I show my dogs in both AKC and UKC. Although there are more AKC shows available, I typically like the UKC shows better. If I am showing by myself, I typically show my dogs in Mississippi, Louisiana, or Alabama. If I am showing with my friend and co-breeder, then I typically show in Texas, closer to her.

I really want to start doing barn hunt, but it seems as if I run out of time. I have a natural for it. My little Johnny is a mouser extraordinaire and keeps the rodents out of the goats' food. For a six pound dog, he's scary fast!

I'm based in the uk, so uk kc. My breed is on import register (like fss in akc). Don't show too much no adays as dog nearing 10yrs. My other breed cannot be exhibited as there's no breed standard published in the uk, however can enter field tests. Neither of my RL breeds are on Showdog.com

Have taken the last 2 yrs. off to raise my youngest daughter, and to make sure my son has a good yr. in kindergarten, but i'm hoping to get to some showing soon

Panic Station, what are your breeds? I have an English shepherd as one of my breeds, which can't be shown in AKC and a Teddy Roosevelt terrier, which has just moved out of the FSS into Miscellaneous. The rest of my dogs are Toy Fox Terriers. I don't know that any of them are recognized in the UK.

Must say have only heard of English Shepherds which occasionally show up on the agility circuit.
My breeds are Bavarian Mountain Hound and Small Munsterlander, think both are FSS and in both the show dog world is a bit of a taboo topic worldwide. I do see more and more SM in the States take part in obedience and agility though.

English shepherds are more of a landrace than a breed, although they are recognized by the United Kennel Club over here. It is unlikely that they will ever be recognized by the AKC, at least not in my lifetime, as the current breeders want nothing to do with conformation shows. The dogs being shown in UKC are often pulled from the fields, bathed, and brought to shows for conformation evaluation. I'm going to do the same with Panda, my girl, in the spring. I'm going to get her hips evaluated as soon as I can afford to do so and have started getting various tests toward breeding her. happy :)

I have Cairn Terriers, based in Canada so Canadian Kennel Club. My girl Luna is #1 Cairn in breed in Canada this year, completely breeder/owner handled (proud mama!)
Between myself and my co-breeder we've been down to the States to show AKC a bit too. Luna just needs 3 more singles to finish her AKC championship hoping to get those in 2020 before we plan babies. happy :)

@Sukai Kennel, I wish I could get more involved with barn hunt. I have a couple of dogs that would be amazing at it, but I would have to go all the way to New Orleans (about 2 hours) or past Monroe (about 4.5 hours) to train my dogs or to compete. New Orleans is about as close as it gets for most kind of training, I'm afraid.

@Picardy, that's so cool about your Luna! Congrats! I don't get north much any longer, but I wish I could meet you and see your dogs. I love Cairns! However, I have a theory that if I went that far north, my Deep South blood might just freeze solid in my veins . . . wink ;)

Your picture has to have a link. SD.com uses markup to post pictures, not html. So, if you wanted to post a picture of your dog, it would be:

[img*]hostingsite.com/mydogimage.jpg[*/img]

I believe they are from the same landrace of dogs, Azawakh. English shepherds have slightly different heads than border collies and they have a different manner of interacting with the stock, having a looser eye and being adaptable to both herding and guarding. They also have fewer coat colors than border collies. I have heard ES described as being BCs with an "off switch" and I think it's a good description.

Hi, For about 20 years I used to show WHWT and usually had between 6-10 adults and a couple of youngsters coming on.
We always had a choc Lab or two as well. Living in a very remote area in a far corner of Wales and with a young family I couldnt get many Championship/Crufts qualifying shows and sometimes qualified anmd usually placed at breed Speciality shows.

We did well at Open shows often with very hot competition. I loved it and all my days were dominated by the dogs. I had to re home almost all of them in 2005 during a long illness which was very sad, I was on my 7th generation.
I'm retired now and we have Bailey, honestly the funniest and most entertaining dog. He's a 3 yr old Cav x Brittany rescue and the light of our lives that came to us in August. We were nearly a whole year without a dog after our very last home bred Lab passed away. My showing days are over now, but I still go to watch when I can.

I love how many people are here that show in RL. happy :)

I've been breeding and showing (American) Cocker Spaniels for over 35 years. Located in Pennsylvania and competing in AKC mostly. Although I have played some in UKC and International shows which I thought were wonderful and fun. I have always done my own handling and even did a little for others a long while back.

While playing SD I focus mostly on Borzoi. I had one as a teen. Even showed him some. But alas he wound up not good enough.

Happy showing!
