These are both active clubs and hold regular shows in November every year.

Birmingham and Tuscaloosa Kennel Clubs have a 4 day cluster coming up April 3-6, 2014 in Columbiana. Attending a show is a good way to meet breeders/exhibitors and see if you actually WANT to do that.

I'm in your area, too. PM me if you want more information.
Thanks for the info! I didn't know either of these existed. Do you know anything about HOTC?

Trust me after all **** broke loose there is at minimum a gate, a crate AND door between them. Briggs has proven that he can get a door open, knock down gates, and get out of his crate. None of which he could do before this. He was like a wild animal for a little while. We had 3 really bad days but things are really calming down. I started using the liquid chlorophyll and I don't know if it's a coincidence but it got better almost immediately. Thankfully Karly has not shown any interest or I'm sure it would have been worse.

The whole Stud Dog and Brood Bitch class thing. They are non-regular classes, and each dog/bitch must also have 2 of it's offspring shown at the same show, and be in the class with them too. They aren't eligible to compete past the classes. I've never seen these classes at any of the shows I've been to. It would be interesting to see.
I was at one show with a stud dog class. A pair of ELDERLY dogs. Both didn't quite move like they used to. But I agree... rare!

That's why I love me some UKC.

Exactly!

"SECTION 8. A dog which is blind, deaf, castrated,
spayed, or which has been changed in appearance by
artificial means except as specified in the standard for
its breed, or a male which does not have two normal
testicles normally located in the scrotum, may not
compete at any show and will be disqualified except
that a castrated male may be entered as Stud Dog in
the Stud Dog Class and a spayed bitch may be entered
as Brood Bitch in the Brood Bitch Class. A dog will
not be considered to have been changed by artificial
means because of removal of dewclaws or docking of
tail if it is of a breed in which such removal or docking
is a regularly approved practice which is not contrary
to the standard. Neutered dogs and spayed bitches
would be allowed to compete in Veterans Classes only
at independent specialties and/or those all-breed shows
which do not offer any competitive classes beyond Best
of Breed."

Can altered dogs go in for Jr. Showmanship?

Not in AKC. Dog and bitches must be intact.
