Hello!

Hello, I wanted to introduce myself and my Sam. He's 5 months old, and I hope to show him one day.

I have so many questions; I want him to grow up to be a very well behaved dog, and I think he's on his way to being so. He's smart and knows quite a few commands already. He's just got some habits that are hard to deal with right now, such as ankle biting (he likes to set his teeth on my feet, my ankles, and tug my pantlegs as I walk; no shoelace is safe). It's hard to ignore when his little dagger teeth are so very sharp!

I'm also curious about what hairs around his eyes are able to be cut for show, since they sometimes get right into his eyes and I know it bothers him. If none can be cut, how do I keep them out of his eyes since his hair is too short to put in a rubber band or clip?

Anyway, hello all!

Welcome! sam i lovely. The hair grows pretty quickly and in just a bit, it will be long enough to put up. Good luck on the show circuit, it is my passion.

The 5mo old teething puppy stage. It does get better very soon . I'm just learning how to show and the only cutting you are allowed is a slight sanitary trim and the pads. I also think just a bit around the paws.
My show dog looks like I cut her bangs but it was her sister ruff housing and pulling at her hair.
We want pictures!

Sam is in a class so that we can learn basic obedience.

Here are a few pictures of him, after he took a dreaded bath; he is minding them less and less, but I don't think he'll ever get to liking being dried!
