    Show Dogs

    Advertisements
    Anyone else breed and/or show dogs? I've been showing for almost 9 years now. I show mostly Great Danes, German Shorthaired Pointers, and Weimaraners. It's definitely a huge part of my life. If anyone else shows I would love to talk!

    Do you show as strictly a handler or are you a breeder/handler?

    My mom does most of the breeding, and when I first started out I strictly showed our own (since I was still a Junior). Now I mostly show for others professionally, but I still show some of my own when I can!

    It's definitely a lot of work! It's so rewarding though when you can train a dog when it's a puppy, and watch it grow up. The parts that they show on TV is only half of it!

    All I keep thinking about is when "Showdog Moms and Dads" was on t.v. -- one of the best shows ever

    Did you show on a local level or ? Has it been hard to keep up with given the demands of your college life?

    Awesome!

    I am an owner/handler and have shown for my breeder (Bullmastiffs). I've also shown a Portuguese Water Dog for a friend.

    Was really hoping to get back into it now that I'm in the US!

    The movie Best In Show pretty much sums it up!! I mostly show local (within 2 hours), but sometimes I'll travel up to 4. School makes it difficult, but I have Fridays off which helps since most shows are on the weekends. Below are a couple pictures of the dogs I've shown
