Default Planning to show my new pup

Hi,

Am new here have just posted an introduction - but be really nice to hear from other chihuahua people who show ( in the uk) he will be the first chi ive shown, though i do show my yankee really regularly - must say the one thing im most looking forward to is the lack of preparation compared to my yankee who can take up to 4 hours - and hes still not in full coat yet!!

Were off to ringcraft soon as hes finished his jabs - last ones on tuesday coming but in the meantime we have been practicising - he free stands nice when im on the floor - in the process of adding the lead now so far so good! he doesnt mind the table either!

I don't show, so I can't help you there. There are a few on here that do, I'm sure they will chime in soon.

Of course - the only pic i have so far is one of the first times we tried, so excuse the hands showing him what to do - he free stands okish now so will get someone to take pics soon as i can, hes catching on pretty quick and we have head up and tail up when we practice now cant wait to get him to ringcraft classes!!

it will just be practice, every day pick him up and stack him on your knee, just for a couple of seconds and look in his mouth, tell him he's a good boy. Do that 2 or 3 times a day so he gets used to it.

Try and hold him more under the chin rather than around the throat. This is how I do mine: PARKBOW BOYS - PARKBOW CHIHUAHUAS

What's his breeding by the way?

Good luck and hope to see you around the ring soon then!
