Oh dear, you have got problems. You must have entered some sort of showing class?

I have shown cavaliers & japanese chins. When is the competition and what do you need to know?

Hi Lucy(?)

Whereabouts are you in the West Midlands? I'm in Coventry, have shown my Cavalier a bit and although no expert could show you the basics if you could get over to me - though Handling classes seem to be a bit more complicated than ordinary breed classes (the junior handlers seem to have to do some very fancy footwork!). When is Coventry Ladies?

Email me via the forum if you're interested.

Kate, Oliver and Aled

Cavaliers are shown on a loose lead - so don't worry about 'stacking'. As for where to position the lead: experiment with your own dog. You want him to be moving freely and comfortably, at an even, pace, but not pulling. He will show you when he is most comfortable.
Find out if the Show is in or out of doors and practise accordingly. If you are happy, he will be. Tension from you will come up the lead to him. Just enjoy. That's the secret.

Hi there - remember me? I'm the one with the handsome tricolour boy and the painted nails. I was there when you qualified and saw the surprise on your face when you won the class.

I thought you did pretty well when I saw you handling, but if you must have an aide de memoire, Mr Li (Alvacier) recommended that I study Junior Handling The White Way, Marina White, which I purchased on the internet. If you do a Google search you will find it.

I had a very hard time trying to follow some of the patterns for the figures.
