- Showing a dog at a Companion Dog Show is normally the place to start when you buy a dog for show. This is because they usually have classes for pedigrees and novelty classes.
- Before you can continue, you will have to register your dog with the Kennel Club. It is also a good idea to join your breed club, as you can pick up plenty of advice from other members for a dog show.
- Obedience classes and ringcraft classes will also benefit you greatly for showing a dog. They prepare you for the show and show you how to display to the judge.
