Thank you
I don't really have any I am totally new to it myself, it was my first show too!! Arm yourself with lots of treats to get their attention. Try to find yourself a local ringcraft class I go once a week, they basically teach you how to get you dogs to stand nice & how to get them to go at the right sort of pace. They also go over your dogs for you like how a judge would to get them used to being examined. My dogs are by no means perfect & we have only been going a few months, we still have a long way to go yet but were working at it & thats all we can do.

Thank you, well again, you should be VERY proud of your dog. I'm sure you enjoy it, I have to look up trainers like that to help me out, good idea.

Give Angel a doggy biscut for me

Since they aren't an FCI-recognized breed yet, what type of shows do you enter? Are there smaller registries that hold shows for rare breeds in the UK? Reason I'm asking is because although there are 4 organizations here in the U.S. that rare breeds can be entered at their shows, the shows are quite few in number and locations per year. The rare breed I'm hoping to get the end of this year is a Silken Windhound. Rarities Inc. is the host of the shows I've been at to meet the breeders & dogs, but there are only 1 or 2 of their shows I can get to per year. And those are a 4-5 hour drive each way.... Hope your rare breed shows are easier to get to

The shows I enter are breed specific shows ran by the breed's society. There are 2 shows a year, the Essex show I attended a few weeks ago & the Oldham show which is held in August with a few various fun events in between. Other than these the only thing the breed can enter are companion dog shows & a few agriculteral shows in the non breed specific working group classes.

The shows & fundays are generally not easy for me to get to, the show I have just been to was a 6/7 hour drive from where I live & I don't drive!!! I met a lady through a dog forum that happened to live near me who also has NIs & was going to the show, she very kindly offered to take me & 1 dog to the show. We had to go the day before the show & camp over as we never would have managed to go otherwise (not without leaving the house at 3am to get there in time).

I have a funday next weekend where there will be various little events such as clicker training classes & ringcraft classes, that is about 2 -3 hours drive from where I am, I have become very friendly with the lady that took me to Essex & we meet up a lot with our dogs now, she is also going to the funday & is giving me & 1 dog a lift again, again we are camping over.

I then have a show in August, this one is quite close though (only a 20 minute drive from where I live) so family will be taking me to that so I can take both my dogs. Fingers crossed we will do as well at this one!

QUESTION:Which breed of dog would you breed?


ANSWER :wow, i love lots of dog breeds and i would breed them and let good people have them for free. i feel that selling dogs should be illegal. (selling children is so why not dogs?) i feel that if families want a nice purebred dog that would fit in nicely with them that they shouldn't have to pay the show dog price of 1500+. Also i think breeders(any breeders out there correct me if i'm wrong) sell their dogs at such a high price because they think only the people that can pay that much are good enough to own the dog.
i heard a story about a bichon firse that someone had, it had won a few 1st prize awards at some low-importance dogs shows; and they owner wanted to sell it. she gave the BF to the person that bidded the highest and 4 months later the BF was found on an apartment balcony in the worst condition beaten to death.
so you ask would i give a dog to someone that wanted a free dog? yes, i would first talk to the person, spend some time getting to know them; then let them see the dog and watch how they interact, then i would tell the person to let me see pictures of their house, and once they have the dog, check up on them in about a month.
it's kinda like a breed rescue type procededure. (did i spell that right?)
that just my opinion.

I would breed Pembroke Welsh Corgis, I love them to pieces. But I don't nessesarily think I would give them away for free. How would the breeder make any money?

But yeah Corgis are such a beautiful dog and I would definatly choose that breed of dog to breed.
