Hi, as I'm getting a new chi puppy... I wanted to know more about showing before I decided to show him or not. I'm new to this so... hope my questions are not too silly..
I'm in Canada, the pup is CKC registered - with non-breeding contract.
1) Does he have to be UN-neutered to enter show? Once I neuter him, does that mean I can no longer show him?
2) For shows, are there different categories? Can I still show him as a puppy and have him neutered later on? How soon can I start showing him?
3) Before showing him, what kind of training or classes does he need? Or am I able to train him at home (ie. standing on table)?
4) What other prep do I need before showing him?
