into CDHPR (UKC!!)
The Miniature American Shepherd has been accepted into the Canine Developmental Health and Performance Registry (CDHPR) with UKC. This is the first step in seeking full recognition with UKC! In order to receive full recognition, our breed will need to show growth and have litters registered with CDHPR. There is not a time frame on when we will receive full recognition, but I am hoping that we can show them what a strong breed we are as we move forward!
At this time, we are to begin registering our dogs with them. I will be submitting the initial electronic database as well as a written one to CDHPR. This is your chance to get your dogs registered at an affordable price!! Cost is $5.00 per dog being registered with the initial database. After that time, you will submit all applications to CDHPR directly and the fee will be $35 per dog.
DEADLINE EXTENDED TILL OCT 15TH
Any questions, please do not hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I think that the Working Aussie Source is one of the best locations on the net to find herding trials and clinics!
