I am interested in start showing my male saint and was wondering how old he has to be first and if he can be neutred when showed or if he has to be intact. Any good advice on showing would be appreciated. Also he is AKC registered, could i double register with Ukc and show with them as well. I have never shown before but i am very interested in it.
UKC would be the best venue to start with. It's much more beginner friendly and doesn't allow professional handlers. You can double register your St. with a copy of your AKC papers. Google United Kennel Club, and check under events and then conformation. You can show from 8 weeks, but don't earn points until the puppy class at 6 months. You cannot show a neutered/spayed animal in conformation just as in AKC. Good luck, it's alot of fun!
