Yep like when showing working lines. My dog was placed last even though the two dogs in front of him were out of shape and quit moving every half lap.

Yep...I will need to travel some to find shows under different judges. Hard since it is limited around here - same judge at all the shows.

Yep, the only time I showed Akela I understand the lack of training... my dog leaped like a kangaroo while the other dogs trotted beautiful, but to place after a dog that was obviously sick is discouraging... and I showed only because the judge had hinted me he liked the dog, LOL!

But I can't complain, he got a great rating "for his line". That will be on his pedigree and i doubt I'll ever show again

I'm really looking forward to this show! And I'm pretty excited that it doesn't start until noon- at least I get to sleep in on Friday! And I'm very, very excited to see good friends and root them on!

I can leave a day later, but now have to get up early so I can make the start of the trial. 4.5 hour drive for me.

try being last when the dog in front of you is falling on it's forehand so bad that you are waiting for it to sprawl out in a heap! Politics in action. grrrr.....so I go to judges who don't have the personal connection so strongly to the club putting on the show....

Just found the release for this event, and found this in it:
Quote:
Only dogs participating in this event will be allowed on the training/trialing grounds
I assumed that was the case but was hoping it wasn't. I doubt I can stay all day at the show since it's too far away for me to run home and let Pimg out for a break. I wonder if it would fly to for me to park just off the grounds (like at the school yard just to the east of the event grounds).

Lee
Yes Lee. So frustrating! I have been conditioning her and she looks fantastic. Muscle development, stamina and substance (all without "extra" help - can't say that much these days )

The more I hear about who is entered and how the show will inevitably go...the more jaded I get... Oh well. I just need my SG show rating. Sadly we have not shown since she as a pup (don't even get me started on co-ownership) so I will be happy to get a rating as a young adult. I need to make some of the IL, GA and Carolina shows. New judges to get a decent perspective on my dog...rather than just being marked down because her face is not black and she is black/tan, not black/red. Structure, movement and presence over color!!! Thought that was covered in GSD 101...

Take her and leave her in the car. Nobody will know if your dog is entered and even if you were entered, you could certainly pull her and she would stay in your car anyway. Just leave her crated in the car. Go let her out for potty breaks when needed and away from the trial/show fields. You will be fine to bring her. I believe Brandi is bringing Balen on Sat for a photo so you will be in good company

Just don't have her on lead the whole time with her barking, aggressing and distracting everyone...that is annoying and why they warn no outside dogs, but if your dog keeps well in the car and you don't distract the competitors, nobody will care if you have her.

As long as you are respectful it should be fine. I'm bringing Coke because my husband is coming along, like he's not going to stand out....Most of us own dogs that aren't entered but can't be left home all weekend. At least Pimg is the right breed! They can't really tell you what dogs you can/can't have in your vehicle and I don't really see you as someone who would let their dog run wild ringside.

I have two dogs entered and will have all 5 with me. If I couldn't bring them I couldn't go. Don't have them ring side or where they will be bothering the competitors or their dogs or causing interference. Keep them on leash, pick up after your dog (THIS IS ONE OF THE WORST ISSUES AT SHOWS), don't do anything that might cause the club hardship or problems about future use of this facility.

I am showing two working lines. I am already at a disadvantage. As long as they get a fair rating I don't care about placement. I have done some work with them as much as Lies and I were able to do plus conditioning. I have discussed collars and been offered help from some experienced show people. Deja has no coat, but is extremely fit. Elena is fancier, but a bit less cooperative about the whole gaiting thing unless I am fairly close (and then I am too slow).

This is a wonderful club with a lot of really nice people. They are my club away from home. People will have fun.
