An astute observer once described the scene at a typical dog show as "organized confusion." While the action may seem more confusion than organization, the reverse is actually true. It just takes a little while to learn this. Dog Showing for Beginners is the ideal means for the budding exhibitor to grasp the essentials and understand what is unfolding before her or him in this unique recreation. Every chapter has something important to tell the reader. Opening with a candid overview of what to expect from being a part of the sport, Dog Showing for Beginners goes on to help find that first show dog and explain how to get started in showing and hands-on learning. Here are simple explanations of how dog shows are structured and how dogs become champions. Excellent guidance on getting the equipment needed and entering shows is included along with how to approach your first show. This book also helps the reader find a place in dog showing and how to deal with the up and the down sides of the game. From beginning to end, Dog Showing for Beginners is touched with an insider's sometimes irreverent whimsy; as the author points out, if you're going to do dog shows, a sense of humor is a definite plus!
