does anyone have any tips ?

Enzo is difficult to get trotting right in the ring he wants to run. We need a new show collar and not sure which one to get. Our problem is keeping the chain high on the neck.

We will take him to this UKC show on sunday just for kicks lol I am meeting my friend there because he wants to show me his new amstaff puppy that he will soon be showing AKC.

He gets the standing part right. Now when we say stand ( i will see if I get it on tape lol) he walks to us and puts his face in our hand and positions him self lol.

Ok yeah that's exactly what I do........he wouldn't have gotten far then as he has in his short career. Besides how can one train another if they themselves not sure of what they are doing? Lets see you handle him in the next show, and how well your ring skills are hahahahahahaha.They may be slightly better than mine but still not at pro level.lol:doh:
you know exactly what i mean by training him ..... you never practice with him on slowing down for the judge , or getting him used to distractions hence why he acts up at ukc shows lol
You want to practice the night before a show LMAO
And this is the main reason there aren't enough owner/handlers in the poodle ring in my opinion. Too many pros to compete with and not a lot of people that are willing to go up against a pro. I know for me that's one of the intimidation factors of showing a poodle.
I agree , most breeders and handlers tell my sister and I are brave ....

We got a colored dog and are trying to show him ourselves I don't see whats wrong for trying.we are thick skinned so I dunno why people make it seem like handling your own dog is a horror film lol

I don't either. I mean why are certain colors harder to win with or why is it easier to win with a dog instead of a bitch if you are new? There are just some things that I think are ridiculous about showing dogs but I still want to do it for some unknown reason.
True, that may stop many people.But I remember that they are human too and I see there mistakes as well. If you practice enough, and have a good dog you will be fine. So far It's been fun for my sister and I . We care less what others think/say. Besides all of those pros where once at our level, you got to start somewhere.:driver:
I practice 2 weeks to a week before the show get it right hahahahahaha. I like having a firey horse lol. I'll get better.

Enzo's second Night went better :D we let him burn off some energy before class.

I love our teacher she is so great, we are learning a lot from her in just 1 hr :). I was going to tape on monday but it was foggy and you can barely see !

You guys should video this. It would be so great for people to see where he makes mistakes and how you are told to correct them. Glad things are better.:)
Best of luck Roxy :) !!!!! And yes - we demand a video from UKC ; ) ! Where is it held ???

CBrand - you are sooooo right about that clip from CRUFTS - I almost fainted LOL watching those gorgeous heavenly creatures moving in that ring - oh my .... that was really something.
