It's happening!

If things go according to plan, Nino will be making his debut in under two weeks! He doesn't turn 6 months until the 20th of June, but a local show over memorial day weekend is hosting a fun match for puppies 4-6 months. Out little guy is very unpolished, but we figured it would be good for both of us to get a ring experience, and our breeder agreed. It's going to be a busy two weeks for Mr Nino and me, but I'm incredibly excited. Now to figure out what to wear...

Best of luck to you and Nino. I hope all goes smoothly. Fun matches are such a good time. The ring experience is but a part of going to matches. The overall atmosphere will be an important facet...one that provides noise and commotion that helps prepare a pup for "the real deal".

What to wear...Comfortable shoes and clothing that doesn't cause your dog to blend into you. Matches are very casual.

Looking forward to a full report and pictures.

Very exciting! Keep us posted. Is it a fun match, or will she be going for points?

No, it's just a B match. But they run it like a real show, except they will award a BIS puppy as well as BIS adult. And this is at a Toy Breed only show, so there are no big dogs around.

I'm not ready to take her to a "real" show, whether she is or not! She's doing GREAT on her obedience training, but we've worked very little on show ring stuff. Fortunately, like a lot of Havanese, she self-stacks quite nicely, and she will stand on cue, if she sits by mistake. (since we practice a lot of sits in obedience)

Have a good time with your pups ladies. I hope that both Nino and Panda enjoy their experience.

I suspect Panda may be one of those puppies who spends most of her first ring time on her hind feet!
