I just entered one of my puppies a few days ago, so I'll be making the long drive out.
Should be fun, no pressure with just a puppy. Be able to get caught up with some friends and of course counting on nice weather.

Awesome! Which class? Still on the fence about entering my little pup - she is a working girl so I'm wondering if I should throw caution to the wind and show her now or wait till she matures a little and has more training. People call me crazy for even considering it, but that's me
I will show my older female in 24+ open class. Hope to see you there!

Hey if you're going why not? With a little puppy it would just be a good experience. I showed Nikon at a Sieger Show when he was little mainly because I wanted to "hire" a certain person to handle him so I could meet her.

As probably the only working pup in her class, she will be under greater scrutiny - I don't want to present a goofy pup as she will be at a disadvantage. She has nice enough structure that with training, she will show well, and represent her lines well. She is too silly right now and has not had sufficient show work yet.

I just don't want to go there and present my pup poorly, or mar my breeder's name. I just wish I could get one smaller show with her (like OG Landheim or OG Carolina) before the SS, but all the deadlines fall well before the cut off for SS so I will have to enter now and will not get a chance to see how she does at a show before I have to enter for SS. I do not really want to show her at OG Carolina because she will still not be ready, but I want to see how she does at a bigger show. I am still having such a hard time deciding about the SS - half the time, I type in her info and then just click out when I have second thoughts

I will be entered in the 6-9 female class and will likely be our pups first show.
So not expecting to do great, just get some experience and have fun.

Never been to one, so I am definitely interested! Is the show free? Tried looking on the site. I didn't know puppies could do it, awww.

Yup - free! If you do bring your dog, I wouldn't have him out during the show.

Puppy class is very cute!! I have a 4 month old entered - she will be a a couple weeks shy of 6 months when she shows! She's a determined little puller and I think she'll stack herself by then
