I peronally feel that it is important to refer the standard as much as possible to keep ones memory fresh of what the Dane should be like. I feel no harm or embaressment in keeping myself updated to what I am doing.........right or wrong

WOW...That's a pretty disturbing. I think it's necessary to "refresh" one's memory and reread the standard on occasion, no matter how long one has been involved in this breed.

referring to the standard

i thought the question was too vague. i am not sure if it meant do you actually physically pick up the standard and read it before making a decision.

That is unbelievable! Now you know why we really do not need much revision to the standard. We need people that actually let it affect thier judging and breeding programs. Maybe then we can get animals that are more conformed to the standard with all of the attributes that is called for in the standard, as well as, following correct colors and patterns.

Refering to the Standard

I looked at the results to this poll so far and I am just appalled with the results. I personally refer to the standard EVERY time I look at a dog. That is probably why there are very few dogs out there that impress me and are more 'generic' than classy, stylish and elegant. I must say I am very disappointed that more aren't refering to it.
