Default Show Help.....PLEASE!?!

Okay some of you know that I would like to show my next dog....hopefully a Golden!

So I was wondering if some one could tell me what all the show "terms" mean?!?!

Like what is Comformation, and Gaiting and CH?

And all those other terms!

Thanks!

CH = champion
conformation = dog show (i think)
gait= the dogs movement when running, walking etc.

Conformation can be the name of the type of show, or the actual conformation of the dog(afterall, that is why the show is called a conformation show ).

Lizmo, have you ever seen the Golden breed ring? It is a HUGE handler breed, I believe. Takes alot of dogs to make a major, and takes a very good dog and handler to beat all those dogs.. which is why you see so many prof. handlers in the breed. Can be extremely hard to finish an owner handled dogs in Goldens, if I'm not mistaken.

Goldens, German Shepherds, and Shelties are the three major breeds that are in this area. They are usually hard to get points on unless you have a structurally sound and amazing movement type of dog.

Some breeds are hard to get a title at a young age like a belgian - they grow soo differently, their coats are very different as well then other breeds.

Corgis on the other hand, are fairly easy to title around here, not huge competition and they grow fairly stable from what I can tell.

But, as rabbitsarebetter have said..

Am Ch - American Championship
Can Ch - Canadian Championship
BIS - Best In Show
BPIG - Best Puppy in Group
etc etc..

So are you guys saying that it is very hard to place with an owner handled Golden?

Well, I am thinking about either a Golden or a Cocker for show!

A Golden will be my first choise though

If you want to get into showing, you absolutley can not live without this book!!!! IT IS THE BEST BOOK FOR BEGINNERS! It explains everything so nicely with pictures etc. They give you all the vocabulary used in the show world and what it means. The book also explains how to train a show dog, what to take to the shows, how the shows work, how you accumulate points, the different classes to enter and so much more. This book saved me in the beginning. Even if you are years away, get it. It's a great book!!! Raising A Champion, A beginner's guide to showing dogs. http://www.thewelltraineddog.com/
