    Default Anyone know how to judge the show worthiness of a pup?

    these pictures were take of zamboni at just over 5 months old and 42 pounds. I'd appreciate any kind of evaluation of his conformation and if it's even worth it to think about showing him. If you see flaws, beyond the tear stains that are not under control right now, please feel free to point them out. I am not looking for oh, what a pretty dog complements but an honest evaluation, pluses and minuses. Thanks.http://s256.photobucket.com/albums/h...view=slideshow

    Lin, this might be better in the competition and showing area. It's totally fine here of course but if you'd like me to move it just let me know.

    Im not foolish enough to criticize someone's baby...... Just kidding. BUT, Your best bet is to print out the breed standards; read and understand them completely and then make the evaluation yourself. That way you will learn what the standards expect and where each attribute places your dog in the show arena.

    Yes, I'm doing that too now that I have the illustrated standard. Other, not kennel blind opinions are helpful as well.

    He is a handsome young Bulldog! I'm no judge but all I could see was that his paws looked somewhat "easty/westy", but it is really hard to tell when the dog is standing still instead of walking. He is a beauty!

    Judging from pix is one of the most difficult of tasks. I judged a fancy goldy show a couple years online... it was a terrible task. The very slightest of angle change makes a world of difference. It pretty much came down to whoever took the best pix, won. LOL Deportation is an important attribute but is impossible to assertion from pix. Like I said above, knowledge of the standards is the biggest aid in measuring your animal.
    ALso, I belong to a Koi website and they have a special forum for people that want their koi evaluated by the members. It is laden with warnings to leave your feelings at home if you post a koi for evaluation. Koi can be in the five figure price range and some even hit six figures. You can imagine how someone feels when they post their $25K fish on a site and the members tell them it is crap... LOL.. A lot of hard feelings are borne from 'picture judging'.

    @linwhite - can I make a tiny suggestion .... I suggest maybe getting some stacking blocks so he knows where to stand and how to stand then using a show lead (and not hold him but the scruff), stack him and have some pictures taken again. If he is stacked properly and held with a show lead, it will be easier for checking him out.

    Thanks for both suggestions. I know what stacking blocks are and have a show lead. I'll try to find some blocks and use the lead next time.

    When you first go into the forum, it's in the "English Bulldog Talk" section, where you find the Daily Poll, General Bulldog Talk, Rescue Efforts, Nutrition, Behavior & Training etc etc it is towards the bottom of that section of the forum.
