This newly updated edition explains the basics of dog showing for novice exhibitors, coaching them through the required routines at dog shows. Canine expert and successful dog exhibitor Caroline Coile begins with sound advice on how to recognize, raise, and train a dog that has prize-winning potential. Combining easy-to-follow text with clear, how-to photos, she goes on to demonstrate the correct way to pose, gait, and handle a dog in the show ring, as well as how to cope with various situations in the ring and out. She also advises on grooming, training, and conducting dress rehearsals, and enlightens her readers on the specific points that dog show judges always look for. The book's many instructive color photos help dog owners understand the do's and don'ts of dog show competition. In this new edition the author adds more training advice, including clicker training for show. She also provides additional tips gleaned from various handlers, and updates changes in AKC competitions and rules that exhibitors need to know.
