Conformation. Should I bother?
hey everyone. Stauba is supposed to be bred by the breeder I got her from in the future (I get the joy of raising her pups!) in order to preserve her line. She will have the one litter and then be spayed. I plan on getting her a tracking title, she's doing great, even though she is early on in her training, beforehand. I was doing reading on conformation and It says its not to compete but to rate her against what her breed should be. Did I take that correctly? I don't want to show her, we are aiming for search and rescue one day (though to me she is a pretty princess!). I'm just not sure if a conformation would be good for her to have because of her future plans, or if its just for the yuppie yup american over-angulated show dogs.
