    Default Showing? :)

    I see that most of you spend the time with Cavaliers very activly, practising some dog sports We made only the Children agility level for puppys and we are thinking about farther "carier"

    But I would like to ask, how many of you are showing their dogs?

    I like shows very much. Blanca was only on the six shows till now and now we are thinking about going to another Europe country for some CACIB show And how about other Forum Cavaliers?

    I have a small show/breeding kennel. We have an AKC champion that was finished by us and two pointed females. We have had a lot happen in the last two years, so we show very infrequently.

    I'd like to show Merlin, but he always sits down when you go over him - which is no good! He will stand lovely on the table until you try to go over him and then he thinks its playtime.

    A bit more practice this year and we might try showing next year!

    For all you show folks out there - did you intend to show when you got your Cavy's? I thought they had to be intact to be shown and when we purchase here, you sign a non-breeding contract and have to have your dog spayed/neutered.

    How would you know what to look for when choosing your puppy? Are there any sites with this information?

    Thanks!

    Our first cavalier was bought as a companion. We stumbled into showing through cavalier fun matches. Then we searched for a breeder who was willing to sell us a dog to show. Because we'd gone to club shows and done months of research, we found a few that were comfortable enough to deal with us. Most first timers have to co-own a non restricted dog. Which is good, because everyone could use a mentor or two.
