I’d like to start off by thinking all of our sponsors and vendors for making this a great 2021 convention. I believe this is the most

the Prez Sez

successful educational conference that we’ve had as far as sponsors and vendors. We had a few hiccups–mainly our zoom calls, which I believe was largely due to the metal building–but other than that everything was very successful. We have begun working on the conference for 2022 to try to improve over this year. I want to thank all the members and visitors who come out to support it. Without you, we don’t have a conference. Hopefully we can keep showing the huge support that was shown at the conference moving forward. We also had members asking about starting some new chapters, so let’s hope that they can get that accomplished! Let’s work together and try to make 2022 one of our best years. Thank you!

Kevin Beauchamp, MPBA President

from your Publicity Director

“Yesterday is history, Tomorrow is a mystery, Today is a gift, That’s why it’s called The Present.”

Please work in the present to make the 2022 MPBA Conference even better than 2021,

and make sure it is not a mystery.

Study: Dogs Can Detect Coronavirus in Human Sweat By Ethen Kim Lieser | December 14, 2020

Although the study was limited and the results preliminary, there is promising evidence that suggests these dogs could, in fact, be a cheap and reliable way to screen for the coronavirus. Several dogs have been successfully trained to detect the coronavirus by sniffing human sweat, according to a new proof-of-concept study out of France and Lebanon.

considered a perfect diagnostic test – rather a complementary tool, the authors wrote. Other countries have already begun utilizing the special skillsets of dogs. In Finland, a group of sniffer dogs trained to detect coronavirus started working at Helsinki Airport in September, and in Chile, police dogs have been trained to sniff out coronavirus in humans. In the United

In the research, which was published in the journal PLOS One, sweat samples from a total of 177 patients from four hospitals in Paris and one in Beirut were used. Among the participants, ninety-five had tested positive for the virus, while eighty-two were negative. What the researchers were eventually able to accomplish was that they trained six dogs to pick up the specific smell of patients who

After weeks of training, some dogs had a success rate of 76 percent, while others boasted perfect scores. “These results provide some evidence that detection dogs may be able to discriminate between sweat samples from symptomatic COVID-19 individuals and those from asymptomatic COVID-19 negative individuals,” the study’s authors wrote. The researchers, however, admitted that the study was limited and the results preliminary—but the promising evidence suggests that these dogs could, in fact, be a cheap and reliable way to screen for the coronavirus. “Even if trained dogs are able to correctly discriminate symptomatic COVID-19 positive individuals from asymptomatic negative ones, they should not be

2020 FFA Speaking Contest WINNER’S SPEECH

“My Love for Labs” by Kacey Williams | Silex FFA Chapter

breeders face struggles everyday, from the misinformed public, to regulations constantly changing, and animal rights organizations working against Missouri pet breeders. I have realized how hard it can be to stay motivated, and be successful within this industry. Most of society hears the word dog breeder, and just assumes that this is a job where you feed a couple dogs twice a day. This statement could not be less false, because dog breeders face the struggles of everything from genetic testing, to maintaining medical records, all the way to reading pedigrees, while interpreting that data. Society is also led to believe that dog breeders are in this industry only for the money. When dog breeders spend money on genetic testing, show fees, and puppy supplies, while supporting their own family, investments within this business are vast. The time commitment it takes to socialize puppies, train parents and communicate with their customers is a huge investment that pet breeders make daily. Fortunately, this commitment builds bonds with their animals and customers. While these misconceptions exist across America, Missouri gets a particularly poor reputation. We are labeled the “puppy mill” state. A puppy mill is a derogatory term that associates owners who mistreat their animals, having dogs bred their entire lives until they are incapable of breeding anymore.This termis very wrong, because across Missouri we follow regulations that ensure dogs have a healthy time to recover after breeding, live with humane and healthy conditions and have stress reduced from their environment. Animal rights organizations, such as PETA and HSUS, havemademultiple claims about the pet breeding industry, such as we are adding to overpopulation, sacrificing animal health, and claim there is no such thing as a responsible pet breeder. These are huge generalizations and accusations. Every year, over 20 billion dollars are spent on veterinary expenses to ensure the health of these animals. Reputable pet

All of my life, I have wanted one thing: a Labrador retriever. ALab is the perfect dog for hunting, as well as givingpuppykisses andplaying fetch.Upuntil last year, I woulddaydreamaboutwhat color of Lab Iwould choose, which gender is best for me and how I would train it. Luckily for me, I live just three miles away from a pet breeding business, and my friend happens to own it. Tender Heart Kennels specializes in raising Labradors that are structurally correct, athletic and ready to be your next best friend. One day, while I was visiting Tender Heart Kennels, I noticed one of my favorite dogs was nearing having a litter of puppies. Little did I know how much this would spark my interest in the animal part of pet breeding. As the days went on, I watched this female getting closer and closer to having her puppies and transforming her body and behaviors to ready herself. At long last, I got a call from my friend that the soon-to-be mother was nesting in her whelping box. I rushed over to Tender Heart Kennels so I could watch the process. After a lot of work, she had eight puppies total! When the chocolate lab first gave birth to the puppies, all of them were close to the same size. I would go and check on them everyday. However, on one particularly cold morning, I noticed one of the puppies was not growing as fast as the others. During this time, the puppies were eight weeks old which meant they were old enough to sell and leave their mother. The next day, I went to my mom and asked her if I could get the runt, a chocolate lab. When she agreed, I was so excited, but also concerned, because I knew I would be taught responsibility through this experience, and have a new member of the family. I was overwhelmed with joy and I couldn’t wait to begin this new experience in my life! Throughout the opportunity to spend time at Tender Heart Kennels, I have learned all about responsibility, work ethic, and have become educated on the ups and downs of the pet breeding industry.

breeders have medical records of each and every puppy that they raise, and most even offer health guarantees with their animals. This goes to show how much our pet breeders care about their animals. While helping at Tender Heart Kennels, I can attest that they give their animals 2-3 checkups per year, and checked on the dogs every single day, while making sure the dogs had everything they needed to maintain proper health. Laws and regulations are set for pet breeders to follow. Some of these regulations include that the animals must have clean water every eight hours, and that the housing the dogs are in are kept clean and sanitary. These seem like common sense to us, but when you are against pet breeding, people can easily try to make problems as small as a mustard seed seem like they are huge issues. Animal rights organizations can see a single piece of dog food in a dog’s water and claim that the water is not clean, and the dog breeders can suffer serious fines or even time in jail. Many people will claim dog breeders are cruel, ruthless, and careless for the animals. While helping out with Tender Heart Kennels, I have learned this is far from the truth. Everyday we go out and care for the animals, and make

sure they get the love they need. I can say the hardest part of helping out dog breeders is when you have to sell them after you have gotten so attached to them. Despitethechallengesthathavearisen, thepet industry is growing and constantly improving. Americans spent a record breaking $56 billion dollars on pets last year. With pet sales skyrocketing during the pandemic, it is projected that the industry will be worth $100 billion dollars in 2020. To keep this upward .trend continuing, pet breeders have to be conscious of the challenges that this industry faces. If we are being honest, pet breeders are always going to have to deal with new regulations and laws and animal rights activists working against pet breeders. There will always be a portion of the public who is misinformed. This doesn’t change the fact that we can strive to overcome those big issues, so that pet breeders can focus on what they do best. The best way that we can accomplish this is by promoting the pet breeding industry and experiences. From posting pictures of their facilities on Instagram, to talking to prospective customers about how they raise puppies, to sharing these animals’ stories of finding their forever homes, we can make a difference.

steps tO PREVENT PREGNANCY PROBLEMS

in Bitches

theriogenology resident, advise breeders on steps to help prevent pregnancy problems. One clinical observation they have made is how easily bitches in prime fitness and optimal body condition whelp their litters. “it is the couch potato bitches that often get into trouble,” Dr. cecere says. Reflecting on best practices for dog breeders, they offer their perspectives on how breeders can help things go smoothly Although nothing is guaranteed with dog breeding and delivering puppies, these guidelines provide worthy considerations.

experienced breeders understand the importance of ensuring that a bitch is a good candidate for breeding. no pregnancy is the same, thus the importance of evaluating a bitch’s physical and nutritional status prior to breeding. it also helps to partner with a veterinarian to guide you through all facets of breeding, pregnancy and delivery. Veterinarians who specialize in reproduction, neonatology and genetic diseases are known as theriogenologists. At Virginia-Maryland college of Veterinary Medicine, Julie t. cecere, DVM, Ms, DcAt, clinical associate professor of theriogenology, and Alyssa helms, DVM, third-year

TIPS ON BREEDING BITCHES • For most breeds, a bitch is not developmentally or physically mature to be bred until she is around 2 years of age, though toy and small breeds may reach maturity as early as 18 months of age • Most breeds are considered senior dogs at age 7, which corresponds with a decline in fertility and increased risk for health conditions and comor- bidities that could negatively affect their ability to carry a litter to term, whelp naturally and lac- tate properly • Back-to-back pregnancies can be OK; however, from a physiologic and nutritional standpoint, a bitch should not be bred on more than two con- secutive heat cycles without a non-pregnancy cycle off • infertility cases referred to specialists are com- monly due to a bitch being bred at the wrong time during her heat cycle, or estrus, which can cause a missed breeding or small litter

Dr. Cecere holds newly born Golden Retriever puppies.

 SHOULD A BITCH BE BRED? “Once breeders have identified a bitch as having desir- able attributes and having passed breed-specific health clearances, they then must choose an appropriate male with complementary attributes,” Dr. cecere says. “We advise them to have a breeding soundness exam to be sure she is healthy and has no genetic conditions or abnormal- ities that would hinder her pregnancy. “Generally for most breeds, a bitch is not developmentally or physically mature to be bred until she is around 2 years of age,” she continues. “however, for toy and small breeds, they may reach maturity as early as 18 months of age.” On the flip side, most breeds are considered senior dogs at age 7, which corresponds with a decline in fertility. “Older bitches also are at increased risk for health conditions and comorbidities that could negatively affect their ability to carry a litter to term, whelp naturally and lactate properly,” says Dr. cecere. “Only bitches in excellent physical and nutritional condi- tion as determined by a veterinarian should be considered for breeding past age 7,” adds Dr. helms.  HOW OFTEN SHOULD A BITCH BE BRED? Back-to-back pregnancies can be OK – up to a point, says Dr. cecere. “From a physiologic and nutritional standpoint, a bitch should not be bred on more than two consecutive heat cycles without a non-pregnant cycle off,” she says. “the total number of litters a bitch should have over a lifetime depends on the individual dog. Most of this will depend on genetics, temperament, health, conformation, and other traits she brings to the table as a whole. if she requires a cesarean section or intrauterine insemination to get pregnant, this must be taken into consideration as well,” Dr. cecere says.

 IS INFERTILITY REAL OR NOT? One of the most common concerns of breeders is whether their bitch is fertile. “Many of the infertility cases that are being referred here are due to a bitch being bred at the wrong time,” Dr. cecere says. “poor timing during a bitch’s heat cycle or estrus, can cause a missed breeding or small litter.” progesterone testing is key to knowing the appropriate timing for breeding. “if you know when the bitch is ovulat- ing, or when the eggs are released from the follicles, this tells you the fertile window to optimize the chance of pregnancy and having a full-sized litter,” Dr. cecere says. “it also allows for the calculation of an accurate due date and aids in appropriate timing of intervention at whelping should a c-section be needed or desired.” in the bitch, progesterone is a reproductive hormone that increases in the bloodstream just before ovulation. As the progesterone level increases, lutenizing hormone is released from the pituitary gland, triggering the re- lease of eggs from the follicles. progesterone testing can be done every two to three days starting about five days into the heat cycle. When poor timing results in a singleton puppy or small litter, problems can occur. “With a singleton preg- nancy or one with two or three puppies, the dam is at risk of dystocia (a difficult delivery), as there may not be enough signal to begin parturition, or birth,” Dr. cecere explains. “Additionally, there is increased risk of an over- sized puppy or puppies, which can lead to dystocia or death of the puppy or puppies.” planning and preparing to breed a litter of pups is a rewarding part of being a dog breeder. Knowing that you have a knowledgeable veterinarian, like Dr. cecere and Dr. helms, whom you trust and rely on to help you is comforting.

WOOF FOR VETS

DOGNAPPERS Pamela, Woof for Vets Canine Trainer, Mar 12, 2020 AKC Staff, Feb 26, 2021

Hello, My husband, Butch is promoting Woof for Vets on his podcast. As a retired veteran, he objects to some of the NFL teams and players not standing for the flag. Our point is to counteract that by donating to and standing for vets. Our friend received a dog and it has made a big impact on his life. Thank you! IMPORTANT CANINE TIP Avoid giving these treats to your dog – especially chocolate, which can be deadly. Chocolate smells tasty and edible to most dogs but poses a major poisoning risk because it contains theobromine, a substance that is toxic to dogs. It can cause hyperactivity, increased heart rate, vomiting, diarrhea, and even death. If you think your dog has eaten chocolate, call your vet or an animal poison control center immediately. Woof for Vets own Sue, Pamela and April were on stage during the Missouri Pet Breeders Association Pet Expo on March 12th. Sue began by telling the audience that we have had two veterans that have lost their dogs to theft and it needs to stop. She expressed better preparedness, animal theft preventive in any environment and keep them protected and safe. Pamela’s speech informed the audience of the unaware increase numbers regarding dognapping, which breeds are most vulnerable to theft and ways to combat and protect your dog. Pamela and April followed up with a demonstration on how to Recall your dog on cue and the importance of your dog to come quickly. Recall is very important for your dog’s safety and protection and should be the first thing they learned. It’s important to be confident that your dog will come to you when cued to Recall. Pamela, You Rock!!! We are very fortunate to have Pamela and April on the Woof for Vets Team. Thank you, ladies, for all that you do for Woof for Vets and U.S Veterans.

Did you know that Dognappers steal approximately two million dogs annually, an average of six dogs daily, in just a matter of seconds? Their motives are to remove an unattended dog from the backyard, home, park, shelter, or even worse, claim to be the dog’s owner with the intentions of selling the dog or collecting an undeserved reward to make a quick profit. Stolen pets are often used for breeding or dog fights, and neighbors steal dogs because the dog is a nuisance. Only 22% of the dogs are returned to their homes and families. Thieves follow present-day buying trends and target high value dogs “that are easy to grab and run with.” (Tom Sharp, CEO AKC Reunite.) Such as: Bulldogs, Chihuahuas, Yorkshire Terriers, Pomeranians, Maltese, Boston Terriers, Labradoodles, Retrievers, German Shepherds, Cocker Spaniels, and especially young dogs and puppies rank high on the list. A FEW SECONDS, A COMPANION AT RISK! Taking a dog on errands seems harmless, however the safest place is to leave your dog at home with a sitter. Leaving your dog in a vehicle and/or with the windows down presents an opportunity for thieves. Unattended or tied-up companions on the street are vulnerable and easy prey for Dognappers. Free rein dogs should be on a leash when walking and work at practicing being unpredictable by varying your walking routes. Never leave dogs unattended in the backyard, they are susceptible to Dognappers tricks to lure them. Safeguard social media posts, all pictures, announcements and messages. Be leery of strangers in parks or isolated places who offer to hold your dog or take your picture. Reduce your dog’s boredom by taking him/she for a walk or offer them a big bone to chew on. BE A HARD TARGET Supervise your dog on outdoor visits, don’t let your dog wonder around the neighborhood. Microchip your dog and keep the contact information on file and current. Safeguard where you live, places you frequently visit and how much you paid for the dog. Dognapped dogs should be immediately reported to police; call your microchip company and other pet databases and local shelters. Distribute fliers and announce the missing dog on social media. Engrave only your name, address and phone number on the collar or tag. Never engrave the dog’s name on tag or collar. Use tag trackers to find your dog. Be wary of strangers who ask too many detailed questions. Watch for dognappers posing as animal control officers in white vans intending to steal dogs. Ensure your backyard has no escape routes and use locks to

26

secure gates. Install outdoor cameras, alarms on gates, CC TV and sensor lights to alert you of intruders. Remove “Beware of Dog” sign. Teach your dog RECALL – it could save your dog’s life or from being kidnapped by a dognapper. Worried about being puppy scammed? Purchase your next puppy from the Missouri Pet Breeders Association Elite Kennel responsible breeders. Under no circumstances should you ever pay large sums of money, “ridiculous rehoming fees” or purchase expensive equipment when adopting a pet from a shelter or rescue. Here’s Why Veterans Groups Are Happy About the New Airline Restrictions on Service Animals Military.com | By Patricia Kime | 3 Dec 2020 Say goodbye to your chance of sitting next to an emotional support peacock, miniature horse or pig on a U.S. airline. The Department of Transportation issued a final rule Wednesday that allows airlines to restrict animals in passenger cabins to service dogs -- defined as any dog, regardless of breed, trained to help its handler with a physical, psychiatric, intellectual or mental disability. All other animals will be classified as pets, and either must go into the cargo hold, be small enough to fit into a vented carry-on bag that fits under an airplane seat, or left at home. The rules are a double win for military veterans. They address concerns over the rise of untrained animals and pets carried onto planes as “emotional support animals” that pose a safety threat to their service dogs; and grant the inclusion of service dogs for psychiatric conditions. “It may not seem like a huge deal for everyone, but it certainly is a big deal to a veteran who is afraid to travel with their service dog because of emotional support lizards, kangaroos or fake service dogs,” said Rory Diamond, CEO of K-9s for Warriors, a Ponte Vedra, Florida, organization that trains dogs to help veterans with traumatic brain injuries and mental health disorders. The final rule, which will go into effect in 30 days, defines a service animal as a dog, regardless of breed or type, trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of a disabled person. Under the new rules, a disabled person must complete a new form developed by the Department of Transportation at least 48 hours prior to flying with their dog or upon checking in, and complete an additional form if a flight is eight hours or longer certifying that their animal can hold itself for long periods of time or go to the bathroom in a sanitary manner. The new rules allow airlines to limit the number of service animals traveling with a single passenger to two, and to require a dog to fit on a handler’s lap or within the confines of the handler’s foot space on the aircraft. Airline carriers will also be allowed to require that service animals be harnessed or leashed, and to turn away any dog that acts aggressively. The airlines can choose to continue transporting “emotional

support animals” at no charge if they choose to, but given that several large airline organizations, including the Regional Airline Association, the National Air Carrier Association and the Association of Professional Flight Attendants advocated for stricter regulations, they are unlikely to do so. In 2008, the Department of Transportation began requiring airlines to let passengers bring animals on board if they had a note from a doctor saying the animal was needed for emotional support. The menagerie that has followed included a 50-pound pig on a U.S. Airways flight in 2014 that became disruptive before takeoff and was booted off the plane; a miniature horse, Flirty, that accompanied her handler on a regional flight from Chicago to Omaha; cats; and a squirrel, also removed from a flight. Unusual animals prompted carriers to tighten their own rules: American Airlines banned goats, insects, ferrets and hedgehogs in 2018, while United cracked down on support animals for long hauls, barred all animals but cats and dogs and restricted emotional support kittens and puppies from passenger cabins. Last year, Delta Air Lines and a passenger were sued when a dog bit another passenger in the face, causing damage to his lips, his gums and beneath his nose. The Department of Veterans Affairs launched a study in 2011 about the impact a service dog may have on post traumatic stress disorder and other mental health conditions. But the research was halted after two trained animals bit children. That study was restarted, but again halted in 2012 due to problems with at least one kennel that furnished and trained dogs and concerns over health. According to VA, the study is now complete and results have been submitted for review by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine. A Purdue University study released earlier this year found that the most helpful task performed by service dogs for veterans with PTSD is disrupting episodes of anxiety. The study found that a dog’s training to alert the veteran to increasing anxiety and provide physical contact during anxiety episodes were among the most important and most used tasks during a typical day. At least one veterans’ advocacy group, Paralyzed Veterans of America, did not support the proposed changes to the rules regarding service dogs and emotional support animals. PVA lobbied for service animals to include all dogs, cats and miniature horses, and for emotional support animals to include dogs, cats and rabbits. The organization argued that passengers with disabilities who use emotional support animals should continue to bring their animals on board. “The mere presence of an emotional support animal accommodates the person’s disability, and may be crucial to allowing a person with a disability to travel by air,” they wrote in a comment on the proposed rules. Diamond said he agrees emotional support animals provide comfort to their owners but they should not take priority over dogs that enabled disabled persons to accomplish their daily activities. “Look, I love my dog just as much as anyone else, but it’s gotten too easy to go online, buy a vest and have a fake service dog,” Diamond said. “We are thrilled with this new rule. We spend a huge amount of time and effort training service dogs. Now they can fly with confidence.”
