I'm thinking of showing Piper. Is it best to start at 6 months or wait until she's one? Any info or suggestions welcome!
@kim definitely start young, the sooner the better. At 6 months is a good age to start and they learn early what to do. It is hard work, but so much fun a and rewarding for both of you. That's great that you want to show your baby. Find a bulldog club close to you and talk to them about taking some confirmation classes, this will help bother of you. Find some junior matches to start with to practice on first, then you will be one your way. Good luck and as always have a blast. Plus and this is the major thing to remember, WE WANT TO SEE PICS!!!!!! :2thumbs:
The other thing is post a good pic of Piper, in your avatar he looks white with black, and that is a disqualification with AKC. Is his black a brindle black? If so that is allowed, I could not tell by the pic. Black Is black and will be disqualified. There are other clubs you can show under that are not AKC sanctioned so you can still get the experience and practice your skills. Then one day get another Frenchie that is an AKC standard Frenchie you can show at all AKC shows.
opps, sorry Kim, I just noticed you are in Canada. Instead of showing under AKC you would show under CKC (Canadian Kennel Club) but their standards are the same as our AKC standards. Sorry.
