From 12 weeks of age my girl was in the ring she was already walking well on lead thanks to following her "brother" around at home, we did puppy sweepstakes and open shows and just got her use to being handled and fussed over and all the activity of the show arena etc, she won multiple baby puppy awards and then at 6months started in as minor puppy and again had much success by this age she was still a little reserved when out in groups but it was all experience for me and her, she is one month off a year old, now in puppy section and strutting out like she has been doing it all before, we still have some issues with group stacking but working on this but the personality is shining through now and she is a happy happy puppy when out there with all her buddies and just like when i do agility with my other dog I get her a bit revved up before we lead out into the ring and I talk to her a lot when we are trotting around. with only 40 points left to gain in best of Breed or bitch challenge or groups or best in show (not likely at this age), she will soon have her Australian Champion title

Default Pet/ Show temperament

Thanks, Cavon & Congrats Agidog!
I look forward to seeing Disney mature and come into his own? In the meantime, I will just enjoy the ride.

I wonder how adding another toy poodle will do to help or hurt his maturing..
I've never thought of stopping at 1

If my dream materialise, I will have 3 toys and 1 standard.

attitude does mean a lot. For some dogs that means maturing. Some dogs it means sttling down. Some it means gaining confidence.

FOr my girl (not a poodle but my aussie) it meant concentrating on showing and PRACTICING. When she was doing performance too- she was like MEH this is NOT flyball it SUCKS. This summer we pulled her from other events. I made sure we practiced. We trained showing as much as we would have any other sport.

Voila she went in and did awesome and in 2 shows finished her points. (She was only at 2). practice practice practice in a positive matter builds confidence, and confidence gives that look at me attitude you want.
