Before dipping your toes into the world of dog shows there are a few things yu should know. There are tips and tricks to everything, and dog shows is no exception. So, firstly you need to know a few things and do your homework.
For each breed in dog shows there is what is called a breed standard. This is basically a description against which all dogs of that breed are measured. How closely you fit that description will determine if you will do OK in the ring instead of being laughed out of it.
Once you have verified that your German Rottweiler meets the standard there are other tips you need to consider. This will include some research on your part. Do you realize what else is essential knowledge before going into the ring? Go to any show and you will find lots of confusion and noise. You will see owners (or are they owners?) shaking toys and trying to work up a dog while the judge looks on. This is an effort to add some spark to the dog because many judges want to see this in a dog.
Train the dog to want to play with a specific toy and take that with you to the show. Shake it around in clowns corner and you should get the dog to pull against the lead and show off muscle tone and attitude. The judge will notice. Therefore knowing the judge will be critical to the extent you go to here. Check into the history of the judge so that you know what he or she likes. Some judges like a working dog that is fit and loves to run. Others like a more muscly dog that has more attitude. Still others might prefer a gentler more accommodating and responsive dog. Knowing this can determine if you enter and if you do it can direct you where you should be focusing on.
So your research can determine if you turn up to the show. If you decide to go anyway it will also help you to focus on areas your dog is not strong in. You may want to temper your teasing with a toy so that your dog doesnt get too excited, or you may need to do the opposite. Despite all this you may just plain like entering shows. There is nothing wrong with this. Be proud and enjoy the experience. My partner and I do this sometimes purely to stay involved. To meet other Rottweiler showers and get tips.
