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.

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.
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).
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.
Cheryl Myers Egerton is doing the booster on Friday.

The national judge is May Jacobson. Can't remember who is doing regular classes.

Betty Leininger is doing the regional on Sunday. And can't remember who is doing the regular classes.
