The exhibition of poodles is always a holiday for professionals and amateurs. Where else can one find so many clean, beautifully trimmed poodles of all kinds and colors? For the exhibition of poodles are prepared especially carefully.
The best poodles are remembered by all their grace, elegant appearance, beautiful ring-dressure, balanced and friendly character. Every poodle must feel at least once what ring wrestling, success and defeat are. And the sooner it comes out, the greater the likelihood of success.
In order for the poodle with the greatest effect to be shown at the exhibition, the dog must be prepared in advance. It should be cleaned, washed, combed and, of course, trimmed. In order for a poodle to comply with the requirements of the breed standard in all respects, it must be in better condition. If a dog has an extra mass, you need to keep it on a diet, walk more with it, and if it does not have the necessary mass, feed it.
Showing and walking are very important for the evaluation of the poodle. Poodle must be accustomed to calmly behave at an exhibition among strangers and noisy dogs before and after the call to the ring. It is equally important to maintain composure and the owner himself. Even with the failure that has befallen you, you should still show your dog that you are happy.
Many of the poodles with their impressionable kind remember negative emotions and are subsequently intimidated by the upcoming viewing, show themselves badly and receive correspondingly lower marks than they deserve.
The dog must be without medals and tokens, in a light collar on a leash. If the exhibition lasts a long time, then you should have a flask with water and a few pieces of treat for the dog to keep it in good spirits. With you need to bring your dishes and accessories for the care of hair.
To pass the examination at the exhibition, poodles are recorded by sex and age into the following classes: puppy class - 6-9 months; junior class - 9-18 months; open class - 15 months - 8 years, if the dog already had a rating not lower than "very good"; class winners - 15 months - 10 years for dogs with titles; veteran class: 1) over 8 years old with no titles; 2) over 10 years old with titles.
By decision of the exhibition committee, another class is possible - the class of poodles of unknown origin - 1 year - 9 years. Dogs of this class of awards and prizes do not receive and do not participate in competitions.
Examination of dogs is carried out by a special judicial brigade during daylight hours of the day, separately by sex and age groups in specially equipped rings. After the announcement of the number of your dog, it is displayed in the ring. First, an inspection of the teeth.
Here the owner must properly expose the dog's teeth for examination by an expert. Then all dogs are evaluated at rest and in motion, all the advantages and disadvantages of the exterior are described.
According to the results of the examination, the following marks can be given: "excellent", "very good", "good" and "satisfactory". The marks "excellent" and "very well" are awarded to dogs that fully comply with the breed standard, with a pronounced sex type, a characteristic constitution, developed bones and muscles, anatomically correctly folded, with the correct head and set of limbs.
Single defects that do not affect breeding work are permissible. "Good" is given to a dog with a typical breed for the breed, but having no more than two defects. The rating "satisfactory" is also evaluated for dogs with a typical breed for the breed, but with several flaws or more than two defects that make them unsuitable for breeding work. All other dogs with traits testifying to the eccentricity remain without evaluation.
At the same time, medals can be awarded to dogs: “excellent” - a large gold medal, “very good” - a small gold medal, “good” - a silver medal.
In the final rings special prizes are awarded and honorary titles are awarded: the best junior of the exhibition (male and female), the best big poodle (male and female), the best male, best female, the best poodle of the exhibition, as well as titles: young champion, winner, champion multiple champion. Owners receive exhibition diplomas.
