About ten years ago when I was thirteen-ish I used to show my mums westies for her and used to thoroughly enjoy it! I sort of thought I'd quite like to have a go at showing Chi's if Vincey is to standard. Its so difficult as a newbie to the breed to simply read the breed standard and apply it to the dog, reading the KC breed standard he sounds perfect but of course we all know that without experience you can't really tell!
I've been to some champ shows recently to watch the classes and get some info but haven't been too successful on the info! I wondered if any of you who show could help me out at all? point me in the right direction for an invaluable book or website?
Also I am aware that there is a KC accredited breeder/show breeder relatively close to me, do you guys think it would be cheeky to call and ask just to talk to them about showing and maybe take Vincey down so they could have a look at him? As I am new to the chi world I'm not to sure if this would be acceptable
don't want to be treading on any toes already!!
many thanks in advance guys xx
