Ready or not, here we come...

Nervous and excited. Our first AKC show will be next month.
She will be just *barely* 6 mos. I just got my confirmation from MB-F

Anyone else showing 6-9mo. puppies in Vermont next month?

Lots of men for her to kiss up to. She oddly loves men more than women, so she ought to at least have a positive first time.

just to show you what your upcoming judges like, ,

Mr. Norman B Kenney his last assignment results - Doberman Pinscher Club Of Charlotte, Inc. - Saturday 03/29/14 Results

Dr. Robert A Indeglia - Results

Col. Joe B Purkhiser - Results

Mr. Robert J Shreve - Results



do you keep a judges book? I used to love researching judges too and always kept a 'book' on them. what breed they bred, if a dobe breeder judge then I would check out their breedings and see what they liked and disliked, etc. and would watch them judge from ringside and take notes. some were.......head hunters, liked smooth shoulder, and if they knew movement, liked blacks more than reds, always put up males for breed, how they ran their ring, etc.

Since I have been showing Ratties, I kind of keep a mental list of the judges I like and don't like, but that's UKC. Although a lot of our judges are dual registry (UKC/AKC judges)

I think a book is a splendid Idea. I like to learn about people and what they tend to put up, I'll check this stuff out.

they usually have a bio on all approved dog judges.......... well worth reading too.

for example.......

Good luck! Remember to breathe and have fun!

Of those judges listed the only one I know anything about off the top of my head is Col Joe Purkhiser - all the times I have shown to him he has been very patient and friendly. In fact, my very first show picture was with him and he was very reassuring to me when the photographer was being impatient and not exactly friendly

I keep a spreadsheet of judges so I know who I would show to again, who was a jerk in the ring, any notes about what they seem to like, etc. so I can be selective with my entries.

Thanks all for the encouragement and judge info. I just took a spill on my motorcycle today and buggered up my knee and my arms. Hope I'm up to stride and not hobbling by then. LOL

ouch, hope the owies feel better soon.

if you have to hobble around the ring, it will take you longer to do the patterns, so you and your girl will be 'looked at' longer by the Judge than the others in your class. she could grow on him.........more he looks at her, the better he likes her..........
