    Default Seminar at international SM conference, Rugby

    Please note anyone with questions on SM and cavaliers that they wish the panel to address can send the questions to me or to representatives for pet owner questions and breeder questions. I'll post that info shortly.

    This is a really top notch lineup and the SM Q&A will be chaired by Dr Bruce Fogle, widely known author on dogs and TV presenter.
