    Default How to get into showing?

    We have our best friend "Sancho" with full registration and am just curious how we would begin getting into showing. He is currently 7 mths. We absolutely love the breed because of him and would love to get the experience showing allows. Any advice for a newbie?

    Join your local bulldog group. Or look on AKC website for local group. They can help you as well as doing B-matchs before larger show as well as conformation classes.

    Go to local shows and talk to owners and handlers. I will tell you it can be intimidating and it's very political but don't let that detour you. There are some really nice folks out there who have been doing bulldogs longer than I been alive and they are a wealth of knowledge.

    As @karmasworld said find a bulldog club in your area or go to some dog shows and talk with the show breeders there and ask them if they know anyone putting on a conformation class and go to some to learn how to show and get some tips on how to walk and make your bully look great to the judge. Sign up for some B matches to get some experience and most of all, just have some fun.

    I agree with @Davidh! I have never shown bulldogs, but did show a much larger breed for a while. It's a lot of fun if you don't take it too seriously. I am very competitive and had a difficult time when my beautiful dog didn't win. But I met many wonderful people who taught me much about my breed--people who I still talk to on a regular basis. As David said, have fun with it!
