[MENTION=17222]Chevysmom[/MENTION] I know you want to show-so it may be a requirement to join. Can't help with that,but those clubs are usually political bullsh* whether it be horses mules, donkeys,or dogs. Backbiting,jealousy. I have been in them all,and they are all the same-just replace the animal! But I do wish you luck in whatever you want to do!

I agree! I've never seen such horrible behavior when I was a member of a kennel club. You shouldn't need to be a member to show, but your dog must be registered with the AKC. Does your breeder show their dogs? They can probably help you. I can't imagine needing a sponsor to join, but it's possibly because there are so many disreputable breeders of bulldogs.

I think if you keep the right attitude it could be a blast.... I always showed my dogs/mutts/ whatever I had at the time while growing up.. I never entered a show (well, because they were mutts lol) but I would teach each and every one to 'stand' correctly, trot around th yard or house with me, and If I had been able to enter the ring, I would have been very proud at whatever the outcome... Get a kick out of it, and stay out of the yucky part if ya can... enjoy :)

I surely agree :) I could have never shown just because of types of people there are to deal with, but if you can,,, all the power to ya! And!!! what really fun is agility! I didn't find snoots in that one... Dogs LOVE it and it's so good for their minds and bodies ..(.though you may have a lazy pup) and don't start too early as it can be rough on their joints and stuff.. Obedience is another fun one... I never entered anything, but I had shih tzus that excelled in the agility... I was too anxiety ridden/shy etc to go into the ring but ohhhhhh how I loved to practice...

Me and Chevy r training in obidence now because he is anything but lazy and I try to channel his explosive energy into something positive so he doesn't get him self into trouble as he often does when he gets board but he is still a pup n has the attention span of a nat and he is very bully so he only wants to do it when he wants to lol but we have a few commands down pat like sit ,down,paw,stand we r working on heel now but that is proving to be tough but now someday he may get a little older and get better with his commands and that may be just the thing for us

[MENTION=17222]Chevysmom[/MENTION] you do not need to be a member of any club to show your bully. Some clubs are very political, and some members are very clicky. I am a member of the Bulldog Club of Texas, everyone there is so friendly and helpful. Also a Member of The Bulldog Club of America, and The French Bulldog Club of America. Both clubs have some political people, but for the most part most are very helpful and friendly. I wouldn't worry about joining right now especially if you are not breeding. If you still want to then find out when and where the Kentuckians bulldog club meets and if you can got to the meetings and meet everyone. If you find they are a cool bunch, they will help you join and then one of them will sponsor you for the BCA.

Wow....clubs are what people put into them, and what they get out of it.
