Wish Us Luck - First Show on Sunday

Tiggy will be attending his first show on Sunday. I am so nervous, lol. Any pointers for a first time show? I have work a lot on his stacking and staying and also show and have my friends that he meets examine him so he is used to be touched by other people. I also have him used to standing on a table.

Do you know if they are faulted for giving kisses? Tiggy likes to kiss everyone he meets, lol.

Good luck.
Where is the show you are going to?
Just relax and enjoy. Let us know how you get on:)

I found with mine that the judges tend to be forgiving of puppies for a lot of things. They don't forgive everything, but they understand puppies.

You need to understand that it is possible that all of your prepwork will come down to nothing that first time out – OR he may blow you away with how awesome he is!

Here is the most important pointer… HAVE FUN.. BOTH YOU AND TIGGY!!!!
And good luck
As far as kisses... Makes my day to have my kids want to slurp on the judge...

**LOL, I'm sure he will try

Thanks everyone for the encouragement it's a big all breed two day show, so we are going down the Friday before (basenjis show on Sunday) to get settled into the hotel, then Saturday we'll go check out the show grounds.

Tiggy has been to a busy show before and did just fine with all the excitement so I'm not worried about that part, and he is very treat driven so I'll stay focused right on the bait and not care what else is going on around him.**

And don't worry if he is a silly boy …... first time they usually are... ggg... just relax and make it fun for both of you.... I have never worried with a young dog at shows if they act silly..... regardless of what the judges thinks...

LOL, I don't expect it to be perfect but I think we may do well. Everyone says that he has great potential

I thought it must be Nurnberg!

I'm sure you will both be fine.

Good Luck Maya and Tiggy, I know you'll do just fine!!!!:)

Fingers crossed.:D

Don't be nervous and have fun with it, that's what everyone told me!
GOOD LUCK!!!!

Good Luck! Can't wait to hear all about it. Maybe even some pictures!

Oh, and somehow I think we all knew there would be pics & video from Tiggy's first show. 😃 😃 😃

No she's not going, but Rainer is going to be a student judge

@WBL:

I didn't think she would with having the pups.

Good luck:D

Good luck to you both!!! And have FUN 😃

Good luck to Tiggy.

Uku when to his first show last sunday and he was perfect, behaving far, far better than 4 of the 8 b's showing that day. Got really nice comments from the judge! Had to be best puppy as he was the only basenji pup 😃
But he had too be good as he big brother Timbo went BOB and Eos BOS :rolleyes:
