    Go to Dogs Queensland and you will find out all the necessary rules and regulations for showing.

    But in a nut shell yes the dogs need to be on the full register and you will also need to be a member of Dogs Queensland.

    You can find out when the shows will be held (via the website) and go along and have a look for yourself to find out what it all entails.

    Yes. CCCQ.

    There are papers and then there is the question of whether the dog is registered.

    The dog may still be registered in the breeders name? Look at the registration papers and it will tell you.

    At the top Certificate of Registration and Pedigree

    Name: Breeders prefix and a name given to the dog & the dogs Reg. No.

    Breed:

    Sex:

    Date of Birth:

    Colour:

    Dogs family tree

    Then down the bottom it will have

    Bred by:
    Date Registered
    Issued by:
    Date Issued:
    Registered Owner: Now what is the name in there.
    Date issued:

    If you got these Registration Papers, did you & the breeder sign the other side to transfer the dog into your own name?

    Did you become a member and receive a monthly magazine?

    When I sold my pet puppies I sold them on the Limited Register which is a different colour to main register and indicates that the dog should not be bred or shown (not to say I couldn't change that if I wanted to, though there is a time limit). I signed the paperwork on the back so that the new owner could transfer the dog into their name. Each and everyone of my new owners showed no interest in transferring the papers. That's fine.

    But my obligation & the obligation of all breeders is to register all puppies, explain to the new owners what type of registration the puppy is on & how they can transfer the puppy into their name. It also gives the new owner a brief family tree.

    Hope this all makes sense.

    The other one all depends on the papers really and if it is a good specimen and is within the breed standard.

    Even though you have full papers for a dog doesn't necessarily mean you should show them in my opinion. Some breeders (incl. BYB) sell all their puppies on main register with NO considerations as to if they are good showing specimens. They do it because their puppies will be easier to sell.

    Could you show us some good body, head, standing etc pictures of the puppy you are considering showing please. Are you sure this pupy has perfect scissor bite?
    Yes I am aware that Neyla cannot be shown, will get the pics of the other dog when i get home from work.

    Are there any SBT Clubs that i could join to learn more?

    I'm a member of the Gordon Setter Club of NSW
    and the Whippet Club of NSW

    I'm sure if you google something along the lines of Queensland SBT Club or SBT of Queensland something will come up or phone the CCCQ and ask them.

    Hi Shadowstaff

    If you can't show, maybe you could do dog sports of some sort. I know a couple of staffies that do agility, they LOVE it.

    And there's tracking and lure coursing and dog strength tests - weight pulling and obedience and agility and fly ball and frisbee and doggy dancing sometimes called "canine freestyle".

    And more, though it's hard to tell from google what is going on in QLD.

    Frosty and I tried something called Rally-O which was like obedience but there were signs instead of a judge making calls, and you followed the signs to complete the course. Frosty found it pretty easy. I was an unco treat spilling butterfoot. It would certainly make basic obedience training more fun.

    In pommieland they have musical chairs with dogs, a thing called "take", "hold" & "drop" where the dog has to drop a designated toy (provided by the judge), on a $100 note under instruction from the owner seated on a chair. Nearest drop wins. Now there's a challenge.

    Personally I'd much rather do a sport like agility than a kind of beauty contest like breed shows. Not that I could do a breed show - cos my dog is a desexed bitza.
