I have not been around the show scene in decades. Then it was another breed.
Now I am wanting to get a poodle to show and work and show groom. My question is in the Conformation Ring UKC and AKC how much does size matter when it comes to winning placements?
In my old breed it matter as taller dogs were placed over smaller correct dogs. Used to see it in many breeds all the time in mid 80 through mid 90s.
With the Standard size being anything over 15 inches there alot of size differences. So am curious if my past experiences still hold true in todays show rings. Will a 26 inch SP be placed over a 22 inch even though the 22 has better everything? I have seen some show poodle videos like Westminister and such. So really curious what others have seen and experienced in person with their dogs.
