Ok, just got my schedule for the shows in London next weekend.

Friday, October 13 - Dobermans will be in ring 4 around 1:15 pm, and there are 40 of them entered. This is a booster show for The DOBE Association.

Saturday, October 14 - the regular entry of Dobermans will be judged at 11:20 am in ring 9. There are 43 entered.

The Doberman Pinscher Club of Canada Inc national specialty show gets under way in ring 7 at 1:30 pm and there is an entry of 77. Rocket is entered as a veteran, Zeke is in the specials class for champions.

Sunday, October 15 - the regular entry of Dobermans is at 12:05 in ring 7. There are 39 entered.

The Thames Valley Doberman Pinscher Club specialty show then starts in ring 8 at 2:30 with an entry of 60 Dobermans.

Jessie is entered in obedience on Friday in trial 1 and on Sunday in trial 5.

These shows are at the Western fairgrounds in London, Ontario. There is an admission fee, don't know what it is but it's probably between $7 and $10, I'm guessing.

dobie lover I think I will be coming on the Saturday, but I don't think I am allowed to bring Jasmine. I think she has to be 6 months old. :(

It's not that she has to be 6 months old. It's that she would have to be 6 months old *and* entered in the show. Dogs who are not entered are not allowed on the show grounds.

Thanks for the info. Is there a way to see a list of the entrants prior to the show?

I plan to be there Saturday for the DPCC specialty show as a spectator. Also hoping to check out some obedience trials to try and pick up some tips!

I thought she could be registered as an exhibitor only.

Okie- As Mary said you can bring Jasmine, their is no age requirement..Just for showing must be 6mths of age.You will just half to pay the $7-10 to get in.

Dobedad- here is the site you can go to http://www.showdogs.org/shows.html
it's under Colmar show services and you will see the london show. You can get the entry from there.

Hope this helps.

People do bring dogs that are unentered but it is against the rules, and if an unentered dog is noticed, you will be asked to leave. It's happened to me, and I've certainly seen it happen to others.

This is a big indoor show, and I don't know why anyone would want to bring a young puppy that isn't fully vaccinated. It's a big Doberman entry (for this area) and it's going to take 3+ hours to judge the specialty. Sitting there with an unentered (and bored) puppy/dog probably is going to wear pretty thin.

Show catalogues showing the entrants won't be available until the first day of the show (Friday).

Jasmine is fully vaccinated except for rabies, and who says I was going to stay for 3+ hours.

No one says you're going to stay for 3 hours, but the fact remains that it is against the rules. Your puppy is quite young and will noticeably stand out that she is too young to be entered so you likely would get booted out of the show.

I'm sorry if you don't like it. I don't make the rules. As I said, I've been asked to leave a show with a puppy before that I was trying to socialize. I knew the rules and broke them. It didn't surprise me that we were asked to take him out of the building.

Mary is right-the younger the puppy, the more likely you are to get thrown out with it.

Another thing to consider is you want to provide only positive experiences when you're socializing young puppies, and you can't control how other dogs in a crowded situation (especially indoors) are going to respond. One ugly incident, and you could wind up with a puppy that's afraid of other dogs.

So while I've taken young pups to shows in the past, it's not something I do anymore...they really don't belong there.

It's just as well, this way I will be able to stay and enjoy the show instead of concentrating on Jasmine. :)

The first (and last) show I took Java to was a local AKC show in Morristown, NJ (20 min from home). I didn't expect to be allowed to bring her in, but when I asked before paying the entrance fee I was told it was ok - she was just over 6 months. I was, however, asked to have her leashed to her regular collar, so I just slipped the training collar into my purse. We sat in the stands in front of the Dobe ring, not too close so as to be a distraction. She was surprisingly good, maybe because she had been exercised and fed a bit, and she sat in my lap and fell asleep.

Not sure I would have brought her to a show unless it was close to home. Had her travel crate in the back just in case she wasn't ready to sit still for the 1 1/2 hrs we spent there.
