Marathon Road Trips, plus When a Junior’s Bitch Comes in Season

Blogger-in-Chief Billy Wheeler is looking toward Big Sky Country where the “Montana Marathon” of shows began this Tuesday. Eight all-breed shows can test anyone’s stamina, so it’s best to be well prepared for these long distance circuits. Get Billy’s take on dog show road trips in today’s Back Story.

Showing a bitch in season is prohibited in the Junior Showmanship ring, so what does a handler do when this happens in the middle of a show circuit? DFR Blogger Kayla Bertagnolli has “been there, done that,” and she recommends always having a backup dog – or two – on standby. Find out how having a plan in place can create opportunities for discovering the charms that every dog breed has to offer.

I like to think I am use my resources efficiently. Accordingly, when I take in a dog show cluster, I usually reserve my time for those clusters that take place at one site. However, today exhibitors merrily embark on multiple site road trips. more
