Thanks all. overall we had so much fun..I just wish we had some more in his age group show up..if nothing else for me and my comparison..lol. We will hit the shows again, later this fall as there aren't to many for a month or two around here…
Lisa, would love to meet up with y'all as well, are y'all coming down for some coursing later this year?
Sounds like it went well! And keep in mind, the handler can always request from the judge that they show the bite. I have never found a judge that refused that request.
I never request… I just put my hands on the mouth and lift the lips before the judge asks... no one has ever said a word to me about it.
Usually they just thank me for being so efficient! It is something that will settle him down if you are working with him on a table and checking his bite daily... then he knows you will do it and it won't bother him.
Also let others check his teeth and give him a treat... makes it all fun for them!
