haha Roxy!!! Im down to make the 5.5 hr drive but not to lose. lol

That show will have so many handler's it wouldnt even be funny. I plan to get Sting out AKC right about that time but honestly, I think it would be a waste for me. Luckily, you live in the area and so you better atleast attend that show if you dont enter.

What's really the harm in entering and losing? Maybe you'll get some amazing feedback to help with future shows.

The same reason I think all dog groomers should compete. Even if you just started! It doesn't matter if you're not up to par, as long as you learn something it's not a wasted trip.

There's a method to the madness.....!! LOL

Money for a trip and entry is my problem too. When I have it I am entering Billy in a show no matter how many are competing. He and I both need to have the experience and there's not better way than that.

Its a show you really shouldnt miss out on. They critique your dog so you know what they like or dislike about them. Most shows are understanding of newbies, just let them know you are new and they will be a bit nicer to you :D

I have seen newbies go into big shows and still come out with good awards/prizes.

Yeah I hear yah that why we will be doing UKC this month to get our feet wet.

CA is a big divison and we have more poodles here so competition is steap

I emailed some top handler and breeders and all agreed to help us so that is our free lessons lol. Chris Bailey is super nice and I can not wait to get help from her. One of her dogs placed at the PCA.

Allan Chambers is going to talk to us this weekend !
there is a AKC show this weekend but we missed the deadline so we will be there for viewing.
