    I know, eh?!

    Chances are I will be attending the dog show. I'm going to have to check the judging schedule when it's available to see when goldens are in the ring on Sunday but knowing my luck, they'll be in the ring in the afternoon which is when I'd want to check out the Expo.

    If your question was about the Halifax Kennel Club dog show, you can only bring a dog to the show if you've sent in an entry fee prior to the show's closing date which is Jan 28th. Dog must be CKC registered as well.

    Even if you just wanted to bring her to the show to walk her around, you'd still have to submit an entry fee to have her present on the show site. Even when a dog is not entered in conformation or obedience, a entry is required for what they call "exhibitioning" a dog. :happysad:

    Definitely check out the Doggie Expo. Your girl would have lots of fun socializing with all the other pups!

    At a dog show, owners/handlers aren't too keen about dogs socializing with one another anyways since the dogs are either all groomed up to go into the conformation ring or are busy being worked just before entering the obedience ring. Distractions from other dogs are usually not well received so your girl would probably end up bored just standing around.
