How to start on dog conformation handling without purchasing a show dog?


Recommended Posts

I live in my parents' home, and they do not like dogs in their home. I have always wanted to start dog showing, but am not able to get a show dog myself. What are ways to participate in conformation showing without purchasing a show dog? (How to find someone to allow me handle their dog if they don't even know me) I can't get into junior handling since I am over the age limit.

go to a few dog shows and talk to the owners/handlers and talk to them about getting started in handling. this would also be a good expierence to get used to the set ups of shows and also to see how others handle the dogs.


Thank for this answer from other board.
