New to Poodles, from Gettysburg, PA
I'm new to poodles and new to conformation, but I'm game to give it a go. In fact, I had the baby out to a whole weekend of UKC shows in September but was disappointed to find he was the only standard poodle--indeed, the only poodle of any description--on the whole showgrounds. So we got 100 points but with NO competition (we didn't place in Group), which actually felt pretty disappointing. On the other hand, I found exhibitors to be very friendly and generous with advice, and one handler pulled me off the sideline to run one of her "lesser" dogs in best of breed. I had a blast and learned a lot.
