Conformation is one of those activities where you MUST go to class and practice. Don’t forget to thank the judge, win or lose. And don’t think you’re going to wear pretty shoes either. Also, people in show pictures look terrible. Get used to looking at pictures of yourself looking like a zombie or 30 lbs bigger.

I recommend the following books:
Tricks of the Trade by Pat Hastings
Show Me! A Dog Show Primer by D. Caroline Coile
Mouse at the International Show
Mouse and Schumi (Engstrom) after a show.
Practicing at home.
This picture has nothing to do with conformation, except that we took it after a show. Funny, eh?
