The Social Life of a Show Dog
A Show Dog's Life
Show dogs need to be socialized. Temperament is an important part of any show/breeding program, so these dogs get introduced to a wide variety of situations. Exposing them to a wide variety of sounds is important. Pictured here is Chamby meeting the popcorn popper with Shannon. She is very interested in this strange thing....
Take your dogs on outings. This is Misty and Victoria at the beach and Misty, Victoria and Emily out for a day on the boat.
Meeting New Things
A WELL-groomed dog is a HAPPY dog :-)
Hey Coby, guess what...? You get to go back to your breeder for a sleepover/grooming/play date with your buddies.

My own car seat!
It has a hook for my harness so I can't jump out. I really like to see out the window and since I have to sit in back, I can see Mom while she is driving. It's lots of fun. I usually go for a ride every day. Sometimes we go to the pet store so I can meet other dogs.
