I have showed him, but he is a typical puppy. He's a goof and just wants to play. He loses to what I call 'robot' dogs. Puppies that are very mature looking and are trained for this sort of thing. I prefer mine to play and have fun the first year and after that, training begins. Jan Bruner was on the fence about putting him up, but, she said he's still so much puppy but will be very, very nice when he's more mature. I will put him in a show in Oct and see how he does. Frankie will be at the same show.
I totally agree with you Arlene, about letting puppies be puppies! Mind you I was mortified when one of mine who played up in the ring at her first outing went on to get Best Puppy from amongst several very well trained puppies!
Lovely pictures, he's certainly a smart little boy!!
