The current millennium gives dog breeders an amazing access to stock that would have been completely out of reach only a few generations ago. The advent of air travel, overnight shipping, semen transport, and the ability to locate and contact breeders around the world has given modern breeders a considerable advantage. For widely available breeds this means the ability to direct traits towards a goal (modern or historic).  Rare dog breeds have never had a better chance to rebound.


Spinone breeders, around the world, must be commended on their use of these new techniques to expand the gene pool. If you are a Spinone breeder ~ please stand up and take a bow!
