UKC Show This Weekend

So I'm entering my first conformation show this weekend. Anyone have any advice? I emailed the trial secretary and I guess they expect a pretty big turnout so I'm excited that there will at least be competition. This is my first conformation show where I'll be showing/handling. I've seen AKC style shows but wouldn't dare entering one lol.

We've been working on stacking and handling for about 3 weeks now. Here he is this past weekend. I'm probably the only person that trains his dog in the conformation ring with a tug lol.



Yes I know his front feet are a little east-west in the picture...but have you ever seen a happier dog in the conformation ring?

Good luck! Do you know the pre-entry numbers? If it's a big show sometimes they will be posted on the UKC message boards.

Nikon (GSD 9/7/08)
Indy (All-American 5/10/12)

Had no idea they had those! I'm signing up day of. It's so cool! Where do I look for those? It's the Wisconsin Boston Terrier Association show being held in Wisconsin (redundant).

This is where I look:

UKC Forums - UKC Dog Events

Some clubs will post the pre-entry numbers a few days before the show, so that people thinking of entering day-of can see if there will be enough competition (or course you can have a dozen people enter day-of, but if there is pre-entries in your classes then you're guaranteed the competition you need).
