    Showing a dog is a great way to learn more about your dog’sbreed, meet other people and have fun too. It can also be a new way for you andyour dog to bond. See the following guide if you are thinking of putting yourdog forward for a dog show.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    • 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.

     

    • Make sure you go to plenty of dog shows as a spectator so that you can get a good idea as to what is involved in the whole event, and you will know what to expect.
