Curious who else will be showing in New England this summer. Our first show is May 22 in Maine. It's supposed to be a great one for practice. Few Poodle entries--perfect for me to embarrass myself for the first time :). I'm completely stressing out over getting his hair right for this. I'd love a judge who doesn't allow hairspray, floppy topknot I can do LOL!

After that Jas will go out the first weekend in June with a handler. Then I'll take back over after until he's 9 months old.

If you'll be attending any of these events we'd love to say "hi" at least. When Jas is with the handler I'll be easy to spot--I'll be the chick hiding behind everything/everyone so Jasper can't see or hear me :bird:.

Try not to worry to much about it! Have fun and practice, practice, practice. Everytime I go to a show I get better and faster in getting them sprayed up. I switched Hairspray the last time as well as how I re-washed braclets so that they were straight instead of curly (sign of a novice) The HS I use now it great and I will never switch, AEROGEL, recommended by Pro poodle handlers. Pricey but WELL WORTH EVERY CENT! much easier to take out after and doesn't leave a white residue nor get clumpy when taking it out. The other product recommended was Pro-line self rinse, mix it with water 1/2 n 1/2 in a spray bottle and spray and blow dry the bracelets or any other curly parts like necks or rosettes. Keeps them looking straight and well groomed.

thestars, thanks so much for the tips! Not having a grip on products is definitely part of my stress! I'm currently using all CC products and the difference between when I bathe him, and when the groomer bathes him, is amazing. His coat looks gorgeous and shiny after a trip to the groomer.

Where do you buy the AeroGel?

MericoX- The show is going to be held here:

Wassamki Springs-Scarborough
56 Saco St
Scarborough, ME 04074

I have us entered in the 6-9 month class and AOH. I'll be the one with the puppy pulling up grass like there's no tomorrow LOL. We were past all of this, so I hope after this brief laps in common sense that he'll be back to best behavior before the show. I so wish this show were indoors!


Harley_chik- Thank you so much, we appreciate (and need!) the support!
