Film Crew in the Star Puppy Class
The filming was directed by Mary Burch the CGC Director for the American Kennel Club. The filming production company was Jameson Media Group, led by Alan Hall. They had about 5 cameras of various sizes moving around the floor. The dogs seemed to have a great time with all the action.
When the two movies are finished, they will be posted here.

Selection of TMDTC
It all started with our Board of Directors voting to pursue using AKC logos for decoration on our walls. Gail Lansdon, the Marketing Chair, then began calling the AKC for their Logos and permission to use them on our walls (Not an easy task). Gail, using all her sales and marketing experience, went from person to person "selling our program" and trying to find someone with enough "authority" to make a decision. Finally she connected with Mary Burch, AKC Director of CGC. Gail talked with her and Mary said she will talk with her other AKC people. Well, it just happened that AKC was in the early stages of planning a new series of higher quality movies. Mary also did some research and viewed our website and then Gail received the email. Mary wrote, "I viewed your website and"
"WOW !!!- Your Club Does Everything"
"I didn't know any clubs were as organized as you are." We would like to use your club to film our new Star Puppy Movie.
As Mary and Gail talked more, Mary also decided to film the Canine Good Citizen Movie and the Farm Dog Testing that we hosted last Month.
The Farm Dog Movie is finished and will be posted here in about a week.
