    So what about Crufts? The dog show faces a conundrum: how can you judge breeds of dog according to brand-new criteria, when the actual dogs have been bred to old, outdated, criteria? “All the dogs going to Crufts have qualified under the old standard,” said Collins-Nattrass. “You can’t change the standard of a dog overnight. It takes 15 to 20 years to change physical characteristics by selective breeding. I’ve a got a dog, Artemis, that I can enter because he’s qualified. But he can’t possibly win.”

    i’ve always wondered about this? How are the judges ever going to pick a dog to it’s new standard when they themself are breeding and picking dogs to the ‘old’ standard? ??? Will be an interesting year at crufts this year.
