the February 15 -17, 2002 Plum Creek/CKC shows, DSA sponsored a public
education booth about snow dogs. This was done to provide good
information to the public in the hopes of helping to offset a mass
purchase of ‘snow dogs’ (as a result of the Disney movie) which could
have a serious impact on rescue groups later in the year.
of DSA, the Columbine Country Malamute Club and the Rocky Mountain Siberian
Husky Club participated by bringing brochures and staffing the booth.
During peak times on Saturday and Sunday we had dogs from all three breeds
at the booth for the public to meet and learn about. We had brochures
and posters on each breed, a poster with a comparison of the breeds, a
cautionary poster for anyone considering acquiring any of these breeds, and
handouts of all the posters. Public attendance was better than
expected since we were located in the agility building. The booth was
advertised in several places in the main exhibition building.
