Does anyone here show their dogs, or know anyone who does?? Where I live (British Columbia) there are hardly any bulldogs who are shown according to a couple breed clubs, and I might have to show Max in Washington State.

My breeder recommended that I give the show ring a try (I think I made a post about this a while back).

Well, I went to the vet last week, and (without me mentioning anything about it), the vet said that my puppy has excellent structure/conformation, and thinks he would do really well from his personality as well, and she suggested that I show him too. My vet said that he also has an amazing pallet, and large nostrils (for breathing).

I was contemplating getting a proffesional handler, but I think I want to show him myself, because I think it would be a really fun experience. I'm also going to be getting him involved in therapy work training as soon as he's old enough. We start handling classes next month, but I am really in need of a "bully mentor", because most of the people from that club have other breeds.

So if anyone could help me out it would be GREATLY appreciated!!!! :)

Vertes, regarding your question...what type of bulldog do you have? English or American?

That would definitley help answer your question. :D

Very impressive Lisa, and GORGEOUS dog!!! :)

I have an English Bulldog......so far I know of only 2 other English Bulldogs who compete around here. I know there are a few who come down here from Washington State on occasion to a few shows. I have the number of one of the other EB handlers here, and am going to call it, but I guess I'm going to have to see how helpful she will be willing to be, LOL. I know there are a LOT more EBs who are shown in Washington....and my dog is AKC registered, but I don't know if it would be really hard to show him in Washington because of the very frequent traveling I would have to do, and crossing the border (which takes over an hour a lot of the time), and I have a 1 year old, and a workaholic hubby, LOL. I'm VERY determined now to show him, but I just need to figure out what would be the best avenue to take. I kind of want to do shows here, but it might take two decades to get a championship if we were to keep attending shows that wouldn't count for any points, LOL.

lol, just saw this post , sorry. Vertes3, i would recommend going to a couple of shows , akc/ckc, to get an idea of what is required of your dog. honestly, there is not much to conformation showing. if your dog is conformationally correct and sound that is all the judge should be looking at. sadly there are alot of politics in the show ring so that is not always the case.
is your dog ckc registered as well? there are ckc show almost every weekend in the season, you may need to travel a bit depending on where you are but the chances are you will find a few fairly close to home thru out the summer. the eb stack is just a basic square stack so nuthin to difficult. if you like, email me any questions and i will see if i can be of any help :)

LMAO What ever. I do show and have finished dogs, sounds like your the crap talker..lol Would kind of be the reason Venom has CH in front of his name, that means CH, but hey I'm just another crap talker :roll:

To the OP. I don't have English Bulldogs, but I'd recommend checking out a few shows for yourself and finding someone locally who shows to help you out. Are you going to do UKC or AKC? You can ask questions, see how things are done and find a close mentor by checking out a couple of shows.

Yap I have a few shows lined up I'm planning to go to here this month (just for viewing)....and handling training classes next month (for me and my pupp). We still have to order Max's pedigree to get CKC registration too, and right now he is only AKC....we can still compete before we get his CKC finalized, but will have to pay a fee.

What I am mostly intimidated by is after I talked to this one guy from an all breed club here he said that it might take a long time to get a championship in Canada for a bulldog......he also said that "bulldogs weren't his cup of tea", and to "try to find shows with judges who have a tendency to really like the non-sporting group". I guess I'm pretty much going to have to just dive in, and learn as I go. So pretty much we can register for shows, and not have any bulldogs show up, and then not get any points regardless of how well he could have done.

Attitude I'm going to definetly email you to try to figure out how to stack Max best and get some practice even before our classes.....because I don't know how well the classes will really help us, seeing as from the sounds of it there aren't any bulldogs, and given the bulldogs unique shape, I'm sure that the best way to stack them is different, right??

nope, it is a basic squared up stack. i think the hardest thing with an eb is getting your pace right to make his look good. i will have a look around and see what i can find here that would help you out

Okay...I had read that it was back close and the front apart, and thought that would look a bit odd, LOL. I'm going to study some pics of some champs!

Ya I figured getting a good pace would be hard. Bulldogs don't look the best when they are sprinting either, LOL.....and pretty much they are either wadling, or sprinting (with their gowls flapping around, LOL). I'm going to start trying to pace him along with my daughters stroller, and try to see what looks best, and then try to get him used to that pace. LUCKILY he already usually likes walking on the left side, which makes things easier!!!

Thanks!!! :)

You said no one here shows their dogs, I am showing you otherwise.

You got something better to show us?

Oh look! It's an "American Bully"!

OOPS sorry, different POS.

My apologies, but the resemblance was just uncanny! :lol: (If you can dish it out, be prepared to take it)

What exactly does that mean? Don't think flag football or your winnings is relavent to whether or not people show... :scratch:


Anyway I've never seen a CKC show, I assume its similar to the shows here in the US? Are the standards pretty similar for the breeds?

I have one at the end of this month. I have a few that should finish this year they are pretty close, we have the show this month, a double show and Nationals left for this year.

I also have this female I want to finish bad, she is almost halfway there but I think if she places really well like she has so far she could finish this year. She has placed every show, so its always possible.





Guess these are the first pics I've posted on here. I guess I should post some in the gallery section.
