Showing a puppy questions
Just curious -
Zuza will be about 3.5-4 months old next month at the time of a few conformation shows in my area.
I would like to get her out there but am unsure of which ones to enter a puppy in, or even if a pup that young can be entered?
I just want it for the socialization aspect mostly, get her out and about and to experience something else (for both of us).
Also, I think seeing another working line in the ring will be good for the breed.
This is a list of the shows available to me in the next month or so:
Calendar of Events
You don't have to be entered in a show to bring your pup to socialize. Well, technically, they don't want un-entered dogs on the show grounds, but I have never had any trouble bringing my pups out to the show to socialize.
I think pups have to be at least 6 months of age to enter the puppy classes, anyway.
See if there is a fun match going on near you, where you can enter your pup.
Congrats on your new puppy, unfortunately zuza cant be entered into a official class until she is 6 months old on the day of the show. that being said there are a number of shows where there is 'conformation fun matches' like in woodstock tonight there is a conformation fun match , puppies have to be at least three months. i have seen younger but the owner says they are three . They are great fun and learning and the cost is usually 5 to 10 dollars. we are taking our 5 month old today and there is also a rally sanction match we are going to tonight at the woodstock show. it is alwasy easier to bring puppies to outdoor shows for then indoor.
Thanks Brian! :)
Tonight won't do because she is coming home tonight. I would love to do a puppy fun match with her to start her out. I would like to do multiple venues with her and think this would be so much fun.
Do you know of anything coming up? Say, like in August?
How do I know if they offer a fun match or not? I didn't see it on the website.. ?
I know of three in august early september, august 20 st catherines, august 27 richmond hill and i think sept3 in leamington, if you go to the calender of events you posted below then go get the premium list from the show secretary they will show you if a show has fun matches , also if you get the dogs in canada magazine they have information on upcoming events , training , agility in canada . i will let you know if there are anything alse coming up in the area. take care and enjoy your new puppy
Lemington is about 15 mins away from my hometown and my parents place and I was planning on going home around that time anyways.. might have to change the dates up so I can attend.
August 20th is a herding trial I want to attend and watch so that one is out.
I will definitely watch the site and keep checking back!
