All in All I'm so proud of Ajax, the way he coped with his very first show though he was totally over it by the end of the classes and did his normal tricks of falling over himself and laying upside down on the grass. He met so many of the WSSDCA members and made lots of doggy friends. He worked exceptionally well in the obedience though we are still in Advanced Beginners class here in WA. He proved he could work at a much higher standard.
Show Preparation: August 2011
The first show that we are going to attend is the 10th National Annual Dog show held by the White Swiss Shepherd Dog Club of Australia to be in Lancefield Victoria on 13th November 2011.
I have been given show 'training' by another friend, Margaret M, a judge and borzoi owner, who has had me standing, running laps and above all - smiling in the judge's direction.
Trying to practise at home without the expert eye of our 'judge' is quite difficult - will I ever master the stance? Isn't his head on crooked?
