First time show

hello everyone. Next weekend is Ayo,s first ever show!. It's a four day international show here in santo Domingo, with dogs coming fromU.S. , Puerto Rico, Mexico, Central and South America. I am not sure how big a show it is because I have never been, but it's the biggest one here and the most important! We have been practicing but only been training for a week! I have been getting really good help from people here and everyone loves Ayo! There aren't that many Basenjis here. In fact, unless there are some international basenjis coming that I do not yet know about it's only Ayo and a tricolor girl called Aida, who I saw last month in another ,smaller show here. I am participating in the junior class since Ayo is 9 months old! I am a little nervous but I think it will be fun. So far I will be handling him, but a friend of mine who is a professional handler will train with us tomorrow and if he does well with her she might do it for me. He,s learning well with me but I am not such a quick learner!:):) will post pictures when its over!!!

Good for you for jumping in there and working towards your first show. I am sure Ayo will do his very best for you or the professional handler. Wishing you the best outcome possible!

Good luck with your first show. Don't forget she is only a baby, enjoy yourselves!


Sending you good luck vibes and wishes..Take lots of pictures for us to see..

Thanks a lot! iknow he is learning fast and I am doing mmy best, just going to have a good time! Will take lots of pictures

Do you get a judging program in the mail or is it available online? In the US at least, you know how many are entered that way.

The best of luck to you and Ayo for next weekend.

Thanks, no there is not a lot online, only an announcement of the show with the dates on the Dominican canine federation site.But I will try to get some more info at practice tonight!
