Thanks for posting. I second alwayshadpets comments.What great shots. I liked them all. The poodles and their hair-dos--wow--you have to be a hair dresser thats for sure. Dane was beautiful, but wow those dobes--thats where my heart is.
Yeah, wow, I don't think you see too many Poodles finishing from the puppy classes!! I actually love standard Poodles, but can't imagine becoming accomplished enough to deal with the hair..............because of course I would have to show them - LOL!! I actually took a Standard back in the ring for winners last April............. I was just hanging out watching poodles on a week day when spectators are scarce and this handler practically dragged me in to handle a white puppy boy for her .......... she must have been totally desperate - LOL - luckily, he was well trained because trying to even see if his feet were in the right spot was really tough with all the dang hair AND the only place you can put your hands is under their chin and the underside of their tail or you will mess up their hair doThe dog in the second pic has a puppy cut, only dogs under 12 months of age can be shown like that. So not just a new champion, but a puppy champion!
There are pretty much dog shows all over - most people have no ideaGreat pics and thanks for sharing. I wish there were more dog shows in my area. I'd love to take my little guy there and get him use to all the action.
Good observation! I would consider that a faulty head - but like anything else, no dog is perfect and they are judged on the whole dog (hopefully) and the best one on that day wins.great pictures! I dont know anything about showing...but that first dobe (the one you said was big but so handsome) Do lots of dobes foreheads have such a steep angle?? It seems more like a box shape instead of a Wedge?
It depends on the show. Many dog shows only allow dogs who are entered on the grounds for the duration of the show for insurance purposes.Quick question are you able to bring your own dog to the dog shows?
Me either Velmadobe but got a biggie coming up on Saturday the National Working and Pastoral Breeds so i get my multi dobie fix then.Thanks for posting the pictures - I have not been to a show in almost a month............feeling some dog show withdrawl here
I'm glad you enjoyed it - they can become quite addictive you know!
I think the black and white spotted Danes are called Harlequins. I love them ALMOST as much as a Dobe! A friend had one named Scribbles and she was a sweetie.Great pictures......thanks so much for sharing them!
I love dobes........but I also have a soft spot for danes, that dane is outstanding!
If I do ever get one, I want a Merle (I believe that is what the b/w spotted ones are called) And I would want him completely natural
