My Goldens were not show dogs but of show quality . I bred mainly as family dogs... now this was back in the 60s when Goldens were wanted with good health backgrounds etc, my Bubba's granddad was best of breed at the Garden. I bred for temperment, etc. Back then I called them companion dogs. loving members of the family. I feel there are a few of us out there, but not through ads etc. I can go back to many generations of show dogs...but that wasn't my intent. I wanted people to have what I had .... loving members of the family. And no, I didn't charge more for my females as all my buyers agreed to spay .

I know the people that we got Hannah from we didn't sign a spay contract and she was more expensive. They weren't a good quality breeder like you bubbatd.

AKC conformation title. You aquire this title by showing your dog and accumulating points based on how many dogs you defeated of your breed. You need a total of 15 points and it's a lot more complicated than that, but I won't bore you LOL!! The dog shows you see on TV where they go around the ring etc. Westminster...Eukanuba National championship etc....and MANY more shows that are not televised are all AKC shows! Best in Show, Best in Group and Best of Breed are all levels of winning. Hope that helps!!

I depends on the breed you show and what division you are in. The division is determined by what state you live in. In order to get points, you must defeat a certain number of dogs of the same sex. Different divisions have different point schedules based on how many dogs of a certain breed are registered in that region and shown etc. Here is an example:

I show pugs in division 8. Lets take females for example. In order to aquire points this is how many you must defeat of the same breed and sex.

1 point = 2 defeated
2 points = 8 defeated
3 points = 13 defeated
4 points = 18 defeated
5 points = 27 defeated

Now, it's not all that easy, because out of the 15 points you accumulate you must have at least 2 majors wins. A major win is a 3,4, or 5 point defeat or "major" as we like to call it.

Hope that wasn't too confusing LOL!!

You can always visit www.akc.org and select the "Events" section and then look under conformation. There should be a lot of information there for you to read up on. OR, if you are really interested then there is a book I sware by for any beginner, or someone who just wants to learn all about dog showing. Here is the link, it's called "Raising A Champion" a begginers guide to showing dogs. It explains everything!http://www.dogwise.com/ItemDetails.c...45673&Method=3
