Default Looks like we are going to show Aria after all

I'm so nervous!! Her breeder called yesterday to reignite the topic for Aria to go to show. Everyone thinks we should do it, and I think that everyone is right. I have only been to 2 shows ever in my life and that was since I got her. I don't want to handle her myself, for 2 reasons, 1st, because I want someone who is recognizable to handle her, and the 2nd is because I work Fridays and Saturdays. And Saturdays are my highest demand days. I book all my clients out for the year and literally have a few appointments here and there available still first one being 6 weeks from now, so I can't reschedule my clients easily. I'm going to enroll in a handlers class right away and go from there. Any advice??

Congrats! I'm in the same boat! I think I am attending my first class this Thursday. Read my thread about showing Misha. So many people gave me wonderful advice!

I am taking handling class right now. I am loving it. You should allow yourself to show UKC just to have fun. UKC often had 2 shows in a day. So go Sunday. I personally just like working my own dogs.

I'm going to be showing AKC, because that's what my breeder shows his dogs through

Hunny518,

Is your breeder close enough to mentor you? If you are going to owner handle, you will need a GREAT mentor.

If they aren't close enough - they can still probably guide you.

Handling class is great for socialization, and gets you started learning the ropes. It's as much about you as the dog.

Hope you have wonderful experiences!

And Best Wishes to you and Aria.

Thank you. He lives about 2 hrs away and has offered to mentor me. Also, I work with a show groomer/handler and have another friend who used to handle her Bernese mountain dogs. They both have been a lot of help and are helping me calm my nerves. You would think I was preparing to jump out of a plane or something by the anxiety this is causing me. LOL

Very exciting! Isn't odd how we get more nervous for our dogs than ourselves. I can understand why you want someone to handle her, I know around here owner/handlers are few and far between which is a shame. Good luck!

Same here. Hardly any owners/handlers in poodles. It's crazy.
