After today's thread commenting how exhibitors force their dogs to show I thought I would show you all a couple of videos from the shows this past summer in the UK.

The first is my friends bitch who was 6.5 months at the time

She looks miserable don't you think??

The second is one of my girls... Looks miserable too don't you think??


Both these girls are crufts qualified they
Prob spend 2% of their time in the ring the rest of the time they are being pets.

Anyone who doesn't know if a chi is scared it tucks it's tail under.. If it's happy and confident it's tail is up like Pandora and Lotus' if they hated it they wouldn't do it. It's not cruel I've never ever seen a miserable dog at shows they are so happy from seeing their friends and the yummy treats they get the fuss from the judges and other exhibitors.

Lotus and Sarah? And "Lulu", I don't remember the blonde girl's name...

But, Oh my! It's been TOO long since I've seen those adorable pups! (And their equally pretty owners!)

Thanks for posting. Good memories, and those little show pups look like they are having such a time! :)

Gosh, such abused and miserable dogs you have there!! Can't believe you FORCE them to prance around that ring with their tails proudly high and clearly "not" enjoying every moment of it. Shame on you! ;)

Gets right up my nose every show I've been to all the dogs have been happy and full of beans!!

Funny thing is and I can only speak for Louise and I as she's the only one I've spent the night before a show with when we got everything ready all the dogs bundle into one crate so excited to go out!!!

Here's one of Lotus' critiques too we get critiques for placing 1st or 2nd at champ
Shows or 1st and open. Tells you how good your dog is (some
Judges put bad points) this was from
Bath, the judge is a toy breed specialist, the bitch who beat lotus is now nearly a champion, lotus was still a puppy and came 2nd in junior bitch and 3rd in puppy bitch both Places qualify her for crufts 2012

They are both beautiful!! And look totally happy. I am sure there are some dogs that simply don't like being in the ring. But the both dogs in the video certainly do seem to like it. :)

Never seen one, if they don't enjoy it they aren't shown but I've never seen a chi not happy. Seen a couple of minor pups with tails down at first but they walk and what not just a little overwhelming with the noise.

love these videos sarah

Thanks Amanda thought you would like a panda fix xx
