they can be lots of fun. My first dog show was put on by the Kennel Ration dog food company(of which most of you are too young to remember). I won with my field beagle for having the longest tail. i was only 5yrs old and still have great memories of it. Guess that is what got me hooked so long ago.
He's your friend,your partner,your defender your dog.You are his life,his love,his leader. He will be yours faithful and true to the last beat of his heart.You owe it to him to worthy of such devotion
I have always wanted to put our girls in a show but hubby didn't want to. And now his excuse for Charlie is that he needs to be at least a year. :(
He will be at drill on the day of the show but he said he would take Charlie with him so I can't put him in it. Poo on him! LOL
Though I need to get Charlie more used to the leash before I put him in a show. I could put Thelma or Louise in it but they might get jealous if one went and not the other. I can't handle both. Thelma is a tank and pulls me everywhere. LOL
Mommy to Thelma and Louise (dogs), Larry, Sam, Rescue (cats), Logan (hamster) and Charlie (dog).
TNgal, the UKC dog shows are a great way to get your feet wet and to have fun. They are pretty laid back. How old is your dog? Go to the UKC site and find when shows are in your area. Our friend who bought one our males to show has only gotten 4 points in AKC in about 1 1/2 years, but she went Best In Show with him at UKC.
We take puppies at 4 months old to AKC fun matches. They then go with a handler at 5 months and start showing at 6 months.
