You have a star at home

You have been told that your young Border may shine, but both you and your four legged friend need to learn about etiquette in the show ring, grooming, stripping, and how to get the best from your young dog without tiring him, boring him to death or frightening him. A show ring is not the natural habitat of a Border terrier, but in the current political climate his natural working abilities are extremely limited, so he has to learn new tricks.

You have read the available handbooks while researching for your chosen breed, so you will be aware of the top winners, and will have looked at the photographs showing winning dogs prepared for the show ring. That is your objective.
