First time show and go class
I took a show and go class Friday night. Actually it wasn't a class, it was a format to try out showing your dog. It was my very first attempt at it. We had a large turnout. They had 2 junior classes that ran for 1/2 hour each. Then 2 or 3 adult classes that also ran for 1/2 hour each. Each class was anywhere from 5 to 15 dogs. The juniors were the biggest classes. I was surprised to see so many kids as young as 6 wanting to show their dogs. I watched the juniors since they were all first. I have a friend with a 12 yr daughter showing her lab pup. Some of those kids were great. One high school girl was the best handler all night. My 6 month old girl did just fine for her first time. She caught on quick. There was a practice ring I could use before it was our turn which was so helpful. The judges were very helpful with everyone about getting the most out of their dog. The cost was $7. I thought that was fair. I'm looking forward to our first show in March. Anyone else out there trying out on show and go classes?
