Puppy Show

"Come here Jasper, come."

You have to tie up the command with a simple action and tone of voice for better recall. That's what I got from one of my readings.

Jasper is a fine dog, though a bit aggressive for my standard.

While still a puppy, we knew he would do well in the dog shows. So how old should a pup be for him to enter an official dog show?

In our case, the dog should have the necessary vaccines, at least the "anti-rabies". This is a requirement.

Then, the dog should have the courage and the ability to walk inside the ring. This can be done with some training and practice. It should also be able to mingle with other dogs and people.

It must allow the judge to open his mouth without the threat of biting. If possible the dog should also be able not to pee or otherwise inside the ring while he is on show.

Seems like grooming is not so much a factor at a young age, aside from the basic of having a clean dog.

Usually, to get the above skills, the dog is about 4 to 5 months old.

The puppy category is for puppies up to 6 months old. Beyond that age, the dog enters the adult dog category.
