Shows and Dog Handling

The most popular form of canine competition in this country is the dog show - the contest for Kennel Club registered pure-bred dogs, such as those seen at the most prestigious and the biggest world  dog show that takes place in Birmingham - Crufts.

 

I love showing and handling dogs as much as I do obedience training. It’s fun and a great way of meeting new people and learning new skills. The Kennel Club sets a Breed Standard for every breed of dog it recognises, which represents the ideal conformation and characteristics for that breed. At shows, the Judge must compare each dog with the Breed Standard to find the dog nearest to that ideal picture of the breed. The dog that represents the ideal conformation and characteristics of that breed is awarded Best of Breed award which enters him/her into Group competition and so on…
