Gina, over at Pet Connection, posted this one, and it's pretty good, so I'm posting it here as well.
And yes, women are over-represented at dog shows. Demographic research shows 61% percent of dog show watchers are women and 39% are men. To put it another way, women are 19% more likely than the average adult to watch dog shows, while men are 20% less likely. Dog shows also have the greatest appeal among consumers ages 45+.
As for handlers -- the folks paid to walk a dog around a ring on a string -- they too are mostly women.
Are blondes under-represented at dog shows? I had not noticed, but it would not surprise me if it were true.
