Well, that's the thing about showing. You don't just find a show in your area and sign your dog up. It is NO fun whatsoever to hear a judge diss your dog. Showing is work. You have to prepare the dog for a show with training, yupp, conformation training and you have to learn what to do, what not to do, etc. But wait, there is more. You have to go to shows, and watch what is winning and by whom. If you see a dog kind of like yours with championship points, find out who the judges were.
It is time-consuming, emotional, and expensive to show a dog, and to show one under a judge that will give you no chance whatsoever, is certainly not worth it.
I have done well in matches, took a few firsts, a BOB, and a group 2, but I am too chicken to put my money and my feelings on the line for championship points. I would have to spend a lot more time learning the judges.
