|If your dog is World Class it should probably speak for itself right? Anyone who has to advertise as "world class" (seeing as there is no true definition, only opinions) means they are trying to too hard to prove to someone that their dog is great. If your dog(s) are world class it probably doesn't even need to be said.|

Very true, last sentence

|I'll bet Chaz had a mullet to go along with his adidas and tight shirt. I think I'll pass on the book and wait for the movie. I wonder who will play the role of Chaz Reinhold. Pitt will be too old by then or he'd be perfect.|

I agree with that. If it is truly great, there is no need to boast or brag, as the dog will speak for itself.
* Looking good Chaz...

|IMHO, This dog is to be considered "world class"|
Zambo vom Riedschlurgi, 3xVA in 3 locations in this country. Has shown high SG in 2010 in BSZS and actively shows/trains/trials in Germany. 7X Sch3 in trials all over the world. And is producing progeny that is excelling in the show ring and in sport. Erin O'Shea has done incredible with him, and I believe it was her first dog (like ever).
But I agree with all above, a dog must earn it world wide.

|If someone is continually producing "World Class" puppies I don't think they are going to have to advertise.|
I think people would be knocking their doors down to get one.

|Excellent posts from a lot of you!|
My personal opinion, a "World Class" dog would be of course one that
has competed internationally, not just nationally.
Afterall, "World Class" would cover the world
I do agree, people with these caliber of dogs rarely if ever have to advertise.
It's the ones that have "nothing" on their dogs but the great stories
they can tell about how great they are, those are the type that tend to rely on
the thesaurus to start making ads for their puppies for sale
It's nice to see I'm not the only one baffled by this term that gets used so frequently!
