Your dog loves spending time with you and what better than to start a new hobby or pastime with your canine friend? Scientific Nutritional Products takes a look at a few, fun activities you can undertake with your canine friend!
Prior to undertaking showing classes it is vital to ensure your dog is in optimum health. Health is of paramount importance, so ensure your dog is being provided a balanced, nutritious diet and undertaking plenty of exercise.
The next bridge to cross is to decide which classes to compete in! Only pedigree or pure breed dogs are able to compete in the major Kennel Club competitions as the Kennel Club sets a Breed Standard which represents the ideal conformation and characteristics for that breed. If your dog isn't a pure breed, that doesn't mean you can't enjoy showing classes, simply look up local, fun shows or you can even enter Scruffts, the cross-breeds class which began in 2000 and now held at the iconic show Crufts since 2013!
Dog showing means making sure your dog looks good! Make sure you have all the necessary supplies to groom your dog. Training is vital for the show dog. The show environment can be distracting and sometimes stressful for your canine so ensure he is well-trained in remaining focused on you. Finally remember diet can have a huge effect on the skin and coat condition, and in order to maintain healthy skin and a glossy coat, every dog requires a healthy lifestyle and nutritious diet, treating your dog from the inside out.
