You need to prepare the Riesenschnauzer for the exhibition as best you can. - after all, a carefully groomed dog will always look good and it may happen that during the examination it will be put in front of a little better than a folded but not groomed competitor.
Before taking part in the exhibition, you should remember a few simple rules and try to follow them.
The exhibition is a beauty contest and often good dogs get low marks only because the owners have failed to properly prepare and display them. To avoid this, it is necessary, first of all, to study the standard of the breed of your dog. We must remember the perfect dogs does not happen, so you should soberly assess the exterior data of the dog and compare them with the standard. Knowing the shortcomings of the animal, we must try to hide them with the help of special training and competent trimming. Such little tricks will not deceive an expert, but your pet will greatly benefit compared to others.
We must teach the schnauzer the right behavior in the ring. Many owners are proud of the fact that their dog rushes at any person passing by believing this to be a sign of anger. However, most often it is the first sign of a bad breed dog. The judge has the right to remove from the ring the dog, which does not allow itself to be examined. Therefore, it is necessary to teach a dog to show teeth and complete submission to its owner from puppyhood.
We must remember that the judge has the right to independently examine the bite of the dog, check the quality of wool and take the necessary measurements. The dog is obliged by the owner's command to calmly refer to these procedures. Next, it is necessary to teach the rizenschnauzer the right movements in the ring and the ability to stand in a beautiful exhibition stand.
It is necessary to begin training from the first months of life, since it is much more difficult to teach an adult dog. In order to accustom the dog to the correct movements in the ring, it is necessary from the first months of life to drive it on walks on a harness or a tight leash.
The dog must move ahead of the owner at a constant speed. At the same time, it is necessary to ensure that the dog does not arch its back while moving, moving smoothly without jerks with a good push of the hind limbs. In addition to driving on a leash, running a bike is very useful.
It is necessary to teach the dog to run at a trot next to the bike on a leash at a constant speed. Such training should begin at about ten months, when the puppy is completely strong and can withstand greater physical exertion. At the same time gradually increase the run time, speed and distance. The last thing that is required of a dog in the ring is the ability to demonstrate the correct exterior rack.
At first, the puppy is trained to simply stand with its head held high. The back should be straight, slightly sloping towards the tail, the front legs should be vertical and straight, the rear legs should be moderately set back. Initially, the puppy is installed in this position at home in front of the mirror, where it is easier to control how correctly and beautifully he stands.
Then they gradually teach the Giant Schnauzer to take the desired position on the team and save it the required time in any place and with various extraneous stimuli. Be sure to teach the dog so that you can, if necessary, correct the rack. We hope that our advice will help you to experience less frustration on the day your pet enters the ring.
