Going to our first show!

This Sunday we're going to a Sanction match in Duncan. I've been going on Monday's to the handler's drop in class to see if I would like it, or even if Kratos would be good at it.

Turns out he has a natural stack, and responds really well. So we're going to a Sanction Match this sunday and next sunday! He'll be in the baby puppy class and its just for fun, no points. But I don't know what to wear.

I've seen regulation shows where the women were hose, flats, and a business suit. Do you wear those at sanction matches? Could someone give this girl some pointers?

Thanks.

Wear something comfortable. A nice pair of pants (not your best
ones), nice shirt, flats or tennis shoes for running.

It's my dog, but not me showing him. That is Fran Foster, my pro handler.

I'd imagine you would be able to find one through your local Kennel club or breeder. I don't know though. I'm going to handle my own dog.

But she is just doing a match, not a point show. I recommend that she show her own dog for now.
