Thank you so much Robin! Exactly what I needed!
Whiskey is pretty set in terms of grooming. I am obsessive about his grooming. I make sure he glows so he's pretty nicely set for the show already. Wiva used to be a kennel dog till 2 weeks ago. It's her first time in a house so she's not potty trained fully...which means accidents in the crate which means a stinky girl. She's the one I am worried about keeping clean after I groom her. She's got a very plush coat as well so I know I can't bathe her the day before. She would look like a big puff ball.
I just started her on salmon oil and Olewo so I'm hoping her coat looks tiptop by show time.
I wasn't planning on feeding the day of the show because I am paranoid about them pooping in the ring. But some people were saying that I should feed them because they would have low energy. Glad to see the tip about an electrolyte drink. I'll use that for sure. With these chow hounds, I am sure the lack of breakfast will make them pull hard and work well.
I'm a runner so I'm all set on the shoes and clothes
And the handler will be a friend from training so we're used to working together so I think that will go smoothly.
I'm considering not washing Whisk at all... His coat looks perfect right now. His last bath was a couple weeks ago. But then again, I might just wash him tomorrow to be sure... I think I'll wash Wiva tomorrow and hope she doesn't have any major accidents before the show *fingers crossed*
I'm so nervous! I hope the dogs don't pick up on that...I swear Whiskey is a mind reader and reacts to my emotions so easily... He'll be in the 9-12 month senior puppy class which is funny considering his first birthday is on Dec 20 so I'm pretty sure he'll be the most senior senior
What conditioning spray would you recommend Robin?
