Why the Dachshund Club of America Doesn't Want You to Go to the Races

All breeds of dog were created from existing stock to do something in particular. Just because we tend to keep them all as pets in post-modern times doesn't mean dogs have lived and worked with human beings for centuries. The dachshund was designed for one thing: going to ground.

Welsh Terrier and Earth Dog Trials

Welsh Terriers were bred for a very specific job: to hunt and kill vermin that dared disturb their master's farm. As with many dog occupations, nowadays, there isn't much call for a Welsh Terrier to dispatch vermin, especially in suburban or urban areas. What's more, there are quite a number of animal rights organizations that have been successful at having terrier jobs regulated or even banned.

Specialized Events For Different Breeds

Each type or breed of dog has been bred and developed to fill a particular niche for humans. This may be a very general job such as a companion dog's role, or it may be very practical such as a breed that has been developed as a gun or hunting dog, as a working dog or as a herding or flock guardian. Each breed, regardless of its size or abilities, has a special type of event or competition that they could, with work and practice, start to compete in. Some competitions will require that the dog be a registered purebred, while other events, typically the hunting and working trials, will be open to all dogs regardless of registry or lineage. Other events may be sponsored completely by one breed association and may be restricted to dogs that are registered through that group, club or association. [...]
