The Fast Track to Dog Show Success

74 – October, 2018

By Sandy Weaver (with apologies to Dr. Seuss)

A dog show – dog show – oh, please can we go?
“Why yes – how fun – I did not know
A show with dogs was happening today.
Let’s grab our dog and go learn how to play
This game of ‘dog show’ and win it – hurray!”

Oh, dear – I fear that Nellie and Nick
Could have their excitement cut to the quick.
Sometimes you win on your very first try…
Most times you don’t – it’s ok, don’t cry!
Just follow along with this silly rhyme
And you’ll be a winner – really, in no time!

What’s the first thing you need to win at dog shows?
Here’s a hint – it doesn’t trot around on its toes.
It doesn’t need bathing or feeding or vetting.
It doesn’t need crates, tack, bait or bedding.
It doesn’t need shampoo, combs, brushes or ex-ing…
What could it be? This riddle is vexing!
The first thing you need, dear winner-to-be,
Is a big appetite for learning, you see.

Before you run out and get a show dog
Take a moment – a breath – a long dialogue
Quite a few, actually, and in person is best.
Kennel visits – lots of them – a real knowledge-quest.
Already know the dog breed that you’re craving?
Pick the brains of the breeders
Who’re genetic road-paving.
