The Wire Fox Terrier as a Show Dog

The Wire Fox Terrier has many purposes or jobs in its life and one of the jobs they probably consider the most fun is their role as a show dog. Not only do they get to prance back and forth showing their stuff, but they get to participate in fun activities with their owner. When the Wire Fox Terrier is first being trained in preparation for the show ring, they have a tendency to show their stubbornness. In true fashion with the Wire Fox Terrier, once they get down to business, they do an excellent job in the ring. Conformation is one area the Wire Fox Terrier performs in at the shows. This involves the dog having to conform to certain standards of the breed. For instance, their size can't be any larger or longer than what the AKC feels is the correct size for the dog. Their coat has to be the correct length and texture as the breed standard, etc. [...]

The Brussels Griffon at the Dog Show

If you are purchasing a Brussels Griffon to show at dog shows, you will need to be aware of which variant of Brussels Griffon you adopt, especially if you live in Europe.

Showing your Norwegian Elkhound

As mentioned previously, purebred dogs are often shown in what are called conformation events. These are the dog shows that you often see on television; what many people may not know is that the dogs are not competing against one another in these events. Instead, the dogs are each being judged against their particular breed's "standard" or "ideal dog"; this "ideal dog" has never actually existed, or at least the judges don't have any one single live dog in mind when observing the candidates. This "ideal" is what the breed is supposed to strive towards achieving, the characteristics of the perfect dog to fulfill the job description for which the breed was created. The dog that most closely resembles the standard for its breed is the dog that wins in the show ring. [...]

Dog Shows and the St. Bernard

For hundreds of years, from at least the seventeenth century through the nineteenth century, St. Bernards were bred and raised in the Great St. Bernard Pass in the monastery and hospice run by the monks who had originally bred the breed. The monks were strict with their breeding standards, and as a result, they had a marvelous breed of dog. Breeding began outside of the hospice and monastery in Switzerland in 1855 by a man named Henrich Schumacher. Schumacher bred the dogs according the original hospice breed standard, and provided the dogs to the monks. But this standard was no upheld by foreigners like the English who bred the dogs all around Switzerland. In order to protect the dog's specific breeding, the Swiss Kennel Club was formed in 1883; they wrote the Swiss St. Bernard breed standard in 1884: it maintained the standard established by the monks in the hospice and monastery. [...]

Are Lhasa Apsos really true showdogs?

Showing A Komondor

A Komondor is a showstopper. It's beautiful white-corded appearance and confident bearing makes it a favorite dog to watch. The coat itself is what gives it the unique appearance with hair that twists into curly cords by age two. In fact, if the coat fails to cord up by this age, it is disqualified as a show dog. In order to show a Komondor, the coat has to have the cords all over its body, including the head and legs. The coat also has to be all white in adults, with some allowance for cream or buff colors in puppies. The requirements for the coat are very stringent, but it is also what makes this breed so greatly admired by dog fanciers. [...]
