(*  – recommended)

Common misunderstanding in dog showing is that you need to have pedigree dog to show him. That is not true. For pedigree dog shows only pedigree dogs can be entered – true,  BUT… there is plenty of companion dog shows around with novelty classes, where you can enter even your 12-year-old crossbreed on the day of the event! And there is really not necessary to go to the dog groomer before.. it is for fun, so enjoy it!

Here are popular classes in companion (also known as novelty, fun, exception) dog shows  (the most popular in bold):

  • Most Handsome Dog,
  • Prettiest Bitch,
  • Waggiest Tail,
  • Most Appealing Eyes,
  • Best Veteran Over 6 Years,
  • Best Rescue,
  • Best Mover,
  • Best Trick,
  • Best Dog in Fancy Dress,
  • Dog with the Most Appealing Expression,
  • Best Conditioned Dog,
  • Best Conditioned Bitch,
  • Best Young Handler (usually child under 16 years old),
  • Best Child Handler (usually child under 12 years old),
  • Best Adult Handler,

Variety of Scurries

Scurries (source: The Gundog Club website)

Gundog Scurries are usually a test of speed. As long as the dog obeys the general rules of the test, the fastest dog wins. However, they are also a test of control, obedience and training and of the ability of the dog to use its initiative.

Scurry - The dog has to retrieve two marked (seen) dummies. The dummy thrower attracts the dogs attention and throws each dummy into a prescribed area. The dog is sent and has to bring one of the dummies back to the handler who is waiting within a designated area i.e. behind a line, before repeating the process for the second dummy.

Pick and Mix – The dog has to retrieve a specified number of marked and concealed dummies (usually two marked and two out of three blinds). The handler is told where the unseen dummies are hidden. Again, the dog has to bring the dummies back to the handler within the marked out area.

There are a number of variations on this theme which may include retrieving from water or from within partridge pens (involving a low jump over a fence in and out of the pen) or with the temptation of a “bolting rabbit” (a dummy on a piece of elastic) crossing the path of the dog on the way out, or on the return.

Steeplechase – The dog has to retrieve a dummy thrown at the end of a row of jumps (usually straw bales with a barrier either side to create a “race”). Usually the dummy is dropped into the end “compartment” but sometimes two dummies are thrown into two different compartments. If the dog collects the first dummy from the nearest compartment, it has to go beyond that point to the next compartment on the second run and not waste time looking where it found the first dummy.

Bulldog – Usually a single straight long retrieve fired from a dummy launcher. Variations can include two dummies to retrieve and brash (a heap of leafy branches) to be negotiated on the way to the dummy (which most spaniels will want to stop and search!)

Other tests include a greater measure of control and require the dog to be handled on to the retrieve. For example, snooker or a clockface, which requires the dog to retrieve dummies in a prescribed order from amongst other dummies.

Sometimes a mock test is included where the dog has to perform a number of exercises, walking closely to heel, recovering a memory retrieve, retrieving a blind with a distraction such as gunshot and another dummy thrown across the path of the returning dog.

Often a dog and gun test also appears on the programme where the dog has to remain steady whilst the handler attempts to hit a number of clays and then the dog is sent to retrieve dummies.

    Please, if you wish to rehome your dog, do not advertise as “Free to good home”. Sadly people involved in dog fighting look for these ads and the dog might be used to “train” fighting dogs or might simply be sold. Not everyone who looks genuine can be trusted. Always ask for a cash sum similar to that required by adoption centres – you can always give the money to a dog rescue centre if you prefer not to profit from rehoming your dog.

    My company provides DNA test kits for mixed breed dogs. I am a qualified dog behaviourist and I write a personal behaviour profile based on the results of the test. If anyone knows of any companion dog shows or fundog shows in the South of England I would love to attend with my trade stand. Please get in touch.

  14. V. Orcutt says:

    I have two German Shepherds…one of them is just insane over this toy…the other likes it but doesn’t go crazy over it. The only problem with this ball is that even the large size is small enough to get rolled or pushed underneath furniture.

    Anyway, I decided to head that problem off by putting it inside the “Tug-a-jug” toy that neither dog was particularly impressed with. Inside, with little treats, it’s double the fun and doesn’t get lost beneath the furniture and both dogs like the combination of Babble Ball and Tug-a-Jug toy.

    Like someone else said, the ball is hard plastic and looks like it can stand up to some very hard play for a long time.

    Lots of fun for dogs and humans!!!

    PS…Actually, it’s pretty funny when the ball is inside the jug and the little voice says, “Let me out of here!”

  15. Charlene Dunlap says:

    As someone committed to engaging and challenging my own dogs, I found Kyra Sundance’s new book “101 Dog Tricks” a marvelous addition to my library. I highly recommend it to anyone wishing to have fun with their dog: there are easy to advanced tricks to amuse friends or to entertain huge audiences as does Kyra and her Weimaraner Chalcy. Kyra’s book covers a wide range of tricks with colored photos of each step in the teaching process. This book is exceptionally well done and is superior to the average trick training books on the market. The photography throughout the book is alone worth the price.

  16. Brian says:

    This book is wonderful. A friend of mine who lives in England ordered it for me, as Victoria Stilwell has a dog training TV show (‘It’s Me or the Dog’) over there that started around the same time as Cesar Millan’s Dog Whisperer show here. Apparently, the show is coming to Animal Planet in the US in April.

    First of all, the book is beautiful. Could be a coffee table book in its own right considering the beautiful photography and layout. It’s presented so that you can flip around from chapter to chapter as needed, which is nice for a dog training book. I’d recommend reading it all the way through first, though, as you get a real sense of her philosophy that way.

    Which is the best thing about the book. The whole concept is to try to get us dog owners to view things from a dog’s point of view and understand the reasons behind the behavior we’re trying to change in our dogs. She still says to treat the dog like an animal and not a child, but it really opened my eyes about how and why certain things were happening, and I feel like my relationship with my dog (which was great before I read it) is even better now. It’s like discovering there’s another plane from which you can view things. Very positive-reward-based training methods which have worked wonders for us so far. Really easy to read yet intelligently presented.

    My friend in England says Victoria is the biggest name in dog training there now because of her show, and after reading her book, I can see why. Good for dog lovers or dog owners. Even if you’ve got everything sorted out between you and your dog, you’ll love this book, as it’s truly a celebration of dogs and our relationship with them, as well as a fantastic training tool. A must for all dog people!!!

    Hi

    Could you tell me how much it would cost to set up a stall?

  20. Kym says:

    Hello, I just wanted to say that this site is excellent! Do you know if the shows will be updated for 2011? As I am a professional artist who specialises in hand painted pets on quality organic polos shirts and t-shirts, I am keen to set-up a stall at the shows as there is a lot of interest in my work.

    Hi there,
    My local club is running a dog on 19th sept. how much do you sell your pics for?
    Regards

  26. Hi,

    I have seen your lists of shows being offered, and think that is a great service to be offering.

    I myself am a professional animal photographer, and am looking to get into the Dog Agility / Obedience market. If you know of any shows, who would like to a professional photographer in attendance, offering prints for sale, and also for the organisers public relations use, please let me know. Its cheaper than you may think, and if a certain number of sales are made, the club or charity will receive a portion of the takings.

    Thanks

    Drew
