|Narny||So do you bring your dog even if you are just observing?|

If you're at all interested, go just for the experience! It could be fun.
I know that whenever I go to a GSD event, I always keep an eye out for the working line and German showline dogs and make a point of asking their owners where they got their dogs and what they're like to live with. We always tell people to go out to breed events and meet the different types of dogs before buying one, and how can they do that if nobody's out there representing WLs?

|onyx'girl||WL's need to represent. If you are into it, it will not be all for nothing. Most people with WL's aren't into conformation shows, they only do it for the breed survey. I still say go for it!! Judges sometimes love seeing the WL's as a nice change up from the cookie cutters|

|Narny||Well, Lulu is WLGS not show lines, so I dont think she would do very well in an AKC conformation.|

Who is your breeder? I'll bet they'd jump at the chance to help you get ready for a show!

Looks like the entries closed on 9/27.
I think maybe she would just like you to go so that she can show off your puppy and you can learn what it is all about!
You should go! It would be a great experience!

This is a conformation show, not sport(should be posted in the conformation forum)
You can do some ring training and find a person to handle LuLu in the ring for you. I don't think it is that big a deal to get her ready, she needs to be use to being stacked, approached by judge, dental checked and gait around a ring.
If your breeder wants you to participate, hopefully the breeder can help you prepare? Get in touch with Lana to see if she knows someone to help if your breeder can't help.

What exactly should I expect from this event...
So I was emailed by my breeder asking if I would be interested in this trial/show?? I know NOTHING about showing/competing. I am pretty sure it would be a fiasco but I could be wrong. So my Lulu is 13 months old now so she would be a youth. What should I expect if I signed up for this?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
