    DefaultShow Question

    I've been to a few shows, 4 to be exact, and they have been fairly large. However, I entered a show which has only two dog entries and one bitch entry (mine) and I have a question - Is it worth attending a show with so few entries given no "competition" within bitch class?

    I do not know the minimum number for points but as long as the opposite sec has enough for 1 point and you need singles, I'd go. Some judged will put you up for best of winners if the dog is competative.

    Thanks for the opinion. I'm leaning towards going just unsure on the points possibility and thought if none of the other two showed then there would be no points. Thanks. image.jpg

    The bitch would not get any points unless she is awarded BOW. Then it would only be 1 point. But 1 point is 1 point, and you DO need 15 points.

    I would go if the show was't too far of a drive just for the practice (if the dog hasn't shown much). I wouldn't go if it meant I had to spend money on hotels though.

    Also, in case you don't know, you can find out entries from the year before. In our area, it's pretty good for judging if its worth entering. I sometimes pick smaller shows so that I stand a better chance at getting the points.

    Thank you all for the advice. I did look up the entries from last year and there were just a few more then. It is a five hour drive but as Yellowbelly said, "1 point is 1 point" and we do need the practice.

    You need 15 points to make a champion including 2 majors (3 points or more) so you can go to and (win) 9 single points shows, before majors become a problem. Not a bad plan to give your dog some ring experience. If you can afford a handler, that is the quickest route to success. If you show in Owner/Handler it may take a while longer.
