Smile Question about showing in the uk

Hi,
im new to all this so if i get something wrong or you dont think Alfie is to show standard then please let me know, but i just had some questions about how you would go about starting to show your dog.
I bought Alfie as a show quality pup from a well known breeder about 5 months ago. He is nearly 8 months now. He is kc registered and has a good pedigree with 18 champions. I would love to start showing him at some point but been completely new to this i have no idea where to start. I was just wondering if anyone had any pointers? Iv attatched two pictures of Alfie and would love to know what you think of him.
Any advice would be greatly appricated

I know nothing of conformation and showing in the UK.
I just had to chime in to say that he has the sweetest face! He's a darling!!

These aren't the best pics to be able to answer your question accurately but from what I can see....based on the first pic his topline is arced. Could just be the way he was standing. But toplines (from neck to tail) should be level w/no bumps, dips, etc....just a level FLAT line. His tail set looks a little low too...but again could be the way he was standing.

You'll want to get a photo of him free stacking himself on a hard surface....it's really difficult to say for sure based on those pics. And I don't dare to say too much just because it's hard to see him well enough. He is handsome ...but there really is a lot to the standard. More than you'd think! LOL How is his bite? Does he have both testicles?

Fwiw...I'm not in the UK either....but there isn't a huge difference in standard between the US & UK.

Thank you for your reply. Iv just tried to get a better picture of him but he wasnt very happy because i woke him up haha. As you said thought, he still has a dip to his back and his tail is a little low. Thank you for the advice thought, its much appreciated
