Preparation and Practice Make Perfect

Showing a dog requires many variables to come together seamlessly at precisely the right moment. Today’s Best In Show Daily can help make that happen for you. First, we’ll explore the world of matches, those less-formal events that let you and your dog build some comfort in the show ring or on the performance course. Though not as popular as they once were, they serve a vital function, providing stress-free practice opportunities. But before you even get to a conformation match, in particular, you want your dog to look perfect. Social Media Maven Pilar Kuhn helps you on that front with her most recent Down and Back blog on outfitting your “dog room” for maximum efficiency. With some practice and an ideal grooming space, you’re sure to return home with some ribbons.

Friendships developed, and many people made plans to travel to shows together to lend support and have fun together. more

Grooming Done Right: The Essentials of a ‘Dog Room’
By Pilar Kuhn

The “dog room.” That’s how many of us refer to a space we’ve designated in our home for bathing, grooming and working on our dogs. Whether the room is a converted bedroom, in the garage, or a separate building, some essentials can transform your dog room from functional to ideal.

While thinking through those essentials, I couldn’t forget the overall bathing experience. I am in love with our Booster Bath. Before we had that, a bathtub with a hand-held nozzle was necessary. An elevated tub of any sort alleviates back pain. Seems to be practical for larger dogs, but smaller ones have a harder time jumping out. One of our Scotties seems to think she could be a hiker for the NFL. She tries to escape the small wash tubs we use at shows by pushing the tub away from her with her front paws. more
