Bully Shows

Discussion in 'American Bully' started by WorkingBullTerrier, Mar 14, 2014.

  1. Well, I am accustomed to ADBA shows. However, with my newest acquisition....I have CONSIDERED possibly attending a "Bully" show in a few months. Are there any pointers I should know? Does anyone have pics they'd share of how these events are usually set up? I'm just trying to be prepared. This is a whole new realm for me. Thanks in advance.

  3. Well, I suppose it'd be ABKC. I still have to get her registered through them, as she is ADBA registered right now.....
     
  4. i know this is an old post but i thought i would put my experience in. i go to the ABKC show a lot i go because i show my dogs and i actually handle dogs for people who dont know how to show, i love the American Bully breed because of my dogs and the community i chose to surround my self in but going to these shows is a realization on how sad this breed has become most of the people that attend a ABKC show dont actually show there dogs they are there to show off and post there dogs up with other dogs for a photo shoot.
    most of the people that attend are a perfect example of a stereotype bully owner... they dont have any control of there dogs who are mostly fearful aggressive and the people on the end of the leash have no idea what the term "dog behavior" means ... but other then that its not hard to look like a rock star if you dog walks on a leash and is somewhat polite. If you show and you know a little bit about handling it will help set a standard for those that want to show or starting to show there dogs

    These shows usually last all day long so bring an EzUp and if they allow coolers then bring some drinks and snacks. chairs and a dong kennel to make sure you dog is safe and put away so he doesn't have to stress out all day with being out. there is usually always food there but if your a "healthy eater" bring your own or prepare to leave to get something to eat. in most shows they try to accommodate for the kids and have fun games and activities for them to do as well. People watching at its finest haha there are some awesome people and some not so great people some are there to show there dogs and get out of there others are there to hang out with a bunch of there buddies. If you plan to "set up" i would get there early so you dont get stuck by the trashcans or bathrooms and plan on being all day. Hope you enjoy it and hope you have a good time

    we go to a lot of out of state shows and go all over to the different hosts each one is different but the same always late lots of people and lots of dogs. im interested to see your take on them after you attended one
