Re: Showing - Where do I start?

Hi Mossford yep its an expensive hobby and sometimes very frustrating but so long as you remember that at the end of the day you take the best dog home with you then it can be very enjoyable.
Have you been to any shows locally just to have a look and see what goes on ? You could also visit your local ringcraft classes if you have any to talk to people there, most will be helpful and give you some idea of what to expect. I visited one of the ones I go to long before my first show dog was concieved let alone born.I see your up in this neck of the woods whereabouts? If I can help you with any information don't be scared to PM or e-mail me and if I cant help personally I maybe able to find out who can

Re: Showing - Where do I start?

You might be better off letting the breeder know you intend to show before theyre actually here

It can be expensive and it can be frustrating as Willowish has already said but you do get to meet lots of new people and it is addictive
Good luck
