I normally tell people to always be in show mode when the dogs are around your feet, tell them to stand and give them a titbit to eat when they do. It will eventually come together. As for her running around - just let her get on with it after all she is a puppy - I like nothing more when I am judging than having a naughty puppy. Just as long as she isn't doing back flips and not being able to assess the movements. LOL

I hope I haven't been too critical with you and not upset you in any way.
Thank you so much! No I love advice if it's good or bad I am new and want to learn I don't say I know it all because then how am I learning? This was a month back so she is naked now as we say for the long coats, I really hope it starts coming in soon. yes her muzzle is a little longer than what I was going for but after seeing her generations of family I know she can mature into it and actually I think it fits the standard it is pointed and portion to her head well at least now it looks that way it looked longer for a bit maybe I am use to to it now But either way she still draws attention and have had the instructor of the handlers class want me to show her already I would rather wait for her coat to come in a bit or to be more ready.
She does everything wonderfully BUT the lead training so I went back to the basics, start with a regular harness leash and am walking her then when she understands I am in control switch to the lead, what do you think?
I think lead training has been the hardest so far I hate for her not to be able to walk on the lead and ruin her chances to shine because she really is a natural to everything else.
ANY help or hints on lead/Gait training would be so helpful

I use chicken in a zip lock baggy but she gets bored so I have to switch so often string cheese, chicken, turkey and whatever else I hate liver but if it works I might try it.
I have also trained to stack on command I use the work "wait" and she is doing great with that. But the gaiting/lead training is not so wonderful she walks so far and stops also tries to pull away to the side so I am trying the harness walking and go from there so far good but we will see

I have found that if you can walk Cali with another chi who walks well, they tend to follow their lead, keep praising her when she walks properly with the other one, gradually she will learn to walk on her own but still praise her and give her treats as you go. If you haven't got another one to walk with her it may take longer. I normally put either a cat collar on them or a lightweight show lead and let them run around with it around their neck so they get used to having something there.

Hope this is of some use.

Thank you for all your help she was wonderful today. I took her and Ricky (my studly boy) out for a fun walk the other day since I thought that it would help to be just walked around and tonight we did some gaiting and she has improved alot so I am hopeful again =)
I got a couple of pictures to show you all how naked she is LOL but she still looks great in my eyes but needs to grow that coat in badly LOL..
here is a recent shot stacking 6-11-10

Thank you again

Did it help walking her with another on of "her" pack? It should give her a lot more confidence and before long she should walk by herself

Default Showing a LC in Puppy Classes?

I was just wondering -- what is the expected norm for showing a LC chi when still in the "puppy" classes. I know that bare/sparse coat is a disqualification, but LC's have their "naked" phase right around when you can start to show them. Is it a DQ in puppy classes too?

I kind of want to get in the ring sooner than later w/ Bryco but the coat thing has been a question I've had for awhile.

Bryco still has a bit more puppy fluff than Cami, but I can see it going that route in the next 2 months hahaha. Cami has been fun to watch grow up, for sure! You are doing a great job with her, Bryco still won't stand without a LOT of help from me.

You're definitely doing a great job with her! It definitely looks like her head is catching up to her muzzle - it doesn't look as long as the first pic. She'll begin to grow in her adult coat before long...she'll be nice & fluffy before you know it!

I wouldn't worry about coat in puppy classes. If you take a look at my post (with pics) of LKA champ show last november, that was perrys and Denise's theo's first show and they were both 6months they don't have hardly any coat and perry got the VHC. A lot of the pups going up to juinor don't have full coats yet. I think the sooner u can get him in the ring the better.
