Have fun....keep it light....keep going every week....:thumbsup:

I tell you it takes time - I went for 6 months and I don't think I ever looked good in the ring .....:blink:.

....Ava?....she always looked good....she was a natural.

Can't wait to hear how you both liked it!!!!

We are home! I am so GLAD I postponed starting in June when we were suppose to. We were MELTING tonight and it wasn't even that hot like it has been! WHEW! Anyway, she did great. Great form/structure, great stride/gait. Nan said she was born for the show ring! (she's a former show judge.) Of course we do have things that we have to work on, mainly the table, with her stack and making her stand on her own. She did after the 3rd try and held it until Nan came to the table. But she let Nan check her over and check her purty teeth. So yup, we gotta practice! So we'll start going every Tuesday night and 2nd week of Sept, We'll start back on the obedience class. I hope it cools down by then! The humidity is horrid here, as I am sure it is in a lot of places. Ugghh now it's time to go hit the shower! Delilah needs one bad, but I just put her AdvantageMulti on her, so she can't have one for a few more days.

I'm excited!!

Stacy- Christopher didn't go with me for this one,as I wasn't sure what to expect.But I will definately be taking him. There were two young girls there with their Mom's. Total 4 of us there. 2 Belgian Shepherds, 2 Keeshounds, 1 Standard Poodle and of course miss teeny tiny Delilah! She looked like a little mouse compared to all the others! But she held her own really well!! I am proud of her.

haha! sounds like my ringcraft class!
all great danes, rotties, st bernerds & Milo! lol

So glad your class went well!

I think she's a good age to start off aswell - I started Milo when he was 4 months - a little early. we went back when he was 8 months.

another thing you might want to try, if necessary....

Ava is very shy around strangers, thus....not very good on the table with a judge touching her.

So I would take her into stores like Petsmart, Lucky's bed & biscuit, Lowes, Home depot, etc....and ask the sales people to help me out. I asked them to pretend they were judges and I put her on the counter and had them run their hands down her back, etc. - I didn't let them touch her mouth though....

it did help somewhat, but she's still very shy around strangers..
