Next month Houston Hundesport will be hosting a fun match dog show for all breeds(purebred) in Dickinson at the private home of Rallhaus German Shepherds. The date is scheduled to be the first Saturday in February. The man that will be judging it is Fred Lanting. He is author of The Total German Shepherd and Canine Hip Dysplasia and other Orthopedic Disorders. You can read about him here:
This show will not be for points or titles but there will be prizes. Fred will also be hosting a seminar(topic to be determined) at lunch so it would be great to hear him speak. We will also have raffle prizes/silent auction.
You do not need to be an experienced handler or have a show dog to enter in the show. All levels of experience are welcome and rescue dogs are welcome. No aggressive dogs please. The dog must be able to be examined by the judge..including looking in the mouth and going over the entire body. There is a month or so until the show, so if you are seriously interested and your dog has never been in a show, start getting them used to being handled and examined by a stranger and gaiting/being stacked. This is great for puppies! If enough dogs of certain breeds show up, then we will have rings of just those breeds.
This is all the info I have for now, thanks and please pass the info along!
