I have a puppy. A stunning puppy( I think at least), but not an ASL dog. In fact he is DDR/Czech, black sable.
I thought it would be fun to show him in some AKC conformation shows. For exposure, experience, and cause ( why not?).
I personally hate the separation in the breed. I hate the discourse and complaining. And I figure you should show what YOU think is to standard and the judges can't put up dogs that don't show. So if I think my puppy is to standard, then I should put him out there.
Am I being stupid? Would my pup be welcomed? How does one go about " picking" judges to show under? Is there somewhere you can look at the dogs that judges have picked? A central database? Would he have a better chance if I used a pro handler?
I do plan on doing German style showing as well, and fingers crossed getting a Koer rating. But I wanna get him into as many venues as possible.
Any help or insight would be great. PM is fine if there are things you don't want to say on the board. I am in Maryland if that makes a difference.
