You'll find that, IMHO, the keeshond breeder community is one of the most helpful, and definitely the most active, in the game. happy :) Best of luck with Slender Chance. Dont forget to pop in and say hi once in a while.

Definitely the friendliest bunch! I have had moments where I have nothing to show or don't have luck with litters and someone is always willing to help out and help improve my kennel!

The page says "The following is a ranking of the dog breeds on ShowDog.Com based on the amount of breeders, dogs, and entries within the past month." So while we only 200-something dogs (compared to Siberians and Poodles with like 600), we have had a ton of show activity lately.

Yes, just as I thought then happy :) It's a very encouraging thing to see Keeshonds so competitive in breed standings!

Ok all, I am thinking of hosting an all breed show. However, I don't think a $5 entry fee will be worth the money it takes to put the show on. Would any of you enter a show that has an entry fee higher than $5 and if you would, what is the highest entry fee you would be willing to pay?

I am making sure I would get the entries before putting it on. I am willing to add payouts for BOB on a few breeds.

I dont usually worry about how much a show is gonna cost, as long as it has dogs I want to compete against in it, (or dogs Im trying to avoid facing in the ring NOT in it), and who the judge is. That being said, Spyte, I'll enter a show of yours no matter what the fee is. Keeshond solidarity!

I try to avoid $20 shows as much as I can. Less than that is cool with me. happy :) If it's a one time thing though I'd enter to help support.

I enter shows at all levels - $5 to $20. While I prefer the $5 shows, I often find that $20 shows are quite worthwhile if I place in group/show - the payouts justify the higher entry cost.

Are you looking to profit from sponsoring one, or just to contribute? I sponsored one a while back and broke even, but only just. I'm sure you're well aware, but remember that you only get back 20% of entry fees. I went for a show with a $400 sponsorship fee, set the entry cost at $20 and it worked alright. I still don't think that entries are at a high enough level for it to ever be profitable though.

Best of luck - you'll have my entries happy :)

I generally prefer $5 or $10 shows, although I have entered the odd $20 by accident. But if you put a show on -- I will enter whatever the entry happy :)

You just need to post the name of your show -- so I know. I am happy to enter any shows put on by Keesie breeders, but I need to know which show it is .... LOL

Price is actually the last consideration when I enter.
Judge and competition being the first.
Let me know the name of the show and my entries will be there. happy :)

I am not doing it for profit, I don't figure I will make a profit on any show really regardless of the entry fee.

I am actually doing it for two different reasons:

1. To contribute, hence the higher pay out. The payouts are higher for all placings I believe. Plus the added payouts, I'm hoping it will help a few people out.

2. I want to experiment. I have a breeder in a different breed that does this and says it's a better way to show due to the payouts and lower amount of competition. So I am entering some of those and I want to host one or two.

I will not be setting the entry fee at $20 as I feel that is a bit much. I will most likely set it at $15. If that works for everyone! I want to take you guys into consideration for this!

Speaking of creating shows, as i watch my cash balance increase (love the log in bonus btw), Im thinking of hosting a specialty. We're getting a ridiculous number of entries on even a nightly basis. Would you folks be interested?

I would absolutely be interested in a specialty and would enter Spyte's show as well.

I just bred a puppy with a 9.4 Foreq happy :)

I'm very pleased with this result! Finally results are showing from selective trait breeding.

I love all these new boys coming up for stud! I can't wait til my girls hit 30 days so I can breed!

Also, specialties are always great! I don't have anyone I would enter right now. My boy is behind SOP and a bit trait wise, so I only enter him really as a filler. I would gladly add a payout or two though happy :) Or enter the boy if we need him to make a major.

Did you know?
The figure 8 exercise requires the team to heel in a figure 8 pattern either on or off leash. Generally two of the ring stewards will assist the judge with this exercise by acting as "posts", standing 8 feet apart, that the team walks around to form the loops of the figure 8.
