A dog you are excited about does exceptionally terrible in shows?

Or worse, your duds surprise you? Darn those hidden decimals.

I have a dog like that right now, I thought she would blow away the competition, but she hasn't. LOL

I haven't run into any show duds yet, my peeve is when high SOP/good trait dogs end up being terrible producers! I've got one girl who used to be the high SOP of the breed and she hasn't yet produced a pup within 0.2 range of herself... Maybe it's my pick in studs, but you'd think there would've been at least a few good pups among the 5+ breedings I've done. razz :p Meanwhile her much lower SOP sister has produced pups 0.6 over her own SOP. It perplexes me lol.

I've noticed there's this glitch that makes 9.9 heads virtually non-existent. So they show up as either 9.8 or 10 so in the breeds where heads have a high importance the SOP of any dog with a 9.8 or 10 head that has in reality more of a 9.9 head would be quite different...

I've had girls who shockingly don't produce well at all, too... I give them three tries and FHed they go!

And about decimals, I am working to 10 heads too and I'm sure it is true since 10.2 is all I can get to.

Did you know?
The sit for exam is a modified version of the Stand for Exam. It is generally used in novice level classes and requires the handler to order the dog to sit and then to move away from the dog the length of the leash. The judge will then approach the dog and pet the dog's head.
