Working line shepherds and confirmation

Is it un heard of for working line dogs to be in confirmation?

Would I be shunned if I signed lulu up for confirmation? And how would I go about doing it, signing her up for a show I mean?

Also are there any really good book for showing? Thanks for your help.

Look into showing in UKC. They are more open to the working line structures than AKC.

All working lines must be shown at an SV show to at least a G rating before they can be breed surveyed. So yes, you can show your working line. Just make sure it is the correct venue.

It's confOrmation by the way. How an animal conforms to a standard.

Working lines show, but not in AKC. They can, but admittedly, they won't win. It's hard enough to win with a Euro show line, a working line basically doesn't stand a prayer.
