Can you enter a dog in obedience and conformation at the same show and still have good results in both?

I think you will find that doing both affects the dog's performance in obedience trials. It won't do as well, and there will be a note on the dog's obedience result saying something along the lines, that the "dog had a lot on today". I don't remember the exact wording as it happened to me quite a few years ago now.

I don't know if it affects the dog in the conformation ring.

I get that saying a lot too, I usually do both with my dogs in RL so I do them both on Showdogs too! Then when they are too old to show(on here) I've been doing obedience with them to give them something to do LOL

I don't know if there is a "proper" number of dogs to enter, or a "proper" way of doing both and I can't find any rules on it??

I dabbled in obedience with some specials before.

If you enter in obedience and an allbreed, you should be fine. I found obedience was affected if I entered a specialty, allbreed, and obedience in the same night.

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.
