I guess it depends on where you live but here in Canada dogs will often finish (if they are worthy) in a few weekends of showing. I am showing a male from a litter I bred (at all my expense) with no intention on breeding him and he goes out with me for a weekend here and a weekend there. I don't want breeding rights to him (neither does his owner) and he will likely be neutered after getting those last few points and he turns 2 (so I can pay to check his hips and elbows while he is already sedated). The owners love having the free grooming and socialization that he receives while he's with me and get a kick out of the ribbons I bring them back. I live with 4 dogs and while I wish I could I can't keep every litter that might be show potential so this works for me. I just want to have fun showing my puppies to other breeders and judges which I can do thanks to these great owners.
