Hi there,

I was just curious how you get started showing an English Bulldog? We don't want to breed him necessarily (actually we are sure it's something we would never do), but would still love to do something with him....is it just silly to show him, but not breed him? Should we just strictly keep him as our family companion, and not bother showing him? His dad did very well in the ring, and he has really great pedigree, he's gorgeous, and I think it would be really fun to get into. I know this breed is definetly not the most active, but I still think it would be good to get him engaged in something!?!

What do you all think??

I totally agree Angie!! I think the only way I would even consider becoming a breeder personally is if I had like over 15 years experience with EBs, and my daughter was grown so I could really have the time to dedicate, and even still it would have to be something I thought long and hard about. I know that from even just looking for our EB there is a lot of ugly that goes on, and there is no way I would ever contribute to that. There are a lot of great breeders out there, but a lot of really aweful too.

I think that showing him could be a lot of fun though.....as long as he turns out to be the type of dog that strives off of it, but if he doesn't emjoy it as well then I wouldn't push the issue, LOL. I wonder how many people show just for the sake of showing though??

I think I have heard of for fun shows for mix breed dogs even, so maybe there are some just for fun ones (I kind of doubt that they would be easy to find though)??
Carrie, thanks for the tips, and that therapy work sounds like a GREAT idea, and I'm going to check into it for sure!!! I'm not to sure what they have for it around here, but I'm sure there must be something? I don't know about rally for an English bulldog though, does that actually exist? I guess I still have a few months to think about what we should do. Thanks for the tips! :)

LMAO...."My EB, Shrek, is an athletic little turd..always on the go..sometimes I wish i could nail his paws to the floor!". Carrie, I just think you have super dogs!!! Girl, what have you been feeding them?? LOL. :lol:

Where do you go to find agility/rally-o for EBs?? I don't know if too many other pure bred EBs would be able to keep up with Shrek? Is there actually agility, and rally competitions for EBs to compete against eachother in?
