Thank you so very much Carina for this information.

As just, well not just, but as a pet owner, of course there is alot that I do not know about showing and breeding. If I am wrong about this, please let me know, additionally, at the shows there have to be so many Maltese, who have entered the show, in order to show your Maltese, does that make sense. Not sure I am explaining that correctly.

I know this is a thread about handlers, of which I just don't like to think about, but Carina did give alot of wonderful information.

One thing I did want to point out, which has nothing to do with handling , in any group, for instance pet owners, there are great pet owners, loving pet owners, and then there are those, that should only have a stuffed animal. So we wouldn't want a generalization of pet owners, when we hear of the horrific things that happen by the hands of those very same pet owners.

I would like to keep this positive, as I know in my heart, first hand, that there are breeders, who love each and every dog under their care, more than the air they breath. They enter a show, of course because they love the breed, but also because they love dearly, the dog they are showing. They experience great joy at times, just as we do as pet owners, by the love they recieve from these special babies and severe heartaches, and all in between. They are very special people. Are there alot of them, that fall into this category? I would only hope so, as I don't know every show breeder, but what I will tell you, they do exsist, and this I know first hand. So don't loose hope, in all show breeders, or paint them all with the same brush, just as they don't paint all pet owners with the same brush. It may be a very difficult task to find that loving breeder, but they are out there.

Back to the topic, as far as handlers, I just don't understand it, as it gets even deeper into the show world. What warms my heart, it so see a breeder showing their special baby, who they do love with all their heart, and I would go as far as to say, winning, is not their number one priority, of course they would love to win, but even if they don't, they love that special furbaby just as much as they always did, are so very proud of them, even if they do not win, and cherish them so very much with all their heart, and certianly are not in it for the money, as I understand, it is very expensive to show.

A breeder such as this, will forever remain in my heart.

Just thought I would share this.

Thank you so much Carina!! Since getting Dusty I have been so curious about this mysterious show world. I still don't understand it, but I'm getting there. I knew getting him that Dusty was a retired Champion, but I really had no idea what that meant, but I did know that I was VERY impressed with it and said it to EVERYBODY! Now I know a little more about it, and even more impressed with my little love bug!

I got this in an email from Dusty's first Mommy, that's fast, isn't it?
Dusty was a natural in the show ring. He finished his championship in two weekends with back to back majors from the bred by exhibitor class. He has always been so easy going and loveable, and is right where he should be, in your loving family!

Thanks Carina! For those of us new to all this, your information is extremely helpful. The Maltese Specialty show in Dallas last spring was only the 2nd show I had ever attended in my life. It's fascinating and fun, but there is SO much to learn. Thanks for helping educate us.

thank you for pinning this, helpful topic, but I am confused about this
it is a red flag when none of the dogs they have bred are shown or finished (or if they are finished they are only finished when someone else bought them and finished them).

(I should concede the point here that I do not yet have a finished dog from my own breeding, but I have only bred one litter and two of the puppies from that litter are currently in the ring and hopefully will both be finished).
So, the litter was from not shown dogs(pets) and now 2 puppies on their way to championship, correct? Are the rest puppies were sold/ gifted as a pet puppies?
Please explain as now I am confused seriously, as before I was told that if I don't show my dog/s then I could not breed them
Thank you
