#Standard of Dog Breed

Dear Schnauzer breeders,

I’m writing to you today as a concerned Schnauzer breeder. Please let me know what you think about the following issue:

Some members of the German PSK want to change the standard of our breeds regarding the tail. As all of them aren’t breeders, I’d like to know what you think about it.

The new standard will say that tails that are too long, carried above the back or at the side will be a mistake, a curled tail will be a great mistake; which means that dogs with those tails will have bad show results, as they can’t be judged as “excellent” any more. And dogs with curled tails will be taken out of breed automatically, as heavy mistakes must lead to disqualification of these dogs on dog shows. Some of our best dogs will be taken out and judged as “bad dogs”!

In my opinion it is absolutely not necessary to change the standard. As those persons tell that foreign breeders want these changes, please let me know your opinion. Write us short statement that says that you don’t want any changes to the standard. Thank you very much!

Viele Grüße / Yours
Edith Schön
