What does it cost to show?

Recommended Posts

I have no dog I could actually show but I was wondering what it costs to show a single dog. Does anyone have a yearly all-inclusive estimate? If its for Canadian shower it would be even better but anything will do.

That is alot. Still maybe in another 8 to 10 years I could afford it which is fine as I don't want to add a third dog to my household for another 5 to 10 years anyway. It will give me plenty of time to learn more about it I guess. :lol:

A 3-day local show will cost me 22.50 a day for entry fees.

Round-trip Gas varies

I always buy Rocket a toy, since he is not a show dog and doesn't get to go to them.

Food, of course

Hotel accomodations for out of town shows.

Bare minimum expense on a 3-day show for me is around.
Entry fees: 67.50
Gas: 40.00 closest town 200.00 furthest town to drive
Food: 20.00 closest town 60.00 furthest town to drive
Toy: 15.00
Hotel: 120.00 4-nights

Closest town: approx. 150.00 Furthest town: approx. 500.00

You can get away with only paying entry fees to the yearly show in your town, but if you are going to show your dog you should do it regularly, approx. 2-3 weekends a month. so your looking at a minimum of around 300.00 a show, 600.00 a month for two shows. That's makes the yearly bare minimum 7,200.00 a year.

That's for a dog that does not require extensive grooming, and training and handling your own dog.
